House at the End of the Street (Frank’s Take).

Well folks…what is in store for you in the hackneyed horror flick ‘House At The End Of The Street ? The answer: nothing much that your ordinary generic and flatly delivered frightfest has not demonstrated countless times before. A basic boo-enhanced thriller that has all the scary element of a misshaped mushroom pizza topping, ‘House […]

Dredd 3D (Frank’s take).

The forgettable 1995 film ‘Judge Dredd’ (or as a majority of film critics and fans deemed it Judge Dread-ful) starring Sylvester Stallone was a flat and disjointed sci-fi spectacle that got a tepid treatment from the clueless handlers in Hollywood. Cheapened and hokey, ‘Judge Dredd’ was barely a footnote at the box office some seventeen […]

A hard Hobbit to break? New trailer!

Is this the 3rd new trailer for the first in the Hobbit trilogy of movies from Peter Jackson (how strange it still sounds to hear that word, trilogy, attached to the project), or the second? I’d go for third. There was a second trailer, but it was a bit of a swizz – a reworking […]

Super Hero Party Clown (Mark’s movie review).

An amiable, slight, and overly familiar story gives us a boy so shy he cannot talk to the girl he likes without wearing a costume. Eugene wears the superhero suit of Arachnid-Man at children’s parties. He is not really a tough dude, but plays one when hired for kids. He finds he is pitted against […]

Bryan Singer’s H+.

Bryan Singer is currently chomping through his H+. What is this, some new brand of mineral water created by the man that brought you many of the X-Men movies? No, it’s a web-only scifi series that could best be described as a cyberpunk future where the internet is in your mind and everywhere. And then […]

Arbitrage (Frank’s Take).

Arbitrage (Frank’s Take).

First-time director Nicholas Jarecki’s cynical financial fable ‘Arbitrage’ wants to take a suspenseful poke at the reckless rich and remind us of the duplicity behind the pompous privileged. In times of the incessant recession that is affecting disenfranchised people everywhere, one would think that ‘Arbitrage’ would be a timely and smart cautionary tale spotlighting class […]

Resident Evil: Retribution (Frank’s Take).

The predictable ritual of enduring the Resident Evil film franchise is a critical cross that most film critics have to bear. Think of it as the occupational hazard of the profession. Now in all fairness there are countless filmmakers that milk a movie series regardless of its repetitive, rancid quality. Certainly Len Wiseman immediately comes […]

Loopy for the Looper.

Here’s a behind the scenes video for the science fiction film Looper. This is a classic brain-throbbing time travel consequences movie with Bruce Willis being hunted by his younger self. Think Back to the Future crossed with 12 Monkeys, with added guns and attitude.

Hobbity goodness.

Peter Jackson has just released a whole slew of new cast photos from The Hobbit movie. Very nice. Of course, this one is going to be a hit – but I know a few die-hard LoTR fans (yes, you, Andy) who are not so chuffed about making a rather short novel like The Hobbit into […]
