Brokeback Mountain: Epic love story?

Brokeback Mountain: Epic love story?


  Award winning, controversial and the “butt”( sorry),  of many jokes  Brokeback Mountain caused quite the stir when it came out back in 2005.  So what was all the fuss about? And did it deserve all the acclaim it received? I was board this week and came across this in on  Netflix so I decided … Continue reading

Django Unchained Review

Django Unchained Review


Quentin Tarantino is a renowned writer and director. He has legions of diehard fans the world over, numerous awards for his work, and he dabbles in various genre’s. He is a visionary, but for me, he is also hit or miss. I absolutely love Reservoir Dogs, I enjoyed Kill Bill Vol 2 and I adore his … Continue reading

The Master Review


I am not a particular fan of Michael Bay, but I have to give him his due; he can stage action scenes like no one else, and his style is to admired. Not so much his story-telling abilities as his films place action above story, dialogue with plots that are thin, flimsy and flat, and … Continue reading

Cloud Atlas Review

Cloud Atlas Review


The American Heritage Dictionary defines a sextet as a musical composition for six instruments or six voices, and Cloud Atlas is the cinematic equivalent; six stories in six genres on the same theme forming one interlinking vision. The vision is ultimately a glorious, beautiful and mind-bending movie that would take multiple viewings to appreciate fully, … Continue reading

Safety Not Guaranteed Review


Safety Not Guaranteed had me intrigued from the moment I first read about it. A small indie film that’s plot revolves around a group trying to find the person responsible for a classified ad regarding time travel; a neat premise. The fact that it stars both Mark Duplass and Aubrey Plaza, both of which I thoroughly … Continue reading

James Bond has been around for over 50 years now, an achievement the film proudly displays once the credits begin to scroll at the end of Skyfall. Now I am not the biggest Bond fan, nor have I seen most of the films as I primarily started with Brosnan and Goldeneye, but even those films … Continue reading

Searching for Sugar Man Review


Swedish Documentarian Malik Bendjelloul and his team have mined a rich source for a documentary, for seldom do detective stories, music and true life align in this genre. In the late 70’s a musician named Sixto Rodriguez recorded two albums; Cold Fact and Coming from Reality. Despite good reviews from magazines both albums became staggering … Continue reading

The Amazing Spider Man Review


The Amazing Spider Man There was quite a lot of hype going on for the reboot of Spider Man in the cinema world. Maybe not as anticipated as DC’s The Dark Knight Rises, but still enough hype to catch many peoples’ interests. Crowds were definitely flocking to the theater, a lot of them people who … Continue reading

Bolt Review

Bolt Review


Bolt  Bolt is Disney’s second attempt at making a computer generated movie WITHOUT the involvement of Pixar (albeit, John Lasseter is still executive producer.). Their last attempt was Chicken Little, and quite frankly, that movie was weak in almost all categories, and didn’t even come close to the quality of Pixar films. So, does Bolt … Continue reading

Metropolis Review

Metropolis Review


Having conceived Babel, yet unable to build it themselves, they had thousands to build it for them. But those who toiled knew nothing of the dreams of those who planned. And the minds that planned the Tower of Babel cared nothing for the workers who built it. The hymns of praise of the few became … Continue reading
