Blu-ray Review: #TheNightManager

The Night Manager - Uncensored Edition is engrossingly dark elegance with a chocolate on the hotel bed. Review by Matt Cummings With all the talk about a replacement being sought for Daniel Craig as James Bond, Actor Tom Hiddleston was perhaps the last person anyone assumed would suddenly vault to the top of everyone's list. But that was before the BBC mini-series The Night Manager - Uncensored Edition , an engrossing, unconventionally dark free fall into the world of shady arms dealing. Its arrival on Blu-ray gives us a Zero Point to measure Hiddleston both Pre- and Post-Bond. For respected hotelier night manager Thomas Pine (Hiddleston), life revolves around assisting his well-to-do guests at a fashionable hotel in Egypt. But as a revolution sweeps through the country, Pine learns that an arms deal lead by the wealthy industrialist Richard Roper (Hugh Laurie) will attempt to circumvent any progress made by very violent means. Determined to help, Pine is e

Movie Review: 'Tomorrowland'

Disney's Tomorrowland is a mass-branding, incoherent bore. WARNING: Major spoilers ahead. Review by Matt Cummings A young person's mind is like a sponge, taking in anything and everything in an attempt to understand its world and (more importantly) its purpose. Children are wonderfully investigative, perhaps more so than parents would prefer on occasion. For a film like Disney's Tomorrowland , that love of information, imagination, and youthful exuberance should be proudly on display. Instead, it's a mass-branding, incoherent bore that few kids will stick around to finish. The disenfranchised scientist Frank Walker (George Clooney) was once a wide-eyed 10 year-old (Thomas Robinson), enthusiastically dreaming and building machines that he thought would improve his world. As a boy, Frank attends the 1964 New York World’s Fair and meets the British girl Athena (Raffey Cassidy), who gives him a pin that unlocks a magical, futuristic world. Parallel

Robocop Review. Lacks The Amoral Wit Of The Original

Robocop Review By: MattInRC Does Jose Padilha's Robocop do the franchise right, or just well enough? Read on to find out!  Warning: spoilers ahead. The future imagined by Director Paul Verhoeven during the 1980's and 90's is almost as frighteningly real compared to the one we really got. Science Fiction has become today's fact, but it's more intrusive than we'd like, living up to the promise of a far more dangerous than we had hoped; but it was these ideas and almost vicious bloodsport presented in 1987's Robocop which have defined a generation of Sci-Fi/action films. That random mega-violence - which has become such a part of these genres - generated a healthy bit of shock among those who first witnessed it, and might have overtaken the entire film had it not been for the career-defining performance of its titular lead, played by Peter Weller. Fast-forward 27 years, and Director Jose Padilha has resurrected the franchise with a good but
