Movie Review – Twilight, Breaking Dawn Part 2

Movie Review – Twilight, Breaking Dawn Part 2

The last 'Twilight' film was horrible, just horrible, in that awesome kind of way. Yeah, doesn't make sense to me either. Bad acting, bad directing, bad visual effects, and bad writing, which felt like a 13 year old girl had written it, just made for a laughable movie, which I did often. But!

Movie Review – Robot And Frank

Movie Review – Robot And Frank

I hate missing my press screenings for films, and this movie was one of them, but I made sure I kept an eye out for its general release, and despite having to actually pay to see it this time, I was looking forward to seeing it.

Blu-ray Review – Abraham Lincoln Vampire Hunter

Blu-ray Review – Abraham Lincoln Vampire Hunter

When I first saw 'Abraham Lincoln Vampire Hunter' at its press screening earlier in the year, I went in thinking I'd see a fun film along the lines of 'Wanted', which is from the same director. I came out second guessing my love of that film, as this follow up film was so damn average!

DVD Review – The Speed Of Life

DVD Review – The Speed Of Life

I’m not exactly a nature documentary film fan, though I don’t mind watching them, it’s just seeing animals eat and have sex with each other isn’t exactly how I like to spend my viewing experiences.

DVD Review – Doomsday 2012: The End Of Days

DVD Review – Doomsday 2012: The End Of Days

The History Channel's special 'Doomsday 2012: The End Of Days' more than anything made me realize how much of a business doomsday prophecies are, and that once the 21st of December 2012 comes and goes, these shows and books on the 2012 subject will suddenly lose all value, both physically and men

DVD Review – History Of The World In Two Hours

DVD Review – History Of The World In Two Hours

'History Of The World In Two Hours' was a damn good watch, and seeing it all squeezed together in such a quick time makes you realize how everything is so intrinsically connected, from the beginnings of the universe till today.

Movie Review – Skyfall

Movie Review – Skyfall

'Skyfall', though not my favourite Bond film, as that still goes to the near perfect 'Casino Royale' from 1967...just kidding, I mean the 2006 version. But, what makes 'Skyfall' stand out from any other Bond film I've seen is that it's not like any other Bond film before it.

Movie Review – Beasts Of The Southern Wild

Movie Review – Beasts Of The Southern Wild

'Beasts Of The Southern Wild' was a very interesting film, and had one of the most amazing child performances I've ever seen, which could mean either an amazing child actor, an amazing director, or a bit of both.

'Eat Some Ice Creams! Do Some Bombs!'

'Eat Some Ice Creams! Do Some Bombs!'

A New Zealand fimmaker is trying to raise money to finish the post production on their documentary film 'Eat Some Ice Creams! Do Some Boms!', and it looks like it's the perfect summer time film! It also stars James Rolleston, the kid from 'Boy' and the Vodafone commercials!

Movie Review – Argo

Movie Review – Argo

Ben Affleck was not only great in ‘The Town’, I was stunned to see how good he was directing it! So his follow up feature was always going to have high standards to live up to.
