Top 5: Favourite On-Screen Duos

This gallery contains 8 photos.

I was thinking about Ant and Dec, and the unfortunate circumstances that led to Dec having to do the Saturday Night Take Away on his own. I thought how one really can’t do much without the other. You always see them together, and they are at their best together. 

That got me thinking about film duos – the actors we always see together on-screen, but get the feeling they hang out off-screen too… Continue reading

Murder on the Orient Express

This gallery contains 6 photos.

‘Um. No.’ – My review in brief of both the film and book.

I read the book then immediately watched the film, but ultimately they were both disappointing. (The film, more so.)

I am a huge Agatha Christie fan and have read a fair few of her books, but despite its fame, Murder on the Orient Express is by far the biggest disappointment – mostly due to the ending… Continue reading

Top 10: Flaws in Horse Films

This gallery contains 5 photos.

Horse films are typically watched by horseriders, which means the film is going to have a very critical audience right off the bat.

I can’t enjoy horse films or TV shows (although… I don’t really know anyone over the age of 12 who does) because it’s really difficult not to nit-pick.

These are the things that always seem to let a horse film down… Continue reading

Chocolat

This gallery contains 11 photos.

A mysterious and magical fable-like tale about an eccentric, colourful and embracing chocolatier named Vianne Rocher (Juliette Binoche) and how she brightened up a deeply rooted traditional French village. Her provocative clothing, illegitimate child and outspoken values made her unwanted in the village, being cast as an evil influence. Depite this, her Chocolaterie brings hope and perspective to the guilty customers. Amongst this, there is a compelling love interest between Vianne and a free-spirited Irish traveller Roux (Johnny Depp).

I love the lead actress, , but I do wonder if they chose her because Marion Cotillard was unavailable. In any case, they are two gorgeously elegant French women with an enormous amount of talent.

This film is about depriving ourselves of things for the purpose of discipline, particularly of religion or society… Continue reading

Edward Scissorhands

This gallery contains 6 photos.

You’ll either love it or hate it. I happen to love it.
Tim Burton’s quirky and off centre idea of normalcy is shown in Edward Scissorhands which is about a man who was created by an inventor who died before he could complete him – hence the scissors for hands. Edward finds himself embraced into suburbia which challenges the belief system of the small, gossipy population of the town before everything goes wrong and Edward finds himself in a more confused state than ever… Continue reading

Public Enemies

This gallery contains 5 photos.

After reading the blurb on the back of the $9.99 DVD I was preparing myself for a mind-numbing 143 minutes of car chases and gunfire. With such an instant dislike you may wonder why I bothered rescuing this film from the bargain bin. Well, I put my faith in Johnny Depp’s reputation of being in the best of films… Continue reading

Alice In Wonderland (2010)

This gallery contains 8 photos.

What a trip!

Despite numerous films portraying Lewis Carroll’s tale of Alice in Wonderland, Tim Burton’s gothic vanished tale of being lost in Wonderland hit the nail on the head. Burton’s magical story turned a once, Disney musical cartoon into a 3D adventure of mystery and excitement for the whole family… Continue reading
