Avengers Assemble (2012) | Review
Official Synopsis: Nick Fury of S.H.I.E.L.D. brings together a team of super humans to form The Avengers to help save the Earth from Loki and his army.
2012 has no shortage of high profile releases with the first, and potentially biggest in terms of likely box-office pull, is with us in the form of The Avengers. Banded about since Tony Stark first donned the now famed metal suit back in the 2008 release […]

Tagline: Some assembly required
While it is true to say that I wasn’t expecting a lot from this film from the outset, I did will it to be better than it was… sadly I was disappointed. I think it only fair to begin with the plus points. One entire point [...]
Battleship (2012) | Review
Official Synopsis: A fleet of ships is forced to do battle with an armada of unknown origins in order to discover and thwart their destructive goals.
Infamous for being based on the board game, Battleship was greeted with understandable scepticism from the outset, particularly with pop star Rihanna joining the cast for her feature length debut. Then Liam Neeson was tempted onboard, suggesting there might be something to it. The first 30 […]

Tagline: The Battle for Earth Begins at Sea
This is a confusing film for me. It should have been so bad… I should have hated it… but somehow it pulled back and leaves me saying: yeah, that was ok. A film has never done this to me before. What trickery and wizardry did director [...]
The Cabin In The Woods (2012) | Review
Official Synopsis: Five friends go for a break at a remote cabin in the woods, where they get more than they bargained for. Together, they must discover the truth behind the cabin in the woods.
Having through a strange combination of reasons sat on a shelf for near three years, it was no surprise to see Cabin In The Woods finally get a theatrical release now, riding on the coat-tales of co-writer Joss Whedon’s publicity wave for upcoming big-budget movie, The […]

Tagline: If something is chasing you... split up.
Expecting the worst from this film from the outset, I have to say I was pleasantly surprised, and although the score I have given it is average it’s because of the change in pace to more light hearted and irreverent take on the typical rules of [...]
This Means War (2012) | Review
Official Synopsis: Two top CIA operatives wage an epic battle against one another after they discover they are dating the same woman.
With a premise akin to a mid-90’s comedy, it was surprising to see the likes of Tom Hardy anywhere near the movie – sadly that only serves to lead people into a false sense of expectation in terms of quality. Take two CIA super-agents in the […]

Tagline: It's SPY against SPY.
This film was never going to win any Oscars. However what it tried to do was bring together two hot men; one great hot new actor and Chris Pine. I think it is about time that us girls got a bit of eye candy. But disappointingly [...]
