Movie Review - Avengers: Age of Ultron

27/04/2015 by Sam Tremayne

One of this year’s biggest films, Avengers: Age of Ultron, is finally here. This is a movie that will break records, smash sales, sell a heap of toys and hold firm this record for a long time to come (well, until December when Star Wars comes out). It’s kind of funny that our generation’s Empire Strikes back is released the same year as the Star Wars universe is revived. Not that it matters… both films will line the pockets of Disney regardless and leaves them in a position where they’ll be Google rich in about 10 months.

Let's Go Deep - Black Sea Film review

21/04/2015 by Sam Tremayne

Black Sea is the kind of movie that’ll probably fly under your radar (or sonar in this case). It’s the story of Jude Law’s Robinson and his quest to haul a lost World War II treasure from a German U-Boat deep under the Turkish sea. Simultaneously, Robinson needs to solve his money woes and reunite his broken family. This is a film that goes in directions that will divide opinions (or perhaps would have, had anyone seen it).
