My thoughts on Boyhood are extremely mixed but the one feeling that keeps niggling me as I ponder the epic 13 year journey I watched is one of disappointment.
Like many film fans I have known about the film's development for some time and the simple idea behind it's conception is bold, daring and genuinely brilliant. Again, like many people, I have also read many reviews and have been seduced by the impossibly high ratings and shear wealth of praise…
"Now whether or not what we experienced was an according-to-Hoyle miracle is insignificant. But what is significant is I felt the touch of God. God got involved." - Jules Winnfield
Jules is always one for hyperbole. And so am I. To say that I 'felt the touch of God' when I watch Pulp Fiction is a hyperbole. What I did feel though, is the presence of one of the greatest works of cinematic entertainment ever created. A rich tapestry of…
This is the ultimate film homage.
I honestly can't see how anyone wouldn't like this film. Even if you don't love it, you have to like something about it. The honest dialogue, the hilarity of it all, the thrill of it all, the awesome performances, the engaging characters, the compelling and thought provoking story, that fucking briefcase...
I swear, I don't think there is a single person on the planet who uttered the phrase "I didn't like Pulp Fiction" just like how no one has ever said "I don't know what's in that fucking briefcase." We all know by now. It's pretty obvious isn't it?
From the very first words uttered you know you're watching something special. In Reservoir Dogs, Tarantino already showed signs of his unique skill at writing dialogue. In Pulp Fiction he perfects it.
When this came out in Holland, it became mostly known for two things. Firstly the fact that Travolta was playing a role he had never played before and secondly the fact that Tarantino made some great and unbelievably accurate cultural observations about Holland. Both were completely true of…
I don't quite know what a "D'Movie" is, one can only presume through method of elimination than with B movies being cheap fun, C movies must be a lousy movie. A D Movie therefore must be a movie not really up to the challenge of being a movie at all, at least from the evidence on show here.
For those who are not in the know (and for those who aren't in the know, I recommend you stay unknowing), Mrs…
"Tom Crews, Solicitor. C-R-E-W-S."
If you are one or more of the following:
- A pensioner
- A priest
- Have Tourettes
- Suffer from Parkinson's
- Are a war vet
- Are deaf
- Are blind
-Above all, are of Asian ethnicity
Then you will most certainly be shockingly offended by this movie, if not bored and pissed out of your mind...I know I was.
"But I told him he was stupid, the TARDIS will go on and on forever cause it's special and magic, like my Sampa, my Sampa's Doctor Who...and he can do anything."
Phenomenally touching, Mark Gatiss' drama into the creation of Doctor Who and it's star is so much more than just a love letter to the show. An Adventure In Space and Time is driven by incredible performances, with one of the best being that of Brian Cox as Sydney…
"You said it yourself, bitch. We're the Guardians of the Galaxy."
If Transformers: Age of Extinction was a film that masturbated AT you, then Guardians of the Galaxy is the film that masturbated WITH you.
It's been a few years since a non-sequel or team up Marvel film and so Guardians of the Galaxy was a risky move. The characters are unknown, and there's a lot of them, and along with that the entire lore is huge and difficult to…
I cried. This is perfect. I am Groot. Nothing goes over Drax's head. He has excellent reflexes. Rocket isn't a raccoon. I am Groot. Star Lord? WHO? Sexy Aliens. I want The Inhumans film now. Stan Lee is a perv. Great film. I actually cried, genuine tears and the guy next to me too. He was crying, and we were crying and then we hugged because the film was so awesome and it's so emotional that I have actually seen…
