Film Review: The Imitation Game

1d42c26fe114da7e624307d7a06d0ee8Some movies just seem to be designed to be nominated for everything during an awards season, even if it wasn’t its makers’ intention –usually, the big producers are the ones that make sure the films go that way. Continue reading

Film Review: The Hobbit The Battle of the Five Armies

The-Hobbit-The-Battle-of-the-Five-Armies3Reviewing a film like The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies is not like reviewing any other. Because this is not a regular film: it is the end of an era, one that began on 10 December 2001, when The Fellowship of the Ring was released. Since then, New Zealander director Peter Jackson has taken us on a journey through the stories of J. R. R. Tolkien, a story that is now coming to an end. Continue reading

Film Review: Dracula Untold

dracula-untold-5If there is a lesson I have learned from watching Dracula Untold, it is this: never watch a movie simply because you find the main actor physically, erm, compelling. It usually ends up in disaster. Continue reading

Film Review: Populaire

populaireOh, French comedies. What is not to like about them? I am lucky enough to have grown up with a Francophile mother who showed me at an early age the entire filmography of Louis de Funes and the magnificent Les Visiteurs. Continue reading

Film Review: Noah, Yet Another Controversial Movie

Noah“Of course there’s liberties, I mean, we’re making a movie here. If you read the four chapters that the Noah story takes place in, Noah doesn’t even speak. How are you going to cast Russell Crowe and not have him talk? Noah’s wife and his sons’ three wives aren’t even named in the Bible.”

Transformers: the Extinction of Acting

Transformers PosterThere is something I need to confess: I went to see Transformers: Age of Extinction with a preconceived idea.

” I don’t wanna die at James Franco’s house”

Real-life bros movies seem to be a genre that never disappoints – even if I just made up that genre. When the actors have a good relationship off-screen, the chemistry transcends the film. Just think of the Avengers movies, or anything that has at least two members of the Pitt-Clooney-Damon combo. It’s always just the actors using different names, but you can tell it’s them.
