Film Dump’s 4th Birthday Review Special! Film Review No.369: The Exterminator

Exterminator-1

How do some films attain cult status? Sometimes it’s because the film housed an idea that sparked a large enough group’s interest. Sometimes it can be because the film is that special kind of inept that we just love to laugh at and with. Sometimes it’s because the blu-ray for the film has a quote printed in it that just reads “Is this the movie where someone’s dropped in a meat grinder? – YouTube comment on The Exterminator trailer”. You see, sometimes, such as with today’s review, it just takes having one scene. But what about the rest of the film? Click below for The Film Dump’s 4th birthday special review.

Fuck movies!


Film Review No.368: Avengers – Age Of Ultron

Avengers-Age-Of-Ultron-4

You know what’s weird? The amount of times characters say the word “weird” in Avengers Age of Ultron. I’m pretty sure everyone gets to say it. Even Ultron. That was weird. Probably one of those Whedonesque things I keep hearing about. Anyway, Avengers: Age of Ultron came out here in the UK today and so I have done my duty unto you and have gone and done seen it. So, some spoilers may be ahead, but nothing too big. I’ll warn you if I’m about to spill something huge. Click the link below and I’ll tell you about how Thor become Lady Thor in the new Avengers film!

Whatever doesn’t kill you only makes you weirder


Film Review No.367: How To Train Your Dragon 2

How To Train Your Dragon 2-2

Quite some time ago, 313 reviews ago in fact, I was quite pleasantly surprised by just how enjoyable Dreamwork’s How To Train Your Dragon was. I tend to give Dreamworks’ films a bit of cautious wide berth, mostly because a large amount of their output is tired or just plain terrible. Seriously, like, 90% of their film’s humour comes from people falling over or actors playing hyper versions of themselves. That’s pretty much all Madagascar is, for example. How To Train Your Dragon was different though. It had an honest to goodness actual story, with characters… and bloody dragons. If your film has dragons there’s a good chance I’ll like it. So, does how To Train Your Dragon 2 match up to the first? Click the link below for my review.

You’d think they’d be all trained up by now.


Critapocalypse Podcast 14: Yahoo Can’t Be Serious

Hey! look at that! It’s Critapocalypse Podcast Episode 14! This week we review Wreck-It Ralph and a whole bunch of stuff that isn’t films. We also reviewed the Daredevil TV series, iZombie, Wrestlemania 31, Borderlands The pre-Sequel and Dark Souls 2! We also beg Yahoo Serious to enter a competition we have going to win a copy of Manborg and Tiptoes. I wonder if he’ll enter? Click below for the Soundcloud version what you can download and stuff.

We’ll probably review more films next time


Film Review No.366: Wreck-It Ralph

Wreck-It-Ralph-3

So I’ve been away from this whole review writing thing for a few weeks. It was a combination on working on videos for my Youtube gaming channel (Mellow gaming, check it out!) and being on holiday in Edinburgh. But I’m back now and I really will try to get these film reviews posting a little more frequently. I mean, I at least have to post one towards the end of the month when we hit The Film Dump’s 4th birthday. What fresh horror of a film will I choose for that? Who knows? I kinda know. Like, I have a pick that will likely be the film. Anyway, this is a review of Wreck-It Ralph… I should probably get on with that.

Film Review No.365: Now You See Me

Now-You-See-Me-1

I kind of skipped past Now You See Me when it was released. Not sure why exactly. Something seemed “off” about it. It appeared to be one of those crime heist movies but with an Ocean’s Eleven vibe. Which is kind of what it half is. It probably could have been exactly that too. But it’s only half that. Click below for my words about this film.
