After posting the link to Christopher Walken for President in Readers Lives #2 it got me thinking, which actor would I like to see as President…well since I’m Scottish it’s a bit unfair of me to choose, but jokingly, I like Arnie for it, seriously I do believe Martin Sheen … [Read More]
Summary=Sharp, clever and quick dialogue between well written characters in a hugely entertaining movie with loads of action. Very true to the original series, yet a bit darker with more complexity to some of the characters.
Title=Voices of Iraq
Summary=Strong, insightful documentary. Whatever your views on editing footage, the resulting film shows a strong, intelligent and understanding Iraqi people. A people who show the contradictions in the news we are receiving, and give a clear voice to why the fighting is still in Iraq. A voice that should really be heard. Hard hitting, funny, thoughtful and emotional. A superb documentary.
Title=36 Quai des Orfèvres
Summary=Impressive cast with a fantastic performance from Depardieu. The cinematography and score are superbly combined and with the strong script makes for a really good movie, particularly the opening and the various raids. Let down in places by a poor plot device and some weak emotional scenes from Auteuil. Well worth watching.
While the MPAA continues to moan and complain about piracy hurting them, they also continue to pretend that high ticket prices, long pre-movie advertising commercial times and bad films have anything to do with the current slump the box office is in. But the head of Canada’s biggest theater chain … [Read More]
Someone has way too much time on their hands. Smoking is becoming a bigger and bigger issue in North America. Me personally… I don’t smoke. I think smoking is as dumb as shoving a fork up your ass for jollies (only the fork up your ass is less bad for … [Read More]
IMDB are carrying a rather insightful article on the problems of Hollywood and current cinema, leading off on the problems of Cinderella Man, Nikki Rocco, Universal Pictures distribution chief, says: …the studio is going “back to the drawing board” following the box-office failure [of Cinderella Man]…”Good movies are supposed to … [Read More]
Summary=Scary, dark, and full of surprises and scares. A strong cast with realism rooted throughout the script and performances gives for an excellent horror film. Missing a little more depth (pardon the pun) but still a superb movie from Neil Marshall. You’ll be scared and on edge. A must see.
Title=Twist of Faith
Summary=One of the most powerful documentaries I’ve seen. Painful and tough to watch, but there are personal rewards to be seen and hope to be gleaned. Very intimate, personal, and real. Wonderfully edited and pulled together to tell a tough story of a surprising normal family still affected by sexual abuse.
Summary=Good although if you’ve seen the original it’s just not as good. Great performance from Connelly and good support. Excellent location and sets, but the second half just does everything too big for this slower paced horror\thriller. Not a great remake, but a good movie on it’s own.
Summary=Good light, entertainment. This is a popcorn movie and not something meaty or thoughtful. Well paced, good fun and funny. Chiklis, Evans and McMahon are great to watch. Although it’s not a Batman or Spiderman, it’s not as bad as it’s made out.
In Hollywood it seems there is never a moment when a good “Is he gay?” debate isn’t going on. As a culture we’re obsessed with our celebrities. As a culture we’re also obsessed with sexuality. Add to that the fact that as a culture we’re also obsessed with gossip. Put … [Read More]
