Captain America: The Winter Soldier Review

review featured

When Captain America: The First Avenger came out, we knew that it was a movie to set up The Avengers. And then The Avengers came out and I felt that the depiction of Captain America wasn’t strong enough. Not because of Chris Evans, heck I think he’s perfect for the role. But more the way his part in the universe ... Read More »

Divergent Review

divergent featured

I’m a huge fan of films that are set in the distant post war future. In fact sometimes I do think that because of how fragile society can be, that perhaps we may see such a future. Well this movie or book is very similar to The Hunger Games, which I am a huge fan of so there will be ... Read More »

300: Rise of an Empire Review

300-featured

It has taken 7 years for this sequel to materialize. Many still talk about those fight scenes and slow motion shots and with the announcement of this sequel, you can understand how lots of guys will be flocking to the cinema to get a taste of this gritty battle on screen. Without Gerard Butler though, some might wonder how different ... Read More »

Non-Stop Review

Taken on a plane? Well sort off. Non-Stop does explore a very interesting post 911 concept which shows the reality of today – that 911 hasn’t been forgotten yet. Let’s find out if Non-Stop lives up to “new” action star Liam Neeson’s previous work. The Plot Global action star Liam Neeson stars in NON-STOP, a suspense thriller played out at ... Read More »

Anchorman 2 Review

It’s been 10 years since Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy and now finally we have Anchorman 2: The legend continues. Where does this film pick up from? and can it possibly be as funny as the first? Well I for one feel that Will Ferrell has been getting rather irritating in terms of his brand of comedy but one ...

RoboCop Review

Joel Kinnaman

I’m a huge fan of the 1987 classic and when I heard that they were going to a reboot, I was very excited. However when movie stills started to surface online and even images of the new black suit, I really got skeptical. I was not looking forward to it much until the first trailer of the movie hit. This ... Read More »

In this day and age we spend so much time on our computers or smart phones and we’ve seen in movies how perhaps one day our computers can talk back to us.

The Hobbit: The Desolation Of Smaug Review

hobbit2

I had a grand plan a year ago….I’d wait till a week before The Desolation of Smaug is released before watching An Unexpected Journey. Now I’m gonna have to add that to my top 5 regrets for 2013 because I just want more. Naturally in “Lord of the Rings” tradition, there is a bit of a cliffhanger at the end, ... Read More »

Thor: The Dark World Review

Thor The Dark World Thor and Odin

Everyone’s favorite hammer throwing Asgardian superhero returns for a second outing in his own movie after teaming up with the likes of Captain America and Iron Man to battle aliens in New York.

About Time Review

I’m actually a sucker for love stories so when I first saw the trailer for About Time, I immediately knew I had to watch it. It’s from Richard Curtis who wrote Love Actually, Four Weddings and a Funeral and Notting Hill so for sure I was gonna watch it. The Plot At the age of 21, Tim Lake (Domhnall Gleeson) ... Read More »
