We Went To War
Back in 1970, British filmmaker Michael Grigsby was one of the first to document the experiences of American military personnel returning home from the Vietnam War in his film I Was A Soldier, made for …
reviewed Dredd. September 12, 2012
posted in Movie Hype
For many, the 1995 Sylvester Stallone movie was perhaps their first and only exposure to the character of Judge Dredd. Originally created by writer John Wagner and artist Carlos Ezquerra for British comic …
reviewed Prometheus. June 03, 2012
posted in Movie Hype
In the run up to its release, there has been much speculation about the exact connections between Prometheus and the Alien movies. The genesis of the project was in 2002, with Alien (1979) director Ridley …

The Adventures of Tintin: The Secret of the Unicor
Before his death, Tintin creator, Georges "Hergé" Remi, remarked that Steven Spielberg was, in his opinion, the only director who could ever do the character justice on the big screen. …
reviewed Rango. March 27, 2011
posted in Movie Hype
I think it's fair to say that CGI animated movies are really coming of age. As well as actual animation quality reaching new levels of brilliance, films such as How To Train Your Dragon and recent …
reviewed Paul (2011 movie). March 01, 2011
posted in Movie Hype
From the TV show Spaced to the movies Shaun of the Dead and Hot Fuzz, actors Simon Pegg and Nick Frost have rapidly proved themselves to be one of the great modern double acts of comedy, but, somewhat …

Tron Legacy
1982 was a great year for fantasy and sci-fi films. It saw the release of The Dark Crystal, Blade Runner, The Thing, Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan and, of course, the all conquering E.T. The Extra-Terrestrial. …

Kelly's Heroes
The history of the WWII movie as a genre is an interesting one. In the decades immediately following the conflict, Hollywood sought to mythologise the U.S. G.I. in the same way it had mythologised the …
reviewed Turf. August 24, 2010
Turf is a new 5 issue comic book series by debut writer Jonathan Ross and acclaimed artist Tommy Lee Edwards.      To those in the UK, Ross' name will be very familiar. He is …

Burn After Reading (2008)
I would call myself a fan of the Coen Brothers. A pretty big fan actually. Raising Arizona, The Big Lebowski, Fargo and O Brother, Where Art Thou? are among my favourite films of all time, and I'm …

Withnail & I
I think every movie fan has at least one film in their favourites list that they think only they truly love and appreciate. A film that, when mentioned in conversation, nobody else appears to have seen, …

There Will Be Blood
I confess to being rather late getting around to seeing this. It's one of those films that managed to pass me by upon its release, despite the fact that I was constantly hearing praise for it and …

Inception teaser poster
Inception is a rare beast of a movie; a big budget blockbuster that has brains as well as bangs for your buck. Kept under wraps right up to its release, it managed to retain a level of advance hype and …
reviewed 2000 AD. July 16, 2010
2000 AD
My first exposure to 2000 AD came when I was just 8 years old; it was 1984 and I received the 2000 AD Annual as a Christmas gift. I was already a child of the Star Wars generation, so the stories about …

Robin Hood (Single-Disc Unrated Director's Cut)
Origin stories seem to have been de rigeur in Hollywood in recent years. Putting a fresh spin on an old story is a great way to re-invigorate a franchise and breathe new life into well known characters. …
reviewed How to Train Your Dragon. April 06, 2010
posted in Movie Hype
Dragons have had a pretty checkered history on the silver screen. There have been some good efforts (Reign of Fire, Dragonslayer, Dragonheart) and some terrible misfires (Dungeons and Dragons, Eragon) …
reviewed Moon (2009 movie). March 28, 2010
Moon DVD
There was a time when Science Fiction movies were about big ideas, not big explosions. The 1960's and 70's produced movies like 2001: A Space Odyssey, Silent Running, Solaris, and Dark Star. Moon, the …
reviewed Avatar (2009 film). December 22, 2009
posted in Movie Hype
Let me get this out of the way first: Avatar is the best 3D movie ever made. Although it doesn't quite deliver on the lofty "revolution in film-making" claims made by director James Cameron, …
reviewed 9. November 01, 2009
posted in Movie Hype
With an award winning, Oscar nominated animator at its helm and the names of Tim Burton and Timur Bekmambetov attached, this movie was always going to have a lot of expectation surrounding it. Sadly, …
reviewed Up. October 22, 2009
It's been a long time coming for us Brits, but Up is finally here, and I'm glad to say it's been worth the wait.      With every new film they release, Pixar somehow manage to add …

The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford
Once in a while, a film comes along that truly astonishes on every level and you feel compelled to implore everyone you know to see it. For me, The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford …

Coraline (movie)
You have to feel for Henry Selick. He got somewhat of a raw deal with his directoral debut feature The Nightmare Before Christmas.  Most of the credit and accolades for that film undeservedly went …
reviewed Star Trek (2009). May 13, 2009
Star Trek Poster
The Star Trek franchise finally gets the shot in the arm it desperately needed, but that's not entirely a good thing. The moralising, intellectualising and stately grandeur that marked out Roddenberry's …

Tom Waits
I first became fully aware of Tom Waits in the early 90's. I knew of him before then - I'd seen him acting in a few movies - but it was a video of his I saw on MTV which really caught my attention. …
reviewed Gran Torino (movie). May 09, 2009
Gran Torino
Just as 'Unforgiven' made a fitting bookend to Eastwood's Western characters, 'Gran Torino' is a perfect bookend to his Dirty Harry persona. The establishing of Kowalski's (Eastwood) character is maybe …

The Orphanage
The Orphanage (El Orphanato) - the feature film debut from Spanish director J.A. Bayona - is, in essence, an old-fashioned haunted house movie, dripping with atmosphere and wonderfully unsettling.   The …
