Yabba Dabba Doo! Live Action Film Reboot of The Flintstones
Over 40 years since The Flintstones graced television screens in all its non-technicolour glory, it was announced this week that a live-action film reboot may be heading to our cinema screens in the near future.  For the uninitiated, the Hanna-Barbera original animation of The Flintstones told the oft-comedic story of working-class everyman Fred Flintstone and his family, consisting of his wife Wilma and their daughter Pebbles.

Disney announce The Descendants, a new twist on classic characters

Disney announce The Descendants, a new twist on classic characters
With series such as Once Upon A Time and Grimm proving to studios that audiences have an appetite for new versions and spin-offs of their favourite characters, it was not long before studio executives commissioned another one of these projects to hit our screens. However, leave it to Disney to make an interesting move by having the project targeted at a younger/family audience (as opposed to having it on their more adult-centric ABC channel) on the... 

Space Battleship Yamato Review

Space Battleship Yamato Review
Space Battleship Yamato is a two hour long, live action space epic based on the fantastic 1970s anime series of the same name. Pulling in a big production budget for any Japanese film, it completely excels in achieving its large scope vision of a beautifully detailed space adventure, but does suffer in a couple of points from its condensed running time compared to the anime and its less than perfect casting of one of the leads. Around 200 years in...

It’s safe to say that within the last few years live action shorts (such as Assassin’s...

18-minute Sonic The Hedgehog Fan-Film released online
Fan-films are a curious thing. Sometimes you can find a really good one, such as any of the video game-related films YouTubers such as FreddieW and CorridorDigital make, or you can find really bad ones by filmmakers who still have a thing or two to learn. The most recent fan-film to hit the Internet is that from Blue Core Studios, who some might know as the people behind the Mega Man fan-film that was released some time ago. More recently they have... 

Rurouni Kenshin: Live action movie release

Rurouni Kenshin: Live action movie release
Nobuhiro Watsuki had a beautiful way of writing and illustrating his historical fiction story. Released in the Weekly Shonen Jump magazines in 1994, the story of Himura Kenshin; the wandering samurai who attempts to atone for his murderous past, stands as one of the best Manga and Anime shows during the turn of the millennium. So to think that even now there are new ways in which we can see Kenshin and co is a testament to the great success of Watsuki’s...
