Movie Night: Yor, The Hunter From The Future (1983)
What can one say about Yor? This is classic B-Movie, 80’s cheese and if you like these kinds of films then as far as I’m concerned, any discussion of Yor has to start with the director. Listed in the credits as Anthony M. Dawson, this is really an American... Read more

Turd’s Review of Star Whores: The Farce Awakens – How JJ Abrams conned the fanboys and made a mint

The Force Awakens continues to divide the audience!

(…)TFA is the apotheosis of Abrams’ career to date, in the most negative sense possible. In the words of a character from The Usual Suspects, “the greatest trick the devil ever pulled was making us believe he didn’t exist.” Abrams IS that devil and has delivered a terrible Star Wars movie – nay, terrible movie, period (…)

Maze Runner: The Scorch Trials (2015) Movie Review

“Instead of focusing on the key qualities that made the book so riveting to read, like the character dynamics and the mystery elements, the filmmakers give us a safe-zone treadmill-routine with lots of running, screaming and visually chaotic action sequences that are so incoherent it hurts.” – Mathias Folsted.

Fantastic 4 (2015) Movie Review

“Fantastic 4″ is in every sense of the word a dreadful cinematic experience. The script is lazy, the structure is a mess, and the story is a paceless train wreck. It’s utterly forgettable trash, containing none of the fun and colourful excitement of a Marvel film, while also failing miserably to pull off the grimy look and dark feel of the pictures that inspired it.” – Mathias Folsted.

Jurassic World (2015) Movie Review

“Jurassic World” is neither as groundbreaking or intensively suspenseful as the movie it pays tribute to, but it still has more than enough spectacle and dinosaur action to make for a perfect summer blockbuster. The CGI is efficient, the score is breathtaking, and despite a few plot holes and expendable story lines, it delivers on the promise of high-scale popcorn entertainment, while even being a little philosophical in the process.” – Mathias Folsted.

Why There Doesn’t Need To Be Anymore Star Wars Movies Part 1

Let me just start right away by stating this: I love Star Wars. I sat in a dark theater in the summer of 1977 at the tender age of four and left a different person, forever changed. They say a person’s personality isn’t formed until the age of 7 or 8 so Star Wars is literally a part of who I am. It’s in my DNA.
