First off, let me say, I didn’t have high expectations for this movie, so I wasn’t too deeply disappointed. Based on the second installment of Rick Riordan’s series of novels, the sequel to 2010′s The Lightning Thief picks up where its predecessor left off. From Percy (Logan Lerman) to his girl sidekick Annabeth (Alexandra Daddario) […]

Review: Olympus OMD EM5

When I was given the Olympus OMD EM5 to review, on my recent trip to Scotland, I was pretty excited. In reality, the more I used it in the unpredictable weather conditions in Scotland, the more I loved it. Yes the level of amazingness steadily grew, as I spent a good two weeks, testing the […]

Today’s guest-review is by Dave from The Longest Way Home Travel Blog. Thor, don’t miss the thunder god’s marvel adaption. Comic book superheros movies are a hit and miss affair for me.

TRON: LEGACY

"TRON 2:  THE LEGACY"

Right, let’s talk about Tron.. in Three D. Cumi found it extremely so-so. He lamented that the music was somewhat unimaginative, the costumes bland (no differentiation from one white or black suite to the other), the effects average and the overall production of the film, lackluster. He complained that after you get past the neon-glow […]

Based on an original concept from Shyamalan’s sketchbook, Devil‘s surprisingly clever script was written by Brian Nelson, whom we all know from Hard Candy and 30 Days of Night, both great movies. M.
