The Hobbit – An Unexpected Journey – release date 14 December 2012

The book that really launched the Lord of the Rings Trilogy and which is loved by millions of people all over the world finally comes to the big screen.

In this reincarnation we have a kindred cast from the Lord of the Rings and a look and feel we have come to expect.

Those who loved the animated versions or earlier versions will we expect love the larger than life world that has now been created.

The Story:

Bilbo Baggins is swept into a quest to reclaim the lost Dwarf Kingdom of Erebor from the fearsome dragon Smaug. Approached out of the blue by the wizard Gandalf the Grey, Bilbo finds himself joining a company of thirteen dwarves led by the legendary warrior, Thorin Oakenshield.

Their journey will take them into the Wild; through treacherous lands swarming with Goblins and Orcs, deadly Wargs and Giant Spiders, Shapeshifters and Sorcerers. Although their goal lies to the East and the wastelands of the Lonely Mountain first they must escape the goblin tunnels, where Bilbo meets the creature that will change his life forever … Gollum.

Here, alone with Gollum, on the shores of an underground lake, the unassuming Bilbo Baggins not only discovers depths of guile and courage that surprise even him, he also gains possession of Gollum’s “precious” ring that holds unexpected and useful qualities

The Life Of Pi

Life of PI

The Life Of Pi is an amazing book which looks like being an amazing break through movie from the award winning director Ang Lee.

The trailer is amazing and we look forward to seeing how the books amazing imagery translates to the big (or super big screen). Everything we’ve heard and seen so far, suggests this is going to be one of the visual treats for the year, and we strongly this The Life of Pi will end up getting many awards.

If you haven’t yet, read the book, and smile..

After all .. how often do you get rescued by a life raft only to find yourself stuck with a tiger…

The Book of Eli

The Book of Eli is a 2010 American post-apocalyptic action film directed by the Hughes brothers, written by Gary Whitta, and starring Denzel Washington, Gary Oldman, Mila Kunis, Ray Stevenson and Jennifer Beals.

The movie came out and left many people blown away.

The vision of the future is very stark, and probably closer to one truth than many would like to consider. It clearly draws on several films from the past – mad max, many from the world of Asian cinema, and yet it has a very unique feel.

Denzel Washington remains in our view a real master of his craft and someone who we know is getting better and better.

For the would be film maker it highlights several key points.

The mind is more important than the reality.

A lot of the story of Book of Eli comes from the audience, the soundtrack, the look of the film, the editing and the production.

This is a movie that we urge you to watch (just don’t be in a scared mood before you do), and several of the key points will make you jump and raise your tension. Notice how they do this.

Also how “known” elements in a new context open up a whole new perception.
