For the fanboys, the Watchman movie has been a long time coming, for sci-fi fans, it looks like a spectacular effects driven event. Does it satisfy? Yes, both as a movie and as a faithfull conversion of comic book to screen.
I think I am in a minority of one. This Pop Group to Stage to Film phenomenon has taken the world by storm, but left me wanting both my money and hours of my life back.
Yes, this film has broken box office and DVD records world wide, yes, it was up for Oscars, but I hated it.
I left the 49th The Times bfi London Film Festival showing of The Wendell Baker Story with a big feel-good factor.
It's not going to take the world by storm, but it is a charming, lovely, funny, touching and unusual movie.
I laughed, oh did I laugh. So much so, I cried too. This could have been a shocking buddy movie, but the writing, the comedic performances and the simple concept, make this my favorite comedy of the year
So close to today and yet not far from the future of Mad Max. Post apocalypse without the nuclear war. The rich wide-boys of city financing use the deserted motorways of the world as a battlefield over promotions and contract bids to run countries and war campaigns.
Van Helsing is a romp through the world of Dracula, Frankenstien and other horror characters of that era. Enjoyable throughout, a couple of moments that make you jump and geography that would fail any high school exam.
