Big Man Japan review at Loathed Film

Ah, Japan! A country I would love to visit. And apparently, every giant monster on the planet agrees with this sentiment as they all end up in Tokyo at some point. So what can Japan do about this? Why, it can electrocute a poor man until he grows to a size large enough to fight…

Dinosaurs 1 – Mammals 0

I promised Dinosaurs, didn’t I? I found an interesting article over on Science Daily. Researchers at Ohio University have run a study comparing the head-butting ability of many modern animals, as well as one of the classic Dinosaurs – Pachycephalosaurus. “Pachycephalosaur domes are weird structures not exactly like anything in modern animals. We wanted to…

VW Vader & Greenpeace Darkside Ads

Just a quick post this morning, to highlight a couple of Star Wars inspired adverts. Like me, you may have been entertained recently by the VW ad with the small child dressed up as Darth Vader? If you haven’t seen it, I’ve included it below. Well, Greenpeace have just subverted it somewhat, with their own…

Trailer for Disney/Pixar’s BRAVE

This just looks beautiful. It’s only a short teaser, so there’s not really much given away, but it has made me just a little bit excited! Considering the quality of RANGO earlier this year, and my lack of interest in CARS 2, Pixar needed to come up with something special. It looks like they have…

What was it? Science didn’t know…

A look at CREATURE FROM THE BLACK LAGOON. Whilst recently writing a review of the film (I’ll post a link when it’s published) it became apparent to me that there is a little more depth to this particular horror than perhaps it has been given credit for over the years. If you don’t know it,…

In the beginning…zzzz

So, I saw X-MEN: FIRST CLASS last week. It was enjoyable enough, despite a few flaws. However, there was one thing nagging at me throughout the film. I’m bored of origin stories. I understand that there are good ones, and great ones (BATMAN BEGINS and the recent STAR TREK reboot spring to mind), and that…

New Mass Effect 3 Trailer

There’s a new MASS EFFECT 3 Trailer out, and it looks pretty good… My only worry is that Bioware’s constant ‘streamlining’ of games may make this more of an action shooter, and that we’ll lose some of the depth and intrigue of the previous games. Still, I am very, very excited!
