Movie Review: The Machine (2013)

| September 8, 2014

Sci-fi comes in many forms and while there have been several big budget films lately, the most common place you’ll find a sci-fi film is in the low-budget market. The Machine is a British film, which means more often than not that we’re in the low end of the budget range, but this isn’t always a bad thing as good ideas can flourish regardless of budget.

Movie Review: Machete Kills (2013)

| August 23, 2014

When Quentin Tarantino and Robert Rodriguez made Grindhouse in 2007, they linked the two movies within it with 70′s style adverts for fake exploitation B-movies. One of these was Machete, which proved so popular that Robert Rodriguez ended up making the film in 2010. Now, Machete returns once again in Machete Kills…

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Review: Shell Shocked

TMNT 01

Ever since Nickelodeon bought the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles brand from Mirage Studios back in 2009, the franchise has been enjoying a second renaissance of sorts. The IDW comic book series is an exciting and entertaining retelling of the Ninja Turtles mythos. The CGI Nickelodeon show takes the best bits from the 1980s cartoon and mixes […]

Guardians of the Galaxy Review: Hooked on a Feeling

| August 4, 2014

GOTG 02

For better or worse, Guardians of the Galaxy is a Marvel Studios film. It walks like a Marvel Studios film, talks like a Marvel Studios film, and my God, you can even say it smells like one too. And there’s nothing initially wrong with that. When the James Gunn-directed flick opens with Peter Quill (Chris Pratt), or Star Lord, […]

Movie Review: The Raid 2 – Berandal (2014)

| August 1, 2014

The Raid: Redemption burst onto the international scene with quite a reputation for frenetic and violent content, and was unexpectedly directed by a Welshman, Gareth Evans, despite being made in Indonesia. Does The Raid 2: Berandal have quite the same impact?

Movie Review: Guardians Of The Galaxy (2014)

GOTG-poster

Marvel took a large gamble on Guardians of the Galaxy. A not very well-known comic series that bringing to life would require some real outlay, a director who, up until now, never had the budget he had here, and how the material is presented in a very quirky, non-comic book fashion. I think it’s safe to say that […]

Movie Review: Guardians Of The Galaxy (2014)

GOTGFeatured

As the latest installment in Phase 2 of Marvel’s cinematic universe, there’s a lot of pressure on Guardians of the Galaxy to succeed. It does bear Marvel’s hopes for the more cosmic side of its comic back-catalogue and to prove that they can launch a new franchise without relying on cameos from Iron Man, Captain […]

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 […]

Movie Review: Veronica Mars (2014)

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 […]
