  • Star Trek

    Movie Review | Mark | 9th May 2009

    Let's play a little game of word association. If I said 'majestic', 'enjoyable' and 'meaningful', you wouldn't think Star Trek, right? No. But if I said 'lazy', 'predictable' and 'dull'.... well, that's Star Trek down to a tee - at least, that's how it's been for the past decade and a half. Of late, Star Trek has been a poten...

  • Indiana Jones And The Kingdom Of The Crystal Skull

    Movie Review | Ali | 21st May 2008

    16 July, 1999. The queue for the cinema spills out into the car park. Crowds jostle with energy and a sense of adventure. The screen is packed to capacity, a quick glance revealing the audience to be a cross-section of both males and females, young and old. The lights go down to giggles at first and finally, respectfully, an awe...

    Movie Review | Andy | 31st December 2007

The other is The Fresh Prince of Bel Air; he makes films like Bad Boys, Independence Day, Men in Black and any other number of wise-cracking action hero eyewip...

  • Pirates Of The Caribbean: At World's End

    Movie Review | Ali | 20th June 2007

    The first Pirates movie - launched into choppy waters way back in 2003 - was an accidental success. Based on a Disney theme park ride and setting sail with very little fanfare, it nonetheless blew the summer blockbusters out of the water. Last year's sequel, Dead Man's Chest, took the plunge with slightly more in the way of pu...

  • Serenity

    Movie Review | Chris | 1st March 2006

    Serenity is the big-screen adaptation of the short-lived cult TV series, Firefly, as well as creator Joss Whedon's first fully written and directed feature. Unfortunately, it's also probably the end of the road for this particular franchise (it performed rather poorly at the box office) but like the television show that spawned...
