I went into 'The Hobbit' with very low expectations, and that was for many reasons. One, I just wasn't as excited about the whole thing as I was with the LOTR films. Second, there had been a lot of bad buzz around the films for so many reasons, especially with the 48FPS issue.
'Lincoln' can be summed up in one word, succinct. Well, except that it's not exactly brief. But what it does do is sums up everything clearly what non Americans know, or think we know, of Lincoln as a person and what he did for the history books.
What can I say, Ang Lee, or Al to his peps back in the hood, sure knows how to make a film look beautiful, and I wouldn't be surprised to see 'Life Of Pi' walk away with best Cinematography at the Oscars next year.
The last 'Twilight' film was horrible, just horrible, in that awesome kind of way. Yeah, doesn't make sense to me either. Bad acting, bad directing, bad visual effects, and bad writing, which felt like a 13 year old girl had written it, just made for a laughable movie, which I did often. But!
I hate missing my press screenings for films, and this movie was one of them, but I made sure I kept an eye out for its general release, and despite having to actually pay to see it this time, I was looking forward to seeing it.
The Korean Cinerama Trust, in association with The Embassy of the Republic Korea, is hosting the 2012 Korean Film Festival, which will be held during 12-17 December in Wellington and Auckland.
When I first saw 'Abraham Lincoln Vampire Hunter' at its press screening earlier in the year, I went in thinking I'd see a fun film along the lines of 'Wanted', which is from the same director. I came out second guessing my love of that film, as this follow up film was so damn average!
Statement from the New Zealand Film Commission
Congratulations to the line-up of fantastic New Zealand screen projects heading to Sundance.
Only 1% of New Zealanders expect the Hobbit film to be a box office flop, according to a UMR Research poll released today.
'Skyfall', though not my favourite Bond film, as that still goes to the near perfect 'Casino Royale' from 1967...just kidding, I mean the 2006 version. But, what makes 'Skyfall' stand out from any other Bond film I've seen is that it's not like any other Bond film before it.
