AWESOME!

Posted : 8 years, 8 months ago on 4 January 2009 09:12 (A review of Hook)

I really like 'Hook'. It's really long at like 140 minutes but it's never boring. Spielberg always does amazing things when it comes to making movies.

The film is about Peter Pan, played really well by Robin Williams. He's now an adult and returns to Netherland to reclaim his youthful spirit in order to challenge his old nemesis - Hook!!!

I think this movie was really well done. Well produced, very exciting, and very funny. There isn't much more I can say about it except...watch it soon!!!

Wow...I liked it

Posted : 8 years, 8 months ago on 4 January 2009 09:08 (A review of Snatch)

I really like this film. It's so entertaining and enjoyable. Well written by Guy Ritchie and well acted by a good cast.

Like its predecessor, this film has a plot that can't really be told without divulging spoilers, so I'll try to keep this as general as possible. The film follows a host of different characters in different storylines that become juxtaposed throughout the running time.

'Snatch' is a film that becomes better the more times you watch it. The film is so well made and stylish that I found myself enjoying every minute of it. The story isn't as convoluted as 'Lock, Stock & Two Smoking Barrels', which is a relief because the convoluted nature of that film was what destroyed it for me. There are characters that have interesting names, like Bullet Tooth Tony (Jones) and Franky Four Fingers (Del Toro) that add certain realism to the mafia aspect. The star of the show here for me, though, was Brad Pitt in his best performance to date. This isn't his regular character, but instead a talented Irish gypsy boxing fighter. It's very difficult to see that it is actually Brad Pitt behind the thick accent. All round the performances are superb, including Jason Statham who creates a very believable character as well.

There's also a lot of excellent humour mixed in there as well. The film is stylish, entertaining, hilarious, contains brilliant direction and is a lot of more fun. Recommended.

MASTERPIECE!!!

Posted : 8 years, 8 months ago on 4 January 2009 09:05 (A review of Sin City)

'Sin City' is, in my opinion, one of the best movies of 2005. The film is an adaptation of Frank Miller's graphic novels (who also guest co-directed), and the result is a very stylishly shot, with a perfect cast, film noir with a faultless script.

Prior to viewing this film I had no knowledge of the graphic novels, but the wave of great reviews it received was the thing that urged me to see it. Before viewing I had no idea what to expect, but as the film started I could not take my eyes away from the screen and I was instantly hooked. Film noir isn't my thing, but the excellent visuals made me forget completely that this was film noir and I just laid back and enjoyed the brilliant narration by the central characters while watching a blood-bath of a movie. The film is exceedingly gory, with lots of limbs being sliced off and people getting blown to bits (although I usually abhor violence in movies), but it was the intelligent script, with the inventive visuals and classy construction that really made this a winner!

The film is made up of many stories, but all are connected in some aspect and they are all set inside the comic book world of Sin City; a world of low-lifes, pimps, hookers and whores that spill onto the big screen in a pool of red, white and yellow blood. The first tale is the tale of Hartigan (Willis) - a soon-to-be ex-cop who’s pushing 60. He's been working on tracking a child rapist named Roark (Stahl). Roark has recently kidnapped an 11-year-old girl named Nancy (played by Vega when at age 11) and Hartigan makes it his task to find Roark and save Nancy. After saving Nancy, Hartigan was shot many times and ends up in hospital, followed by gaol. When finally released he goes to find Nancy (now played by Alba), but things go wrong. The second tale is of Marv, a thug. After sleeping with a hooker who gets killed, Marv vows revenge and stumbles across cannibal Kevin (Wood). The final story is of Dwight (Owen, in a brilliant performance) who assists the hookers of Sin City in killing a corrupt cop named Jackie Boy (Del Toro) who has a penchant for violence.

The three stories are taken from the pages of Miller's graphic novels and the transformation works astoundingly well! This is one of those films you must see because it's too brilliant to miss! If you haven't yet seen it - do so!

My Favourite Movie!!!!

Posted : 8 years, 8 months ago on 4 January 2009 09:02 (A review of To Kill a Mockingbird)

'To Kill a Mockingbird' is my favourite film in history. I loved the book, I loved the movie. Everything about this production is terrific. I watch it a lot and never get sick of it.

Set in the old 30's in America, the plot is built on how black men were treated and were looked upon as different back then. Peck (in his Oscar winning performance) plays Atticus Finch, a powerful lawyer who is hired to defend a black man accused of raping a young girl. Peck is the ultimate father figure and gives a memorable performance (for which he won an Oscar) that shall be remembered through this generation of filmmaking.

Shot back in 1960's it is presented in black and white, but thankfully the film hasn't dated and is still an extremely well made movie. It has great acting and great directing from Robert Mulligan (who recently died).

This masterpiece is another prime example of how such a classic movie can still be respected and looked upon as a work of cinematic art during modern days.
