Jock of the Bushveld [3D] [ Hits:11522 ]
Review: Jock of the Bushveld is a South African story by Sir James Percy Fitzpatrick. Written and published in 1907, it wasn't long before the tales of Jock and his master became a bestseller and South African classic, now translated into Afrikaans, Dutch, French, Xhosa and Zulu. In 1986, Jock of the Bushveld was adapted to film starring Jonathan Rands as Percy Fitzpatrick with music by Johnny Clegg. The adaptation didn't fare well with American audiences and was later re-released with a happier ending....

Toy Story 3 [ 2010 ] [ Hits:10293 ]
Review: Toy Story 3 completes the groundbreaking Pixar Toy Story trilogy 11 years after Toy Story 2 in Real 3D. It's been worth the wait... as Toy Story 3 throws fourteen new characters into the toy box, ups the stakes for the gang and presents another near-perfect animated adventure. The original voice cast of Tom Hanks (Woody), Tim Allen (Buzz), Joan Cusack (Jessie), Don Rickles (Mr. Potato Head), Wallace Shawn (Rex), John Ratzenberger (Hamm) and Estelle Harris (Mrs. Potato Head) are back! It feels li...

UP [ 2009 ] [ Hits:9664 ]
Review: UP is possibly the shortest name for a film since X, but we're not talking about Spike Lee's film on Malcolm X, the first X-Men movie, the X-Files or even the similarity of illiterate people's signatures. We're talking about UP, Pixar's latest Best Animated Film Oscar in the wake of "WAAAALLLLL-E" - pretty irritating after a while. If you've ever thought you could fly without smoke or mirrors, you should watch this movie. It's a must-see, as are all of Pixar's films, with the exception of Cars. ...

Kung Fu Panda 2 [ Hits:9053 ]
Review: Kung Fu Panda 2 is a sequel, and sequels generally have two options... one, stick to the formula and deliver more of the same or two, reinvent and approach from a new perspective. The Spider-Man franchise delivered a darker, more introspective sequel as a follow-up to the successful reboot of the live-action Spider-Man superhero. While Spider-Man introduced us to the character of Peter Parker becoming a hero, Spider-Man 2 introduced us to the darker side of the character as he grappled with his ...

Rango [ Hits:8346 ]
Review: Did you get a slightly uneasy feeling when you discovered Pirates of the Caribbean: Curse of the Black Pearl was a Disney movie? Mild surprise may be a better description, well - you may have experienced a similar feeling when you found that Captain Jack Sparrow, better known as Johnny Depp, is Rango. That's right... the coolest actor in Hollywood, famed as a clumsy pirate is a swashbuckling "lizard".Just when you thought he couldn't possibly do anything without Tim Burton's permission, he un...

Shrek Forever After [ 2010 ] [ Hits:8141 ]
Review: The world would seem a little out-of-place without that lovable, jolly green ogre with the Scottish accent and his jabbering doggedly companion, Donkey. It's sad to say goodbye to the big green fella, but we'll always have his happy-go-lucky adventures. Shrek Forever After concludes the Shrek franchise in 3D, drawing to a close the last chapter of the tongue-in-cheek fairy tale saga. It's been fun, but all good things have to come to an end. Shrek Forever After is an improvement on Shrek the Thi...

Puss in Boots [ Hits:8022 ]
Review: Spin-offs are a risky affair which can either pay off in spades or lead to an annoying mob of disgruntled movie franchise fans. The answers to important questions like “How similar do we keep the spin-off?”, “How much of the original cast should return?” and so forth always has a huge impact on the new venture’s success. In the case of ‘Puss in Boots’, director Chris Miller (Shrek 4, Shrek 3, Shrek 2) seems to have had all the right answers, as his latest addition to the Shrek le...

Megamind [ Hits:7694 ]
Review: It seems that if you're blue, you're in vogue... well that's if pop culture in 2010 is anything to go by with James Cameron's Na'vi tribesmen in Avatar, The Smurfs feature film and now our giant blue-headed villain in Megamind. Perhaps Andy Warhol was really onto something with his colour transition duplications of Marilyn Monroe and John Wayne's heads when he coloured them blue? Perhaps it's the post-recession/posthumous Michael Jackson era that's made being blue cool again... although quite fr...

Brave [ Hits:7137 ]
Review: Whatever Dreamworks can do, Pixar can do better. It’s been a game of ping-pong for these major animation studios, who seem to be constantly trying to out-animate each other. In their latest battle, Brave vs. How to Train Your Dragon, it seems that Dreamworks may have just clinched it from Pixar, whose work has been slightly less than perfect of late. Brave tells the story of Princess Merida, a reluctant young woman whose ancient custom would have her give up her independence without a say in ...

Hop [ 2011 ] [ Hits:7098 ]
Review: Santa is dead. Rudolph the red-nosed reindeer has been flogged within an inch of his life and they will not ride again... at least not until next Christmas. After years of recession, Hollywood has had to do the unthinkable and re-open wabbit season. Just when you thought Bugs Bunny was safe, along comes... no, not Elmer Fudd but Hop - the quintessential candy-coated Easter story to rewrite history and nestle in as a companion piece to the splurge of chocoholic and shopaholic fever that takes ove...
