Beyond the Curtain- (1960)
08:30 - 10:15 - Talking Pictures
5.0/10 Stars

Full Profile vCal (.vcs) vCal (.ics)

This shoddy propaganda piece is the kind of bargain-basement nonsense that gives low-budget features a bad name. Based on a pulp novel called Thunder Above, it stars Richard Greene as a pilot who drops behind the Iron Curtain to prise air hostess Eva Bartok out of the clutches of the communists, who seem to think her kidnapping will give them match point in the Cold War. Faced with a dismal script and locations that would shame poverty row, the unfortunate cast doesn't even try to convince. Quite a comedown for The Seventh Veil director, Compton Bennett.

This bewitchingly oddball "Beauty and the Beast" fairy tale from director Tim Burton is a superlative masterpiece and one of the best fantasy films ever made. Its haunting power, exquisite charm and dark romance are a match for the spellbinding work of Hans Christian Andersen, while Johnny Depp's sensitive performance as scientist Vincent Price's "Punkenstein" creation is a revelation. Humanoid Edward's inability to touch the things he loves because of his razor-sharp fingers makes for potent symbolism of the highest mythic order. The finale packs an unforgettable emotional wallop, assisted by Danny Elfman's gloriously magical score.

An experiment to turn a ship invisible during the Second World War leads to it disappearing without trace. Decades later, an attempt to repeat the procedure brings the vessel back. A surviving crew member is found on board who has not aged a day and is convinced the process will lead to disaster if not stopped.

The team responsible for The 40 Year Old Virgin and Knocked Up is behind this sometimes riotous anti-romantic comedy. After musician Peter (Jason Segel) is dumped by his TV-star girlfriend Sarah (Kristen Bell), he decides to take a trip to Hawaii to get over her. But when Peter arrives, he discovers that Sarah and her new British rock star boyfriend (Russell Brand) are not only staying at the same resort, but in the very same hotel. All three leads are likeable and well cast, while the Hawaiian scenery looks great. But like producer Judd Apatow's previous films, it is somewhat overlong, with several scenes apparently included because they could be, not because they should be. As compensation, it is often laugh-out-loud funny, with Apatow's broad humour delivering belly laughs by the barrel-load.

Ghost stories don't get much more formulaic than this disappointing Hollywood debut from Hong Kong film-makers Danny and Oxide Pang. Far removed from their innovative 2002 chiller The Eye, it's an uninspired tale that seems stitched together from other horror movies. There are references to everything from The Birds to The Grudge, as suburban couple Dylan McDermott and Penelope Ann Miller uproot their two children and move to a secluded North Dakota farm. But the family's new beginning is threatened when their troubled teenage daughter (Panic Room's Kristen Stewart) and her three-year-old brother start seeing ominous apparitions that are invisible to everyone else. The picture opens promisingly with a genuinely scary black-and-white pre-credit sequence that stylishly demonstrates the Pang brothers' talents. Yet while the creepy atmospherics and quick-hit jolts continue throughout, they seem like cheap and empty trickery the more the déjá vu narrative unfolds.


Megamind- (2010)

6.6/10 Stars

Full Profile vCal (.vcs) vCal (.ics)

This fast-paced animated adventure will delight kids of all ages, while also appealing to grown-ups - and superhero comic-book fans. Blue bulbous-headed extraterrestrial villain Megamind (voiced by Will Ferrell) finally defeats his longtime nemesis Metro Man (Brad Pitt), but grows tired of having no one to fight and creates a new adversary, Tighten (Jonah Hill). But when Tighten crosses over to the dark side, Megamind has to come to the rescue of Metro City - especially its spunky TV reporter Roxanne Ritchi (Tina Fey). Director Tom McGrath packs in countless sight gags and whip-smart one-liners, poking specific fun at the Christopher Reeve Superman movies along the way (watch out for Ferrell's hilarious Marlon Brando impression). It's terrific fun from start to finish, even if it doesn't quite match the good-versus-evil japes of The Incredibles or Despicable Me.

Cressida Cowell's successful children's book gets an exciting animated adaptation here from co-writers/directors Chris Sanders and Dean DeBlois (Lilo & Stitch). Teenager Hiccup (Jay Baruchel) belongs to a belligerent Viking tribe that sees dragons as their mortal enemy. But Hiccup is a secret dragon-whisperer and when he helps, rather than kills, a wounded Night Fury dragon nicknamed Toothless, he sets a new course for his family and friends. The film's constantly amusing script boasts plenty of strong characters (including Hiccup's father, Stoick, voiced by Gerard Butler), is poignant where it counts - Hiccup and Toothless getting to know each other - and is consistently cute, clever and touching. But where this highly appealing comedy adventure really excels is with awesome visuals that rival Avatar's. The flying sequences, such as a dazzling trip through the Northern Lights, are stunning and the battles are equally spectacular - although some younger viewers might find them rather too scary.

Stuffy period mystery this is not, as director Guy Ritchie approaches his take on Baker Street's finest in the manner of Lethal Weapon. Though this may rankle with fans of the original Conan Doyle stories, Robert Downey Jr at least brings his undisputed charisma to bear in his portrayal of the legendary detective, even ditching his shirt to show he has brawn as well as brains in a signature Ritchie slow-mo bareknuckle fight. As Watson, Jude Law stands firm in the pair's ongoing verbal sparring match, and the two leads share a mischievous chemistry. A typically sinister Mark Strong impresses, too, as back-from-the-dead villain Lord Blackwood, a killer reputed to be in league with the devil. The views of Victorian London are just as seductive as Downey Jr, who exudes an aura of troubled genius, though that's all the information you're likely to retain, as there's rarely a moment to think between all the fights and explosions.

When "M" says to James Bond, "I think you're a sexist, misogynist dinosaur, a relic of the Cold War", who can disagree? To ram home the point, "M" is played by a woman (Judi Dench) and a key scene is set in a Russian park that is now a dumping ground for statues of redundant communist heroes. However, Pierce Brosnan, on his first mission as 007, quickly established himself as the best Bond since Sean Connery and makes a fetish out of the old-fashioned values of loyalty and patriotism. The villain is not immediately evident - the mysterious Janus - but director Martin Campbell does provide a stunning chase between car and tank through the streets of St Petersburg. There are also splendid Bond girls, including Izabella Scorupco and feisty Famke Janssen, who kills by crushing her victims between her thighs.

As this terrifying and undeservedly neglected picture proves, there was much more to British cinema in the early 1960s than angry young men prowling round the grim north. Truman Capote and John Mortimer both had a hand in the script for this adaptation of Henry James's The Turn of the Screw, in which a governess fears her young charges may be possessed by the spirits of dead lovers. Deborah Kerr is excellent as the haunted Miss Giddens, Pamela Franklin and Martin Stephens send shivers down the spine as the sinister orphans in her care and Peter Wyngarde is evil personified as the brutal Quint. Never has horror looked so beautiful, with Freddie Francis reinforcing the eerie atmosphere with his unforgettable photography. The film bristles with menace as it draws you inexorably towards its chilling conclusion.
