Man of Steel (2013)
A savior, who fights In the big summer blockbuster, Man of Steel, the Superman origin story has been rethought. Hollywood blockbuster script writers draw on so many stories, it’s not surprising that this time the child from Krypton seems like Jesus. The plot hasn’t been changed but this...

The East (2013)

The East (2013)
The East is one of those frustrating movies. Frustrating in the way it seems to have a message dancing on the tip of its tongue, but doesn’t have the balls to blurt it out. Like two lovers awkwardly standing there unable to say “I love you”. Stripped of all its parts, it’s basically the...

Man Of Steel (2012)
Okay, first of all, nobody goes any further without looking over this. It’s time for someone else to have a go at reinvigorating the big boy scout AKA Superman for the big screen. This time it’s Zack Snyder in the director’s chair, working from a script by David Goyer (from a story...

Man of Steel (2013)
The greater the ambition, the harder it is to fulfill it. And Man of Steel is one very ambitious movie. An important theme early in the movie is whether the world is ready for a phenomenon like Superman. Clark Kent, being in his mid-twenties, and his parents tend to think that the world is not […]

The Last Stand (2013)

The Last Stand (2013)
Jee-woon Kim is one of my favourite directors, despite the fact that I’ve only seen three (well, now it’s four) movies from his filmography. Two of those movies are 10/10 experiences for me, I Saw The Devil and A Tale Of Two Sisters, and the other, A Bittersweet Life, is a solid 8/10. I was...

Iron Man 3 (2013)
For me, my favourite superheroes end up being The Big Three (Batman, Superman, Spider-Man) and then the rest get to fight for my attention at the level just below. I’ve always loved The Incredible Hulk, because I grew up with the TV show that I enjoyed as a young boy, and I read a few […]

Curandero (2005)

Curandero (2005)
Curandero – a traditional Native American healer or shaman in Latin America, who is dedicated to curing physical or spiritual illnesses. So near and yet so far. Those were my feelings towards Eduardo Rodriguez’s feature length debut (co-written by one Robert Rodriguez) , a Mexican horror/action...

When the fifth instalment of a struggling film franchise was about to go into production in 2010, there was skepticism as to whether it can keep the series alive, not to mention improve its efforts with film fans and the demanding box office. However, a bigger budget and the introduction of The Rock...
