The long awaited Gotham premièred last night after months of pretty huge build up. It’s only to be expected after the success of the Dark Knight trilogy but what to make of it?

gothamIn its look Gotham is more Burton than Nolan,it looks more like a comic book although it is more serious than the Burton films and leans more towards Nolan’s serious tone with plot,characters and acting. It’s a bit of a…

10 Films Where The Girl Should Have Got The Girl

Bride Wars

We all love a good rom-com and I love a good female led cast that can pull off a comedy. But sometimes it’s really obvious that had the other lead been a man the two leading ladies or best friends would definitely have ended up together and most times I would have preferred it that way, it would have made the film better and it’s a perfectly logical conclusion. Happens in every other rom-com why…

Before I Go To Sleep: Kidman & Firth will thrill the pants off you

before i go to sleep nicole kidman camera

before i go to sleep nicole kidman cameraEver since seeing the trailer for this I’ve been looking forward to seeing it and it’s always with films like this that I find out there’s a book. I rarely read a good thriller before I find out it’s a film or it’s going to be a film. Kidman and Firth have worked together before but I haven’t seen them in the same film previous to this so I wasn’t sure what to expect only that I know I’m a fan of…

Maleficent: Proving Your True Love Is Not Always Prince Charming

maleficent angelina jolie

maleficent angelina jolieRecently I got round to watching Maleficent,starring the terrifyingly brilliant Angelina Jolie. From trailers I was wanting to see it because she looked the part and seemed to play the villain so well it kind of scared me. But Maleficent is not a story about Aurora, the sleeping princess. It shows us what Maleficent was and how she came to be the villain we all know from our childhoods.

While…

SciFi ‘Lucy’ is short but not all bad

IMG_0874.JPG

Scarlett Johanson’s latest science fiction attempt is ‘Lucy’ where she plays a young woman who likes her drink and her freedom until she gets roped in to a drug deal,forced to be a drug mule and then kicked in the stomach so hard the wrapped up drugs in her stomach burst and she absorbs their powers.

The drug is a blue,gritty substance that steadily but quickly allows Lucy to access more and…

‘What If’ is not 500 Days of Summer

‘What If’ a film was made where a girl and a guy actually ARE just good friends and don’t end up together? There were comparisons of Daniel Radcliffe and Zoe Kazan to the parts played in 500 Days of Summer and although this film tries its best to be quirky and revive the manic pixie dream girl we are all tired of,it fails.

Radcliffe gives a decent performance and he comes across as confident and…

Planet of the Apes: Who can blame Caesar

Dawn of the planet of the apes

Dawn of the planet of the apesAs Dawn of the Planet of the Apes is released, I decided to watch Rise of the Planet of the Apes before I go ahead and dive in to this exciting new blockbuster.

Caesar,the ape who kicked it all off,was brought up by a scientist from the time he was a baby and then he was screwed over by people who were cruel to animals. He was screwed before he was even born because his mother was ‘put down’ when…

How To Train Your Dragon 2 & The IMAX experience

20140704-221148-79908212.jpg

How To Train Your Dragon,when it was released,surprised a lot of people including me when it was released. It didn’t look great but it gave me one of the best surprises after watching the first film. It was funny,a new story and thought outside the box. It’s not as goofy as ‘Shrek’ or as serious as say ‘Avatar’ but it found a good middle ground where it feels like it’s an animation to be taken…

First ‘Interstellar’ trailer for Nolan’s next film has arrived

interstellar poster

Matthew McConnaghey does his best Morgan Freeman impression as he speaks over the trailer for Christopher Nolan’s first ‘Interstellar’ trailer. By that I mean he speaks very deeply and meaningfully about our past histories and how we can’t forget that we are pioneers and we haven’t done all there is to do yet.

Not a lot of plot detail has been revealed but what we do know is that the film is to…
