Official Synopsis: A banished hero of Rome allies with a sworn enemy to take his revenge on the city.

Read the Blue Corner's take on

Electing to contemporise one of Shakespeare’s arguably lesser known works for his directorial debut, Ralph Fiennes has also opted to take on the titular role for the second time in his career – last played over ten years ago during a London stage run. Set against […]

Tagline: Nature Teaches Beasts to Know Their Friends

And here it is… the long awaited directorial debut of the wonderful Mr. Ralph Nathaniel Fiennes. Let me begin by saying in no way did he disappoint. The film itself is based on the Shakespeare play and the language retains its Shakespearean roots, which if you [...]

Haywire (2012) | Review

Official Synopsis: A black ops super soldier seeks payback after she is betrayed and set up during a mission.

Read the Blue Corner's take on

For most, the big selling point of Haywire was the inclusion of former MMA (Mixed Martial Arts) fighter Gina Carano in the title role, with the promise of gritty action scenes. Certainly, there was always going to be an inherently linked fear that the acting would […]

Tagline: They left her no choice

And so we come to review our first 2012 release of the new year. How better to begin that by saying the trailer gave me hope… The cast… gave me hope. While I wouldn’t say all hope is indeed lost for the film upon its viewing, [...]

Official Synopsis: The IMF is shut down when it's implicated in the bombing of the Kremlin, causing Ethan Hunt and his new team to go rogue to clear their organization's name.

Read the Blue Corner's take on

Perhaps in jest, Director Brad Bird adopts Battlestar Galactica‘s inexplicable decision to include a number of shots from throughout the movie during the opening credits. Thankfully there’s nothing truly unexpected, with the crossing and double crossing being fairly clear from the outset, so getting to see […]

Tagline: No Plan. No Backup. No Choice.

Can it really be that the first mission impossible installment was in 1996 and that it is still going? This fourth, and unlikely to be final, installment opens in the eastern European and spy movie favourite; Bucharest. Unknown spy gets shot and briefcase stolen by sultry [...]

Official Synopsis: Plagued by a series of apocalyptic visions, a young husband and father questions whether to shelter his family from a coming storm, or from himself.

Read the Blue Corner's take on

Suffering from the ever increasing trend of being advertised as something entirely different, coupled with a disappointingly low key release (as now seems a given for anything other than a sequel or superhero movie), Take Shelter is an effective story showing the onset of mental illness, […]

Tagline: A storm may be coming

I wasn’t sure what to expect of this film really. As soon as I saw lead actor Michael Shannon I knew I would have trouble empathising with this character. He was clearly made to be a baddy and gave a good and creepy performance in Bug (2006). [...]
