THE CINEMATIC EXPERIENCE WITH MOVIE STUDIO IDENTS

You decide to take a trip to the local cinema on a cold winter's night. The sun went down almost 5 hours ago yet it's only 8pm. There's a buzz in the air about the film you're here to see, the trailer kicks ass and the director has shown some rea...

“I THINK I’M GONNA BE SAD”… BUT AM I?

It wasn't the opening line I was expecting. When the opening riff to 'Ticket to Ride' plays, it immediately puts a smile on my face, I know it's The Beatles. I know it's played in the skiing scene in Help!, I know it's one of John's songs and I can l...

FUCK ME IN THE BEARD

One of my favourite comedies of all-time is Knocked Up (2007) directed by Judd Apatow, the story of a typical bum of a bachelor Ben Stone whose unlikely 'romantic' encounter with beautiful up-and-coming entertainment news host Alison Scott results in

A TARANTINO PLAYLIST (SORT OF)

Quentin Tarantino (cool name don't you think?) dominated cinema in the 1990's and continues to delight with his ground-breaking work and cool-as-fuck films. By now he has a solid boxset of bold and brash movies which are guaranteed to make you sit up...

THE MATRIX: WHAT WENT WRONG?

What went wrong with The Matrix sequels? First of all, what went right? Well the freeway chase, as long as it is, is fantastic. Very cool idea with the apparating twins too which played out some awesome scenes. As unreal as it felt that you...

STOP ME IF YOU THINK YOU’VE HEARD THIS ONE BEFORE

It's the summer of 1998 in L.A. and some sweaty little man with bad coffee breath is pitching an idea to two Dreamworks executives, each with a cigar between their fat stubby little fingers. Sweaty man: "OK guys, I have a great idea, listen to th...

IT’S A FAMILY AFFAIR

Are you good at spot the difference? Do you like a homage in a film and a little nod to the audience, as if to say "I know you're watching and wow you are clever. Here's a reward for being a smarty-pants."? Well I will attempt to do something sim...
