It’s official! The Rock is the resurrector of sequels. We watched him find his power in Journey 2: The Mysterious Island. In Fast Five we saw how impressive his force could be. And now, in G.I. Joe:Retaliation, we get to witness the potency of his command. For do not be mistaken, ladies and gentleman, this is the Rock’s show and he rules with a mighty fist.
The Rock and Bruce Willis. Fighting evil. Together. We’re so, so on board with this.
Paul WS Anderson has committed the greatest act of cultural rape since Stephenie Meyer thought “Whitby and dogs are all very well, but none of it’s really sparkly enough…”. The Three Musketeers is plagiarised from so many disparate sources that I can scarcely keep up with them – unfortunately, however, Alexandre Dumas’ classic romance isn’t among them. This film is unforgivable.
This summer, you can hardly move for superhero films – and Green Lantern aside, we’ve seen most of the stars before. All the classic heroes have had a fair few outings with different faces by now, and if there’s one thing we hate about competition it’s not knowing who’s the WINNER. Feel like arbitrarily deciding whether Michael Keaton’s better at being grumpy than Christian Bale? Good.
Paul WS Anderson has finally cast his new 3D interpretation of The Three Musketeers, mere days after Doug Liman officially signed on to direct the Warner Bros take on the same story. Still, why have two different films, when you can have two films with exactly the same plot? Erm… yeah.
Well, pretty much. Lately, it seems like you can’t go two minutes without some Hollywood star-or-other announcing they’re set to appear in Thor, the upcoming film of the popular Marvel strip. With with so many names being bandied about we thought it was high time someone sat down and collated all the info together.
With millions of kids around the world getting a taste for blood, there’s never been a better time for vampiric stories to be transferred to the big screen. However, we can’t help feeling that with confusing storytelling and lack of energy, this one lacks bite.
