Richard reviews Walk the Line

Title=Walk the Line
Summary=There’s nothing but praise for this movie, the actors give excellent performances individually and together showing great chemistry, and strongly backed by a very good cast. Then there’s the superb writing and that very satisfying circular story, filled with superbly visualised shots. The music is superb and gives such weight to that opening sequence. This is a stunningly good film, if you weren’t a Cash fan before, watch out.

Richard reviews Match Point

Title=Match Point
Summary=Not liking Woody Allen I was surprised that I liked this movie, and just how good it is. It’s very real with some excellently scripted moments, and the turning point of this movie is a huge surprise, nothing that you’d expect from Allen. Johansson is very strong as is the rest of the British supporting cast, although Rhys-Meyers does disappoint somewhat. Excellent movie though.
