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.
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?…
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.
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.
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.
After the events in Sokovia, The Avengers suddenly find themselves in the spotlight not as heroes but as vigilantes with no regard for life or property. Out of this, viewers get Captain America: Civil War. Which side are you on?
The Jungle Book is one of my favourite Disney movies. So of course I was among the first in line to buy a ticket when the Jon Favreau directed live action adaptation was slated at Kitag’s site. Going in, I was excited. Coming out, I am very confused.
Horror is a difficult genre, especially in this day and age. Speculations as to why they don’t make them like they used to are a constant topic of debate. Now there’s 10 Cloverfield Lane, fuelling the discussion once more.
Today, I’m proud to be a Superman fan. Today, I’m proud to be a Batman fan. Today, I’m a fan of Wonder Woman for the first time. Today is the day I saw Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice
I love Arrow. For the first time in maybe forever, Green Arrow aka Oliver Queen is relevant to a larger audience. But the CW’s hit show has its downsides. Not just in the context of the show, but in the context of the comic books that Ollie’s adventures are loosely…
The military is currently an unpopular topic in fiction. Usually, members of armed forces are the bad guys whenever they pop up. Not in Linda Nagata’s The Red trilogy. But does it make for good and engaging books? Find out!
