Pain & Gain (Frank’s Take) (film review).

Filmmaker Michael Bay continues to tap into the spinal cord of his frenetic flicks that toss around manufactured cheese and chills with forceful and frivolous flair regardless of the noisy or nonsensical factor. Bay faithfully follows this very same familiar formula with the action-comedy crime caper ‘Pain & Gain’ that takes an impish and raucous […]

Marvel’s The Avengers (2012) (DVD review).

With the films based on Iron Man, Hulk, Captain America and Thor, they were all leading up to one thing, a film featuring them all as they form The Avengers. I’m surprised that they didn’t call the film ‘The Mighty Avengers’ if for no other reason than to get away from any copyright infringement with […]

In the House (Frank’s Take) (film review).

French filmmaker Francois Ozon has always dipped his toes into the provocative pools of persuasion regarding various titillating subject matters. While exploring a variety of genres that ranged from employment-related satire (‘Potiche’) to psychosexual thrillers (‘Water Drops On Burning Rocks’), Ozon has maintained a targeted concentration on the sensationalistic elements of his edgy cinematic stories.

The Lords Of Salem (Frank’s Take) (film review).

Heavy metal-hedonist-turned-horrormeister Rob Zombie’s bombastic B-movie schlock ‘The Lords Of Salem’ is not what one would call a crowning achievement in the flaccid filmography of the macabre moviemaker. In the twisted tradition of Zombie’s deranged ditties such as ‘House Of 1,000 Corpses’, ‘The Devil’s Rejects’ and of couple of throwaway thrills in his ‘Halloween’ installments, […]

Oblivion (Frank’s Take) (film review).

The boisterous space-aged yarn ‘Oblivion’ is a post-apocalyptic popcorn pleaser that may be met with mixed reception depending on your definition of tolerance for rousing, recycled sci-fi cinema. On one hand, the positive outlook is that ‘Oblivion’  boasts what moviegoers routinely expect from a typical Tom Cruise vehicle — a flashy actioner with hotshot Tom […]

Another super-adult horror flick with vampires called Byzantium, in which Gemma Arterton and Saoirse Ronan play mother and daughter vampires cruising small-town America for their next meal. One to get your teeth into, perhaps?
