The Croods trailer.

A new animated movie from DreamWorks… this one about a family of cavemen (and cavewomen/girls) who lose the cave where they have lived all their lives, and have to go off into a very strange world to make their way. Not sure if half these odd animals actually existed in prehistoric times (and I know […]

Resident Evil: Damnation (2012) (film review).

Directed by Makoto Kamiya, ‘Resident Evil: Damnation’ is an animated feature film. It’s a continuation of the long-running videogame based series which started life many years ago as a conventional movie. Now, after several transformations it has become a pinnacle of computer graphics presentation, an example of what can be done with the latest technology […]

Solomon Kane film review (Frank’s Take).

Writer-director Michael J. Bassett’s brooding and bloated fantasy adventure ‘Solomon Kane’ is rather ambitious in its fire-and-brimstone presentation. The bone-crushing and blood-splattering spectacle is indeed committed to its rousing showcase pertaining to a fearless warrior, wicked sorcerers, curvaceous harlots, revolving thrones, discarded bodies and relentlessly murky battles — all set in the background of Merry […]

The Hole film review (Frank’s Take).

The arrival of the family-friendly horror adventure ‘The Hole’ on the big screen in 2012 is rather puzzling considering that the movie was originally shot in 2008 (with a European release in 2009). Anyhow, fans of filmmaker Joe Dante (‘The Howling’, ‘Gremlins’, ‘Explorers’, ‘Small Soldiers’, ‘The ‘Burbs’) will get re-acquainted with his latest narrative that […]

Hotel Transylvania film review (Frank’s Take).

Checking out at ‘Hotel Transylvania’ is definitely a preferable prospect as opposed to checking in. This lackluster 3D animated feature may be chuckle-worthy for the kiddies particularly when its enticing makeup is a hybrid of pop cultural reminiscences that combines ‘Twilight’ with ‘Monsters, Inc.’ As for adults, ‘Hotel Transylvania’ is just another lame excursion for […]

Spider 3D trailer.

Spiders3DTrailer from Heather Wixson on Vimeo. It’s been a while since we’ve had a film where giant monsters smash up large cities like New York – although if you live in Japan, there was probably one of these on the cinema last week. In Spiders (3d, groan), you have the spectacle of giant mutant spiders […]

Looper film review (Frank’s Take).

Mind-bending time travel movies routinely have a robust and surrealistic edginess that caters to the absolute essence of science fiction fanatics. Still, that is not always enough to convey the concrete convictions of a sci-fi time travel tale that percolates beyond its visual mastery. Sometimes one needs the inclusion of a challenging plot, thought-provoking characterizations, […]

The Thompsons (2012) (movie review).

Watching a movie directed by the Butcher Brothers means you are just asking for trouble and there is plenty of that in ‘The Thompsons’, the follow-up from an earlier, if somewhat more amateurish offering called ‘The Hamiltons’. Actually, their real name isn’t Butcher at all, it’s the duo Mitchell Altieri and Phil Flores, also responsible […]

Zombie A-Hole (2012) (film review).

‘Zombie A-Hole’ is an ultra-low budget grindhouse B-movie by young American director Dustin Mills. It’s his first live-action film, following on from 2010’s ‘Puppet Monster Massacre’ and was made for the princely sum of $1000. Can a film this cheap possibly be worth watching? Despite serious initial reservations, not helped by the ridiculous name chosen […]
