Rating: R Stars: Domhnall Gleeson, Rachel McAdams, Bill Nighy, Lydia Wilson, Lindsay Duncan, Tom Hollander Writer: Richard Curtis Director: Richard Curtis Distributor: Universal Release Date: November 1, 2013 There are moments – long stretches, even – when ABOUT TIME seems as though it’s perhaps too pleasant for its own good. It’s always agreeable and amusing – except when for its effective moments of melancholy and there are the trials and travails of dealing with life and love and time travel, but mostly, it’s a movie that urges us to live as though every day is worth experiencing twice, which is […]Read On »

Movie Review: JACK THE GIANT SLAYER

JACK THE GIANT SLAYER movie review | ©2013 Warner Bros.

Rating: PG-13 Stars: Nicholas Hoult, Eleanor Tomlinson, Stanley Tucci, Ian McShane, Bill Nighy, Ewan McGregor Writers: Darren Lemke and Christopher McQuarrie and Dan Studney, story by Darren Lemke & David Dobkin Director: Bryan Singer Distributor: Warner Bros. Release Date: February 28, 2013 First of all, let’s clear up one misconception that may or may not be popular: JACK THE GIANT SLAYER isn’t a hyperactive attempt to soup up the tale of Jack and the Beanstalk (at least, not wholly), but rather a marriage that familiar myth with a slightly less well-known but still famed folktale from Cornwall. In the lore, […]Read On »

Interview: WRATH OF THE TITANS composer Javier Navarrete fights for gods and men

In WRATH OF THE TITANS, a menagerie of ancient beasts and angry gods are unleashed upon the world of men, all due to the declining prayers directed at Zeus and his brethren on Mount Olympus. However, Hollywood’s cinematic worship towards ancient Greece’s supreme being, let alone legendary deities in general, is more than boisterous given the current films inspired by the mythic clashes of old. Not only are these pictures a boon for today’s CGI effects wizards to indulge in their Ray Harryhausen-inspired love of stop-motion giant monsters, but they’re equally heaven-sent for composers to unleash the own musically epic […]Read On »

Movie Review: WRATH OF THE TITANS

WRATH OF THE TITANS movie poster | ©2012 Warner Bros.

Rating: PG-13 Stars: Sam Worthington, Liam Neeson, Ralph Fiennes, Edgar Ramirez, Toby Kebbell, Rosamund Pike, Bill Nighy, Danny Huston, John Bell Writers: Dan Mazeau & David Leslie Johnson, story by Greg Berlanti & David Leslie Johnson & Dan Mazeau Director: Jonathan Liebesman Distributor: Warner Bros. Release Date: March 30, 2012 WRATH OF THE TITANS is actually more or less okay, but there are a number of elements that offer themselves up for nitpicking criticism at the outset. For one thing, while “titans” was being used figuratively to describe large and imposing beings and monsters in this movie’s forerunner, 2010’s CLASH […]Read On »

Exclusive Interview: ARTHUR CHRISTMAS director Sarah Smith finds a new spirit of Christmas

Finding a new take on the familiar Santa Claus adventures is a formidable task, but writer-director Sarah Smith and co-writer Peter Baynham were up for the challenge with the new animated film ARTHUR CHRISTMAS. A CGI co-production between Aardman Animation and Sony Pictures Animation, the story follows wayward Santa Claus offspring Arthur – a well-to-do nebbish who believes in the true spirit of Christmas, but will sadly never be next in line for the Santa job with his much more together older brother Steve – who has completely streamlined the Santa operation for dear old Santa dad with a state-of-the-art […]Read On »

Movie Review: ARTHUR CHRISTMAS

ARTHUR CHRISTMAS Movie Poster | ©2011 Sony Pictures

Rating: PG Stars (voices): James McAvoy, Hugh Laurie, Jim Broadbent, Bill Nighy, Ashley Jensen, Imelda Staunton Writers: Peter Baynham & Sarah Smith Director: Sarah Smith Distributor: Columbia Pictures Release Date: November 23, 2011 Some fantasy subgenres are so populous that they have arguably outgrown the designation of “sub”: the lovelorn vampire, the quest through mystical lands, the zombie apocalypse. Add to this list (and check it twice) the genre of Santa having gift delivery issues on Christmas Eve. The newest iteration of this last is ARTHUR CHRISTMAS, the first 3D CGI animation (as opposed to stop-motion Claymation) offering from Aardman, […]Read On »
