The Lego Ninjago Movie (film review by Frank Ochieng)

The Lego film franchise had a nice run in its first two outings. The phenomenal response to 2014’s ‘The Lego Movie’ and, earlier this year, the popular emergence of ‘The Lego Batman Movie’ proved profitable and entertaining for the gimmicky concept that inexplicably captured the imaginations of youngsters and oldsters alike. The appeal for the yellowish block toy figures was […]

The 13th Friday (2017) (a film review by Mark R. Leeper).

A strange mechanical device proves to be a calendar of supernatural events and a gateway to a parallel world of pain and horror. In a plot of ideas not entirely fresh there are few surprises in this story and just about nothing unfamiliar in the first half of the film. Justin Price writes and directs […]

Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol. 2 (2017) (Blu-ray film review).

In many respects, ‘Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol. 2’ has a hard act to follow and that is ‘Guardians Of The Galaxy’ which doesn’t have a volume number. In some areas it is likely to fall down in and I guess having happy music throughout would be the biggest criticism. In the audio commentary, director […]

Batman And Harley Quinn (2017) (Blu-ray film review).

Harleen Quinzel aka Harley Quinn has now been part of the Batman universe for 25 years. Originating on ‘Batman: The Animated Series’ as little more than a walk-on part designed to complement another mad scheme from the Joker, Harley Quinn managed to find a fanbase and become a more prominent character within the world of […]

The Comic Book Film Adaptation by Liam Burke  (book review)

Liam Burke’s book, ‘The Comic Book Film Adaptation’, is different to others on the subject I’ve read in recent months as he has been able to interview, albeit briefly, and quote from various sources. I think the prize one in the introduction is from Paul Levitz who explains the problem of which version of Batman, […]

The Limehouse Golem (2017)    :  (a film review by Mark R. Leeper)

CAPSULE: A police detective stalks a serial killer in Victorian London and tries to connect it to a recent killing. The film feels like it was dipped in ‘Victorian atmosphere concentrate’. The movie takes itself very seriously indeed, but the viewer can look between the lines to see it as something of a romp. Peter […]
