From Page to Screen - Spider-Man (video)

After successful big screen adaptations of DC heavy hitters Superman and Batman in the 70s and 80s, Marvel turned their attention to striking back with a blockbuster version of one of their own hot properties: Spider-Man. The project languished in developmental hell for a few years before the success of X-MEN in 2000 seemingly got the ball rolling, with Sam Raimi attached to direct....

Movie Endings Explained - Inception (video)

Movie endings, they're usually pretty straight forward right? Everything pays off, the main characters learn something, and our heroes ride off into the sunset. Sometimes though, we don't get the typical ending from a movie, we get something much more nuanced, complex and open ended. The kind of endings that leave things up in the air for all of us to debate and theorise on...

Top 5 Movie Mistakes - Transformers (video)

With Michael Bay 's explosive (it was there, I took it) run directing the live action Transformers series seemingly coming to a close this year, as always on Top 5 Movie Mistakes, we look back. To the beginning of the hugely successful and heatedly discussed franchise, with 2007's TRANSFORMERS . While the most recent installment in the series looks to be showcasing potential...

From Page to Screen - Wonder Woman (video)

DC Comics characters have been appearing on the big screen since the 1970s, and through the many film versions of both Superman and Batman over the past few decades, we never saw Wonder Woman make an appearance. After over seventy five years of being a staple of the DC universe, Diana Prince was finally committed to live action movie history in BATMAN V SUPERMAN: DAWN OF JUSTICE . The...

Top 5 Movie Mistakes - Pirates of the Caribbean (video)

With the fifth and perhaps final installment of the highly lucrative PIRATES OF THE CARIBBEAN franchise hitting screens this month, we only thought it appropriate to look back to the original film that kicked it all off in this month's Top 5 Movie Mistakes! THE CURSE OF THE BLACK PEARL dropped in 2003, instantly cementing Captain Jack Sparrow as arguably Johnny Depp ' s...

From Page to Screen - Guardians of the Galaxy (video)

In 2014, Marvel Studios unleashed the film that seemed like the first real gamble in their freight train of superhero blockbusters, GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY . A space opera that features a talking raccoon and a humanoid tree as lead characters seemed like such an out there concept, it was only fitting that James Gunn ( SLITHER , SUPER ) was picked to direct it. Most of the skeptics...

Top 5 Movie Mistakes - The Fast and The Furious Series (video)

I don't think anyone could've predicted that THE FAST AND THE FURIOUS would grow into something as massive as it has become, when that original film first hit theaters in 2001. It was high octane, fun, likeable, but it hardly screamed big money franchise, especially not to the extent that the series has now reached. Typically movie franchises that run for as long as eight...

Top 5 Movie Mistakes - The Wolverine (video)

Now that we've seen the end of Hugh Jackman 's incredible nine film run as Wolverine in LOGAN , it's only natural that we look back and reflect on his memorable performances as everyone's favourite cigar chomping mutant. One of my personal favourites is 2013's THE WOLVERINE , also helmed by director James Mangold ( LOGAN , WALK THE LINE ) which took the...

Top 5 Movie Mistakes - John Wick (video)

JOHN WICK was a surprise hit in 2014, bringing Keanu Reeves ( THE MATRIX , SPEED ) back to his most successful roots in action films of the 90s. Starring as the titular character as a retired hitman lured back to his old lifestyle in a blood soaked, head shot filled journey of revenge, Keanu stepped back into the action star role effortlessly, and an acclaimed sequel JOHN WICK:...
