It sort of worked for GI Joe, it worked with Transformers, but can Hasbro’s Battleship board game really be adapted into a decent, enjoyable movie?
I have recently been lucky enough to be approached by production company No Restrictions to review their 2009 film One Hour Fantasy Girl. There’s a link at the bottom of the review direct to the film, so why not check it out
Sometimes it’s best not to know much about a film before you see it. The Cabin in the Woods, Joss Whedon and Drew Goddard’s latest collaboration, is now quite possibly my favourite film of 2012; perhaps because I didn’t know what to expect (don’t worry, no plot points here)
Liam Neeson gets a bad rep at Movie Writing HQ; is his return to the role of Zeus in Wrath of the Titans enough to win my approval (something he’s not really had since Love Actually)
Having neglected my mission to see every film from 1001 Movies to Watch Before You Die somewhat, I thought it was about time that I got back to it with The Hurt Locker on blu-ray.
To coincide with the holidays, there are a suitable number of family films out in cinemas at the moment. Tarsem Singh’s Mirror Mirror has been subject to masses a fair amount of advertising but is it a new, interesting take on a fairy tale or just a tired recycling of a story we all already know?
To celebrate the release of the highly anticipated The Hunger Games, we review our favourite films featuring strong female characters. Have a listen and let us know what you think!
The summer blockbuster season is quickly approaching, so here are my top five anticipated hits for the warmer months.
Celine Sciamma’s Tomboy has received great critical acclaim, as well as winning a couple of awards. Does this French drama live up to its expectations?
After loving Lee Pace in the delightful Pushing Daisies, Kieran (from the Movie Talking podcasts) recommended and lent to me The Fall. Promising to be incredibly beautiful and incredibly imaginative, I had high hopes for Tarsem Singh’s fairy tale
The Burma Conspiracy promises “an explosive, high-octane thriller” – does it deliver such thrills, or does it just try and be something it’s not?
Aardman are back with another impressive stop-motion animation, voiced by an all star cast (even including Brian Blessed!), with The Pirates! In An Adventure With Scientists. Do the studios manage to continue their winning streak with wonderful animations, or is it just another 3D gimmick?
