Warm Bodies – Review

tt1588173 Warm Bodies – Review

Film Review by FilmFellaHenry – 2/10

Cashing in on the current zombie fad comes Warm Bodies, a supposed horror comedy adapted from Isaac Marion’s same titled novel. The setup is a standard zombie holocaust, humans walling themselves up in a city district, while the rest of America shambles about on the prowl for fresh brains. R (Nicholas Hoult) is one such walking corpse, aimlessly roaming an undead infested US airport, trying to recall a forgotten past while taking part in the occasional human hunt.

Review by FilmFellaDarren – 8.5/10

No film genre is in as healthy a state right now as animation. Fans of the genre are enjoying something of a golden age. Just look at the strength in the animation category at the Oscars for evidence of how many inventive animated features have been made in the last year. Disney were the original animated trailblazers, but their achievements of late have been surpassed by the likes of Pixar and DreamWorks. Recent Disney features like Tangled and The Princess and the Frog were beautifully made but they were not as progressive as Read more of this post

Hitchcock – Review

Film Review by FilmFellaHenry – 7/10

As with many great directors, Alfred Hitchcock was a rather odd man. Possessed by a morbid fascination with death, a lifelong dread of police (the fear of being pulled over prevented him from learning to drive) and a wickedly dark sense of humour, Hitchcock frequently worked such quirks into his films, giving them a unique, personal originality. Even the production process was riddled with eccentricities, from a staunch resistance to location shooting Read more of this post

Cloud Atlas – Review

Film Review by FilmFellaHenry – 9.5/10

The world of film can be a fickle mistress. On one hand, it promises to indulge your escapist desires, whisking you away to worlds far better than this; on the other, it usually delivers what can at best be labelled a mis-sold lesson in disappointment. Years can pass, auditoriums flooded with mediocre celluloid, the whiff of greatness a bygone memory. Read more of this post

Film Review by FilmFellaLozz – 7/10

Following a ten-year spell of dabbling in motion capture animated features, including Polar Express, Beowulf and A Christmas Carol, Robert Zemeckis has chosen to return to live action movie making with this, Flight. He has been quoted as saying that he outright dreads making live action films; so why has he come back? Read more of this post

By FilmFellaDarren

At the start of every year I have a sense of trepidation about what the coming 365 days has install for cinema. I suspect, somewhat irrationally, that this will be the year that quality cinema starts to diminish. I worry that this will be the year the studios will only make films that cater for the multiplex target audience, that being 15 year old teenagers; Read more of this post

Les Misérables – Review

tt1707386Les Misérables – Review

Film Review by FilmFellaJames – 7/10

This is a tricky review to write, I can tell ya.  The problem with Les Misérables, is that the material is HUGELY popular and offending the masses, (as seen during the June Rebellion scenes in this the big screen movie version of a HUGELY popular big theatre musical version based loosely on a novel by Victor Hugo.) is not generally considered to be a good plan.

Coming (Too) Soon

Movie trailers. Some are great. Some are specially made. Some are for awesome movies. But then there are some; well, there are some that are so poor or for movies that you know will be downright god awful, that we can’t allow them to just slip under the radar singing and dancing, pretending to be worthy of our eyeballs and eardrums; Read more of this post
