127 Hours review

Posted : 5 years ago on 13 June 2012 11:38 (A review of 127 Hours)

Gripping, suspenseful and perfectly acted by James Franco, '127 Hours' is the best a film about a man who has to cut off his arm could be. It's emotional, and even funny at times, but even with its brilliant direction it can't help but feel slightly too over stayed by the end, after all we have been stuck between a rock and a hard place with James Franco for 90% of the film. But you have to admire the technicality of it, and it is a well made film.

The Ghost Writer review

Posted : 5 years ago on 13 June 2012 11:38 (A review of The Ghost Writer)

I really loved this film. The suspense was built up from start right up until the shocking ending, which is not surprising for a Roman Polanski film, but this shows the director at the top of his game. The cast, which includes Ewan McGregor, Pierce Brosnan and Olivia Williams, all give top performances and the script is very clever and keeps the pulse racing. I was completely taken away by the complexity and entertainment value of this film, and it certainly would place in my 'Top 5 films list' of 2010.

Rio review

Posted : 5 years ago on 13 June 2012 11:37 (A review of Rio)

A colourful, vibrant and often very funny animated film which features some catchy musical numbers and beautiful animation. It's only let down by it's often irritating human characters, but the story is nevertheless engaging and the excellent voice-acting brings the funny animal characters to life. Well worth seeing!

A Bug's Life review

Posted : 5 years ago on 13 June 2012 11:36 (A review of A Bug's Life)

One of Pixar's earliest films, 'A Bug's Life' is certainly not among the studio's best, and yet it is still a fantastic achievement. It is Pixar, of course the animation is superb and the story, as well as being funny and entertaining, also carries messages such as acceptance and honesty. Like 'Toy Story', the writers have also created a whole bunch of fun and memorable characters, from the gluttonous German caterpillar Heimlich, to the proud and proper praying mantis, Manny. The story has a similar start to many other films, featuring the 'nut' in the colony who doesn't fit in with everyone else, but it grows into an original and adventurous film, thanks to the fact that the story is in a 'bug world', giving the writers the opportunity to open the door to imagination and create exciting scenarios and conflicts that the characters encounter. I found 'A Bug's Life' highly enjoyable, a great family film by the always brilliant Pixar.
