June in Review

An overview of the film viewings in the first month of my summer.

Alone in the Dark Review

As a horror film, it fails. As a fantasy film, it stumbles. As a film altogether, it does not even come close to being coherent or enjoyable.

The Kid re-review

This is my second review after almost a year since I saw Chaplin's touchingly crafted masterpiece. A must-see for film fans.

Its been a while...and I have moved!

Preview to the next film underway! July 6!

On July 6 around 6pm  (London +0 GMT) I will be uploading the next film created by my friends and I in our youtube group: IndieHouseFilms It is a mockumentary of  a group of filmmakers trying to make a documentary about the Tollymore Forest somewhere in Northern Ireland. I created the film to have a bit of fun with the genre and to poke fun at conventions, movie mistakes and even young people at some parts. The film is quite silly, but I hope you enjoy it. Watch the preview below and enjoy :)

June in Review


The first true month of my summer break began on the first day of June, and instantly I sat down and watched many films. In the first week, I managed to watch 13 films, and began to slow down after that, but I tallied up quite a few great films this month.  I re-watched many films this time, and more than I have any month this year.  I also explored the films of Wes Anderson a little, and I can see what the fuss has been about when it comes to his films. Seeing Moonrise Kingdom was released recently, I thought I would explore his earlier films, and I think they are great! He is a talented director who definitely has a very special way of telling his stories.

100 Film Facts About Me Part 1


I have saw on a few blogs compiled lists of 100 facts about them. Well, here is part 1 of 100 facts film related about me. I would like to thank Cinematic Corner and Cinematic Paradox for their lists as it is what inspired this post. (Check out their great blogs also). Let's get started. 


1)    Although not my favourite film of all-time, if I were to choose a film to watch for the rest of my life it would be Singin in the Rain.

The Kid (1921) -Second Review-


Directed & Written by Charles Chaplin
Starring: Charles Chaplin, Jackie Coogan, Edna Purviance
Genre: Comedy, Drama
USA
B & W, 60 Minutes

Verdict: Emotionally sincere, and full of whimsical comedy: The Kid still holds up today as a touchingly  beautiful work of silent cinema.

2012 Goal Checklist -Half way-

Remember at new years 2012 I set myself targets as a film buff for my film life and blog? Well, now that we are now in the middle of the year, I thought I would check up how I am doing so far on achieving these targets. Read the post here. Now let us take a look as to how I have done so far.

Alone in the Dark (2005)

Directed by: Uwe Boll
Starring: Christian Slater, Tara Reid, Stephen Dorff
Genre: Horror, Fantasy
USA
96 Minutes


Verdict: Just plain boring and not even fun to watch to make fun of for being so bad: that is what Alone in the Dark is like. It is neither scary nor entertaining, and plays out as a messy and inept film.
