Who’s That ? – April Edition

Richard (Leonardo DiCaprio) from The Beach! So Leo proved very tricky for you all and it was only after I gave the clue that I wouldn’t want to go on holiday with him that somebody twigged as to who it was. Please all join me in congratulating Mark Walker from Marked Movies for guessing this one correctly! And […]

The Wolf of Wall Street – Review (Spoiler Free)

A hilarious, timely and troubling exploration of addiction and the American Dream… It’s taken me well over a year to sit down and write about my thoughts on The Wolf of Wall Street. During that time I’ve seen the film about four or five times and have battled between whether I think it is excellent, fairly flawed, […]

DiCaprio Prepares to Play 24 Different Personalities in One Film…

Leonardo Dicaprio takes on the mammoth acting task that he has been trying to get hold of for two decades… This has been a long time coming for DiCaprio. The actor has had his eye on the lead role in the Billy Milligan biopic for around twenty years and he is finally going ahead with it. […]

The Beach – Review (Spoiler Free)

Bland, simplistic and all too often uninteresting – Danny Boyle can do much better. A far cry from how in touch Danny Boyle was with the zeitgeist with Trainspotting, here we have superficial comments on gaming, a poor soundtrack and vague attempts at depicting the unique attitude of  the backpacking.

There was always the worry that this element would overtake the film; that it […]

I’m sure that many of you know Cinematic, and those of you who don’t should really go and make your introductions. This is another great site, and I’m very grateful for the Django Unchained review that’s been contributed to this celebration of Tarantino’s 50th birthday. Please head on over and check out the site here […]

Inception – Review (Spoiler Free)

This is big, confidant film making. I hadn’t seen Inception in a while and whilst I remembered that it’s an excellently cast and highly stylish heist film, I had forgotten about its self-assurance. Take the first half of the film; tons of explanatory and world building information is reeled off here, and yet what should […]

The Top Ten Films for the Rest of 2012 (Entries 5-1)

5. Skyfall Being released during Bond’s 50th Anniversary only increases the heavy pressure on Skyfall to perform, not just well, but excellently. Despite its rather poor title, Skyfall does look rather promising; it can’t be a bad thing that Dame Judi Dench will be getting considerably more screen time, due to the plot being wrapped […]
