Interstellar Soundtrack and Sound Effects Featurette

Unusually, director Christopher Nolan withheld the release of the score for Interstellar until two weeks after the release of his new film, believing the emotional impact is best married to the full, cinematic experience. And that includes the “experiential” sound mix, that has garnered such a debate about audibility and clarity of dialogue. “I’ve always […]

Reappreciation Society: Kingdom Of Heaven

David Thomson, in his book “Have You Seen?” said of Anthony Mann and Charlton Heston’s Bank Holiday stand-by El Cid, that it is “one of the last authentic epics in American film history,” although admitting that today it is “rather awkwardly anti-Islamic in its basis.” At the time of writing (2008) he didn’t think “there […]

Review: Interstellar

It’s funny how some Nolan naysayers bemoan an apparent lack of surprise in his films, that he signposts events and twists, then throw their hands up at the apparently baffling and ludicrous climax in his latest, most expansive film yet, Interstellar. Well, were you paying attention?  He was dropping breadcrumbs (or corncobs) right from the […]

The Amazing Spider-Man 2 Review

The biggest fear that everyone had about another Spider-Man film was that it would be too messy and convoluted for its own good. The early teaser posters certainly did nothing to reassure fans with them featuring three villains. Everyone held their collective breath and hoped this wouldn’t be another Spider-Man 3.
