About-Time-2013-Movie-Poster-600x949

The name Richard Curtis instantly evokes the movies Four Weddings and a Funeral, Bridget Jones’s Diary and Love, Actually. So going into this film, I had certain expectations. Mainly that this would be yet another charming romantic comedy, with many mishaps for the destined couple along the way. So it was to my great surprise that About Time was very different to Curtis’s usual fare. Though this story is about love, it is also about dealing with loss and that little thing called “destiny” The plot of the movie is…

World War Z had a rather chequered production. So much so, that the studios hired Lost alumnis Drew Goddard and Mathew Lindelof to re-write the ending. So I went into the movie mildly apprehensive as I didn’t know what to expect. Thankfully I was surprised at how entertaining the film was. The plot of the movie is pretty simple. Gerry Lane, Pitt, is just spending a rather normal morning with his family in Glasgow…. I mean Philidelphia. While stuck in traffic, all hell breaks loose, forcing Lane, his wife and…

*Warning: Review Contains Spoilers* Warm Bodies had the promise of being a slick, smart zombie movie. Yet for me it seemed to try to be too edgy and ended up being unsure what genre it was actually aiming for. What was really puzzling was the fact that I did enjoy the film, but it didn’t match up to my all-time favourite zombie comedy, Shaun of the Dead. True, both movies are aiming for very different markets, but I still felt it could have pushed the envelope a bit more. The plot is…

Joint Review – Warning: Contains Spoilers GEMMA I went to the cinema at a slight disadvantage to Laura. Having not seen the previous movie nor having read any the books apart from the first one, my review is based purely on from a movie review point of view. The fact that I hadn’t seen part 1 should have meant that I was at least a bit lost on what was happening, but due to the coverage and the fact I had swotted up on the previous movie beforehand, I found…

I’ve been a fan of the Underworld movies, and have watched all four now, Underworld: Awakening being the latest instalment. The film takes place in the future when the world has discovered vampires and lycans exist. This has discovery has led to a war and the mass culling of vampires and lycans. It opens with Selene, the lovely Kate Beckinsale, racing to find her lover and vampire and lycan hybrid Michael Corvin (Scott Speed). A scary fall in the water, a strange bomb and Selene becomes cryogenically frozen. Flash forward 12…

It has been fifteen years since the first Men In Black film came out. Will Smith and Tommy Lee Jones have gone on to other projects, each carving a name out for themselves in the industry. So it came as a bit of surprise when it was announced that a third film in the franchise would be coming out, especially as it had been languishing in “Development Hell” since the last film in 2002. And in many ways, that should have been where it stayed. The film starts off pretty much like…

Red Riding Hood

Let’s start with the cinema tagline: “From the director of Twilight comes this breathtaking vision of 700 year old legend”. Then let me say I couldn’t help it, I know it’s not necessarily cool any longer to love both the Twilight books and films, but I don’t care, I love them anyway! And so as soon as I saw the trailer for this movie I was sucked in. It had to be good… Right? This is of course a remake of the original fairytale. Set in a medieval village, which…
