Life Of Pi Official Trailer

LifeOfPiI posted a few weeks back that I had mixed feelings about Life Of Pi being turned into a movie because the book was so powerful and I was afraid Hollywood would ruin it.

Well, following hot on the heels of that post, here’s the official trailer for Life Of Pi, which is due for release this December.

Hard to tell from the trailer whether they’ve butchered this classic or not. Ang Lee is directing it so one thing’s for sure, you can bet your ass it’s going to be stunning visually, but until I’ve seen the finished product I’m remaining cautiously optimistic that they’re gonna pull this one off.

Movie Review: The Dark Knight Rises

the-dark-knight-rises-new-featuretteJ-Rab and I hit up the Dark Knight Rises premier last night courtesy of Nokia, who used the opportunity to officially launch the Lumia 900, and wow, what a brilliant movie.

Because I realise most of you haven’t seen it yet, I’m going to try and keep this as vague as possible in terms of the actual plot.

Co-writer and director Christopher Nolan is nothing if not a master of genius plot twists and the last thing I want to do is give his art away so don’t worry, this review is spoiler-alert free.

For starters, and I think this goes without saying, don’t go into The Dark Knight Rises expecting a movie that is anything like its predecessor.
