Nanny McPhee Returns

Sequels are rarely as good as the first film, but Nanny McPhee Returns surprised me. If you are unfamiliar with Nanny McPhee then you might want to think of Disney’s Mary Poppins. Nanny McPhee shows up when a family is in great need of her assistance, just like Mary Poppins. She is a disciplinarian with children and adults, just like Mary Poppins. She has lessons to teach, and when they are complete and balance has been restored to the household she must leave, also just like Mary Poppins.

Paul Blu-Ray Review

There is little doubt that Simon Pegg and Nick Frost intended Paul to be an enjoyable romp through the collective memory of all the classic Science Fiction feature films of Steven Spielberg and George Lucas and if nothing else it succeeds in being a heartfelt love letter to the extra-terrestrial, however as an original comedy from the pedigree of Spaced, Shaun of the Dead and Hot Fuzz it does feel a little underwhelming. That’s not to say that it isn’t enjoyable or that it doesn’t play to its strengths; it does, although there is such a sense…

Red Riding Hood 2011 Review

Red Riding Hood is a fairy tale gone thriller. It opened in March of this year and attempted to retell the tale of the Red Riding Hood to adults. With Amanda Seyfried in the lead and a budget topping over $40 million, not a heck lot could go wrong, or so it seemed. Is this a great interpretation of the famous fairy tale? Or does it fall short, becoming one of the many highly anticipated downfalls this movie season, let’s learn.

Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides – A Little More Penzance Than Last Time

In what could be called “Captain Jack and the Last Crusade,” we say goodbye to Will and Elizabeth Turner (Orlando Bloom and Keira Knightley, respectively) and hello to a more expensive look, drearier set pieces, and a more puzzling plot line. However, one benefit of the Pirates films is that no matter how twisted the story may be, and no matter how questionable things may get, everything seems to fall into place. The franchise has always had a firm rooting in faith, spirituality and things seemingly happening for a reason, with the hint of a moral compass always guiding the way, so in that aspect the film gives itself room to take outlandish turns, so long as everything fits. On Stranger Tides is certainly no exception to this rule, but At World’s End (2007) had that market cornered.

The Art Of Darkness – Apocalypse Now and Full Metal Jacket

To this day, wars continue to inspire films of varying quality. As long as the world continues to be colored in shades of gray, rather than black and white, the most successful art will always reflect this with a degree of moral ambiguity. Apocalypse Now and Full Metal Jacket have paved the way, and it is to be hoped that future artists will find it, though it is doubtful that any can surpass the artistry of these two great films.

Are Comic Book Movies Dying Instead of Thriving?

June has marked the release of one of the year’s most critically panned movie. No I’m not talking about the mediocre movie The Hangover Part II. I’m not talking about the brilliant X-Men: First Class. As much as it pains me to say it, Martin Campbell’s Green Lantern may become the worst disaster for comic book movies since the likes of The Fantastic 4 hit cinemas. And it was all going so well this year…

Has YouTube Ruined Movie Watching?

With Hollywood studios increasingly dishing up extended clips ahead of major film premieres, it’s possible to see whole chunks of a movie ahead of release. But are these “exclusive” previews robbing us of the element of surprise?

The Dark Knight Film Review

There is a villain wreaking havoc in Gotham City. This man calls himself “The Joker” and “has a touch for the theatrics.” District Attorney Harvey Dent has come down hard on the criminal population in court as Batman attempts to keep the streets of Gotham safe.
