Well here it is the first full trailer to the final film in the Riddick trilogy. I loved the first film, it had a unique feel to it and was so simple it’s hard not enjoy the ride. Then the follow up Chronicles of Riddick which was so far in the opposite direction even I had trouble keeping track of the Sci-Fi/Fantasy elements at play. Now watching this trailer I obviously feel it taking more influence from the first film, stranded on a desert planet, bounty hunters, the nasty monsters come out at night, R RATING! Love it all and I think it will be at the very least fun. Also got some interesting casting going on which I will talk about later, but on that note where the hell Karl Urban? Honestly put him in the trailer! The action looks good, the monsters look scary and Riddick’s eyes are glowing so let’s get this review started! Comment and like at the end please.

Edgar Wright, Simon Pegg and Nick Frost return for the final chapter in their Cornetto trilogy, Shaun of the Dead, Hot Fuzz and now The World’s End. I heard about this film last year and I didn’t really know what it was about but knew who was involved and was really excited. Little did I know that the film was about a pub crawl that ends with an alien invasion, dear god a comedy alien invasion film is so my type of film! The trailer looks great and I have laughed quite a bit at the various jokes and I am sure it will be great, even the invasion looks great, and a skit of Invasion of the body snatchers but in Edgar Wright style love it. I can’t wait and neither should you, hope you enjoy the review and leave your extremely positive comments at the end.

It wasn’t bad as an average horror film but I expected better and was ultimately disappointed by this gory but sadly unappealing remake. Now don’t start getting at me with being a downer. I am an optimist when it comes to films, and I judge films equally and so this review isn’t average because I didn’t like the original being remade. Here is my optimistic Trailer Review, and I loved the Original Trilogy which I have also Reviewed. The reason this film is average is because it’s just like everything else in horror, gore increases, story and character become meaningless. Oh and when a film claims to be the scariest I will ever see, I don’t think it is wrong to expect at least to be scared once.

Now I don’t mind remakes, never really bothered me as long as they are done well, a good films a good. However I did get worried about this one getting remade because it is a favourite of mine, but after watching the teaser trailer it looked crazy good. It had blood and destruction, looked great. This trailer however has a few things I am not sure about. Starting with the bad, Chloë Grace Moretz still looks fantastic. Why is that bad Tim? Well she is supposed to be mercilessly bullied into a murderous rage, but I am just not seeing the same realism as in the first film. More later on. The good, Julianne Moore and Chloë seem to be pulling off that crazy ass mother daughter relationship. That’s a difficult couple of scenes to deal with but they seem to be doing the original film justice. As for the rest of the trailer please read on for my favourite scenes.

Second feature of the 5 bests is the best alien invasion films. Science fiction is my genre, alien films are a keen interest and alien invasion films are just damn cool! It’s a good mixture of these types of films. I have featured action heavy films to dramatic paranoia and all of which I would recommend to my readers. If anyone has any film they are adamant that I have over looked, please point that film out to me because I am not an expert even though I have watched a lot of these films. Please enjoy the list and comment at the end.

I love this film way too much! One of my all-time favourite films and easily one of the most quoted action films around. The main staple of action films from the 80’s and 90’s came from Arnold Schwarzenegger and whilst there are so many gold pieces of action he was a part of I had to pick Predator as a favourite because it was such a perfect blend of Science Fiction and Action. The predator itself was a great piece of visual work and takes the test of time brilliantly, props to the visual team behind that well done. An alien spacecraft enters the Earth’s atmosphere, sometime later; Dutch arrives in Guatemala with his elite team for an operation to rescue a presidential cabinet minister and his aide who were abducted by guerrilla forces in Val Verde. The team encounters something else. Let the hunt begin! That set up must be the best in any action film.

Starship Troopers is Paul Verhoeven at his most satirical, violent and bloody. As an action film it’s great and always entertaining with a story that keeps the adrenaline pumping. As a science fiction film it’s got a bit of everything, spaceships, aliens and visuals that not only stand up to the passage of time but could rival some modern blockbusters. But for me the best thing in this film is its satire, like many of Verhoeven films its highlight is satire as it is both funny and a fascinating insight into how different ideologies might look in the future. Whilst the acting wasn’t great I don’t care because the characters are great and dialogue is both quotable and so funny it can put tears into a grown man’s eyes. Kill’em kill’em all!

I had a lot of fun watching this film and am going to defend it as much as I can. The swift story, the fun fight choreography, the impressive practical effects and as much gore as possible put a smile on my face. I saw the trailer and this is what I wanted, a fun action-horror B movie. Granted the story and acting could be better and the opportunity to have some fantastic lines was wasted at times but I struggle to understand the majority of the negative reviews. I wonder if this film will ever be recognized as a cult film because I really liked it and so did a few others I have talked to, time will tell. It’s the second most enjoyable experience I have had in the cinema this year and I hope this continues into the spring season. Please leave your opinions in the comments as I am sure there will be some opposing views.

I remember wanting to see this because it looked terrifying. Trailer was fantastic and I like Ethan Hawke. Sadly I found the majority of the film boring and to say the least predictable. Disappointing but at least I didn’t go to cinema to see it. The story was ok but never wowed me. The acting was pretty good but the characters where stupid and boring. I can remember very few lines of dialogue but there was hysterical line from Hawke. Shocks and loud noises make me jump but don’t scare me, if you don’t add to that you get a low score. The style and sound was good. The visuals though where weak, took me right out of the film, must have gotten some kids off the street and told them to walk around Ethan Hawke in old cloths. Massive disappointment let’s move on.

Easily the weirdest film I have ever watched, and coming from me that means a lot! As a horror film it’s terrible but if you pick some of the better shorts it has some clever and thought provoking stuff. In others you get shorts which will bring side splitting laughs. Then you get boring wastes of my time, about 50% I would say. The scoring is always weird on anthologies, so I tried to mark all of the shorts as one rather than marking each. Just because overall the stories are weak doesn’t mean there aren’t a few gems which I will highlight later. I nearly couldn’t watch all of this and would love to know if anyone else managed to see the whole movie in one sitting, anyone?
