So Marvel thought it would be hilarious to release Thor The Dark World right in the middle of my Horror Week. Good going Marvel! Why not screw everything up for me as much as you can? Like that time you released The Avengers just as I was about to do my traditional joke review for The Film Dump’s 1st birthday. I’m sure they’ll find a way to screw up the Godzilla season I’m planning. Jerks. Yup, Marvel have it in for me, clearly. So, Thor The Dark World is out in the UK and I just got back from seeing it. So here’s my review… right in the middle of Horror Week. Click the link.

Well isn’t that odd, I’m reviewing two films with the same name one after the other. I hope no-one got confused or thinks I did that on purpose. Just so you know, this review right here is for Marvel’s The Avengers, or Avengers Assemble as they’re calling it here in the UK. Apparently they actually think their core audience is aware of the 60s TV series that my last film review was based on. So I guess if you’ve found your way to this review via a search you’re probably already aware of just how good this film has turned out. Which I guess makes me reviewing it pointless then. Oh well. Bye!
Fine I’ll review it!

Here’s something a little different this week. Instead of the usual random assortment of trailers this week we’re getting around 20 minutes of behind the scenes B-roll footage from The Avengers. Only 2 weeks to go until the summer blockbuster season gets kicked off to a start with Marvels mightiest heroes. I’m keeping an eye out for the trailer to the Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Bruce Willis starring Looper to become available too today so that will be added once I see it. For now, click the link for some Avengers based fun!
So yeah, there’s a new Avengers trailer out and it’s pretty sexy. Looks like this will be the top popcorn flick of the summer for sure. On the flipside I’m going to post a trailer for the new Adam Sandler film, That’s My Boy, which looks terrible. Really really terrible. Also a new John Carter (Of Mars) trailer. I guess I’ll post something retro too when I can think of something. Click the link dawgs!!
Well here it is. The Avengers Movie trailer. The full one, not the one you saw at the end of Captain America. Is it me or is there a distinct Bay-formers feel to the first few seconds. Anyway, watch it, comment and be prepared to assemble at your local cinema next summer!
So yeah, I started this blog around midnight on the 25th of April on a whim after watching Mortal Kombat and thinking “I should write a review of this in the hopes someone will read it and help massage my ego”. Well 30 days later and there’s very little ego massaging going on, but there are stats to be shared. So here we go…
Well here it is. The first big blockbuster movie of the summer and also my first new release movie review. Thor fans have waited a long time for his film adaptation and not only do we finally get to see Asgard on a cinema screen but we also get one step closer to Joss Whedon’s The Avengers movie due out next summer. So, here we go. Will Chris Hemsworth make a worthy Thor? Can Kenneth Branagh direct action? Will Anthony Hopkins look a little silly dressed head to toe in molded rubber? Click the jump to find out!
