The Toy Story franchise has always been close to my heart. The first movie really showed of that characters made out of 3D-models could actually tell a story and show emotions. That first movie was a landmark in film which will be talked about for more than hundred years from now. In the meantime the series contains four entries and now is a great time to discuss which one is the best and which one is not that good.
When it comes to directors, there are a few I personally view as the best of the bunch. Tarantino, Nolan and off course Spielberg are my personal favourite and the latter one started its career with the movie I’ll discuss in this article. Duel is a nice psychological thriller about a driver who is haunted by a mysterious truck driver.
With the Coronavirus outbreak happening at this moment, a little part in us is curious about potential ‘what if’-situations. This is proven by the recent popularity of Contagion (2011) in the Apple iTunes movie store. Let’s have a look at some other examples of popular media like movies, video games and even board games which use a virus outbreak as their main theme. (You won’t find any extraterrestrial viruses or zombiepocalypse movies in here by the way.)
Demolition is a movie about a successful investment banker Davis Mitchell (Jake Gyllenhaal) who abruptly loses his wife in a car crash. During the rest of the movie we see how he deals with this loss during the first weeks after it happened.
So Disney Plus is here. At least in The Netherlands. A new VOD-competitor in a market that is quickly becoming a little bit crowded. The Walt Disney Company is one of the largest media conglomerates that actually dares to enter the VOD-market with its own streaming platform. The Netherlands is lucky to be the test market and as I am living there, I am willing to share you a few reasons why this new VOD platform will not be the one you should sign up for (yet). Off we go!
Dog Day Afternoon is a 1975 classic piece of film by director Sidney Lumet. It is often referenced as being the classic example of a perfect heist movie. Al Pacino plays the main character Sonny Wortzik in this movie, which is inspired by a robbery on a Brooklyn bank by John Wojtowicz (Sonny) and Salvatore Naturale (John Cazale) in 1972.
The original Sin City movie was released in 2005 and wowed the audiences with impressive special effects; stylish film noir visual effects and multiple great stories. So in 2014 the release of Sin City 2 should’ve topped that with ease right? Well, unfortunately not. Sequels are often a lot worse than the originals, but Sin City 2 takes this to the extreme. In this article I will give you six reasons why Sin City 2: A Dame to Kill For was so much worse than the original.
A little over two weeks ago, Netflix pulled a great stunt by announcing and releasing Cloverfield Paradox at the same day. Pretty much everyone praised this move, but the fun was quickly over as many viewers found out the movies was a piece of sh*t. At least that was their opinion, but after watching it myself, I think this motion picture deserves a lot more love. Spoiler alert of course!
