When he isn't writing for the prestigious site you currently find yourself reading, Andrew is busy either writing for EatSleepLiveFilm or posting pictures of dogs in hats on Facebook. He fell in love with movies after a double-bill of The Empire Strikes Back & Return of The Jedi at the tender age of four. His favourite film is Goodfellas, his favourite director is Martin Scorsese, his favourite actor is Paul Newman. Caught you off guard there, eh? You were expecting Robert De Niro or something.
Gipsy Danger has a few tricks up its sleeve in this new Pacific Rim banner - namely a gigantic saw blade - which it looks ready to use on the advancing Kaiju.
By now you have probably encountered the debate surrounding Star Trek Into Darkness, namely the Alice Eve nude scene. Some see it as sexist and reductive, others don't see the big deal.
Damon Lindelof took ownership of the issue and apologised. That probably would have been enough, the issue could then die out with everyone chalking it down to an error in judgment.
Until, that is, JJ Abrams appeared on The Conan O'Brien Show to address the issue personally. Initially joking, he revealed there was a similar nude scene in the film featuring Benedict Cumberbatch's "John Harrison" having a shower. If this was an attempt to redress the balance, it was a huge miscalculation. If anything it only draws further attention to the wrong-headed nature of the scene.
We have already heard tell of Joss Whedon's plans to introduce Pietro and Wanda Maximoff, alias Quicksilver and Scarlet Witch, into The Avengers 2. He has plans for the characters and the way they will impact the core team, it seems like a well thought out, character-focused approach. Marvel are not in the habit of throwing out endless superhero cameos to pad out their movie, they choose wisely and have proven themselves keenly interested in putting character first.
What did we do to deserve this?
It seemed only right to cap our Fast & Furious franchise retrospective off with a special, extensive review for the latest entry and how I feel it fits into the series. There will be mild spoilers but nothing earth-shaking will be revealed.
