Riddick (film review) by Frank Ochieng.

In all fairness, ‘Riddick’ is not the first clumsy film franchise to not recognize how it overstayed its welcome and it won’t be the last neither. It all began with the birth of 2000’s ‘Pitch Blac’k, a rather half decent and taut sci-fi chiller that caught many by surprise in its tension-filled originality. The follow-up, […]

Stargate x 3 new movies, says Roland Emmerich.

Roland Emmerich is planning three new Stargate movies – but they’re going to be a continuation of the original movie franchise, rather than the various SG1/SGU/Atlantis TV series… will there be a part for Kurt Russell or James Spader? Looks like that’s a no, it seems. Oh well, you can’t have everything.

Passion (film review) by Frank Ochieng.

The problem with some legendary filmmakers is that when they let their guard down slightly and dip into uncharacteristic mediocrity the red flags start to wave. Could this be the case for an immensely revered movie mastermind such as Brian DePalma whose cinematic touch in the cinema scene from the 70s and 80s were among […]

Getaway (film review) by Frank Ochieng.

The high-octane hideousness behind ‘Getaway’ is indeed an on-screen traffic accident that will drive one to immediately rip up their auto club membership card. Sure, the majority of showy car chase capers are intentional escapist nonsense that most movie-goers gravitate to for the mindless, reckless fun. However, ‘Getaway’ applies the accelerator convincingly with its tedious […]

Link (1986) (DVD review).

‘Link’ had its origins way back in 1986 as a relatively low-budget movie but, now it has seen its way on to DVD, it is no longer missing, thus leaving us with the question being was this a good move or was it just a load of monkey business? The main actor Terence Stamp has […]

47 Ronin… 1 Keanu Reeves.

More trailerage from the 47 Ronin movie – a fantasy actioner where Keanu Reeves plays a Westernized Ronin leading a force of outlaws against a demonic ruler in Samurai-age Japan. Good old Keanu. Will this be Bill and Ted in Japan? We shall see.
