Film Review by FilmFellaLozz – 7.9/10

It’s been three years since Robert Downey Jnr. reprised the role of smart-ass, quick-witted metal warrior Iron Man (well, in a movie of his own) and there’s been some changes. Most interesting is that Jon Favreau; the guy responsible for bringing Iron Man to the big screen and bagging the big bucks for Marvel stepped down from his directorial duties. The reasons are not entirely clear, but there’s a suggestion that the studio and Favreau couldn’t agree on speculated budget (constraints). Read more of this post

Film Review by FilmFellaDarren – 6.2/10

It’s the year 2077 – sixty years ago, Earth was rendered a barren apocalyptic wasteland after the destruction of the moon by an alien race caused catastrophic earthquakes and tsunamis that destroyed human civilisations and ravaged our structures. Humanity had a war with the invading aliens – we won the war but lost the planet. Tom Cruise informs us of all these devastating consequences of the demise of the moon in the opening prelude.

Film Review by FilmFellaJames – 7/10

So Steven Soderbergh reckons that this is his last film.  A damn shame if you ask me because this film shows no signs of a director with waning flair.  Soderbergh is bang on the money in this pharmaceutical thriller starring Britain’s golden Boy, Jude Law and Rooney Mara. (Not to be confused with Wayne Rooney, a shrek-looking football maestro.)

Film Review by FilmFellaJames – 7/10

So, Bryan Singer of dubious fame, Superman Returns, X-Men, it’s a debate full of the Usual Suspects and therefore it is fitting that now, amongst the giddy haze of Singer/McQuarrie combos that delight or repulse the curious and engaged fans, we have a Fairytale Happy Meal, chock full, of giants!

Jack The Giant Slayer is a slice of cinematic wonderment.  The story unfolds a curious tale of ancient England besieged by a tribe of Giants from a distant realm, above the clouds. Read more of this post

Film review by FilmFellaLozz – 6.4/10

Occasionally, well rarely…hardly ever honestly, will I actually voluntarily to make a special trip to the cinema to see a ‘girls’ night out’ movie. Majorly because I’m a man. A man who likes his movies with substance; or something that has action and/or unnecessary nudity…I’m not fussy. Well…on this occasion I though I’d treat my lady, Read more of this post

Film review by FilmFellaDarren – 6.7/10

This is not a rom-com. The humour is far too acerbic and bitter to be classed as such – any romance that the central couple had, must have deserted it many moons ago.  If they were to have been a rom-com couple then their time was decades ago – this is a couple with seemingly no distance left to run. Actually they’ve already featured in a rom-com – Read more of this post
