The Cannonball Run



1981-the-cannonball-run-poster1

Directed by: Hal Needham
Written by: Brock Yates
Cast: Brock Yates, Roger Moore, Farrah Fawcett, Dom DeLuise
Studio: Fox
Genre: Comedy
Official Site:
Plot:

Review:

This movie opens with a black Lamborghini Countach tearing down an empty highway, a sun-kissed highway at dawn, the sound of the engine thundering. Instantly the movies main soundtrack kicks in with its toe tapping beat, the bold stark red credits role, instantly you know this song is cool and you're gonna like it. The jet black Lambo sweeps over the horizon (now set against a clear blue sky), behind it, following closely is a blue Pontiac Firebird/Firebird Trans Am police car, both cars are ripping up the tarmac. By this point if you're attention has not been snagged, or you're not impressed by the sheer sex on wheels, then you're clearly not a petrolhead...[more]...

Wolfen



1981-wolfen-poster1

Directed by: Michael Wadleigh
Written by: David Eyre, Michael Wadleigh
Cast: Albert Finney, Diane Venora, Edward James Olmos, Gregory Hines
Studio: Warner Bros.
Genre: Horror, Thriller
Official Site:
Plot:

Review:

Adapted from a novel of the same name, yet after a bit of reading the movie is quite different from the book. With a title like this you'd think this film was about werewolves, but you'd be wrong. In fact it kinda depends on what source you go by, the book is sort of about werewolves, a species of creature that are descended from wolves, intelligent and probably more like werewolves than in this film. In the movie there are no werewolves and no creatures descended from the wolf line...[more]...

Last Knights



Lastknightsposterlarge

Directed by: Kazuaki Kiriya
Written by: Michael Konyves
Cast: Clive Owen, Morgan Freeman, Cliff Curtis, Aksel Hennie, Ayelet Zurer
Studio: Lionsgate
Genre: Action, Adventure
Official Site:
Plot:

Review:

The title doesn't inspire much does it, much like the drab 'First Knight', remember that? Anyhoo as you can probably guess this is all about medieval knights, the twist being its an adaptation of the classic historical Japanese tale, Forty-Seven Ronin. So its 47 Ronin...but with medieval knights, so predictable I'm amazed it hasn't been done already...[more]...

Paul Blart: Mall Cop 2

Directed by: Andy Fickman
Written by: Nick Bakay
Cast: Kevin James, Raini Rodriguez, Neal McDonough, Eduardo Verastegui, Daniella Alonso, David Henrie, Nicholas Turturro, Loni Love, Ana Gasteyer, Shelly Desai
Studio: Columbia Pictures
Genre: Comedy
Official Site:
Plot:

Review:

I guess it was inevitable that we would see a sequel, the first movie was quite good fun I can't deny, unsure how well it did but most things get sequels these days. Hell I'm sure there will be a third too, because all the bigwigs like to make trilogies, its great for DVD sales. But yeah...I did like the first movie somewhat, it was a reasonable idea, a mall cop thinking he's a real cop, trying to be a real cop, it worked on some levels...[more]...

Smokey and the Bandit II



1980-smoky-and-the-bandit-ii-poster1

Directed by: Hal Needham
Written by: Jerry Belson, Brock Yates
Cast: Burt Reynolds, Jackie Gleason, Jerry Reed, Dom DeLuise
Studio: Universal
Genre: Comedy, Action
Official Site:
Plot:

Review:

Hal Needham is back with Reynolds and all the gang for another dose of pedal to the metal, tarmac burning, high octane, highway speeding...I think. This time the movie has gone for a more all out comedy slapstick route, more along the lines of Needham's other movie 'The Cannonball Run', or dare I say, Disney's Herbie franchise...[more]...

The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies



The-hobbit-the-battle-of-the-five-armies2

Directed by: Peter Jackson
Written by: Philippa Boyens, Peter Jackson, Guillermo del Toro, Fran Walsh
Cast: Saoirse Ronan, Cate Blanchett, Martin Freeman, Orlando Bloom, Elijah Wood, Hugo Weaving, Ian McKellen, Christopher Lee, Richard Armitage, Andy Serkis, James Nesbitt, Rob Kazinsky, Jed Brophy, Aidan Turner, Ken Stott
Studio: Warner Bros
Genre: Adventure, Fantasy
Official Site:
Plot:

Review:

Here we are, the final chapter in this blatantly over-milked adaptation of the Tolkien Hobbit book. If you've been following this franchise up to this point (stupid thing to say really) then you'll know this movie completes the story arc for Smaug the dragon, Bard and Thorin. Sauron himself pops up along with Saruman to hint at what is to come in the follow up trilogy, after freeing Gandalf, but as the title suggests the main crux of this movie centres around the battle at Lonely Mountain for the treasures deep within...[more]...

A disappointing end to the trilogy. I like that the opening scene with Smaug and having it in the start of BOTFA but hate how he dies with the 'Black Arrows' i've not read books and thought it was silly knowing from DOS how he would be eventually be killed, they should've added something more than arrow shot dragon dead. A lame way for [imo] one of the best charcters in trilogy to go.

Good review.

Get Hard



Get_hard_xlg

Directed by: Etan Cohen
Written by: Etan Cohen
Cast: Will Ferrell, Kevin Hart, Alison Brie
Studio: Warner Bros.
Genre: Comedy
Official Site:
Plot:

Review:

Another throwaway comedy from Ferrell? yeah pretty much. Despite the fact this guy is mega famous and has made some solid movies, his filmography is top heavy with throwaway garbage, literately littered with trashy flicks. I find it weird that three of his worst movies happen to be about various sporting events, ice skating, tennis and NASCAR racing...[more]...

Run All Night



Runposterbig

Directed by: Jaume Collet-Serra
Written by: Brad Ingelsby
Cast: Liam Neeson, Ed Harris, Joel Kinnaman, Vincent D'Onofrio, Bruce McGill, Genesis Rodriguez, Boyd Holbrook, Holt McCallany
Studio: Warner Bros.
Genre: Action, Thriller
Official Site:
Plot:

Review:

Despite being over the age of 60 Liam Neeson is still, somehow, being pushed as a cinematic badass, a modern day Clint Eastwood. Its something that bemuses me frankly, I can understand him making the odd kickass flick (like Costner did), but Neeson has become this aged, one man army, action man franchise. The thing is, all his movies have been virtually the same! it started with him killing everyone in 'Taken' and now he kills everyone in everything, the invincible Irishman...[more]...

Nuns on the Run



1990-nuns-on-the-run-poster1

Directed by: Jonathan Lynn
Written by: Jonathan Lynn
Cast: Eric Idle, Robbie Coltrane, Camille Coduri, Janet Suzman, Doris Hare
Studio: Fox
Genre: Comedy
Official Site:
Plot:

Review:

Now this is a blast from the past, a real shoulder-mounted retro cannon slug to the crotch. Back in 1990 Coltrane and Idle were probably two of the funniest and most popular guys in the UK alongside other greats of the BBC. One was an ex-Python, say no more, the other a British TV favourite and with some small notable movie roles under his belt. I don't really recall how well it did at the box office but I remember watching it often as a kid, and enjoying the heck out of it. It was one of those movies that was shown on TV pretty often, usually cut but a regular early evening flick none the less...[more]...
