There and back again – Martin Freeman’s tale

I recently heard – well, a few weeks ago – that The Hobbit would not be a single film, but a trilogy. Apparently the prequel to the Lord of the Rings trilogy will be drip-fed to us Middle Earth fans in three instalments. The first, An Unexpected Journey, is out this year. Secondly, The Desolation… Continue reading There and back again – Martin Freeman’s tale

Brisfest 2012: A twisted tale of badgers and burlesque

Along with 20,000 other music fans, I attended the first day of Brisfest music festival yesterday. For those unaware of its origins it was created following the demise of the Ashton Court Festival, which started in the 1970s but was unable to continue as a free event and sadly closed. Organisers created Brisfest in 2007… Continue reading Brisfest 2012: A twisted tale of badgers and burlesque

Chronicle – the ‘found footage’ superhero film

I recently saw a film that had been on my watch list for a while, Chronicle. A new twist on the increasingly crowded superhero genre. When writer Max Landis (son of the legendary Director John Landis) and first-time Director Josh Trank pitched this to the studio, they described it as ‘Blair Witch meets Carrie’, which… Continue reading Chronicle – the ‘found footage’ superhero film

Brilliance of Brad Pitt: his top 10 best performances

For this post I’d like to discuss the career and my chosen favourite roles of Mr William Bradley Pitt. But where are some of his recent critically acclaimed films you may ask? Well, I can only list films I’ve seen and I have yet to see Tree of Life, Moneyball and Babel, so cannot include… Continue reading Brilliance of Brad Pitt: his top 10 best performances

My top 10 supercool film soundtracks

The Life Aquatic (Wes Anderson) Two reasons this is my top choice, Seu Jorge and David Bowie. Seu Jorge’s take on Bowie tracks perfectly complemented the film. Standouts for me include his versions of ‘Life on Mars’, ‘Space Oddity and ‘Rebel Rebel’. Oh, and ‘Changes’, it’s beautiful. Pulp Fiction (Quentin Tarantino) It’s hard to select… Continue reading My top 10 supercool film soundtracks

Who are the top 20 most intense actors of recent times?

I do like an intense character and performance when I’m watching a film. Someone who literally rivets and welds you to the screen, look away at your peril. Some people probably like their films bright and breezy. I don’t mind those too, but there’s something about intensity that leaves a lasting impression. You remember those… Continue reading Who are the top 20 most intense actors of recent times?

Bourne again? Jeremy Renner and his green pills – Tony Gilroy’s legacy

Does it strike you as funny that of two films that are currently out at the cinema – one a remake, one a sequel of sorts – both are to do with memory loss? I am, of course, talking about the Total Recall and the Bourne Legacy, the latter of which I saw recently and… Continue reading Bourne again? Jeremy Renner and his green pills – Tony Gilroy’s legacy
