Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter Review

Well. Not really sure what to say here. I mean. This is. Well. It’s…um…well it’s an interesting take on history! Timur Bekmambetov takes directing duties with a screenplay by Seth Grahame-Smith, who wrote Dark Shadows and is writing Beetlejuice 2 (FFS!).

Frankenweenie Movie Review

Tim Burton is back once again on animation duties with this tale of a young boy who brings back his dog from the dead. That’s pretty much the story right there really.

The best way…Read more Rock of Ages Review – Pleeeassse Stop, The Music

Safety Not Guaranteed Movie Review

I hadn’t heard much about this film, in fact I’d heard nothing, which is a shame as it’s a really good. The plot is simple; a magazine (Seattle Magazine) is looking for news stories and one of the writers spots an advert asking for a partner to go back in time, he takes a couple…Read more Safety Not Guaranteed Movie Review
