Avatar review

Posted : 5 years ago on 13 June 2012 11:48 (A review of Avatar)

Visually mindblowing and irresistibly exciting, James Cameron has created a masterpiece that is a revolution to the film industry. The story may not be new, but carries a strong moral message and has an emotional love story in the background. It must be seen in 3D for the visual splendour to be at its prime effectiveness. I sincerely hope that its sequels do not ruin such a fabulous movie, one which (despite 'The Hurt Locker's brilliance) should have won the Oscar for 'Best Picture'.

Kick-Ass review

Posted : 5 years ago on 13 June 2012 11:48 (A review of Kick-Ass)

Hugely entertaining, thanks mainly to the ass-kicking character 'Hit Girl', played by Chloe Moretz. This is Quentin Tarantino meets the superhero genre and is funny, gory and action-packed! Controversial? Definitely. One of the best film of 2010? I believe so.

Alice in Wonderland review

Posted : 5 years ago on 13 June 2012 11:47 (A review of Alice in Wonderland)

Not quite as brilliant as I expected when I first saw it in cinemas, the film has nonetheless grown on me. Johnny Depp's creation of the Mad Hatter is wonderful, but it seems to dominate the film, where as Mia Wasikowska's 'Alice' was just as great a character to watch. It is unfortunate too that the film ends with a large action sequence that seems to downgrade the film overall, however the quirkiness and amazing visuals of the film, and the charm that is nevertheless existent despite its flaws, overcomes these. The stand out performance comes from Helena Bonham Carter, whose wonderful interpretation of the Red Queen is hilarious rather than villainous. It is, so far, one of the best films of the year so far and definitely worth watching.

How to Train Your Dragon review

Posted : 5 years ago on 13 June 2012 11:46 (A review of How to Train Your Dragon)

I went to this film with very high expectations, the unbelievable 98% Rotten Tomatoes rating in my head, and although it was not the masterpiece I thought it would be, it still proved to be a fun rollercoaster of a ride. It is not better than 'Shrek', 'Shrek 2', or 'Kung Fu Panda', and still doesn't compare to most Pixar films, but the flying action sequences and scenes shared by the hero and his dragon as they build upon their unlikely relationship make it well worth watching.

Robin Hood review

Posted : 5 years ago on 13 June 2012 11:45 (A review of Robin Hood)

The action sequences did not stun, the story was not very entertaining and overall, it really wasn't that impressive. Only when Cate Blanchett's character is introduced does this film take off, slightly, and the comedic chemistry between her Marion, and Robin Hood, make this film enjoyable. Definitely one of Ridly Scott's weaker films, but even that doesn't mean that it's a dud.

Shrek Forever After review

Posted : 5 years ago on 13 June 2012 11:44 (A review of Shrek Forever After)

A lot of the pop culture references are gone, and much of the charm in the world of Far Far Away. However you do not always need charm to make a good film. There is much more emotion (crying and yelling) in this film, and less comedy, but the strong moral message that is the heart of this film glows warmly, and so even if it can't produce the thrills of both 'Shrek' and 'Shrek 2', it is still a huge improvement on 'Shrek 3', and provides an emotionally satisfying and enjoyable conclusion to what is a classic animated series. I am glad that it finished on a good note, despite my low expectations.

Spirited Away review

Posted : 5 years ago on 13 June 2012 11:44 (A review of Spirited Away)

This is the first film that I saw by Hayao Miyazaki, and I thought that it was beautiful, mysterious and very original. However, it's hard to compare it with Pixar because the differance between anime and computer generated animation is such that they are almost completely different genres. I found 'Spirited Away' very relaxing and meaningful. The animation was superb, the storyline was unique and heartfelt and the characters were a lot of fun, especially the superbly animated Yubaba. It will go down in history as one of the best animated films of all time, and was a pleasure to watch.

Toy Story 3 review

Posted : 5 years ago on 13 June 2012 11:43 (A review of Toy Story 3)

'Toy Story 3' has wiped the smirks off the faces of all the doubters who believed that by making a third installment Pixar were crushing their invincible streak of critics successes. They have, once again, reminded us why they wear the crown in the world of animation, providing us with a thrilling, emotional and hilarious film that ticks all the boxes in providing us with the ultimate family film. Ten years was a long wait, but this movie makes it every bit worth it. Well done Pixar!

Kill Bill: Vol. 2 review

Posted : 5 years ago on 13 June 2012 11:43 (A review of Kill Bill: Vol. 2)

Gory, unbelievably exciting and featuring fight sequences that will have you drooling on the edge of your seat, the concept is incredibly simple. 'KILL BILL'.
Definitely up there with 'Pulp Fiction' and 'Inglourious Basterds' as Quentin Tarantino's best film to date, it is an old fashioned horror/comedy/drama that is just so entertaining!

The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe review

Posted : 5 years ago on 13 June 2012 11:43 (A review of The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe)

This movie has more layers than may be originally realised. It does not compare to 'Harry Potter' or 'Lord of the Rings', and may sometimes, especially in the final battle, look like cheap remakes of the two, but the source material did come long before 'Harry Potter', and it carries Christian messages within its plot, such as the resurrection. It is an innocent tale of school children that find a fantasy world within a wardrobe, and the adventure that follows is both entertaining and fun. Tilda Swinton is perfect as the Ice Witch, the main antagonist of the film, and the four young leads, especially Georgie Henley who plays Lucy, definitely have a career in acting waiting for them. Overall, it may not be the perfect fantasy film, but it is nevertheless a great family movie that is a magical experience to behold.
