Abandon Ship!

Oh dear… Things don’t look so good for Peter Berg and his battle ships today as several reviews of his uneagerly awaited board-game-turned-Hollywood-flopbuster Battleship hit the web. Oh look! There I go ripping away and I haven’t even seen the movie! In the lead up to Battleship’s release, it’s fair to say that no one, … Continue reading

21 Jump Street – Review

On paper, this movie doesn’t look like it should work on any level. It’s bizarre blend of buddy-cop comedy and high school misfortune comprises the majority of this story. Revived from an 80’s TV show that never quite made its way across the pond and gave a mainstream US audience Johnny Depp, this could easily … Continue reading

Cleanskin – Review

Cleanskin, in the UK, refers to an individual threat to national security that does not fit the expected profile of the actions they undertake. The film predominantly follows Ewan (Sean Bean), a British secret service agent and former soldier tasked with eliminating a terrorist cell, and Ash (Abhin Galeya), a suicide bomber and terrorist planning … Continue reading

But here are a few character plot lines that we think would make the cut if this intriguing story was picked up. Larsson spent much of his professional life receiving death threats in … Continue reading

The Game is Afoot!

Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows Adrift from the biologically tactical kung-fu skills of Robert Downey Jr’s hyper-intelligent and comically self-destructing portrayal of Sherlock Holmes in Guy Ritchie’s 2009 feature, homage is paid to the very fictions that brought the original novels such fame and admiration. Dr. Watson’s love interest, Mary Morstan (upon meeting Holmes … Continue reading

Movie Review: Drive

The already critically acclaimed Drive (directed by Nicolas Winding Refn) centres around a movie stunt driver/part time heist wheel man played by Ryan Gosling. As an audience, we are never privy to the name of Gosling’s character, he is referred to only as ‘The Driver’. After becoming close with his neighbour Irene, played by Carey … Continue reading
