New Birdman trailer is a crazy piece of wonder

A new trailer for Alejandro González Iñárritu’s Birdman has been released and it looks absolutely incredible. Totally mad, but in a good way. Birdman or The Unexpected Virtue of Ignorance is a black comedy that tells the story of an actor (Michael Keaton) – famous for portraying an iconic superhero – struggles to mount a Broadway play. In the days...

Guardians of the Galaxy is “a two hour deep tissue massage of your joy receptors.”

Guardians of the Galaxy is “a two hour deep tissue massage of your joy receptors.”

James Gunn blasts the Marvel Cinematic Universe into space. And not twee, Branagh’s Thor space – mental, planet-hopping, aliens everywhere, insane looking space ships, Star Wars on ‘shrooms space. An excitingly close to confusing “You’ll pick it up as you go along” attitude to plot – the warring alien races, the frail peace treaty...

Joe Swanberg’s Happy Christmas is an out of season indie gem

Joe Swanberg’s Happy Christmas is an out of season indie gem

I know, I know – it’s Summertime, but, weird timing aside, forget the Christmas thing. It’s not important.

Review: Bad Ass 2: Bad Asses – “A sexagenarian Justice League!”

Review: Bad Ass 2: Bad Asses – “A sexagenarian Justice League!”

Bad Ass 1 was Danny Trejo’s Batman. Seriously, go watch Bad Ass. In Bad Ass 2 he teams up with Danny Glover, but that doesn’t make Bad Asses an OAP Batman and Robin, it’s more like a sexagenarian Justice League. With only two members. And they are both Batman.   Danny Trejo’s Frank Vega became Bad Ass in the first movie after...
