Why, you scour the countryside to retain the services of a small group of reluctant warriors with troubled back stories looking to make up for the sins of the past.

The smoke clears. The dust settles. For one, brief moment, it seems as though the stillness of the air could be a tranquil silence. A peaceful rearrangement of particles. That rare alignment of the cosmos that grants those most rare moments of serenity, where the world is in harmony, and the forces of nature and man align. But then, the moment passes. As your gaze trails ever upwards, your eyes slowly taking in the sight in front o...

"Now I have a machine gun. Ho, ho, ho." Often imitated but never duplicated, Die Hard has withstood the test of time to become firmly established in that hallowed pantheon of All-Time Classic Action Films. Its protagonist, John McClane, the wrong man in the wrong place at the wrong time, has become an archetypal action movie hero, the everyman answer to the muscle-bound question posed by the likes of Schwarzenegger and St...

A man out of time must summon the courage to save the life of a young child while battling humankind's most ancient of enemies: the dinosaur. Also, gross bugs that crawl into bodily orifices while you're sleeping. Though a box office flop, the movie 65 serves as a cinematic curiosity: a sci-fi genre film with a bizzare premise that tackles its subject matter with absolute seriousness. For all of its nonsensical plot points and, fra...

In this universe, there are things known, and there are things unknown, and sometimes bridging that gap just takes a little conversation. Talk To Me is this year's breakout horror hit from Australia (which is totally a thing we expect from the Land Down Under every year), offering a unique take on the ghost story / demon possession genre and creating all kinds of buzz in the horror world. An underdog pack of teens battling superna...

There's a legend that's spoken of in hushed tones by people of every country and creed, from the dive bars of Los Angeles to the back alleys of Brazil to the neon-lit cityscape of downtown Tokyo. A whisper, carried faintly upon the breeze, of a promise that lies just over the horizon. The legend speaks of a tribe, a family, made up of the unwanted. Misfits. Outcasts. Criminals. This is a family where all are welcome at the table, b...

Just when you thought it was safe to go back in the water. From the director who brought us Rambo: Last Blood comes a new terrifying vision of aquatic violence known as The Black Demon. Is it a giant shark? A mutant aberration? A zoological holdover from an ancient race of megalodons? An instrument of vengeance sent by the gods to punish humanity for our crimes against nature? An allegory for the consequences of our centuries of en...

It's a me, the Real Film Chronicles review of the Super Mario Bros. Movie! After 40 years and a couple of false starts, Nintendo finally made a successful transition from video games to the silver screen (all due respect to The Wizard and 1993's Super Mario Bros.). With an all-star cast; the full might of the animated film film titan, Illumination; Nintendo's Scrooge-McDuck-esque coffers; and four decades of simmering nostalgia, Th...

Strap yourself in and prepare for a non-stop, white-knuckle, action-packed thrill ride. And if that doesn't pan out, then you can always unstrap yourself and sit down to watch Operation Fortune: Ruse de Guerre instead, the perfect movie for a lazy Sunday afternoon. Guy Ritchie's action adventure spy movie runs at a brisk pace quite confidently down the exact middle of the road, moored as much by the obvious fun Ritchie takes in get...

If there's one constant in the film industry, it's that the only sure way to improve a movie is to add copious amounts of cocaine, either behind or in front of the camera. If any movie proves this, it is certainly Cocaine Bear. Unleashed upon suspecting audiences after an incredibly effective marketing campaign, the bloody, drug-fuelled mayhem of the movie ironically serves as a sort of cinematic palate cleanser, offering a...
