Pan - International Trailer


Peter was but a small boy when he was left at an orphanage by his mother, with no belongings other than a small metal pan around his neck. For some years, he grew up with no knowledge of why he his mother left him, but things become clear when he discovers the mystical world of Neverland. 'Pan' takes us back to the very beginning of Peter Pan's story, from his unlikely friendship with James Hook to when Blackbeard was his arch nemesis, fighting in a land above the clouds, where ships sail the air and giant crocodiles lurk beneath the mermaids' lagoon. Soon Peter learns that he was prophecised to return to the land and defeat Blackbeard, with his ability to fly and his unwavering bravery being his only tools. This is a boy who never wants to grow up, but he's about to realise that sometimes maturity and responsibility falls on you without choice.

Pan Trailer


Peter was sent to an orphanage as a young boy with nothing but a small metal pan pendant left to him by his mother, who predicted great things for her son. Indeed, he goes on to experience the most exciting childhood anyone could dream to have, flying around on airborne ships from the mystical world of Neverland. And while it may be an enjoyable time, there are still great dangers that lie before him; the most feared pirate in all the land, Blackbeard, is out to bring the land under his tyrannous rule and Peter finds himself a target. Meanwhile, he meets James Hook, a fellow traveller who becomes his friend and protector, and it isn't long before he then bumps into a vibrant tribe led by the formidable Tiger Lily, who reveals to him that his arrival marks the end of the pirates' terror. But Peter is just a boy, and however brave he might be, does he really stand a chance against these merciless villains?

Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy Review


Excellent
It's rare to see a film in which writers, director and cast all respect the intelligence of their audience. So when it happens, it's something to savour.

Especially when it shows as much audacious skill as this British thriller does.

In the Cold War paranoia of 1973, there's a Russian mole in British intelligence. And the top boss Control (Hurt) has narrowed it down to four top colleagues (Firth, Jones, Hinds and Dencik). He asks faithful George Smiley (Oldman) to root out the spy, so he and Peter (Cumberbatch) begin a complex investigation that involves a discredited agent (Hardy) and a murdered operative (Strong). But the truth only seems to get more elusive the further they descend into the rabbit hole.

Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy Trailer


In the 1970's, former spy George Smiley (who is in forced retirement), is called in to investigate the news that there is a Soviet mole of high-ranking within 'the Circus' - the in-house name for MI6 - who has been there for years making him one of George's former colleagues. George manages to narrow his search down to four men, all colleagues of his. His rivalries and friendships with each of the suspects will make it difficult for George to locate the mole who is eroding at the centre of the British government.

Love, Honour and Obey Review


Weak
A gangster movie with a sarcastic slant, Love, Honour and Obey seeks to entertain without mental stimulation. It's not The Godfather or The Sopranos, but instead a loose string of scenes brought together in bits and spurts to tell a simple story.

Ray (Ray Winstone, Nil By Mouth and The War Zone) is the boss of the south London mob. Jude (Jude Law, The Talented Mr. Ripley and eXistenZ) is his obedient nephew, and Jonny (Jonny Lee Miller, Afterglow and Trainspotting) is Jude's buddy who wants a piece of the action. Once Jude gets Jonny invited to take part in the proceedings, he gets a little big for his britches, causing trouble with the north London blokes.

Dancing At Lughnasa Review


Grim
Meryl Streep has made some dull movies in her life, but -- whew! -- none so limp as this. In Dancing at Lughnasa, five downtrodden sisters in 1930s Ireland cope with the arrival of a dying/crazy brother as well as the father of one of thier sons. They may be sad sacks, but play a little ditty and these girls get up off their feet and hit the dance floor -- er, the dance dirt, seeing as there's not much floor to hit. Confused, random, and awfully self-important, this film should never have been made.

Nil By Mouth Review


Unbearable
Categorically one of the worst films ever made, Gary Oldman's meditation on gritty urban drug-abusing/wife-beating life is never poignant or impressive, unless you consider jerky camerawork a sign of genius. The violence, foul language, and drug use all serve no purpose except to generate more violence, foul language, and drug use -- and that hardly merits a film. It just goes to show that if you get famous enough, you can do whatever you want. I just didn't know Oldman was this famous.
