  • Look Who's Talking being remade because God hates us

    Movie News | Ali | 31st March 2010

    There are literally no more movies from the eighties to remake. Sorry Hollywood, the decade's dry. Move on to the nineties. Or better yet, eat a bag of dicks and die.

  • Weekend At Bernie's remake will literally flog a dead corpse

    Movie News | Ali | 31st January 2010

    Hurry up and climb that mountain or kiss that girl you like, because the world is about to end - right after the release of the remake of Weekend At Bernie's. Because only a cruel, vengeful God would allow such a thing.

  • The Last House On The Left

    Movie Review | Ali | 14th June 2009

    There's something off-putting about the current brand of horror remakes. The movies that are being refitted from the seventies and eighties are ones whose names still resonate today, due to the controversy they caused at the time (see: The Hills Have Eyes, Friday The 13th, Texas Chainsaw Massacre etc.) But the so-called 'video n...

  • 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...

  • Friday The 13th

    Movie Review | Ali | 14th February 2009

In fact, a Friday The 13th remake is one of the safest bets imaginable, and paired with a release date nobody's likely to forget - the day before Valentine's, no less - t...

  • Quarantine

    Movie Review | Ali | 22nd November 2008

    Some films are remade so that a creative director may give an original spin on an iconic movie. Some films are remade and re-imagined so they may be re-appraised by a new, younger audience. Some films, however, are remade so that fussy American popcorn-grazers needn't worry about doing anything as complicated as reading subtitle...

  • The Incredible Hulk

    Movie Review | Ali | 9th June 2008

    It's no real mystery that Ang Lee's Hulk failed to set the box-office alight. What do you expect when you hire the director behind films like The Ice Storm and Sense And Sensibility to adapt a comic-book about a big green ball of rage? You get what you pay for.
