2009 10/10 The best Pixar film since Toy Story. How can such a simple narrative following one old man's quest to fulfill his wife's dream of living on a South American waterfall, capture so much. Dogs, birds, man and boy. Every character was rounded and added to the story, making this something memorable and classic. The "Spirit Of Adventure" … Continue reading UP
2007 4/10 NOT A PART OF MY COLLECTION Disappointing from STARt to finish. Barely watchable, contrived and overly complex plot surrounding the capture of Claire Danes' fallen star, but too many characters, hit and miss comedy and a general sense of confusion left me cold. Not very funny, not very exciting and it didn't seem to know exactly … Continue reading STARDUST
2004 6/10 Not a bad flick, but Shyamalan's films have been going progressively down the pan with each outing. The twist was pretty obvious and the plot surrounding the monsters reeked of filler when all was said and done. Overall, not a bad but hardly as original at it thinks it is... The sound design was excellent though, but with his … Continue reading THE VILLAGE
2009 5/10 NOT A PART OF MY COLLECTION CINEMA REVIEW Not bad. Nothing of any real interest but the kids seems to like it and it didn't drag. Just a vacuous, cynical vehicle.
1997 7/10 The more accurate of 1997's two volcano films, but this falls foul of typical disaster movie pacing: Two hours of film with the first hour of set up followed by another of action. But the action does satisfy none the less and overall, for all its' clichés, it does makes for a good entertaining film.
2004 7/10 THEATRICAL CUT I have always thought that this film was somewhat underrated, and of this, I am still certain. But, it has several major and unforgivable flaws. Firstly, its casting: Though I feel that the cast perform well, and in some cases, brilliantly, even Farrel's titular role, hardly any of the key roles were … Continue reading ALEXANDER
The criteria for Director Of The Month is a director with a 10/10 film, or nearest. Where there are several, the deciding factor is to tally the directors complete works, and the one with the highest number of 10/10 movies wins. This month is was between - WALTER LANG for "THE KING AND I" & QUENTIN TARANTINO … Continue reading DIRECTOR OF THE MONTH – QUENTIN TARANTINO
1994 10/10 After years of watching this movie, I feel that it only gets better with age. This is dark western, with a grand scope and epic qualities. The production values are as brilliant as the performances, notably and outstanding Dennis Quaid as Doc Holiday. Costner's, Wyatt Earp's character arch is superbly played also, with the Silverado … Continue reading WYATT EARP
