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 feel silly thinking this kids’ movie could be anything but a shallow cartoon.
Animation aimed at children but also being entertaining for adults, such as The Lion King and the Toy Story trilogy, have been and gone.
Perhaps it’s just going to be a string of cheaply made kids movies from now on. With famous voice actors dragging it to the cinema.
I thought it had a blatant moral of “be yourself”. But then I realised it’s a bit deeper than that – it’s about breaking out of the mould created by society. Liking the same songs as everyone else and told to be happy by staying in the same job for the rest of your life is the lifestyle the protagonist breaks out of.
The Lego Movie was bizarre and silly… Continue reading

This animation is one of the most enjoyable ones I have seen. The best animations are ones where they are enjoyable for more than one age group, which Megamind certainly is! Great for the younger audience as well as for teenagers and adults.
It’s about a blue alien named Megamind (Will Ferrell) who grew up on Earth causing destruction and trouble, and his arch nemesis Metro Man (Brad Pitt) who is the city’s ‘super hero’. It’s a classic good guy/bad guy relationship which becomes a game to Megamind, until he finally defeats Metro Man and realises that the success he had always strived for was not as rewarding as he had thought… Continue reading

I. Love. This. Movie.
It’s about a man who can hear a voice narrating every event in his life, but it become sinister when the narrator casually mentions that “little did he know that this simple seemingly innocuous act would result in his imminent death…”. Harold Crick now has to try and find the author to get her to stop writing before she completely writes him out of existence. I guess the first awesome thing about this film is the cast. Will Ferrell… His character is Harold Crick who is a very mundane… Continue reading
