Rating-Matinee' I have to admit: Total Recall isn't really all that bad for a remake. Total Recall stars Colin Ferrel as a man whos life is down the shit, basically. Though, personally I don't see how anyone that has hot ass Kate Beckinsale as a wife can be miserable. So he goes to this place called Rekall that…
I hope you nice people do not mind some shameless self-promotion with the Podcast I work on, The Plot Hole at Playeraffinity.com. Episode 36 has been put on and the topics of discussion this week are the following:
Benedict Cumberbatch being cast in the Untitled Star Trek Sequel
Amanda Seyfred and Taylor Swift being cast/offered roles in the Les Mis film adaptation and I offer my opinion on who should…
TINKER TAILOR SOLDIER SPY is one of the best films of the year so far, and could easily get a nod at the Oscars in February. With an interesting plot, brilliant performances and great production values, it stands as the best spy thriller of the year.
Dreamworks has released the first trailer for their remake of 'Fright Night'. When Charlie (Anton Yelchin) discovers that his next door neighbor Jerry (Colin Farrell) is actually a vampire, he tries to warn those around him. However, when he's unable to convince them of the truth, he is forced to take care of the monster himself:
In addition to Yelchin and Farrel, the film also stars David Tennant, Christopher Mintz-Plasse, Toni…
Fright Night is a remake of a 1985 film of the same name. In the original, teenager Charlie Brewster and washed-up late-night horror movie host Peter Vincent team up to kill Charlie's new neighbor, Jerry Dandridge, who also happens to be a vampire who's been feeding off the town, and has set his eyes on Charlie's girlfriend. An even shorter plot…
The 64th Cannes Film Festival is currently in full swing and while we can't be there to cover it (*sigh* maybe next year), we thought we'd bring you up to speed on the developments so far and give you a quick snapshot of all the moving and shaking currently going on in Cannes, southern France:
Hugo Weaving ('The Matrix', 'Lord of the Rings') will once again be joining The Wachowski…
Thought I might get the ball rolling. This includes my prediction and my reasoning.
Best Picture Prediction: The King's Speech
This is a tough category to pick. The two clear frontrunners are 'The King's Speech' and 'The Social Network' but who will win is incredibly difficult. My reasoning is that TKS has won the PGA which is perhaps the greatest indicator of best picture during awards season. Whilst TSN won the golden globe the two awards do not…
After such a long time of waiting for me, the nominations for the Oscars are here once again! So, let's not dance around the lilies, let's get down to business when it comes to my thoughts on the major categories!
At the time NANNY McPHEE was released in the theater I wasn't a big fan of fairytale movies. I was digging the post-PRIZONER OF AZKABAN Harry Potters quite a bit, actually — but the rest? I was bored halfway through Narnia… Continue
The Imaginarium of Dr. Parnassus The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus is a fantastical morality tale, set in the present-day. It tells the story of Dr. Parnassus and his extraordinary ?Imaginarium?, a travelling show where members of the audience get an irresistible opportunity to choose between light and joy or darkness and gloom.…Continue

A Christmas Carol is the latest version of the already known story written by Charles Dickens. It is an spectacular feast for the viewer because it is its 3D format. The special effects are awesome. The story is good but I think that with the intention of focusing in the 3D and the CGI the left the plot a little sloppy. The rhythm is a little slow and it has some pointless scenes that it will not matter if they wen't in the movie. The cast is excellent. It includes voices of great actors such… Continue

Hello there, I’m Jamie and it’s time to watch films that are really not made for me, to increase my film knowledge and make me a better person. After all if you want to improve yourself then sometimes you have to leave your comfort zone.
So let’s begin with Bridget Jones’s Diary, a film with no aliens or giant sharks and very, very few zombies… Nope scratch that, no zombies at all. To top it all off it’s lead actress is someone whose name on a film poster is generally a sign that… Continue

Rotten Tomatoes rating: 81%
My rating: Full Price!!
The Film4 studio almost always makes damn good movies, if you ignore hiccups like Dogma or downright burps like Borat. Four Weddings and a Funeral, Slumdog Millionaire, Trainspotting. The occasional few piles of shite do not detract from its standing. So let’s look at one of their many good films.
When hit men Ray (Colin Farrell) and Ken… Continue

Keira Knightley and Colin Farrell are set to star in London Boulevard, a crime drama that marks the directing debut of The Departed screenwriter William Monahan. The film is based on the Ken Bruen novel, which Monahan adapted.
Mamma Mia! Now, I was hesitant to this, because as much as I love musicals, I'm not a fan of jukebox musicals. On the otherhand, ABBA is one of my favourite bands, so I gave it a spin... AND I LOVED IT!
Sure, I may be a little bias because I love every single actor in the movie, love the soundtrack, and love both people I saw it with, but I checked out IMDb and reportedly, I'm not the only one who liked it... and seeming it' was a broadway musical beforehand, it HAD to be good to be… Continue
