Spider-Man, Spider-Man, does whatever a spider can (apart from pose for photos because he’s suddenly too shy to do that even though he’ll gladly spend thirty minutes breakdancing to the music pumping out of the t-shirt stall).

I took my son to Fan Expo, and this is the only shot I have of him fully masked before the (possibly cosplay-related) shyness took hold and all he wanted to do was play in the amazing Lego section. Although, to be fair,who can blame him.

Day Three!

Review: Transcendence

Posted by Matthew on April 19, 2014
Film Review / No Comments

Transcendence Johnny Depp

Transcendence is the directorial debut of Wall Pfister, a great cinematographer who has worked with many great directors but who is probably best known for working with Christopher Nolan on every one of his films. He’s been nominated for Academy Awards four times: 2005, 2006, 2008, and a win in 2010 for Inception. I’m telling you all this because I think Wally Pfister is a great cinematographer who has done great work on great movies. The problem is that these facts don’t seem have translated into him being a great director.

Review: The Raid 2: Berendal

The Raid 2: Berendal

Those of you who saw The Raid: Redemption probably don’t remember much beyond the crazy fight scenes and there’s a reason for that: the movie didn’t have a lot beyond the fight scenes. The set up was pretty much as simple as it could have been for the good guys and the bad guys to clash and they did. Man, did they ever.

The Raid 2: Berendal seeks to out do it’s predecessor in two ways: the fights are more extreme (although not by much) and the story has quite a bit more scope. Does it succeed? Not entirely. Does it matter? No, because while the story is probably a little too convoluted the fight scenes are among the best I’ve ever seen.

Review: Draft Day

Draft Day

Sports movies often have a bit of a stigma in that if you make a football movie then while football fans will probably want to see it there’s no guarantee that anyone else will. The best sports movies get around this by doing something pretty clever: not really being about sports.

Draft Day is one of these. It’s a well put together drama with a great cast doing what they do best in a movie that happens to be set in the office of an NFL football team.
