  • Cinderella

    Cinderella 2015

    ★★★ Watched 28 Mar, 2015

    For the last couple of years reimaging classic fairy tales has been all the rage in Hollywood. This new adaptation of the classic Cinderella story bucks that trend by instead being an extremely straight laced version of a well told story.

    “Cinderella” is striving to be fresh by going back to the tales roots, there’s certainly no room for gritty rebellions ala “Snow White and the Huntsman” or endless CGI backdrops ripped straight from Tim Burton’s “Alice in Wonderland”. This…

    Blade Runner 1982

    ★★★★★ Watched 08 Jan, 2013 1

    An incredible movie in nearly all accepts. A stellar soundtrack combine with a film noir style to create a perfectly realized dark world. An interesting plot with a hint of morality, make the film more than a big brash action movie. Harrison Ford gives a layered performance to bring a likeable but rough character to the screen. Action that is fast and enjoyable but with a brutal edge inline with the films dark world. Maybe it's only flaw is the…
