The World’s End (2013) Review

I loved what Wright did in the first two films. Shaun of the Dead was a brilliant riff on zombie films and Hot Fuzz was the same with buddy cop films, and all I wanted was the same treatment for an alien invasion. Sadly though I think they missed the mark massively and I found this film very disappointing, sadly Wright’s worst film to date. The film as a comedy was weak and barely had any laughs in comparison to their previous work. The story was equally weak and had near to no coherency; rapidly shooting from boring slap stick fights to heart felt back stories and breakdowns. I have a lot more complaints but when it comes down to it the films a comedy that isn’t funny. 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.

Starship Troopers (1997) Review

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!

The Watch (2012) Review

The watch felt like somebody put a group of comedians into a room and told them to make jokes about an alien invasion, worst thing about this film is its non-existent direction by anybody behind the cameras. Nevertheless it’s funny at times because the people they picked are generally funny comedians so it’s hard not to at least smile at them being uncontrolled. It’s pretty bad as a movie but it does make you occasionally laugh so I putting this in the average list of films. I wouldn’t tell anybody to see but I also wouldn’t scream no! If they said they wanted to see it.

The Best of Christopher Nolan

“Hollywood deserves a better class of director… and I am going to give it to them” – Christopher Nolan. Ok so he didn’t actually say that, but you got to admit that it would be pretty great if he said that at an interview and very true quite frankly.

John Carter (2012) Review

Think I may be crazy, because I actually really liked this film. The film deserved a better rap than it got and the films advertisement was terrible. The main reason I would say the film didn’t make much money was the advertisement because even I didn’t go see it at the cinema and that’s really saying something. A massive surprise to me! That’s some good Sci-Fi.

Prometheus (2012) Review

It’s a good Sci-Fi film with great acting and an interesting plot, but sadly it wasn’t a great Sci-Fi film and definitely wasn’t this generations Alien. But I would love to see a sequel which could easily fix the problems I found with this film.

Men in Black III (2012) Review

It was actually pretty good to my surprise and would say it’s mainly down to Josh Brolin’s fantastic portrayal of a young agent K. In Men in Black 3, Agents J (Will Smith) and K (Tommy Lee Jones) are back…in time. J has seen some inexplicable things in his 15 years with the Men in Black, but nothing, not even aliens, perplexes him as much as his wry, reticent partner. But when K’s life and the fate of the planet are put at stake, Agent J will have to travel back in time to put things right.
