  • 'Maze Runner: The Scorch Trials' Movie Review
    infected the world doesn t seem to affect them The Gladers make a daring escape from Janson s facility only to find themselves in a barren wasteland known as The Scorch Here they are at risk from Cranks the flesh eating zombie like creatures infected by the Flare as well as WCKD itself While the first adaptation stayed fairly faithful to its source material readers of the second book might notice early on that the film version of The Scorch Trials made some big changes Gone is the telepathic link between Thomas and Teresa Kaya Scodelario the only female Glader Also gone is the use of the Scorch as a testing ground for the immune teenagers Instead they are taken to a lab and strung up like sides of beef to have their blood and immune systems tested Most notably when they head out into the Scorch it is only as a means of escape and to find the Right Arm not to find out why they are immune to the Flare while so many others are not While not all changes from the book to the film are prominent this change works against the story as it removes the explanation as for why Thomas and his companions are in the area in the first place And with a cliffhanger ending it almost makes it seem like The Scorch Trials is just an action packed means to connect the first film with the planned third film in the trilogy Each post apocalyptic story has its own version of how the world ends and each one seeks to show a unique version of how a new world order will or has begun The Maze Runner series focuses less on global war and nuclear weapons wiping out most of humanity and instead uses unprecedented solar flares and a highly infectious disease that turns humans into monsters While the devastation in the series has only been a what if scenario in recent years we can draw parallels to our own erosion of the ozone layer mainly through our continued dependency on traditional energy providers versus renewable sources Whether the cause of the apocalypse be war or human created destruction it is obvious that whatever happened has left the world a barren desolate place where only monsters can thrive With the real world suffering from climate change caused by reliance on unsustainable fuels it isn t too far of a stretch to believe reality could soon mimic the world of The Scorch Trials and other dystopian films While that fate is hopefully a long time coming you won t have the wait too long to find out what happens to Thomas and gang The Death Cure the third and final film in the trilogy featuring returning director Wes Ball is set for a February 17 2017 release date aidan gillen alan tudyk barry pepper dylan o brien featured giancarlo esposito jacob lofland kaya scodelario ki hong lee lili taylor maze runner the scorch trials

  • 'Everest' Movie Review
    task that few humans will ever experience Although the backstories of the key characters are lifted straight from the real life event pregnant wives back home being motivated to inspire school kids etc its content to rest on the surface and curiously unwilling to plunge its hands into the depths of the snow so to speak muster up real truth This issue is somewhat papered over by the fact that it has one hell of a cast to elevate the shortcomings in the script Though people like Gyllenhaal and Robin Wright are underserved by limited roles that feel squashed under the weight of the sheer amount of other characters the likes of Clarke Brolin and particularly the always excellent John Hawkes bring their A game and make us feel for them in spite of the lacking characterization Others like Keira Knightley as Clarke s very worried and very pregnant wife back home Sam Worthington Emily Watson and Michael Kelly are all effective in their key supporting roles even if the film feels somewhat like a distracting pick n mix of Hollywood character actors Although action is not exactly at the top of its list of priorities the concept of spectacle most definitely is Director Baltasar Kormákur of such eclectic fare as 101 Reykjavik 2 Guns and Contraband revels in the chance to show of the behemoth setting of the title swirling and diving around it with aerial shots that should give anyone with even a touch of vertigo the heebie jeebies He also does a very good job of getting across the harsh conditions the climbers have to endure whether it s the freezing temperatures promising almost certain frostbite or the inescapable winds threatening to literally push them over the edge If nothing else the film is a giant three dimensional warning that climbing Everest is not to be taken lightly Despite it never truly getting under the skin of its multitude of characters and ultimately falling short of the dizzying heights that it was aiming for there s something undeniably compelling about Everest It builds its tension in a stagey way that makes sense for the story the climbers literally tackling their mission in carefully calculated checkpoints and you do really get the best sense possible of what it s like to be on that mountain and facing such insurmountable odds emily watson everest featured jake gyllenhaal jason clarke john hawkes josh brolin keira knightley michael kelly movie reviews new releases robin wright sam worthington 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

  • 'Legend' Movie Review
    frankly Hardy is phenomenal here playing Reggie and Ronnie as two living breathing distinct individuals it never once feeling like it s the same person just with a different haircut or manner of speaking Ronnie is naturally the most outlandish unhinged of the two personas and is thus the most outright fun to watch his angry reaction to a rival gang not bringing any guns to a shootout is a hilarious film highlight but his more restrained controlled Reggie is no less fascinating He lays on a stunning double performance helped by largely seemless CGI and use of body doubles that s as fascinating as it is unsettling and one that is sure to win him a multitude of deserved plaudits when the times come around It once again proves why he s one of the best actors working today The idea of exploring this already well known story through the prism of a key supporting figure in their life is an interesting one but it ultimately weighs the film down rather than elevates it to a clear objective stand point for telling the story This is mainly due to an obtrusive voice over that s not so much the fault of Browning who functions as the only truly likeable character in a film populated by otherwise purposefully unpleasant thugs but rather its overly explanatory po faced nature The story just didn t need it made all more evident by how it comes into play by the end This approach also means that it skims over certain crucial aspects of the twins story namely the overbearing presence of their mother who is reduced to backseat matriarch who serves tea and cake in a couple of scenes disappointing for both those who know the real story and fans of the 1990 Kemp version in which she was so pivotal The film is called Legend and there s a consistent almost admirable commitment to making this particular telling of the story fit for the title It seems less interested in getting under the surface of these men and more in holding them up as charismatic criminals who took their surroundings by storm and made sure no one ever forgot their name It s often too silly at times even farcical to truly be taken seriously and is wrapped in a familiar cloak of cinematic gangsterisms It s a superficial surface level crime saga for sure but enjoyable so less Gangster No 1 and more Lock Stock and Two Smoking Barrels Hardy s towering twin performance is the main reason to see it but for those that bask in the films of Martin Scorsese and those that followed his lead it s got personality panache and slick charm to spare brian helgeland emily browning featured legend movie reviews new releases paul bettany tom hardy 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

  • 'Irrational Man' Movie Review
    few Here is playing around with the idea of morality and what that means in the face of murder Can it ever be justified under the right circumstances And what happens when one person sees the logic in it while the other understandably just can t get on board Allen s mix of light hearted quirkiness verging on the whimsical with these deathly serious themes makes for a fascinatingly disconcerting film that sits on the weightier side of his oeuvre As is almost always the case even with Allen s lesser works the performances are spot on Phoenix is fittingly awkward yet compelling as the dejected philosophy professor trying to find meaning in a world where he himself preaches to his students and himself meaninglessness There s an inward subtlety to the character that might not have been there if given to a less astute actor Then there s Emma Stone if Magic in the Moonlight saw Allen admiring her from afar this is him infatuated with her Her face seems to fill the entire screen whenever she s on it exuding a charm cuteness and just the right amount of quirky oddness that gives a potentially trite character much more meaning and truth As it progresses and it becomes clearer and clearer the road that the film is ultimately choosing to travel down it becomes a case where you have to just throw your hands up in the air and go with it For those unconvinced by the admittedly jarring mix of amiable quirkiness and obvious darkness the destination will be too much to bear But if you re on board with what Allen is trying to do then there s something pleasingly unsettling about the film in spite of or perhaps because of the awkward bumps along the road It may be done in a more carefree manner akin to some his more throwaway efforts but there s at least a feeling that not only does Allen have something genuine to say this time around but he actually believes it emma stone featured irrational man joaquin phoenix movie reviews new releases parker posey woody allen 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
