Retro Movie Review – A Single Man
The film, based on the novel by Christopher Isherwood, does have a very distinct visual look. This at times almost robs the film of its emotional impact by being a bit too obvious but the window into the soul of its main character George Falconer (Firth) is so strong, it helps to keep the focus. George is an English Professor practicing his trade in California in the early sixties.
He has suffered a tremendous personal loss and is barely hanging on. His British ...
Official Secrets Movie Review
The film also does little to stir the blood about the outrage of the unnecessary military action and its human cost. It relies too much on your memory of the actual events of the time. In the written coda at film’s end it doesn’t even mention the fact that after all was said and done, no weapons of mass destruction were even found.
Most of the performances are fine and the emotion is delivered in that oh so quaint and subdued British manner. The strength and ...

Downton Abbey Movie Review
Having lost touch wit the TV series a few seasons back, it was reassuring that all the main characters have returned. The screenplay by Julian Fellowes (Gosford Park and Vanity Fair) still capitalises on the show’s MVP and writes some great lines for Violet Crawley (Maggie Smith) and she comically spars with everyone she converses with.
The story based on the impending visit of the King and Queen is used as the basis of an us against them tale. The staff of Downton Abbey ...
