I never considered it before, but some actors genuinely regret roles they have accepted. I guess it’s quite difficult to tell if a film will be good or not when all you have to go on is a black and white script. I suppose there’s a lot of trust involved in accepting a role.
Some of these actors regret the roles because the film was a flop, and some of them resent their character because it made them internationally famous… Continue reading

Ricky Gervais loves being typecast, he says that actors should do what they do best and not feel the pressure to play different parts.
However, this is clearly not the view of a lot of actors who seem to be trying to shake their ‘character’. Some have not been successful, such as Jack Black and Adam Sandler, who forever play the School of Rock and Happy Gilmore type casts.
Meanwhile other actors have been successful in breaking free from their typecast, and are in all sorts of films now…. Continue reading

I bought this DVD as a bit of a whim. After stumbling across the trailer on YouTube I thought that the look of the whole film resembled the circus scenes in Big Fish.
It is the story of the dark side of the circus during the early 1930s, with a forbidden love story between Jacob (Robert Pattinson) and Marlena (Reece Witherspoon) intertwined. Jacob runs away with the circus and poses as a certified vet to continue travelling with them, but discovers that there’s much more to performing that the magic the audience sees.
On the way, he experiences the control and under handed acts that go on in order to keep the circus from failing during the depression. Staff would go missing in the night if the boss and husband of Marlena, August (Christoph Waltz), was unable to pay… Continue reading

This is a rather delayed review of the first film of the Twilight Saga. But it has won the poll with an impressive 221 votes! So here is my take on it:
The first thing that I can comment truthfully on is the music… if anything, the emotion comes from the music in this film. Emotion, however, is not something that would be seen throughout the protagonists. Bella (Kristen Stewart) and her vampire boyfriend, Edward, (Robert Pattinson) are predominately absent of extreme feelings or overall facial movement…
But the 25 year old-looking high schoolers who glittered in daylight and are transformed into a sexualised and attractive killers… Well. It just doesn’t go down well for me. I think that vampire + sparkles = evil fairy… Not a pin-up highschool boy, like Hollywood has portrayed Edward Cullen to be… Continue reading
