The Strain Trilogy #3 I really enjoyed the first book in this series, The Strain worked really well as a competent vampire story. It was creepy and horrible and very readable. The second book, The Fall, I didn’t enjoy quite so...

Robin Hood

Robin Hood dir. by

Directed by Ridley Scott ; Screenplay by Brian Helgeland
You all know the legend of Robin Hood, he stole from the rich and gave to the poor, living in Sherwood Forest with his band of merry men, his main nemesis being the evil Sheriff of Nottingham. And there have been many version of Robin over the years. My personal favourite still remains the tv show from the 80s Robin of Sherwood. It managed to get the balance between myth and reality just about right, in my opinion, of course. But even Kevin Costner’s version was damn fine fun. This is not.

Clash of the Titans

Clash of the Titans by dir. by , , , ,

The film opens at sea, in a storm. A fisherman hauls in an ornate box and after prising it open finds a baby boy and his dead mother. He and his wife raise this child as their own, loving him just as much as their flesh and blood daughter, whom they bear some years later. We know this because Pete Postlethwaite tells us so. This boy, Perseus, does not know it, but he is a demi-god, the son of Zeus himself. And he is about to get caught up in a conflict between humanity and the Gods of Ancient Greece.

Daybreakers

IMDb ; Official Site ; MetaCritic This film is utterly meh-worthy. It isn’t entertaining enough to be enjoyable, but isn’t bad enough to merit a walk-out. You’ll most likely forget about it two minutes after you leave the cinema. It’s supposed...
