Making movies more fun for all the family CineClub - Movie Reiews and personal insights


Making movies more fun for all the family

Every year several movies make their way to the box office sweeping huge revenues from their success but only few to sweep the hearts. Only a couple of quality movies teach the world about leaving self and selfishness back so that we could love people and do the best for everyone without expecting anything in return.

Movie Reiews and personal insights

Based on the best selling novel of the same name, The Book Thief tells the story of Liesel, an orphaned girl in 1940s Germany. She is adopted by a German couple, a friendly old man (Geoffory Rush) and a cold stern woman (Emily Watson), and struggles to come to grip with her new home and

The Long Walk To Freedom: How Do We Learn About A Life Through Film?
Nelson Mandela. The name alone is full of history, emotions and stature. The task, therefore, of Justin Chadwick to even name a movie Mandela must have been daunting. To then try and tell the whole life story, from a young man to the elder statesman we knew, and to tell it well was a huge […]

The Lego Movie: Assembled With Care
Lego have released a movie… For a moment think what feelings that phrase conjures up in your mind. This isn’t the first movie to be released by a toy manufacturer, and it definitely will not be the last. Such abominations as Battleship, Transformers and GI Joe were created to sell more toys. So upon hearing […]

Recently my wife and I went to see the movie by Alfonso Cuarón Gravity. Heeding the advice of critics we sought out the biggest screen possible, and opted for the 3D performance. This is not something I have done willingly in a long time. The fad of 3D is lost on me due to the […]

Lone Survivor
Lone Survivor tells the story of a Navy Seal team, stationed in Afghanistan during 2005. Taking the accounts of Marcus Luttrell, as well as research in military documentation and reports, director Peter Berg tells the story of a 3 day mission which you are sure to guess from the title, didn’t go according to plan. […]

12 Years A Slave
12 Years a Slave tells the true story of Solomon Northup, a black and free man living in New York in 1841. He is kidnapped and as the title suggests spends 12 years as a slave in the cotton fields of southern America. Being passed from slave owner to slave owner, plantation to plantation, we […]

Review of 2013: The D.A.F.As
THE D.A.F.As (Dave’s Annual Film Awards)!!!! Welcome to the first annual DAFAs (Daves annual film awards). A short look at my 2013 in terms of movies seen which were released in the UK during 2013. I am aware movies like Lincoln were part of last years awards season, but i am counting this by Jan […]

Captain Phillips. A ‘true story’ master class
The telling of a ‘true story’ of real events always has the problem that many people know the outcome. We all knew the Titanic sank, Ghandi was shot and that Julian Asange managed to leak all of his documents (Fifth estate). These are not “spoilers” but simple facts of history, which are woven into our […]

Thor: The Dark World
One wonders if five years ago the movie going world could have believed how Marvel have not only dominated, but perhaps led the big blockbuster race for a steady number of years. Starting with Iron Man, featuring Downy Jr. (a man known for small independent movies) Marvel kicked us off. Their ‘real life’ edge coupled […]

One Flew Over The Cuckoo’s Nest (1975)
An interesting piece of trivia – Only three movies have ever won the big 4 oscars – best picture, actor, actress and director. It happened one night, with Clark Gable (1935), The Silence of the Lambs (1991) and our topic for discussion – One Flew Over The Cuckoo’s Nest (1975). One Flew tells the story […]
