Guardians of the Galaxy Review

Monday, 28 July 2014 00:00

Despite an overriding sense that Marvel Studios is intent on sticking to safe blockbusters that fit an increasingly formulaic house style – and recent news that further backs up that notion - 2014 has actually been a year of refreshing projects for the studio. Coming off the back of 70's espionage throwback Captain America: The Winter Soldier is Guardians of the Galaxy, a fun, fast-paced space opera written and directed by James Gunn, the man behind twisted dark comedies Slither and Super.


Boyhood Review

Tuesday, 22 July 2014 19:32

While Texan director Richard Linklater has done his best work following his characters doing very little but living their lives, from the twenty-somethings in Slacker to the teens of Dazed and Confused or the lovers in his Before trilogy, none of it really compares to the achievement that is Boyhood, a stunning and intimate portrait of life itself. 


Begin Again Review

Sunday, 20 July 2014 13:35

After his heartfelt modern musical Once became a surprise hit, winning an Oscar and inspiring a Broadway musical, Irish director John Carney fell off the map with a series of minor efforts that failed to make any impact. He's now back with Begin Again, another film that focuses on lost people who find a connection through music, only this time it's a big, glossy Hollywood romcom loaded with big names and pop star cameos.


Dawn of the Planet of the Apes Review

Saturday, 19 July 2014 14:00

Back in 2011, Rupert Wyatt's prequel/reboot Rise of the Planet of the Apes surprised pretty much everyone by being a smarter-than-average blockbuster that made a computer-animated ape a sympathetic and compelling character. While that film benefited from low expectations, its follow up arrives with a lot of hype and incumbent director Matt Reeves had a big job on his hands ensuring Dawn of the Planet of the Apes lived up to it.


EIFF 2014: Joe Review

Monday, 14 July 2014 21:31

After taking an unexpected turn into slick, studio comedies, David Gordon Green made a semi-comeback to smaller, independent fare with last year's Prince Avalanche, a film that mixed both his broad comic sensibilities with his introspective indie roots. With his latest film Joe, a richly textured rural drama, Green takes another step back to his early, artsy ones.


EIFF 2014: Let Us Prey Review

Thursday, 10 July 2014 22:00

The opening sequence of Let Us Prey, a visually striking scene which sees a mysterious figure standing on the seafront surrounded by shrieking crows, sets the tone for an uneven but enjoyable exercise in genre filmmaking from debut director Brian O'Malley.


EIFF 2014: Hide and Seek Review

Tuesday, 08 July 2014 21:57

In an attempt to escape the rigmarole of daily life in the modern world, four good-looking London twentysomethings ditch their conventional life in the city in favour of a private commune in the countryside, in Joanna Coates feature film debut Hide and Seek.


EIFF 2014: X/Y Review

Monday, 07 July 2014 20:57

Starting with a nasty breakup, X/Y follows the couple as they go their separate ways and opens out to follow their two friends in four separate but intersecting chapters, giving a fresh spin on an otherwise standard relationship drama. Sophomore director Ryan Piers Williams focuses on the lives of these four thirtysomethings as they try to get a handle on their messy love lives.
