Movie 43 (2013)

Movie 43 (2013)
I’m not crediting everyone individually here, because it would just take too long, but Movie 43 puts together a decent list of names both behind and in front of the camera. It’s a comedy movie made up of sketches, connected by a framing device that, depending on which version you watch, is...

Venom to appear in Amazing Spiderman 2?

Venom to appear in Amazing Spiderman 2?
The Amazing Spiderman was a well received re-boot to the Spiderman franchise. It was so well regarded by the film community because of  its more accurate take on the hero, more ‘true’ to the comic books most would say. Andrew Garfield played the lead role as Peter Parker/Spiderman whilst...

Gangster Squad (2013)

Gangster Squad (2013)
Photoshopped Somebody up there at Warner Bros. must have realised that Gangster Squad, a cops-and-crooks story set in Los Angeles in the late Forties, is a terrible movie, despite its stellar cast. So they’ve released it in Hollywood’s dump-the-rubbish month of January, when people are more...

Gangster Squad (2013)

Gangster Squad (2013)

The Amazing Spider-Man (2012)

The Amazing Spider-Man (2012)
When I first watched The Amazing Spider-Man I hated it. It just didn’t feel right to me, I didn’t like the attempt to add darkness and intrigue to the character and I said as much. Re-watching it recently (hey, I still had to buy it on Bluray), I realised that it’s a solid, if flawed,...

The joy of flying In The Amazing Spider-Man, a reboot of the comic book superhero classic and the fourth American blockbuster movie on the theme, Andrew Garfield has replaced Tobey McGuire as Peter Parker.

The Help (2011)

The Help (2011)
Oh dear. Oh dear, oh dear, oh dear. The Help isn’t what you would call a BAD film – the script and direction from Tate Taylor is dependable and completely predictable while the performances from all of the cast members really elevate every scene – but in many ways I couldn’t help...
