  • Review: Hellboy (2019) is... nope, already forgotten it

    Movie Review | Matt Looker | 15th April 2019

    In this social media driven age of bite-sized criticism and speedy reactions, opinions often get reduced to simplistic extremes. Fleabag is perfect. Bohemian Rhapsody is the worst. Paul Rudd is life. Liz Lemon is everything. Aquaman is honking bonkersness. Avengers: Age Of Ultron is the best film of the MCU. So it’s surprising when a film like Hellboy (2019) comes along and defies such snappy judgement. And it’s not because the film isn’t bad –it is, it's awful - but because it is neither entertainingly good nor entertainingly bad. It just plays out to dull, listless effect, utterly devoid of a single scintillating superlative that can be attributed to it. It’s a near-unremarkable, mostly forgettable, practically ineffectual film in almost every way. After first coming to the big screen 15 years ago to keep the theological peace, Hellboy has ended up confined to cinematic purgatory.

  • Well, this is the worst poster ever

    Movie Feature | Ali | 16th August 2012

    Some nasty Australian poster designer has ruined the fine legacy of the Resident Evil movies in this atrocious Resident Evil: Retribution one-sheet. What's that? All the films are terrible? Very well then, continue.

  • Trailer for Resident Evil 5: the apocalypse, brought to you by Sony

    Movie Trailer | Ali | 21st January 2012

    Resident Evil: Retribution has a trailer - that's number five, for those keeping count. It's the zombie franchise that JUST WON'T DIE. How does it keep going? Corporate sponsorship, from the looks of it.

  • Milla Jovovich has face blindness

    Movie Trailer | Ali | 15th August 2011

    Milla Jovovich must be cheating on Paul WS Anderson, because she's made a film without him: Faces In The Crowd is a serial killer mystery with added MEDICAL SCIENCE.

  • The Three Musketeers is certainly shaping up to be a film

    Movie Trailer | Ali | 29th June 2011

    Look at this new trailer; it has human actors in it, special effects of some derivation, it even appears to have a script. Yes, Paul WS Anderson's The Three Musketeers will be a film all right.

  • Trailer: The Three Musketeers looks suitably ridiculous

    Movie Trailer | Ali | 27th March 2011

    Unsurprisingly, given that it's from the director of the Resident Evil franchise, historical accuracy is not high on the agenda. Sword-sporting gimps and giant airships on the other hand? YO.

  • Resident Evil 5 to be written by Twits. Er, I mean, Twitter

    Movie News | Chris | 14th September 2010

    Let's hope there's only 140 characters' worth of dialogue.

  • Resident Evil: Afterlife

    Movie Review | Ali | 11th September 2010

    Muuuhhh. Braaaaiiinnnnss (*chomp chomp*). Muuuhhhhhh. Braaiiiiiinnnsss (*chomp chomp chomp*). And that's just the audience. Not having seen any of Paul WS Anderson's Resident Evil series, the packed auditorium of mouth-breathers, chronic texters and grazing fat-asses chewing popcorn in my ear should have been my first clue to the quality of the movie on offer: it's the very definition of 'switch your brain off' entertainment.

  • A Perfect Getaway

    Movie Review | Phyllis | 13th August 2009

    I'm not sure what to make of David Twohy. The man is responsible for Critters 2: The Main Course, Waterworld, G.I. Jane and The Chronicles of Riddick (and unleashing Vin Diesel onto an unsuspecting world, damn it). One might despise him for these vile offences, nay, not just despise, but secretly wish to haul him into the Hague for crimes against humanity.

  • Ultraviolet

    Movie Review | Chris | 11th July 2006

    Allow me start this review by saying right off the bat that Ultraviolet is already the frontrunner for one of the worst movies of the year. I should probably qualify that statement; I suspect there have probably worse movies released already this year, and there will probably be dozens of terrible movies released over the next ...
