Forbes' Highest Paid Actresses 2012-13



In Hollywood, salary is all about power and influence; how much an actor/actress is paid reflects their box-office potential and how much interest they generate in a movie. 

As a result, Forbes' Magazine's annual list of highest paid actresses is a great way to gauge who has the power in Tinseltown in the last twelve months. You can also check out the highest paid actors in my post from a couple of weeks back. Give 'em a read and let me know what you think!

Film Review: The Wolverine

Logan's feeling kind of blue

Director: James Mangold
Starring: Hugh Jackman, Rila Fukushima, Svetlana Khodchenkova, Famke Janssen
Running time: 136 minutes


Marvel's angst-ridden animal, The Wolverine is back for his second solo-outing. Set after the events of Brett Ratner's X-Men: The Last Stand (2006), this latest movie sees Logan (Hugh Jackman) heading to Japan to say goodbye to an old friend. So, how does it stack up? Here's my review of The Wolverine.

Rank the Films: X-Men



As any regular reader of feeling fuzzier will know, lists are pretty darn nifty. We have a profound appreciation for straight-up lists. This is the thinking behind Rank the Films, a regular feature that pulls apart the pros and cons of a series of films, ranking them in order of bad to good. 

In order to conicide with the release of Marvel's latest X-Men film, The Wolverine, I thought it was a good time to take a look at the franchise's back catalogue of films and settle upon which is the best and which is the worst.

"So how do you keep a secret from the World's Greatest Detective? Well, do you know? You stick it right under him. Right up under his long pointy nose, and wait" - The Joker


With the fourth incarnation of the PlayStation due to hit stores this holiday season, I thought it was a good time to reflect upon some of my own most cherished and memorable gaming experiences with the PlayStation 3

Each entry into this brand new column will give you my thoughts on some of my favourite PS3 games and the enjoyable and grabbing gaming experiences they have brought me. 

After focusing on Uncharted 2 and L.A. Noire in Parts #1 and #2, Part #3 is all about the highly-acclaimed Rocksteady superhero-caper, Batman: Arkham City.

Cue the second blog post in a month that discusses Man of Steel, a sequel and crafting the Justice League...

Film Review: This Is The End

"Whoa careful, I don't want to break a nail"

James Franco, Jonah Hill, Seth Rogen, Jay Baruchel, Danny McBride and Craig Robinson play exaggerated versions of themselves in This Is The End, an adult comedy centred around the end of days. Crude, brash and utterly unashamed to rip the piss out of itself, This Is The End sees this talented gang of comedians score something of an own goal.

Film Review: Despicable Me 2

"Duuuude, I am so stoned right now"

Released in 2010, Despicable Me was something of a surprise success when it roared through the box-office and raked in $540 million. The villainous antics of 'evil mastermind' Gru and his three adoptive kids Margo, Edith and Agnes resonated with kids and adults alike. As a result, a sequel was near-enough inevitable and here it is; Despicable Me 2.

Film Review: Pacific Rim

"Okay everyone, time to do our best slow motion bad-ass walk like we practised"


Guillermo del Toro pitches monstrous creatures against gigantic mechs in this science-fiction epic, Pacific Rim. With mind-blowing visuals, impressive sci-fi imagery and a solid understanding of what makes an audience punch the air and whoop with joy, Pacific Rim is one of the stand-out blockbusters from this year.

Voice of Reason #13: Haters Gonna' Hate


Man of Steel may be raking the big bucks across the globe, but critics haven't been as impressed as the audience- with a Rotten Tomatoes score of 56%, Man of Steel is classed as 'rotten', as well as being outstripped by World War Z, Fast and Furious 6 and Iron Man 3. So, this week, we ask this; "Is Man of Steel getting an unfair bashing?" and "Why is this blockbuster season so filled with hate?"

Film Review: The Lone Ranger

Tonto was becoming increasingly jealous of
the Lone Ranger's cool mask

Starring Armie Hammer and Johnny 'Jack Sparrow' Depp as vigilante duo The Lone Ranger and Tonto, this latest Disney action-adventure flick is a fun, energetic and zany Western that all ages can appreciate from director Gore Verbinski.

Zach Snyder's Man of Steel

The release of Man of Steel (and its huge box-office success) has left movie lovers and aficionados all pondering one thing; is this the start of something bigger and greater? Are DC about to 'do a Marvel' and get all of their heroes onto the same page?

2013's Tomb Raider reboot

Ever since Square Enix released their reboot of the Tomb Raider game franchise in March to widespread critical acclaim, speculation has been building as to whether this would lead to a new film franchise; critics and fans alike were big fans of the gritty realism Lara Croft's latest console adventure offered and so talk of film that reboots her silver screen likeness has built in recent months.
