Flim Weakly Review- Pet Sematary

Jean Luc Godard once said “Film is truth, 24 frames per second.” Now, I don’t know what that means, but I do know it's wrong. Pet Sematary cannot be truth, because it's made of film, and truth is made of emotions or something. I also don’t

Interstellar (2014)

After finishing his successful and acclaimed Dark Knight trilogy, Christopher Nolan had a point to prove to fans and critics: that he can step out of his tenure and revisit the noir style that made his name.  In his most ambitious feature…

Twilight Zone: The Movie (1983)

An anthology movie based on that classic TV show (and my personal favourite TV show of all time), Twilight Zone: The Movie may, like many anthology movies, not hit a home run with every segment, but it does a better job than most, and is…

Although 1968 was the year in which 2001: A Space Odyssey was released, it was also the year of the apes, or to be more exact: Planet of the Apes. This sci-fi classic saw Charlton Heston surviving in a world where humans are enslaved by the…

Rise Of The Planet Of The Apes (2011)

I went into this sequel/prequel/reboot of the famous Planet Of The Apes franchise with optimism and a sense of wanting the movie to succeed but I’m sure there are just as many who want the thing to fail and just go away. Because it’s a…

Rise of the Planet of the Apes (2011)

Just one day to go now! Tue Sorensen gives us his review of Rise of the Planet of the Apes... Initially, I’d decided not to review this movie (which opened here in Denmark on August 4), as I didn’t feel there was much to say about it.…
