Dwarves now drinking at the Green Dragon Inn. Smaug not invited.

The Hobbiton Movie Set – where The Hobbit was filmed – has just opened The Green Dragon Inn, the ribbon cut by none other than The New Zealand Prime Minister, John Key (yes, they take things that seriously). Now tourists as well as dwarves can get some of that Shire ale down their necks. Heck, […]

Man of Steel – Superman (really) returns in new trailer.

The new Superhero movie, Man of Steel, is looking like a powerful step up from the last reboot. But then is the first British Superman (Henry Cavill), so what do you expect. Well done for keeping the British end up, sir. This bad boy has Zack Snyder as director and Christopher Nolan (all those lovely […]

Connected (2012) (movie review).

‘Connected’ is a story with two unfolding plots. One is Science Fiction and the other is a love story. But the love story gets in the way of the Science Fiction story and the glacial pace of the telling gets in the way of the love story. This film is nearly two hours long and […]

Lone Ranger? Don’t be a stranger! Second trailer.

One of the early superheroes of the Wild West is coming back our way via next year’s The Lone Ranger film. This oddity has Johnny Depp as Tonto (the American Indian community must be so proud) and Armie Hammer as the USA’s answer to Zorro. I used to have this pair as Action Men-style plastic […]

In Star Trek Into Darkness, actor Cumberbatch is… eskimo red shirt John Harrison?

This new photo comes out way with the Cumberbatch character shown as ‘John Harrison’ – who appeared in about twelve episodes of the classic Trek as a red shirt, usually in the background, or as part of a landing party. John Harrison was meant to be an ethnic Eskimo – which, for all of Cumberbatch’s […]

Hitchcock (film review by Mark R. Leeper)

‘Hitchcock’ is the story of the great director, his marriage, his relationships with his starring actresses and the making of his most easily remembered film, ‘Psycho’. Combining film history, rumor, folklore, fiction and speculation, Sacha Gervasi directs John J. McLaughlin’s adaptation of a book by Stephen Rebello. We will never know how much of this […]

Oblivion… first trailer for Tom Cruise flick.

No sooner do we have the Planet of the Apes-ish poster for this science fiction film showing Tom ogling a broken-down New York of the future, than the trailer comes our way – some would say leaked, but who are we to judge? To me, this one has echoes of the old Silent Running film, with […]

Star Trek Into Darkness… first trailer here!

The first proper trailer for Star Trek Into Darkness slaps into the video-sphere, complete with images of Star Fleet HQ going into the air (in flaming pieces) and lots of Enterprise crew running around looking scared, angry and moody. If you want to know which baddie actor Cumberbatch plays, read our super spoiler here. If […]

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!
