Anime: Darker than Black V01

While I still maintain my position as ‘not an Anime guy’, I am slowly starting to discover some really good stuff, which just so happens to be considered anime. DARKER THAN BLACK is one of those titles that walks the fine line for me, as far as being able to distinguish it as Anime (and […]

Hellboy II: The Golden Army

HELLBOY II: THE GOLDEN ARMY is nothing short of spectacular. Particularly so when you consider that the film was made for paltry eighty-five million USD. Of course, that statement wont really be appreciated until you see the movie yourself. Which — if you’re interested in making one of the best movie going seasons ever, even […]

Warner Bros: Finally Some Justice

Warner Bros President Jeff Robinov has just now realised that maybe, just maybe, actually knowing something about the IP that his company owns could help avoid killing off the potential gold-mines that are the DC Comics characters. It really isn’t hard to tell that Warner Bros has been pretty clueless when it comes to how […]

Star Wars: The Clone Wars

If there’s one positive thing that can be said about George Lucas, it’s that he has managed to change the face of both film-making and the way we watch (particularly, listen to) movies. He’s at the forefront of the digital revolution of movie production and is constantly pushing forth in new directions when it comes […]

xFiles: I Want to Believe

When the X-Files whimpered from our television screens back in 2001, I think that most people felt that the horse, werewolf, inexplicable creature and human with funky, stretchy abilities, had well and truly been flogged to death. In this nerd’s humble opinion, the right time to end the series would have been right after (or […]

Batman: The Dark Knight

Usually, when a movie gets as much press as The Dark Knight has, I have to think really hard about whether or not I really feel the need to add ‘yet another’ random voice to the din being created in the press, on blogs, and on websites everywhere. Basically, if I get sick of hearing […]

Movie: Welcome Back Doctor Jones

Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull, regardless of what you may have heard, is an Indiana Jones movie through and through – I’d even go as far as to defy all the internet gods and place it an equal second along side the third instalment, The Last Crusade. Yeah, that’s right! You […]

Sequel: Defiling Donnie Darko

Some ideas are so boneheaded that they could only possibly come from Hollywood. This idea is so exceptionally boneheaded that it’s entered the charts with a bullet and, while it’s virtually impossible to keep any accurate measure of the bonehead ideas happening on a minute by minute basis, has to be considered one of the […]

Marvel: Who the hell is Deadpool?

To some degree X-MEN ORIGINS: WOLVERINE has me more excited than all three previous X-Men movies managed; particularly because Logan, in my mind, is probably the most interesting of all the X-Men. But the film isn’t scheduled for release until May next year and while it has begun filming there is still a lot that […]

Movie: Knight Rider Doesn’t Suck… much

Nostalgia is a funny thing. In my mind shows like SIX MILLION DOLLAR MAN, THE A-TEAM, MAGNUM PI and, of course, KNIGHT RIDER, stand as the pinnacles of television awesomeness. Yeah, they don’t hold up very well now (although Magnum remains infinitely watch-able) but the reason they are remembered so fondly, by so many, is […]
