 Transformers Revenge of the Fallen

When Michael Bay’s Transformers was released in 2007 it was met with much criticism from Transformers fans and film critics alike. It was overly long, had a series of obvious plot devices, relied too much on poor humour, the action scenes were cut too...

There are few good sports films that aren’t riddled with clichés and there are even fewer good films about skiing. Downhill Racer (1969) is one of those rare exceptions. Based on Oakley Hill’s 1963 novel, The Downhill Racers, Paramount Pictures optioned...

 Year One

There’s something about a Jack Black movie that very few other films can capture. The man is either a comedy genius, or he’s a subject or great intrigue. Even when he’s not trying to be funny, his face, his mannerisms, even his body seems to scream...

 Columbia Pictures Film Noir Classics: Volume 1

Film noir is a tricky genre to get a handle on. Film critics and historians argue endlessly about how to define it but they certainly know one when they see it. Classic film noir typically is set in an urban environment – rainy nights, shadowy alleyways...
