Hope for Justice League

Hope for Justice League

jason momoa is the best This gives me so much hope for the upcoming Justice League movie. Hopefully this sort of off-screen shenanigans always bodes well for the finished product if there is natural chemist between the cast. I personally think that this lighter, humorous side needs to shine through the DC cinematic universe. This

Portal Movie Still In the Works?
The Wedding Ringer

The Wedding Ringer

If you’ve seen the trailer for The Wedding Ringer, and you probably have because it seems to be shown everywhere all the freaking time, you’ll probably agree this looks like just another comedy movie about some schmuck getting married and having to hire a guy to be his best man. What you actually get from this

The Interview

The Interview

The Interview has had it’s fair share of controversy surrounding the release of the movie. First The Interview was coming out in cinemas, then Sony pulled it completely and then it was coming out online but only for some countries, now it seems available for everyone via rental on various platforms.The controversy that surrounds The Interview

John Wick

John Wick

When I first saw the trailers for John Wick I was captivated with the sheer balls to the wall violence and style of this movie. But now that I’ve seen it, I realise there is so much more to John Wick than just action, though there is a shite load of awesome action to be had. I

Godzilla

Godzilla

Godzilla 2014 is a great nod to the old films whilst bringing the king of monster back to the silver screen in all his glory. Godzilla is a reboot of the iconic monster movie but the story was thinner than rice paper.

Captain America: The Winter Soldier

Captain America: The Winter Soldier

When I watched the original Captain America movie it was a while after its cinematic release. I had put off watching the film because of all the negative press it had received and I was a little gun-shy. After watching the film I was kicking myself for not having seen it sooner and wondered, are

Underworld: Awakening

Underworld: Awakening

These movies were once amazing! I absolutely love the Underworld series as a franchise but this is a far cry of what was once amazingly great movies. The most devastating fact about Underworld: Awakening is that it is actually a decent movie! The story,the actors and the CG effects even; are all of good to

Gravity

Gravity

I went to the movies the other week and just so happened to see the movie Gravity. I will give you a bit of a rundown of what happens and you can judge for yourself if you want to head to the cinemas and check it out.  “Life in space is impossible”, are the words

White House Down

White House Down

White House Down is a lot better than I thought it was going to be. The action is quite substantial and the comedy isn’t as on the nose as the trailers make out. Whilst some of the funnies get lost in the action there are others that really stick out and seem almost thrown in.

Now You See Me

Now You See Me

I went in to Now You See Me thinking it would be… well actually I went into this movie without any real idea or expectations, which is probably the mindset we should always go into a movie with, alas this is seldom the case. Whatever expectations I did have were certainly blown out of the

The Wolverine (2013)

The Wolverine (2013)

The latest installment of the Wolverine spin-off series is here. Who does not enjoy an ever healing mutant with unbreakable steel claws…  The critics have been laying into the movie a bit, but if you are a fan of X-men or Wolverine, into anything superhero or just like Hugh Jackman, then this is a great

Fast and Furious 6

Fast and Furious 6

Remember when these movies used to be about street racing?

I have been a big fan of these movies, as has my fiancée since the original. The original was a great film with a fairly solid plot, good twists and character tension. The same can’t exactly be said of this latest Fast and Furious 6. Don’t get me wrong, it is a good movie, but there are some parts where even I ( and I like to think I can suspend reality during any movie enough to enjoy it) was looking at my fiancée saying, “Wtf?!”. At other points she was yelling foul to the point where she almost wrote the rest of the movie off as, “… too ridiculous!”. Now the main plot of the movie had all the makings of a good story, but the execution left a bit to be desired. The characters have gone from street car racers to a world-renowned heist crew, who carries guns and destroy just about every city they land in. Thankfully there has been some progression to this though, so at least it hasn’t gone from the first movie to now but I still think the writers/directors/producers should tone down on the crazy destruction derby that it has become in the next one (yes it looks like there will be another one, and it seems to be set after Tokyo Drift).

Star Trek Into Darkness

Star Trek Into Darkness

Boldly going where some have been before.

The original remake was quite a revelation in terms of new life for the Star Trek franchise. Keeping enough of the old and branching out to the new in equal measure with a balance as fine as the tuning in warp nacelles. Star Trek Into Darkness was able to break new ground in the wake of the success of the first reboot movie. I say that it broke new ground for this version of the franchise but they didn’t break away as much as I would have hoped. Recycling the old favorites in terms of bad guys etc. is all well and good but the writers had a chance to do something completely different. Is this series of movies just going to be a step by step re-imagining of the old movies or are they going to branch out somewhat? Don’t get me wrong the way the story was told is great and the emotions run high throughout the entire movie, especially at the end with barely a dry eye in the cinema.

Iron Man 3

Iron Man 3

Different isn’t always better but this time it works.

After watching the first Iron Man I was left absolutely speechless, with a strange urge to build things and a serious need to change my pants. The original movie really kick started the whole comic-book-movie revival that we have seen over the past few years, even more so than spider man.

I was slightly disappointed with Iron Man 2, don’t get me wrong I still enjoy watching it but there seems to be a lack of…something. Story, character direction, too much action? I’ve never been able to put my finger on why I don’t fancy that movie as much as others. Well I had no such issues after leaving the cinema with the 3rd installment, the only odd feeling I had was a “What are they going to do now?”. So as not to spoil anything for those wish to remain pure, I will just say that he spends a lot of time out of the suit in Iron Man 3 and it is a refreshing insight into Tony as a character. Whilst Robert Downey Jr plays the character to a T, it isn’t hard to see why he / the studio may want to go in a different direction with the character. This movie seems to be based around growth.
