Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince [ 2009 ] [ Hits:12414 ]
Review: Harry Potter and The Half-Blood Prince is the best Harry Potter adaptation yet (despite sitting next to someone with a super-size popcorn and slurpy and no sense of volume control!). The franchise has slowly evolved from an adorable, theme park-friendly fantasy adventure for kids into a swirling, dark mass of might and magic for older teens and adults. The series has become darker and darker as its audience has grown older in a similar pattern to J.K.Rowling’s Harry Potter novels. Now The Half...

Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2 [ Hits:8175 ]
Review: It all ends in Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2. The boy wizard has grown up to grab hold of his wand, or any number of oddly shaped wands, and wreak havoc upon Lord Voldemort. For some... it's a moment for melancholy and sweet relief - the long wait is finally over, the books have been dog-eared and the Harry Potter shrine has been swept clean with a genuine Nimbus 2000 in preparation for the homecoming. For others, it's a joyous occasion... as an irritating little prick with glasses...

Wrath of the Titans [ Hits:6501 ]
Review: Clash of the Titans was disappointing. The action-adventure relied too heavily on visual effects, offering a tired video game script, wooden performances and substandard post-production 3D in the face of much anticipation. Yet as tarnished as it was, the blockbuster made enough money at the box office to warrant a sequel. Greek mythology is getting the Hollywood treatment with competition from another Greek hero franchise in Immortals, making it only a matter of time before Wrath of the Titans w...

Scott Pilgrim vs The World [ 2010 ] [ Hits:5978 ]
Review: Scott Pilgrim vs The World is brought to us by the guy that gave us Shaun of the Dead and Hot Fuzz. His name is Edgar Wright, whose dark British comedy films have become cult hits with the help of partner-in-crime, Simon Pegg. However, Scott Pilgrim vs The World is a departure from his usual brilliant garb. It's a non-British production and Wright ensured all of his ensemble weren't British, although one still managed to slip through. Scott Pilgrim vs The World may be a complete reversal in sett...

Alice in Wonderland [ 2010 ] [ Hits:5633 ]
Review: Lewis Carroll wrote what some conspiracy theorists believe was a tale about the effects of hallucinogenic drugs. Perhaps the whole who ha started with Go Ask Alice about a teenage girl’s spiral into drugs in the ’60s, coupled with a song called White Rabbit. Whatever… Disney adapted it and they do Alice in Wonderland plays in churches, must be okay.Tim Burton’s Alice in Wonderland seems more concerned with Alice’s chastity and transition into womanhood at the age of 19, as she escapes ...

Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 1 [ 2010 ] [ Hits:5528 ]
Review: It's old news, but "the magical kid with glasses" has become an international phenomenon. Remember when HP used to be a sauce and Indiana Jones was the only character worthy of a "character name and adventure" movie title. Glasses, reading and obscure pockmarks used to be dorky until Potter added a little pizazz to the art of being a nerd. Add a little magic and it seems you can transform any half-wit into a hero. Perhaps that's the charm of Harry Potter, he's a ordinary kid in extraordinary ci...

The Last Airbender [ 2010 ] [ Hits:5092 ]
Review: M. Night Shyamalan has systematically made the wrong decision at every turn in this film adaptation of the beloved Nickolodeon anime series, Avatar: The Last Airbender. From controversial casting decisions to a lackluster 3D post-production hack job, The Last Airbender is an incomprehensible, detached and languishing fantasy adventure, which is only buoyed by its style and special effects.The writer-director has progressively gone from brilliant to terrible starting with The Sixth Sense, Unbreak...

The Sorcerers Apprentice [ 2010 ] [ Hits:4901 ]
Review: Harry Potter and The Sorcerer’s Stone ripped off Walt Disney’s Fantasia… well, at least the title of that famous 10-minute symphonic clip of Mickey Mouse and his magic shrooms brooms. Seventy years later we have the live-action The Sorcerer’s Apprentice, which has taken revenge on Harry Potter with a knock-off adventure. It’s a vicious cycle and unfortunately, for hogwarts and potheads – Harry doesn’t make an appearance in this one – he doesn’t even feature in the title, poor b...

Immortals [3D] [ Hits:4766 ]
Review: Immortals is yet another action-fantasy epic in a spate of Ancient World mythology-based adventures. Frank Miller's 300 and the popularity of the God of War video game series has sparked off a fascination with tragic Greek heroes, resulting in visual-intensive 3D follow-ups in Clash of the Titans and now Immortals. Despite the comparisons and influence, Zack Snyder's virtual back lot technique remains in its own league with 300 head-and-shoulders above the latest blockbuster offerings. Immorta...

Snow White & The Huntsman [ Hits:4603 ]
Review: Snow White & The Huntsman is a beautiful magpie and revision of the Brothers Grimm fairy tale. While it may sound like a pretentious new wall paint, you won't feel like you're watching it dry. Recent Snow White adaptation Mirror Mirror is a pantomime compared with Snow White & The Huntsman, which spins an intensely dark, mature and captivating tale from an old thread. Charlize Theron's commanding performance as the evil queen Ravenna sets the stage for franchise figureheads Chris Hemsw...
