FILM REVIEW; ME, EARL AND THE DYING GIRL

I don’t normally fall for tear-jerkers – I hardly watch tear-jerkers to be honest. I passed on the well hyped The Fault in Our Stars last year just because but after watching the debut feature from Alfonso Gomez-Rejon I admit some throats were lumpy and some pillows tear stained. Me and Earl and the DyingContinue reading “FILM REVIEW; ME, EARL AND THE DYING GIRL”

FILM-CAP; DIVERSITY, BLOFELD, JOHN WICK 2…

This week nothing on the local scene has moved my needle. There was a Ghanaian production in theatres which I didn’t bother to see (Silent Moment). If you saw it you can give me a review or something. I did see The Scorch Trials (not Trail like I put in my review which you shouldContinue reading “FILM-CAP; DIVERSITY, BLOFELD, JOHN WICK 2…”

FILM REVIEW; THE SCORCH TRIALS

A couple of scenes into The Scorch Trials I realised just how little I could recollect from this film’s predecessor. As I write this I still haven’t bothered to hit the Wikisphere. I do remember was the tempering in tone of the Maze Runner to meet the 12-A rating in the UK. Having sat throughContinue reading “FILM REVIEW; THE SCORCH TRIALS”

FILM-CAP; TELENOVELA PORNOS, NOLAN’S AKIRA…

I haven’t done much writing this week, just a feature breaking down the tiers of Ghanaian cinema so please check it out. As a throw back how about my review of Ava Duvernay’s Selma too. So what’s been happening on the Ghanaian film circuit? Well it turns out a group of movie producers in Ghana areContinue reading “FILM-CAP; TELENOVELA PORNOS, NOLAN’S AKIRA…”

FILM-CAP; PETTINESS, SUPERHERO FATIGUE, CRUISE NEWS…

This week the Film Cap looks to the next Chris Nolan film. Doug Liman and Tom Cruise reunite for a new sci-fi film and Zach Snyder talks super hero films. I always like to start stateside and I have some things to say about the Last Night single character gimmick and the opening of aContinue reading “FILM-CAP; PETTINESS, SUPERHERO FATIGUE, CRUISE NEWS…”

GHO GHIRL!

“Gho Ghirl” – corny I know. The good Lord will be spanking me for that title. I gripe a great deal about Ghanaian cinema and rightfully so because the glass is always half empty for me. To paraphrase a friend, you’re silly if you don’t see it that way. Well call me silly then becauseContinue reading “GHO GHIRL!”

FILM REVIEW; DARK PLACES

It’s a bit unfair to bring up Gillian Flynn and David Fincher’s exceptional adaptation of Gone Girl when talking about the latest Flynn book adaptation, Dark Places, so I’ll pass on that. Gilles Paquet-Brenner’s adaptation is as nuts and bolts as they come and whilst it isn’t a badly made movie, the material still wanted for someContinue reading “FILM REVIEW; DARK PLACES”

FILM REVIEW; DRAGON BLADE

If you go into Dragon Blade with low expectations, I won’t hold it against you. A world that has John Cusack and Adrien Brody matching up against the Jackie Chan as equals in battle must have lost the plot however intriguing that prospect may be and lest we forget, this film is inspired by theContinue reading “FILM REVIEW; DRAGON BLADE”
