Mortal Kombat Movie – An Honest Review

Mortal Kombat Movie – An Honest Review

So far, the record of computer game-to-movie adaptations is dismal: Super Mario Bros, Double Dragon and Street Fighter were all knocked out of the ring before the opening weekend figures were in. Based on the most violently famous (or famously violent) game of all, Mortal Kombat Movie is, like its heroes, battling for the existence of its species. As if it wasn’t handicap enough, this also falls into the dreaded category of First American Movie…

Cardboard Gangsters Movie Review – well performed and superbly directed, but desperately needs a story with more invention

Cardboard Gangsters  Movie Review – well performed and superbly directed, but desperately needs a story with more invention

Four films in and director Mark O’Connor (Between The Canals, Stalker, King of the Travellers) has delivered the film he’s been threatening to, one that finally realises that early promise. Bursting with raw realism, Cardboard Gangsters full movie is a confident and visceral film. While O’Connor has yet to shed his early Scorsese influences (there’s a Raging Bull wall-punching moment), and this outing veers into an Irish Boyz In The Hood territory, this crime drama…

FrightFest 2017: Cult Of Chucky Full Movie Review – another series of gruesome murders committed by a wisecracking doll

FrightFest 2017: Cult Of Chucky Full Movie Review – another series of gruesome murders committed by a wisecracking doll

As the adage goes “Don’t fuck with the Chuck”, and the rule still applies. The frantic doll is up to no good (for a change) in Don Mancini’s Cult of Chucky full movie, a series relived from what’s left of the Child’s Play series and showing no signs of stepping down. Screenwriter Don Mancini first crafted Chucky, the child-sized doll possessed by a serial killer’s soul, for Tom Holland’s efficient horror film Child’s Play (1988). Mancini, who has given a hand…

MOVIE REVIEW: CARDBOARD GANGSTERS – great, violent, enjoyable crime drama

MOVIE REVIEW: CARDBOARD GANGSTERS – great, violent, enjoyable crime drama

Over the last few years that I’ve been doing this job of reviewing, braving the wind and the rain, the sleet and the snow, to make your lives better, I have seen a lot of films that are made in Ireland. I have always said that I cannot judge them any differently than those movies made outside my native land, in some ways I’m more anticipated of Irish movies than others, and judge them more…

Cult Of Chucky Movie Review – A sequel delivers a smooth, neat and gleeful charm

Cult Of Chucky Movie Review – A sequel delivers a smooth, neat and gleeful charm

The continuous creative control is in the hand of writer Don Mancini, who makes his comeback to helm this latest outing, is also key to their steady-but-low-key triumph. Cult Of Chucky full movie is a relatively straightforward continuation of the last movie’s story, but Mancini makes the next  entry look more assured than we intially had in mind. It might sound like a very silly thing to say, but the Child’s Play series has always stayed quite grounded. In…

Kung Fu Panda 2 full movie: A Pack of Entertaining Punches

Kung Fu Panda 2 full movie: A Pack of Entertaining Punches

Kung Fu Panda 2 full movie is exactly great as you’d expect, and it also offer more. The animation is elegant, the story is much more involving than the first movie, and there’s boundless energy throughout the movie. This sequel is not a dutiful retread of Kung Fu Panda 1 full movie but an ambitious extension, and that makes it better than its original. As the world of Kung Fu Panda extended, we finally get to…

21 Jump Street full movie Busts the Cliché of Cop Shown in Its Source Material

21 Jump Street full movie Busts the Cliché of Cop Shown in Its Source Material

Similar to the original television show, 21 Jump Street full movie has a gimmick of having real cops going undercover as high school students. Still, the movie has no purchase on the peppy, action-packed and yet safe-for-middle-America territory staked out by the series, and that make the movie kind of a mix between Parker Lewis’s Can’t Lose and The Commish in terms of tone. The directors has made a live-action movie that moves like a cartoon until around the…

Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs 2 full movie: Sometimes, Food Bites Back

Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs 2 full movie: Sometimes, Food Bites Back

The first Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs got a great success with $30 million back in September 2009 scoring the second-biggest September Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs 2 full movie debut of all time at that time and ending its leggy run with $124m. The movie is well-liked and there hasn’t been an animated movie that kids and parents could get excited about since Despicable Me 2. Aside from the goodwill leftover from the first movie,…

Movie Review: Salt (2010)

Movie Review: Salt (2010)

Salt movie 2010 is directed by Phillip Noyce (Patriot Games) and stars Angelina Jolie. That makes the movie locking my interest in regardless. I prefer Jolie in action mode and I prefer Noyce directing fast paced features. Unfortunately, I can’t offer anything more than faint praise for Salt full movie as it fumbles all over itself throughout and sputters out completely in the end. Tremendous moments of action seems to be well thought out individually, but none…

Dunkirk Full Movie 2017 Review: This is Christopher Nolan at the peak of his powers

Dunkirk Full Movie 2017 Review: This is Christopher Nolan at the peak of his powers

Dunkirk full movie is such a heart-hammering and heroically British movie. Christopher Nolan’s astonishing new movie, a retelling of the Allied evacuation of occupied France in 1940, is a work of heart-hammering intensity and grandeur that demands to be seen on the best and biggest screen within reach. Still, its spectacle doesn’t stop at the recreations of Second World War combat, and like all great movies about war, Dunkirk is every bit as transfixing up close. The…

Movie Review: Dunkirk – Bloodless, boring and empty work of Christopher Nolan left audiences cold

Movie Review: Dunkirk – Bloodless, boring and empty work of Christopher Nolan left audiences cold

Is it just me? Christopher Nolan’s Dunkirk movie has bowled over critics and taken $100m (£77m) at the global box office in barely a week, but it left me cold. The premise sounds tempting: the legend of Dunkirk movie tells of an array of unprepared civilians crafting an armada of fishing boats, pleasure craft, yachts, motor launches, paddle steamers, barges and lifeboats to save an army from a battle-swept beach. What might cinema reveal of the logistical skills, resourcefulness, courage, doubts, arguments and fears…

MOVIE REVIEW: CLOUDY WITH A CHANCE OF MEATBALLS 2 – Oddly Amazing Ride

MOVIE REVIEW: CLOUDY WITH A CHANCE OF MEATBALLS 2 – Oddly Amazing Ride

I adore Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs.  Phil Lord and Christopher Miller’s adaptation of the classic children’s book is one of the most unexpected and successful book adaptations of the past several years.  Most films based on children tales are belabored, boring stuffs, and Cloudy turned the simple idea of food falling from the sky into an odd, adorable, and fun animated comedy.  It set an incredibly high stake for Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs 2, but new directors Cody Cameron and Kris…

Picture of Beauty Movie Review – A nice surprise

Picture of Beauty Movie Review – A nice surprise

A voyeuristic, yet sensually suppressed painter commissioned by a Madam for her brothel. Two young friends discovering feelings for one another. Corrupt police officers and morally corrupt religious zealots. Arranged marriages. Appreciation for art. Gorgeous girls in period dresses… It’s almost like De Sade, Franco, Pasolini and Borowczyk are having a brain storm session wherever they winded up after death. Fine. That’s taking it a little bit too far, but I can safely claim as…

The Truman Show (1998) Movie Review

The Truman Show (1998) Movie Review

The Truman Show is a 24/24 reality TV show broadcasting every aspect of Truman Burbank’s life without him knowing about that. His entire life has been an unending soap opera for consumption by the rest of the world, and everyone he knows is really an actor paid to be part of his life. The Truman Show full movie is a welcome surprise as it’s the one of its own. Over the years, there have been many…
