Harry Potter And The Deathly Hallows Part 1

August 5, 2011


I’ve just watched Harry Potter And The Deathly Hallows Part 1, in preparation for Part 2. I’ll be honest, I wasn’t expecting to like it and I was right. I didn’t like it, I loved it. I came late to reading the books. I read the first one when The Order Of The Phoenix was […]

30 Day Film Challenge: Day 30; Your Favorite Film This Time Last Year

May 10, 2011


This was easy. I’m not saying this is a fantastic film, or that it will stand the test of time, but this time last year, this was my favourite film. I saw this five times at the cinema. Three in 3D and twice in 2D. All of the criticisms levelled at it are valid. Dances […]

30 Day Film Challenge: Day 29; Your Favorite Film As a Kid

May 8, 2011


This was a hard decision, but I always kept coming back to this one. As I mentioned on day 7 when I spoke about Kramer Vs Kramer, my childhood was a bit off kilter. Everytime I saw this film, I always wanted to be Templeton. Weird I know, but I always liked him. I still […]

30 Day Film Challenge: Day 28; The Most Obscure Film You’ve Ever Seen

May 7, 2011


I class this film as obscure because I’ve only ever seen it twice. I haven’t been able to find it since, but I remember loving it. If you can find it, I’d recommend giving it a go.

30 Day Film Challenge: Day 27; Your Favorite Independent Film

May 6, 2011


I’m pretty sure this is an independent film. The directors own production company was responsible. Once Were Warriors is a searing film. It’s hard to watch because of the subject matter, but enthralling at the same time. It’s about a man whose own demons cause his family to suffer. It’s also about the strength of […]

30 Day Film Challenge: Day 26; Your Favorite Foreign Language Film

May 4, 2011


I love foreign language films and this is one of my favourites. It shows the reality and the futility of war. It’s beautifully written and performed. That’s the trailer, now here are two of my favourite scenes from the film. The lack of subtitles in the clips adds to the emotion. Watch this film. It’s […]

30 Day Film Challenge: Day 25; Your Favorite Documentary Film

May 3, 2011


I’m not normally a fan of documentary films, so a film has to really intrigue me with it’s subject for me to even consider watching it. This movie is a supreme example of just that type of film. Cave Of Forgotten Dreams is just a brilliant film. Breathtaking in it’s simplicity, it’s sense of wonder […]
