Tom Hanks: The Movie? Yes please!

I’ve always been a big fan of Tom Hanks and a great admirer of his work. So when I found out about the video below on Mashable, I was incredibly amused by the idea of almost every Tom Hanks movie taking place in the same universe. Generally, a universe revolving around Tom Hanks would be pretty […]

Cloudy With A Chance Of Meatballs 2 Made Me Hungry

But that’s beside the point. I mean, I could go on and on about how the commendable quality of the film’s animation made the food and the “food-imals” (will explain this later) that appear in it incredibly tantalising. Thank goodness I had a bag of popcorn and a hotdog to satisfy myself. Anywho, tonight I […]

Disney Fairytale Adaptations: A Current Trend?

Just a few days ago, I saw that Empire Magazine had posted the first official image of the upcoming Cinderella live-action film adaptation. If you haven’t seen the image yet, here it is: Admittedly, I had no idea that there was going to be an adaptation and, as a fan of the Disney Renaissance, I […]

One Direction: This Is Us August 26

Understanding One Direction

Before I begin my review of this concert film, let me just say that I’m not really a fan of One Direction (1D for short). I don’t proactively listen to their music but you would have to be living under a rock to not know who these five young men are. Consisting of Harry Styles, […]

Monsters University: Not Pixar’s best but still worth the watch

Having to live up to an animated masterpiece like Monsters, Inc. is no easy feat. But since we’re talking about one of the most creative companies on the planet right now, I’d like to think that the people at Pixar would be able to hit this one right out the park. Alas, it rather pains […]

Ironman 3 is pretty awesome

One can definitely sense the difference in Iron Man 3 when compared to its two predecessors. For one, our hero, Tony Stark (portrayed wonderfully by the ever-charismatic Robert Downey Jr.), is stripped down to the core – we do not see much of him fighting in his fancy suit until the final climactic battle. If this worries […]

Not so great and powerful after all

With a title that bears such an iconic name as “Oz” (made famous by the 1939 Judy Garland film, The Wizard of Oz), Oz The Great And Powerful certainly has high expectations to meet. Unfortunately, it does not quite hit the mark.In fact, what could have been a fun, fantasy-filled adventure in the wondrous land of Oz is […]

Academy Awards January 11

The 2013 Academy Awards nominations!

‘Tis time movie buffs! The 2013 Academy Awards nominations have just been announced in Los Angeles — brought to us by the somewhat random pairing of Gwen Stacey and the guy who voiced Ted and a bunch of characters in Family Guy. Not surprisingly, I would say, Steven Spielberg’s Lincoln is in the lead with […]

Hotel Transylvania is neither spooky nor funny

One obviously cannot expect an awe-inspiring animated masterpiece from a film like this; it is carefree family entertainment at best. But when watching the film, one does get the feeling thatHotel Transylvania is trying – and failing hard – to be more than that. It attempts to do what some amazing animation films have done, but […]

Review: The Amazing Spider-Man July 06

Our friendly neighbourhood superhero is back with a swing!

Since we have already had a Spider-Man film franchise not too long ago, it would undoubtedly seem a little odd that Sony decided to have another reboot. So ever since the film’s release last week, comparisons between Tobey Maguire’s Peter Parker and Andrew Garfield’s version of our friendly neighbourhood superhero are coming in from all […]
