0I don't remember seeing interstellar travellers on the board game. Why they decided to make this film is beyond me. Seriously, it makes no sense. What are they gonna do, take turns in trying to kill each other? AMAZING. Kazed
Battleship(2012) TrailerYup. You read that right. Battleship, the famous board game, is now a film. Let's face it, we've seen worse. Anyway, the trailer:

Cast revealed for Clash of The Titans sequel...*SIGH*I don't even understand why this film made as much as it did. It was terrible. But, there were people out there who liked it, and WB can't argue with the results it garnered. Anyway, here's the synopsis for the film, along with some casting news:
A decade after his heroic defeat of the monstrous Kraken, Perseus—the demigod son of Zeus—is attempting to live a quieter life as a village fisherman and the sole parent to his 10-year old son, Helius. Meanwhile, a struggle for supremacy rages between the gods and the Titans. Dangerously weakened by humanity’s lack of devotion, the gods are losing control of the imprisoned Titans and their ferocious leader, Kronos, father of the long-ruling brothers Zeus, Hades and Poseidon. The triumvirate had overthrown their powerful father long ago, leaving him to rot in the gloomy abyss of Tartarus, a dungeon that lies deep within the cavernous underworld. Perseus cannot ignore his true calling when Hades, along with Zeus’ godly son, Ares (Edgar Ramírez), switch loyalty and make a deal with Kronos to capture Zeus. The Titans’ strength grows stronger as Zeus’ remaining godly powers are siphoned, and hell is unleashed on earth. Enlisting the help of the warrior Queen Andromeda (Rosamund Pike), Poseidon’s demigod son, Argenor (Toby Kebbell), and fallen god Hephaestus (Bill Nighy), Perseus bravely embarks on a treacherous quest into the underworld to rescue Zeus, overthrow the Titans and save mankind.Whatever, you know? I can't believe a part of me was excited for the first film. In my defense though, the trailer did look pretty badass. It's actually quite funny; the fact that the original film was made eons before any of this '3D' shit existed, years before the Fleshlight, but it still held up pretty well- it still does, to this day. But that's how it is. You hand a child a ball with a trillion dollars, he's gonna make shit for a film. Not that's an exaggeration. It wasn't that bad, it had good FX, but it's got nothing on the original. Check out my review HERE. Kazed
Jack Reviews: Unknown (2011)When watching the trailer for Unknown I was very excited to watch this preview and expected a lot, as the film reminded me of Liam Neeson’s 2008 action packed Taken. However if you watch this film, you will come to realise very soon that this is not Taken 2, as I did, and will be severely disappointed. Unknown is the story of Dr. Martin Harris (Neeson) who is involved in a car crash in Berlin and as a result is in a coma for four days. Upon waking, Elizabeth (January Jones), his wife of five years, no longer recognises him. But, if that wasn’t bad enough, there is someone else claiming that he is Dr. Martin Harris and even has all the same documents. Harris struggles for people to believe him while being hunted by almost everyone, resulting in his growing paranoia and a lack of trust of those around him. To find out the truth Harris tracks down taxi driver Gina (Diane Kruger) in an attempt to discover his past in order to redefine his future. The film is a brainless exercise to pass a couple of hours without being taken seriously at all. Though, the fight scenes, at times, are very entertaining and there is quite a cool car chase towards the end of the film. But, the thing that really bothered me about this film was the total disregard towards the small details. At moments the dialogue became cringe-worthy with much of the cinema laughing during these moments. The editing during the fights scene was so quick it was hard to see who the hell was hitting who. And finally I just didn’t see a rapport between any of the characters with much of the acting below par. However, Neelson I feel does play the role very well and at 57 shows he can compete with actors half his age and can still teach them a thing or two. As I said before, you cannot really compare this film with Taken as it is hard to have a change of character from a government secret agent to a biotech and still give off the true badass aura. The film seems as if it is forgetting which genre it is trying to portray: combining crime drama, action blockbuster, and mystery thriller into a confusing mess. It is an OK film but remember to leave your logic behind before viewing this film. 2/5 Unknown is in cinemas March 4.
