Dumbo (1941)

Dumbo (1941)

6 / 10
Dumbo flies through its short runtime with endearing tenderness. The 1941 animated classic that recouped the financial losses from 'Fantasia'. Short, simple and sweet. It made perfect sense for Disney to adapt this story. Many regard this as the e... Read the full review »

Incendies explodes into a thrilling mystery-drama that tackles both family and history. As a fan of Villeneuve's work, it was imperative that I experienced his earlier work. To cement the accolades and acclaim that he receives, not just by me, but... Read the full review »

Troll Hunter completes the hunt for an imaginative premise but falls bait to the "found footage" trolls. Ahhhhh! That, right there, is the most accurate description of my brain currently. Disappointed is an understatement, and I don't think a brie... Read the full review »

The Prodigy loses its intelligent setup by succumbing to generic jump scares. Think 'Orphan' with a dash of every other generic possession film you can think of. Just another "evil child" flick with minimal thrills, scares and one heck of a predic... Read the full review »

Frozen Fever receives a frosty reception despite its springtime warmth. Elsa plans on giving Anna a birthday party but starts showing symptoms of a cold. Suffice to say, this short is just a glorified music video. It doesn't further any character... Read the full review »

Ghost In The Shell 2 Innocence dances across its philosophical themes like sentient marionettes. It comes as no surprise that I am a huge fan of Oshii's original ambitious science-fiction feature. It transcended philosophies and ideologies through... Read the full review »

Broken City feels more like a broken film. Crime thrillers involving the corruption of policing forces and powerful politicians tend to imitate the aesthetics of a noir classic. Sometimes it works, like with the case of 'LA Confidential', and othe... Read the full review »

Imperium nearly successfully infiltrates the ideologies of white supremacists. 'American History X' will always be the imperative film involving neo-Nazis and nationalism. No film has come close. Here we have a standard crime thriller that utilise... Read the full review »

The Aftermath lacks passion and romanticism within its illicit love triangle. Certainly with every WWII film I review, I consistently state how saturated the genre is. Well, that's because it is. Every year we see four or five released, with many... Read the full review »

The Cable Guy plugs itself into the comedy circuit using a damaged wire. Carrey was at the height of his career back in the late 90s. The pinnacle of American comedy. Even the most mediocre films garnered a huge response thanks to his energetic pe... Read the full review »

**1000TH FILMFED REVIEW** Watership Down may look cute and fluffy, but don't be fooled. This animated adaptation of Adams' adventure drama is one that has sparked controversy over recent years, due to its certification. Many deemed its themes to b... Read the full review »

My Sex Robot feels stiffer than a fembot giving a handjob. Sometimes (quite often actually) I question some of the films that I watch. Well, I think this takes the biscuit. A documentary that follows various male individuals quenching their relent... Read the full review »

Mission Impossible 2 is set on slow-motion "Tom Cruise" control. De Palma's film adaptation of the television series knew what it was. A fun, slick spy thriller that acknowledged how ridiculously crazy it was. Woo comes along for the sequel, with... Read the full review »
