Review: Les Misérables

Posted by Ali at 21:15 on 10 Jan 2013
Les Misérables
Let me tell you straight off, I'm not really a 'theatre person'. I'm exactly the sort of philistine who would probably walk out of a matinee showing of The Mousetrap at The Windmill if the concessions stand was closed. The last thing I saw in a theatre was Spider-Man: Turn Off The Dark. The time before that was The Woman In Black, but only because I knew it was considered exciting enough to be made into a film. The time before that was probably Garfield: Live!, although to my credit, I was about six at the time (even so, I still remember being terrified of Garfield's perennially glassy, non-blinking eyes and fixed, rictus grin. Maybe I caught him on a Monday).

Review: The Dark Knight Rises

The Dark Knight Rises
Me, I've always been a fan of Christopher Nolan more than I have Batman. Don't get me wrong, I was wowed by the reinvention of Batman Begins and the wallop of The Dark Knight, but I'll always choose the sleight-of-hand of The Prestige or the cerebral jolt of Inception given the choice. The Dark Knight Rises is a stunning piece of work, gigantic in scale with hugely ambitious themes, but Nolan's contribution to the Batman legacy – and indeed the superhero genre as a whole – is to make these films more about the men behind the masks than the heroes they portray: the guys who make the magic happen.

Is this the fastest anyone has ever said 'Rated PG-13' on film?

Short answer: yes. Full Dark Knight Rises TV spot here, Mr Fussy.

Sorry, this new TV spot for The Dark Knight Rises will have to do

It's only 30 seconds long, but we're all bloody knackered, okay?

EDIT: Never mind, I found a better one. Always working, me.

Review: One Day

Posted by Ali at 07:00 on 17 Aug 2011
One Day
Having read, loved and wept over One Day: The Book, I am not qualified to review One Day: The Movie. At least, not fairly. As is the way with most books adapted to film, viewers that have read the source material bring their own baggage to the screening, meaning it's almost impossible to be objective. David Nicholls' novel forged such a powerful connection to its characters, so even though the author wrote this adaptation himself, I couldn't help but feel the film was lent shades of colour by the book; colour that simply doesn't exist on the screen. I projected 435 pages of joy onto a film that probably didn't deserve it.

Finally an answer to the question: how sexy IS the new Catwoman?

Finally an answer to the question: how sexy IS the new Catwoman?
Because when an expert female burglar enters the blockbuster world of superheroes and comic-book villains, all anyone really cares about is how tight her leggings are.

Review: Rio

Rio
Those bloody Orange adverts have a knack of putting me right off the films they promote, making me judge them months before they're released. Just read my Gulliver's Travels review for proof (although it didn't help that that actually was complete arse). I was well-prepared to dislike Rio on the basis of that God-awful phone ad. Well, don't I feel like a fool...
