There’s a new trailer out for The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug – with some serious elven action and a few old friends met along the way. Didn’t recall them in the book, but hey-ho.

White House Down… the first cop/prez buddy movie?

Roland Emmerich of Independence Day fame brings us an action thriller called White House Down, in which militias take on the US Federal government in Washington DC in a kind of Lethal Weapon cop buddy movie where one of the buds happens to be the US President. Lots of explosions, as you’d expect from the […]

Prometheus (2012) (DVD review).

Finally settling down to watch Ridley Scott’s prequel to ‘Alien’, I ended up being rather ambivalent about it. He scores well on visuals but very poor on emotional content. Whether this is his fault or that of his scriptwriters or somewhere in between, I haven’t decided yet. Having the story set in 2093, which is […]

We’re the Millers, trailer (going weeding).

An amusing-looking comedy, We’re the Millers, from Rawson Marshall Thurber where a loser small-time pot dealer is forced to smuggle a huge shipment of weed up from Mexico into the USA, so puts together a fake family to do it. Does anyone feel an RV trip to danger coming on? Stars Jennifer Aniston as a […]

The Iceman (film review by Frank Ochieng).

Director/co-writer Ariel Vromen’s ‘The Iceman’ will leave audiences cold with its chilling account of a monstrous family man whose balancing act of a level-minded head of household provider and psychotic slayer-at-large will have one scratching their befuddled noggin. Vromen’s stirring portrait of a societal menace in contract killer Richard Kuklinski (highlighted by an astounding and […]

Star Trek: Into Darkness (a film review by Mark R. Leeper).

As a piece of intelligent science fiction J. J. Abrams’s new ‘Star Trek: Into Darkness’ film is only middling, but as an action film it is really quite good. It has some arresting images, some very engaging character development and perhaps two or three too many explosive action scenes. A saboteur apparently within the Starfleet […]

Byzantium… Gemma Arterton with bite.

Gemma Arterton and Saoirse Ronan (the lass from the much under-rated Hanna) play mother and daughter vampires on the run in present day Earth, the twist being that vampires are a male-only club, with any women vamps hunted down and murdered. So Gems and Saoirse have been on the run for centuries. Think Highlander meets […]
