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…

Skyfall James Bond

Skyfall – James Bond

Skyfall James Bond

Skyfall James Bond

Bond’s loyalty to M is tested as her past comes back to haunt her. As MI6 comes under attack, 007 must track down and destroy the threat, no matter how personal the cost.

Skyfall is the upcoming twenty-third spy film in the Eon Productions James Bond series, produced for MGM, Columbia Pictures and Sony Pictures Entertainment.

For a twist it premiers in London, October 26th and in the US November 9th.

This is a great example of pre promotion and there is a lot of anticipation after the last few bond films.

The look of the film and the tone are very on point.

We have tickets to see the film at Imax available to VIPs care of  Fresh And On Point and Simon X

We can’t wait till the public release of The Super Spy – which remains under wraps publically but is extremely interesting

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.

The Watch

The Watch

TThe Watchhe Watch Trailer 2 (2012). Suburban dads who form a neighborhood watch group find themselves defending the Earth from an alien invasion !

Aliens are coming.. to a mid town in the USA…

This is a conventional premise but the Ben Stiller crew have taken it … well to a whole different level.

I don’t know who / how the script was constructed, but it resembles the child like narratives of Wayne’s World.

A fascination with jokes about … male reproductive organs, etc.. leave little room to guess at the main audience target.

Strangely coupled with a sub plot about revealing the truth of a low sperm count by the main hero.

Oh, and the story of a father dealing with a young girl going out for the first time..

This movie will make you laugh in places.

It will make you groan in others.

Was it fun.. well kind of, and this morning it has left more memories than we expected.

Was it the best movie ever … no.

Was there clear product placement.. Costco, Trojan, and others.. yes..

Does that matter.. not really.

For all about the most forward thinking of relationships this is not a date movie in our view.

All in all.. this one is to be seen where it will go.

I can imagine it was “fun” to film.. but not what you’d expect from this calibre of actors and production.

Maybe we were in the wrong mood or the right mood.

Maybe just we’re used to more here in Blighty, and this felt like a half attempt at going off piste..

So.. from the team at Film Blast.. our fingers are in the orb… and we’re powering up.

Not sure if we’re going to blast or not.. yet…

Classic lines..

“Is it true that your father ripped the XX*A of your last boyfriend? I’ll get your daughter home by 10:30pm sir… ”


if you like the IT Crowd.. Richard Ayoade our star is there.. but not in Kansas anymore..

Visual: 8/10
