I'm not getting into the purposes of film, but The Hurt Locker was too preposterous to be given the realistic treatment. I went in expecting some insight into the life of a bomb disposal squad in...

What a film! I thought it was a fantastic existential road trip. It's sad and damn funny in equal measures.

I thought it was crap, perhaps the most overrated movie ever. I posted this in September about it:

I was really looking forward to this, particularly because of it's glowing...

His soundtrack was wonderful for Amelie. So whimsical and appropriate for such a quirky little film!

I agree that the political and environmental themes were necessary for the plot and I had no problems with them but it was all those throwaway remarks and as I say, platitudes that really snapped me...

I saw Avatar the other day and have to say I came out feeling pretty neutral about it. It was very predictable and corny with a fair few political platitudes heavy handedly shoehorned in and it did...

Ah, that's strange I didn't really see Let the Right One In as a horror! It seemed to focus more on the characters and their difficult situations rather than any sort of impending evil :-S I thought...

I hadn't seen a second from the film before watching it so it was all new to me; trailers reveal WAY too much these days so I steer well clear. I saw the US trailer after the film and was amazed to...

Luna, I haven't seen the film but I really don't expect it to be. It'll essentially be Pocahontas shot through with science fiction using whizz bang 3D and CG on a scale never seen before. I'm sure...

I'm leaving my brain at the door for Avatar, it's going to be a balls-to-the-wall special effects blow out. Can't wait.

Actually I also saw Up recently in 3D and was rather disappointed in the same way as tsa was. I think it might be one of the weakest Pixar films I've seen despite it showcasing (again) their mastery...

I'd personally argue that Wall-E is one of Disney's best, never mind Pixar's! Of course the opening is the strongest part of the film but the ingenuity doesn't stop and it has some strong messages to...

Moon was only on for 4 days at our cinema so I'm glad we got in while we could. Seriously it's one of the best, if not the best film I've seen this year. The Hurt Locker can go and blow itself up for...
