Musings on the final Hobbit trilogy: The Battle of the Five Armies

Seems like it was ages ago since I saw the first Hobbit film. But in fact it was exactly two years ago that The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey was released. There were – and still are – quibbles about how a 320-page book warrants a three-film adaptation, and I was actually one of those people who …

10 Favorite Things about The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug

Much has been debated about whether or not it's a good idea that The Hobbit gets the same trilogy treatment as The Lord of the Rings trilogy when there is only one book being adapted. Now, I actually didn't mind it and given how much I adore the Middle Earth universe, I welcome the extended …

Neill Blomkamp’s sci-fi thriller ELYSIUM’s Poster & Trailer Spotlight

Boy oh boy! I've been looking forward to this film for quite some time now. In case you didn't know already, I'm a huge fan of District 9 which was a surprise to me as I didn't even know much about it when I saw it on the big screen. Well, it's been over three …

10 reasons The Hobbit is a worthwhile journey

I saw The Hobbit twice already, the first time on an advanced screening before my vacation and the second time this past weekend. I enjoyed it both times, perhaps a bit more the second time around. Despite the 2 hrs 44 minutes running time, I find it to be thoroughly enjoyable. That's not to say …

Random Thoughts: The agony & ecstasy of [film-release] anticipation

Yuu huu... it's raining trailers this week isn't it? First we've got the final Batman saga The Dark Knight Rises from Christopher Nolan, I'm sure y'all have seen the epic trailer by now.

Happy Birthday to one of my fave directors – Peter Jackson!

I know today's Halloween but I really don't care for this pagan holiday and horror flicks aren't my forte, so I'd rather wish one of my fave directors, Peter Jackson, a happy 50th birthday instead. It's an interesting coincidence that the actress I featured yesterday made her debut in his film, Heavenly Creatures. I haven't …

The Flix List: Four Best Film ‘Making-Of’ Documentaries

As a film lover and also a filmmaker wannabe, I love watching behind scenes stuff. It's probably the closest thing for anyone to see what's it like to be part of a film crew. Spike Lee once said in an interview, 'had DVD existed when he was younger, he probably would never attended film school.' …

The Hobbit cast shapes up … hurray for Richard Armitage!

I have been following The Hobbit movie news rather casually the past few months, having loved the Lord of the Rings trilogy. The production seems to have hit a bunch of snags. First the director musical chairs (which I'm glad it finally goes back to Peter Jackson) and lately there's the actors' strike that may …
