2013: The Year in Film

In a year of great belly laughs, 2013 didn’t get much funnier than Diana. Firstly, what was Naomi Watts thinking? And secondly, what was Naomi Watts thinking? Movie 43 was a success in as much as it was the myriad filmmakers’ intent to embarrass a bevy of Hollywood actors (including Naomi Watts!)…

The Ten Best Films I Saw In 2011

There were some great films released in 2011. Lars VonTrier, despite his Hitler comments at Cannes, produced another great work in Melancholia. Woody Allen served up his best film in years with Midnight In Paris. Kevin Smith tried something different and almost succeeded with his off-beat horror film Red State. Margin Call and The Ides Of March proved that decent drama is not yet dead. The much-maligned Apollo 18 breathed new life into the slowly fading mockumentary sub-genre, much like last years’ The Troll Hunter…

RECESSION-PROOF MOVIES: Bargain Bin Alternatives To Classic Films

If you were like so many others who sat through Forrest Gump thinking, “What this film really needs is some scantily-clad bikini babes with big norgs.” then Buford’s Beach Bunnies is the film for you. Featuring the acting prowess of Jim Hanks (Tom’s less-talented younger brother) this raunchy 1993 comedy-romp tells the story of a moron named Jeeter, a young man terrified of sex, whose popularity with females soars when his pushy father offers $100,000 to the first girl to deflower him. It’s the sort of sophisticated premise missing in movies these days…

Zodiac (2007) • Sunshine (2007) • Michael Clayton (2007)

Based on Graysmith’s book, David Finchers’ long and at times difficult film is nonetheless a visually beautiful piece of work. Detailing (and I mean detailing) the exhaustive investigation and the effect on those involved, Zodiac weaves a serpentine story with an astounding nuance. The cast, production design and direction are all first class, with Fincher providing perhaps his most stylistically impressive film to date…

Syriana (2005) • Music & Lyrics (2007) • Dawn Of The Dead (2004)

In the Middle East, two unemployed youths are drawn into a circle of Muslim extremists, while a energy analyst is sent to apply for a contract with Arab royalty and is met with tragedy. In the United States, a CIA operative becomes obsessed with finding a missile sold in an arms deal, and a morally corrupted attorney investigates the merger of two massive oil corporations…

Burn After Reading (2008) • Cloverfield (2008) • The Strangers (2008)

For the last twenty-five years, the Coen Brothers have created some of the most unique films in American cinema history. From Blood Simple to No Country For Old Men, the Coens have consistently displayed highly individual techniques and superior writing. Burn After Reading is another addition to their long line of quality work with crazy performances from all involved…

Hellboy 2 (2008) • There Will Be Blood (2007) • Leatherheads (2008)

The red ape is back, wisecracking his way through another adventure and saving mankind from the evil elements of the netherworld in the process. Big, brash, colourful and highly entertaining with visuals that put the original and Del Toro’s Pan’s Labyrinth to shame…
