Captain America, back in the world.

Captain America, back in the world.

Here’s another tickler for The Avengers’ DVD release, this time a clip of Steve Rogers, aka Captain America, back in the world (current), and moping about all that he has lost. It sure is tough being frozen and reanimated out of time. Just ask Buck Rogers in the 25th Century. Although, to be fair, he […]

Sometimes there’s a man, I won’t say a hero.

Thanks to Boingboing for highlighting the existence of this amusing documentary on the real Dude that the character of the same name was based on in the Coen Brothers’ movie, The Big Lebowski. It seems that The Big Lebowski has become more of a cult hit than I was aware, with its own cons and […]

Everything Or Nothing: The Untold Story of 007.

One for the BONDage and spy-fi fans among you. MGM will be releasing a new documentary in October this year called ‘Everything Or Nothing: The Untold Story of 007’, directed by Stevan Riley and produced by John Battsek/Simon Chinn, as part of the 50th anniversary of the James Bond movies happening that month. Can it […]

The Apparition (Frank’s Take).

The poltergeist puff piece The Apparition would not put a decent scare into Casper the Friendly Ghost. This generic boofest is set in the predictable confines of suburbia and ill-advisedly looks to capitalize on the Paranormal Activities phenomenon. Merely a derivative goose-bump ghost ride, The Apparition is the callow concoction of first-time feature film director-writer […]

The Avengers alternative beginning.

Those movie types over at Marvel know how to frontload the success of their DVDs/Bluerays for The Avengers, in this case, one of the extras is an alternative beginning for the film. I can see why they didn’t use this, though, as it kind of gives the game away before it’s even begun.

Crux (Frank’s Take).

Writer-director Bryan Boykins delivers a timely message about the fragile state of mankind and the sacrificial stakes facing an individual who has lost his way in the favor of the all-mighty dollar in the thought-provoking spiritual fantasy drama Crux. Penetrating, imaginative and insightful, Crux is a message movie about humanistic priorities and the importance of what wealth really is […]

The Expendables 2 (Frank’s take).

Stallone and his carnage crew are back for more firepower and flippancy in the hyperactive sequel The Expendables 2. These aging and rollicking renegades deal mainly in rocking the boat…not rocking chairs! The heart and soul behind The Expendables 2—much like its pulsating predecessor—is plain as the trigger on a semi-automatic shotgun: it is about […]

The Bourne Legacy (Frank’s take).

The rousing fourth instalment of the Bourne movie series looks forward to continuing the tenacious trend following the excitable exploits of one of cinema’s favourite amnesiac super spies. Also, the catchy film titles in this espionage franchise seemingly roll off the tongue: The Bourne Identity, The Bourne Ultimatum, The Bourne Supremacy and now The Bourne […]

Bryan Singer’s Battlestar Galactica movie.

In this video, Bryan Singer (of X-Men fame) chats to IGN about his plans for a big budget Battlestar Galactica movie, among other things. By the sounds of it, the film is going to be based on the original series, rather than the gritty reboot. Not sure what to think about that. Singer notes, “I […]

Total Recall (Frank’s take).

Len Wiseman’s (“Underworld”) numbing, noisy and nonsensical dazzling ditty Total Recall marches through the monotonous motions as surly sci-fi actioner but only manages to muster up inconsequential static. The excess of action-oriented sequences, CGI hedonism, exaggerated fight scenes, curvaceous cuties in a hormonal catfight, a robotic nemesis and a swaggering leading man caught in the […]
