New X-Men: Days of Future Past trailers are fantastic

If you didn't realise by now the upcoming X-Men film X-Men: Days of Future Past is packed with talent both old and new, we're seeing the joining of the original X-Men actors with their counterparts from the previous film X-Men: First Class, a fantastic reboot, restart and origins film if ever there was one.

Fincher's Gone Girl trailer

Who wouldn't be excited or at least extremely interested in a new trailer for a David Fincher film? Do you really need me to reel off a list of films he's directed? Well let me give you the highlights - Alien3, oh come on now, it's not...Show More Summary

Haggis' Third Person trailer

I like Paul Haggis' work, not because of his last name but because of his talent and some of the films he's written and/or directed - Crash (Filmstalker review), Million Dollar Baby, Casino Royale (Filmstalker review), Flags of Our Fathers, Letters from Iwo Jima, The Next Three Days (Filmstalker review).

The Zero Theorem

I've been holding off on this review for Terry Gilliam's latest film The Zero Theorem for a number of reasons. The most prominent is that I've just not been sure how to write it and put in words what I thought of the film, the otherShow More Summary

Is Television overtaking Cinema?

The question has been asked for some time now and every year seems to be coming to the fore more and more and being posed in different ways. Is television overtaking cinema? Is it producing better quality and more interesting stories...Show More Summary

An Inconvenient Truth sequel, the right time?

If you're one of those people that believe global warming isn't happening, that these extreme weather events and changes in standard weather patterns we are experiencing are faked, a standard cycle of the Earth or are going to be magically...Show More Summary

Ridley Scott's company producing Halo

Finally someone has the ambition and foresight to develop a Halo film project. However don't get too over excited as it will be a digital offering and will no doubt be heading out on XBox, much like the Steven Spielberg Halo series.Show More Summary

Stalked: Trailers for The Drop; Jupiter Ascending; Mobius; Raid 2: Berandal; Edge of Tomorrow; Wolf Creek 2; Night Moves; X-Men: Days of Future Past

I've been keeping my eyes on some of the trailers that have been popping out recently and there are some big ones, but there are also a few smaller films that have stonking trailers and promise a hell of a lot. Here's a selection. There's...Show More Summary

Half of a Yellow Sun

This year at the Glasgow Film Festival the number of lower ranking choices on my watch list that I ended up having to see due to scheduling conflicts was much more than normal, but that isn't such a big surprise. What is a surprise is how many of these films actually turned out to be really good. Show More Summary

Concussion

Another surprise of the Glasgow Film Festival for me was the film Concussion. When I first went to see the film I wasn't sure what to expect, what I didn't expect was a cleverly written film that is more an allegory for the mid-life crisis and a look at long term relationships. Show More Summary

Mystery Road

I've seen a few Australian thrillers in my time at the cinema and at festivals and it's been pretty much hit and miss, however I am a big fan of thrillers and the ideas being Mystery Road had me drawn to it. There was also another reason,...Show More Summary

Wakolda: The German Doctor

Wakolda was perhaps the biggest surprise of the 2014 Glasgow Film Festival for me. It came as a, and I apologise to everyone involved in the film for this, as a third choice film - first choices are films I have to see, second choices...Show More Summary

Locke

Tom Hardy, Steven Knight, and a story that holds the character and the audience inside a car for the entirety are what drew me to Locke. Anything detailed you read of the plot and the idea of the single location may not make it sound...Show More Summary

Gravity

When I first saw Gravity in the cinema in 3D the visuals amazed me, not the 3D itself, but the way that they had managed to create space and to take the audience there. Not only did they make us believe a film crew had been in space,...Show More Summary

A Touch of Sin (Tian zhu ding)

This was another film that I saw at the Glasgow Film Festival because of chance. It was down my list of films to see but it happened to fill a gap between some other high priority films - it's always the case that the schedule has to be shuffled around the available screenings at Festivals. Show More Summary

Salvo

My interest was piqued when I heard that Salvo was a stylish film following a mob hitman. The main plot overview is something we've all no doubt seen before, the hit gets a little complicated, a woman is involved, and the previously stone cold loner hitman acts against his contract and his bosses and forms a bond with his victim. Show More Summary

LFO: The Movie

When I first saw a comparison of LFO: The Movie to Berberian Sound Studio (Filmstalker review) I was a little concerned, after all I didn't take to that film as much as it seems other people did. It was confusing, left too much unsaid and unexplored, and was too vague and artsy to be enjoyable. Show More Summary

The Raid remake gains director

Have you seen The Raid: Redemption (Filmstalker Review)? No? Well you should do and you should get your hands on it as soon as possible. This is an action film to top all action films and has moments that you can hardly believe are real,...Show More Summary

Zemeckis gains star for 3D Man on Wire film

Robert Zemeckis has found a leading actor for his next film, a film about Philippe Petit, the man who walked the tight rope between the Twin Towers of the World Trade Center in 1974 and who was the focus of the recent well received documentary Man on Wire. Show More Summary

Hank and Asha

By chance this was the first film I saw at the Glasgow Film Festival in 2014 as I received it in a batch of review DVDs and just happened to pick this one first. Lucky for me I chose it. The blurb for the film didn't sell me on the idea when I was selecting the titles to see this year, what did was how it would work on screen, and if indeed it would. Show More Summary
