My Soul To Takealt

107 min – Ghost | Horror | Adventure | PG13

Director: Wes Craven
Writers: Wes Craven
Stars: Max Thieriot, John Magaro and Denzel Whitaker
“I can’t say I’ve ever been a huge fan of horror movies. There are some horror films, like The Shining, that I do enjoy. However, I’ve never really been a fan of your basic teen slasher film that follows the formula so expertly skewered in the Scream franchise. The less I say about the whole torture porn subgenre, the better. But then there’s Wes Craven. I’ve always thought Craven was a unique vision in horror films. On the surface, his films play like your basic formulaic slasher film. But, especially in his earlier films, there is something going on beyond the surface. The first Nightmare on Elm Street played with notions of reality and dreamworld. The Scream movies, as I’ve mentioned, turned genre conventions on their ear. I’ve even given some praise to Vampire in Brooklyn. I always thought it was an interesting twist on the vampire tale. One film that both scared the crap out of me and amazed me was New Nightmare. Craven goes all meta, with original Elm Street scream queen Heather Langenkamp playing herself, being terrorized by a real-world incarnation of Freddy Krueger. His more recent films have been a little lackluster, but I was still looking forward to (well, warily looking forward to) My Soul To Take, his latest effort. It’s also the first film he’s made that he also wrote since New Nightmare. Unfortunately, My Soul to Take is fairly run-of-the-mill in terms of its story and surprisingly tame as a horror film. Like his other films, My Soul to Take seems like a by-the-numbers slasher film with some supernatural elements thrown in. Seven children are born on the day a local serial killer is killed…” Author: MovieManPat from Montreal, Quebec, Canada; Source: IMDB

 The Warrior’s Wayalt

alt

100 min – Action | Fantasy | Western | PG13

Director: Sngmoo Lee
Writers: Sngmoo Lee
Stars: Dong-gun Jang, Kate Bosworth and Geoffrey Rush
“The concept in itself sounds cool. Assassins from the east battle against cowboys from the west. With The Warrior’s Way, we get the best of both worlds with likable characters, especially the little baby. The setting of the movie is very stylized, and brings you a very romanticized western. The same can be said about the eastern setting. You can tell that the director loves Sergio Leone and Akira Kurosawa movies. The story of The Warrior’s Way is that of an assassin travels to the west because his clan is after him for not completing his mission, to kill a cute little baby girl (The baby’s really cute). The unnamed assassin stops his journey at Lode, a western town filled with circus folks. But we all know life isn’t that easy, as bandits and the ninja clan finds a way to make the life of the unnamed assassin hard. The action doesn’t start until later in the film, since it’s focused on the life of the assassin as he tries to find peace. Once the action starts, get ready for a good time, because our hero slices and dices cowboys and ninja alike. Once action sequence had the same style as 300, while other actions scenes felt like a live-action anime…” Author: gamergamer01 from United States; Source: IMDB

 The Chronicles Of Narnia: The Voyage Of The Dawn Treaderalt

alt

115 min – Adventure | Family | Fantasy | PG13

Director: Michael Apted
Writers: Christopher Markus (screenplay), Stephen McFeely (screenplay)
Stars: Ben Barnes, Skandar Keynes and Georgie Henley
“I have watched this film in 3d at a preview screening in London. First of all, I do not recommend anyone watching this in 3d. It is too dark and the action is just a motion blur. It’s dreadful. As for the film, there is much to enjoy with excellent visual effects, action set pieces (though ruined for me by the 3D) and a couple of stand out characters. But unfortunately there is also much to cringe at in some bouts of terrible dialogue. The characters of Reepicheep (the kick-ass warrior mouse) and Eustace, (the obnoxious brat cousin) were the most fun with the actor playing Eustace demonstrating excellent comic timing. The relationship between them was funny and touching. And they even brought much needed zest to the action. But alarmingly, Edmund and Lucy seem to have deteriorated as actors. Some of their emotions are too forced which is a pity. Not sure why, as I would expect them to improve with each film as did the young cast of the Harry Potter movies. Overall, the story has surprisingly been well adapted considering not a great deal actually happens in the book. But the pacing is good, even though a little episodic. There are much more Christian analogies once again which would please many and irritate others. But I rather like all of the analogies.” Author: theycallmemrglass from United Kingdom; Source: IMDB

Director: Adrian Teh
Writers: 
Stars: KK, Luke, Mindee Ong, Henry Thia, Benjamin Heng, Alaric Tay
“If you like movies with few plot twist and sufficient comedy to get through in one sitting, then give “Lelio PoPo” a try. It’s a light-hearted comedy that teaches you a thing or two about life. But even if you despise comedy, fret not as you won’t be disappointed by what’s being served in front of you.”Lelio PoPo” tells the story of two deejays, Jiang Man Da (KK) and Lu Ye Chang (Luke), who were once the most famous and popular radio deejays. However, known for their bad working attitude and etiquettes, eventually both are fired by their superior and shunned off by other major radio stations. In an attempt to get back their job, they disguise themselves as two grandmas and succeed in doing so.” Author: Cinema Online from Malaysia; Source: Cinema.com.my

Writers: Dan Fogelman (screenplay), Dan Fogelman
Stars: Mandy Moore, Zachary Levi and Donna Murphy
“I saw the finished movie at the screening before the wrap party. The movie works on every level. The Characters, the animation, the story, the score, the romance, and it’s all very cute as well (in a way Disney can apparently still pull off). The one thing that I didn’t get into was the songs (Except maybe the “Mother Knows Best” reprise). They were a little weak melodically and you won’t be singing them for weeks like I do “Part of Your World” every time I watch the “Little Mermaid.” However, the songs are good enough not to bring the movie down. There are so many touching scenes in this movie and you will love all of the characters by the end and have an amazing time in the process. It is definitely worth seeing in the theater, as this is probably the prettiest computer animated movie I’ve seen. I just can’t wait to see it in stereo!” Author: Jared M Johnson from Orlando, FL; Source:  IMDB

 The Social Networkalt

alt

121 min – Biography | Drama | History | PG13

Director: David Fincher
Writers: Aaron Sorkin (screenplay), Ben Mezrich (book)
Stars: Jesse Eisenberg, Andrew Garfield and Justin Timberlake
“The Social Network” was an incredibly engaging film that, while mainly revolving around the invention of Facebook (and all the problems that the creators encountered both before and after all was said and done), really focused in on ideas and feelings that can be (and are) universally felt through all people, the primary example being trying to fit in. Everyone wants to be accepted (I for one have never met a single human being that has wanted to be a loner), and some will do whatever it takes to get that sort of attention (which tends to lead into bad consequences). In a year where movies have received some of the lowest critical ratings (as well as box office earnings) in recent memory, “The Social Network” was, while haunting, truly refreshing and ultimately a triumph in all aspects, whether it be considering the acting, script, or directing. It was a fantastic movie that shouldn’t just be among the best of the year; it’s so much more important than that. It defines the entire social networking generation, and that is one hell of an accomplishment. Everyone can relate to it one way or another, and that makes it one of the must-see pictures of the year.” Author: Trevor Todd from United States; Source: IMDB

 Bruce Lee, My Brotheralt

130 min  –    Biography | Drama | PG13

Director: Wai Man Yip
Writer: Manfred Wong (screenplay)
Stars: Tony Leung Ka Fai, Christy Chung and Jin Auyeung

“Nearly 40 years since his untimely death, Bruce Lee remains not only the most influential father figure of martial arts but a true screen idol and culture icon. While millions of fans worldwide know Lee through his kung fu films, little is expounded on his early life in Hong Kong especially. So that’s what directors Raymond Yip and Manfred Wong set out to do – to piece together a biopic about the legend based on a memoir written by his younger brother, Robert Lee. “Bruce Lee, My Brother” starts off with a steady stream of conceptual shots around the house in which Lee and his family grew up. The movie then begins with Lee’s birth in San Francisco, where his father, Lee Hoi Chuen (Tony Leung Ka Fai) was touring at that time with the Cantonese Opera troupe. It’s interesting to see the way the story unfolds and how Lee got his English name, Bruce.” Author: Cinema Online from Malaysia; Source: Cinema.com.my

“Similar to the film Conviction released last month, which was about a woman who did whatever it took to get her brother released from prison, Crowe plays a man named John Brennan who will stop at nothing to get his wife out of prison. But in this film, he’s not out to do it through the legal system. He has lost all faith in that; he decides he’s going to break her out of prison himself. Of course, he believes his wife is innocent and doesn’t even question her on the matter. He continues to raise their son on his own yet, at the same time, plots out every single detail it would take to pull off such an arduous task.

 Harry Potter And The Deathly Hallows: Part 1alt

146 min  –  Action | Adventure | Fantasy | PG-13
 
Director: David Yates
Writers: Steve Kloves (screenplay), J.K. Rowling (novel)
Stars: Daniel Radcliffe, Emma Watson and Rupert Grint
“Up until now, I was convinced that from the 4th book onwards, Harry Potter-books had become too complex to make into film: Goblet of Fire was a sore disappointment. Order of the Phoenix left many Potterheads wanting more, even if it wasn’t a bad film per se (personally I thoroughly enjoyed it, even though I felt they left out too much). Half-blood Prince -while visually stunning- did not capture the brilliance of the book. With “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows”, I think the makers have finally succeeded in crafting a movie that was both fun to watch for casual viewers while also catering to the needs of the hard-core fans who know the books by heart. The decision to split the movie into two parts may be judged as a financial one by some, but I’m convinced it was the only possible way to make this work …” Author: sofie-17 from Belgium; Source: IMDB.
