Brilliantly conceived and executed, Interstellar might have been the next leap-forward for sci-fi cinema, were it not for the broad-canvas scope withering the small-scale character narratives. Although it stumbles through some of its complex philosophical flourishes, and offers few answers to the questions it asks, I think this is a film worthy of viewing by anyone with a passing interest in humanity.
Utterly compelling conclusion to Nolan’s Batman trilogy, a film offering little respite from the darkness and despair accommodated by the previous two outings. Bale actually find the truth to the Bruce Wayne character, while Tom hardy is convincing even under a ¾ face mask – no mean feat – all the while the possible destruction of Gotham reverberates across the screen with every passing minute. A fitting – if lengthy – finale to one of the great trilogies of our time – nay, ever.
Earlier this year, the majority of film critics and audiences were blown away with director Christopher Nolan’s follow-up to The Dark Knight, Inception. Inception is a film we’ve already reviewed here at fernbyfilms.com, and you can follow this link to read it, but we thought we’d have a shot at giving you our thoughts on the BluRay presentation of the film, released back in December. Whether you like the film (or are among the twelve people on planet Earth who did not…. fools!) is irrelevant to your enjoyment of this BluRay version of the film, for it represents one of the formats most impressive visual and aural presentations to date.
Intelligent, stunningly concieved science fiction fantasy, Chris Nolan’s follow-up film after The Dark Knight is a damn fine piece of entertainment. It’s not without its flaws, though, but I’d go as far as to say that Inception will be getting some attention come Oscar time.
The Dark Knight is everything you could want in a Batman movie: violent and dark, truly inspired by the character, and seemingly without hope. Yet, throughout the film, the theme of hope is realised all the time, something you’d not think about until after the fact. I thoroughly enjoyed this film, although the tinge of sadness you feel that Ledgers performance can now never be repeated is somewhat offset by the thought that the set up for following instalments leaves the characters wide open to a new, brave director to try and capture. The Dark Knight is utterly recommended, and perhaps the greatest Batman film ever made.
Stunning reboot for the Batman franchise sees Christian Bale step into superstardom for the role of Bruce Wayne, in this blockbuster film that is actually pretty damn good.
Twisty, labyrinthine thriller showcases both its leading men, with Bale coming out on top for acting kudos this time round. One of those films where the ending is a complete question mark twist, The Prestige will satisfy even the most hardened, jaded cynic.
