THE PASSION OF JOAN OF ARC


1928 DIRECTOR: Carl Theodore Dreyer Silent cinema is not my strongest subject but one which I have been making a concerted effort to learn about over the past decade, but admittedly at a slow pace. The idea of sitting through a silent film can seem to be chore to a modern audience and to be…

THE END OF THE LINE FOR LG 3D?


As I have commented before of this blog, 3D is being slowly but surely abandoned by the mainstream media companies as 4K UHD (Ultra High Definition) not only takes the lead, but seems to be supplanting what has come before. Light loss is par for the course with 3D both in and out of the…

FILM OF THE YEAR ~ 2016


The Film Of The Year for 2016 is… All the films must have been RELEASED in the U.K. between 1st January ~ 31st December 2016 and I MUST have seen and/or rated it on this site previously. TOP FIVE DEADPOOL (10/10) STAR TREK BEYOND (3D) (9/10) ZOOTROPOLIS (ZOOTOPIA) (3D) (8/10) ROGUE ONE: A STAR WARS…

BEN-HUR: THE END OF THE BLU-RAY 3D?


For the first time that I can remember, with the exception of Star Wars: The Force Awakens (2015) and in some respects, The Phantom Menace (1999/2012), last year’s epic flop, Ben-Hur, a remake of the classic 1959 remake of the 1925 adaptation of the 1880’s novel of the same name, is coming to Blu-ray and…

ROGUE ONE: A STAR WARS STORY (3D)


2016 DIRECTOR: Gareth Edwards This is not the first Star Wars spin-off, but it is joining a legacy of sub par entries to the franchise, certainly as where the big screen has been concerned, with two Ewoks movies and The Clone Wars TV pilot come movie to contend with. But Rogue One is first to…

nEoFILM @ VII


Today we are celebrating seven years of movie blogging with nEoFILM. Beginning life back in November 2009, this blog has both grown in content and gone through several changes. But those changes are generally cosmetic. The heart of this blog is to be simple, short and to the point, to share our passion and love…

THE GOOD DINOSAUR (3D)


2015 DIRECTOR: Peter Sohn The first thing so say about this is that the trailers were very misleading. Instead of having a quiet, meek dinosaur meets human tale, we are given the opposite. In a world where the asteroid did not wipe out the dinosaurs, they have evolved into a farming species and after his father death, our eponymous…

THE FLY (1958)


1958 DIRECTOR: Kurt Neumann As the wife (Patricia Owens) of “murdered” scientist played by Al (David) Hedison, is maniacally hunting for a fly with a white head, both the police and his brother (Vincent Price) are trying to uncover the truth behind his death, which seems by all accounts to be the work of his…

BIG HERO 6 (3D)


2014 DIRECTORS:  Don Hall & Chris Williams Based on a short lived and obscure Marvel comic book series of the same name, Big Hero 6 was an attempt by Disney to develop a Disney feature from their newly acquired catalogue of Marvel properties after Disney’s Marvel buy-out in 2010. Popular though this movie is, I find…

BEN-HUR (3D) (2016)


2016 DIRECTOR: Timur Bekmambetov Who thought it was a good idea to remake Ben-Hur? Well, on paper, it would seem to be a possibility. Ben-Hur has been hitting our cinema screens since 1907, with three other theatrical versions before this one; a short silent effort in 1907, the 1925 silent epic and the blockbusting MGM epic from…

FINAL TRAILER FOR ROGUE ONE: A STAR WARS STORY


So, with less than two months to go, we have probably got all the trailers that we are getting, at least up until the TV spots begin to saturate the web in the run up to what may be one the most important films of the year. With The Force Awakens (2015) successfully rescuing the…
