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.)

Jack The Giant Slayer – Review

tt1351685Jack The Giant Slayer – Review

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 FilmFellaJames – 5/10

**SPOILER ALERT**

Sam Raimi is at it again, offering up another soulless visual spectacle, (Spider-Man 3 anyone?) in this the prequel to The Wizard of Oz. Oz The Great and Powerful stars James Franco as the magician trickster con man, Oscar “Oz” Diggs.  He’s on the run because he’s been sniffing around the angry strong man’s sexy assistant and during the process gets whirled away into a twister and teleported into the magical realm of Oz.  When he arrives, he finds a land in distress as an evil wicked witch named Evanora, Read more of this post

Les Misérables – Review

tt1707386Les Misérables – Review

Film Review by FilmFellaJames – 7/10

This is a tricky review to write, I can tell ya.  The problem with Les Misérables, is that the material is HUGELY popular and offending the masses, (as seen during the June Rebellion scenes in this the big screen movie version of a HUGELY popular big theatre musical version based loosely on a novel by Victor Hugo.) is not generally considered to be a good plan.

Film Review by FilmFellaJames – 3d 48fps – 1/10 / 2d version – 9/10.

I set off to watch Peter Jacksons’ long awaited Hobbit movie with all of the giddy school boy enthusiasm one could expect if you knew that the school boy in question was a massive fan of Tolkien and the previous three Jackson Lord of the Rings movies.  Read more of this post

The Top 10 Worst Superhero Movies

By FilmfellaJames

So, you have seen the best, how about we visit some of the worst?  In compiling this list I had a plethora of choice.  The problem was that most of the worst superhero films were made back in the day.  Stinkers such asSpider-Man, The Dragons Challenge/Spider-Man Strikes Back, Superman and the Mole Menand the massively racistAbar, The First Black Superman all leapt out at me ripe for condemnation.  Read more of this post

The Top 10 Best Superhero Movies

By FilmFellaJames

So, I think we can all agree that Hollywood has gone superhero crazy in recent years, a no brainer commercially ever since, in my opinion, the late great Christopher Reeve wrapped a red cape around his broad shoulders in Richard Donners Superman. An apt film title considering the heroic nature that surrounded Reeve, a real life superman. Read more of this post
