El Chicano (2019) [a film review by Frank Ochieng]

The super-hero film craze has proven to be popcorn-pleasing box office gold over the last several years or so within Hollywood circles. Plus, street cred dramas basking in drugs and gangs tend to capitalise on the gritty, realistic aspects of confrontational entertainment. Additionally, what are the chances that supplying your super-hero spectacle with macabre edginess […]

Swamp Thing (DC movie trailer).

Here’s the first trailer for the DC Swamp Thing film. This is one comic-strip and character that I could never get into, even back in the Golden Age of my youth. It seemed a complete waste of perfectly good pulp paper – like trying to engage with the emotional journey of the contents of a […]

Assimilate (horror movie trailer): all your bodies are ours.

In the horror-scifi movie Assimilate, some good old Invasion of the Body Snatchers/The Thing-style action comes into the fore when a group of people shooting a documentary inside their city realise their fellow citizens and neighbours are being murdered and replaced by alien creatures who are perfect duplicates of the original victims.

Aladdin (5th movie trailer) but was it magic for you?

Here’s the next trailer for the Disney live-action movie for Aladdin – the 5th trailer, which certainly makes this well-trailed. I should hate this toon-to-real type-thing on ‘cash cow’ principles alone, but it’s actually growing on me. The oddly much-maligned Will Smith looks like he’s doing a stand-up job in this one.

Spider-Man: Homecoming (2017) (Blu-ray film review).

‘Spider-Man: Homecoming’ leads on from the previous ‘Avengers’ film, totally ignoring how Peter Parker gained his powers and the death of his Uncle Ben. The weirdest thing is at the rate his Aunt May is getting younger, I’m almost expecting her to turn up attending the same university he’ll be going to. Don’t kids have […]

The Curse Of La Llorona (2019) [a film review by Frank Ochieng]

  While the protagonists in director Michael Chaves flimsy frightfest ‘La Llorona’ feel the so-called ominous curse at large, some moviegoers may feel their own brand of cursing courtesy of a hackneyed horror film that revisits the tired tale of macabre mythology. However, ‘The Curse Of La Llorona’ has somewhat of an excuse to exist given […]
