The Rise of Streaming & The Online Revolution

In the 8 years since I published my treatise on BluRay and the High Definition Revolution, the home entertainment landscape has shifted dramatically. Last weekend, a bombshell event occurred that I doubt most people would have even been aware of were they not in America, watching the Superbowl, or a film fan. Netflix, internet streaming service giant and all-round upstart in the home entertainment market dropped a trailer for their upcoming film The Cloverfield Paradox midway through the game, which wasn’t a significant event in an of itself – the Superbowl…

Happy 10th Birthday, Fernby Films!!

December 11th, 2017 marked the 10th anniversary of the creation of this very website. Although not originally a film review site, Fernby Films transformed into the critical analysis hub you know and love in early 2008, after our December 2007 review of Transformers became quite popular. The site was originally intended purely as a repository for my random thoughts and marketing for the production of a small short film I was making (Schoolyard Justice), before my focus started to find its way into rekindling a love of cinema I’d lost…

From The Editor – We’re on holidays!

Morning friends! I thought it might be an appropriate time to let all our faithful readers know that for the next few weeks, there will not be any new posts on the website. Yes, for the first time since May 2008, we’re having a mini-hiatus! I’m taking the family off on a well-deserved holiday interstate for a fortnight, so there won’t be any new posts up here until May 1st. So fear not, new stuff is coming, it’s just being kept in reserve until I return!

Road To The Oscars – Oscar Week Begins!

As hard as it is to believe, but Oscar time has rolled around for another year! It’s only 7 days until we’re all attentively watching the broadcast from the comfort of our couches (or wherever) and mocking, cheering, jeering and social-media-ing our way through yet another three hour solemnised celebration of all things cinema, as the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences delivers their exclamation point to the 2016 year of film. The Academy Awards will be broadcast next Monday (Australian time), and as usual we’ve put aside the…

Strings and Horns: How John Williams Could Have Helped The DCEU

There’s no denying it: John Williams is one of the greatest composers who ever lived. The fact that he’s created more memorable movie tunes than almost anyone else alive or dead is testament to his power as a creator of thematic material, something I believe missing from many of today’s blockbuster releases. Among his many graceful motifs, one of the most enduring is his themes for Richard Donner’s 1978 film, Superman, the first big-screen, big-budget extravaganza that swept audiences away with the adventures of the Man Of Steel. The theme,…

Great Games That Are Based On Movies

As many people will know, the world of movies and the world of gaming have become intermingled over recent years. There are now many movies that have been turned into games and also many games that have become so popular that they have been turned into blockbuster movies. This is great news for those who enjoy both watching films and playing games, as it gives them a greater opportunity to enjoy their favourite themes and characters. There are now many exciting games that are based on movies, enabling players to enjoy an immersive and exciting gaming experience.

From The Editor – A new logo & The Landmark Series begins!

Afternoon folks! Well, if you’re a sharp eyed observer you’ll have already noticed our shiny new site logo at the top of this page. We’ve stepped away from our favourite font, Impact, for the first time since 2008, and removed the “busy” looking film-reel motif that’s been around since we upgraded the site midway through 2015. The reason for the changes are two-fold.
