703897_3869314863718_419580601_o-ConvertImage 2Gordon ‘SirClive’ Sinclair is the founder of MovieMuse. A child of the 70s with his heart in the eighties, his dream is to one day wake up like Alex Drake and relive that glorious decade.

A long time classic video gamer, Gordon founded Replay Events, a company dedicated to showcasing the best retro consoles and computers of the last 40 years.

With his unhealthy love of Stallone movies and an obsessive need to watch every film ever nominated for a major award, he is aways ready with an (un?)educated opinion.

Away from MovieMuse Gordon is an avid follower of Liverpool and Huddersfield Town football clubs and lives in Halifax with his Star Wars loving fiancée Nancy.

Gordon is responsible for the MovieMuse website and co-edits the MovieMuse podcast.

PosterMovieYearCommentsRating
The Girl With All The Gifts 2016 An interesting take on the zombie/viral outbreak movie that unfortunately gets a little too soppy in places. 3.5
The Jungle Book 2016 Click to see our detailed review. 4
The Lady in the Van 2015 Adopts an interesting style by using two Alan Bennetts and has some great performances. 4
The Legend of Barney Thompson 2015 Takes a long time to get going but ends up a great twsisted black comedy. Great performance from an unrecognisable Emma Thompson. 3.5
The Intern 2015 Too 'nice' for its own good. 2.5
The Greasy Strangler 2016 Totally absurd but also totally engrossing. Sick, silly and fun. 4
The Gunman 2015 Starts as your run of the mill black-ops for hire flick and gets progressively worse as the film drags on. 2
The Nice Guys 2016 Great 70s styling, terrific performances and some brilliant dialogue and scenes. 4
The Fog 1980 The whole film is spelled out in the opening scene killing any excitement or intrigue. The excellent score deserved a better film. 2.5
The Firm 1993 An enjoyable legal thriller despite its unchallenging screenplay and bare bones acting. 3
The Double 2011 Relatively forgettable until the final twist, but just about does enough. 3
The Double 2014 Textbook Ayoade in style and humour. Dark, intelligent and some great performances. 4
The Danish Girl 2015 Click to see our detailed review. 3.5
The Brand New Testament 2015 Odd and up-lifting. A delightful tale of living rather than existing. 4.5
The Bourne Legacy 2012 Whilst Damon's Bournes are personal and about how he deals with the system, this takes the opposite route and looks at the system and how the subjects fit into it. Unfairly marked down by comparison, it is a good film in its own right. 3.5
The Big Short 2015 The funniest 'factual' film you will ever see. "The truth is like poetry ... and most people fucking hate poetry". 4.5
ARQ 2016 Generic time looper that adds nothing of interest to the genre. 2.5
The Accountant 2016 A schizophrenic movie that wants to be Bourne, Rain Man, A Beautiful Mind and a RomCom all at once. 2.5
The Seventh Seal 1957 Mixes humour, philosophy and beautiful locations with its existential and religious ponderings to create a truly stunning film and one of the most memorable scenes in movie history. 5
Tank 432 2015 A tense thriller set in the confines of an abandoned tank. A little too similar to Ben Wheatley’s films, be good all the same. 3
Tango & Cash 1989 Over 25 years old and still holds up well with genuinely good humour and action. 3
Swiss Army Man 2016 A mad, odd, weird and magically wonderful film that proves Daniel Radcliffe's rare quality and brave film choices. 4
Swimming with Sharks 1994 One of the most 90s films you will ever see. Spacey is having fun, but is not believable in the role until he becomes the victim. From then on he excels. 4
Swallows and Amazons 2016 The poor acting and awful script are blown out of the water by the sheer irresponsibility of the plot. 2
