Review: Olympus E-P2 Shoot in Stylish Black

Photography and Olympus enthusiasts will be interested to know that the retro PEN E-P2 now comes in a special black version. Cosmetic differences aside, the special edition kit also comes with an all-new black 17mm M.Zuiko lens and FL-14 flash.

Canon EOS 1000D Review

The 1000D’s 2 1/2 in LCD screen is rather small, but in every other respect it betters its rivals. It has dedicated buttons for all the key controls, and performance is good, with only 0.5 seconds between shots. The 10-megapixel sensor easily competes with pricier 12- and 15-megapixel examples, with far less noise.

Movie Reviews: Chloe

A revisit of 2003 French erotic thriller “Nathalie…” with European cinema greats Emmanuelle Beart as the irresistible whore while Fanny Ardant and Gerard Depardieu play the embattled married couple, “Chloe” is a low-intensity Hollywood addition that will benefit from its array of A-listers and the intrigue of its decorated director Atom Egoyan (who has been shooting dark dramas since “Sweet Hereafter” in 1997) but ultimately falters because it cannot replicate the controlled explosiveness and the European sophistication in the original, leading us to question its character arcs.

Movie Reviews: Hot Tub Time Machine

“Hot Tub Time Machine” revolves around a trio of friends since high school who have suffered bad luck in their adult lives, after having one of the best lives when they were teenagers.

Movie Reviews: Predators 2010

If you’re wondering why this Robert Rodriquez re-update feels so close to home with the two “Predator” movies in 1987 and 1990 when you were expecting it to be another colossal CGI bore in the vein of say, “The Incredible Hulk” (2008), that’s because it’s based on ideas that the “From Dusk Till Dawn” (1996) and “Sin City” (2005) director developed more than 15 years ago after watching the originals. Ignoring the events in all the “AVP” spawns, the man commissions the able hands of Nimród Antal (“Kontrol” 2003, “Vacancy” 2007) to direct a largely satisfying picture that is dirtier, edgier and less pretentious than one would’ve thought

Movie Review: The A-team

The A-Team goes silver screen! The 1980′s show which popularised Mr. T’s Mohawk and his catchphrase “Pity Fool!” now sees new faces as the four fearless Army Rangers turned mercenaries, lead by Colonel Hannibal Smith (Liam Neeson) and a brand new storyline that is taking us back to the root of it all – how Colonel Smith, Lt. Face, Sgt. Baracus and Capt. H.M. Howling Mad Murdoch ended up as soldiers of fortune.

The Twilight Saga: Eclipse Movie Review

After Catherine Hardwicke (“Twilight”) and Chris Weitz’s (“New Moon”) adaptation of the story, fans would see the continuation of the heated saga in “Eclipse” through the eyes of new director David Slade (“Hard Candy”), in which turns out to be much more favourable and edgier than previous two films.

Shrek Forever After Movie Review

When I found out that a fourth Shrek movie was being made, it made me frown because it seemed pretty needless, especially that the last movie was such a bore. But then again, if you take the storyline into consideration, this becomes a fitting final chapter to formally close the Shrek series. The movie is originally entitled SHREK FOREVER AFTER, but in other regions of the world including ours, it is entitled SHREK: THE FINAL CHAPTER, so it’s obvious.

American Virgin Movie Review

Rob Schneider’s oeuvre doesn’t inspire much excitement in the average moviegoer. At most, people expect a dumb movie that might be reasonably funny and raunchy, expectations quickly lowered to match the low ambitions carried by films like Deuce Bigelow. But I imagine that even the most forgiving of moviegoers would have trouble lowering their expectations enough to make American Virgin seem in any way palatable. It’s just an awful film through and through, amazingly lowering the bar for Rob Schneider pictures.

The Back-up Plan Movie Review

Singer-actress Jennifer Lopez hits the big screen with her rom-com comeback in “The Back-Up Plan” since we saw her last in 2006’s “El Cantante” and “Bordertown”. She’s famed for her perfect figure, but in this movie, she’s curvier and more voluptuous than ever playing Zoe the pregnant pet store owner.
