I leave for Germany tomorrow so I thought I would drop this off for you all. This is the trailer to a film I literally thought of on the spot. I felt I had to make something so I decided to do this. I will have 4 or 5 shots to put in extra to build the story a little, but the film will definitely be up.check the video for the date! thanks everyone for reading and see you all next week!
In Alfred Hitchcock’s
earlier career, he still made many great films. Saboteur is without a doubt one
of them. It is sharp, intelligent, clever and most of all, filled with great
Hitchcock suspense. The performances from Robert
Cummings and Priscilla Lane were
delightfully Hitchcockian and the film’s plot is simply smart. Once more, an innocent
man is running from society in a Hitchcock film and this motif of Hitchcock’s
auteur still goes nicely. With some moments of heart and eccentricity, “Saboteur”
is another great Mystery & suspense film.
The film is stale in most parts, and truly lacking an
interesting story. Despite Johnny Depp’s solid performance and little comedy
moments, the film has nothing special to offer and will likely leave you
bored. We follow a journalist in this
biopic who travels to San Juan to work at a Newspaper company. You often forget it is a biopic film with it's staleness. The film may
have some moments of humour, but the film feels like it has no goal or end.
This is definitely worth skipping for your next visit to the cinema, and that
is all I can say.
If you are wondering what one of the best films, you will
find this year is this is one. Enchanting is an excellent word to describe the
picturesque quality to its cinematography and wholesomely beautiful story.
Never have I had so much respect for Owen
Wilson on screen, which is likely his best performance of his career. I am
quite new to Woody Allen, I must say
his direction and writing is fantastic here, and I can see were the acclaim
comes from. This film stands out from the blockbusters and CGI films of the
recent years, which makes it a great experience.
I decided to make this post to write about my love of CGI animated
movies. I have realised that animated films have not degraded in quality over
the years and some end up being magnificent. Over the past few years, CGI
animation has been growing insanely popular were now we have something like 15
animated films in a year. With the great technological advancements, titles
such as “Toy Story 3” and “How to Train Your Dragon” show that it is an
excellent medium and now animation is not a thing just for kids, but for
everyone. Animation to me is an art. Although not on the same level as film, I
still love it so.
Directed by: :
Jennifer Yuh Nelson
Jennifer Yuh Genre: Animation, Family, Comedy Runtime: 86 Minutes Was it enjoyable? Yes. Is it a worthy sequel? Definitely! The sequel to the lovable "Kung Fu Panda" is surprisingly vibrant with its humour, crisp animation and cliché, yet admirable plot. The film is considerably short, and you will probably wish it were longer, but in its 86 minute runtime, you get quite an action-packed little adventure with the overweight, panda and his friends. DreamWorks have made a good lot of animated films now, and the Panda of films are some of their best. This film should be enjoyable by all ages.
You can think of Insidious as the cinematic version of Paranormal Activity. With lavishing cinematography and a few thrills, the film is likely to scare you out of you r wits, especially with that terrific music work. However, the film still feels average with some of its stupidity in how it unfolds towards the end. Some of the thrilling things that happen are quite foolish, but bearable.
Directed by: Wes Craven Genre: Horror, Comedy Runtime: 102 Minutes Wes Craven’s
little horror adventure is rather stupid, but is not all bad. You get soem few cheap thrills and plenty of corny comedy along with it. Fool (Brandon Adams), an African-American
teen, breaks into the home of the wealthy landlords who evicted his family from
a ghetto tenement. A fortune in gold coins is rumoured to exist inside, but
Fool discovers that the mansion is a chamber of horrors presided over by a pair
of incestuous, serial killer siblings (Everett
McGill and Wendy Robie).
“You've got to ask yourself one
question: Do I feel lucky? Well, do ya, punk?” This quote would soon
become renown from the mouth of Clint
Eastwood as Dirty Harry himself. Don
Siegel excellently directed this crime drama and the gripping plot was very
exuberant. The film being released in1971 is one of the earliest ‘cop team up’
films, and later ones like “Lethal Weapon” would come. I love the concept of
cops after thugs and criminals and it makes for an exciting film. You get
plenty of action, nice bits of humour and an excellent thrill ride from “dirty
Harry” and his escapades and Eastwood’s performance will make you remember this
film for quite some time.

This is a very old review that for the sake that I have not put up a review in while, I shall put up this one. The grammar will be weaker, and my points and language won't be as good as what I do now. So for the sake of humour, have a read at this. In addition, it is a wonderfully funny Laurel and Hardy film.
Every great director started somewhere, and for Peter Jackson, it was at a cheaply made
fun horror movie. It is fun, absurd and not exactly original, but seeing
Jackson acting himself is hard not to enjoy. If you are in to the gross-out
kind of gore, “Bad Taste” is the movie for you. Filled with zombies and English
and I believe, Australian actors, the film is a wild and strange trip.
In the 90’s, Disney redeemed their status of being a great
animation studio with films like “Beauty and the Beast” and “Aladdin”. “The
Lion King” was among their hits in the 90’s and to this day, it is a
beautifully crafted piece of work. With delightful charm and a sincere story,
it is hard not to like the film. Seeing it in 3D, and in the cinema for that
matter, bring back memories of childhood, which makes Disney an important
company- because it makes childhoods all the merrier. Lion King is an undeniable classic.
Never has ballet ever been so intriguing to me. “Black Swan”
is a beautifully crafted film that will either emotionally move you or hate it.
For me, it is the emotionally moving part. The film is so touching and Natalie Portman’s performance was
nothing short of breath taking. The year 2010 was a reasonably promising year
and this is one of the best from it. There is a great collaboration of actors
and great direction from Darren
Aronofsky in this melodramatically beautiful film.
You are probably wondering why I would even bring the film
to my attention and review it never mind watching it. Well, my curiosity put me
to it and I had to see how bad it was and what exactly creator Tom Six done. Are you wondering what
the worst of this year is? It is right here in this disgusting display of
artless tasteless cinema. Tom Six is easily a very disturbed man
and in this pointless violent and brutal shocker, you will only be turning your
head every five minutes.
Historical, controversial, comical, surreal, satirical,
disorientating, daring, exciting, exhilarating; the list can go on of ways to
describe this film. When watching Stanley
Kubrick’s adaption of Anthony
Burgess’s Novel, you are witnessing one of the greatest films of all time.
Perhaps only through my eyes, but this is definitely among the greats. Full of
artistic brilliance and visual images that you will not find in a film before
it like it, Kubrick’s careful direction makes this one very exciting film. You get one of the best cinematic experiences
when watching the film and it truly defines film as an art. This is a must-see
for film lovers of all kinds.
original, and it pretty much is a generic comedy, but at the same time, you cannot
help but enjoy the senseless plot. Taking the idea of having hard-ass bosses
and the desire to kill them is interesting and although many of the things we
see are not original, the film is still cleverly put together. Seth Gordon, the director knew what he
was doing here partially and the film while you won’t find the meaning of life,
is still a pretty fun comedy.
Well my giant horror marathon has come to an end after 35 reviews and about 40 film viewings. Now I can say I won't have good dreams for a while. The horror genre is great in many ways. Out of the four main emotions, that cinema can bring to you, being laughter, sadness, happiness and scares; horror excels in suspending your disbelief and taking you into frightful journeys. Many horror films are picked on for not being versatile enough and being filled with 'cheap' scares, like the "Paranormal Activity" series, which in some ways it is. However, the genre is to "horrify" and "scare" you. Many horror films excel in mixed emotions and intertextuality making it a very fine genre. There is no such thing as the greatest genre but horror still has many great films within it. Here are my top 15 all-time favourite horror films.
So here we are, another month another blogger. this month I have chosen someone who I had intentions of doing last month, but didn't. So here he is, James Rodrigues a good film critic with some very interesting opinions. Relatively new to blogging, 'Rodders' here has few followers and deserves a little bit of attention for his efforts.See his blog here.
my horror marathon has ended, I will look over my favourite horror monsters and
villains in no order. All these characters are either terrifying, psychotic,
intimidating, creepy or just plain great to see on screen. Here they are!
Actor: Robert Englund
Film: A Nightmare on Elm Street (1984)
has become a horror icon and his knife-glove has become a famous motif. Robert Englund portrays Kruger
excellently and he is a very intimidating horror character.
Stephen King’s horror novel “The
Shining” may differ from this eerie adaption, but the film is something very special.
Exploring insanity and going psycho, “The Shining” is a very thrilling and
unforgettable. Stanley Kubrick, the
genre explorer did an excellent job with this film using a variety of fresh
camera angles, editing and even effects. When watching the film, it may confuse
you at times and I believe it the real goal of it. You will pick up quickly
what is happening and it will take you on one big thrill ride.
