Review: The Skeleton Twins

Review: The Skeleton Twins

You’d not usually associate SNLers with serious drama, but when director Craig Johnson paired Bill Hader and Kristen Wiig for his darkly amusing, yet poignant drama about depression and suicide, he struck the proverbial gold when it turns out that both, and more surprisingly Hader, can handle meatier, deeper, and more serious roles incredibly well. It’s...

Blu-ray Review: The Hundred-Year-Old Man Who Climbed Out of the Window and Disappeared

Blu-ray Review: The Hundred-Year-Old Man Who Climbed Out of the Window and Disappeared

Felix Herngren’s big-screen adaptation of the successful book about a man who, on his 100th birthday decides to make a run for it (or more of a slow, nonchalant shuffle in honesty), feels kind of familiar in a welcoming way. The comparison to Forrest Gump is perhaps unavoidable, because The Hundred-Year-Old Man Who Climbed Out of the Window and...

Blu-ray review: Godzilla (2014)

Blu-ray review: Godzilla (2014)

Early previews of Gareth Edwards’ reboot of the age-old iconic monster movie suggested that this, by all intents and purposes, was ‘The One’. Taking inspiration from the original 1954 flick seemed to be the path the Monsters director ventured down, with an attempt to distance from the summer blockbuster-y 1998 version presented by Roland...

13 Days of Horror: Cannibal Holocaust

13 Days of Horror: Cannibal Holocaust

Halloween is almost upon us. Between now and then we will be bringing you a horror film review each day.

The horror movie that many hail as the founding father to the...

Review: Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (2014)

Review: Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (2014)

It’s easy to be extremely sceptical of this Michael Bay-produced, Jonathan Liebesman-directed Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles reboot, but as with anything I come across, I try to give it the benefit of the doubt beforehand. It didn’t help that initially the heroes in a half shell were set to be aliens from outer space, but I can report that —...
