Gordon ‘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.

|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.||7|
|Sex Lives of the Potato Men||2004||The shortness of the film is its only saving grace.||4|
|Shade||2003||Twists and double crosses are far too obvious, though Stallone excels (and is probably too good for the film).||5|
|Shenmue The Movie||2001||Made completely from in-game cutscenes, removing the gameplay has also removed everything good about the game. Leaving a shallow story and some awful dialogue.||4|
|Shooter||2007||An exciting, though bog standard thriller.||6|
|Sicario||2015||A great first half descends into hysterical girl fights bad good-guys for doing bad things for good reasons.||6|
|Sightseers||2012||A dark, funny and surprising film with some amazing scenery and top notch performances.||8|
|Silent Running||1972||An engaging tale despite terrible acting, shoddy effects and a bizarre soundtrack.||6|
|Sing Street||2016||Trademark John Carney, but can't hit the heights of Once. Not helped by being unable to connect with the lead character.||6|
|Slash||2016||Despite its desperation to be edgy and subversive it misses the mark and ends up like an episode of Dawson's Creek at an erotic fan-fiction and cosplay convention.||4|
|Sleeper||1973||At some points a masterpiece and others a bore. Half Keystone Cops and half 1984, it doesn't do enough with either to fully excel.||6|
|Snowden||2016||Overdoes the 'Ed is righteous' and 'Government is evil' but, but tells and interesting (albeit one-sided) account.||6|
|Son of Saul||2016||Harrowing and fantastically told, but not as emotional as you may expect.||8|
|Special Correspondents||2016||Too middle of the road to make any waves. A few good lines but Gervais needs to tap into his subversive side much more.||5|
|Spotlight||2015||Interesting and hard hitting, but certainly not entertaining. If a film is going to bring so much reality to the pursuit of justice then they may as well have made a documentary.||7|
|Star Trek Beyond||2016||Throws everything good from Into Darkness into the bin and instead goes for plotless, mindless action.||4|
|Star Trek Generations||1994||Apart from the typical Kirk all-American hero rubbish this is a great cocktail of SciFi fun.||7|
|Stay Alive||2006||Die in the game, die in real life. More like die watching the film and you are saved from watching the rest of the film.||4|
|Straight Outta Compton||2015||Skips too much of the real story as it ensures that Dre and Cube come off as angels and the manager as the devil.||7|
|Street Kings||2008||A Forrest Whittaker action scene, who saw that coming??||5|
|Suddenly||1954||A cracking noir, despite a little too much signposting of the plot by today's standards.||7|
|Sully||2016||A rather pointless biopic that lives in the gap between slightly dull and mildly exciting.||5|
|Super||2010||Click to see our detailed review.||8|
|Swallows and Amazons||2016||The poor acting and awful script are blown out of the water by the sheer irresponsibility of the plot.||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.||8|
