Erik the Viking



1989-erik-the-viking-poster1

Directed by: Terry Jones
Written by: Terry Jones
Cast: Tim Robbins, Mickey Rooney, Eartha Kitt, Terry Jones
Studio: Orion Pictures
Genre: Comedy, Adventure, Fantasy
Official Site:
Plot:

Review:

Now this is a film long since lost in the annals of time. Much like the excellent 'Jabberwocky' movie by Terry Gilliam this movie has also been somewhat herded into the Monty Python film collection as a kind of extension to the Python universe. The same could also be said for the movies 'Yellowbeard' and 'Timebandits', unfortunately neither 'Erik' or 'Yellowbeard' are any good really and both fall flat, although this is better than the Chapman vehicle...[more]...

Getaway



Getaway_ver3_xlg

Directed by: Courtney Solomon
Written by: Sean Finigen
Cast: Ethan Hawke, Selena Gomez, Jon Voight
Studio: Warner Bros.
Genre: Action
Official Site:
Plot:

Review:

So despite this films title the plot isn't actually about a getaway no Sir, its more along the lines of someone having to complete missions in a time limit or his wife dies. Yep that's the whole plot in a nutshell, Ethan Hawke is trapped within a souped-up GT500 Super Snake Mustang and must do whatever the mystery voice on his phone says or his kidnapped wife gets it. There are two problems with this concept...1. its completely ridiculous and 2. Hawke picks up Selena Gomez along the way...[more]...

Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer



2007-fantastic_four_rise_of_the_silver_surfer-1

Directed by: Tim Story
Written by: Mark Frost
Cast: Jessica Alba, Michael Chiklis, Chris Evans, Ioan Gruffudd, Andre Braugher
Studio: Fox
Genre: Action
Official Site: www.fantasticfourmovie.com
Plot:

Review:

The dreary sterile foursome are back...rubbery bloke, fat rock thing, the flaming flamer and woman with really obvious fake blue contacts and blonde hair. This time in a bid to actually make an interesting film they've added an actual antagonist...or have they. Oh no my mistake he actually turns out to be another good guy whom everybody thought was bad. So who is the bad guy this time?? well I guess its Doom again...oh no he's working with the Four...until the very end when we get one single battle and a large cosmic cloud, oh geez Hollywood...[more]...

Fantastic Four (2005)



2005-fantastic_four-4

Directed by: Tim Story
Written by: Mark Frost, Simon Kinberg
Cast: Jessica Alba, Michael Chiklis, Chris Evans, Ioan Gruffudd, Julian McMahon
Studio: Fox
Genre: Action, Comic Book
Official Site: www.fantasticfourmovie.com
Plot:

Review:

Not THE Fantastic Four oh no...its simply Fantastic Four here, much cooler. So this is the first major production for the Four after the now cult Roger Corman B-movie effort. Team of clever people head out into space and get hit in the face by an interstellar cloud of space stuff and obtain super powers. Naturally one of them becomes twisted and evil with his new found powers and much fighting ensues, that's it, that's all there is...[more]...

X-Men: The Last Stand



2006-x_men_3-1

Directed by: Brett Ratner
Written by: Zak Penn, Simon Kinberg
Cast: Hugh Jackman, Patrick Stewart, Shawn Ashmore, Daniel Cudmore, Alan Cumming, Famke Janssen, James Marsden, Ian McKellen, Anna Paquin, Rebecca Romijn-Stamos, Kelsey Grammer
Studio: Fox
Genre: Action, Comic Book

Plot:

Review:

So what happened to the Nightcrawler? he was a good soft centred character with potential in the last film, what the Hadoken?? So yet again after the following smash success of the sequel, which may or may not have been a surprise, we get the trilogy bookend to the saga. Naturally we are pummeled with lots more characters, even bigger set pieces, even bigger action and various big deaths scenes, oh and Brett 'Rush Hour' Ratner takes over the reigns...which means it could well stink...[more]...

Genre: Action

Plot:

Review:

So Toad and Sabretooth are dead and buried then it seems, guess they weren't that popular huh. Not surprising seeing as they were the worse characters from the last film. So after the unexpected smash of the original film we got this sequel adding more characters, more effects and a bit more much needed action...[more]...

X-Men

Directed by: Bryan Singer
Written by: David Hayter, Christopher McQuarrie, Joss Whedon, Tom DeSanto
Cast: Hugh Jackman, Patrick Stewart, Ian McKellen, Famke Janssen, James Marsden, Halle Berry, Anna Paquin, Tyler Mane, Ray Park, Rebecca Romijn-Stamos, Bruce Davison
Studio: 20th Century Fox
Genre: Action

Plot:

Review:

Well this certainly feels a bit dated these days, the very first X-Men film, the backbone of the modern comicbook adaptations craze, the one that started it all. Had this film not done as well as it did then we possibly wouldn't have all the superhero flicks we have today. Heck just looking at the films poster shows how far this genre has come, its positively awful, bland and extremely unimaginative, the two groups just standing there against a city skyline, eh...[more]...

Van Helsing



2004-van_helsing-3

Directed by: Stephen Sommers
Written by: Stephen Sommers
Cast: Hugh Jackman, Kate Beckinsale, Richard Roxburgh, David Wenham, Will Kemp, Kevin J. OConnor
Studio: Universal
Genre: Horror, Adventure
Official Site: www.vanhelsing.net
Plot:

Review:

Pretty much the ultimate modern day homage to all the classic Universal monster flicks of the 30's and 40's, more specifically the few monster mash movies that were made including all the legendary monsters. Stephen Sommers takes his own hammy over the top Indiana Jones-esque schlock style from 'The Mummy' franchise and plumps it firmly into the Transylvanian homeland of Dracula, no CGI sparred. Oh and Kevin J O'Connor is brought along too yet again...[more]...

Spider-Man 3



2007-spider_man3-1

Directed by: Sam Raimi
Written by: Michael Chabon
Cast: Tobey Maguire, Kirsten Dunst, James Franco, Thomas Haden Church, Topher Grace, Bryce Dallas Howard, Dylan Baker, Elizabeth Banks
Studio: Sony/Columbia
Genre: Action, Comic Book
Official Site: spiderman.sonypictures.com
Plot:

Review:

So I think the main number one big ginormous flaw in this movie is the fact they use too many villains and plots, I'm sure we can all agree on this. Way back in 1992 a certain young Mr Tim Burton had free reign to create the sequel for his smash hit 'Batman'. In doing so he stuck in two main villains alongside his own creation...The Penguin, Catwoman and Max Shreck. This seemed to start a massive trend that has continued to this day! Following on from this initial idea many or most superhero flicks seem to have at least two villains as standard, sometimes more! and this is where this film implodes...[more]...

Directed by: Sam Raimi
Written by: Alvin Sargent
Cast: Tobey Maguire, Kirsten Dunst, Alfred Molina, James Franco, Elizabeth Banks, Bruce Campbell, Rosemary Harris, J.K. Simmons, Vanessa Ferlito, Ted Raimi, Dylan Baker
Studio: Sony/Columbia
Genre: Comic Book Action
Official Site: www.spiderman.sonypictures.com
Plot:

Review:

So after the massive success of the first film and fears about a low budget horror director taking the helm put to rest, amongst other things, we get the obligatory sequel. A second chance for another Spider-Man thriller with better effects, better sets, better costumes, better CGI...better everything, but still just a tad exactly the same as the first film...[more]...

Review:

Hey anybody remember those really old Sam Raimi Spider-Man films? you know there were three of them and I think they were quite popular at the time. Ah who cares now we have a much better rebooted franchise which isn't exactly the same right? errr yeah, sure...[more]...

5 Spidey movies and, gotta say I still think this holds up as the most tonally consistent and best one overall.

Pompeii

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]...
