Hulk (2003) 15th Anniversary Review

Not to be corny, but today marks the 15th anniversary of the not-so-jolly green giant’s big screen debut, Ang Lee’s underappreciated “Hulk”. It also probably marks at least ten years since I last watched it and I’d always considered it the lesser of the two Hulk movies but it really isn’t. Revisiting it now, at … Continue reading Hulk (2003) 15th Anniversary Review

The Avengers have been chasing down the remnants of Hydra and trying to locate and retrieve Loki’s staff.

Craggus’ Countdown To Infinity: The Avengers/ Avengers Assemble (2012)

When Loki appears in a SHIELD facility and steals the Tesseract, Nick Fury decides its time to mobilise the Avengers.

The Road To Ragnarok: The Incredible Hulk Returns (1988) Review

Way, way back before 2012’s “Avengers Assemble”, The Hulk and Thor came face to face in “The Incredible Hulk Returns”, the first in a trilogy of TV movies reviving the much-loved show. David Banner (Bill Bixby) has been living quietly, without the emergence of the Hulk, as Dr David Bannion, a research scientist at an … Continue reading The Road To Ragnarok: The Incredible Hulk Returns (1988) Review

Electric Boogaloo: The Wild, Untold Story Of Cannon Films (2015) Review

If “Electric Boogaloo: The Wild, Untold Story Of Cannon Films” weren’t a true story, it would be the craziest, most savage satire of Hollywood ever put on screen. Actually, the fact that it all actually happened just makes it satirical and hilariously bizarre. Mark Hartley’s bluntly honest documentary tracks the fortune of two cousins, Menahem Golan and … Continue reading Electric Boogaloo: The Wild, Untold Story Of Cannon Films (2015) Review

Sharknado 3: Oh Hell No! (2015) Review

Like a scab you just can’t help picking at, the so-bad-you-just-can’t-look-away franchise drops its third instalment with an admirable, if ill-deserved swagger; a selachian mic-drop of ludicrous proportions. When Fin Shepard (Ian Ziering) goes to Washington DC to collect the highest civilian honour from the President of the United States, the last thing he expects … Continue reading Sharknado 3: Oh Hell No! (2015) Review

Avengers: Age Of Ultron (2015) Review

It’s strange to think that it’s nearly been a year since we last visited the main Marvel Cinematic Universe. Sure, we had the awesome cosmic sidestep of “Guardians Of The Galaxy” but (for now) that remains distanced from the main action, here on Earth. Last time we met (some) of our heroes in “Captain America: The … Continue reading Avengers: Age Of Ultron (2015) Review
