Inception [ 2010 ] [ Hits:9487 ]
Review: in-cep-tion [in-sep-shuh n] noun - beginning; start; commencement.When Christopher Nolan releases a movie the world stops and takes notice... The director started making films when he was just seven-years-old and 33 years down the line he's still doing what he loves with only several feature length films to date. A short filmography by Hollywood standards, but when you consider Stanley Kubrick only made 16 films in 5 decades it puts Nolan's career in perspective. Just like Kubrick, Nolan's films...

The Dark Knight Rises [ Hits:4097 ]
Review: Christopher Nolan is a perfectionist, a conductor who insists that every instrument at his disposal is finely calibrated and double-checked. This means his films are always beautiful and reinforced by strong writing, powerful music and breathtaking visuals. His clinical precision could be accused of siphoning the warmth, imperfection and joy out of film, but he does tend to work on the colder, darker more serious side of the spectrum. In The Dark Knight Rises, Batman is still despised by Goth...

Mad Max: Fury Road [ Hits:4737 ]
Review: Mad Max: Fury Road is a piston-pumping action extravaganza from George Miller, who has reinvigorated the Mad Max franchise. To find some humourous context, the director's previous films include Babe: Pig in the City, Happy Feet and Happy Feet Two. Mad Max: Fury Road is the antithesis... burning with rage and fuming with eye-popping visuals from smoldering car wrecks to lonely desert vistas. This is an epic film that packs a punch... grabbing you from the get-go and sinking its metal teeth into ...

Kick Ass [ 2010 ] [ Hits:5007 ]
Review: The Kick-Ass comic book to film adaptation was inevitable. Come on, if Catwoman gets one, surely everyone's entitled to slap on some spandex and snarl? While you daydream about Halle Berry in a cat suit, you should know that her follow-up to that Oscar-whining "performance" in Monster's Balls is the equivalent of kitty litter and has nothing on Michelle Pfeiffer in Batman Returns.Plain, simple and cheesy, Kick-Ass kicks ass. It's an instant comic book cult hit, a special blend of Watchmen, The P...

Fast and Furious 5: Rio Heist [ Hits:4131 ]
Review: On your marks... get set... GO! Just like the Need for Speed video game brand, The Fast and the Furious has built its own empire out of man's desire to win, conquer and defy death. Fast and Furious 5: Rio Heist is Fast and Furious in fifth gear and they've made a few modifications... powering the same dopamine-infused head rush that generally comes after the chequered flag or "The Brazilian Job" in this case.In the fifth installment of The Fast and the Furious, Dominic Torretto (Diesel) and his ...

Captain America: The First Avenger [3D] [ Hits:5043 ]
Review: If you had to choose an iconic Marvel superhero that best resembles the characteristics of DC Comics' Superman, Captain America should definitely be on the shortlist. With director Joe Johnston’s (Hidalgo, Jurassic Park 3, Jumanji) admirable take on the ultimate freedom fighters' origins, the excitement for the inevitable Avengers movie has reached fever pitch. But how does Captain America's story compare to other Marvel heavyweights like Ironman, Thor and Spiderman?The first thing you come ...

Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol [ Hits:5380 ]
Review: As an instantaneous fan of almost everything that Tom Cruise touches (except the horrible ‘Knight and Day’), it didn’t take much effort to get me terribly excited for the release of the latest Mission Impossible film. What I was expecting was thrilling action sequences, dazzling set pieces and a few cheesy action one-liners – I got all of this, with a little touch of ‘awesome’ added that sweetens this fantastic popcorn spectacle even further! Of course, Tom Cruise is back in full ...

The Avengers [ Hits:4439 ]
Review: The most anticipated superhero movie of the year is here! Marvel's The Avengers has received plenty of hype ahead of its release and the bottom line is that it won't disappoint... much. This superheroes-on-steroids spectacle manages to do the near-impossible, containing several of the world's biggest superheroes and Hollywood egos in one literal blockbuster.Iron Man (Robert Downey Jr.), Thor (Chris Hemsworth), Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson), The Hulk (Mark Ruffalo), Captain America (Chris Evan...

Skyfall [ Hits:3784 ]
Review: Skyfall is the third James Bond film starring Daniel Craig, an actor who has successfully managed to keep himself detached from his Bond status in Hollywood. This can be attributed to his mission, which has seen him play 007 in every anti-Bond formula film since Casino Royale. The 007 franchise needed a shake-up, and intentions were revealed when Daniel Craig was cast as the new James Bond in Casino Royale, an intense blonde rogue, who replaced Pierce Brosnan's suave Gillette schmarminess with ...

Star Trek Into Darkness [ Hits:2023 ]
Review: Star Trek Into Darkness lives up to the hype. J.J. Abrams, in many ways a Steven Spielberg 2.0, has managed to do the near-impossible by securing pivotal roles in two of the biggest franchises in Star Trek and now Star Wars, with Star Wars VII in the pipeline. The director and producer is a forerunner for the next Hollywood juggernaut with a collection of noteworthy blockbusters in Mission Impossible III, Super 8 and Star Trek with many more to come. Star Trek reinvented the series sporting a b...
