Insidious Chapter 2

Insidious – Chapter 2 As with all good horror films there comes the sequel and so it is the turn of Insidious to get the reboot treatment. Will Insidious 2 go the way of most sequels, offering the same as the first film but with bigger scares? In some ways it does, but the film […]

Despicable Me 2

The minions (and Gru) return in this mad, action-packed sequel. Becca investigates… Despicable Me 2 It’s hard to believe it’s been three years since Gru, the bald, evil villain (with the most unidentifiable accent), and his hilarious minions exploded onto our screens. I watched it a week ago, and was struck by how often I […]

Star Trek Into Darkness

Becca reviews the latest  Star Trek sequel… Star Trek into Darkness Okay, I admit it; even though I proudly call myself a geek, before J.J. Abrams rebooted Star Trek in 2009, I had never watched a single episode all the way through, or any of the spin-off films, for that matter. In my defence, though, I tried watching […]

Iron Man 3

Robert Downey Jr reprises his role as Iron Man (hopefully not for the last time!); Becca investiagtes…    Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr., Sherlock Holmes) is a broken man. The battle for New York may be long over (and the Avengers may have disbanded for now), but the memories are still very fresh. He is no […]

Jack the Giant Slayer

Becca goes up a familiar beanstalk for the latest fairy tale film…    Yet another fairy story receives a dust of movie magic, under the rather clever tagline, “If you think you know the story, you don’t know Jack”, even if it isn’t quite true. The story begins in the small town of Cloister, where in […]

Warm Bodies

Becca takes a look at a zombie film with a romantic twist…there’s something you don’t hear everyday! Warm Bodies I’m going to be honest with you, I tend to avoid zombie films if any are released at the cinema (well, except maybe Shaun of the Dead, but you don’t have to love horror to enjoy […]

Tropic Thunder

Becca gets hit by Tropic Thunder in this hilarious parody of everything film.   Take a glance at the poster for a second. Looks like a stereotypical, tedious run-of-the-mill action movie, right? True, you’d be almost completely correct, but only almost. The movie is in fact a movie WITHIN a movie. With me so far? […]

Beasts of the Southern Wild

Keith Hudson’s review on Beasts of the southern wild, New on Blu Ray/DVD   This pretty little film flew under the radar a bit in this country and it certainly wasn’t shown for long at the local multiplex (if at all, I can’t remember). Maybe the basis for the film didn’t fit too with British […]
