Watson reviews Martin Scorsese’s Hugo

Probably the most interesting thing about 3D family film “Hugo” is that it is directed by Martin Scorsese, a filmmaker famed for his viciously violent and prodigiously potty-mouthed 18-rated flicks suitable only for mummy and daddy. Look down his filmography before the release of “Hugo” (ignoring 1993’s U-rated romance “The Age of Innocence,” which, to… Continue reading Watson reviews Martin Scorsese’s Hugo

Trailers of the Weak–May 2011

The Muppets It took a while for everyone to truly appreciate the Muppets for what they were. The ball's in your court, Segel. 50/50 This may be the most depressing thing Seth Rogen's done since The Green Hornet. But this might actually be good. Shark Night 3D From the people who brought you Hostel and… Continue reading Trailers of the Weak–May 2011

I Love Movies, but I Hate Yours: Saw VII

I think it's a reasonable statement to say that the Saw series has lost its way. What was once a fairly intelligent torture parade with a tantalizing villain has been spun into a simple-minded blood 'n guts affair with its liquidated brains leaking out from its repeatedly bludgeoned skull. It's become the thing that many… Continue reading I Love Movies, but I Hate Yours: Saw VII

Jackass 3D Review

Jackass has always been a guilty pleasure of mine. Viewing people hurting themselves over and over again may not seem like quality entertainment to some, but Jackass I have a special soft spot for. From the successful TV show - which sadly only aired for two years - to the feature-length movies - which were… Continue reading Jackass 3D Review

Resident Evil: Afterlife

When I wasn't listening to the endlessly isolated ticks and tocks from the hands of my watch during my viewing of Resident Evil: Afterlife, I was working out how long the film really would have been if it weren't for all the slow-motion. Given that each action set-piece is engorged in the bullet-time effect -… Continue reading Resident Evil: Afterlife

I Love Movies, But I Hate Yours: Piranha 3D

I don't think I have ever cringed or winced at a movie as much as I did while watching Piranha 3D. Almost every single frame is soaked in blood and most on-screen characters are covered head to toe in freshly bitten teeth marks. My shoulders stiffened and my eyeballs shrieked for help as they suffered… Continue reading I Love Movies, But I Hate Yours: Piranha 3D

I Love Movies, but I Hate Yours: Cats and Dogs: The Revenge of Kitty Galore

Bill Murray once compared the end of the world at the hands of an evil god to cats and dogs living together. "Mass hysteria," he said in 1984's comedy classic Ghostbusters. Turns out this silly comparison may be appropriate, as in Cats and Dogs: The Revenge of Kitty Galore, the two usually feuding furry animals… Continue reading I Love Movies, but I Hate Yours: Cats and Dogs: The Revenge of Kitty Galore

The Last Airbender

I want you to picture Stanley Kubrick. A brilliant director, considered by many to be a genius and one of the greatest filmmakers who has ever lived. You picturing him? Right, I now want you to picture Uwe Boll, a man who is heavily thought of as the epitome of bad film making, a man… Continue reading The Last Airbender
