My Thoughts on the Olympic Opening Ceremony

Now anyone who knows me knows that I do not care about sport of any kind at all and to that extent I have not really been that fused over the London 2012 Olympics. Granted, being British, I understand the pride we feel over us getting the Olympics but I've never felt that way. However, when I found out that Danny Boyle, director of Trainspotting, Sunshine and Slumdog Millionaire was doing the Opening Ceremony, my hopes were raised that the ceremony would be good, and it did not disappoint. This was a brilliant Opening Ceremony.

The Dark Knight Rises Review

This is it, the big film event of the year, Christopher Nolan ending his trilogy of Batman films. For most people this has eclipsed even The Hobbit and Avengers Assemble as the big film of the year so what did I think. This was a brilliant end to the best series of superhero films ever made.

Right now the main news story is the massacre at a midnight screening of The Dark Knight Rises. My sympathies go out to all those affected by the shootings both directly and indirectly and to the friends and family of those who died in particular.

Prometheus Review Edit

A few weeks ago I posted my review of Prometheus, giving it a score of 3/5 an okay score. After thinking about it for a while, I now have to admit that Prometheus was a pretty bad film. The plot holes are now incredibly overwhelming, the acting was pretty bad from most members of the cast (Michael Fassbender excluded) and the characters, aside from David and the pilots, were completely forgettable. On that basis I now have to change my review score for Prometheus from 3/5 to 2/5

The Amazing Spider-Man Review

For most of the year I have not been looking forward to The Amazing Spider-Man. The fact that the film was only made so Columbia didn't lose the rights to the series to Marvel was bad enough but the trailers made the film look awful, filled with the pre-destiny rubbish that is not right for Spider-Man. But when I watched the film I found it to be okay but nothing really amazing.

Comic Con 2012

Since Comic Con has just finished I feel that I should try something different and give my highlights of the news from Comic Con. Now there won't be anything about trailers and footage shown at Comic Con since I wasn't there, I will just be talking about the announcements made at Comic Con. Without further ado, let's start with:

Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy Radio Show Live Review

For the most part on this blog I keep my posts related to film events that I feel I should talk about/review. However I need to make an exception for this, something that all British geeks should be familiar with, The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, and I got to see the radio show performed live by the original cast.
