Quick review of Toy Story 3 by Nora Kirkeby
In 2010, the first half of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows was released. Directed by David Yates, who picked up the series after Goblet of Fire, the movie was a spectacular success.
A film review of the Dark Knight by Nora Kirkeby.
I personally saw Julie and Julia as the perfect movie about Julia Child, one that took a character I could relate to (someone a little unstable, lost, and above all human) and made a connection from her to Julia Child (essentially a cooking god).
The City of Ember, was an excellent children’s movie, and I had expected as much from it. Directed by Gil Kenan, the movie is based on a book by Jeanne DuPrau. The book has been chosen by the American Library Association as a notable book. Luckily many of the fantastic qualities and morals contained in the post apocalyptic novel, are present in the movie.
I’ll be honest, after the painfully slow Da Vinci Code movie, I wasn’t expecting much from Angels and Demons at first. As the previews showed us more and more though, I started to think that it might be a passable movie. By the time it came out I was even excited about it.
You might have heard the name of this independent floating around…Slumdog Millionaire. Fox Searchlight picked it up for circulation and people are taking notice. Honestly, their attention surprises me.
The Batman comics and cartoons had so much color, and pageantry, but the attempt to translate this more traditional Batman to the big screen, comparatively only ended in failure. Thankfully, “the night is darkest before the dawn,” and the previous poor attempts have given way to two masterpieces.
From the Spiderwick Chronicles series, came The Spiderwick Chronicles, one of this season’s most endearing children’s movies.
When it comes to The Golden Compass, I think that the review of the movie, and the review of the book, have to be linked. As you may or may not know, there has been a lot of controversy surrounding both.
