Whiplash Review

Monday, 26 January 2015 22:28

Damien Chazelle's searing sophomore effort Whiplash manages to take the unlikely subject of jazz drumming and craft an impossibly exhilarating master-and-apprentice film that takes a thrilling, if occasionally implausible, look at the price of ambition, the drive for artistic perfection and the boundaries of a mentor/pupil relationship.

Taken 3 Review

Thursday, 22 January 2015 23:15

"It ends here", reads the poster for Taken 3 and after this insipid threequel, we can only hope they stay true to their word. The film's star Liam Neeson certainly didn't, claiming after the disappointing Taken 2 that he wouldn't be back for a third. Clearly a hefty paycheck or contractual obligation persuaded Neeson to return to the franchise that kick-started his much lauded but actually quite lacklustre career as an old-age action star.

Oscar Nominations 2015: The Predictions

Tuesday, 13 January 2015 17:23

This Thursday, Chris Pine, Alfonso Cuaron, JJ Abrams and Academy President Cheryl Boone-Isaacs will take to the stage in the Samuel Goldwyn Theater in Beverley Hills to announce the nominees for the 2015 Academy Awards. It's a slightly strange year in that it's taken a while for a real front runner to emerge and now that we have one (Boyhood), it's actually a pick that not many will take issue with. With Birdman looking like the only other heavyweight contender, there's a whole host of films vying for nominations across the board, even if many of the top line categories already look like sure things.

Best of the Year: Top 20 Films of 2014

Saturday, 10 January 2015 00:02

Christmas and New Year have come and gone, drawing a close to 2014, a year which produced a mixed bag of films. British film in particular has had its ups and downs, producing some incredible fare, from inventive thriller Locke and offbeat character study Frank to moving crowdpleaser Pride and excellent family film Paddington. But on the flipside, there was dreadful TV adaptation Mrs Brown's Boys: D'Movie, smug Simon Pegg vehicle Hector and the Search for Happiness and widely loathed kids efforts Postman Pat and Pudsey the Dog.

Peter Jackson's second stab at Middle Earth has finally come to an end with The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies, the third instalment in a relentlessly epic and tediously drawn out adaptation of J.R.R. Tolkein's novel. As with the previous instalments – 2012's An Unexpected Journey and 2013's The Desolation of SmaugFive Armies is an occasionally entertaining but often immensely dull affair that fails to justify any creative reasoning behind splitting one novel into three films.

The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1 Review

Tuesday, 16 December 2014 22:32

With each instalment, The Hunger Games franchise moves further away from the flimsy young adult fare it's so often lumped in with and closer to something more mature and more intelligent than most big-budget franchises, young adult or otherwise. Unfortunately, the commerce-driven decision to split the series' third book into two films, ala Harry Potter and Twilight, has left The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1 feeling like a film that's itching to get going but has to wait for its chance.
