When Marnie Was There Review

Very Good

Japan's Studio Gibli has been responsible for some of the finest animated movies in recent decades, from 2003's Oscar-winning Spirited Away to last year's beautiful The Tale of the Princess Kaguya. Now adapted by Disney with a starry Western voice cast, their films are reaching a wider audience. And this remarkably moving drama shows how complex an animated movie should be, skilfully grappling with grown-up themes through a child's perspective.

The story comes from the Joan G. Robinson novel about Anna (voiced by Hailee Steinfeld in the English-language version), a 12-year-old who lives in Sapporo with her foster mother Yoriko (Geena Davis). But Anna isn't like the other giggly girls at school, and after an asthma attack, she moves to the countryside to live with Aunt Setsu and Uncle Kiyomasa (Grey Griffin and John C. Reilly). They give her plenty of space to explore the area, and when she spots an abandoned seaside mansion, she is unexpectedly drawn to it, befriending Marnie (Kiernan Skipka), the free-spirited girl who lives there. Anna understands that Marnie is an imaginary friend, then is surprised to find Marnie's diary hidden behind a bookshelf in the rambling house.

The twisty plot incorporates a range of elements that keep the audience off-balance: Is this a ghost story? Is Anna mentally unstable because of her difficult background? But the film is much deeper than that, and as Anna takes a fiercely original journey to self-discovery, the film touches on all kinds of resonant themes. For example, Anna struggles with her self-image, never believing that she's a talented artist, although she clearly is. This has left her feeling like no one else likes her either. So it's both fascinating and moving to watch her blossoming relationships with both the young girl Sayaka (Ava Acres) and the older woman Hisako (Vanessa Williams) who paints by the seaside. Both offer emotional insight into Anna's story.

One And Two Trailer


Zac and Eva are two children closed off from the entire world, they live with their parents on a remote farm with little communication and little outside influence. Their mother is a loving woman who takes care of her family to the best of her ability, and does her best to keep the children away from their father.

Though their father loves them, his strict rules and regulations enforced on the children are far from enjoyable. Under the cover of nightfall Zac & Eva both enjoy nothing more than escaping the confines of the house for a few moments enjoyment. Believing his children have always had a special gift, their father's rule is one of very tough love though it begins to all become too much for the rest of the family.

One and Two stars Mad Men's Kiernan Shipka & Timothée Chalamat as Eva and Zac respectively and was shot in in Columbia, Missouri, in 2010. One & Two was directed by Andrew Droz Palermo and written by Andrew and Neima Shahdadi.

For the past fifteen years, the American Film Institute has honoured ten films and ten television shows that truly show off what the year had to offer. 2014 had a particularly good year for films, however, so for the first time, the AFI Awards actually awarded eleven motion pictures with the honouree status. A whole host of celebrities gathered in celebration.

Kate Winslet Or Shailene Woodley? Who Was Best Dressed At 'Divergent' Premiere?


Shailene Woodley Kate Winslet Ashley Judd Ellie Goulding Theo James Kiernan Shipka

With a cast like that of new blockbuster Divergent it’s not a surprise that the movie’s premiere was packed with stylish stars. The red carpet was swarming with a wealth of designer ensembles, and that’s just from the men! We’ve have a root through all of the fabulous outfits from the evening and picked out the looks that we love the most. 

kate winslet divergent premiere We're in love with Kate's Safiyaa London gown

Kate Winslet may have given birth to her baby boy just three months ago, but you’d never have been able to tell, so fabulous did she look in her floor length red Safiyaa London gown. Bear Blaze has got one yummy mummy, that’s for sure! Kate completed her look with two totally on trend accessories, a metallic gold clutch bag and gold cuff bracelet.  This girl knows how to red carpet (she does have a fair bit of experience at it!).

Cats & Dogs: The Revenge Of Kitty Galore Review


Weak
Things have been ramped up considerably in the nine years since Cats & Dogs, and it's not good news. This film is more of a full-on spy spoof, but unlike the original it's too talky and chaotic to engage with either kids or adults.

Diggs (voiced by Marsden) is a brave but impulsive K-9 cop sacked from the San Francisco police force but recruited by the top-secret dog intelligence agency to work with veteran Butch (Nolte) to stop the menacing Kitty Galore (Midler) from taking over the world. But the cats aren't happy with Kitty's evil plan either, so feline spy Catherine (Applegate) teams up with the dogs. Yes, dogs and cats working together! Of course, Diggs' human partner (O'Donnell) and Kitty's magician owner (McBrayer) are oblivious.

Carriers Review


Good
Well-made but not particularly inventive, this post-apocalyptic thriller is like a college road movie crossed with Mad Max. The cast is much better than this thin script deserves, but the film does generate some great jolts.

Brainy Danny (Pucci) and his more action-oriented brother Brian (Pine) are driving through Colorado with Brian's girlfriend Bobby (Perabo) and their friend Kate (VanCamp) when they encounter a man (Meloni) who's trying to get his sick daughter (Shipka) to a clinic. She has the highly contagious disease that has killed off almost everyone, so extreme measures are needed to prevent infection. As they continue across the Southwest, heading for a Gulf Coast beach they remember from childhood, they encounter various other survivors and are forced to make some brutal decisions.
