If it's crap ... We'll tell you
For some, the summer blockbuster season didn't technically begin with The Avengers, it began with this film. There was certainly a lot of expectation for it, and a little hope that it would blot out the memory of the second instalment. However, there were many points being brought up too that threatened to…Continue

Two movies from this year to check out tonight, and you can probably guess which one perked my interest more to see. Well, to be fair, I also rented War Horse today, but that film's far too long to see tonight (it's already midnight here) so that will wait until tomorrow. Still, there should be plenty here to discuss, so let's dig right…Continue

A little late on this review, due to some family-related festivities over the weekend. But the extra long wait was well worth it, as the series continues to build upon the story and characters. And along the way, throw in some surprises as well. I have nothing to waffle on about this week, so I'll go right into the review.
Just as the title…Continue
Battleship is pretty much exactly what I was expecting. I could just see the writers shrugging when handed the premise and saying, "We got nothin'." It was a complete waste of two hours of my day sitting through this mess of boring CG propaganda.
The movie centers on Alex Hopper (Taylor Kitsch), a lieutenant in the U.S. Navy who encounters an alien invasion on what was to be his last day before they kicked him out of…

Firstly - a disclaimer before I enter the review. Looking back at my stance on the previous episodes, especially last week's one, I see that I've been a little too harsh on the series so far. It is still developing characters and setting up their arcs, while expending upon the world. I may have been a bit too critical on some aspects, and…Continue
You know.... one of the hardest traits to earn as a good reviewer, is to enter a film with an open and clear mind. That can be easier said than done however, especially if you've already heard poor reviews and articles relating to it, you tend to block most of it out, but the key words never fully leave your mind. So was the case with…Continue

I don't feel like I'm in a minority when I say that I've never seen the original Dark Shadows soap opera upon which this movie…

When the Avengers truly assembled for the first time in San Diego two summers ago, Robert Downey, Jr. boldly stated that this film was "the most ambitious movie [he's] ever seen", even over the phenomenon that was Christopher Nolan's Inception. It has taken four years to develop the main…Continue
