More to this story than what meets the eye

Reviewed by on

If one looks carefully at the movie- the absolutely vivid colors and the improbability of the story logic - the various animals on the boat, the story-line becomes irrational. You need to re-interpret to story as that our hero has also drowned on and what he is experiencing is his subconscious mind in the next dimension...

The term "Pi" is also a valuable hint- to the irrationality of the story..in the material world.

Gary Oldman is amazing!

Reviewed by on

Having grown up and spent many years watching many "war movies" based on WW2 with lots of action elements in them - this was actually surprisingly interesting and completely different. Seen from the point of view of the leaders back home and not sitting on the front lines - Winston Churchill (played by Oscar Winner Gary Oldman) is not the first choice of the British parliament, nor even the king, when they are on the brink of war with Germany. As fate would have it, he is eventually chosen to lead his nation against the Nazi threat, and we the viewer get to see just how much he had to put up with. An action romp this is not, but a lot of drama and political intrigue will keep you glued to your screen until that final closing speech "We shall fight on the beaches".

If you are a fan of the Alien Movies then this is for you, if however you are a true fan you would notice the omission of "Prometheus" (my fav)which is also considered part of the Alien movie franchise.
Either way this is a nice addition to have in your collection.

The real Captain Marvel

Reviewed by on

The recent DC movies have been pretty good, with Aquaman and Wonder Woman bringing the excellent characters from the DC stable to the big screen. I was skeptical at first about Shazam, but it's a fantastic superhero comedy - that oozes charm. I grew up reading the original Captain Marvel (now Shazam) comics, and while he always came third to Batman and Superman, I have to admit that this movie has made me an even greater fan.

Mangalicious!

Reviewed by on

One of the best anime/manga to live-action adaptions in years, and while the critics hated it for some reason, I can honestly say that this move is astounding. The casting was perfect, and the CGI was incredible. It's definitely going into my movie collection and I'm going to re-watch it with glee for years to come.

A huge international box office success for South Africa

Reviewed by on

Filmed in and around the tourist resort of Sun City, this was a partly foreign funded sequel of sorts to the earlier Karate Olympia a.k.a. Kill & Kill Again with much the same cast playing essentially the same characters, if one forgets that James Ryan’s character in the first film was called ‘Steve Hunt’ and then called ‘Steve Chase’ in this one. Broad comedy and very well executed stunts and fight arranging are the order of the day and the one with the best lines is the late, pioneering South African actor Ken Gampu as the unfortunately named Gorilla, an ex-wrestler who cannot stand officious bosses, too tight shirts and engaged aircraft toilets. Another international box office success for South Africa which grossed enough money to find itself almost at the top of Variety’s box – office champions for 1981.

This wasn't a good experience

Reviewed by on

For all the things this film got wrong, it still had some entertainment value. Unfortunately, if you've seen any other Marvel movie, there is no doubt that this one is the weakest of the lot. From poor writing to uninspired action and countless plot holes, the film was a let down. My biggest issue was character motivations and developments... There were none. It was just a big shiny waste of time. Great special effects don't make a good movie. Also worth noting, it is the last time we will see a Stan Lee cameo... And I loved his cameo in this one. It was the one thing that didn't have me rolling my eyes into the back of my head. As a collector of the marvel films, I'll be buying it for the cameo alone. No other reason to watch it again.

Reviewed by on

David Jason, known to many for Only Fools & Horses, but even better in the Touch of Frost series, is an excellent British actor, and perfect in the prequel to Dickens : David Copperfield, about the man who is always optimistic, always in debt, yet somehow always manages to survive. Gentle humour, and never dull. Pity this show wasn't extended to a second series, as one can see many promising plot lines starting here

Naomi Watts tried hard, but

Reviewed by on

What a terrible film: Diana is presented as a lovesick, neurotic, needy, whiny attention seeker whose adulterous husband only wanted to use her as a breeding oven for an heir and a spare. Having said that, the real William and Harry were and are more than an heir and spare who carry on their Mom's legacy but this film: eish.

Even Diana's clothes look like "fong-kong" rip-offs: the only good part of this film is where the world wakes up to realize that Princess Diana has been murdered and the people's reaction to this tragic event and their anger with the absolute silence from the Queen and the rest of the Firm.

The other good part of this is the end of the film where someone mercifully switches off the projector.

Almost put me off watching films forever

Reviewed by on

Yes, I was six (1973) but even then I knew how insanely bad this thing was. It was only thanks to my parents taking me to see Murder On The Orient Express a year later which got me bitten by the film bug. If Lost Horizon was the only film I ever saw, I would never love films as much as I do and always have.

Final thought: avoid and please don't pay R432 for such a bad movie: rather buy a good meal and go see a good movie.

I remember being so angry back in 1997

Reviewed by on

Several things: The Queen keeping silent for so long and only speaking under immense pressure - one of the newspapers then had a headline saying YOUR PEOPLE ARE SUFFERING! SPEAK TO US, MA'AM and the Afrikaans language newspaper Beeld [image] having only one word in its' headliine: STOMGESLAAN [dumbstruck].

Those were terrible days indeed: the world lost a treasure and even people who didn't like her were sad she had passed.

Rest in power, my Princess.

Fantastic Movie

Reviewed by on

One of the best movies of all time. Being the first in the prequel trilogy for Planet of the Apes, this movie set such a high standard for the future movies which was raised even higher by its sequels. A definite must buy along with Dawn & War.
