John Wick (2014) Mini Review

John Wick won’t be winning any awards anytime soon but it is a lot fun in 100 mins. Should be on DVD in most places so check it out. Kick ass action. Good visuals. And Keanu Reeves does a lot and says very little, just how I like him. Keep it up Keanu.

I’ll go into more detail below but give it a try, got trailers and images below. Check it all out and give me a like and a comment at the end.

Taken 3 (2015) Mini Review

First review of 2015!!! Tak3n haha that title. Ah January a time of year where good films do not tread. Taken 3 is awful. It’s really, really bad. Serious stinking mass of crap. These films have taken (ah!) a real dive since the first. Taken 1 great. Taken 2 alright but ludicrous. Taken 3 is lazy garbage, there is no excuse.

I’ll go into more detail below, got trailers and images below. Check it all out and give me a like and a comment at the end.

Tim’s Top Ten Films of 2014

This is my list of the Top Ten Films released in the year 2014. I have reviewed each one of them or a review is pending and consider them to be all worthy of their position. If you notice any films that you loved and that are not on the list then this could mean one of two things, either I disagree or I simply didn’t see it (there’s a lot of those). Enjoy the list and check them out if you haven’t seen them.

The Grand Budapest Hotel (2014) Mini Review

This was fun, I really like watching Wes Anderson films because they take you to another world. He does that with all his films. The Grand Budapest Hotel should be out on DVD and VOD at the moment, it’s a fantastically quirky story about the hotels devoted concierge and his young apprentice lobby boy. The film is really fun and the all-star cast is stellar especially Ralph Fiennes, well done that man.

I’ll go into more detail below but give it a try, got trailers and images below. Check it all out and give me a like and a comment at the end.

Chappie (Trailer #2) Review

FIRST TRAILER REVIEW OF 2015! I wasn’t really into the first trailer because it seemed to show pretty generic stuff for a first trailer and am a bit sore from Elysium (So disappointing) so I didn’t review it. Also no time. This I liked though, the idea of AI is fascinating and it’s always a good sci fi concept. The idea of replacing police with robots is giving me very vivid RoboCop flash backs. But I’ll wait and see. Enjoy the review and please tell me your initial reactions to this new trailer, more so if you disagree.

“I am consciousness. I am alive. I am Chappie”

The Guest (2014) Mini Review

Here comes my mini review, much easier doing these. The Guest is currently out on VOD, it’s a really good 80’s thriller film but was made this year, and I love it. Adam Wingard the director of this film is definitely on a roll. I am two for two on his films. You’re Next and now this little gem. I will be looking out for your future films.

I’ll go into more detail below but give it a try, got trailers and images below. Check it all out and give me a like and a comment at the end.

10 Most Anticipated Films of 2015

This is my list of the most anticipated films released in the year 2015, wow this year, crept up quick. I have a skewed view towards the genres of Sci-fi and Action, so don’t expect indie or drama, I will watch them but at the moment I just don’t care. If you notice any films that you want to see more than anything then this could mean one of two things, either I disagree or I simply forgot it was coming out. If so I would love to know if I am missing any. Also there will be a box office prediction for each film; you guys know how much I like predictions. Upcoming reviews are all 2014 film, first The Guest then The Interview, The Grand Budapest Hotel, Nightcrawler and The Babadook. Also still need to see The Hobbit Battle of The Five Armies and Hunger Games Mocking Jay Part 1.

2014 in review

Boy those last few months are shameful :(

The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2014 annual report for this blog.

Here’s an excerpt:

The Louvre Museum has 8.5 million visitors per year. This blog was viewed about 80,000 times in 2014. If it were an exhibit at the Louvre Museum, it would take about 3 days for that many people to see it.

The Sony Hack: From a Funny Leak to a Horrifying Precedent

I avoid politics on my film blog because it very rarely has a place being here. However recently it has become such an all-consuming part of the film news world I thought I should chime in. Then a few days ago Sony had pulled the release of ‘The Interview’ from worldwide screenings. Bringing both my film nerd side and my political nerd side crashing together to form this post. I will discuss what happened, theory on why and my views on it happening.

Interstellar (2014) Review

I really liked this film, probably my favourite science fiction film in years. The concept was dark but surprisingly humanist from a director like Nolan. The visuals are great, the split between practical effects and CGI are really well done, and IMAX is a must. Then we have the cast, who are great performers, have some excellent dialogue and emotional scenes, but I am not sure about the chemistry. I was worried about this film beforehand and even thought this might be Nolan’s first flop, boy am glad I was wrong.

I’ll go into much more detail below but for now bookmark this if you are waiting to see the film, leave any comments below, if you have seen the film then check out the spoiler sections and I will look forward to hearing everyone’s thoughts.
