It turns out hell does have a fury like a woman scorned – a father’s loss. Just ask Liam Neeson in Taken and now Mel Gibson in his new ‘actioner’, Edge of Darkness. After a good few years dedicating himself to his behind the camera endeavours, Gibson returns to his -just this side of sanity- best with Edge of Darkness. Bad guys beware, you went after his daughter, now he’s coming for you!
Though Toy Story 2 3D is not the immersive, mind-blowing experience that watching Avatar is, there’s no denying that this film only gets better with the added technology. And the difference is that – unlike Avatar- Toy Story 2 never had to rely on its special effects to captivate your attention.
If you’re one of the growing millions packing your suitcases, planning to jet far, far away from the misery of January, beware! There are many pyschological pitfalls to avoid whilst airborne. The films you watch on your journey to paradise significantly influence your sanity. Luckily, we’ve created a fool-proof guide of What Not To Watch. Adjust your seatbelt, put up your tray-table and join us in the skies…
2009 certainly brought us a few cinematic corkers, from sci-fi epic Avatar to comic-book crunching goodness from Christopher Nolan’s The Dark Knight and Watchmen. But it wasn’t all wham, bam and explosions – will 2010 be a year of smarter movies? Judging this list… maybe.
“It is better,” said the essayist and moralist Joseph Joubert, “to debate a question without settling it than to settle a question without debating it.” In the spirit of such a great man that we just found out about on Wikipedia, we present you, gentle reader, with the first in what may well be a series of debates on the state of modern film.
There’s a lot to worry about when it comes to the delicate, supple young minds of our children. But rather than bubblewrapping the family computer and locking the shed, maybe we should look a bit deeper into what kids films tell our children about life. We’ve examined (in great, hasty detail) the classic films kids love to watch and we must say, the results are urine-inducing…
We’ve just got wind of this: The new international Toy Story 3 trailer. Despite the fact that the first half of it is taken up with some sort of half-baked memory-jogging clip show (who needs reminding of Woody and Buzz? Seriously!) the rest of it gives us a pretty good idea as to what we’re looking forward to in the much-anticipated third installment.
As much as we love to moan about the ‘too good to be true’ on-screen relationship, there exists something far worse; the utterly baffling on-screen relationship.
