    I, Frankenstein

    "Everything that is wrong with modern Hollywood filmmaking is crammed into the brain and eye-rotting hour and a half of "I, Frankenstein". Grimly rendered, CGI-heavy action; meagre and stupid plot; clichéd situations and dialogue; utterly predictable characters and emotions; awkward, sledge-hammer direction (care of Stuart Beattie), all piled on top of embarrassed-looking, dialled-in acting performances - Aaron Eckhart and Miranda Otto what the hell were you thinking when you signed up to this temple of idiocy?"

    The Warriors

    ★★★★★

    Although outwardly a nihilist, violent, gritty urban thriller, "The Warriors" is a highly political commentary on a decaying social order; a revolutionary political tract (with deeply religious overtones) and a comic book teenage empowerment fantasy, all wrapped up within a self-mythologizing retelling of the Greek Battle of Cunaxa from 401 B.C. Nine members from each of the main street gangs in New York are summonsed to a meeting in Van Cortlandt Park by Cyrus (Roger Hill), the leader of the…
