Retro Movie Review – Knight and Day

The comic elements of this film provide the viewer with the most entertainment and Cruise is at his best when he tones down his more strident nature on-screen. Cameron Diaz provides just the right amount of wide-eyed innocence to sell her side of the story and together they actually have a fair amount of chemistry.   //   The story, as is the case in most films of this type (a tale of spies and double crosses) is almost completely preposterous and that really just adds ...

Retro Movie Review – In The Loop

The film is predominantly dialogue based and a lot of the humour is quite quick so attention must be paid but it’s a hilarious world to enter. A place where everyone has their own agenda and is not afraid to do what ever they can to make things happen. Morality and virtue definitely take a backseat to self-serving and narcissistic behaviour.   //   The television show’s documentary style and handheld camera look is mostly kept intact as are the chances for the actors ...

Retro Movie Review – Argo
