BETTE VS JOAN: DAWN OF FEUD

Produced by Ryan Murphy, who freaked us out many-a-time with American Horror Story, new FX mini-series Feud is a docudrama following Hollywood stars Joan Crawford (Jessica Lange) and Bette Davis’ (Susan Sarandon) intense encounter when filming iconic thriller What Ever Happened To Baby Jane? For fans of cinema and classic movies, Feud is something of a must-see curiosity, as not only is it dealing with two actresses who famously couldn’t stand each other as they made a particularly wacky cult flick but the Jessica Lange/Susan Sarandon duo in itself is pretty cool. The trailers primarily emphasized…

Deadpan humour meets dead folks and deadly stunts in a sequel that’s pretty damn lavish and glorious about its scale, world building and generous body count. The legendary Russian mob demolishing and puppy avenging hitman – John Wick – returns. Black suit, black boots and prodded by another wily shmuck to go back to his old ways again. How do you think this will end folks? John Wick: Chapter 2 is so hardcore, surreal and stunt crazy, it makes the entire world of Grand Theft Auto (GTA) look like Yoga Camp by comparison. John Wick’s…

THE LEGO BATMAN MOVIE : THE MOST FUN YOU HAVE HAD YET IN A BATMAN FILM

Who knew the dark knight’s super dark saga would make for the perfect delivery system for some lightheaded & ridiculously delightful gags? Let’s take a trip on the BAT-SIDE. Yes. My history with the caped dark is a long and emotional one. I love Batman. I also love Bacon …but that is unrelated to this review. Bacon Sandwiches with Mayo for the win (now that I could work with). Mustard in them. Yes, mustard is great too. Do you know what else is good? The Lego Batman Movie. But before we talk further on that… let…

Dames in Dresses in times of stresses. Watch Brad Pitt & Marion Cotillard up their ‘Bond’ game! What does Brad Pritt love to do on screen apart from grabbing some munchies between multiple lunchies? Well.. it’s give Tom Cruise a run for his money at playing the Spy Game. Who’s up for the set piece that is Breaking Brad : Unfinished Sandwich Edition? Forgive me as I digress. I love making fun of Brad Pitt. Now here’s an actor who only occasionally pushes the envelope but is often & most decidedly playing himself. I was…

Move over Gandalf – thy beard was pretty weird. Step away Dumbledore – oh wait, you died. Percy Jackson, you ain’t seen shit. Jon Snow? You slobbering fool. Doctor Strange is here to take your fool asses to school! Alright, let’s be fair. We all know that Jon Snow doesn’t belong in this list but he needs to crawl back into the snow if he mopes around anymore. I’m sick of Jon Snow’s bearded and worried mug across my TV Screen. This has nothing to do with the below review. But I just felt like…

NEIL GAIMAN WANTS YOU TO DREAM DANGEROUSLY IN NEW DOCUMENTARY

Signing your name in a book is usually not a health hazard, unless you are Neil Gaiman, one of the world’s best-known fantasy authors, who did it at least 150,000 times, plus dedications, without a break over 90 days in the U.S. and U.K. True to his rock star persona, Neil Gaiman does not merely fade into the night before retiring as a public figure. Instead, he embarked on a whirlwind farewell book-signing tour, as poignantly documented in “Neil Gaiman: Dream Dangerously. ” Emily Haines of Metric once sang about why we shouldn’t meet our heroes…

Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children plays like a ‘Best of Hits’ Platinum Album of Hollywood’s favourite and sometimes disturbingly repetitive goth-fanboy auteur – Tim Burton. Tim Burton: lover of blue hues, skeletons, white face paint and gorgeous bleak surroundings is back with a tale that’s as magical as it’s well ‘Burtonesque’. Tim Burton is to goth aesthetics what Tom Cruise is to missions involving saving the planet. Never before has there been a more snug fit of the director and the material he is playing with. I can only imagine how many sleepless nights of…

BATMAN: THE KILLING JOKE IS NO LAUGHING MATTER

After successfully adapting Frank Miller’s The Dark Knight Returns in a thrilling animated two-parter, DC soon turned its attention to another iconic Batman graphic novel, Alan Moore’s Batman: The Killing Joke. With both Kevin Conroy and Mark Hamill returning to voice-acting duties as Batman and The Joker respectively, comic-book fans instantly looked forward to this new adaptation. But The Killing Joke being a much darker Batman tale with Joker at his most diabolical, Commissioner Gordon very nearly losing his mind and Batgirl (in)famously being shot and paralysed by the villainous clown with Batman ultimately finding…

OH MY GODZILA! Trust the Japanese to infuse love, painstaking detail and rocket fuel into the legendary Kaiju Godzilla franchise that our American friends have been buggering up time and time again. In true return to daddy fashion, the Shin Godzilla narrative is firm and dives deep into disaster management zone like few films ever have! There is something deeply cathartic about watching a giant monster stomp and roar its way through an urban jungle and wreck a king’s portion worth of horror and real estate damage that would even have Rolland Emmerich and Michael…
