Are Hollywood Blockbusters in Crisis? I give my opinion on 5 News Talk Live with @nickduncalf #film #filmcritic

20 Jul

Incase you missed it yesterday, I was on 5 News Talk Live with the brilliant Nick Duncalf talking about whether or not the film industry (that has an unprecedented 20 films over the $100 million mark out this summer, 6 more than last year) are headed for the ‘dud’ zone.

What do you think, are we headed for a disaster movie of our own? Is there too much choice out there? What have been your highs and lows of the Summer movie collection?

Let me know in the comments box below….

Enjoy!

Think your family is dysfunctional – wait till you meet The Millers! #film #filmtrailer

23 May

So I managed to catch this trailer yesterday and really REALLY laughed – so fingers crossed the full film is just as funny! So I wanted to share with you all the redband trailer – anyone not wanting to see Jennifer Aniston playing a stripper – look away now!

Tut tut! I knew you’d all be watching – well its not just about her stripping! Here’s the lowdown on what you can expect from the movie!

We’re the Millers 

David is a small-time pot dealer whose clientele includes chefs and soccer moms, but no kids—after all, he has his scruples.  So what could go wrong?  Plenty.  Having been jumped by a trio of gutter punks who steal his stash and his cash, they leave him in major debt to a drug lord. In order to wipe the slate clean, David must now become a big-time drug smuggler by bringing Brad’s latest shipment in from Mexico.  Twisting the arms of his neighbours including a cynical stripper, a wannabe customer and a tatted-and-pierced streetwise teen, he devises a fool proof plan.  One fake wife, two pretend kids and a huge, shiny campervan later, the “Millers” are on a roadtrip that is sure to end with a bang.

The film is out on the 23rd August!

Enjoy!

Ultramarines: A #Warhammer 40,000 Movie comes to DVD/Blu in June @WARherald

11 Apr

Screen shot 2013-04-10 at 18.26.29

For anyone who doesn’t know what Warhammer is, we can tell you…its one of the most popular and successful wargame franchises of all time! Yeah! Pretty impressive!

And now it comes re-imagined and brought to life as a dazzling, blood-soaked CG animated movie. Featuring the vocal talents of Terence Stamp, John Hurt and Sean Pertwee, its called Ultramarines: A Warhammer 40,000 Movie.

So what happens in this film?

It is the 41st Millennium, and the only force that stands between humanity and alien hordes are the Space Marines. Genetically enhanced, clad in power armour and knowing no fear, they are the angels of death. And the greatest of them are the Ultramarines. But when a select squad of scarred veterans and raw recruits responds to a distant planet’s distress beacon, they discover that a horrific evil has been unleashed. Amidst a living nightmare of chaos, carnage, and daemonic fury, these steel battle-brothers must now survive the ultimate enemy: themselves.

Sounds pretty cool no? 

It’s loud, it’s bloody, it has unfeasibly well-armoured Space Marines firing huge guns at anything that moves and features one of the most impressively fearsome villains we’ve seen in ages. Pure boy’s own, sci-fi escapism at its best.

It explodes onto DVD and Blu-ray on 17th June – so Warhammer fans and those curious about Warhammer, make sure you pick up a copy!

New Dead Man Down trailer drops #film #movie #filmnews

11 Apr

Here you go guys and gals – the awesome new trailer for Dead Man Down – it looks super cool!

What’s it all about?

When the body of a gang member is discovered in the freezer of crime boss Alphonse’s (Terrence Howard) mansion, a clear message has been sent…or has it?

As the gang reacts, members Darcy (Dominic Cooper) and Victor (Colin Farrell) take it upon themselves to dig further into who is after Alphonse. As a further complication to the gang neighbour Beatrice (Noomi Rapace) discovers Victor has a dark secret and contracts him into a scheme to seek out her own vengeance, with the violence escalating, Alphonse begins suspect that revenge is closer than he thought.

This is the American Theatrical debut of director Niels Arden Oplev (The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo).

Dead Man Down explodes into cinemas on 3rd May

If you’re a fan of European films then this one might just be for you…

Eureka Entertainment announced today that they have acquired the rights to Come As You Are (Hasta La Vista), Geoffrey Enthoven’s film about love, unconditional friendship and lust, based on the experiences of Asta Philpot – an ardent campaigner for disabled people.

Here’s a little bit about what you can expect from the film:

Three guys in their twenties love wine and women but they are still virgins. Under the guise of a wine tour they embark on a journey to Spain hoping to have their first sexual experience. Nothing will stop them. Not even their handicaps: one is blind, one is confined to a wheelchair and one is completely paralysed.

If you like films like The Intouchables, Rust and Bone and The Driving Bell and the Butterfly, this one might just be for you…Its already won Audience Awards at the Karlovy Vary International Film Festival in 2012, the European Film Awards 2012 and the Montreal World Film Festival 2012 as well as the Grand Prix des Amerique and a special jury mention at the Montreal World Film Festival 2012.

Come As You Are (Hasta La Vista) will be released theatrically in key cities around the UK and Eire on 7 June 2013
