When Lars von Trier took his seat at the press conference following the première of his latest flick ANTICHRIST at last years Cannes Film Festival an aggrieved British journalist famously demanded that the notorious Danish director explain and justify why he made this movie. Although it is not unusual for clueless journalists to try and turn a controversial work by an auteur into a footnote sensational article, this time it was quite poignant to have one of cinema’s greatest living artists explain himself, since the dramatically overplayed outrage of this journalist and many of his peers was actually justified by…
Couple of Weeks ago Milly Boele from the Netherlands disappeared. The last thing we knew is that she was talking with her mum on the phone when she hung up saying: “There is a man at the front door”. After this conversation nobody has heard or seen a thing about her. She just vanished…
I know it is a bit too late to write a little something about VALENTINE’S DAY, but I just have seen it and thought I would give you guys at least some insight on whether this movie is worth it or not. And perhaps you can still watch it with your other half on some rainy day or save it for next year’s Valentine.
In for something different? You sure? With a cast like Ewan McGregor, Jeff Bridges and George Clooney you still can watch something you are not expecting. Well with THE MEN WHO STARE AT GOATS you are in for one weird experience.
WHATEVER WORKS is a movie you probably never have heard of. You will not have seen and never will. And that actually makes me sad, because WHATEVER WORKS brings the viewer an entertaining way on how to live life and how to deal with everyday issues.
When Sneaky and myself wanted to see one of the early screenings of SHERLOCK HOLMES it seemed all seats were taken. Nothing new here of course, because early screenings are always sold out when it comes to “big” movies. But with this case we tried to get some seats that were reserved by others. The system failed on us and the seats could not be given to anyone else. So to actually get into the screening we decided to get tickets for another movie. We got past the checkpoints and we snuck to the seats we knew weren’t sold. We…
When a friend told me about AVATAR I told him I heard about it, but wasn’t planning on seeing it premiere day. Fortune however wanted me to see this movie and when I got off from work a little bit earlier, I decided to go and watch it. New movies are best seen on their first day right?
Those of you who follow my Twitter will know that I watch more movies than I am able to write about (this is a silent hint to follow me). I still got some on the drawing board like Disney’s UP and Woody Allen’s WHATEVER WORKS, but my latest movie was so awful, I just had to put aside the more decent movies for this abomination. The movie in question NEW MOON, part 2 of The Twilight Saga, with TWILIGHT being the first one which was released last year and on DVD a couple of weeks ago.
After THE LORD OF THE RINGS and KING KONG we haven’t seen much from Peter Jackson. But with DISTRICT 9 we get glimpse of what he is capable of when producing even the weirdest of stories. DISTRICT 9 really is that, a weird story with an even weirder ending. The movie is already released on DVD even though some cinemas in Europe are still showing it. So watch in cinema, DVD or wait for the TV screening? Go ahead and read on, beware of the big fat spoiler at the end of this review!
Michael Jackon’s THIS IS IT shows the last couple of months before his demise. You get to see what he was planning to show all of us and what surprises he had stored for the fans. Besides fragments of his show, people whom he worked with are being interviewed as well. So is this really it? Can we close the story that is Michael Jackson with this movie, or do we feel something is still missing and another chapter is still required?
