  • Eye in the Sky Movie Review
    and Mirren s increasingly exasperated colonel And it s a testament to director Gavin Hood Ender s Game the Oscar winning Tsotsi that he is able to keep things gripping and wholly unpredictable for the entire segment and beyond The moral questions and dilemmas are plentiful What does conscience mean in modern technologically armed warfare Where does legality factor in when fighting terrorism Is one life worth sacrificing to save the many Eye in the Sky asks these sorts of probing difficult questions in forceful fashion without leading us to easy answers or any sort of trite spoon fed conclusion It s not the first war film to come at it from the drone perspective last year s Good Kill flew in the same ethically dubious skies and it surely won t be the last But as it stands it s a tightly wound complex thriller that plays as much on our moral compass as it does on our jangling nerves aaron paul alan rickman barkhad abdi eye in the sky featured gavin hood helen mirren movie reviews About the Author I m a freelance film reviewer and blogger with over 7 years of experience writing for various different websites In addition to my running editing and writing for Thoughts On Film I am also the freelance Film TV editor for Scotland based student magazine website Scotcampus I have a passion for all types of cinema and have a particular love for foreign language film especially South Korean and Japanese cinema Favourite films include The Big Lebowski Pulp Fiction and 2001 A Space Odyssey Twitter Facebook Related Posts Tweet Leave A Response Click here to cancel reply Name required Email required Website Comment Like Us On Facebook Follow Us On Twitter TOF UK on Twitter Follow TOF UK 405 people

    to get used to a new school where she s told to forget homeland customs There s a keen sense of muscular gritty realism that spares none of the gory details of this family s fraught situation explosive moments of horrific violence and all too believable domestic disputes alike that are meritoriously punctuated with enigmatic visual flights of fancy It s a magical realism that brings to mind Benh Zeitlin s Oscar nominated Beasts of the Southern Wild not least in its use of animals specifically a motif of an elephant emerging from blurred closeness to brilliant clarity to create a metaphorical yet strangely tangible cinematic landscape With well written characters subtly affecting performances and a commitment to uncompromising storytelling Audiard paints a rich believable and powerfully sympathetic picture of the effect of immigration on lives and what it means to find a place to call home dheepan featured jacques audiard movie reviews About the Author I m a freelance film reviewer and blogger with over 7 years of experience writing for various different websites In addition to my running editing and writing for Thoughts On Film I am also the freelance Film TV editor for Scotland based student magazine website Scotcampus I have a passion for all types of cinema and have a particular love for foreign language film especially South Korean and Japanese cinema Favourite films include The Big Lebowski Pulp Fiction and 2001 A Space Odyssey Twitter Facebook Related Posts Tweet Leave A Response Click here to cancel reply Name required Email required Website Comment Like Us On Facebook Follow Us On Twitter TOF UK on Twitter Follow TOF UK 405 people follow TOF UK NadiaHon DocShort SmokeyB Emfounda CinemaCo Artsploi Beggar M greekman RonaWill gilliany Latest Reviews Hush Movie Review April 18 2016 0 The Jungle

  • The Huntsman: Winter's War
    chemistry between the two needed to make their love story connect Rarely has the heroine of her own story been so dutifully chucked from a follow up and Snow White s non appearance save for one fleeting flashback is perhaps the real kick in the teeth of this one Some behind the scenes controversy might be to blame or is simply that the studio somehow thinks audiences care more about The Huntsman than Snow White simply because it s Thor playing him Star power alone does not a good film make Whatever the reason her absence is distractingly conspicuous throughout It s not completely without its pleasures there s some fun to be had with British acting treasures like Nick Frost Rob Brydon and Sheridan Smith as the comical dwarves chucking in knowing one liners and colloquial insults Their light hearted banter as the band of heroes go on their quest through enchanted forests and the like to retrieve the famous mirror that s no longer on the wall is welcome comic relief from an otherwise quite drab affair Bereft of much real invention or feeling and beset by instantly forgettable set pieces this is a rather lumpen fantasy follow up that for all its CGI bells and whistles falls disappointingly flat charlize theron chis hemsworth emily blunt featured jessica chastain movie reviews snow white and the huntsman the huntsman winter s war About the Author I m a freelance film reviewer and blogger with over 7 years of experience writing for various different websites In addition to my running editing and writing for Thoughts On Film I am also the freelance Film TV editor for Scotland based student magazine website Scotcampus I have a passion for all types of cinema and have a particular love for foreign language film

  • Midnight Special Movie Review
    date he defies expectations nonetheless He s usually known for playing strange outsiders but here he brings a quiet intensity and genuine emotion to the role of a sympathetic and devoted father doing what he feels his best for his unique son Edgerton is also terrific as the stoic right hand man on this most dangerous mission of evasion and discovery while Kirsten Dunst is the best she s been in years as a bewildered mother doing her best to protect her son Star Wars fans will get a kick out of seeing Adam Driver as an expert called in to help the FBI figure out just what the heck this little boy is and what he can do And relative newcomer Lieberher belies his inexperience bringing a great mix of natural presence and captivating peculiarity that the key role needed With Midnight Special Nichols has crafted a strange compelling deeply fascinating piece of cinema that takes its cues from other films and morphs them into something that feels fresh and ambitious That ambiguous sense of asking more questions than it s prepared to answer may frustrate some viewers But it s an enthralling treat for those willing to go with it alive with an atmospheric sense of danger emotion and good old fashioned wide eyed wonderment adam driver featured jeff nichols joel edgerton kirsten dunst michael shannon midnight special movie reviews About the Author I m a freelance film reviewer and blogger with over 7 years of experience writing for various different websites In addition to my running editing and writing for Thoughts On Film I am also the freelance Film TV editor for Scotland based student magazine website Scotcampus I have a passion for all types of cinema and have a particular love for foreign language film especially

  • Black Mountain Poets Movie Review
    them Although shot in a mere five days the chemistry between Alice Lowe and Dolly Wells is palpable they re an effective double act that are at once funny poignant and most importantly believable as sisters While Tom Cullen brings a compelling tenderness to being very much the straight man in this particular trio The director is clearly having a lot of fun in this often cinematically unexplored and patently off kilter world of post modern poetry Even though it occasionally lapses into caricature in how it portrays the self important and overly manufactured personalities of its adherents there s a general sense of good will and affection towards them too It s far from perfect the ultra loose structure and low stakes for the central characters ultimately makes it feel like a journey without a destination in mind YetBut this endearingly offbeat and thoroughly British farce provides small pleasures in spades and is a telling sign that improvised comedy is still a valid approach to storytelling alice lowe black mountain poets dolly wells featured jamie adams movie reviews tom cullen About the Author I m a freelance film reviewer and blogger with over 7 years of experience writing for various different websites In addition to my running editing and writing for Thoughts On Film I am also the freelance Film TV editor for Scotland based student magazine website Scotcampus I have a passion for all types of cinema and have a particular love for foreign language film especially South Korean and Japanese cinema Favourite films include The Big Lebowski Pulp Fiction and 2001 A Space Odyssey Twitter Facebook Related Posts Tweet Leave A Response Click here to cancel reply Name required Email required Website Comment Like Us On Facebook Follow Us On Twitter TOF UK on Twitter Follow TOF

  • Couple in a Hole Movie Review
    arisen is expertly teased throughout the film by second time director Geens He uses the isolated setting amidst a wild surrounding landscape to brilliant effect simultaneously as a metaphor for the couple s state of mind and to create a palpable sense of unease and otherworldliness not unlike Jonathan Glazer s Under The Skin or Lars von Trier s Antichrist The film would not have worked quite as well had it not been for the two fantastic lead performances Dickie is deeply impressive as always bringing a believable sense of primal anguish to the more outwardly unhinged of the couple while Higgins is heartbreaking as the husband forced to hold their lives and strained marriage together Though it threatens to become a tad overwrought in the home stretch for the most part Couple In A Hole is a film of great power thanks to bold direction and a pair of terrific leads This couple s actions may seem less than human at times but their story ends up being deeply humane featured kate dickie movie reviews paul higgins tom geens About the Author I m a freelance film reviewer and blogger with over 7 years of experience writing for various different websites In addition to my running editing and writing for Thoughts On Film I am also the freelance Film TV editor for Scotland based student magazine website Scotcampus I have a passion for all types of cinema and have a particular love for foreign language film especially South Korean and Japanese cinema Favourite films include The Big Lebowski Pulp Fiction and 2001 A Space Odyssey Twitter Facebook Related Posts Tweet Leave A Response Click here to cancel reply Name required Email required Website Comment Like Us On Facebook Follow Us On Twitter TOF UK on Twitter Follow TOF UK

  • Eddie the Eagle Movie Review
    world plot wise it shares many of the hallmarks of everything from Rocky to Cool Runnings and many more in between But what it lacks in originality it more than makes up for in heart spirit charm and a good natured will towards trying your best and never giving up even in the face of near certain defeat Fletcher s film hasn t got a bad bone in its body and with his impressive third directorial outing manages to conjure a great sense of irresistible sweetness whether it s in its affections towards its characters the cracking soundtrack from Hall Oates to Deacon Blue or the effortless chemistry between its expertly chosen cast Egerton isn t exactly the spitting image of the real Eddie Edwards but he nevertheless gives a winning convincing performance thanks to studied mannerisms and natural likeability He keeps his performance just the right side of eccentric without stepping over into caricature and exhibits a charming awkwardness that makes sure we re with him every jump along the way There are supporting performances dotted around the film that add to its personality but Jackman is the real brilliant piece of support holding up many of the scenes He takes the potentially one note coach character which was imagined for the film and brings to it a nice mix of silliness and pathos While the film s primary purpose is to put a smile on your face while creating a swelling sense of you can do it it also shares some DNA with Ron Howard s Formula 1 biopic Rush in that it never skimps on the adrenaline rush of the sport itself Fletcher often utilises intense POV shots as Eddie speeds down and soars off those scarily high slopes some dodgy CGI during some of the crashing injury scenes aside it s very convincing and often exhilarating They don t come along that often but this is a bona fide crowd pleaser of a movie by a director who knows how to rouse his audience with genuinely affectionate storytelling and characters with whom you relish spending time The sports biopic recipe may be familiar but that hardly matters when the ingredients are as utterly endearing as this dexter fletcher eddie the eagle featured hugh jackman movie reviews taron egerton About the Author I m a freelance film reviewer and blogger with over 7 years of experience writing for various different websites In addition to my running editing and writing for Thoughts On Film I am also the freelance Film TV editor for Scotland based student magazine website Scotcampus I have a passion for all types of cinema and have a particular love for foreign language film especially South Korean and Japanese cinema Favourite films include The Big Lebowski Pulp Fiction and 2001 A Space Odyssey Twitter Facebook Related Posts Tweet Leave A Response Click here to cancel reply Name required Email required Website Comment Like Us On Facebook Follow Us On Twitter TOF UK on Twitter Follow
