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!

Just over a year ago I reviewed the mostly crowd funded internet video reviewer spin-off movie Ashens and the Quest for the Gamechild. I quite enjoyed that film though remarked that some familiarity with the Youtube sensation that is Stuart Ashen may be required. This is possibly even more of a requirement to get the best out of The Angry Video Game Nerd movie. I figure a large amount of my audience here err closer to the nerdier side of things but I may have to provide some backstory to this film to give you an idea who The Nerd is. So, click below and I’ll discuss The Nerd, his genuine impact on internet review culture and, maybe, I’ll mention this film too.
Just over 130 reviews around I covered the Lucky McKee directed film The Woman. I really liked that sick little piece of work and so have had my eyes on his follow up All Cheerleaders Die for some time. Last night I spotted it was on Netflix, wondered how long it had been there and why I hadn’t noticed, and then figured I should probably stop staring at the website itself and just start staring at the film instead. This was a good choice. Click below for my review.
I’m really quite annoyed that I couldn’t get hold of a copy of Destroy All Monsters. The reason is because I have now had to watch two of the most misguided Godzilla films of the Showa era in a row. The last film I reviewed was Son of Godzilla. A film that features Godzilla playing pops to a baby Godzilla known as Minilla. That film may have been first of the Godzilla films squarely aimed at children, but it did at least bear the hallmarks of the sci-fi elements you expect from the series along with the sort of characters you expect. All Monsters Attack is odd. Really odd. How odd? Click the link below and I’ll explain.
Did you know that both Spider-man and Godzilla make an appearance in the original version of the Mega Drive classic The Revenge of Shinobi? No? You didn’t care? oh… sorry. Was just trying to tie this review into Godzilla Season. I mean, this film has just kind of appeared right in the middle of my efforts to review as many Godzilla films as I can. Kind of a dick move Sony. Anyway, I just got back from seeing Amazing Spider-man 2 and after the link is my thoughts. The review will discuss spoilers but I’ll keep the most important of them at the bottom of the post and clearly signpost the, first. There is various small plot details littered throughout though.

Here’s a thing that bugs me. There was an Ali G and a Keith frigging Lemon movie before there was an Alan Partridge one. What the hell is wrong with the world that Keith smegging Lemon gets a film made and released theatrically before the king of North Norfolk Digital does? That legit annoys me for two reasons. 1) Keith lemon sucks and b) Keith lemon sucks balls. I’m so sharp and cutting with my wit. Anyway, the Alan Partridge film is finally a thing and I saw it last night. Is it a big plate providing more value for money than the standard plate or is it a mentalist you wish to get away from?

You know what I love about all these crowd sourced things these days? Occasionally something people fund gets made on time and turns out good. Amanda Palmer did an incredible job of that with her Theatre Is Evil Kickstarter. Earlier this year world famous internet reviewer of tat Stuart Ashen (or is that Ashens?) launched an Indiegogo project to fund the production of an Ashens movie. Yes, at some point, whilst hunched over the sofa possibly reviewing some Poundland wrestling figures, Stuart Ashen thought to himself “I could make a film of this you know”. Thankfully, at some point after this revelation, Ashens realised it would probably be better to make an actual film than a 2 hour review. And so here it is. Ashens and the Quest for the GameChild, the feature length adventure of one Stuart Ashen searching for the single greatest piece of tat in the world. Click the link for my review, and the full film itself. Cos it’s on the YouTubes!!!
