    I don't think anyone, bar film executives, was clamouring for another Terminator film. Even fans of the series would admit that the films have been on a massive decline since the awesome first two However, the studio climate being what it is means we now have another entry in the Terminator saga.

    Unlike many people, I love the post Matrix career of the Wachowskis. I've never understood the critical indifference and/or slatings that met V for Vendetta, Cloud Atlas and Speed Racer when they came out. I think Cloud Atlas is a masterpiece and I love V for Vendetta and Speed Racer. Despite an underwhelming trailer, I was ready to stick up for what I was sure was going to be another misunderstood gem.

    I've really enjoyed The Hunger Games series and I'm rather sad it's all over. When the first one came out, initially I dismissed it as Twilight-esque young adult fodder, eagerly chasing the same demographic. However, I was blown away. It had a proper story, a decent cast and dealt with some genuinely dark and mature themes.

    Largely unknown writer-director Jon Watts caused a stir at film festivals earlier this year with Cop Car. Not only did it remind people that Kevin Bacon is a legitimate actor and not just an enthusiastic mobile phone salesman, but it got the attention of blockbuster bigwigs who signed Watts to helm the new Spider-Man reboot.
  • James Bond: Spectre (2015)

    Posted: 28th October 2015 | Written by: Ben Browne

    Daniel Craig's stint as James Bond has been a re-invigoration for the 50 year old franchise having stagnated since the late '90s. People were tired of the campy, invisible car levels of goofiness during the latter Pierce Brosnan years and were getting their spy fix from more modern, exciting productions of the Bourne ilk.

    Sometimes it seems like movies were made to show off cars. Some cars are simply so great that they seem ready to drive their way off the screen, or they become iconic by carving out their own place in cinema history.

    There was a lot of positive internet buzz concerning John Wick when it was released earlier this year. However, people too busy and popular to keep up to date with film nerd internet chatter may have missed out on it and that is an injustice I won't stand for, dammit.

    It's interesting to chart the evolution of the Mission: Impossible series over time. The first was a convoluted “everyone betraying everyone” thriller whereas M:I 2 was unconstrained by logic and physics and had lots of slow motion and doves.
  • Foxcatcher (2015)

    Posted: 3rd September 2015 | Written by: Ben Browne

    Foxcatcher was released at the very start of this year just in time for awards season, conveniently enough. I decided to choose it because it feel it got unfairly lost in the shuffle when it came to the slew of “worthy films” that came out around the same time.
