Film Review Stoker  

This film is a bit sick and I have to confess I left before the end because I was more than a bit uncomfortable with it. It rehearses and old theme of the 'cuckoo' in the family 'nest' serially murdering family members (including children by the way) apparently without anyone noticing very much.

It had top billing in the Fulham Road but the 300 seat cinema was virtually empty. One for you to miss too.

Film Review The secret in their eyes  

This got a (rare) five star rating on moveeeee.com so I thought I'd go to see it. It's a brilliant film: a slow burn mystery thriller with a Latin slant. Quite long but you don't want it to finish, and a strrrange twist at the end. "Highly recommended."

But .... did the husband do it ???

Film Review A single man  

Just saw this tonight at the Barbican. I'd urge anyone to go and see it before it exits the big screen. It's a beautiful film with style and charm. 1960's set designed by the people who did the same for 'Mad Men.'

Film Review Australia  

This film got slated by the critics, so I was a bit surpirsed to like it very much.

It's quite suitable for 12+ age group and in fact we took my 11 y/o nephew to see it and only had to cover his eyes once !! Choose a comfy cinema though: it's nearly three hours long.

It's strange isn't it how there isn't much correlation between what the critics like and everybody else.

Film Review The Reader  

I bill as a 'must see.'

This film isn't going to cheer you up, so don't go for that reason but it is very moving in a good kind of way and VERY sexy !! There are many little touches which make it the kind of film you think of for days afterwards. Shame to miss it in the cinema: it won't be the same on TV.

It's set initally in post war Berlin and demonsrates in its subsequent decades the ricoche of the horrors of war. outstanding acting from both leads, really outstanding.

Film Review In search of a midnight kiss  

Looking for some thing to do and went to see this film. It's not on everwhere and in fact it's listed on this site :-

http://www.moveeeee.co.uk/In%20Search%20Of%20A%20Midnight%20Kiss/titleyinsear.htm

If you want to see a film that identifies with being very lost in a big city then go and see it.

Film Review Flashbacks Of A Fool  

This film is quite good if not getting very rich and famous bothers you: the message is "money and fame does not equal happiness" It's a lovely, slightly quirky film and very English. there are also bits that go unexplained and I don't think thats because they plan a sequel. Also if you are English and spent your childhood holidays in Cornwall it won't quite gel with you: that's because the scenes were filmed in SA and the waves are too big, the houses are built out of wood and there isn't enough gorse. There's quite a lot of raunchy nakedness in a rather fetid biological sort of way. I recommend this film, but it will keep for DVD release in case you were wondering.

Film Review The Kite Runner  

Go and see this it'll make you cry.

You probably know by now that it's about Afghanistan. Since it's a US film you won't be entirely surprised
that the Taliban aren't the small-town country boys who make it good after an hour and a half of setbacks (somebody else from Afghanistan goes to the US and does this instead, so don't worry.)

I haven't read the book but my hunch is that the film is more propagandist. However it is still a fantastic film, and not one to leave to DVD.

Only slight quibble though is 12A rating: so portrayal of child rape and trafficking is fine now at 12 ?

Film Review Spiritual Warriors The FILM  

I saw the trailer on www.spiritualwarriors.com and then went to see it at a private screening. It dares the audience to challenge their peceptions of who we are, what are we doing here, and the meaning of success. I found it to be a memorable journey through darkness and light and ultimately to hope. London premiere Sunday 2 September Curzon Mayfair London

Film Review (again) Calling hardcore FILM BUFFS for film research  

If you feel that you know very much about films and that they have become a too important part of your everyday life, I hereby invite you to participate in this film research for the completion of a postgraduate course im taking, on the topic of film reception. What it would involve is giving an interview (to be filmed) about you and your relationship with films + an insight into your daily life. No payment would mediate but your collaboration would be properly credited in the final filmed version of the work and under a special circumstance a symbolic retribution could be worked out. If you are interested please drop me line on the following email address, so that we can discuss in more detail:  Mail-me 

P. S. the invitation is only open for people residing in london

Film Review Paradise Lost in London  

Saw Paradise Lost last night in London! It's finally out in the UK.

I thought it was a great looking film and shooting in actual South American rainforest locations was a brilliant move. People should see the film to see how awesome the jungle looks. Maybe it will help to stop it getting chopped down.

Anyway this kind of film only works where you have an environment that drives the story and the Brazilian jungle does that stunningly. The lost backpackers storyline works and the production values seem to be way up on other films in this genre that I have seen.

I like my shocks delivered with style and this one set me up for the weekend nicely. My girlfriend loved the shocks and screamed a lot!

Check out site at www.paradiselostmovie.co.uk/ The game is cool!

Film Review re Touching the Void  

If you climb or you do extreme sports or you pride yourself M/F at endurance at what ever then I agree with ths guy, it's a must view: not very comfortable, not 'entertaining' but something you'll think about (good way) for weeks. Why does every women I know fancy the bloke that got his rope cut ?

Film Review Jamies return to School Dinners C4  

If you watched 'Jamie's School Dinners' and you liked his attention to food, the you won't like this sequel.

Like any bad sequel if fails to recognise what was good about the first. It labours beyond belief a rather patronising moralising message about procuring more government money to benefit the masses. Parents in Lincolnshire are slated for sending their children to school with packed lunches. A young chef from a local pub is humiliated on television whereas his boss isn't even interviewed.

Jamie interviews a very very tired Prime Minister.

This series iwill be about 'Jamie' an aspiring politician, not as chef, and he shows all the virtues that that career requires.

Film Review re Dr Who  

I agree. What a shame. I was quite getting into it. It was fourty-five minutes bereft of plot. I hate that fat git 'comedian' from Manchester that played the slimy fat monster, and for the life of me, I can't remember his name.

Film Review Two cheers for the change of format  

Well, at first I thought the production crew from 'Hustle' or 'This Life' had wandered into the wrong studio!

Apart from the slapstick intro this episode is hell bent on switching the perspective right around. The eponymous Dr is barely in it, and we dive deep into group therapy wearing the clothes of an investigative team. The characters were well drawn and endearing, obliquely referencing the timelord. Loved Marc Warren as Elton. Giggled at Bliss & her aimless take on New Age 'wisdom'. BUT, for all its revisionism of the DW format it comes up with exactly the same flaws that have beset the whole of this series. Namely :

Film Review Two cheers (2)  

Rushed, implausible & unsatisfactory 3rd acts
No real regard for sci fi
far too variable, jarring mixing of tone - the humour & irony often collapse the drama and ruin the pace
Utterly parochial - our central character can go anywhere in the universe in any epoch, yet he always homes in on some chemical plant in Docklands! Seems like we're always in London or the UK.
Soapy - can we have an episode without Rose's Mum/Dad/boyfriend/dog ? Theyre all great but not all the time.
This tardis dweller is way too contemporary. Looks & feels like a Cambridge drop out, yet he's supposed to be alien, dammit! None of his off world attitudes come through.

Film Review Two cheers (3)  


I agree that there wasnt much sense of urgency, and plot played its fiddle very quietly here.

Really, I think the new style doctor who is far too fluffy, frothy and ultimately unsatisfying. Most of the episodes are single shot affairs, with coffee table magazine depth. Too often visual bravado is an end in itself (Scottish Kung fu monks in bullet time, anyone?) and not tied into the setting or theme. I'd give it 8/10 for wit, fun and accessibility, but 3/10 for scifi kudos & Dr Who feel.

Anyone else think this?  Mail-me 

BTW, I think the fat comedian was Peter Kay.

Film Review Da Vinci Code  

For those who have already read the book. it should come as no surprise as to how cliched and ridiculous the film is. The fundamental messages and theories are interesting, but that's all. The unravelling of the story itself iin the book and the film, is full of Hollywood drama and stereotypes - if you don't like that, I would advise against seeing/reading either, unless you can withstand the cheese and just focus on the subject matter. Surely any film/book that encourages the younger generation to question the world, and what they are told, is a good thing. How would we progress otherwise? The findings of Gallileo being a fine example.

Film Review Davinci Code  

I didn't read the book, so I missed something presumably. Apparently not: third week in it's still showing five times a day at my local cinema (Fulham) and the seats were 75% full (Sunday Bank Holiday.)

But I didn't get the impression my fellow audience were that impressed either: no-one sat riveted in their seats beyond much of the credits.

This film is OLD-HOLLYWOOD: it will make them money, because they didn't invent or need to market the plot, and they still have the distribution network, so it's a safe profit.

The film is lame and has one of those rather sickly apple-pie endings: OK, the Christian Church manipulated history and wars for two centuries by lying and killing, but it's your faith that is the real force for good.

That's nice.

Film Review re: Davinci Code  

Yet another 'make sure the book is a best seller, throw money at overpaid US (and British) actors to give it credibility, film cheaply on busy locations in western cities and bill it as a blockbuster six months before it arrives, to give it 'gravity.'

The lead actor in this film is Tom Hanks. He plays 'Tom Hanks' in this film. The British Actor Sir Ian MacEllan is of course a very very bad guy in the end in contrast to the two US actors, and ends up getting arrested and locked up. He is old disabled rich eccentric and european, so he pulls a gun on the heroes, and deserves whatever he gets.

Film Review Cockles and Muscles  

You've missed this one in London, I think. I put it here as a good DVD take-home. It's French, with subtitles, billed a bit as a 'gay' plot which it certainly isn't.

It's and old fashioned farce, with slamming doors and things going on behind closed doors, but also people liking to think there are things going on behind closed doors because it excuses their own indiscretions, where what is going on in public is MUCH more interesting.

Very French. There's singing and dancing in it in the middle and the end. The teenage children put up with a LOT.

Film Review FILM REVIEW - INSIDE MAN  

If you haven't already seen this....go see it!! Yes it is very much your typical cop/investigation type film but the main difference is the twist and turns the plot creates. Wonderful actors in it, Denzel Washington, Clive Owen, Michelle Pfeiffer..theywere all brilliant! Its dark..but not too dark...its suspenseful and there's some humour in there as well. Well done Spike Lee!
