G-Force (Trailer 2)

G-Force (Trailer 2)

This latest trailer for Disney’s G-Force feels almost like a legitimate spy movie, with plenty of covert gadgets and Underworld’s Bill Nighy as arch villain; that is, until the fart jokes start.

Finger UFC

Finger UFC

Diamonds of Metro Valley

With a gun-toting robo-lizard, a Mad Max-style car chase and hammy acting, The Diamonds of Metro Valley is so bad we have to watch it; the film will be completed in a few months.

Free: Bang! Heroes
