Posted in Movies, News with tags , , , , , , , , on September 15, 2012 by Bjorn Grainger

Jose Padilha’s RoboCop has been beset by problems from the outset. The script leaked to an entitled fanboy who then proceeded to tear the film apart. There are rumours of unrest between Padilha and the execs, with Padhila having to fight for every scene he wants in the movie. Still, as Dredd as recently shown, these adversities can be overcome and decent movie made, so let’s not be a complete Debbie Downer on the whole situation, eh? Anyway, the first pics of the new Robo-suit have made their way onto the net. Wanna check them out? Continue reading

At best you ignore them, deny they ever existed. At worst, they kill off all the enjoyment you had in the series. The Dark Knight Rises is Christopher Nolan’s final part in his Dark Knight trilogy. Will Nolan give us the ending we want? Will Batman get the send off he deserves? Read on and find out. Continue reading

It was a long wait (over four months) but last week we finally got the third and final The Dark Knight Rises trailer. In comparison to the all-encompassing media blitz that accompanied Marvel’s The Avengers, The Dark Knight Rises marketing has been relatively restrained and sedate. This must be down to the quiet confidence Warner Bros. have in Christopher Nolan and the final part in the Dark Knight trilogy.

Sure, we’ve had rumours of Chris Nolan showing a rough cut of the film to studio execs, and what we thought was the beginning of a viral campaign, but nothing of any real note since. So, in this dearth of information, it makes the release of a new synopsis for the movie all the more significant – Continue reading

It’s a funny thing, spying, isn’t it? We entrust our national security to those who, by their very nature, must be duplicitous and backstabbing. Yes, those people who keep our secrets are the very ones we want to keep them safe from. Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy takes us deep into this murky world of Cold War espionage and the search for a double agent at the heart of MI6. But is it any good? Continue reading
