A British diplomat travels to Munich in the run-up to World War II, where a former classmate of his from Oxford is also en route, but is working for the German government.
This is a slow-burn period piece that takes the (somewhat) cliché-filled Political Thriller genre and elevates it to a degree. The performances here are outstanding. George MacKay again proves that he thrives in this kind of film. There is…
Belfast is a drama following a young boy and his working-class Belfast family who experience the tumultuous late 1960s.
I really wasn’t sure what to think of this one to begin with, I certainly didn’t expect to love it as much as I did by time the end credits started to roll. Belfast is a phenomenal film that tells the story of a working-class family within Belfast during the late 60s and it does this in such a unique, captivating…
Wow, what a journey this trilogy has been. So sinister and evil. This one was beautiful. The settings in this one were out of this world. It was exactly what you’d expect from a Godfather movie. The opera scenes especially were superb. I feel like I’m now apart of this Italian family and I better watch my back.
There's not much to say, it's just a fun, well animated short of Bruce Wayne being chased by some girls at a party, and in his attempt to escape from her, he encounters his forbidden love, Catwoman, trying to rob him. Before long, the chase that gives the short ensues.
The animation is fluid and engaging, reminiscent of the popular animated series as well as the style of animated films that would follow. Jazz music gives it a sense of…
What a waste of good source material. Alan Moore's graphic novel is excellent this is not. This had the potential to be great with a cool concept. Terrible cgi, some awful, inexperienced direction, terrible script and plot and Sean Connery looks like he doesnt want to be there. Some poor casting choices as well. Thank goodness comic book adaptations got better and we dont get rubbish adaptations like this anymore. Only watched it to log on my letterboxed watched list.
Zac Efron having a bigger shocker down under than Novak Djokovic or Joe Root and co.
This started really well but the more it went down the "is this post-apoc?" route the less I found myself being that interested. It mostly looked fantastic and the score was superb, but its story didn't do much to properly suck me in despite Efron giving it everything. Worth sticking it out for the ending though, it'll hit you for six.

It's pretty clear that Selznick probably had a low appreciation for Westerns, and as a Western, this is damn near hopeless. This goes off the rails in so many ways that it has become an object lesson in why producers, especially ones that fancy themselves artists, need to stay in an office complaining about cost overruns where they belong. Without Selznick's obsessing, maybe King Vidor could have made this into a serviceable story,…

It’s a movie that’ll have you in tears
It’s a movie that’ll inspire you to buy a car
It is… cinema.
