P.S, I Love You »

It won’t be for everyone, but everyone who sees it will get something out of it. Like 2005’s ''In Her Shoes'', it’s a chick flick that almost perfectly encapsulates so many things about life and all its idiosyncracies. Hilary Swank, Gerard Butler, Lisa Kudrow, Gina Gershon, Harry Connick, Jr, Jeffrey Dean Morgan Sometimes the simplest [...]

Cinematically speaking, I have completely fallen for a certain pregnant 16-year-old girl with a smart mouth and an even smarter Read more…

Blade Runner: The Final Cut (DVD) »

It’s a top film, and the Final Cut is the best version yet. We don’t like to judge here at Moviehole, but if you don’t like it, then there’s probably something wrong for you. Harrison Ford, Rutger Hauer, Sean Young, Edward James Olmos, M. Emmet Walsh, Daryl Hannah It’s reassuring that Ridley Scott hasn’t gone [...]

Wedding Daze (DVD) »

Someone’s obviously caught “American Pie” a few years too late and decided both the smutty storyline and its fresh-faced star could easily be transferred into their script – which they consider to be equally amusing; crude and original. And if it were 1999, “Daze” might have even got the theatrical release its producers no doubt [...]

An Old Mistress »

In a strange way, a Mills & Boon-inspired bodice ripper set in 18th century France is the perfect vehicle for filmmaker Catherine Breillat Asia Argento, Fu’ad Ait Aattou, Michael Lonsdale In a strange way, a Mills & Boon-inspired bodice ripper set in 18th century France is the perfect vehicle for filmmaker Catherine Breillat. Even more [...]

Atonement »

McAvoy and Wright’s ''Pride & Prejudice'' star Knightley are both superb Keira Knightley, James McAvoy, Saiorse Ronan, Romola Garai "Atonement'' is so prestigious and pedigreed you almost feel like you should don your Sunday best to see it. But the crisp formality of its approach and the assembly of top-flight British talent on both sides [...]

Death Sentence (DVD) »

To say “Death Sentence” is filmmaker James Wan’s best film doesn’t mean a hell of a lot. Sure, his “Saw” was well-done (and lets admit it, it made him and partner Leigh Whannell a mint), but what worked about it was its imaginative storytelling not the direction, which, to say the least, was pretty much [...]

Charlie Wilson’s War »

The only War Charlie Wilson’s likely to have to sign up for is one that pits him against whatever aliens, superheroes or talking chipmunks want to share his stage come release day. Tom Hanks, Julia Roberts, Philip Seymour Hoffman, Amy Adams, Ned Beatty, Om Puri, Emily Blunt, Shiri Appleby The only War Charlie Wilson’s likely [...]

I am Legend »

Your stereotypical Will Smith sci-fi flick. It could have been so much more, unfortunately it plays out as more of a missed opportunity. Will Smith "There was no sound but that of his shoes and the now senseless singing of birds. Once I thought they sang because everything was right with the world, Robert Neville [...]

Arctic Tale (DVD) »

If you loved ''March of the Penguins'' you may like ''Arctic Tale.'' Your kids may like it a lot. Narred by Queen Latifah If you loved ''March of the Penguins'' you may like ''Arctic Tale.'' Your kids may like it a lot. However, this chilling story (in temperature only) differs not only by being polar [...]

Halloween : Unrated (2-Disc DVD) »

Its quite simply a remake that’s a cut above the rest. Just a pity it got lazy in the third act. Malcolm McDowell, Scout-Taylor Compton, Sheri Moon Zombie, Tyler Mane, Daeg Faerch, Danielle Harris, Dee Wallace, Brad Dourif, Danny Trejo None of us wanted it - not when the original holds up so darn well [...]

The Golden Compass »

The film serves as a paint-by-numbers approach to the fantasy genre and will certainly please little ones who are amazed by talking animals and magical mischief. Nicole Kidman, Daniel Craig, Dakota Blue Richards, Ben Walker, Freddie Highmore, Ian McKellan The latest British fantasy novel to become a box office money magnet is ''The Golden Compass'', [...]

Hitman »

You’ve seen a lot worse from the world of games, but there’ll undoubtedly be better. Timothy Olyphant, Olga Kurylenko, Dougray Scott While video games enjoy more respect through an increase in graphics power, more thought into the storylines employed, more design into the worlds created and a fully formed experience delivered, the exact opposite is [...]

Titanic : 10th Anniversary Edition (DVD) »

Ah, finally we can see those deleted scenes of Arnold Schwarzenegger as the heroic off-duty copper who helps save a thousand or passengers before using his muscle to flip the barge back to its safe side. Or not. Leonardo DiCaprio, Kate Winslet, Billy Zane, Kathy Bates, Frances Fisher, Gloria Stuart, Bill Paxton, Bernard Hill, David [...]

Dirt – The Complete First Season (DVD) »

Courteney Cox’s new series isn’t exactly, er, Dirt but it’s not exactly “Friends” either. Courteney Cox, Ian Hart, Will McComack, Carly Pope, Jeffrey Nordling, Rick Fox Courteney Cox’s new series isn’t exactly, er, Dirt but it’s not exactly “Friends” either. Granted, it’s going to be tough for any of the cast of that hit sitcom [...]

American Pie Presents : Beta House (DVD) »

Thankfully, it’s not “Naked Mile 2”, and this one’s actually enjoyable in parts, but still…someone needs to go back and watch the original film again, to see what made it fun in the first place, before they get to work on sequel number six. John White, Steve Talley, Meghan Heffern, Jake Siegel, Christopher McDonald, Eugene [...]

Grace is Gone »

As he was in the recent ''1408'', John Cusack is the best thing about ''Grace is Gone''. John Cusack, Shelan O’Keefe, Gracie Bednarczyk Stanley Philips (John Cusack) is not pleased with his life. Working a dead-end sales job in a department store, he’s also trying to bring up his two daughters without the help of [...]

Sweeney Todd »

This is no doubt Burton's best film in a decade and one of the best movies of the year. Johnny Depp, Helena Bonham Carter, Sacha Baron Cohen, Alan Rickman, Timothy Spall Based on the 19th century legend of ''Sweeney Todd'' and the hit Broadway musical with music and lyrics by Stephen Sondheim, ''Sweeney Todd'' a.k.a [...]

Shoot ‘Em Up »

The plot is fairly simple and the pacing of the film wastes no time getting to it. Clive Owen, Paul Giamatti, Monica Bellucci Within the first five minutes of this deliriously over-the-top action flick an innocent bystander known only as Smith (that hardened rogue Clive Owen) kills a man with a carrot (yes, the vegetable) [...]

King of Kong »

A true underdog story,I strongly recommend this film to anyone with a heartbeat (or an intense love of video games will suffice). Billy Mitchell, Steve Wiebe In 1981 Nintendo released an arcade game known as “Donkey Kong.” The idea was simple; an Italian plumber with a bushy mustache and fashionable red overalls must maneuver over [...]

Juno »

The fearless, brilliantly talented Page (who also stars in this year’s ''The Tracey Fragments'') infuses ''Juno'' with such intelligence, energy and feeling that we love her even when she’s being a jerk Ellen Page, Michael Cera, Jennifer Garner, Jason Bateman, Olivia Thirlby, J.K Simmons, Rainn Wilson Juno MacGuff (Ellen Page), the sixteen-year-old heroine of the [...]

Eastern Promises »

A compelling thriller with a unnerving sense of realism (coupled with unapologetic violence) with intense, stirring performances and brilliant direction. What else could you want out from a cinematic escape? Naomi Watts, Viggo Mortensen, Vincent Cassel, Armin Mueller-Stahl Acclaimed director David Cronenberg (''The Fly'', ''eXistenZ'') has reunited with his ''A History of Violence'' star Viggo [...]
