Mortal Kombat: Legacy (Live Action) Web Series Review

I just watched this at the weekend after the series second season trailer came out (wow!). So apparently to adapt a video game into anything remotely good you have to launch a live action web series. Granted this web series isn’t perfect but it was much better than I thought it would be and definitely better than the last film they made of Mortal Kombat. I knew a little of the back stories from the games but not much and it was fun to see them played out as a prologue to the game. The fights in this are great and really fun to watch, my only complaint is I want more! The visuals are also strong in this series, costumes and settings where impressively realistic in their appearance. The acting and dialogue was a little all over the place but wasn’t too bad, some were actually good but not most.

The Avengers (2012) Re-Review

This Re-Review is because of The Avengers coming out soon on DVD, so get a copy and enjoy. Joss Whedon you beautiful man you. Well he has done what many thought would be impossible creating a film with six superheroes without it being a total mess. The film is not only not bad but in my opinion pretty damn perfect. By perfect I mean I honestly don’t have any complaints, no stupid stuff, no boring scenes, it’s just a great action film. Marvel Studios presents Marvel’s The Avengers-the Super Hero team up of a lifetime, featuring iconic Marvel Super Heroes Iron Man, The Incredible Hulk, Thor, Captain America, Hawkeye and Black Widow.

Winner of The Best/Worst of Sylvester Stallone

Since the ‘Expendables 2’ is coming out next month I thought it would be fun to do ‘the best of’ for the three biggest action stars, done Schwarzenegger a while ago and will link that below, a couple of weeks ago I did Willis’s best films and now I am doing Stallone’s best films and worst because I am not a huge fan of his. Just to point out that Stallone is a terrible actor and this list is so small that I am even including two of his films that I don’t like because it’s relevant to another release (Dredd). I haven’t actually watched a great deal of his films but apparently everything that isn’t part one of the series below is awful (well three other films that are apparently good but I haven’t seen them), cant verify that but I don’t particular like his work so I won’t be paying to see his worst (worst list not going to happen just this post).

The Cabin in the Woods (2012) Re-Review

Five friends go to a remote cabin in the woods. Bad things happen. If you think you know this story, think again. From fan favorites Joss Whedon and Drew Goddard comes The Cabin in the Woods, a mind blowing horror film that turns the genre inside out. That’s the description released by Lionsgate, so does it live up to its hype? Yes, yes it does.

Flags of Our Fathers & Letters from Iwo Jima (2006) Review

It’s a double review, not going to do this very often and I am only doing it for these two because they are made as a companion to each other. Both of these films show a very realistic portrayal of the battle of Iwo Jima and deserve great praise for acting and visuals when considering the relatively low budget of the two films. In saying that I find Letters from Iwo Jima better to watch and I also view it as a much better film in general.

Winner of The Best of Bruce Willis

Since the ‘Expendables 2’ is coming out next month I thought it would be fun to do ‘the best of’ for the three biggest action stars, done Schwarzenegger a while ago and will link that below, this is obviously Willis’s best films and next week I will be doing Stallone’s best films. Just to point out that although films like ‘Pulp Fiction’ are excellent Willis was not the main character so will not be on the list. But that won’t hold back Bruce because he has done some great films mainly action but also some great Sci-Fi which makes me a fan.

Stake Land (2011) Review

Surprisingly good, truly an old school vampire film which I have seen in a while. I wish there were more films like this around as they would save the reputation of vampires (Twilight nearly killed it forever). The film is a great piece of storytelling, which works well focusing on a classic hunter of the scourge which is vampires. Strangely it’s what I would like to see a bit more of in the walking dead here’s hoping for season 3. It’s a well-crafted atmospheric apocalyptic vision.

Best Films of 2012 – Part 1

Ok so we are now into the 7th month of the year so I thought I would put my favourite films of the year into monthly winners for the first half of 2012. Obviously part 2 won’t be coming out until January next year so keep an eye out for that when I will also reveal my winner of the year in genre categories (nobody really cares, just look at the pretty posters). Each winner is only put in a mini review but has been linked to the full reviews if you want to read more.

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.
