Retro Movie Review – Battle Of The Sexes

Emma Stone is quickly becoming the Meryl of her time and she is consistently outstanding in this and pretty much every film she stars in as of late. Steve Carell is also perfectly cast as the buffoonish Bobby Riggs. Using the actual audio from the original match (recorded back in 1973) really does show how ingrained the male chauvinism was at that time.   //   The film plays out like a time capsule of the day and the attention to seventies detail is outstanding. Even ...

Retro Movie Review – Birdman (or The Unexpected Virtue of Ignorance)

Mexican writer and director Alejandro González Iñárritu has delivered a story inside a story about a past his use by date movie star, Keaton, who previously reaped the riches and empty adulation that went with his role of playing the big screen superhero Birdman.

Except for Rosario Dawson, whose new character is well written and gets to kick serious ass. //   The script also makes some strange choices in structure with two of the main cast members (Emma Stone and Abigail Breslin) leaving the action after the second reel ...

The Favourite Movie Review

The filmmakers use quite a number of tricks to keep the viewer from falling into comfortable habits. The camera use features fisheye lenses to give a unique and somewhat distorted sense of proportion and the soundtrack is often times ominous and disjointed. The dialogue is razor sharp and filled with acid toned wit. It’s delivered with a delicious sense of controlled malevolence   //   The film also provides a chance to see three great female actors work at the height ...
