The Dark Knight Rises (2012) (DVD review).

I have to say I did wonder what the general viewer would make of the last part of this Batman trilogy, ‘The Dark Knight Rises’. Essentially, you’ve had the three stages of the Batman. His birth and source of training via Ra’s Al Ghul, his greatest battle against the Joker and Two-Face and now, his […]

The Impossible film review (Frank’s Take).

The Impossible film review (Frank’s Take).

The genre of the disaster film has always maintained a sense of destructive visual surrealism, penetrating action sequences, roguish intrigue and the occasional investment of emotional solace. Some of these kinds of wreckage movies manage to instill elements of camp, carousing sentiment and the excess of cautionary fate as well. Still, the cinematic aura of […]

Star Trek Into Darkness – 2nd trailer (you know: for Cumberbitches).

And the second two minute long trailer for the Star Trek Into Darkness movie has just arrived, with some footage that should please Cumberbitches… including a rather black-shirted Federation look for the evil one. Now, why forever could that be, I wonder?

The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey (2012) (movie review).

  ‘The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey’ is the first film of Peter Jackson’s follow-up trilogy to ‘The Lord Of The Rings’. The result is good, where great was expected. It has a lot of the virtues of the previous films, but does not offer a lot that the previous trilogy did not and where it […]

Pacific Rim – 1st trailer is Monster!

We like big Bots (or should that be mecha) and we cannot lie. If you want to know what Guillermo del Toro has been up to, then look no further than this Mecha versus Monster movie – a very Japanese genre of film given a very Western twist, as the world’s military combines to build […]

Dwarves now drinking at the Green Dragon Inn. Smaug not invited.

The Hobbiton Movie Set – where The Hobbit was filmed – has just opened The Green Dragon Inn, the ribbon cut by none other than The New Zealand Prime Minister, John Key (yes, they take things that seriously). Now tourists as well as dwarves can get some of that Shire ale down their necks. Heck, […]

Man of Steel – Superman (really) returns in new trailer.

The new Superhero movie, Man of Steel, is looking like a powerful step up from the last reboot. But then is the first British Superman (Henry Cavill), so what do you expect. Well done for keeping the British end up, sir. This bad boy has Zack Snyder as director and Christopher Nolan (all those lovely […]

Connected (2012) (movie review).

‘Connected’ is a story with two unfolding plots. One is Science Fiction and the other is a love story. But the love story gets in the way of the Science Fiction story and the glacial pace of the telling gets in the way of the love story. This film is nearly two hours long and […]

Lone Ranger? Don’t be a stranger! Second trailer.

One of the early superheroes of the Wild West is coming back our way via next year’s The Lone Ranger film. This oddity has Johnny Depp as Tonto (the American Indian community must be so proud) and Armie Hammer as the USA’s answer to Zorro. I used to have this pair as Action Men-style plastic […]
