The Family



The-family-poster1

Directed by: Luc Besson
Written by: Luc Besson
Cast: Robert De Niro, Michelle Pfeiffer, Tommy Lee Jones, Dianna Agron
Studio: Relativity Media
Genre: Action, Comedy
Official Site:
Plot:

Review:

This is a Luc Besson film so you know right from the off there's gonna be a slick gun fight somewhere in here. Question is does this story require such a style from the action director?. This is a slow paced story about mobsters, an adaptation of a novel called Badfellas which kinda spells it out for you really doesn't it...[more]...

Gremlins 2: The New Batch

Directed by: Joe Dante
Written by: Charles S. Haas
Cast: Zach Galligan, Phoebe Cates, John Glover, Robert Prosky
Studio: Warner Bros.
Genre: Horror, Comedy
Official Site:
Plot:

Review:

Six years after the original smash hit and Dante comes along with this newish sequel. The intro to the film is an animated Looney Tunes segment with Bugs and Daffy which is meant to hint at the wackiness you were about to see, not good...[more]...

The original is 30 yrs old next year!

Must have missed the bit about the Futterman's hehe still feels forced though as they didn't seem like close friends of Peltzer and Kate, just town folk. Not the type of people who would come stay with them for a small holiday anyway.

Thanks for the comment, I'll be doing the original soon :)

No problem.

Yeah it's kind of a cop-out, probably just so that if there was ever a sequel(like this one) they could appear in it. I love both movies, my recollection of 2 is it was awesome and so balls-out the way they took it to an extreme with all the new creatures. But I could definitely see how the real in-jokey, slapstick comedy stuff would disappoint those looking for a more darker, hard-edged sinister quality to these monsters. Like in that NPP review show. Interesting to think if they ever did a remake if they'd go with a serious, gritty R-rated take as opposed to Dante's satire.

CGI Gremlins would stink.

CGI Gremlins would stink.

Listening to the podcast now :)

I liked the light hearted angle but it just went too far, the self referential stuff is horrible I thought.

Riddick



Riddick-one-sheet

Directed by: David Twohy
Written by: David Twohy
Cast: Vin Diesel, Karl Urban, Katee Sackhoff, Jordi Mollá, Bokeem Woodbine, Dave Bautista
Studio: Universal Pictures
Genre: Action, Science-Fiction, Thriller
Official Site:
Plot:

Review:

The chronicles of Riddick continue where they left off from in the second film. I'm glad to say the powers that be have decided to get back to the roots of Riddick this time. The first film was a surprise hit and a decent alien monster survival clash. The second film then got too big for its own boots and went off the scale with over the top cheesy fantasy nonsense. This time we're back to survival mode with plenty of grit...[more]...

Studio: Paramount
Genre: Comedy

Review:

This was the first film to really introduce me to Will Ferrell back in the day, its hard to think when this film came out he wasn't a big name star. Twas also the first time I saw Ben Stiller's dad on the big screen, or anywhere really, I hadn't yet discovered the joys of 'The King of Queens...[more]...

Missing in Action II: The Beginning

Directed by: Lance Hool
Written by: Steve Bing, Larry Levinson, Arthur Silver
Cast: Chuck Norris, Soon-Tek Oh, Steven Williams, Bennett Ohta
Studio: Cannon Films
Genre: Action
Official Site:
Plot:

Review:

Well if that title doesn't tell you all you need to know I don't know what will. Both of these films were filmed at the same time, back to back, but for some odd reason the powers that be decided to release the sequel first then this film as a sequel prequel. Why exactly I don't know as it makes no sense whatsoever, I don't think there were any issues so why muddle things is a mystery...[more]...

Missing in Action

Directed by: Joseph Zito
Written by: James Bruner
Cast: Chuck Norris, M. Emmet Walsh, David Tress, Lenore Kasdorf
Studio: Cannon Films
Genre: Action
Official Site:
Plot:

Review:

Chuck's first main franchise and one of his classic actioners. Only two years after the release of 'First Blood' you can see where this idea main have spawned from eh. In fact a script by James Cameron intended for the Rambo franchise was the inspiration for this very film so there. But since then this film itself has been copied many times, the ever popular one man army with a big gun...[more]...

Cast: Chuck Norris, Billy Drago, John P. Ryan, Richard Jaeckel, Begonya Plaza
Studio: MGM
Genre: Action

Review:

Or known as The Colombian Connection but that's way too cheesy for me, but cheese is the name of the game here folks. Yep 'McCoy' is back and ready to take down some major drug kingpin scum. Funny thing is yet again despite the film title there isn't actually much Delta Force action. Again it all happens right at the end for the big finale, there's even less Delta Force action than in the first film! maybe they should of left out the Delta Force 2 bit in the title...[more]...

Cast: Steve Carrell, Catherine Keener
Studio: Universal
Genre: Comedy
Official Site: www.the40yearoldvirgin.com
Plot:

Review:

If ever there was a one joke film...So as you may have guessed this is all about a dude who is the ripe old age of 40 and has yet to have jiggy jiggy. Just looking at the cast line up and director for this film you know exactly what to expect comedy wise, there's gonna be infantile toilet humour and lots of sexual innuendos...[more]...

Review:

Probably one of the most underrated 'sports' or fun games you can play which I haven't done since I was in school. I have no idea if there are any actual proper dodgeball leagues/competitions like in this film but I think there should be...[more]...
