Ben and Daniel revisit the first X-Men movie!
Netflix has released a new clip of Hemlock Grove's third and final season just in time to break your mind for Halloween.
Taken 3 couldn’t be any weaker or any more of an unfunny, time wasting joke if its final scene ended with a thunderous fart noise. It doesn't give a damn about filmmaking or giving a paying audience a decent action movie.
Hemlock Grove star Famke Janssen on ripping out hearts, singing karaoke, and the transformative second season of the Netflix horror series.
We talk to actors Dominic Purcell and Izaak Smith and director Damien Lee about their collaboration on the boxing film A Fighting Man, and about the film’s time shifting structure, how the characters very candidly relate to Purcell and Smith’s real life struggles, and why it took Lee almost twenty years to get around to making the film.
The Wolverine is quite daring in terms of how much it tries to not be exactly like every other comic book based blockbuster from the past decade, and despite some problems, it's still vastly better than the character's last big screen outing.
Our head film critic disliked Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters so much it drove him to have a crisis of faith/near mental breakdown from how tone deaf, unfunny, and laboured the whole affair was.
Looking to shake the early winter doldrums? Before you head out or order in a movie out on DVD this week, take a look at our eclectic line-up of reviews including the action of Taken 2 and Universal Soldier: Day of Reckoning, the martial arts mayhem of Swords of Dragons Gate, the drama of Won't Back Down, the visual splendour of Samsara, and the return of Woody Allen in To Rome with Love.
While the first Taken was a dirty revenge movie with a moral compass skewed beyond anything expected from Hollywood, Taken 2 is a more sanitized action feature that’s pleasures appeal primarily to those who love laughing themselves silly at the most ridiculous action fluff. Both are guilty pleasures, but this one is a little more difficult to defend. It’s not really a good movie in a traditional sense, yet it is far from boring and without trying has become the funniest action movie of the year.
