Kingsman: The Secret Service



Kingsman-the-secret-service

Directed by: Matthew Vaughn
Written by: Matthew Vaughn
Cast: Colin Firth, Samuel L. Jackson, Michael Caine, Sofia Boutella, Corey Johnson, Taron Egerton
Studio: 20th Century Fox
Genre: Action, Adventure, Comic Book
Official Site:
Plot:

Review:

Ah the term 'loosely based', it crops up so often these days, and here we are again, another movie loosely based on a comicbook of the same name (almost, the comic is not called Kingsman, so I wonder where they got that). The films title explains it all really, yes its another action spy thriller and yes that means all the same spiel we've seen over and over and over again, oh and its a British concoction, so zero originality then...[more]...

Everly



Everly-poster

Directed by: Joe Lynch
Written by: Yale Hannon
Cast: Salma Hayek, Jennifer Blanc
Studio: Radius TWC
Genre: Action
Official Site:
Plot:

Review:

This is one of those movies you'd swear blind was directed by Luc Besson, you only have to look at the movies poster. The plot is not so much about a femme fatale but, as I'm sure you can guess, its about a female that does indeed manage to kill lots of ass. So, sexy female...check, sexy female brandishing huge guns...check, female character name is movie title...check...yeah that's about it really...[more]...

King Ralph

Directed by: David S. Ward
Written by: David S. Ward
Cast: John Goodman, Peter O'Toole, John Hurt, Camille Coduri, Richard Griffiths
Studio: Universal
Genre: Comedy

Review:

Back in the early 90's we got many family movies that offered lots of cheesy irritating laughs and child actors, the odd thing was many actually did really well. The original movie would somehow manage to become a reasonable hit (a different time), and those movies, in some cases, actually turned into franchises! Those same franchises then managed to knock out a semi-decent sequel or two before eventually disintegrating into utter trash with numerous straight to DVD sequels being churned out. The films I refer to would be 'Beethoven', 'Problem Child', 'Home Alone' and 'Free Willy'...mainly...[more]...

Monsters: Dark Continent



Posternot_available

Directed by: Tom Green
Written by: Jay Basu
Cast: Joe Dempsie, Johnny Harris, Sofia Boutella, Kyle Soller
Studio: Vertigo Films, Between The Eyes, International Traders
Genre: Documentary, Science-Fiction, Thriller
Official Site: www.facebook.com/monsters
Plot:

Review:

The original small budget British sci-fi was pretty much made entirely by Gareth Edwards, unfortunately he went on to much bigger things with Godzilla (and now a Star Wars spin-off), so he couldn't direct this sequel. This was probably the main cause of this movies downfall, the next would be everything else the new director and writer decided to do, or not do. I mean look at the films poster, looks fantastic right, troops on the ground in the desert, explosions behind them, monsters towering in the air, and above all that lots of chopper appear to be facing off against the monsters. It looks like a cheesy B-movie but it looks fun, false advertising much? I'd also like to ask why everyone calls these creatures monsters when they're clearly space aliens or extraterrestrial life. It sounds ridiculous because everyone knows monsters live under your bed...[more]...

Black Rain



1989-black-rain-poster1

Directed by: Ridley Scott
Written by: Craig Bolotin, Warren Lewis
Cast: Michael Douglas, Andy Garcia, Ken Takakura, Kate Capshaw
Studio: Paramount
Genre: Action, Thriller
Official Site:
Plot:

Review:

Ridley Scott's filmography up to this point was pretty diverse. A historical drama set in the late 18th century/early 19th century Europe, a futuristic space set alien horror, a futuristic neo-noir detective thriller and a pure swords n sorcery, wizards and demons, fantasy flick. 1989 saw his first foray into the more mainstream action thriller genre, although typically with Scott this production was a much more glossy and well made action thriller than your average offering...[more]...

Ex Machina



Ex-machina-teaser-poster-2-gallery

Directed by: Alex Garland
Written by: Alex Garland
Cast: Domhnall Gleeson, Oscar Isaac, Alicia Vikander, Corey Johnson
Studio: DNA Films
Genre: Drama, Science-Fiction, Thriller
Official Site:
Plot:

Review:

You could very well call this the UK equivalent of the grandiose Spielberg movie 'A.I. Artificial Intelligence'. The difference being this is a highly realistic and grounded science fiction story that isn't really a million miles from where we are today. What was surprising for me was the fact that its a British film, the cast were all unknown to me (often a winning move) and its Alex Garland's directorial debut! One thing is for sure, you'd never guess this was the directors first film, this looks like a Stanley Kubrick feature...[more]...

The King of Comedy



1983-the-king-of-comedy-poster1

Directed by: Martin Scorsese
Written by: Paul D. Zimmerman
Cast: Robert De Niro, Jerry Lewis, Diahnne Abbott, Sandra Bernhard
Studio: Fox
Genre: Comedy, Drama
Official Site:
Plot:

Review:

This movie came straight outta left field really, after two mean thrillers and hard hitting biographical, a black comedy felt like an odd turn. Scorsese was still kinda finding his feet at this point, almost at a fork in his career in what to do, his following two movies after this ('After Hours' and 'The Colour of Money') confirms this. From very raw emotional adult films, then branching out into a comedy, even with De Niro, seemed brave. Scorsese could of easily slipped into the mainstream realms at this time. 'After Hours' was another quirky black comedy, but the type of comedy that you could easily see Tom Hanks leading, whilst 'The Colour of Money' was most definitely a mainstream movie with the man of the moment Tom Cruise...[more]...

Ah man I love Apple Jacks and Pebbles but being in the UK I can't get them :(

They used to sell Lucky Charms here but that seems to have stopped.

Review:

So back in 1988 there was a highly quirky, sexy British crime heist movie with a mix of top cult British and American stars, it was a huge (and surprising) success. Nine years later the same team were back in this sort of sequel, or maybe prequel, no one was really sure. In the end it was just another comedy utilising the same cast, however, the novelisation of the film actually explains how both movies connect, but no one cares about the book so...[more]...

Review:

Holy Orc dung! another novel adaptation, and wouldn't ya know it...there is a whole string of sequels to this original book. I smell the stirrings of another Hollywood franchise folks, well that would have been the case if this hadn't bombed like a direct hit on your local cinema. Actually one of the first things that hit me was the use of the word spook in this movie. In America isn't that word a derogatory insult against African Americans? I'm surprised it wasn't altered...[more]...

Review:

Don't you just love these old 90's dystopian sci-fi thrillers that tried to predict the future of the internet. Looking back now its all so amusing and quaint to see these elaborate early CGI sequences showing us what cyberspace would be like, going online, networking, digital communication etc...Such spectacularly vast endless worlds of stereotypical neon lit computer imagery that both mesmerised and confused you. You had no clue how it all worked, what you did in there or where to go...but boy did it look really really cool...[more]...

Review:

Holy silhouettes the sequel finally arrives, a cool nine years after the original hit. A direct sequel that follows on from the original with all the characters we know and love, two stories from the original comic/graphic novel, and for some reason two entirely new stories. This time Tarantino does not direct anything leaving it to Rodriguez and Miller, whilst Rodriguez leaves the writing entirely to Miller...if any of that matters or you're interested...[more]...
