The Golden Compass

by zac / Published: December 9, 2007 at 8:49 pm   /   Local, Movie Reviews

Chris Weitz first foray into the fantasy realm is one that is inspiring, and is almost something great, but I can’t help like feeling there was so much more to know. The film looks fantastic, with top notch CGI throughout, doing an exceptional job with the dæmon’s (pronounced demons), the animal manifestation of ones soul […]

Sidney Lumet’s new film is an interesting take on the crime drama, by taking a small simple crime and examining the consequences of what can happen if everything went wrong. The movie is a very intimate look into the lives of everyone involved and can be even more intimate than most crime films due to […]

I’m Not There

The new film by Todd Haynes is as about as unique and as ambitious as one can get. Based off the songs, stories and life of Bob Dylan, six different actors play different parts of Dylan’s psyche, and they are all inter cut and loosely assembled to form somewhat of a narrative that is kind […]

Let’s get one thing out of the way, if you see this, see it in IMAX 3-D. The 3-D is phenomenal and a must see for anyone that enjoys film or wants to see the future of the medium. The 3-D gives the movie a bit more life than it might normally have had, but […]

Talk about breaking a stereotype. Who would have thought that such a great film like Juno was written by an ex-advertiser/stripper/phone sex operator named Diablo Cody. But that is in fact what she has done and paired with one of the more capable young directors around, Jason Reitman, Juno might end up being the funniest […]
