The Desolation of Smaug… first pic.

No sooner has Peter Jackson finished teasing us with the first of The Hobbit movies, he’s now started teasing us for the second film… The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug. Here’s the first photo of a certain hairy-footed fellow in a certain dragon’s lair, on a big blooming pile of gold. Ah, that’s what every […]

The Hobbit… we like big dragons and we cannot lie.

Smaug makes an appearance in the new trailer for The Hobbit. He’s a dragon, by the way. Likes: big piles of gold in his cave under the mountains. Burning human towns. Dislikes: dwarves that sing too much. Thieving hobbits. Our movie-watching Xmas is shaping up nicely!

The Hobbit… new fighting fit trailer.

And there’s yet another new trailer out for The Hobbit, this time featuring some mighty Hobbit (and dwarf) fighting action. See the swords fly! And the media are still drip-feeding their ‘early reviews say this sucks’ message. Ho hum.

The Hobbit… here, son, ‘ave this blade.

A new trailer for the Hobbit where Gandalf arms his diminutive questing companion up with a sword… Sting is it? It’s interesting that the media seem to be trying to spread a ‘This movie sucks’ message based on supposed awful early reactions at test screenings. We’ll hold our opinion until we’ve actually seen the film, […]

Merlin no more!

The current series of Merlin will be the last as BBC One’s fantasy television show reaches its conclusion this Christmas 2012… so no 6th series, folks. The family fantasy drama will bow out with a bumper two-part finale. Series five opened to a Camelot at the height of its ‘golden age’, but a menacing omen […]

Life Of Pi (2012) (film review).

Capsule: ‘Life Of Pi’ joins ‘Jonathan Livingston Seagull’ (1973) and ‘The Little Prince’ (1974) as being an adaptation of a philosophical book that reached for big meanings and it is not a lot more profound. Ang Lee’s film of Yann Martel’s novel ‘Life Of Pi’ is a visual feast, well-acted and with very fine use […]

Game of Thrones 3rd season… cheapest trailer ever?

Gee, did HBO run out of budget for the season three trailer or something? Did they give the job to some intern and he was just learning Adobe Premiere? There are teaser trailers, and then there are teaser trailers. Next time, just get the camera and point it a white wall with a cut-out of […]

Oz the Great and Powerful second trailer (a decent one at last)!

Here’s the first real non-teasery trailer for the Oz the Great and Powerful movie. This one comes across as one man’s redemption from himself – imagine an unreformed 19th century Patrick Jane thrown into Oz and having to turn things around without being able to do real magic. Sounds fun. Looks colourful!
