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

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, […]

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 […]

Bloody Christmas (DVD review).

Christmas is coming and the goose is going to get slaughtered, accompanied by quite a few others in this not so cheery movie where the main star is a guy wandering about in a Santa Claus outfit. Be warned, you won’t find great quality of acting, production, sound and anything else you might expect from […]

Men In Black III (DVD review).

After an absence of several years, it’s a welcome return for the ‘Men In Black’, our old friends who keep the planet Earth safe from alien marauders. Their nonchalant style and witty repartee coupled with ingenious special effects made the first two movies a delight to watch and number three is no exception. Will Smith […]

Jack The Giant Slayer trailer.

Bryan Singer’s Jack The Giant Slayer movie has a new trailer featuring the classic fantasy tale reimagined as only the X-man movie creator could… well, that’s what we were told, and we’re sticking with it. Hasn’t that bloke from Skins done well!

Red Dawn film review (Frank’s take).

Red Dawn film review (Frank’s take).

This is just what the cinema world was really clamoring for at this moment…a pointless and protrusive generic action war movie update based on a mildly serviceable mid-80’s military yarn from yesteryear. At least movie audiences got a kick out of 1984’s ‘Red Dawn’ that had some reasonable jingoistic kitsch to go along with its […]

The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 2 film review (Frank’s Take).

This may be an intentional play on words but the final segment of the ‘Twilight’ movie series literally bites. Of course avid fans of Stephanie Meyer’s young-adult fiction film franchise devoted to the gooey-eyed goings-on of vampire valentines Edward Cullen (Robert Pattinson) and Bella Swan (Kristen Stewart) may disagree with the not-so-favorable sentiment. Nevertheless the […]

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

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!
