Pompeii



Hr_pompeii_6

Directed by: Paul W.S. Anderson
Written by: Janet Batchler
Cast: Kit Harington, Emily Browning, Jared Harris, Kiefer Sutherland
Studio: Summit Entertainment
Genre: Action, Adventure, Drama, Romance
Official Site:
Plot:

Review:

Ah what better way to honour a true historical disaster by turning it into an action flick with the tagline 'This will blow your mind'. Although this tag seems to have vanished and has been replaced with 'From the ashes a hero will rise' which doesn't really make a lick of sense to me. But of course there's always 'A city will fall, a hero will rise', which again doesn't really add up does it...oh boy I really do sense pending doom here...[more]...

Cutthroat Island



1995-cutthroat-island-poster1

Directed by: Renny Harlin
Written by: Robert King, Marc Norman
Cast: Geena Davis, Matthew Modine, Frank Langella, Maury Chaykin
Studio: MGM
Genre: Period, Adventure
Official Site:
Plot:

Review:

Now this was back in the day when Renny Harlin was still a reasonably good director of sorts, think hard. This was also a time when Geena Davis was still a famous-ish star with her own action vehicles, remember her?. For this bombastic pirate adventure she teams up with the American version of Cary Elwes in Matthew Modine and together they sail the seven seas blowing the shit outta everything...this must have influenced Michael Bay's little brain in ways we can't imagine, oh wait...[more]...

Bruno



2009-bruno-1

Directed by: Dan Mazer
Written by: Sacha Baron Cohen
Cast: Sacha Baron Cohen
Studio: Universal Pictures
Genre: Comedy
Official Site: www.meinspace.com/bruno
Plot:

Review:

The third and final film of Cohen's main trio of characters he created for the Ali G show on TV. After the disappointing movie of Ali G Cohen wisely opted to stick with the plot formula that he used for his second film Borat which was a success. Like Borat this film is again a series of cringe-inducing sketches/setups strung together by a flimsy plot which doesn't really matter, its all about the embarrassing sequences dotted throughout...[more]...

I, Frankenstein



I_frankenstein_ver5_xlg

Directed by: Stuart Beattie
Written by: Stuart Beattie
Cast: Aaron Eckhart, Kevin Grevioux, Miranda Otto, Bill Nighy, Yvonne Strahovski, Jai Courtney
Studio: Lionsgate
Genre: Horror, Thriller
Official Site:
Plot:

Review:

Jesus bananas...I thought this type of film died out a long time ago, I mean seriously how dated is this entire concept! Do I even need to state which two movies this is clearly based around? Of course we all know why this is so familiar, because its an adaptation of Kevin Grevioux's graphic novel, which in turn is merely the same spiel as his previous creation 'Underworld'. All he has done here is change the battling supernatural creatures of the night...and what's with this title...[more]...

Lame reboot

True, but the visor coming down like that is a nice touch. Having that on the Bottin/Weller version for a sequel would be pretty cool methinks.

So way back in...whenever, we were given the news of a remake for the ultra violent uber satirical comicbook styled sci-fi 'Robocop', directed by Arsene Wenger, wait what?! One hoped twas a poor joke but unfortunately as you all know it wasn't, so here we are now...'I wouldn't buy that for a dollar' hehe...no seriously its a line in the film...[more]...

Bill and Ted's Bogus Journey



1991-bill-and-teds-bogus-journey-poster1

Directed by: Peter Hewitt
Written by: Chris Matheson, Ed Solomon
Cast: Keanu Reeves, Alex Winter, William Sadler, Joss Ackland
Studio: Orion Pictures
Genre: Comedy
Official Site:
Plot:

Review:

I do believe I saw this film at the cinema having no clue what it was about, I merely loved the visuals the trailer threw at you. Much like the original film I again watched this over and over during my youth and loved the adventure. You can clearly see from the first scene this film has totally gone down the colourful comicbook visual route but at the same time has opted for a slightly darker approach. The first film was fun for all ages but this time the bogus journey is aimed more for teens methinks...[more]...

Bill & Ted's Excellent Adventure



1989-bill-and-teds-excellent-adventure-poster1

Written by: Chris Matheson, Ed Solomon
Cast: Keanu Reeves, Alex Winter, George Carlin, Terry Camilleri
Studio: Orion Pictures
Genre: Sci-Fi, Comedy
Official Site:
Plot:

Review:

This could quite possibly be one of the most original and well created comicbook style movie franchises that didn't actually start out originally as a comicbook. Yep believe it or not this cult franchise started out with the first film which was ingeniously written by two fellas called Matheson and Solomon, this film was not adapted from a comicbook source...[more]...

The Legend of Hercules

Directed by: Renny Harlin
Written by: Renny Harlin
Cast: Kellan Lutz
Studio: Nu Image
Genre: Action, Adventure, Fantasy
Official Site:
Plot:

Review:

The film formerly known as 'Hercules: The Legend Begins' which scarily makes you think there might be sequels in a possible beefcake franchise. Aaaaaand also even more scarily known at one time as 'Hercules 3D' which not only makes me shudder at the thought of how ridiculous a gimmick that would be, but the fact they would probably make 3D sequels too, brrrrrr! me blood runs cold at the thought of it...[more]...

Kick-Ass



Kickass-poster5

Directed by: Matthew Vaughn
Written by: Jane Goldman, Matthew Vaughn
Cast: Nicolas Cage, Christopher Mintz-Plasse, Clark Duke, Chloe Moretz
Studio: Lionsgate
Genre: Action, Superhero
Official Site: www.kickass-themovie.com
Plot:

Review:

The world of the visually violent comicbook movie probably first kicked off with 'Blade' way back in 1998 (honourable mention to the 1989 Punisher), although this film wasn't really ultra violent and filled with profanity. After that along came 'Watchmen' which offered a very realistic take on the superhero genre and was pretty gritty. Since then there hasn't really been that much until this graphic novel adaptation popped up with huge amounts of real violence and bucket loads of naughty words. It was like 'Robocop' for the comicbook genre...[more]...

Gravity

Studio: Warner Bros
Genre: Drama, Science-Fiction

Plot:

Review:

Well here we are, the big Oscar winner, the talk of the town, so it seems. My brother stuck this on the Bluray the other night when I was at my folks, so without any warning I was thrown into orbit alongside the ever annoying Bullock and Hollywood lapdog Clooney. One thing was for sure, it was gonna be pretty...[more]...

Hmmm I enjoyed this more than you obviously. Yes Sandra plays quite similar characters. I haven't see so much of Clooney to be honest.

Necessary Roughness

Studio: Paramount
Genre: Sports, Comedy
Official Site:
Plot:

Review:

So...is this an episode of Quantum Leap following the constant adventures of 'Sam Beckett'?. No?! well it sure as hell seems like it as the ever cuddly Scott Bakula portrays the same character he's always ever portrayed with the exact same haircut too...geez dude!. So lets not beat around the bush here, this is the late in the day 'Major League' clone that shamelessly rips every cliched idea from that film whilst attempting to look all innocent by turning it into a college football flick...[more]...

Studio: Universal Pictures
Genre: Comedy

Plot:

Review:

Well alongside his fame and fortune Sacha Baron Cohen has also managed to achieve such a high level of notoriety with his urban character, that the actual town of Staines changed its name to Staines-upon-Thames to get away from the negativity. That's pretty impressive Mr Cohen, you made an English town change its historic name, is that funny...[more]...
