The Star Wars Story that nobody asked for, but was is a story worth telling? In short, NO.
After watching Avatar in 3-D for the first time since theatres in 2009, I began to think about the long delay in the production of the sequels. I remembered how long it took to bring the original to the screen, a decade to be precise, with talk of "developing something new and innovative". It was… Continue reading AVATAR 2, 3, 4 & 5 -WHY THE DELAY?
1950 DIRECTORS: Clyde Geronimi, Wilfred Jackson & Hamilton Luske May contain spoilers! This classic animation, as with many of the golden age Disney pictures, have become more iconic than critically acclaimed. The animation style is good, though not at the heights of Disney's greatest works, with many short cuts used throughout and story is so simple that it manages to… Continue reading CINDERELLA (1950)
1979 DIRECTOR: Gary Nelson May contain spoilers! I want to say that the effects where good for the time. I want to say the acting was acceptable. I want to say that the screenplay was more than a mediocre sci-fi script and that Anthony Perkins was not horribly miscast in this post Star Wars Disney movie.… Continue reading THE BLACK HOLE
2015 DIRECTORS: Pete Docter & Ronaldo Del Carmen May contain spoilers! Pixar are back on form! It is about time after a raft of lesser sequels to their greater works but as with Pete Docter's last film, Up (3D) (2009), Inside Out is much more than meets the eye. This is a sophisticated psychological comedy/drama focusing… Continue reading INSIDE OUT (3D)
2013 DIRECTOR: Liz W. Garcia NOT A PART OF OUR COLLECTION May Contain Spoilers! Will we be adding this to our collection? NO Well, if you like watching an R rated film, which thinks that it is giving and insight in to the life of a twenty-something who can not accept her grown up life, told… Continue reading THE LIFEGUARD
2013 DIRECTORS: Chris Buck & Jennifer Lee May Contain Spoilers! What can I say. I like it. And not just because I'm the father of a little girl, and step-father to more, but because it is a genuine classic. This is, to me, the Up (2009) that Disney Animation have been waiting for since animation… Continue reading FROZEN (3D)
- Of the modern 3D era, which is essentially 2007 to the present, several movies have made limited appearances in IMAX 3D. The first was an early example of IMAX's attempts to use 3D in mainstream cinema, with Harry Potter And The Order Of The Phoenix (2007) and Superman Returns (2006) both contain segments of 3D. But… Continue reading RARE 3D TITLES OF THE MODERN ERA
2012 There's not really much that you can say about and eight minute short, to what is basically a sequel of sorts, to the original Tangled (2011) except that in this case, it was way better than the original! Fun, sharp and witty Chameleon and basically ignoring the two stars in favour of the horse and… Continue reading TANGLED EVER AFTER (3D)
Last week was my first real opportunity to run-in and test of the Optima HD141x, and what can I say? After spending my teenage years using 8mm and 16mm projectors, it wasn't until May 2003 that I first moved into LCD projection. I began with a Sanyo PLV-Z1, which was obviously pre-HDMI and in turn, pre-HD and… Continue reading REVIEW OF THE OPTOMA HD141x HD 3D PROJECTOR
