Review: Jurassic Park live at the Royal Albert Hall

Review: Jurassic Park live at the Royal Albert Hall
It may not surprise you to learn that I have seen Jurassic Park before. In fact, I've seen it a multitude of ways. I've seen it at the cinema. I've seen it in 3D. I've seen it in IMAX. I've seen it on VHS, DVD and Blu-Ray. I've seen it in a big field. I've seen it projected in a pub basement in London Bridge on a stag night (okay, on my stag night). I've seen three-quarters of it in Italian on a hotel room TV set. I've now seen it at the Royal Albert Hall with a live score from the Royal Philarmonic Concert Orchestra. I can confirm that the last way I saw it is definitely the best. Way better than the Italian hotel room version (although, to be fair, I never saw the ending).

Bruce Willis' new generic thriller revealed to be a Predator sequel
Curiously, the exciting reveal for the remake of Predator II - previously known to nobody that cared as 'Marauders' - was made with its Romanian poster. I really don't think much of the new-look Pradators though. (via IMPA)

Suicide Squad, DC and the Warner Bros war against coherence

Suicide Squad, DC and the Warner Bros war against coherence
It should be abundantly clear now to anyone with even a passing interest in superhero movies that the concept of the "shared universe" should be feared. Credit to Marvel: they took a big risk, did their groundwork and built up their shared universe by releasing not one but four successful individual franchises, before bringing them together like a corporate executive doing an overbite and interlocking his fingers in the universal sign language for 'synergy'. Everyone else saw The Avengers' box-office success and thought, 'Yeah, we'll have a bit of that. But sod all that hard work!' And thus, the very blueprint for superhero movies was torn up, sellotaped back together and plonked on the desks of finance departments throughout Hollywood.

EU Referendum game-changer: The Shiznit backs Remain
In line with all the UK's other major news outlets, The Shiznit is declaring its stance on the EU Referendum. As a forward-looking, progressive website which is only racist behind closed doors and even then it's only a bit of fun, we urge you to vote to remain in the European Union. If you don't, the following truly awful film-related things will 100% definitely happen.

Stopped, just as he was really starting to throw his whole weight behind it. Who knows what kind of rhythmic body-jolting this would have resulted in had he been allowed to carry on?

Fans outraged by female-led Ghostbusters porn parody
A new adult version of classic 80s movie Ghostbusters has drawn criticism from fans of the original for reimagining its main characters as female. Many have claimed that the new film, which sees its female stars engage in a number of explicit sexual acts with male 'ghosts', is a case of "feminism gone mad".
