Robin Williams has died aged 63

This is terrible news. Robin Williams has died at the age of 63. Even sadder is the fact that he may taken his own life. There is still news coming in, but his longtime personal publicist gave the following statement: “Robin Williams passed away this morning. He has been battling severe depression of late. This is a tragic and sudden loss. The family...

Review: God Help The Girl

Review: God Help The Girl

I wanted to love this film so much. Usually when I have this feeling, one of two things happens. Either the film is dreadful, but the emotion and anticipation that I have invested in it, sees me exonerate it and be enraptured by it regardless. Or it is amazing, but my expectations are so high that whatever brilliance it unleashes, I will never be happy. Sadly,...

Taking place in a semi-post-apocalyptic Australian middle of nowhere, The Rover stars Guy Pearce and Robert Pattinson, and is written and directed by David Michôd (Animal Kingdom).  Some kind of financial meltdown is alluded to having fucked the world up ten years ago, and now Eric (Pearce) cruises the dusty outback, always on the lookout for gas, and just...

Blu-ray review: Starred Up

Blu-ray review: Starred Up

Jack O’ Connell is one of those divisive actors who, still very much at the bottom rung of his career ascension, is a talent that’ll either be adored for his role in TV’s Skins, or loathed for it. Preparing to wipe the slate clean ahead of Starred Up, I’d previously admired his small part in Eden Lake, albeit for his portrayal of a...

I am now a Doctor at The Knick!

I am now a Doctor at The Knick!

One of the great joys of doing what I do are the surprise promotional packages I sometimes receive. Case in point, today I opened a large parcel to find a beautiful wooden box with my initials on. Inside the box were various accoutrements that a doctor in the 1900s would use – Emerson’s Emetic, Nervous Pills for Female Hysteria, Spirit of...

The Expendables 3 is hit and miss because Sly can’t pick his best team

The Expendables 3 is hit and miss because Sly can’t pick his best team

  I thought we’d solved the problem of The Expendables? Stallone’s Expendables 1 was a bit of a mess that didn’t deliver, but Simon West‘s Expendables 2 was a fun action film with lots of lovely fan service. Poor old Patrick Hughes’ Expendables 3 is saddled with a crippling 12A rating and an unnecessarily enormous cast –...

The Legend of Conan may begin filming next year

The Legend of Conan may begin filming next year

Back in March we heard that Andrea Berloff was writing The Legend of Conan, which would see Arnold Schwarzenegger return as Conan. It was thought that filming would begin later this year once Terminator Genesis had wrapped. Turns out that is not the case as they are still working on getting the script right. Producer Fredrik Malmberg recently spoke to...

Possible details on Batman from Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice

Possible details on Batman from Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice

Despite having seen images of Batman, Superman and Wonder Woman from Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice, little is known about the actual plot. One thing that had bugged me about the fact they were bringing in an older Batman for the film was the fact that there was no mention of Bats in Man of Steel. No news report, a passing remark or anything. BadassDigest...
