The Devil and Father Amorth

Fascinating and thought provoking. This is not a perfect doco and there are a lot of things that could have improved it (like having no music at all, going into the background of Father Amorth and possession more). (Secretly, I wonder if the release was rushed for legal reasons). But it is incredible to watch an actual exorcism (which is nothing like the movies) and also to see health professionals talking about it afterwards (and I would have liked more of this too). Some people

Sacha Baron Cohen has now delivered my 2 favourite & memorable characters of the year in the same fortnight. This movie is a strange incongruence. It inspired/engaged/enraged me at the same time as it made me feel flat. It could have been longer (the time flew by) and drawn out the characters more, but I felt that it had said what it needed to say. And the melodrama felt just above where it needed to be. Having said that, the editing is top notch and the performances are at least "on pa

This is DC's best so far...easily. Although not flawless- there are a couple of scenes that didnt need to be included - this is the version that we needed to see. There is so much more time given to the characters in this, the plot is better thought out and structured, and Steppenwolf is no longer a joke. There is actually an urgency in his battles with the JL now. And OMG, Darkseid and Desaad look and sound boss. The recruitment is harder, the fight between the JL and Supes and then

Oh Yeah! THE monster movie of the year is here and just how good is it! Is the plot predictable? Yep - I'd guessed 80% of it 2 months ago. Is it silly? You bet. Are the humans essential? Nah, but we didnt come here for them. We came to see Kong and Godzilla slug it out. And we got that! The scenes with the Kaiju are well thought out and choreographed (can we say that for digital fights?). And do they ever deck it out. The devastation you see on the poster gives away h

I liked this more than I should have. I have tried the games, but am not into the fighting genre of games (although the Injustice series grabbed me for its story). The previous movies were fun and didnt take themselves seriously - which was good, but they got too hammy and over the top. The last cartoon took itself way to seriously and was disappointing and forgettable to say the least. This movie, however seemed to grab everything good from the previous attempts, added actors who kn

So I watched this at a midnight screening when it was released (the first time midnight screenings happened...). The blast of horns for John Willams' score occurred and the title scrawl happened, droidikas appeared - I had a buzz going. But that buzz got less and less as the film wore on. Jar Jar appeared...and then Anakin trying to crack onto Padme...Darth Maul appeared and I got excited, but the dialogue continued like a child had written it and the excitement had dissipated by the tim
