Snowpiercer

-Review by Paul Ewbank- Snowpiercer was originally a French dystopian post apocalyptic graphic novel, released in 1982 to critical acclaim. Last month a Korean film adaptation starring Chris Evans hit American theatres, and to coincide an English language version of the source material was released for the first time by Titan Comics. Having managed to…

Bunraku (2010)

-Review by Paul Ewbank-   Watching films you know nothing about is always an unpredictable, surprising activity, but I’ve rarely been as surprised, nay baffled, by a film the way Bunraku defied any expectations I might’ve had. Viewed only on the knowledge that it had quite an impressive cast- including Josh Hartnett, Demi Moore, Woody…

Outpost (2007)

For those of you who are long-standing readers you may remember my quest to discover the ultimate Nazi-Zombie film. On my travels so far I have come across some highly acclaimed but ultimately really REALLY bad films and some bad films that aren’t even highly acclaimed. Needless to say no film I have unroofed has…

X Men: Days of Future Past (2014)

  -Review by Paul Ewbank- Gosh, I really wanted to like this film. I’ve always been a fan of X-Men. Ever since watching the TV series as a kid I’ve had a soft spot for this particular franchise, and the films and my occasional forays into the source comic books have always been enjoyable even…

Captain America: The Winter Soldier (2014)

-Review by Paul Ewbank- Any doubts that Marvel could carry on making their individual characters’ movies work in the post-Avengers universe are finally laid to rest by Captain America: The Winter Soldier, a film that manages to establish its own tone and style while still delivering an awesome action movie and setting up some big…

After Earth (2013)

-Review by Paul Ewbank- Bad films can still be entertaining. Just like how you can watch or read something and cerebrally know it’s very well made and intelligent but still honestly find it a bit boring (coughbladerunnercough), it’s very easy to enjoy something whilst knowing its derivative and pretty badly made and probably isn’t going…

The Purge (2013)

What crime would you commit if for 12 hours every year all crime was legal? For me it would probably be the same crimes I commit the rest of the year… none. For some reason there isn’t a part of me that would secretly like to go out and kill someone or rape someone and…

World War Z (2012)

World War Z has taken me a while to get around to reviewing as I have been putting it off and putting it off and putting it off… In some respects I absolutely love this film – it has transformed the way I view a zombie apocalypse, but in others I really feel that Hollywood…

Almost Human (1977) AKA Shockwaves

From previous posts you have no doubt stumbled upon my quest to discover the best Nazi-Zombie movie of all time. After having done some study on the topic, critics have suggested that Shockwaves (not sure why it is also called Almost Human…) is up there as one of the most popular/famous, cult-classic Zombie-Nazi films of…

Dark City (1998)

-Reivew by Paul Ewbank- So my last batch of reviews have been stretching the boundaries of what can be considered apocalyptic almost to breaking point, so let’s get back to what this blog is really all about: horribly depressing apocalyptic and dystopian media. Well you can’t get much more dystopian sounding than a film called…

GallowWalkers (2012)

-Review by Paul Ewbank- GallowWalkers is a zombie horror/ Wild West crossover film starring Wesley Snipes released straight to DVD in 2012. Based on that information alone I should’ve been able to guess how terrible it was going to be. I think our reasons for watching it were that the trailer made it look pretty…

Zombie Lake (1981)

When a review I was reading claimed that Dead Snow (2009) was only the 3rd best Zombie Nazi film of all time I decided it was high time I watched the supposed top two. Now, as a massive fan of Dead Snow, I had high hopes for Zombie Lake, with it being placed at Number…
