Logan

[imdb_movie_detail title=”Logan” detail=”plot”] Logan has always been my favourite X-men1 . Not that I’ve read a huge number of the comics, I haven’t, but in the way back far off days of my childhood I did watch the cartoons. And back then Logan would usually have been my head-fanfic character, followed by Storm, and then […]

Guardians of the Galaxy [based on comics]

The Amazing Spider-Man

The Amazing Spider-Man [based on comics]

Do I need to give a recap to this story? I mean, you know that it is a Spider-man film, and if I tell you it is an origin story well, I’m sure you’ll figure out that there will be something about his being bitten by a spider, getting super powers and then, after a […]

Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer [based on characters created]

This was pants. Complete pants. Not even bad enough to be enjoyed. Harsh? Maybe, but true. I wasn’t overly fond of the first film but it did the job of light entertainment. This one though was boring. An unforgivable flaw in an action-hero flick. Everything was ultra predictable, and nothing sparkled. Not even McMahon as […]

Batman Begins [based on comics]

Ignore all the previous films, this is new Batman origin film. And we get it all, from the fall down the well to the parents being gunned down in an alley. There is the training, the gadgets, and a batmobile like you’ve never seen before

When I first saw the trailers I didn’t really care much one way or the other. After The Machinist I wasn’t really all that looking forward to seeing Bale in anything for a while. I mean his acting in that was great, but he just made me uncomfortable.

Hellboy [based on comics]

Before I had heard about this film I had never heard of the comics, never really heard of the character of Hellboy at all, so I wasn’t “mad fer it.” But, after hearing a few positive reviews I decided I’d have to check it out at some stage. Then the trailers put me off, did anyone else get them in blocks of three? And I know that most everyone has praised del Toro’s Blade II, personally I preferred the first. Ah well, the film was on at the right time so I popped along.
