The movies you MUST check out whilst the blog's away!
Although I am going to delay the blog's hiatus a little bit later into next week to fit in a few more impending exciting bits of news and reviews, the hiatus is inevitably coming. What can you do to pass the time? Well, for one, you can try to catch as many of these five exciting films as possible before I pass verdicts on them once we're back...
THE CABIN IN THE WOODS (4.5/5)- As anyone who read my world exclusive first review of this gripping, innovative horror will know, The Cabin In The Woods is really something to be savoured for its originality. Despite any reservations you might have about its fledging genre, give this one a try and you will not regret it! (Out Now)
BATTLESHIP (3/5)- Okay, I'll admit it: I have a soft spot for the predictable summer popcorn blockbusters like Battleship. This isn't anywhere near on a par with the epic scale of the Transformers trilogy, yet you'll still have a fun time with it if you have time and suspension of disbelief aplenty to spare. (Out Now)
AVENGERS ASSEMBLE (5/5)- Anyone who hasn't been living under a rock for the past four years will know that Marvel Studios have been building towards their blockbuster Avengers team-up for ages, and thankfully this epic finale really does live up to the hype. Bring on The Amazing Spider-Man and The Dark Knight Rises as competition, then! (Out Now)
DARK SHADOWS- You may not have heard much about Tim Burton and Johnny Depp's latest collaboration, and their recent efforts like Alice In Wonderland may not have set much of a high precedent to match. That said, Dark Shadows is looking like a fantastic fantasy comedy that packs all the punches with its celebrity cast to keep audiences such as yourselves both on the edge of your seat and in stitches.

MEN IN BLACK III- Finally we've got the return of the team-up of Tommy Lee Jones and Will Smith as the Men In Black to kick start the Summer of Film. MIB3 is set to be a brilliant time-travel comedy full of laughs and thrills galore, and a neat finale to the iconic trilogy. (May 25th)
