The Amazing Spider-Man (2012) (DVD review).

Forget about the trilogy of past years, this new production is very much better and tells the story of Spider-Man, the Marvel Comics hero, in a more comprehensive manner. The old Spider-Man was two-dimensional and frankly boring in parts, but the character played by Andrew Garfield is definitely three-dimensional and more complete. Okay, maybe a […]

The Hobbit… here, son, ‘ave this blade.

A new trailer for the Hobbit where Gandalf arms his diminutive questing companion up with a sword… Sting is it? It’s interesting that the media seem to be trying to spread a ‘This movie sucks’ message based on supposed awful early reactions at test screenings. We’ll hold our opinion until we’ve actually seen the film, […]

Life Of Pi (2012) (film review).

Capsule: ‘Life Of Pi’ joins ‘Jonathan Livingston Seagull’ (1973) and ‘The Little Prince’ (1974) as being an adaptation of a philosophical book that reached for big meanings and it is not a lot more profound. Ang Lee’s film of Yann Martel’s novel ‘Life Of Pi’ is a visual feast, well-acted and with very fine use […]

Bloody Christmas (DVD review).

Christmas is coming and the goose is going to get slaughtered, accompanied by quite a few others in this not so cheery movie where the main star is a guy wandering about in a Santa Claus outfit. Be warned, you won’t find great quality of acting, production, sound and anything else you might expect from […]

Men In Black III (DVD review).

After an absence of several years, it’s a welcome return for the ‘Men In Black’, our old friends who keep the planet Earth safe from alien marauders. Their nonchalant style and witty repartee coupled with ingenious special effects made the first two movies a delight to watch and number three is no exception. Will Smith […]
