Film Review: Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom (USA, 2018) Is An Action-Horror-Monster Movie Mashup

June 19, 2018

In 1993 Steven Spielberg brought dinosaurs to life on the big screen in Jurassic Park. And for all its puppetry and animatronics and cinema wizardry then, it astounded us. Now in 2018 Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom establishes that dinosaurs are now part of the world around us. It also makes us want to empathise for the plight of the dinosaurs but let’s be frank here, really all we want is to see them wreck things and eat people.... Continue Reading

April 25, 2018

The last ten years of the Marvel Cinematic Universe has been building up to this, Avengers Infinity War, and this film is nothing short of a non-stop juggernaut of a blockbuster that refuses to hold back its punches. Strap yourselves in because this may turn into a blithering emotional crazed over-analysed mess… but I promise this is a spoiler free review.... Continue Reading

Film Review: Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 (USA, 2017) evokes the weird wonderment of the original

April 25, 2017

Whilst the general consensus is that the Marvel cinematic universe as a whole is one of the more consistent entities for audiences and critics alike, their track-record for delivering underwhelming sequels (at least compared to their predecessors) is hard to quarrel against.  Iron Man 2, Thor: The Dark World, and Avengers: Age of Ultron are all arguably lesser products than their forerunners, so it only seems feasible that there be a sense of caution when approaching Guardians of the Galaxy Vol.2....

Dave Bautista on Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol 2, family units, unintentional comedy, improvising and getting into shape

April 20, 2017

When Guardians Of The Galaxy was released in 2014 it was considered a gamble, a bunch of rag-tag characters including a talking raccoon and a tree that says only three words. They were barely known outside of the comics so Marvel was taking a huge risk, but it paid off and the film was yet another box office success for the studio. Now considered one of the hotly anticipated sequels for this year, Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol. 2, sees our space-misfits back together again. In the lead up to the film’s release we caught up with Dave Bautista who plays Drax The Destroyer, the super strong alien who takes everything literally and the comedic golden nugget of the first film; to discuss family units, unintentional comedy, improvising and getting into shape....

Get to know Mantis and Star-Lord’s baby daddy “Ego: The Living Planet” before watching Guardians Vol. 2

April 18, 2017

After watching Guardians of The Galaxy the day it hit cinemas in July of 2014 (yes, I feel older and did you know Justin Bieber is 23 now?), I said to myself “I want more, this is going to be pretty massive, I reckon that Groot Tree might be a hit as well”. My mate looked at me and said “I don’t see a tree that only says three words being a big hit? But I can see the shirt merchandise happening”. We were both wrong and right, the film was a critical and commercial success, and sold plenty of merch to boot. It seemed that this little-known sleeper cell of super heroes that had been in comics for so many years gained global recognition overnight.... Continue Reading

Film Review: Passengers (M) (USA, 2016) is far from the grand space opera many will be expecting

December 31, 2016

Similar to how the recently released Allied arrived in cinemas preempted by an action-heavy advertising campaign that proved somewhat misleading, Passengers is far from the grand space opera many will be expecting.  Instead of a sci-fi outing that’s more brawn than brains, Morten Tyldum‘s intriguing film is surprisingly simple, personal, and (mostly) effective....
