2013 Monday Movie Show Award Winners

Another year is about to come to a close and it’s probably the best time to look over what this year has brought us.

Yes we still suck at sport no matter what it is, we are still in a rescission where the government says we are fine however we know that we are still screwed, the videogame industry saw two new consoles released and people still complain oh and most music still sucks.

However we are not here to look over that annoying stuff we are here to celebrate the best and worst of 2013 in the wonderful world of films.  So me and Andrew got our heads together and came up with what we think deserve a couple of awards, yes there were some arguments (i still have the bruisers) but we finally came to an agreement and the awards can be viewed below.

We learn in the opening prologue that the title refers to the planet of the Dark Elves, where thousands of years ago a war was waged between them and Asgard. Malekith (Christopher Eccleston), the leader of the Dark Elves tried to use a weapon called the Aether – capable of enveloping the universe in darkness, but Bor (Tony Curran) leader of the Asgard, defeated them and took the Aether to hide it. On present day Earth while searching for signs of Thor with her equipment, Jane Foster (Natalie Portman) stumbles upon the hiding place of the Aether, accidentally becoming host to it, and awakening Malekith and the last of the Dark Elves.

Trailer: Red Dawn

First Impression: This film has been in movie hell like a previous Chris Hemsworth film and too me it look’s like it could be a fun action film, yes it’s another remake of a 80’s film but let’s hope it’s much better than the Australian version Tomorrow When the War Begins.

The Brothers Grimm’s story of Snow White and the seven dwarves has been told multiple times in many media, movies in particular first told the story almost 100 years ago. This year we’ve already had another version released in cinemas, Tarsem Singh’s Mirror Mirror, with a slightly different take on the traditional story. Disney were planning until recently to do another take on the story, to be set in the east with the seven dwarves replaced by samurai. Read the rest of this entry

Review: The Cabin in the Woods

Directed by: Drew Goddard

Starring: Kristen Connolly, Chris Hemsworth, Anna Hutch, Fran Kranz

Rating:   Running Time: 95mins

If you have listened to any review i’ve done or know me then you would know that horror is a genre i hold dear to my heart, in my eyes it’s the only thing in film that can make you feel very nervous and scared but over the last few years the genre has become stale with carbon copies cropping up everywhere none so more than the usual cabin in the woods style story.  It’s really difficult to try and take something that has been done a thousand times before and make it fresh but also make it feel a little bit unique however when you have the brilliant mind of Joss Wheadon and somebody who gave the found footage genre of horror a good kick up the arse there is a chance that this could be one of those rare gems that horror is solely missing.

Trailer: Snow White and the Huntsman

In a twist to the fairy tale, the Huntsman ordered to take Snow White into the woods to be killed winds up becoming her protector and mentor in a quest to vanquish the Evil Queen.

First Impression: Kirsten Stewart likes to be type casted doesn’t she, to me this looks like they have taken the loved children’s fairy tale and thought why don’t we make it a little bit like twilight and add the guy from Thor just to add a bit more action.

It will be a huge film when it comes out in June next year but will i be the one to go and see it for the show i doubt it so @ahdvd will have to be the one to review this one.
