Review: Chappie

Pre-2015, I imagine the question “you reckon renowned sci-fi filmmaker Neil Blomkamp (District 9) and legendary counter-culture Afrikans art rappers, Die Antword, will join forces to remake the beloved 80’s kids film, Short Circuit?” didn’t run through many people’s minds.

But like anĀ insane accident in a parallel Star Trek universe, it’s somehow happened, and Chappie swaggered onto our screens in 2015. So how does it measure up to the rest of Blomkamp’s work, and most importantly, who’d claim supremacy in the robo-deathbattle of the ages – Chappie or Johnny Five?

Review: Prisoners

It must really suck when you make a good solid movie only for something vaguely similar to get released to mass plaudits and glory and shit. It’s sort of what Amadeus was all about. Or Gobots. I mean, who the hell wanted a Gobot when you could have a Transformer?

Prisoners is just one of those great films that seemingly came and went. Let’s find out why.

It’s that time of year again: San Diego Comic Con is on and the trailers are coming. This year we’ve got a whole plethora of comic-book-turned-movie-adaptions. We’ve got a lot of sequels and a lot of reboots. But there are also some original hidden gems, like The Man From U.N.C.L.E...wait, no that’s a reboot. Okay, how about Goosebumps? Shit, that’s an adaption, right?!

Yeah, so there’s lots of upcoming movies about stuff we already know about. Yet, that doesn’t mean we can’t get excited. Oh no, there’s still plenty to get your knickers all nice and moist over.

So I give to you the best trailers of San Diego Comic Con 2015…

X-Men: Days of Future Past Review

X-Men Days of future Past minimal poster

May has been a pretty mental month for movie releases – Amazing Spiderman 2, Godzilla, Sabotage, Neighbours; it’s already shaping up to be a great summer for blockbusters and we’re not even in June yet. And now the fifth X-Men installment (or seventh for the purists) is finally here and undoubtedly about to carve its way to the top of the box office. With its adamantium claws fully extended, X-Men: Days of Future Past seeks to take the franchise to new heights and with the original X-Man director Bryan Singer (Usual Suspects, Valkyrie) back at the helm, it seems poised to be the best in the series to date.

So is it as good as the surprisingly solid X-Men: First Class? Can it steal the crown from X2?

X-Men: Days of Future Past Teaser from Amazing Spiderman 2 Released

X-men Days of Future Past Alternative Poster

So if you were like me and not interested in the pointless sequel to the pointless reboot of the Spiderman franchise, you probably didn’t go to see Amazing Spiderman 2. Or, maybe like my friend Tom, you foolishly left after the credits began to roll. Well we’re all retards it would seem, as Marvel managed to slot in a teaser for the up-coming Bryan Singer (Valkyrie, Usual Suspects) led X-Men Days of Future Past. Sneaky devils.
