Dark Skies had so much potential to be a truly terrifying invasion film but, thanks to the stilted dialogue, cliched lines and unimaginative alien, it has fallen short of “out of this world” and become a semi-enjoyable (yet ultimately forgettable) popcorn flick instead…
For most of us, Stephanie Meyer is the devil incarnate. She took what was a perfectly good supernatural baddie and turned him in to a bedazzled, love-sick vegetarian for heavens sake! But, as with all evil geniuses, this one blasphemy was not enough. She has now turned her sights towards the time-honored tradition of alien invasion, turning it from an integral battle for human survival to just another run-of-the-mill, lame love triangle. Really, is nothing held as sacred anymore?!
New trailer for The Host is proof that only Twilight fans will enjoy it.
Surrounded by two hunky potential lovers? Better take a prophylactic course of antibiotics, Saoirse Ronan…
The déjà vu is strong with this one.
London’s seventh annual Korean Film Festival is in full swing! Running until November 11th, it’s a rare showcase of popular Korean filmmaking, offering an insight into a culture as in love with pop music, fashion and Hollywood as our own. Bringing over the cream of a remarkably strong national cinema, the KFF continues to expose audiences to a fascinating dichotomy of the alien and familiar, as all the tried and true tropes of genre cinema are played out in a foreign language.
Sparkly aliens this time!
OH JUST GIVE UP
No vampires or werewolves, but girl-on-girl fighting and lots of angst. Guess who?
First R-Patz, now this. Dammit, Stephenie Meyer, leave our actors alone!
