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!

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.

Pacific Rim monster goes on the attack.

Gee, no sooner do we get the new Pacific Rim film posters through, than  a second – and slightly more meaningful – trailer arrives for the big monster versus Mecha fighting flick. This is what mecha were born for… kicking the over-sized butts of great big alien invader things known as ‘Kaiju’. The mecha in […]

The Amazing Spider-Man (2012) (DVD review).

Forget about the trilogy of past years, this new production is very much better and tells the story of Spider-Man, the Marvel Comics hero, in a more comprehensive manner. The old Spider-Man was two-dimensional and frankly boring in parts, but the character played by Andrew Garfield is definitely three-dimensional and more complete. Okay, maybe a […]
