Muppets Most Wanted

Muppets Most Wanted

(2014)
15 days ago via Flixster

Beginning with a riff on the nature of sequels and following with (another) reinvention in its series - MUPPETS MOST WANTED brings a fun silliness and sly irreverence that only this cast of felt characters can deliver.

Hercules

Hercules

(2014)
23 days ago via Flixster

"The untold story of Hercules", as the marketing tagline for this modern take surmises, is the story that should have remained untold. HERCULES (2014) is, at its foundation, a re-imagining of the fabled hero with a question-mark over his godliness. The result instead is an exclamation mark over the need for this godliness to have the character stand uniquely. Instead here, he is fashioned as an unmemorable mercenary leader in an unexciting, unmemorable film.

Need For Speed

Need For Speed

(2014)
23 days ago via Flixster

Heightened absurdity bordering on overtaking its rival film franchise, NEED FOR SPEED sacrifices any real depth of character and story for an adrenal shot of basic revenge. Yet, for all its faults, there is something about the film, lying underneath, that makes it strangely magnetic. It may be Aaron Paul's stand-out performance against a stilted ensemble, or the brilliant cinematography on display. Regardless, NEED FOR SPEED is a bad film that progressively reaches a goal of becoming enjoyable.

Guardians of the Galaxy

Guardians of the Galaxy

(2014)
23 days ago via Flixster

Balancing bright visuals, fiery characters, enthralling set-pieces and interjections of snappy humour - GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY is pure cinematic pleasure and a true example of original tonality.
