Movie: Knights of Badassdom (2013)

| July 26, 2014

knights_cover

Over the past few years, Live Action Role Playing, just like Cosplay, has gained more popularity and isn’t quite the niche activity it once was.  This may well explain the number of films that use this scene as their basis that have appeared relatively recently, such as Lloyd the Conqueror and Unicorn City. The plot […]

Television history has several stories of series returning to the air or making the feature film jump, after concerted fan efforts.  The classic example is Star Trek, becoming a phenomenon, while relatively recent examples include Firefly (with the Serenity feature film), Futurama, and Arrested Development, after a 7 year gap.  A similar 7 year gap […]

Movie Review: Under The Skin (2014)

Watching Under The Skin is much the same as going to an art gallery. Some paintings resonate with you and some don’t. Writer and director Johnathon Glazer’s Under The Skin is without a doubt a work of art and every individual that sees it will have a different reaction. Glazer has made a great science fiction film and, at the same time, created an arthouse film that isn’t pretentious and that doesn’t insist that it is more one genre than the other. It is just what you find it to be.

Movie Review: The Grand Budapest Hotel (2014)

| June 27, 2014

The Grand Budapest Hotel

It is rare nowadays that a director can be relied upon to deliver films of a constant quality, unless of course you consider Michael Bay’s constant poor output. Delivering constantly good quality films, however, isn’t seen that often, but Wes Anderson (Rushmore, The Royal Tenenbaums, Moonrise Kingdom) is one of those rare people.

Movie Review: 22 Jump Street (2014)

22 Jump Street keeps what worked in 21 Jump Street, but changed enough to make the sequel work its own story. It may not be a “better than the original” type of sequel, but it is a good movie that compliments its predecessor, and it’s hilarious.

Movie Review: Willow Creek (2014)

Bobcat Goldthwat crams his hat into the over bloated ring that is the found footage genre with the Bigfoot themed Willow Creek. Jim and his girlfriend Kelly are visiting the infamous Willow Creek, the alleged home of the original Bigfoot legend (the tale of huge ape like creatures that roam the forests of North America). It was there, in 1967, the legendary beast was captured on film and has terrified and mystified generations since.

A Bunch Of Fives: Terribly Annoying Sidekicks

| June 8, 2014

Sidekicks in movies are always risky. When they work, they work. But, when they fail… Oh boy, does it kill a film. After punishing myself by going back and reliving these sidekicks (which by the way, I’m sure the producers sold these sidekicks as ‘hilarious’) antics, I’ve come up with five of the most awful […]

Movie Review: X-Men – Days Of Future Past (2014)

| May 21, 2014

It says much about how far comic book movies have come and how comfortable mainstream audiences are with reboots that we have reached a stage where a Days of Future Past movie, featuring two teams of X-Men from two established cinematic versions of the franchise, can be made. That the film is directed by the man who helped usher the X-Men onto the silver screen in the first place is almost uncanny.
