Umbrella Entertainment December 2017 Releases

Another month, another bundle of essential Umbrella Entertainment releases. December’s line up is a pretty stellar one with some truly essential discs being released. What a way to wrap up the year. (We are not paid by Umbrella to push these releases at all, we simply love their work and feel that folks should be aware of the great releases that are on offer.) That Good Night From Umbrella: ...[Read More]

Transformers: Age of Extinction Review?

Transformers: Age of Extinction Review?

Way back in 2014, Michael Bay released his fourth – and then, due to be last – Transformers film, I wrote this pretty awful review which was blatantly ignorant and really, quite stupid. It was in the infancy of this here website, and due to that, we were running a rundown Blogger page with our reviews. With the arrival of a fifth Michael Bay Transformers, I thought it was time to reviv...[Read More]

The Good Dinosaur

The Good Dinosaur

The Good Dinosaur is like the many paintings that you can buy on ‘canvas’ at Ikea. The reprint of a reprint of a reprint has worn away any sign of originality and vibrance that the original work may have had. At times, they look really quite nice and impressive, but they’re essentially flat and lifeless. The bland core is surrounded by fake beauty. After a brief introduction to a world where dinos...[Read More]

Jurassic World Conquers Box Office.

Jurassic World Conquers Box Office.

In news that will surprise absolutely nobody, Jurassic World has managed to conquer the international box office. Turns out people really like dinosaurs. Or Chris Pratt.

Jurassic World made an estimated $511.8 million world wide since its release only five days ago. Thi...[Read More]

Bernadette’s Jurassic World Review

Bernadette’s Jurassic World Review

HOORAY! Jurassic World doesn’t embarrass itself, which given my reaction to some of the promotional material released for the film, I feared it might do. Instead fans of the franchise are treated to an action packed, occasionally amusing film that has plenty of references to the original film for the child in us all. Chris Pratt is the stand out of the human cast, showing us a darker more sardonic...[Read More]

Andrew’s Jurassic World Review

Andrew’s Jurassic World Review

To say I was excited for Jurassic World is an understatement. Twenty two years ago, I sat in awe with chicken pox in a drive in theatre in Busselton when my Granddad took me to see Jurassic Park. I think the film that it was paired with was Endless Summer 2 – a surfing documentary which was rated G and also happened to have boobs in it. What more could a nine year old want? At night full of dinosa...[Read More]
