New Transformers 4: Age of Extinction Trailer released!
It has been a while since that Superbowl teaser showed us our first look at Michael Bay’s fourth installment in the Transformers franchise, Age of Extinction.

G.I. Joe: Retaliation Review

G.I. Joe: Retaliation Review
Usually with movie sequels, one needs to watch the first film to understand the story so far and understand the progression into future films. G.I. Joe: Retaliation is not one of those movies. G.I. Joe: Retaliation isn’t a lot of things actually, but is it at least worth watching? Well, no. Not really. G.I. Joe: Retaliation is the sequel to 2009’s G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra. A lot of it feels like a sequel only in name, for about 90% of the...

The Changing Faces of Children’s Television

The Changing Faces of Children’s Television
      As a society, we have often see children’s television as not just a form of entertainment, but a kind of education in itself. The lessons that are taught in schools can often seem dull and dry to young people, so adding an exciting storyline often helps. Of course this does not detract from the fact that many cartoons are merely looking to sell something to the younger market, but despite this many children will be looking at their hand-drawn...

Review: Real Steel

Review: Real Steel
Before you read this review and/or see Dreamworks‘ Real Steel you need to do one thing. Forget every film that is mentioned as having being directed by Shawn Levy in the promotional campaign. Yes that means Cheaper By The Dozen, Night At The Museum and the 2006 remake of The Pink Panther which frankly, was terrible. Real Steel is Levy wanting to create a different machine; one that moves within its own near future universe where robotic pugilists...

Transformers: Dark of the Moon IMAX 3D movie review

Transformers: Dark of the Moon IMAX 3D movie review
IF YOU like an action film where you can leave your brain at the door then read on. If you prefer your action more intellectual, then go rent/buy Inception. It’s common knowledge that director Michael Bay doesn’t do smart films. In fact, he doesn’t even do movies with character development or any emotional centre. But he is outstanding when it comes to blowing stuff up, and he does this aplenty with his third instalment of the Transformers...
