The DVD Archive: As we have already seen an increase in the amount of fans thta this franchise has coming out of its behind, I would be very surprised if that was the case, and as I’m pressing my foot down to the  Status Quo, if there are no disregarded elements within this instalment, then we don’t see any reason not to include it in the “Hives Top 10”. Here’s the Trailer…

The DVD Archive: We believe that this film will d remarkably well over the next few months, especially as the previous type of film like this one have been far and few between. The whole film is well put together and strengthened on the premise that something really evil is about to call on the female casting, to dish out some very hardcore body damage…Enjoy.

Jet Li stars as a sorcerer who discovers her true identity and battles to save the man’s soul.Written by Anonymous

DVD Archive: Yeah, okay, so Jet Li is back in the action seat in this great Martial Arts Action Thriller that will have your heart skipping to the slightest death defying stunts that you are shown through this presentation. The action scenes are something else, other than the true ingredients that make the difference between life and death…

6 Souls – 2013

Posted on


6 Souls is a devishly new concept in its wake before being presented to the viewer. Its not the kind of film that you would watch for the fun of it, but you would, however, watch it because of its “Scare Factor”, and as it stands, we reckon a huge “Factor 8” at least will materialise from this gripping Horror when it is released at cinemas…

The Rift (2012)

Before he could tell anyone, he mysteriously vanished. Many years later budding physics student Dean Hollister and his discredited physics teacher have become obsessed with the same mystery. What had been a rare phenomenon is suddenly happening all over the world. The day it happens is a regular night shift for Dean at his mother’s diner. Black rifts appear in the sky. Behind those rifts, something is moving. It’s watching us. Written by Vantis Pictures

DVD Archive: Initially, by the viewing of the Trailer, we have every confidence in the film being something to write home about. While some may not share the same view as us, we found that the characters building up in this movie are set and tidy of giving the viewer every bit as an entertaining evening as any other in its same category.

Coming Soon…Part One

Here at “The Red Hive Project”, we look at many entertaining products everyday of the week. Every now and again, some of the little entertainment becomes ‘Big Entertainment’, and so, we take it upon ourselves as a “Hive”, to let you guys know what we think…And think we do, while viewing Films, Playing Games and listening to Music. For us, seeing a film that has been confirmed for ‘Release’  before its Premiere is pretty cool – as you can imagine – though these are less often “Reviewed” or, it is just a simple case that we haven’t got around to watching it for “Review” yet.

Over the past six months or so, we have had quite a selection of “Reviewing” material, including “The Teacher”, “Oblivion”, “A Good Day To Die Hard” and “Beautiful Creatures”. From these we have viewed two of the titles and not even put pen to…Sorry, fingers to QWERTY. Ha.

Promising to put this right over the next 3 months of our ‘Probation’, we will bring you a lot of Film Stuff and a scent similar to that of Popcorn. We will bring you something Special, as only “The Red Hive’s The DVD Archive” can.


This-Is-The-End-PosterThis Is The End, certificate 15, is going to be one of the funniest films of 2013 so far…Which, when you look at the Casting for the 107 minute film, you would shake with absolute certainty. Aloft the entire Casting on This Is The End, we have some Celebrities within the minion circles, too, so it really does promise to show us some remarkable team work as James Franco, Paul Rudd, Emily Watson, SethRogen, Jonah Hill and Jason Segel come together for the ‘Apocalypse’ of the world.

After we saw a peek preview of the Movie last week, it can be said that the drawn line between “Comedy” and “Vulgarity” is creeping along the line in this hilarious flick…Come on, what do expect, you have an Air Raid shelter with some of the funniest Comedy Acts in the whole of America…What could possibly go wrong?

This Is The End – 2013 Release: 14th May.


World War Z, the first time that we heard of it becoming an idea for a Motion Picture Production, the feeling was an almost weakened sigh as to the length of time that it would take to make such a film. It was between this time of waiting that we were entertained by the likes of Bruce Willis, Lawrence Fishburne  Vin Diesel and Billy Crystal…Do you believe that? It is far from the truth that “World War Z” won’t dance around in your mind a little. It is not far from the truth that it may scar you or make you respond in such a way that is not unknown from the Spaniards and French, especially where the Direction on “Zombie” films is there’s to have!

World War Z comes with a health warning, as do various other films in its Genre. With plenty of ‘Realistic CGI’ pasted across the films content, we also experience the highly detailed visualizations as seen through various Characters’ lives. Excellent film, with a great and strong dialogue that shouldn’t confuse anyone – basically, its “The Walking Dead”, only this version has an American speaking lead.

World War Z is released next month on 21st June. With a Certification of PG-13, the thought is that considering this film is filled with Apocalyptic Chaos and World’s End Drama, it may be that parents who are not sure check this trailer out first.

White House Down screening from 28th June, as well as starring two of greatest actors, Channing Tatum and Jamie Foxx, is the kind of film that comes along once in a while, and one which you will put everything else to one side and make a space for. The 137 movie is presented to the audience with every factor of entertainment thought out, checked and checked again; the working storyline is neither boring in its gapped scenes, nor is it ‘Action Packed’ less than a Classic film in the making.

White House Down is supported by other key stage actors, too, including Jake Weber (Medium Series), James Woods (The Specialist), Peter Jacobson (House Series), all of whom give this film the low balance acting to carry the rest of the movie off. Channing, though of Comedy and Drama productions before this big action movie – G I Joe aside – has the switchable character technique off to a fine art, as his physique alone helps with the association of such a driven character as John Cale. The support in which Jamie Foxx gives to Tatum is exemplary, as is the introduction of James Woods. This is one film which we anticipate to be a blockbuster.

Where much can be said about “White House Down” being a truly epic film, so too can be said about its counterpart “Olympus Is Down” starring a volley of great actors, including Gerard Butler, Morgan Freeman and Aaron Eckhart. Both movies have been rumoured to bring an up-to-date war game to the big screen with unconfirmed acceptances by Bill Murray and Craig Fairbrass! The ‘unconfirmed’ acceptance on both actors was a “Slip of the tongue” at the E3 Show where TreyArch were showing off their newest ‘Shooter’ game. Olympus Is Down started in cinemas (Wednesday) 22nd March 2013.

As Jason Stratham exits “The Transporter” (for now) to allow Chris Vance (Frank Martin) to take the hot seat of those prestigious cars that exceed everyone’s expectations. But, while Stratham is out of the Driving Seat from the High Octane Productions, Jason takes on the ‘Rebuild’ of another wise lethal war machine in “Hummingbird”, which is getting its premiere less than a month after “Parker”, and which received little else than a split-decision on its popularity. With “Hummingbird”, however, it would be mistaken for recompense of the previous production. The story of a broken ex-military war machine taken onto the streets as a down and out, he decides one day that he is going to sort himself out and get back on the path to recovery – but only after he finds himself defenceless in saving someones life that he cares about.

Transporter - The Series

Hummingbird opens in cinemas 28th June 2013.

Explores the early relationship between the renowned psychiatrist and his patient, a young FBI criminal profiler, who is haunted by his ability to empathize with serial killers.


DVD Archive Review – (First Episode): Psychological Intrusion has always remained one of the fundamental traits of a Serial Killer, whether this has been the making of Directors through an entire century of film making or not. That which we see before our eyes, is not necessarily what is going on before our eyes, until such a time as when we conclude that it has indeed happened – or that another independent person of integrity has witnessed that same thing happen. With the new “Hannibal: The Beginning”, we see everything happen through the eyes of Special Agent Will Graham, who has anything but an amazing gift of ‘Seeing’ his assignments being murdered…in the goriest of detail, too.

His superior officer, however, knowing that Will has a condition, but still assigns him to the cases of twelve missing girls – presumed dead, of course – brings Will on board to help crack the case and bring the serial “Abductor” to justice. It is the personal side of Special Agent Graham, however, that becomes delicately complicated when he is paired up with Dr Hannibal Lecter, a man who shows very little sympathy, and yet, assists Will in the cases anyway. Will Special Agent Graham realise his weakest link?

Having watched the forty-five minute first episode through the “Sparkle Network”, we were literally riveted to our seats in the aftermath of the serial killers lame trail of carnage. It was actually realising that the Writer’s and the Director placed the killer in the forefront of the show, as well as introducing a Psychological Detective alongside the killer, that we saw exactly where the storyline was going.

Agent Jack Crawford (Lawrence Fishburne) gives a very well strengthened cast as Special Agent Will Graham’s superior, while side by side, he has this attachment that keeps its distance when both Agent Graham and Doctor Hannibal Lecter do exactly the same thing – which is investigate the intricate parts of the case. Though not a spare tool in the series, the functions of being a Superior Officer well suits Fishburne, only not as a permanent sidekick to the Agent who can rewind and play through the entire crime that took place.

If you haven’t seen “Hannibal: The Beginning”, then it would be highly recommended by us that you do…as soon as possible. Although, we must stress that the series includes some really gory and bloody scenes of violence, but certainly not unlike that of “Dexter” – only better. Sorry Dexter fans, but that is the truth, and maybe one that we should address as thus:

The Dexter Producers attempted desperately to increase the blood loss into the show by making the episodes more ‘Gorified’ in content, while waiting in the wings was this new show of “Hannibal: The Beginning”, that has managed quite easily to pull the rug from under their feet. The bottom line is simple, that “Hannibal: The Beginning” is going to be one of those very successful shows that have people’s mind’s highly wired, charged and begging for more suspense, more gore, more of that Pzazz that can only come from a cop show with the intelligence and integrity that producers and writer’s on this level can create…This is a high rated television show that will blow the viewer’s mind, and this is only the very first episode into the 13 episode series.
