Olivia Munn to play Psylocke in X-Men: Apocalypse
Bryan Singer’s X-Men: Apocalypse is certainly gathering steam. The hotly anticipated sequel to last year’s Days of Future Past, X-Men: Apocalypse seeks to turn yet another iconic X-Men storyline into a high-stakes, big-budget movie. Much like all films before it, X-Men: Apocalypse seems to be amassing even more of an ensemble of actors to play the brilliant catalogue of heroes and villains in the comic series’ roster. The latest,...

Fast & Furious 7 review

Fast & Furious 7 review
The Fast and the Furious franchise is a film series that has gone through the strangest evolution. From a range of films that started as guilty pleasures in a generation of films like Torque – where illegal street races, souped-up vehicles, and the ever-present “NOS” to give that extra speed-boost were the norm – the Fast & Furious movies have since grown to be legitimately impressive films that have shaped the fun side... 

“Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2” Will Have Casey Jones, Played by “Arrow” Star Stephen Amell

“Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2” Will Have Casey Jones, Played by “Arrow” Star Stephen Amell
And that is just fantastic sounding news. While 2014’s Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles didn’t exactly make for a brilliant installment of the Turtles franchise, it certainly still made bank at the box office. A fair few things worked for it, a fair few things didn’t, but probably the most criminal exclusion from the film – other than Bebop and Rocksteady – is the lack of Casey Jones. A fan-favourite character, Casey Jones...

Chappie (2015) Review

Chappie (2015) Review
Neill Blomkamp first hit the big screen after a bunch of interesting short films with District 9 – a science-fiction film that had a much smaller scope in a location that wasn’t the United States for a change, yet could still deliver wonderful special effects and impactful action. He followed that groundbreaking film with Elysium, a general disappointment of a flick despite some stellar trailers. Now he brings us this: Chappie. In what...

Doctor Who Series 8 Christmas Special Review: Last Christmas

Doctor Who Series 8 Christmas Special Review: Last Christmas
Another Christmas means another British TV tradition: The Doctor Who Christmas Special. Whereas some may watch movies like Elf or Miracle on 34th Street or Die Hard, there’s always something for the Whovians – a very special hour of Doctor Who. Usually written by Steven Moffat. This year is no different. The Doctor (Peter Capaldi) is different this December 25th, but it’s still the tenth in the string of Doctor Who Christmas Specials...
