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

The true queen of teen torture and angst, novelist Stephanie Meyer, shows how to milk a mawkish melodrama while tapping into the cinematic psyche of adventurous adolescents everywhere. Clearly, Meyer has a proven track record of stroking the teeny-bopper tendencies in romanticism courtesy of her ‘Twilight’ phenomenon that has defined sensual cinema for young love-stricken […]

Dredd (2012) (DVD review).

The one major problem with the ‘Dredd’ film is the lack of humour. This is a mistake many amateur artists make when they include some Mega-City material using him in their sample portfolio, they only see the character and forget the environment he lives in. Judge Dredd puts an end to the chaos and mayhem […]

Bath Salt Zombies (DVD review).

‘Bath Salt Zombies’ is the latest ultra-low budget horror film from independent American director Dustin Wayde Mills. I reviewed his last movie, ‘Zombie A-Hole’ for SFCrowsnest six months ago and found it a partial success. ‘Bath Salt Zombies’ continues the grindhouse vibe of that film and reunites its two leading actors, Brandon Salkil and Josh […]

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 […]
