The Accountant Trailer


Ben Affleck is cast as Christian Wolff in this new action thriller film The Accountant. An extraordinary man with highly advanced cognitive skills that allow him to think on a different level to that of a standard human, more in line with the likes of Picasso and Einstein. He works as a freelance accountant for some of the world's most dangerous criminal organisations from the cover of a CPA office in a small town. He has two sides to his job one being an accountant and the other being a sleeping assassin, a job that when required to do so will see him perform extraordinary measures.

Pompeii Review


Good

Like an ancient Roman version of 2012, this disaster epic is a pure guilty pleasure, sparking plenty of laughter along with the massive effects-based carnage. It also helps that the screen is packed with muscle men in skimpy skirts. The actors dive in with gusto, adding plenty of personality to the ridiculous dialogue, while director Paul W.S. Anderson shamelessly ramps up the action mayhem.

It begins in AD 79 Britain, where Roman Senator Corvus (Kiefer Sutherland) is on the rampage, slaughtering the entire Celtic community of young Milo (Kit Harington), who is taken to Londinium to become a gladiator. When he rises to fame, he's transferred to Pompeii, where he immediately catches the eye of young noblewoman Cassia (Emily Browning), much to the scowly disapproval of her politically active parents (Carrie-Anne Moss and Jared Harris). An outsider among the local slaves, Milo is befriended by tough guy fellow gladiator Atticus (Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje). And when Corvus comes to town to claim Cassia as his bride, Milo decides to take a dangerous stand for both revenge and the girl. Meanwhile, Mount Vesuvius is rumbling, getting ready to unleash plenty of movie-style havoc.

It's impossible to watch this without thinking of the cheesy, similarly styled TV series Rome or Spartacus, with their corny melodramas, excessive violence and bare flesh. Even though this is on a much bigger scale with seriously enormous 3D special effects, it's just as cheesy. And equally entertaining as well. Harington is terrific as the hunky hero, building much stronger chemistry with the honourable Akinnuoye-Agbaje than the distressed Browning. And seasoned veterans like Harris, Moss and Sutherland clearly have a great time chomping madly on the scenery as Pompeii burns.

That Awkward Moment Review


Weak

Even a strongly likeable cast can't breathe life into this ill-conceived film, which poses as a sex comedy but is ultimately timid and sappy. The premise is intriguing enough to catch our interest, but it ends up being three badly written romantic-comedies woven together in a way that makes them neither romantic nor comedic.

The story strands centre on three best buddies enjoying their late-20s in New York. Jason (Efron) is the womaniser, breaking up the moment any girl begins to get serious. Daniel (Teller) is the clown, using humour to find women, usually with the help of his friend Chelsea (Davis). And Mikey (Jordan) is the responsible one, a medical doctor happily married to Vera (Lucas). Except that she leaves him, prompting Jason and Daniel to promise to stay single with him in solidarity. Then instantly, each of them finds himself in a relationship: Jason falls for wild-girl Ellie (Poots), Daniel realises that he's in love with Chelsea, and Mikey secretly tries to get Vera back.

The problem is that there's very little chemistry between any of the characters. Not only are the love stories strained and implausible, but the bromance never even gets off the ground because filmmaker Gormican is clearly terrified of any kind of male affection. He's also not very good at depicting sexuality, with only a couple of scenes played for comedy value. In fact, all of the film's sharp edges have been surgically removed, leaving only the illusion of gross-out humour.

Pompeii Trailer


After being enslaved, Milo is made into a gladiator with indomitable strength. He is forced to compete in various games to fight to the death for the entertainment of the people of Pompeii. However, he faces new threats when he falls in love with Cassia, the daughter of an extremely wealthy  and powerful man, who is pushed into engagement with a barbaric Roman Senator. Not only that, but everyone faces a disaster of gargantuan proportions when fearsome volcano Mount Vesuvius erupts, engulfing the city in a cloud of smoke and showering it with boiling lava and scorching rock. Milo sets out to rescue his beloved Cassia as the city begins to tremble and crumble away, but just how invincible is he now?

This epic action adventure is set in 79 AD, Rome and is a timeless story of the power of love in the face of ultimate adversity. It has been directed by Paul W.S. Anderson ('Resident Evil', 'AVP: Alien  vs. Predator', 'Death Race') and among writing credits are Janet Scott Batchler and Lee Batchler ('Batman Forever'), Julian Fellowes ('Downton Abbey') and Michael Robert Johnson ('Sherlock Holmes'). 

'Pompeii' will explode onto cinema screens in the UK soon on February 21st 2014.

That Awkward Moment Trailer


If there's no clear cut message between two people who like other, nobody knows where they stand, what to say or when to call. Jason, Daniel and Mikey go through just that when all three find themselves with girlfriends that they aren't quite sure are really girlfriends. None of them are planning on settling into a relationship, especially since Mikey has only just come out of one, but things take an unforeseen turn when Jason meets Ellie who he wants to spend all of his time with and finds himself being accused of having a girlfriend. Pretty soon though, Daniel also finds his feelings are deepening for Chelsea and Mikey still has a lot of emotions to overcome. Even when their love lives start becoming less complicated, they find themselves struggling to adapt to monogamous lives.

This romantic comedy deals with the all too real circumstances of fledgling love. It has been directed and written by Tom Gormican (co-producer of 'Movie 43') in his directorial and screenwriting debut, and production was undertaken by Scott Aversano ('School of Rock', 'Killers'), Justin Nappi ('All Is Lost'), Andrew O'Connor ('Peep Show') and Kevin Turen. 'That Awkward Moment' is set to be released in the UK on January 31st 2014.

Evil Dead Review


Very Good

Remaking an iconic classic is dangerous business, even if the original filmmakers are on board as producers, but at least Uruguayan writer-director Alvarez has a few clever ideas up his sleeve. And a willingness to go gleefully over-the-top with the grisliness. But aside from a few gimmicky jolts, the film is never actually scary.

There are essentially only five characters in the story, which gives the actors a chance to find entertaining details along the way. Mia (Levy) is a drug addict whose three best friends (Lucas, Pucci and Blackmore) take her to her family's creaky old cabin in the woods to go cold turkey. They're joined by Mia's aloof brother David (Fernandez). But none of them know that locals have used the basement for a sinister ritual, and they left a creepy book behind that supposedly has the power to summon a vicious demon who wants to possess them all. So is Mia's freaky behaviour because of her withdrawal, or has something evil got hold of her?

This twist is rather clever, as it adds a level of mordant wit to the film, giving texture to the relationships between these five young people who we fully expect will begin to die horribly nasty deaths one by one. Indeed, what follows is an escalating series of blood-soaked set-pieces involving dismemberment and death at the sharp edge of any implement on hand.

Evil Dead Trailer


When Mia, her brother and three friends vacate to an isolated cabin in the woods, they unwittingly discover a book labelled 'Leave This Book Alone' tightly bound up. It turns out to be a Book of the Dead which one of them reads a part of and subsequently rouses some dark and murderous demons intent on possessing the group and leading them to their doom. It doesn't take the spirit long to take over the youngsters as they fight in vain to survive until only one of them is left to desperately find an escape. 

The evil returns in this exciting remake of the 1981 cult horror 'The Evil Dead'. It is directed and written by Fede Alvarez in his debut feature length film with screenplay contributions from Diablo Cody ('Juno', 'Jennifer's Body') and Rodo Sayagues Mendez in his first feature. Production credits include the one and only Sam Raimi himself who created the original movie, along with the original main star and executive producer Bruce Campbell. 'Evil Dead' the 2013 edition is set to be even more spine-chilling than ever as the fourth instalment of the Evil Dead franchise. It is scheduled for release in the UK on April 19th 2013.

Sam Raimi Goes In Hard With Evil Dead Remake Trailer


Sam Raimi Bruce Campbell Diablo Cody Jane Levy Jessica Lucas Lou Taylor Pucci

Sam Raimi and his production team have gone in hard with the trailer for the Evil Dead remake.

Branded for mature audiences only, there are moments in this teaser that are so gory, they leave you wondering what hell they’ve put in the rest of the movie. This remake of Raimi’s classic 1981 movie starring Bruce Campbell was initially met with a degree of pessimism from horror purists but he’s back on board, with Sam Raimi and indie movie darling Diablo Cody both claiming a writing credit for the remake and with Fede Alvarez in the director’s seat, they appear to have taken no prisoners with this resurrection and the trailer alone is sure to silence the cynics.

2013’s Evil Dead stars Jane Levy as Mia. Shiloh Fernadez, Jessica Lucas, Lou Taylor Pucci and Elizabeth Blackmore all join her onscreen, as does Bruce Campbell himself, albeit briefly. Campbell, of course, is a huge part of the success of the original 1980s movies, so it’s a relief to see him on production duties here as well.

Big Mommas: Like Father, Like Son Review


Bad
It's astonishing that there's a third film in this deeply unfunny series (I skipped Part 2). But at least it's undemanding to watch, with its by-the-numbers plot, paper-thin characters and cheesy sentimentality.

After witnessing a murder, FBI agent Malcolm (Lawrence) takes his 17-year-old rapper-wannabe son Trent (Jackson) undercover with him: Malcolm again becomes Big Momma, while Trent enrols in a girls' performing arts school as Charmaine.

While Malcolm plays housemother while seeking evidence needed to lock up the Russian killer (Curran), Trent hangs with the girls, falling for a musician Haley (Lucas). And the school maintenance man (Love) falls for Momma.

The Covenant Review


Terrible
If nothing else, The Covenant is a testament to successful -- albeit misleading -- advertising. From the trailers, The Covenant looks like a sexy supernatural thriller, a cross between The Craft and The Lost Boys, about four attractive young men -- born from a family of witches -- with extraordinary powers, who must confront an ancient rival right before their 18th birthday. Pretty cool, huh?

Upon father investigation, we learn the MPAA rated The Covenant PG-13 for "intense sequences of violence and action, some disturbing images, sexual content, partial nudity and language." What more can you ask for in a guilty pleasure? With alleged intense action, sex appeal, and supernatural qualities, The Covenant just has to be a treat for the senses--right?
