Double Review: Troll

So, with Dreamworks’ Trolls coming out this week, and in the spirit of October, I figured I would watch these famous films also called Troll. I mean… Trolls is a sequel to these right? Like Aliens is to Alien? Right? Right? Nah, I am just trolling. Troll (1986) The infamous eighties fantasy film, perhaps benefited…

Review: Kubo and the Two Strings

Ahhh. That nice feeling of watching something original. Kubo is a young son of a warrior who is maimed as a baby by The Moon King and is raised by his mother as a storyteller. Now older he lives in isolation, with his injured mother, hiding from the Moon King’s servants who wish to take…

Review: Warcraft – The Beginning (2D)

Duncan Jones directing this fantastic epic isn’t the only thing that’s totally baffling and confusing with this project! The realm of Azeroth is at peace with its native races working together, but when a barbaric race known as Orcs build a portal between their worlds and invade, alliances must be forged and sides must be…

Tribute Review: A Nightmare on Elm Street (1984)

This was originally intended as a Remake Rumble review (alongside the 2010 remake I have yet to see) but after watching it again I have decided this is far more fitting as a Tribute Review for the late brilliant Wes Craven, who died in August this year (2015) who brought about, almost single-handedly, the teen…

Banter: The Hobbit and the Battle for Tradition

So The Hobbit trilogy has ended, Peter Jackson has finally ended his Middle-Earth adventure, but unlike the first Lord of the Rings trilogy this one has ended… badly. I loved the Lord of the Rings trilogy. A series of monstrous films made from acclaimed “unfilmable” tomes from JRR Tolkien, directed by a man who had…

Review: Frozen

There’s a lot to be said about Disney’s latest offering, some people saying it is the beginning of a new golden age for the studios, others saying its awful. But everyone agrees, the trailers are not to be trusted! Elsa, a princess of a far away kingdom, has the power to control and create snow…

Duo Review: Thor & Thor – The Dark World

A fantasy adventure film with plenty of energy and excitement, and keeping with its subtitle it has some surprisingly dark undertones and visuals! Lightning strikes twice today. While Thor does battle across the Nine Realms to restore order, scientist Jane Foster discovers an anomaly on Earth that acts as a doorway to a long forgotten…

Review: The Wizard of Oz

Having seen Oz the Great and Powerful I was inspired to go back and re-watch the two other films based off L. Frank Baum’s books, the famous 1939 MGM classic and the underrated Disney sequel from the 1980s! The Wizard of Oz (1939) An eternally timeless classic, forever referenced and loved. Personally, I have some…

Trilogy Review: The Hobbit

The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey (HFR 3D) (2012) The first entry of the Lord of the Rings’ prequel trilogy based off Tolkien’s children’s book proves to be greatly¬†embellished (for better and sometimes worse) but provides excellent spectacle and detailed fantasy adventure. Oh lord, this will be a big review. First, some history. The Hobbit was…

Review: Brave

Brave is probably one of the simpler outings from Pixar, but it is very easy on the eyes and strikes a nice balance of fun and maturity. Merida is a Scottish princess whose wild, playful, adventurous nature is completely smothered with her mother’s idea of what a princess should be. When their strife gets the…
