This movie had potential to be great. Not that it was disastrous, but it wasn’t really all that exceptional either. Alongside the legendary The Notebook and the semi-legendary A Walk To Remember, this movie does not quite reach those lofty romantic heights.

This film is made with such a warm, photgraphic style that it could have been about the secret lives of moths and I wouldn’t have cared. I give it a million kudos; it’s a beautiful, cute and unique true story about a family trying to find themselves again after the death of their wife and […]

Defiance is an all-rounder—your dad will probably love it, your guy mates will love the action and your girl mates will love the eye candy. Jamie Bell has certainly outgrown his Billy Elliot years and Daniel Craig is on fire […]

In the style of Tom Hanks’ Big, this film tells a tale of 30-something Mike O’Donnell (Perry), who discovers his life turned out the complete opposite of what he had planned. Going through a divorce with a woman he still loves, his children won’t talk to him and denied a promotion—his life is turning into […]
