Astro Boy, Twilight: New Moon and Zombieland!

 

 


Zombieland Movie PosterZOMBIELAND (2009)
Director: Ruben Fleischer
Starring: Woody Harrelson, Jesse Eisenberg
Genre: Action, Comedy, Horror
Age Restriction: 18V

Zombieland takes a post-apocalyptic trip into the future in a United States overrun with zombies, where two survivors meet up, team up and take a "road trip" to remember. Horror comedy in the same vein as Shaun of the Dead pushes this instant cult classic into overdrive as Harrelson and Eisenberg rack up a stack of zombies and carve their way across the US of A. Solid comedy performances, some hilarious cameos and plenty of pop culture make this zombedy fresh, fun and full of dark comedy.


Astro Boy Movie PosterASTRO BOY (2009)
Director: David Bowers
Starring: Freddie Highmore, Nicolas Cage, Kristen Bell
Genre: Animation, Action, Family, Sci-Fi
Age Restriction: A

Astro Boy, a futuristic Pinocchio, takes to the skies in this action-packed family, sci-fi adventure. This animated icon re-emerges in a story, which deals with humanity, politics, sacrifice and family with threads from Iron Man, Monsters vs. Aliens and Robots. This entertaining, blast from the past boasts an a-list voice cast including: Nicolas Cage, Matt Lucas, Donald Sutherland and Freddie Highmore as Astro Boy. Good, clean, lightweight fun for the whole family.


Twilight: New Moon Movie PosterTWILIGHT: NEW MOON (2009)
Director: Chris Weitz
Starring: Kristen Stewart, Robert Pattinson, Taylor Lautner
Genre: Drama, Fantasy, Romance
Age Restriction: 10V

This lack-lustre sequel to Twilight forms the second of Stephenie Meyer's series of novel adaptations. While New Moon harnesses solid production values and a good-looking teenage cast, it's undone by a sluggish story, smouldering yet shallow "performances",  vague uninspired direction and generally makes a poor transition to the screen. Fans of the Twilight series will love it warts and all, strangers will find the film tedious and dare I say 'boring'... in the same league as The Golden Compass.

The Blind Side Movie Review: Love Conquers Fear

The Blind Side Movie Poster

Some Hollywood stories are too good to be true and some are too true to be good. This is why The Blind Side succeeds. It's a story, which mimics Hollywood's underdog story convention, while portraying a convincing, believable and much publicized rise to fame. Sandra Bullock's Oscar-winning performance may overshadow the film, but it all started with the amazing true story of Michael Oher.

Oher, conveniently referred to as "Big Mike", was a giant of a kid. His appearance and presence was both a nuisance and a blessing... getting him noticed by Wingate Christian School and predetermining his peer's opinions on the large black man. When Leigh Anne Tuohy decided to give the young man a place on the couch and a warm meal, she probably never anticipated that Oher would become part of the family.

Described at one point as "a fly in milk", Oher's story is about fitting in without falling out as he comes up against prejudice, educational and physical adversities. The Blind Side starts as a drama, as Oher finds his feet and embraces his adopted family. He's a gentle giant and it's only when his physical ability is fully realised that The Blind Side develops into a sports drama. Sandra Bullock has a firm grip on the Southern accent and really grows into her character. Tuohy is something of a control freak trophy wife at first, who eventually finds that "letting go" becomes all the more possible around Michael...continued.
