With the emergence of South Korean cinema in the last ten years or so stemming from its striking ‘revenge’ films, violent episodes where people commit deplorable crimes and are duly punished for them; Memories of Murder is decidedly not as barbaric as the Vengeance trilogy ..
At Home: I Am Love
02/08/2012 05:49:48 AM
Unsurprisingly, I Am Love’s score on IMDb ranks at 6.9 (contrasting with its 79 Metacritic score) indicating users had a tougher time grappling with the film than critics did, a response that’s expected with a film that appears to be so abstract and rooted in style over substance.
In Cinemas: The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo
02/08/2012 05:45:44 AM
I wasn’t swept away when The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo became this unavoidable thing in modern culture. I haven’t read the Stieg Larsson's book but I have seen the Swedish original and while it boasted an impressive performance from Noomi Rapace as the titular character it came acr..

Review: The Devil Inside
01/06/2012 00:14:52 AM
What do we have here? It’s another “found footage” movie. While we’ve seen quite a few of these now, The Devil Inside is different from the other ones in some ways. They don’t use witches, ghosts, aliens or monsters that show up in New York City out of nowhere. This o..
Review: The Adventures of Tintin
01/02/2012 00:49:46 AM
I haven’t watched an animated movie in a very long time. The last one I saw was probably the original Toy Story movie. Since I’m an adult now, I don’t have any real interest in watching these things. With that being said, I did decide to review The Adventures of Tintin. It’..
