Upcoming Changes

Over the next few months there will be a few changes in the way I run this blog and I think it's only fair that you know about them.
Right now I am in my A2 year of College and as such I will spend most of my time doing work for this. As a result I will not be able to update this blog as often as I like. I'll still try and post reviews of any films I see and continue my regular series on the big film award shows and my end of the year lists.
Just keep in mind that there may well be only one or two updates to this blog in the next few months and I ask you to accept this.

How Not to Redesign a Character

Over the past few years there have been dozens of remakes floating around the film world, some good (True Grit and King Kong), some bad (A Nightmare on Elm Street, Halloween). Right now, there are some remakes I am optimistic about with the upcoming version of Carrie being the main one which gets the original film but wants to add its own elements and there are others which seem to not get the original film in any way, shape or form and the remake of Robocop is one of them, as shown by the first shot of Joel Kinnaman in the Robocop suit.

Berberian Sound Studio Review

Now this is an interesting film and I don't really know how to get across to you just what the film is like. It's strange, surreal, intense, engrossing and I'm not sure I really get it but I still thought it was a really good film and I do recommend you see it. Now I'm going to keep this review short as, honestly, the less you know the more you'll be immersed in the film.
