Only took you a couple of years to pick him up, 'Pist.
Bit slow on that front. :p

But good review as per norm, Matt. Keep on feeding me yummy movie review goodness that takes 3 minutes of my day to read.

This is everything I had hoped for. One of my best and oldest online friends getting paid for his work and a happy-go-lucky forum thread reacting to it! :D

Also yeah, based on trailers I actually thought it was somehow connected to the Taken franchise.

It's a safe bet that this one is totally skippable.

This is a good review, and I'm glad that the Escapist is still going to do movie reviews. My only concern is that a written article is... somewhat of a step back. With the rise of the video review (particularly Youtubers) I wonder if there is enough of an audience among the Escapist to support written reviews like this, regardless of the quality of the review. We've been pretty spoiled by MovieBob in that regard.
I totally concur. We need to see Marter doing videos in his trademarked skirts, rum filled coconut-goblet...and fez.

Good review, well done on getting the gig! Hope you stay on if this is the quality to be expected, I'm quite happy to see it :D

so this is the guy they replaced moviebob with? I'm sure he's great but the escapist is really headed in a bad direction..
Marter is one of our own, you can't go in a better direction than that.
Agreed, I see this as a plus.

captcha seems to be against me on this: "since when" . Perhaps I should defer to the captcha...

Well count me as one who prefers the written review. I don't like the video trend though in general. I'd rather quickly read through freely than sit through a video with a fixed pace. I find it only worth watching in video if there's an entertainment aspect to the video - rather than just a narration of the written review - and most don't do so.


Anyway this seemed well-written and I loved the term "Action Neeson", quite suitable. Optimistic about these reviews.

How can you tell? They don't have ban meters on their profiles.

If they are fake, why do certain users get special rule-breaking privileges?


Edit: yes they're fake bans. The Techies like to have fun sometimes.

It's like watching Oprah in here.

You get a ban, and you get a ban, and YOU get a ban! Bans for everybody! So generous!

Anyway, as far as reviews go... this definitely was one of those. I firmly believe the author did indeed watch the movie, and that his opinions are factually his own. The words seem to be unique, the spelling and grammar were adequate, and no deeply-rooted hatred for the audience seemed to permeate up through the bowels of the reviewer in order to escape through his fingers.

All-in-all, I give it a solid Beige/Beige.
 

Cpt. Slow

Great news everybody!

Action Neeson is what I'm in for. Let me shelf out some money Liam, you deserve it.

Run All Night - Keep Running, Neeson

Another generic Liam Neeson action-thriller. How can one not be taken for a walk among the tombstones by the non-stop onslaught of them?

as the OG Martyr here, i can say beyond a doubt that you've spelled martyr wrong. cinemartyr doesn't look as marketable though.

Seems like a generic action movie.
But while Taken has worn out I think the Action Neeson kind of works if you don't expect a Nolan sort of movie.
If it comes to Amazon Prime I will give it a go.

Not too bad a first outing, though these days a Liam Neeson movie is practically "fish in a barrel" level of difficulty when it comes to reviewing. Here's to hoping that we see lots more.

Also, this comment thread... oh good Lord, I've hurt myself laughing. Help me.

Who the hell is Marter?
This [http://www.escapistmagazine.com/forums/read/326.871336-2-50-Reviews-Tremors-1990] the hell is Marter. He's been doing reviews in the User Reviews section for a while, and has now ascended to godhood paid content contribution.

Ahaha.

Oh, I wish I had checked this thread earlier... Banning half of the site's staff. At least we still have some people with a sense of humour.

Anyway, the review...

Was... A review. XD

I can't say much. I'm out of practice with written film reviews. I guess the film wasn't so great...

The review itself was good. (probably). XD

We needed this thread to remedy the generic premise of this film, and we must thank our new ruler Marter for it.

I'm waiting on the "User was hit in the face with a firetruck" ban, myself.

OT: Grats Marter! And nice review by the way. Seems Liam can really make almost anything good.
