Twilight (2008)

For a movie about ancient feuds between rival vampire families and werewolves, Twilight is painfully dull. Unlike Underworld, a film with the same premise, there’s no action or excitement. This might be because the film is presented from the perspective of the most boring high school girl in the history of the universe. Bella Swan (Kristen Stewart) has […]

Tammy and the T-Rex (1994)

If there’s one thing we can learn from Tammy and the T-Rex, it’s that love is at its strongest in the face of adversity. This film tells the incredibly useless story of Michael (played by Paul Walker, RIP), a young man who has his brain transplanted into a robotic dinosaur’s body, and his attempt to reconcile […]

Showgirls (1995)

Showgirls tells the story of switchblade-toting, orphan hitchhiker Nomi Malone (Elizabeth Berkley) and her commendable ambition to someday become a successful naked dancer on stage in the Las Vegas strip. Who hasn’t had such a wholesome, family friendly dream? She’s a six-mood-swing-a-minute type of girl, screaming like a defiant teenager one moment and making out with strange women the […]

SceneStudy – Cars Don’t Fly

“Your chute is guided by GPS! You don’t have to do anything!” Dear Furious 7 writers: a solid effort, but that line does not convince me skydiving in cars is plausible. “Cars Don’t Fly!” – Paul Walker, Furious 7 – I know, Furious 7 is just a dumb action movie, and maybe I shouldn’t take it as seriously […]

Furious 7 (2015)

“You ever heard the saying, the enemy of my enemy is my friend?” “I don’t got friends. I got family.” Does anyone remember the first movie in this series? The Fast and the Furious? It tells the story of an undercover FBI agent infiltrating a group of street racer thugs who steal dvd players from […]

Fifty Shades of Grey (2015)

Before it was a movie, or even a book for that matter, Fifty Shades of Grey was posted online by author E L James as an internet fan fiction. Using the internet handle ‘Snowqueen’s Icedragon,’  James was originally writing her kinky story using characters from The Twilight Saga books. Halfway through writing, she decided to change […]

Super Mario Brothers (1993)

They aren’t even wearing suspenders. When I think of Super Mario Brothers, I picture the mushroom kingdom; a lush, colourful video game world populated by cute characters and evil turtles. I think of two plumber brothers with thick Italian accents riding dinosaurs with stretchy tongues. A princess in distress. Giant angry bullets. I don’t think […]
