Spy – Review (Spoiler Free)

A surprisingly funny if unsubtle spy caper that delivers plenty of laughs and violent action… I went into this one full of trepidation. We have seen many spy comedies before and the vast majority are unimaginative slapstick duds. On top of that I’m not really a fan of the gross out/foul-mouthed humour which McCarthy and […]

Jane Got a Gun Reveals First Images

Jane Got a Gun shakes off its troubled production with a fresh batch of new images… There have seemingly been few films in recent years with such a troubled production as Jane Got a Gun.

It throws in endless fun elements such as giant retro 30’s imagined robots, ray guns and a P-40 War Hawk aeroplane with […]

Already past 2012’s halfway point, I’ve taken a look at the upcoming and currently showing films for the year, and ranked them in order of my interest and anticipation. There were a lot of candidates for the top ten but work through them I did, and in the process confirmed what I have long suspected; […]
