Air Middle-earth?

Air New Zealand has a tie-in to the new Hobbit film in the form of a faux safety video filled with Middle-earth types. Ah, the wags. You can tell the publicity is cranking up for the new Peter Jackson’s film’s Christmas release, can’t you?

John Dies at the End. Really!

And there’s a new trailer out for the exceptional slice of oddness that is the film John Dies at the End. This one is based on the novel of the same name by Jason Pargin and stars the ever reliable Paul Giamatti (who also pulled executive producer duty on the flick). It’s got demons entering […]

Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters – sweet, they aint!

The Red Band UK trailer for Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters is here in all its bloody glory. If you told me the title of this movie a year ago I would have thought you were taking the piss, but I guess they’ve made it, and here it comes. Kind of in the same vein […]

Cloud Atlas (film review) – Frank’s take.

In quoting the legendary Motown singing group The Temptations they insisted ‘…I’m doing fine on Cloud Nine…’ but it is too bad that the cinematic reactions may be mixed when wondering if moviegoers will be feeling the same vibes towards the sprawling yet inexplicably disjointed sci-fi spectacle ‘Cloud Atlas’. Woefully bloated, excessively jumbled and furiously […]

TV trailer for The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey.

Done much fighting? Hmmf. Thought as much! Ah, the dry humour of a dwarf with a battleaxe – the weapon, not his wife (females didn’t get much of a look-in in Tolkien’s works). Here’s the new TV trailer for Peter Jackson’s next epic, The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey, at any rate.

Argo film review (Frank’s take).

Now how does this particular saying go folks: ‘From yesterday’s laughing stock to today’s go-to genius?’ Well, this assessment certainly applies to director/actor Ben Affleck whose misguided moviemaking antics of yesteryear was frothy fodder for the tabloids, critics and moviegoers alike (ah, those ‘Bennifer’ years were something else, huh?) were a guilty pleasure distraction to […]

Iron Man 3 full first trailer.

Do we spoil you or do we spoil you? Watch the awesomeness that is the full Iron Man 3 trailer. He’s broken and out for the count. But can Tony Stark bounce back? Well, it wouldn’t be much of a movie if he couldn’t, would it?

Alex Cross – Frank’s take (film review)

The good news is that Tyler Perry has temporarily exchanged his trademark frumpy ‘Madea’ gowns for masculine guns in his latest trite conventional crime caper ‘Alex Cross’. However, the bad news is that Perry’s cinematic transition from garrulous cross-dresser to Cross crime-stopper is met with less than a marginal reception. Sure, many critics have criticised […]

Paranormal Activity 4 – Frank’s Take (film review).

Well, at least there is the consistency of churning out another repetitive ‘Paranormal Activity’ installment around the Halloween festivities that is still in vogue. Co-directors Henry Joost and Ariel Schulman (‘Paranormal Activity 3’, ‘Catfish’) are back at the creepy control panel for the fourth outing in ‘Paranormal Activity 4′, an empty-minded boofest that trudges along […]

Argo movie review (2012) (Mark’s take).

Argo – a film review by Mark R. Leeper Set during the 1979 Iran Hostage Crisis, ‘Argo’ tells a strange but true footnote to that history. Six United States citizens whom the Iranian revolutionary government wants dead have escaped from the United States embassy to the protection of the house of the Canadian ambassador. Now the […]
