The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn, Part2 (2012)

The second half of the Breaking Dawn story concludes the 5-film run of the Twilight franchise.

Breaking Dawn, Part 2 is in many ways more interesting than Part 1, but it still feels rather weak. […]

The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn, Part1 (2011)

As the story of Bella moves towards its finale, the franchise’s weaknesses accumulate. With Breaking Dawn, Part 1 being weaker than the previous Twilight films, the plot is often treading water, making this one of those films in serious need of a fast-forward button. […]

Underworld: Awakening (2012)

The fourth film in the franchise offers a new angle, but misses many opportunities. Neglecting the writing in favour of the action, the team delivers a film that feels at least mildly unsatisfying. […]

Underworld (2003)

The first film in the franchise by the same name, Underworld is a very good-looking film placing its interesting characters in a very well-constructed world. This may be popcorn entertainment, but it is good popcorn entertainment. […]
