Skyfall (2012)

The Bond backlash had started before I even set foot into the cinema to watch “Skyfall”. After such universally amazing plaudits from critics and moviegoers alike, rumblings of discontent had started to emerge online and within earshot. The 23rd James Bond motion picture in the franchise’s 50th anniversary year clearly sought to capture a celebration of all things 007. Did they achieve that? Continue reading

John Carter (2012)

Written and directed by Pixar’s Andrew Stanton, “John Carter” (2012) has long been derided as the box office flop of the year. Its leading actor, Taylor Kitsch, similarly has been labelled box office poison given that he also starred in the poorly received Summer blockbuster, “Battleship”(2012). Hence, my expectations were fairly low when I finally … Continue reading

“Super 8” (2011)

Directed by the saviour of Hollywood, J.J. Abrams, the plot follows a group of high school kids in 1980’s backwater Ohio who want to make a ‘super 8’ movie to enter a competition. The real competition though is the fight for the heart of the movie’s leading lady, Alice Dainard, between its chubby director, Charles … Continue reading

Hobo With A Shotgun (2011)

A homeless man (Rutger Hauer) rides a freight train into a new town. World weary, this old drifter hopes for a quiet life in this new setting and modestly aspires to buy a $49.99 lawnmower. So far so “Straight Story”. Heartwarming stuff. Lovely in fact. “Welcome to F**ktown!” bellows the corrupt Chief-of-Police. It quickly transpires … Continue reading
