MIRROR MIRROR (2012) – Review


2012 DIRECTOR: Tarzem Singh 70/100 I finally got around to watching this 2012 Snow White adaptation after 8 years an was pleasantly surprised. I missed it at the time, put off by what appeared to be a kids movie, favouring the mediocre Snow White and the Huntsman, in the Cinema instead. I misjudged both films… Continue reading MIRROR MIRROR (2012) – Review

THE WICKER MAN (1973) – REVIEW


  1973 DIRECTOR: Robin Hardy "Come. It is time to keep your appointment with the Wicker Man."

THE BLACK PIRATE (1926) – REVIEW


1926 DIRECTOR: Albert Parker Two Tone Technicolor in all its glory! This is it. The first widely distributed Technicolor movie back before we even had sound. This was hardly the first foray into colour, in fact colour almost goes as far back as film itself, as does sound, but it was not until the mid-1920's… Continue reading THE BLACK PIRATE (1926) – REVIEW

THE BIG TRAIL (FOX GRANDEUR) (1930) – REVIEW


1930 DIRECTORS: Raoul Walsh &  Louis R. Loeffler "The Indians are my friends..." Breck Coleman - John Wayne Not exactly a statement that would exemplify the Career of a man rightly or wrongly associated as being the Cowboy of the Cowboy and Indian movies. But there is no doubt that John Wayne was certainly one… Continue reading THE BIG TRAIL (FOX GRANDEUR) (1930) – REVIEW

GONE GIRL


2014 DIRECTOR: David Fincher CONTAINS MAJOR SPOILERS! David Fincher is one of my top directors and his latest Oscar nominated hit, Gone Girl certainly maintains his style. But what of the substance?

HOW THE WEST WAS WON 3-STRIP REVIEW (CINERAMA)


If we were to walk into a theatre today and watch a film in which the widescreen image was clearly separated in to thirds, with each third looking different from its neighbour, jumping around and not even marrying up with it, I think that we would be right out the door demanding a refund before… Continue reading HOW THE WEST WAS WON 3-STRIP REVIEW (CINERAMA)

TAXI DRIVER (1976) – REVIEW


1976 DIRECTOR: Martin Scorsese May contain Spoilers! This is a bit of tough one. Almost four decades on from Taxi Driver's initial release, we are looking at a film which was no doubt a ground-breaking achievement back in 1976. The tone is adolescent Scorsese, still on his way towards perfecting his now iconic style of… Continue reading TAXI DRIVER (1976) – REVIEW
