Reboots Assemble : Jay and Silent Bob Reboot!

by joshkingofgeekson 04/12/2019
To say i’m a Kevin Smith fan is putting it lightly and to even say i’m in the demographic doesn’t even scratch the surface of my adoration of this man. With an evening of Reboot Pie, followed by an after show Q&A, I couldn’t quite understand why the gods hadn’t struck me down right there […]

Why you should watch Lethal Weapon (2016)

by Cristina Bogdanon 04/10/2016
This pilot season seems to be rife with reboots. From the soulless MacGyver to The Exorcist, it seems like old ideas are being recycled and adapted for a new audience. I kept wondering why that is. Is there really nothing new to be thought out in the world? Is our imagination dying? It just felt […]

Ghostbusters: Rebooting a classic

by TinkerTonkson 11/02/2016
When news of Paul Feig’s Ghostbusters reboot initially broke, suffice to say it caused a great deal of polarity in opinion. From the very beginning, it caused widespread division within the GB fandom, with further details and information giving greater traction to a constant war of words and outrage. Earlier this week in fact, one […]

DC Comics Push the Button Again

by MrCraiggyon 23/01/2016
So, you may have guessed from previous articles such as my look at Batman Europa, I am what you might call a DC Comics fanboy. Now don’t get me wrong, I enjoy Marvel. I enjoy Marvel a lot; The current run of Iron Man and Spider-Man 2099 are on my reading list, but there’s just something […]

A-Team to return to our TVs…Yay?

by Cristina Bogdanon 26/09/2015
It was recently announced that Chris Morgan (Fast&Furious) is set to be the producer of a TV series revival of the ’80s hit A-Team. The show will also benefit from the presence of TV director Tawnia McKiernan and Albert Kim, who will be writing the adaptation. I suppose television is a business and it’s all about […]

8 Sequels And Remakes I Actually Want, That Hollywood Will Not Give Me

by spikedirectionon 07/07/2015
You don’t have to look hard to find film fans complaining, at length, about the indomitable tide of unwanted sequels or remakes swamping our cinemas and taking funds away from creative or interesting ideas. I’d usually be one of them; I’d much rather be surprised by something new, than watch studio execs, led by focus […]

Who The Hell Is Tom Holland?

by spikedirectionon 29/06/2015
For a little while during Marvel Studios’ search for the next Spider-Man, once they’d announced they were going for a Peter Parker rather than a Miles Morales (Who could ONLY be played by Donald Glover now anyway), it seemed as if every white male of the right age, height and weight was being herded through […]

Remakes, reboots and a list of 65 of them to rant about

by James Woodheadon 03/07/2014
Before you skip right to the list, stick with me for a minute. It’ll make your outrage even sweeter. They’re going to remake the Six Million Man. I’m not entirely sure how you can remake a movie of something that was never a movie, but they’re going to anyway. Had the pre-production marketing plugged it […]

Scarface, Rebooting a Legend and Playing with Political Fire

by James Woodheadon 25/03/2014
Last week I let out a little rant about the subject of reboots, it seems this week will be the same. Last night, The Wrap revealed that Chilean director, Pablo Larrain (Academy Award nominee for “No” as Foreign Language film) will be taking over the helm to from David Yates (Harry Potter and the Deathly […]

The Grudge – Rebooted…

by James Woodheadon 22/03/2014
The Motion Picture Association of America (MPAA) frequently tells us how the creative industries are under threat from the copyright infringing scourge of piracy. So we can only presume that the creative industries have lost the war and creativity is dead as we delve deeper into 2014 with a yet more pointless reboots of movies.  […]
