The Hateful Eight



The-hateful-eight-poster1

Directed by: Quentin Tarantino
Written by: Quentin Tarantino
Cast: Jennifer Jason Leigh, Kurt Russell, Samuel L. Jackson, Bruce Dern, Demian Bichir, Walton Goggins, Michael Madsen, Tim Roth, Channing Tatum, Zoe Bell, Gene Jones
Studio: The Weinstein Company
Genre: Action, Crime, Independent, Western
Official Site:
Plot:

Review:

Quentin Tarantino's eighth movie, it just happens to have eight in the title and its another western, clearly smitten with the genre after 'Django Unchained'. Indeed this movie was originally going to be a sequel to said movie, which could of worked out well, possibly better than this methinks, but during the writing process fate took its course. Instead we have this slow burning murder mystery, of sorts, that brings together new and old cast members from Tarantino's past, whilst being a love letter to old school 70 mm film...because he can presumably, no other reason...[more]...

Krull



1983-krull-poster1

Directed by: Peter Yates
Written by: Stanford Sherman
Cast: Ken Marshall, Lysette Anthony, Freddie Jones, Francesca Annis
Studio: Columbia
Genre: Fanstasy
Official Site:
Plot:

Review:

Coming off the back of the massive massive Star Wars hype train was this transatlantic cult, a blend of classic fairytale fantasy and good old fashioned science fiction (kinda unique at the time). I remember seeing this on the telly back in the day (must have been late 80's I guess) and being quite scared by it, I never really saw all of it, just the dark imagery of the Beast and his eerie Ringwraith-esque minions. I even remember seeing the VHS in the old videoshops back in the early days, up on the top shelve with other grown-up looking covers (for the time obviously). Yes even the cover gave me the willies too, but can you blame me, its pretty grotesque and vivid really (and a spoiler...[more]...

love this film saw it in 83 when i was like 11, huge promotion at the time in N.Z(free tickets involving Chocolate bars I think) and everyone saw it. Underrated Fantasy Sci Fi.

The Last Witch Hunter



Tlwh-sdcc-poster-01-large

Directed by: Breck Eisner
Written by: Cory Goodman
Cast: Vin Diesel, Rose Leslie, Michael Caine, Elijah Wood, Joseph Gilgun, Isaach Bankole
Studio: Aperture Entertainment, Summit Entertainment
Genre: Action, Adventure, Fantasy
Official Site:
Plot:

Review:

Vin Diesel comes along with a new character for a new franchise, the fact that it simply feels just the same as all his other characters is somewhat unfortunate, Yep that's correct, this might as well be a prequel to his Riddick character, Riddick in medieval times and Riddick in the our present. Or the mumbling Toretto, or the mumbling Xander Cage...you see where I'm going with this. My point is, Vin Diesel can't really act and all his performances are virtually the same, the same mumbling hairless lump of meat...[more]...

Scouts Guide to the Zombie Apocalypse



Scouts_guide_to_the_zombie_apocalypse_poster_art

Cast: Tye Sheridan, David Koechner, Sara Malakul Lane, Patrick Schwarzenegger
Studio: Paramount
Genre: Comedy, Horror
Official Site:
Plot:

Review:

Well this came outta nowhere, in fact it hasn't even been that long since I discovered its existence. Love the films title, easily the main thing that lures you in, it intrigues and you want to know more. It totally has that cheesy, tacky, low rent, B-movie vibe in the title alone, on one hand that does help the movie because you instantly know what to expect, on the other it can also hinder the movie because its yet another low rent, B-movie zombie flick, and there's a shit-tonne of those around...[more]...

Skin Trade



Skin-trade-poster

Directed by: Ekachai Uekrongtham
Written by: Gabriel Dowrick
Cast: Dolph Lundgren, Tony Jaa, Ron Perlman, Michael Jai White, Peter Weller
Studio: Magnolia Pictures
Genre: Action, Crime, Thriller
Official Site:
Plot:

Review:

What tickles me about this is the fact that Dolph apparently read about the horrors of human trafficking, mainly one case where some girls were left for dead inside a vehicle on the US/Mexican border, and decided to bring it to the worlds attention. A noble thing to do for sure, only he did this via this utter pile of dribble of an action flick. The fact that the human trafficking part of the plot is only window dressing for a simple revenge thriller says it all really. It doesn't bring the horror of human slavery to the forefront of cinema, it uses it simply for a good plot device, something new to have fights about. What also made me laugh was reading about a possible sequel to this shit, the movie has an open ending so indeed you could make another, but who the fuck is gonna watch a sequel to this?? (yes I realise the irony of me saying that after I just watched this movie, move along...[more]...

Studio: Paramount Pictures
Genre: Action
Official Site:

Review:

The 90's, the era of many pointless, tacky and stupid action flicks. I submit to you exhibit A, firstly, bloody stupid title, I mean what the hell is that supposed to mean? hard rain. What is the rain so heavy and hard that is both soaks and hurts you? Is the rain really tough and well 'ard that is comes down wearing a Burberry tracksuit and pinches your mobile phone?? Anyway so the hook of this run of the mill action heist was the fact its set within a major storm and flooding, Die Hard in soaking wet clothes or Die Hard with pneumonia...see, I can think of cool film titles too...[more]...

The Ridiculous Six

Cast: Adam Sandler, Will Forte, Steve Buscemi, Taylor Lautner, Terry Crews, Dan Aykroyd
Studio: Netflix
Genre: Comedy, Western
Official Site:
Plot:

Review:

Yes that's right, I've seen the fabled new, one time, controversial Adam Sandler movie, all the way through! who wants to touch me? (yes I also realise I just totally dated my own review with this dated gag reference, had to be done). So yeah...its a dumb western filled with blatant stereotypes, corny routines, obvious gags and it treats women as nothing more than sexual objects, but in all honesty what did you expect? Firstly its an Adam Sandler movie, and secondly, it has 'ridiculous' in the bloody title! its literately saying to you, this movie is gonna be daft as shit, you have been warned. So why all the fuss I don't know...[more]...

Return to Oz



1985-return-to-oz-poster1

Directed by: Walter Murch
Written by: Gill Dennis, Walter Murch
Cast: Fairuza Balk, Nicol Williamson, Jean Marsh, Piper Laurie
Studio: Buenavista
Genre: Fantasy
Official Site:
Plot:

Review:

Ah, the long forgotten sequel, of sorts, to the classic 1939 movie starring Judy Garland. Now, this little gem of a movie was actually loosely based on the novel The Marvelous Land of Oz by L. Frank Baum and in part his other novel Ozma of Oz. The plot takes place six months after Dorothy's (Fairuza Balk) original adventure to Oz (in the year 1899) and sees her struggling with insomnia. She is sent off for electric shock treatment at some spooky clinic because in this era people didn't know any better, she isn't being punished, people just thought these methods helped. Anyway, Ozma appears and helps Dorothy escape during a frightful storm, in the midst of the panic Dorothy leaps into a fast flowing river and is swept away. Exit the real world, welcome to the fantasy zone. Dorothy awakes after the storm, but she is no longer in Kansas, she is now once again in the magical land of Oz...[more]...

Monty Python's The Meaning of Life



1983-monty-pythons-the-meaning-of-life-poster1

Directed by: Terry Jones, Terry Gilliam
Written by: Terry Gilliam
Cast: Graham Chapman, John Cleese, Terry Gilliam, Eric Idle
Studio: Universal
Genre: Comedy
Official Site:
Plot:

Review:

This was the last movie to feature all the original Python's together before the death of Graham Chapman, it was also the groups last movie altogether, there were no more after this unfortunately. Clearly the decision was also made to go back to their roots with this movie. The more coherent story angle that was used in their previous two films was jettisoned and their good old fashioned collection of surreal sketches was used as the main basis. The main big difference this time was the added bonus that the movie was in fact more of a musical number, albeit a more twisted dark musical of course (South Park eat your heart out...[more]...

Review:

Checking back into the Hotel Transylvania, such a lovely place, plenty of room, any time of year, you can find it here. Yes all your favourite monsters are back once again, same setting, same sort of spooky gags, but this time things have obviously moved on since we last visited, for the better? hmmm debatable. Oh and everyone's favourite comedian is back too! Kevin Jam...no Adam Sandler returns with more top quality tomfoolery...in voice form...hurray...[more]...

The Peanuts Movie



Peanuts_joblo_snoopy

Directed by: Steve Martino
Written by: Charles Schulz
Cast:
Studio: 20th Century Fox
Genre: Adventure, Animation, Comedy, Family
Official Site: http://www.peanutsmovie.com/
Plot:

Review:

The legendary Charles Schulz comicstrip gets a modern day movie adaptation care of 20th Century Fox and Blue Sky Studios, with two members of his family behind the story, yet despite that last bit of info, I was still worried. You'd be forgiven for being worried too in this day and age. I cringed at the thought of this movie in all honesty, it terrified me, growing up with Snoopy and co, how could the modern day Hollywood monster do this epic creation justice? Thoughts of newly created PC characters crowbarred in, lots of hip hop music, dreadful big name voice work with pointless cameos, oh my God! you could just see it coming. Luckily none of that actually did happen (amazingly...accept for the music), so lets be happy...[more]...

The Transporter Refueled



Transporter-refueled-poster-new-imax

Directed by: Camille Delamarre
Written by: Bill Collage
Cast: Ed Skrein
Studio: EuropaCorp
Genre: Action
Official Site:
Plot:

Review:

Refueled (spelt wrong) because the franchise has been...refueled, refreshed, revitalised, rebooted...get it? clever huh (ahem!). Frank is back and ready to errr...transport things once again, only this time he's played by newcomer Ed Skrein. It seems Statham realised what a trashy mess this franchise was and decided to bail, probably a good decision there matey. So what are we left with now, well it appears to be a rather cheap and tacky looking reboot chock full of terrible action sequences, wait...yes I'm right...[more]...

Tomorrowland



Tomorrowland-nposter-gallery

Directed by: Brad Bird
Written by: Brad Bird
Cast: George Clooney, Hugh Laurie, Raffey Cassidy, Britt Robertson, Judy Greer, Tim McGraw, Kathryn Hahn
Studio: Walt Disney
Genre: Science-Fiction

Plot:

Review:

Another movie based on a Disney theme park ride? blimey. Well its not actually a ride, let me clear this up. Tomorrowland is actually part of the Magic Kingdom Park, it makes up one of six themed lands within the Magic Kingdom, the others being Adventureland, Frontierland, Liberty Square, Fantasyland and Main Street USA. Each of these lands obviously feature rides, stalls, and places of interest based on the individual themes, hence Tomorrowland features famous rides like Space Mountain. The entire area has a 50's Jetsons type appearance to it which is used in this movie, although I don't think the movies plot is based on anything specific within Tomorrowland, I believe they have just used the name and theme park stylings for the basis of a sci-fi fantasy story (I think...[more]...

Hot Pursuit



Hot_pursuit_poster

Directed by: Anne Fletcher
Written by: David Feeney
Cast: Reese Witherspoon, Sofia Vergara, John Lynch, Rob Kazinsky
Studio: Warner Bros.
Genre: Comedy
Official Site:
Plot:

Review:

OK so we all know the stereotypical buddy action flick, generally the stereotypical buddy action cop flick, laced with adult humour. Twas the staple diet of the good old days back in the 80's and through to the 90's, these days the genre has been a bit quite. Why? well because every bloody idea has been done and the entire notion has literately been drained dry, all that is left is trying to come up with unique and quirky double teams for the leads. Although it must be said, the winner of that buddy cop action flick pairing must go to Jay Leno and Pat Morita in 'Collision Course' way back in 1989, nothing more unusual than that double team...[more]...
