An intelligent science fiction from Alex Garland, a writer turned film director. Did Garland make the transition from writing to directing successfully? 
Screenwriters are the firsts to bring a film to life, in their minds they see the story unfold in a certain way. Their words and ideas become the blueprint of a film. So it doesn't surprise me that some writers feel the urge to sit on the director's chair and film their story themselves.

Book to Film Comparison: The Incal and The Fifth Element

Ant-Man's a superhero character that has always been underestimated because you know, what's his power? Getting real small? Wow. People think, what, he talks to ants? That's his power? Which takes me back to when Garrett Morris (who by the way cameos in this film as a Taxi Driver) played Ant-Man ...

Biggest Cliché’s in Movie History: Villains Who Fall to Their Deaths
A scene from Hitchcock's Saboteur (1942)  One of the biggest cliché’s in
films is the one where the villain falls to his death. This plot device is used
in order to rid the hero of any responsibility for the villains’ death. In this
way, the hero remains a ...
One of the biggest cliché's in films is the one where the villain falls to his death. This plot device is used in order to rid the hero of any responsibility for the villains' death. In this way, the hero remains a hero, he doesn't become a murderer. This is why so many Disney's villains fall to ...

Here's a zombie movie with Arnold Schwarzenegger which immediately makes you think you're going to see Arnold kicking all sorts of zombie ass and what have you, but be advised, that is not the type of movie you will get. Maggie is a more somber affair. I wasn't expecting a big zombie action ...

It took eight people to write Heavy Metal 2000, the film I will be reviewing today, and you know how that goes, the more writers a film has, the worse the movie is going to be! And this movie had eight writers! Was the resulting script a disaster? Or did these eight writers achieve their goals ...

Ever wondered just how much of Jodorowsky's The Incal Luc Besson ripped off when he made The Fifth Element (1995)? Wonder no more, check out this article in which I number the many similarities between the two!

So is the latest addition to the Marvel Cinematic Universe worth a damn? Read my review and find out! I'll give you a hint: it rocked!

Arnold tackles the zombie genre, how did he fare? 
Here's a zombie movie with Arnold Schwarzenegger which immediately makes you think you're going to see Arnold kicking all sorts of zombie ass and what have you, but be advised, that is not the type of movie you will get. Maggie is a more somber affair. I wasn't expecting a big zombie action ...

Today I take a look at an often times overlooked American animation film Heavy Metal 2000 (2000), the sequel to Heavy Metal (1981). Is it a worthy sequel? 
It took eight people to write Heavy Metal 2000, the film I will be reviewing today, and you know how that goes, the more writers a film has, the worse the movie is going to be! And this movie had eight writers! Was the resulting script a disaster? Or did these eight writers achieve their goals ...

Wow, it's been a long time since I'd seen such a messy movie, and from once groundbreaking directors too! Check out my review for Jupiter Ascending (2015)!
It's an interesting thing keeping the pulse of the film industry, you see directors rise to become almost rock stars and then you see them fall, to never be heard from again. They make that one good movie that takes over the world and then a god awful second and third film.
