RoboCop (2014) Review
The reboot of RoboCop is not bad, it’s actually pretty good. And nobody is more surprised than me. The acting was good, the characters are interesting, the dialogue was for the most part good, and Samuel L. Jackson had me in stitches. The science fiction is interesting, focusing on a very topical plot point of the use of Drones; I thought the idea of the near future predicted here isn’t all too insane. The new and old takes from the first film work, like the Omnicorp having a marketing guy keeping polls on social media, Jay Baruchel was a good choice for that role. I’ll go into much more detail below but for now bookmark this if you are waiting to see the film, if you have seen the film then check out the spoiler sections and I will look forward to hearing everyone’s thoughts.

Mini Trailer Reviews
Trailers appear to be coming out of the woodwork recently so I thought I would review a few of them all in one post because 1 I am lazy and 2 its Christmas time so I am busy. I am afraid there will be no teaser trailers so don’t look for the Godzilla, Interstellar, or Planet of the Apes in this post, I liked all three but without more content I really can’t pass my judgement’s. Hope you enjoy the mini reviews and I will get back to the full ones after the holidays. Enjoy the reviews and please tell me your initial reactions to these new trailers, more so if you disagree.
This is the End (2013) Review
I had no real anticipation going into this film, the trailer was alright and whilst the reviews where mostly good I still didn’t feel it was for me. I couldn’t have been more wrong, this film was truly hysterical and I am not sure if it was the lack of good comedy films this year or that my expectations were particularly low but I loved. I couldn’t believe how funny this film was and how much I laughed. The cast were great, the visuals weren’t bad, the dialogue and humour is right on the money, and even the story moved along really well. I would recommend this film to anyone who liked Pineapple Express and Superbad. I’ll go into much more detail below but for now bookmark this if you are waiting to see the film, leave any comments below, if you have seen the film then check out the spoiler sections and I will look forward to hearing everyone’s thoughts.
Jay Baruchel: The power of Christ compels you.
Jonah Hill: Does it Jay?
Jay Baruchel: The power of Christ compels you!
Jonah Hill: Is the power of Christ compelling me Jay? Guess what? It’s not that compelling.
Box Office Predictions (14-16th June) Results
Second week of predictions and the results are a little more in my ballpark. I even had more readers comment on the prediction and a few made their own, but who was closer? Well if you continue to the rest of this post you’ll find out. I know everyone is fixed on knowing the big releases scores this weekend but we can’t forget about the returning films of which one showed some shocking results. I also want to thank everyone for the likes and comments on my review of Man of Steel, of which beat my previous comment record with over 90 comments.
Box Office Predictions (14-16th June)
Second week of predictions isn’t going to be any easier with two wide releases which to say the least are wild cards. To be honest I like them that way because it’s more fun with making the predictions. I don’t see any returning films making a challenge to the new comers but you never know. One way or another this weekend should be fun to watch both in the cinema and on the figures. MAN OF STEEL!!! Go Watch it now!
Top Ten Kids Films of 2000-2010 Part 2
Were back to the top ten’s and this could be the last of 2000-2010, so let me make it a good one. Kid’s films, mainly animations which let’s face it are the best. So many films missed the cut off date, for example A Bug’s Life (1998), Tarzan (1999), The Iron Giant (1999) and Toy Story 2 (1999). Good year for kids films, but I am unwilling to change the almighty rules of the top ten. For I have spoken my gibberish! Ok so if you didn’t see the part 1 go do that and vote for favorite film from part 1, then in part 2 which you are reading now do the same, then after a while I will post the results.
Goon (2012) Review
I don’t know where to start with this film, it’s funny but with a kind of heart felt performance. It’s the best character I have seen Seann William Scott perform. It is funny but also crude and coupled with brutal violence, this doesn’t bother me so I liked it. Super strange film to review.
