The Expendables 3

It’s a holiday weekend and I just got back from watching The Expendables 3. OK. You don’t go to a film like this expecting an Oscar winning script, but come on! During the end credits, when it said “Story by Sylvester Stallone”, I thought of a scene from Boogie Nights where they discus the plot […]

Lucy

I’ve had a day off today, so as well as swimming, starting to clear out my junk room and going to the pub to say “see ya” to a colleague who is going on maternity leave, I went to see Lucy. Let me start by saying this is pretty much a rip-off of Akira. Not in a […]

Dawn of the Planet of the Apes

Today’s film was Dawn of the Planet of the Apes. I really enjoyed the first film and this is a continuation of that story, set 10 years later. The pacing on this film was pretty similar to the last one. If you are one of the people that found that too slow, you will have a […]

Guardians of the Galaxy

I’ve just got back from seeing Guardians of the Galaxy. Take note Sci-Fi movie makers! This is your competition! This is what you need to aim to outdo! It’s very cool. It looks great. You quickly start to give a crap about the characters. It doesn’t take itself too seriously. Favourite Character: Groot. I challenge anyone […]

Edge of Tomorrow

I went to see Edge of Tomorrow today. You will see reviews that say it’s a Sci Fi version of Groundhog Day, and that is kind-of true, but in a good day. It’s not overly endowed with plot, but it’s a pretty good Sci Fi flick. I think from now on Emily Blunt should be in every film! […]

Godzilla

OMG (Oh My Godzilla)! What a total pile of steaming, festering dog crap! It is incredible how they managed to spend $160 Million and produce something with less credibility than Sharknado, which only cost $250,000! I really don’t think it has any redeeming qualities. How, in a world that brought us Cloverfield and Monsters, can so much money […]

X-Men : Days of Future Past

This morning I went to see X-Men : Days of Future Past. It was very cool! Don’t get caught up in the whole time travel thing. It really isn’t a big deal in the whole scheme of things. My favourite characters were Blink and Quicksilver. Evan Peters plays Quicksilver, who has one of the coolest scenes in the […]

Divergent

I’ve just got back from watching Divergent. It is a really good film! Don’t believe any bullshit comparisons to that crappy Hunger Games. It is so much better than that rubbish! It’s probably a good idea not to read any summaries of the plot either, since it sounds kind-of stupid on paper. In the film it […]

The Amazing Spider-Man 2

I’ve just got back from watching The Amazing Spider-Man 2. Wow, that is one seriously long film! At 2 hours and 22 minutes, it’s a good 1 hour and 22 minutes too long… I guess there are two sides to this film: Action Scenes: During the action this films it is brilliant. Really over the […]

300 : Rise of an Empire

I went to see 300 : Rise of an Empire yesterday. My feelings on this were a bit of a mixed bag. I was not the biggest fan of the original 300 movie at the cinema, but I have subsequently warmed to it. This film adds a bit more story about the lead up to […]
