// new featurette – HUGO – Martin Scorsese & James Cameron

// can you feel the love?

Earlier in the year we saw James Cameron lightly cuddling Michael Bay’s use of 3D technology in his decidedly average Transformers 3: Dark of the Moon movie. Today Paramount have sent me more of a Director-on-Director deep throating. The lucky recipient this time is Mr. Martin Scorsese for his groundbreaking use of 3D technology in up and coming release Hugo

It’s actually a little less painful than the Bay interview because you can believe that Cameron actually really likes what MS has pulled out his cauldron of creativity. The film is currently running a pretty solid 96% on Rotten Tomatoes, so it’s certainly moved to the top of my must-see list. Take a look. I’m sure you’ll agree, Hugo look beautiful even if I’m still not entirely sure how the plot fills up a decent movie house visitation.


Hugo tells the story of an orphan boy living a secret life in the walls of a Paris train station. With the help of an eccentric girl, he searches for the answer to a mystery linking the father he recently lost, the ill-tempered toy shop owner living below him and a heart-shaped lock, seemingly without a key.



// what did you watch?

// Each week, on a Sunday, I hand the reigns of movie criticism over to you. Tell me what you saw at the Cinema or on DVD/Blu-Ray that either made your pants moist or your temperature sky-rocket due to its brilliance or whackness. If you’ve seen a movie, I want to know about it.

Your review doesn’t need to be sprawling epic like many of my reviews. it can simply be the name of the movie and a rating out of 5. It really is that easy. For example, White Chicks – the greatest movie ever made, 5/5.

This month, the prize will be the opportunity to have your review featured on the site. Plus if it’s really good perhaps we can make it a regular gig. Who could say no to that?!

The bar has been set. I look forward to your responses.

Thanks for writing.


// interview – Michael Bay & James Cameron

// Two cinematic behemoths have a chin wag about using 3D.

3D. Love it or hate it, it would appear that it’s here for the long haul this time. Especially when you have two of the biggest directors climaxing over each other when it comes the future possibilities of the technology. The link below will take you through to a conversation with Michael Bay & James Cameron titled, 3D: A Transforming Visual Art. The conversation looks into how 3D cameras were used in making the new Transformers 3: Dark of the Moon movie.

It’s pretty interesting to see how they compliment each other plus if Transformers 3: Dark of the Moon can get a thumbs up from James Cameron, then it should repair some of the damage done by Revenge of the Fallen.
