Attack the Block Review

When I first heard about this film, I wasn't expecting much, that was until I saw the trailer and found that Nick Frost was staring in it and it was being produced by Nira Park and Edgar Wright, the duo behind Spaced, Shaun of the Dead and Hot Fuzz. Those people being involved peaked my curiosity. My thoughts on the film, incredible. You need to see Attack the Block as soon as possible, there are no other films like it that will be released for the rest of the year.

My Thoughts on the MTV Award Nominations

Normally I have been firmly against the MTV awards, aside from the acceptance speeches the awards in general are terrible, although not as bad as the National Movie Awards. First things first, I still hate the fact that Twilight is still getting award consideration from teens. Those films are terrible and the sooner the series ends, the better. That said, this year, aside from the Twilight nominations, the choices for the MTV awards are actually not that bad. I will be looking at some of the key categories and seeing how good the nominees are.

My Thoughts on the Tintin Trailer

This year will see the ultimate fantasy for the British film geek. A film involving the top talent of Britain in terms of acting and writing. That film is The Adventures of Tintin: Secret of the Unicorn and a trailer has just been released, here are my thoughts.
First of all the animation is gorgeous, some of the shots in this film rival live action scenes, especially those in the desert, in terms of sheer beauty. The character animation looks really believable through the motion capture and it currently looks as if Steven Spielberg and Peter Jackson have avoided the Uncanny Valley. It looks like Jamie Bell will be great as Tintin giving in a great voice for the role and the animation for Snowy is brilliant as well. I really want to see footage of Simon Pegg, Nick Frost and Andy Serkis as the T(h)ompsons and Captain Haddock receptively. So far it looks like the script and set-pieces are great courtesy of screenwriters Steven Moffat (head writer for Doctor Who), Edgar Wright (writer/director of Shaun of the Dead, Hot Fuzz and Scott Pilgrim) and Joe Cornish (writer/director of Attack the Block, which you need to see in the cinema whilst it's still on). All in all, I cannot wait for this film to come out, get my seat ready on 26th October (UK release)

I have just heard that a plague upon humanity has just got a poster, a film made by 2 of the biggest hacks in film history, a film with absolutely no positive aspect to it, a film which looks like torture. Those of a nervous disposition do not click on the jump, if you do you will never recover.

Trailers Galore

It's been a while since I've had a look at some film trailers so I'll have a look at 5 today:
First of all Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2.

This is a great trailer filled with a lot of action, brilliant music a lot of sights from the book and some new things that weren't in the book (Harry forcing himself and Voldemort of the ruins of Hogwarts being key) and it doesn't reveal any major spoilers for those who haven't read Deathly Hallows yet. All in all I'm really looking forward to this film.

Thor Review

First things first, stay through the credits. Trust me, there is a very important plot point for both the ending of this film and next years The Avengers (which is the only superhero film I'm looking forward to more than The Dark Knight Rises coming out next year). That said lets get into my spoiler-free review of Thor.
