Total Recall (2012) (DVD review).

Watching ‘Total Recall’ with its futuristic scenes, CGI of course, one is reminded of illustrations composed a century or more ago of how the future would appear. These pictures contained images of multi-storey blocks, much like London today, with railways in the sky and flying transport everywhere. This movie is somewhat like that but far […]

SFCrowsnest Cinema Sensation: The Best Films of 2012 (Frank’s Take).

As with any other movie year in review, 2012 had its share of exceptionally entertaining escapist fare on the big screen. For a handful of really inferior films there were stellar cinematic staples that critics and moviegoers basked in gloriously. True, attending the movies and finding worthy entertainment seemed to be pleasurable based on the […]

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 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 […]
