Monsters Inc - Review

Warning: contains possible mild spoilers

Is Monsters Inc a political commentary?

Pixar’s recent films WALL-E (2008) and Up (2009) have impressed critics and audiences with their intellectual and emotional substance which previous computer animations have apparently lacked. WALL-E offered a dystopic vision of Earth abandoned by obese, disconnected humans and presented a thoughtful, if obvious environmental message, while Up’s opening left many grown adults in tears.

Mystery Train - Review

Mystery Train is a Memphis-based anthology-comedy caper about American foreigners’ and outsiders stuck in melancholy, facing the sins and situations ones feeling can lead too.

The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance - Review

“When the legend becomes fact, print the legend."

Directed by John Ford, “The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance” may not be the most exciting western ever made, and certainly not the most grand in scale. It lacks the sheer massive spectacle of the often renowned epics of Sergio Leone. Even in the context of John Ford’s films, it cannot quite compare to the epic story of “The Searchers” or the technical mastery of “Stagecoach”.

The Man Who Would Be King - Review

Ah yes, British supremacy at its finest. To begin with, the film is chock full of beautiful cinematography, gorgeous locations and excellent acting. That aside, it is not a perfect film.

It begins with Christopher Plummer, playing Rudyard Kipling who wrote the short story this movie is based on, a quiet Free Mason working in his office located somewhere in India.
