Frankenweenie film review (Frank’s Take).

Luscious and skillfully presented, filmmaker Tim Burton’s ‘Frankenweenie’ is a highly exquisite black-and-white stop motion animated 3D creepy caper that radiates in wicked-minded wit and wonderment. Clearly, ‘Frankenweenie’ may be Burton’s most imaginative and gorgeously playful films in many years. As an obvious tribute to the classic creatures of yesteryear in retro cinema, ‘Frankenweenie’ is […]

We detect a Plurality.

John DeNardo over at SFsignal points us in the direction of a rather spiffing science fiction short film, Plurality, about a future America where the internet is a lot more controlled and omnipresent than today. It’s enough to give Cory Doctorow nightmares! The movie was made by Ryan Condal and Dennis Liu – someone give […]

Get away clean by being dirty! Jason Statham’s Parker.

Here’s the trailer for Jason Statham’s new vehicle, ‘Parker’. He plays a crook that is just slightly nicer than the gang he falls out with and then tries to kill him. He goes back for revenge. Jennifer Lopez is on his side. Michael Chiklis certainly isn’t. Cue explosions and kick-ass thumping all round. Hope we […]

Solomon Kane film review (Frank’s Take).

Writer-director Michael J. Bassett’s brooding and bloated fantasy adventure ‘Solomon Kane’ is rather ambitious in its fire-and-brimstone presentation. The bone-crushing and blood-splattering spectacle is indeed committed to its rousing showcase pertaining to a fearless warrior, wicked sorcerers, curvaceous harlots, revolving thrones, discarded bodies and relentlessly murky battles — all set in the background of Merry […]
