G.I. Joe: Retaliation (Frank’s Take) (film review).

Okay…so one realises that the acquired taste for the turgid testosterone-driven ‘G.I. Joe: Retaliation’ is not quite sophisticated for the cash crowd on Wall Street. In actuality, it may be deemed intellectually inferior to the impressionable minds in the kiddie-coated neighborhood at ‘Sesame Street’. Be that as it may, ‘G.I. Joe: Retaliation’ is back with […]

Olympus Has Fallen (Frank’s take) (film review).

Welcome to Olympus Has Fallen…or as the general movie-going audience may refer to it as Die Hard in the White House! Clearly another over-indulgent and action-packed political thriller with a big name cast and a thirst for blood and bravado, Olympus Has Fallen clamors for a sense of free-style absurdity in its popcorn pleasing pomposity. […]

Jack the Giant Slayer (film review) (Frank’s Take).

Fee…Fi…Foe…Fum…I detect an unfavorable critique from the blood of a disenchanted American movie critic! What do you know…some giants are rather perceptive after all, huh? Well, perception is not necessarily on the radar for director Bryan Singer’s bloated bedtime blockbuster ‘Jack The Giant Slayer’, a colourful clunker set to the fairy tale flourishes of arbitrary […]

The Wolverine… claws out.

And here’s the first trailer in full for The Wolverine movie – none of that ten second teaser nonsense, we’ve left that dead and bleeding in a ditch somewhere with adamantium claw marks in it.

Oz The Great And Powerful  (Frank’s take) (film review).

As a family entertainment, Disney’s ‘Oz The Great And Powerful’ is the stunning feast for the eyes visually and should be digested as smoothly as cotton candy on a summer day at the amusement park. No one can argue with director Sam Raimi’s (2002’s ‘Spider-Man’) take on the festive and legendary Land of Oz where […]

The Call (Frank’s Take) (film review).

Filmmaker Brad Anderson’s woefully generic psychological thriller ‘The Call’ is about as monotonous as a continual dial tone. The making of a legitimate tension-filled suspense piece was there for the taking: the stressful atmosphere of an emergency 911 call center and the desperate souls that call it in the wake of various imminent dangerous circumstances.

Iron Man 3… Mandarin, doesn’t speak Chinese.

A rather non-Sino-looking and sounding Mandarin is the focus of the latest Iron Man 3 film trailer, but we won’t hold that against him, much.
