0016: Transformers, Real Steel, Pacific Rim

0016: Transformers, Real Steel, Pacific Rim

The rating system remains mired in mediocre film territory, with more middling to terrible films added to the list. (Well, Alex liked Pacific Rim a lot at least.)

Everyone likes Hugh Jackman, no one likes Transformers and Sam still hates kids.

0015: Giant Robots Weeks Preview Show

0015: Giant Robots Weeks Preview Show

Michael Bay returns to cinemas soon with another bloody Transformers film, so we hop on another bandwagon and get ready to rate three films full of giant robots.  Sadly none of these films is the greatest of all giant robot films, 1986’s Transformers The Movie, which would no doubt be top of this list were we allowed to watch it. #notmyTransformers

Anyway, links to the trailers below so you can watch along at home, and get your thoughts into us about these films before we rate them next Monday!

Trailers:

Transformers

Real Steel

Pacific Rim

0014: The Hunger Games, Ender’s Game, Divergent

0014: The Hunger Games, Ender’s Game, Divergent

Our latest  attempt to appear current and relevant backfires, as the latest Divergent film gets cancelled and we watch three middling to bad teen science fiction films for no reason at all!  Still, at least they’re ranked now and its out of the way. No, wait, there’s about eight million films like this so we’ll be back.  Sigh.

Alex is pro Hunger Games, Chris is pro being a farmer, and Sam is pro starting a different podcast.

0013: Teen Sci-Fi Preview Week

0013: Teen Sci-Fi Preview Week

A long time ago a film called Divergent: Ascendant was meant to be out in the cinema this week. But then the previous entry in the series flopped and it became a TV movie and then that didn’t happen either…

But if it had this week’s trilogy of teen sci-fi films would make perfect sense!  Who better to review three films aimed at young adults than three jaded thirtysomething men?  No one, thats who! #engagement #crossmediapollination

Here are the trailers for this weeks films so you can watch along at home!

Divergent

Hunger Games

Ender’s Game
