Film Review No.390: Star Wars – Episode VII – The Force Awakens

Star Wars Episode 7 The Force Awakens 1

Well this has been a long time coming. Yes, the time is finally upon us to all bask in the resplendent majesty of a new review on The Film Dump. Yes, I realise it has been a few weeks. Yes, I realise some of you may have taken to getting film recommendations from… shall we say… lesser critics. But know that I am here for you. In your most desperate hour… I am your only hope, for I have seen The Force Awakens and I am here to tell you that it is… pretty decent. Click below for the words about the film. I’ll try to avoid major spoilers and anything too specific.

Shame there’s only been 3 previous Star Wars films.


Film Review No.357: The People Vs George Lucas

People vs George Lucas-1

Remember George Lucas? He was that guy that messed up Star Wars like a jerk and should be hated for it. Also, he made Star Wars so he’s pretty cool. He also made Howard: A New Breed of Hero which was terrible and so he’s terrible. Oh, and he wrote raiders of the Lost Ark which is fecking awesome. And thus you see the conflict at the heart of many a nerd and the subject of today’s film, The People vs George Lucas. Click the link below for an awesome review… or the worst bloody thing you’ve ever read.

In a few years I’ll remaster this with, like, way more digital Jawas or something

The Weekend Dump: Star Wars of Worldcraft… huh?


In recent weeks a number of rumours had been swirling around the internet. I should clarify, seeing as the internet is made up of at east 30% rumours) that these rumours are to do with the release date of Star Wars Episode VII. Many have questions if it would be ready for the previously touted Summer 2015 release date. This has been fuelled by announcements of JJ Abrams and Lawrence “The reason Empire Strikes Back was so good” Kasdan rewriting the script and the fact that they’re still running highly publicised casting calls. Earlier this week the announcement came that That Star Wars Episode VII would be released on December 18th 2015. Which, the eagle eyed amongst you may have noticed isn’t summer. The more nerdy of you may have also noticed, this is the day Duncan Jones’ Warcraft film comes out. Uh oh!

In this post, I show just how much of a Warcraft fanboy I am!

Let Us Compile A Top (And Bottom) 5 List!

Seeing as it is The Film Dump’s first ever birthday today I thought I’d put together two fun little top fives. The first will be a top 5 of my favourite films that I have watched over the last year. The other will be the absolute worst films I have watched over this last year. I’ll be honest, thanks to my love of a good ran I’ve probably seen more bad films over this last year than I normally would have. Obviously it’s all in the pursuit of providing some form of entertainment for anyone that happens to stumble across this blog whilst searching for pictures of Chris Evans with his shirt off. So, click the link for the best & worst of The Film Dump’s first year!

Maybe I should make a mixtape too

Movie Review No.67: Star Wars – Episode VI – Return Of The Jedi (2011 S.E.)

So this is it. The final (current) installment of the Star Wars Saga. We’ve seen wars. We’ve seen stars. We’ve seen wars that take place in the stars, Star Wars if you will. We’ve seen Anakin be drawn into the Darkside. We’ve seen Luke Skywalker learn about the force and become a hero. We’ve heard the phrases ‘I’ve got a bad feeling about this” and “Search your feelings, you know it to be true.” about 4 billion times. We’ve also seen just how difficult George Lucas finds it to internalise conflict… “Nooooooooooo!” for example. Also see “No Noo Nooooo!” and as this film features “No…. Noooooaahhhhhhh!!!” Click the link.

Awwww shiiit! It’s The Empire Strikes Back bay-beh! Where’s yo curly mustache at? hmmmm. That was out of place. Anyway. The Empire Strikes Back is the best Star Wars film by quite some way and if you don’t agree with that you can go suck a Bantha dick. I cannot fathom just how many times I have seen this film. What makes this film so great? Read on to find out.

Execute review 66. … That would have worked better if this was Revenge Of The Sith.
