I say this as a true lover of the Ghostbusters movies (especially the first one the sequel wasn’t brilliant but then sequels never are and because of this it was good). What is wrong with leaving a franchise alone? Is there no dignity in the American film industry?
Not only is it bad enough that “Ghostbusters 3” is going ahead with the start of filming in 2012 but they haven’t even said if Bill Murray will be involved- what is Ghostbusters without Bill Murray? So basically I am expecting three straight men getting gunged in 3D by some well cgi monsters.

Doctor Who in an HOUR!!!

Doctor Who is on in an hour as Yoda would say (you may ask why Yoda and I shall tell you because Yoda is the godfather of non human characters e.g. Doby) EXITED I AM!

The Hour - Final

First of all I loved this series; total nice tepid sought of thriller that hurts no one is a way that is enjoyable and nice on a Tuesday afternoon.  Admittedly it is strange how much resonance the miniseries has had about today’s media, have we really moved on that much?

The Green Hornet - Review

Having read many horrific reviews of “The Green Hornet” at the time of its cinema release I decided to wait for DVD and don’t get me wrong I am glad I did. The thing I found with this film is that it was strangely ok.
Although set up a combination of Superbad (or films such as) with the more classical superhero films. I don’t know if this film achieved what it set out to achieve but I must admit from a point of view of someone who rented the film from LOVEFILM and thus didn’t have to pay for it that it was an insubstantially good film. In the sense that it had a few nice points and it wasn’t too serious.
Acting wise the film was good at not selling its souls to the stars (accept of course Seth Rogan). Stars such as Cameron Diaz and Christopher Wiltz could have been utilized through the sheer power of their star power into every single shot of the film but they didn’t. Seth Rogan meanwhile got away with being a slightly muted version of the characters he has played in Knocked Up and

The Amazing Spiderman ?

Do we need another Spiderman film?
Now don’t get me wrong the last Spiderman franchise was gut charmingly cheesy, but why not wait another five or ten years when we will no longer tats the bile of the mishaps of the original trilogy? It seems these films are more about correcting the image of Spiderman making him less weakling, annoying and cheeseballish as depredated by Tobey Maguire.
Instead we are left with Andrew Garfield who hot off the press from “The Social Network” and “Never Let Me Go” has been proven talented. Of course Garfield being English will have to be pitch perfect in his role as an American, although admittedly in “The Social Network” he seemed pretty good.
Admittedly I am unimpressed with the rest of the cast; I mean Emma Stone isn't exactly known for her acting capability. Rhys Ifans is at least a good actor and should be a good baddy. And I can’t say anything against Sally Field after watching her in ER.
Marc Webb as director is a very interesting indeed. Known manly for his television work etc. “The Office”, and films such as “500 Days of Summer” he has talent sure, and hopefully his presence could make the film different from the other more repetitive forms of superhero films that we seem inundated with at the moment.
It seems most of the writers involved in this film are trying to repent for the sins they made with the other Spiderman films.
Will this film lead to the repetition of the awkwardness I felt at?

Is anyone else less than impressed with the new series of Torchwood?
