The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo – David Fincher Style!

5 Jun

Well a trailer for the remake of the first of the best selling trilogy of The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo has hit the web on Empire website.

It looks awesome and we can’t wait to see the movie which is released in December this year.

Let us know what you think in the comments section below.


This weeks films…

19 May

Three films watched and to talk about this week;

Firstly Black Swan, awesome performance by Natalie Portman and really well directed by Darren Aronofsky, Natalie Portman plays a fragile ballet dancer pushed to her maximum and more poignantly to her breaking point in her life between her tutor, rival dancers and a mother who is a bit spooky dooky.  Well worth a watch even if I was pushed in to it by my female chimp!

The Next Three Days was pretty entertaining, Russell Crowe plays, well, Russell Crowe, and the build up to the end is okay.  Basically husbands wife convicted of murder while he has to stay at home, make ends meet and look after his son.  So if he did not have enough problems, he decides to break his wife out of jail after she fails in an attempt to take her own life.  The main question throughout the film for me was “Did she do it?” but I couldn’t possibly tell you the answer, just feel good that you do find out which for me was honestly a big relief at the end of the film making it just worthwhile watching it.  Watch it, unless you can only watch one of Black Swan or The Next Three Days!  (Don’t tell my wife I said that though).

Finally, a little old school now, but re-watched Toy Story 3 with the baby chimps.  Basically, it looks like it is the end of the line for Woody, Buzz and Co as Andy looks to ship out to college.  Basically, the Toy Story films just got better and better with each film and this one even made me almost cry…..ALMOST.  Great film for all occasions, will make you laugh, will make you cry (ah hum) and will make you feel like you didn’t just waste an hour and a half of your life in any way at all.  Enjoy!

All are available on iTunes, Love Film, Netflix, Blockbuster, Blu-Ray, DVD and anywhere good in your relevant country!

Best watched on AppleTV or Blu Ray.


Best Apple placement in a movie….

18 May

Okay I have watched a lot of films and they are everywhere…..Apple products are definately the tech of preference when someone wants to use a computer or electronic device (such as iPhone) and so on.

But my favourite so far has to be in a scene of Inside Man (directed by Spike Lee). Madeline White’s Apple Cinema Display on her desk (MW is played by Jodie Foster) has to be the scene where I thought, I gotta get me one of them! Problem is it would collapse my desk probably.

Since then there have been numerous Apple products but the Cinema dispay stands out in this scene…just how big do you need a display on your desk!!!???

Let me know your favourite Apple product placements and indeed any others that perhaps made you think, “I need one” or “Thats ridculous”!
