The year is almost over. That’s good, because 2016 was a bit of a crap year, as many would agree. Refugees, elections, decisions, nothing seems to go the right way. However, there’s hope on the horizon. She sails on an outrigger canoe and her name is Moana. Or Vaiana in…
DC Comics’ latest publishing initiative DC Rebirth has picked up full steam and the last few stragglers from the New 52 are fizzling out. So let’s have a look at both the stories that are being told and how the publisher approaches them.
This year, the ZFF – Zurich Film Festival impressed most with not just the physical appearance of one actor but also two of his movies. His name is Daniel Radcliffe and the first movie we’re going to look at is Imperium.
Iron Man quits. Tony Stark has officially had it and he’s retiring as one oft he biggest heroes of the Marvel Universe. His replacement is a character nobody likes, neither in the real world nor in-universe. All the while there would be a great character waiting in limbo.
Few movies are as highly anticipated as Pixar’s, with good reason. And of all Pixar movies, Finding Dory may be the most highly anticipated one yet. That’s a lot of expectations to live up to.
Every now and then, there’s a movie that’s just the right kind of stupid. It’s just stupid enough to be completely daft and yet manages to a surprising amount of fun. Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows is that movie. That said, it is abysmally stupid.
When the good guys fail, the bad guys need to go save the world. If they don’t want to after trying bribery and threats, just implant them with a bomb and have them save the world. Enter the Suicide Squad, DC Comics’ latest movie. Is it good? Is it bad?…
Jason Bourne is my favourite action hero. He still is, even after what they did to him in the last movie.
The creators of Tarzan were faced with a very difficult task – taking a much beloved an old classic, and updating it from a children’s movie to a gritty blockbuster. They managed. Barely.
Ghostbusters. We’ve seen it. Here’s what we think of it. And let’s just say one thing: Sexism is the least of the movie’s problems.
Space, the final frontier…. Ah, who am I kidding? You know the drill. So let’s get into Star Trek Beyond and let’s bask in the glory that is James Tiberius Kirk and the crew of the Federation Starship Enterprise. Also, Idris Elba.
Bastille Day is probably one of the most overlooked movies this year. I’m glad I didn’t overlook it, because it’s one small step away from being one of my favourite thrillers.
Independence Day: Resurgence is a sequel of a movie that defined an entire genre. The first part in 1996 was the first of the movies that showed off large scale destruction helped with CGI. Two decades later, we get to find out if the concept still holds up.
The Ice Age series of films is almost as old as the CGI movie scene after it took off. The fifth entry in the series is called Ice Age: Collision Course and it hits Swiss cinemas in a few days. We’ve seen it. Squirrels and dick jokes. Seriously.
The first teaser for Moana, the upcoming animated movie by Disney is here! It’s also the time that we learn of the German title of the movie. And it speaks volumes at about how little the German distributor cares about the heritage the movie is entrenched in.
Pride and Prejudice and Zombies. Yes. That’s a thing. It’s by the same author who has written Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter, Seth Grahame-Smith. So one of these movies is good. The other one kind of isn’t. Which one? Read on to find out.
“Me Before You” follows the story of the young Louisa “Lou” Clark, played by Emilia Clarke, known from her breakthrough role as Daenerys Targaryen, Khaleesi of the Great Green Sea. In this movie, the cheerful and happy Lou becomes the caregiver for Will Traynor, played by Sam Claflin, known from his…
Tomorrow, Warcraft the movie hits Swiss cinemas. We’ve seen it so you don’t have to. Seriously, you’re not missing out unless you’re in it for one thing.
X-Men: Apocalypse. Where to begin? Seriously. Maybe with the sentence “Just when you thought they had it figured out”. So let’s get into one of the bigger messes I’ve seen this year and find out just where it went wrong… and what it did right.
