    Magic 1978

    ★★★ Watched 23 Nov, 2015

    Here's a movie I've wanted to see for years. The trailers shown on television were so frightening for children that they had to pull them altogether.

    Anthony Hopkins plays Corky, a magician who performs in clubs, but doesn't get too far. One day he introduces a ventriloquism act, his dummy Fats, and begins to become incredibly popular. But just as his agent lands him a television gig, he becomes nervous and seeks out an old school crush instead. But the…

  • Cinderella

    Cinderella 2015

    ★★★½ Rewatched 21 Nov, 2015 4

    While this is almost exactly what we've come to expect from Disney, it is also confidently directed by Kenneth Branagh, with fine performances from the likes of Cate Blanchett, and it's also an incredibly visually sumptous experience (save all that damn goofy cartoonish CGI).

    Let me kick it off with a story or two. The first time I ever saw this movie, I would've been about 6 or 7 years old. I was staying with my dad (a shady character) and older brother in a hotel room downtown. We were all eagerly looking forward to the movie, even though my parents had…

  • Captain America: The Winter Soldier

    Captain America: The Winter Soldier 2014

    ★★★★½ Watched 26 Mar, 2014

    I don't think superhero films should be comedies, history has proven that they work so much better as thrillers. And that's why Captain America: The Winter Soldier is my favourite Marvel film to date, possibly even more so than The Avengers.

    When someone threatens to cause major damage to S.H.I.E.L.D., Captain America has to rethink everything he knows - already trying to adapt to the 21st century, he's making new friends and meeting old ones, thinking of partners lost and…
