Rampart (Movie Review)

I picked up this film at a local movie store for about 2$ thinking it would be a mediocre cop movie (at that point not realizing what the title reffered to), but wow was I surprised when I watched it. This movie is rather a depressing movie about one man’s descent into a sad and…

Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom (Movie Review)

I have previously written about my adoration for Idris Elba’s wonderful acting chops, and this review is no different. This biographical movie about Nelson Mandela and his inspiring story manages to keep the audience entralled and interesting for the entire 141 minute runtime. While watching this movie I also realized how little I actually know…

Sunday in Depth #5: Fruit Ninja Movie

There are plans of making a movie based on the Fruit Ninja iPhone games. And I thought the Angry Birds Movie was a stretch. Oh yeah, let me get to the best part. The Fruit Ninja movie is supposed to be a live action film. When I first read about this I thought it could…

Magic in the Moonlight (Movie Review)

Woody Allen has made some really good movies throughout his career, but not every single film of his is a hit. Allen has also had his fair share of flops, one of those flops being Magic in the Moonlight. This film has a simple and sweet premise– cheesy, but sweet– but the film ends up…

Warcraft (Movie Review)

Here in Denmark, Warcraft had its premier today so obviously I flocked to the cinema to watch the movie. And the movie turned out to be exactly what I expected. The film looked and sounded wonderful (I’m already thinking Oscar nominations for visual effects, sound editing, and sound mixing), but the story was weak and…

Chef (Movie Review)

Going into this movie I expected a sweet, but cliche movie with a great cast, but a tired premise. Going out of the film, I was absolutely excited with the wonderful script, great acting, and the sweet and lovingly crafted emotional moments that made this movie such a great and noteworthy watch. Normally I am…

Sunday in Depth #4: Doctor Strange

  Superhero movies are taking over our cinemas and in some cases that’s fun and exciting, but will this all come to an end soon? Doctor Strange starring Benedict Cumberbatch is hitting theaters soon, but will this new entry into the MCU be the first film to get remarkably poor reviews (a rotten rating on…

Les Miserables (Movie Review)

Tom Hooper has not made a great film since The King’s Speech. So now I’ve said it. This adaptation of the Claude-Michel Schonberg and Alain Boublil adaptation of the Victor Hugo novel stars Hugh Jackman, Russell Crowe, and a handful of other movie stars. The stage adaptation of Les Miserables is one of the better…

Spotlight (Movie Review)

Spotlight, the 2016 Best Picture, tells the story of the brave journalists who researched the Catholic Church’s pedophilic priests. The film stars one of the greatest movie ensembles of all cinema history, with every character serving his/her purpose while remaining compelling and offering something unique to the movie. The film also has a fantastic screenplay…

A.C.O.D. (Movie Review)

The only true reason  I decided to watch this film was because of Adam Scott, sure there are other big names, but it was really Adam Scott I went for. A.C.O.D. , which stands for Adult Children of Divorce is a farcical comedy about Carter (Adam Scott) who tries to save his brothers wedding and…

Inside Out (Movie Review)

Upon watching the trailer for The Angry Birds Movie, I began noticing that the movie is fairly reminiscent of Inside Out visually, so I’ll review Inside Out. Inside Out is truly one of Pixar’s best films, it’s visually stunning, has a lovey story, great voice acting, and a brain-bogglingly clever premise. The film makes up for Cars…

Sunday in Depth #3: Videogame Movies

I just watched the trailer for the film Assassin’s Creed, so this Sunday in Depth will be about the entire premise of movies based on video games, and this seems like an apt time as The Angry Birds is hitting theatres in less than a week and Warcraft is premiering in June. No video game…
