Zack Snyder kicks off the summer blockbuster season in style with Man of Steel; is it a super origin story? Almost.
You won’t need a cheat code to unlock the magic of Disney’s Wreck-it Ralph.
Now that the end of January is upon us, here’s my final look at the world of film in 2012.
No surprises here: I didn’t like The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey. Mr Jackson, I’d like my three hours back please.
Yann Martel’s Life of Pi was dubbed the unfilmable book, but Ang Lee managed to do a fine job even though I didn’t like it as much everyone else.
An explosion of colour, beautiful effects and a fantastic voice cast unite to form the best, and most surprising, animation of 2012: Rise of the Guardians
Surprisingly, Madagascar 3: Europe’s Most Wanted turned out to be one of the best animations of 2012.
In my attempt to catch up with my incredibly belated reviews, and try to clear the backlog; I’m writing very short reviews on some of the more disappointing films that have come out over the past few months. Next up: Silent Hill: Revelation 3D
Finally, Burton is back with an animation strong enough to match The Nightmare Before Christmas. Frankenweenie proves a break from his wife and Depp is a really good thing.
Once again, a highly anticipated film falls short of my super unreaslitically high expectations. I wanted to completely adore ParaNorman. With wonderful animation and fantastic characters, it has the potential of a brilliant film. It’s still a worthy addition to 2012’s Hallowe’en fare despite my mild disappointment.
