First, second AND third time’s the charm for Pixar. The magic is most certainly back in Toy Story 3. We cut loose with one of our longest reviews ever and discuss topics such as the creepy wonky-eyed baby doll, the garbage incinerator that is sure to terrorize children worldwide, and the first justifiable F-Bomb that should have been in a Pixar movie (F-U Lotso!)

THERE IS NO PLAN B. After years of rumours, false starts and fanboy daydreams, Hannibal and Co. finally grace the silver screen.

This week we review the big-screen adaptation of everyone’s favourite four ex-special forces mercenaries, and we love it when Joe Carnahan’s plan comes together! Check out our VIDEO review for an indepth look at this dynamite action picture.

The answer to the age-old question is finally revealed: Who watched the Watchmen? The Armchair Directors did, as we review the hernia-inducing Ultimate Cut of Zach Snyder’s attempt to film the unfilmable movie.
