Ben and Daniel revisit Matthew Vaughn's Kingsman: The Secret Service!
The King’s Man takes viewers back to World War I to explore the early days of the independent intelligence agency known as The Kingsman.
Matthew Vaughn's finest film to date, Kingsman: The Secret Service looks great on Blu-ray and comes complete with a feature length making-of doc, something which is all too rare these days.
Kingsman: The Secret Service is an unexpected pleasure, delivering an entertaining blend of spy camp and British wit with a splash R-rated violence.
Misguidedly choosing incredibly lame jokes instead of maintaining Mark Millar's (sometimes) misguided edginess, Kick Ass 2 is a dreadful mess of hedged bets that somehow becomes more offensive to watch than if the film had been actively going for the shock value Millar's work often courts in the first place.
It was a big rush when the X-Men films finally hit the screen, all my most beloved characters expanding from the page to the screen. Then X-Men: The Last Stand came along and not only did the shit hit the fan, but it was set to high, and it splattered back in our faces many times over.

Set in the 1960's during the Cuban Missile Crisis, the film sports a very stellar cast led by Michael Fassbender and James McAvoy as Magneto and Professor Xavier respectively. The film also stars Kevin Bacon, January Jones, Rose Byrne and Oliver Platt.
We finally have our first look at the cast of Matthew Vaughn's upcoming X-Men prequel, X-Men: First Class, and the result are... well, kind of disappointing. Don't get us wrong, First Class has a pretty stellar cast led by Michael Fassbender and James McAvoy as Magneto and Professor Xavier respectively — Maybe we were just expecting more from this first picture?
No pressure with that title. I mean, yes I think this is a pretty good review, but the bar is set pretty high… Kick-Ass is director Matthew Vaughn’s film adaptation of the Mark Millar penned comic book of the same name. Set in New York, the story takes place in a world much like ours, […]
