Rough Night

A Bachelorette weekend goes horribly wrong when a stripper is accidentally killed and the ladies struggle with how they should deal with the problem in Lucia Aniello’s Rough Night. The premise of Rough Night couldn’t be simpler and it conjures up comparisons to The Hangover almost immediately in that it’s a group of friends running…

Ghost in the Shell

The popular and iconic anime receives a Hollywood adaptation in Rupert Sanders’ Ghost in the Shell. I’ll start by saying that I’ve had no exposure to Ghost in the Shell in any form before this movie so I’ll be completely unable to make any comparisons to the anime. I am aware of the impact it…

Sing

A theatre owning Koala comes up with the idea to host a singing competition to bring interest back to his failing business in Christophe Lourdelet and Garth Jennings’ Sing. It’s American Idol or X-Factor -depending where you happen to live- with animals. Now that this is out of the way I can talk about how…

Kneel Before Pod – Captain America: Civil War

It’s time for another Kneel Before Pod. On this episode myself (Craig), Aaron and Chris -who appears for the first time- got together over the internet to talk about the latest Marvel movie Captain America: Civil War. Through the discussion we talk about our reactions to the conflict as well as new characters like Black…

Captain America: Civil War

It’s Avenger vs. Avenger in Captain America: Civil War when Steve Rogers aka Captain America (Chris Evans) and Tony Stark aka Iron Man (Robert Downey Jr.) disagree with legal measures that various governments around the world want to place on the Avengers because they fear how dangerous a team of superhumans can be. Loosely based…

The Jungle Book

Jon Favreau’s The Jungle Book is the latest of Disney’s live action updates to their classic animated movies after Kenneth Branagh’s Cinderella. The story is that a young boy named Mowgli (Neel Sethi) is forced to leave the family of wolves that raised him when his life is threatened by a merciless tiger named Shere…

Avengers: Age of Ultron

So, it’s finally here. Joss Whedon’s eagerly anticipated follow up to the hugely successful The Avengers -or Avengers Assemble if you live in certain places- finally lands on cinema screens in the form of Avengers: Age of Ultron. This film has big shoes to fill given the success of the first one and the innate…

Marvel Ranking

With the upcoming release of Marvel’s Avengers: Age of Ultron I figured I’d throw my hat in the ring and attempt my own Marvel Ranking. Below you’ll find my list of the Marvel movies in order of quality from worst to best. It’s something that a lot of websites do so I thought it’d be…

On the Silver Screen – Lucy

Scarlett Johansson stars as the titular character in Lucy; the story of a student accidentally exposed to a wonder-drug that enables her to access the full potential of the human brain. Luc Besson writes and directs this sci-fi action/thriller. The story wastes no time in getting started as Lucy (Johansson) is tricked into delivering a…

Captain America: The Winter Soldier

It’s only been a few hours since I got home from the midnight screening of Captain America: The Winter Soldier so I thought I would review it while it’s very fresh in my mind. I’ll avoid spoiling the main plot points and twists but the odd mini spoiler may creep in – consider yourself duly…
