Movie Review – Skyscraper (2018)

Skyscraper, 2018.

Directed by Rawson Marshall Thurber.

Starring Dwayne Johnson, Neve Campbell, Chin Han, Noah Taylor, Hannah Quinlivan, Roland Møller, McKenna Roberts and Noah Cottrell.

Synopsis:

A father goes to great lengths to save his family from a burning skyscraper.

The plot for Skyscraper is unbelievably stupid and the various death-defying set pieces even more so, nevertheless it’s great mindless fun. In his latest action role Dwayne Johnson plays Will Sawyer, a former Marine and FBI Agent who is now a security assessor, following a mission gone wrong and a life changing injury some ten years earlier. He has been assigned to assess The Pearl, a gigantic building in Hong Kong, for any security issues. After a team hijack the building and set it on fire with his family still inside, Will must defy the odds and save the day.

There is no new ground covered in Skyscraper and it

New Gundam Breaker Review

Sadly, I’m old enough to have played more than my fair share of absolutely terrible video games, from dodgy movie tie-ins to shareware abominations that were never meant for mass consumption. Some of these I played because I enjoyed the source material — you’ll never convince me that my time with Darkman or Robocop 2 on the Nes was completely and utterly wasted — while others simply satisfied my morbid curiosity. I haven’t encountered anything like the Nes version of Total Recall since my childhood (Deadly Premonition doesn’t count), but then I had the misfortune of playing Bandai Namco’s New Gundam Breaker, one of the most busted and broken titles I’ve played in decades. It’s the type of product that makes you hang your head and sigh at the state of our current “patch culture,” where games can ship broken as long as the developers

Unnecessary Reboots, Remakes and Sequels

Tom Jolliffe looks at Hollywood’s preoccupation with reboots, remakes and sequels…

I sit here in the year 2018. Suddenly I find myself compelled to moan about the unimaginative approach to greenlighting Hollywood studio pictures. This is not a new phenomenon, it’s old hat. As of now the vast majority of greenlit, large studio films are adaptations, sequels, reboots or remakes. The whole reboot, sequel and remake malarkey is now merging entirely into one thing.

Currently you have a new Terminator in production which is a reboot, described as a true sequel, which will conveniently forget everything after the second film. I can see why you’d want to forget those, of course, but given the fact that from Terminator 3 onward, every attempted new Terminator film has underwhelmed, you wonder why they bother. Likewise, we’re getting a new Halloween remakebootequel. It will essentially be just another Halloween, following the slasher formula,

Second Opinion – Skyscraper (2018)

Skyscraper, 2018.

Directed by Rawson Marshall Thurber

Starring Dwayne Johnson, Neve Campbell, Pablo Schreiber, Noah Taylor, Roland Møller, Hannah Quinlivan, McKenna Roberts, Kevin Rankin, Byron Mann, Matt O’Leary, and Chin Han.

Synopsis:

When former FBI agent Will Sawyer (Dwayne Johnson) takes a lucrative building safety job at the behest of his friend Ben (Pablo Schreiber), he travels with his family to Hong Kong to assess the tallest structure in the world. While there he becomes embroiled in an international terrorist attack that triggers an enormous fire, trapping his wife (Neve Campbell) and kids in the upper reaches of the skyscraper.

Before we address the merits of Skyscraper, it’s worth noting the power of the film’s most impressive monolith; Dwayne Johnson. Here is a man who was the buoyancy aid in the floater that was Baywatch, dragged the mediocre Rampage to $425 million worldwide, and convinced people to roll the

Toby Kebbell Will Play The Villain in Vin Diesel's Bloodshot

Toby Kebbell has joined Vin Diesel's feature film adaptation of the comic book Bloodshot. According to The Wrap, Kebbell will be taking on the villainous character Axe. I like Kebbell and this should be a good role for him to take on.

Diesel is set to play the title role Bloodshot, a super-soldier created by the secret government organization Project Rising Spirit when he was brought back from the dead through the use of nanotechnology and suffering total memory loss, and struggles to reconnect with who he was while learning what sort of weapon he has become, with the help of a group of other augmented combatants called Chainsaw.

Bloodshot has powers of regeneration, technomancy and meta-morphing, which was made possible through nanites that were injected into his blood.

Kebbell also joins the previously cast Michael Sheen, Eiza González, Talulah Riley, Alex Hernandez and “Outlander’s” Sam Heughan.

Suspiria: The right way to remake?

Tom Jolliffe looks ahead to the Suspiria remake…

Remakes or reboots. The year is 2018 and we’ve firmly established that the movie making engine runs largely off these, as well as sequels and adaptations. If it’s been done once to a degree of success and cult appeal, then why not do it again?

It would be a mistake to say that remakes are inherently awful. To remake something requires a level of cult appeal in the first place, and thus the studio notion that there will be an audience again. The truth is most remakes or reboots are terrible. Sometimes they do get it right though. John Carpenters, The Thing is an all time classic. It was a remake. This was even in an era when many remakes were known for being pale imitators of the original source. Since the turn of the century though, the amount of reboots has gone through the roof.

When Dinosaurs Ruled The Earth: The Summer of Cinema 1993 – 25 Years Later

The summer of 1993 felt like a high stakes cinematic card trick. A full deck of superstars was roughly shuffled so that by summer’s end, some kings ended up as jokers and many a knave turned over a sweet ace. Bluffs were called, some royal flushes turned up out of nowhere, and in the end the whole table was kicked over by a T-Rex, sending all the chips flying.

This week we will once again see a merry band of naive, edible human beings sharing the screen with monstrous dinosaurs as Jurassic World returns with Fallen Kingdom. Perhaps we’re used to it by now, but back in 1993, the last time man and dinosaur had teamed up to any noticeable effect was probably The Valley of the Gwangi. The seismic leap forward in special effects since then meant that the release of Jurassic Park was a genuine movie event, much

How the 2016 Election Influenced ‘Philip K. Dick’s Electric Dreams’ Adaptation

Long before Amazon explored the world of Philip K. Dick with the anthology series “Electric Dreams,” writer-director Dee Rees found herself enamored with his work. In addition to counting a number of films adapted from his writing amongst her favorites (including “Blade Runner” and “Total Recall”), Dees attempted to turn Dick’s short story, “The Martian Time-Slip,” into a feature. Though it didn’t work out, she had a fan in the late author’s daughter, Isa Dick Hackett, who brought Rees aboard “Electric Dreams.”

Rees had a number of Dick’s short stories to choose from, but she says
