Midnight Run (1988) Blu-ray Review
21 hours ago
Director: Martin Brest
Running Time: 126 mins
In 1988 Universal released Midnight Run, a high-profile action comedy. It contained several elements that were unusual for a film of its type. For starters, Robert De Niro was the lead. The idea of this brooding method actor playing it light was virtually unthinkable at the time, with Analyze This a decade away. He appeared alongside Charles Grodin, hardly a stellar name. The men improvised some of their dialogue. Danny Elfman delivered a score about as far removed from his usual style as it was possible to get. It found success at the box office, though perhaps it’s inevitable the result ended up as more of a cult offering, »

Monsters was the film that launched director Gareth Edwards. Following on from the success of his guerrilla baby Edwards has gone on to direct Godzilla and is now hard at work on the first stand alone Star Wars movie, Star Wars: Rogue One.

More ‘Jurassic World’ Posters Exhumed
20 April 2015 12:13 AM, PDT
Friday saw us teased with one of three new one sheet promotional posters for Jurassic World. At the time we told you that Universal would be releasing more over the weekend and we can now share those pictures with you. Friday’s offering was a riff on the Fifty Shades Of Grey poster (well sort of) and had Bryce Dallas Howard face to face with the ‘D-Rex’ (and can be found here). The new two include the world’s greatest aquarium, complete with shark eating Mosasaurus, as well as a moody night shot of Chris Pratt riding on a motorcycle alongside a pack of Velociraptor’s.
Jurassic World storms into cinemas on 11 June 2015. Are you excited?

Tff 2015: Game Day Kicks Off With Bangs, Hangs, Schlongs and Unreal Goings-on
19 April 2015 11:51 PM, PDT
It’s early Friday morning here in New York and rather than living it up in the city that never sleeps, I’m sitting here… at my computer, staring – no that’s not right, glaring sounds more like it – hoping that the words to sum up the experiences of Day 1 at the Tribeca Film Festival will magically appear on screen for me, doing justice to the films I’ve seen today and not coming across like I’m gloating about viewing some amazing films yet to slated in the UK.
Pfft bugger that – I’m going to crow til the cows come home.
Day 2 here at Tff 2015 kicked off with a literal bang and has kept me on my toes for the rest of the day. I’ve had violent delights with John Maclean, experienced a mid-morning bout of melancholy thanks to Jeppe Rønde and his thought provoking film (which »

Tff 2015: The Overnight Review
19 April 2015 11:29 PM, PDT
Director: Patrick Brice
Run Time: 80 minutes
Synopsis: After relocating to Los Angeles from Seattle, a 30-something couple and their young son have a chance encounter with a similar family who invite them over for a family pizza night that quickly turns into nothing like a pizza night once the children go to bed.
It’s been quite some time since I’ve seen an hilariously funny film where the laughs just keep coming, but thanks to Patrick Brice’s second directorial feature about two thirty-something couples ready to play when the kids hit the hay, the drought appears to be finally broken.

‘Fantastic Four’ Official Trailer Arrives
19 April 2015 9:32 PM, PDT
With teasers and trailers having dropped for this summer’s Ant-man, this Christmas’ Star Wars: The Force Awakens, and next summer’s Batman V Superman; Dawn Of Justice, Fox have decided to get in the ring with a full trailer for their big reboot, Fantastic Four. The film, which stars Miles Teller as Mr. Fantastic, is once again providing an origin story, but this time it is much more serious than what we were given in 2005.
Director of Chornicle, Josh Trank, takes the helm in an effort to keep the rights at Fox while also improving on the box office take of Fantastic Four: Rise Of The Silver Surfer. I actually enjoyed the last two movies, with them offering a bright and campier film for younger audiences. It was a nice respite from the gloominess of Nolan’s Batman films, Spider-Man’s angst, and X-Men’s social commentary. »
