Skyfall – Frank’s take (film review).

As the cinema world celebrates the 50th anniversary of the badass British superspy known internationally as Agent 007, craggily-faced Daniel Craig achieves a milestone of his own as the high-octane ‘Skyfall’ marks the third film in which he walks in the adventurous shoes of the dangerous and debonair James Bond. After Craig’s dapper topsy-turvy turns […]

World War Z super first trailer.

First we teased you with some World War Z movie tickler footage – now it’s time for the real thing, and never has Brad Pitt run away from so many plague-infected undead types in his life. This is the film that is based on Max Brooks’ rather excellent novel World War Z: An Oral History […]

Warm Bodies zombie movie trailer.

The zombie invasion continues uninterrupted in this new film, Warm Bodies (based on Isaac Marion’s horror book), about a zombie-human love affair that might just be the cure for the undead plague sweeping the world. Just watch out for the bonies, however – which even the undead loathe and fear. This looks rather amusing – […]

Hobbit up a tree.

There’s a hobbit up a tree… at least, there is if you’re looking at Peter Jackson’s four new posters for his next movie set in Middle Earth. As always, click on the pictures to embiggen.

World War Z first look.

The much troubled movie version of World War Z has just released their first footage to tickle your viewing taste buds. From what we can see here, it looks like the zombies are more in the hyper-fast super-predator mode of the Rage virus and I am Legend, rather than the slow shuffling corpses of The […]

Red Dawn bleeds blood red.

Here’s the new trailer for the Red Dawn reboot. I have said this before, but having China attacking the USA is a realistic premise. North Korea? Come on! They can’t even feed themselves without American aid. They’re going to invade? That ain’t scifi, that’s fantasy!

Air Middle-earth?

Air New Zealand has a tie-in to the new Hobbit film in the form of a faux safety video filled with Middle-earth types. Ah, the wags. You can tell the publicity is cranking up for the new Peter Jackson’s film’s Christmas release, can’t you?

John Dies at the End. Really!

And there’s a new trailer out for the exceptional slice of oddness that is the film John Dies at the End. This one is based on the novel of the same name by Jason Pargin and stars the ever reliable Paul Giamatti (who also pulled executive producer duty on the flick). It’s got demons entering […]

Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters – sweet, they aint!

The Red Band UK trailer for Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters is here in all its bloody glory. If you told me the title of this movie a year ago I would have thought you were taking the piss, but I guess they’ve made it, and here it comes. Kind of in the same vein […]

Cloud Atlas (film review) – Frank’s take.

In quoting the legendary Motown singing group The Temptations they insisted ‘…I’m doing fine on Cloud Nine…’ but it is too bad that the cinematic reactions may be mixed when wondering if moviegoers will be feeling the same vibes towards the sprawling yet inexplicably disjointed sci-fi spectacle ‘Cloud Atlas’. Woefully bloated, excessively jumbled and furiously […]
