Why Hank Pym Should Appear in Avengers: Age Of Ultron

6 hours ago

Thomas Roach on why Hank Pym should make an appearance in Avengers: Age of Ultron

Currently there are two Marvel films in production. One is the highly anticipated sequel Avengers: Age of Ultron and the other is Ant-Man. Without a doubt the end credits scene (or one of them) for Age of Ultron will feature something leading into Ant-Man. This would be logical as Ant-Man is a smaller property and Avengers: Age of Ultron will be massive. Offering a preview or tease for Ant-Man in the Avengers sequel would mean that a lot more people will end up seeing it at the cinema. All Marvel films are connected, yet some are clearly stronger box office draws than others ,and by advertising this rather obscure property on the back of the Avengers it would certainly ensure more ticket sales.

As many people will know, in the comic books it was actually Hank Pym (a. »

Movie Review – Guardians of the Galaxy (2014)

13 hours ago

Guardians of the Galaxy, 2014.

Directed by James Gunn.

Starring Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana, Dave Bautista, Lee PaceMichael Rooker, Karen Gillan, Djimon Hounsou, Glenn Close, John C. Reilly, Josh Brolin, Benicio Del Toro and Peter Serafinowicz with the voice talents of Bradley Cooper and Vin Diesel.

Synopsis:

In the far reaches of space, an American pilot named Peter Quill finds himself the object of a manhunt after stealing an orb coveted by the villainous Ronan.

Marvel’s Phase Two has without a doubt been successful; however it is quite easy for people to overlook the risks that have been taken throughout and up to their latest offering with Guardians of the Galaxy. From Ben Kingsley’s turn as the Mandarin/Trevor Slattery in Iron Man 3 to their destruction of S.H.I.E.L.D in Captain America: The Winter Solider and the far reaching effects that has »

Movie Review – Video Games: The Movie (2014)

13 hours ago

Video Games: The Movie, 2014

Written and directed by Jeremy Snead

Synopsis:

Video Games: The Movie, a feature length documentary, aims to educate & entertain audiences about how video games are made, marketed, and consumed by looking back at gaming history and culture through the eyes of game developers, publishers, and consumers.

Funded by a Kickstarter campaign, Video Games: The Movie is a documentary that charts the history of video games before focusing on the cultures that it created and where the medium can go from here. It’s incredibly interesting and very well put together with some decent interviews, but feels a bit lacking in certain places.

Video Games: The Movie wants to be more than just a history of the medium, which is very admirable, but it does cover the very early beginnings of video games before briefly chronicling the rise and fall of Atari all the way to present day. »

Here’s an image from the Guardians of the Galaxy’s post-credits scene: Best Cameo Ever

15 hours ago

Warning: Guardians of the Galaxy spoilers to follow…

It’s a given that every Marvel offering will feature a fun little tongue-in-cheek post-credits scene. After bearing witness to two hours of drama and action, it’s a pleasant gesture to have the final takeaway from the film consist of something lighthearted. Send the audience home with a smile they can’t wipe off their face.

Guardians of the Galaxy is no different, but director James Gunn has opted for a post-credits scene that captures the spirit and irreverent tone of the rest of the film. Ladies and gentlemen, Howard the Duck has returned and is apparently a thing in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. If you’re having flashbacks of terror to that god-awful monstrosity of a film, remember that this is just a playful joke, and that there are no plans to actually make a new Howard the Duck film. »

Book Review – The Girl With All The Gifts by M. R. Carey

18 hours ago

David Fleming reviews The Girl With All The Gifts by M.R. Carey…

In a world that is over saturated with the zombie apocalypse scenario it’s hard to imagine a fresh approach popping up, but it does happen. When Danny Boyle released 28 Days Later, not many people had given thought to the idea of a zombie who could really chase you down. We were so used to the idea of the slow moving lumbering zombies that gave you time to stop and put on your running shoes that to suddenly have those Usain Bolt-esque zombies was something of a giant leap.

Well earlier this year M. R. Carey made a similar leap with The Girl With All The Gifts. I hadn’t heard about it at launch, and in case you didn’t either, it’s time to go and buy a copy.

We’re introduced to Melanie, »

Movie Review – Step Up 5: All In (2014)

18 hours ago

Step Up 5: All In, 2014

Directed by Trish Sie

Starring Ryan Guzman, Briana Evigan, Adam G. Sevani, Misha Gabriel Hamilton, Stephen Boss, Stephen Stevo Jones, David Shreibman, Mari Koda, Christopher Scott, Luis Rosado and Chadd Smith

Synopsis:

All-stars from the previous Step Up installments come together in glittering Las Vegas, battling for a victory that could define their dreams and their careers.

The fifth entry into the Step Up series doesn’t bring anything new to the table, but then it doesn’t feel like it was trying to. Step Up 5: All In is just another entry into the popular dance franchise with sub-par acting, impressive choreography and a whole load of nothing else.

The Mob are on hard times. They did have “the Nike advert”, but since then it has just been rejection after rejection from various auditions. It gets so bad that the whole crew head back to Miami, »

Movie Review – Hide Your Smiling Faces (2013)

18 hours ago

Hide Your Smiling Faces, 2013

Directed by Daniel Patrick Carbone

Starring Ryan Jones, Nathan Varnson, Colm O’Leary, Thomas Cruz, Christina Starbuck and Chris Kies

Synopsis:

After a neighborhood tragedy, two adolescent brothers confront changing relationships, the mystery of nature, and their own mortality. Hide Your Smiling Faces is an atmospheric exploration of rural American life through the often distorted lens of youth.

Telling the most low-key story of two young boys dealing with a tragic death in their small town, Hide Your Smiling Faces is an art film with a capital ‘A’. It’s low on story and heavy in tone, but it’s also very dull and dreary.

Despite having a run time of 81 minutes, Hide Your Smiling Faces drags its heels through each scene and ends up feeling longer than the near-three-hour Transformers: Age of Extinction. Debut director Daniel Patrick Carbone has carved a slice of real-life with »

Movie Review – Infernal Affairs (2002)

18 hours ago

Infernal Affairs (China: Wu jian dao), 2002

Directed by Andrew Lau and Alan Mak

Starring Andy Lau, Tony Leung and Anthony Wong

Synopsis

This isa tale of a mole in the police department and undercover cop. Their objectives are the same: to find out who is the mole, and who is the cop.

Everyone knows The Departed is a remake of a foreign film, right? When The Raid and Let the Right One In is green-lit for a Us, English-speaking production, film-fans complain. But side-by-side, both Infernal Affairs and The Departed stand on their own, and share the same DNA in more than the story alone. Infernal Affairs is the blueprint for Scorsese – and as a plan, it is easy to see why he was so keen to remake it with the Boston-based themes that transferred so well.

Tony Rayn’s review in Sight and Sound, in 2004, confesses how “very little »

Comic Book Review – Chew: Warrior Chicken Poyo Special

19 hours ago

Jessie Robertson reviews Chew: Warrior Chicken Poyo Special…

“Poyo was exposed to a near-lethal amount of radiation as an egg during the first stage of a government experiment to create mutant super soldiers……trained in exotic martial arts techniques by Tibetan Kung Fu Fightin’ Monks……and given strange bio-enhancements during a rash of farm animal abductions by extra-terrestrials. Nah. Just Kidding. None of that shit is true. Poyo is just really, Really Bad Ass.”

Poyo is just that. A Bad Ass. One Bad Ass Chicken. And if you want to see how much ass one chicken can kick, this is the book for you. If you want a hero who does not stick around for the glory, but always on another mission to save someone in need, Poyo is your hero. Your chicken. Your chicken hero. Yeah, that works.

This book is exactly as advertised; complete and utter fun in the style of Chew. »

Roger & Me, Tiff Docs and Master Programmes announced for Tiff 2014

23 hours ago

Documentaries will have a significant presence at 39th edition of the Toronto International Film Festival.  “I’m thrilled that a 25th anniversary screening is being held at the Toronto International Film Festival, where it premiered and was awarded the Festival’s major prize, the People’s Choice Award,” stated Michael Moore who will be attending the event. “The fact that Roger & Me is as relevant today as it was 25 years ago is a travesty. Actually, it’s more than that. At least in 1989, there were still 50,000 General Motors jobs left in Flint. Today, there are but 4,000 Gm jobs that remain in Flint, the birthplace of General Motors.”

Tiff will be showcasing new documentaries by Nick Broomfield, Ethan Hawke, The Yes Men, Joshua Oppenheimer, Frederick Wiseman, Jonathan Nossiter plus the debut efforts of Marah Strauch and Tamara Erde.  “This year’s selection is heavily populated with rebels, resisters and risk-takers,” remarked Tiff Docs programmer Thom Powers. »
