A Ghost Story Review

Very Good

Filmmaker David Lowery reunites the stars from his offbeat Western Ain't Them Bodies Saints for an even more offbeat drama about the afterlife. A ghost story in which the lead character is a guy under a sheet feels like it should be funny, and yet this is a resolutely arthouse movie, inventive but pretentious and high-minded. Yes, the silly imagery makes us giggle, but Lowery strikes such a somber tone that we can't help but take it seriously.

Casey Affleck and Rooney Mara reunite to play a couple whose happy life comes to an end when he is killed in a car crash. Now he wanders around their small house, watching his wife grieve, only able to communicate to another ghost who's haunting the house next door. After his wife packs up and moves on, this sheet-clad spirit sticks around, trying to communicate with a single mother (Sonia Acevedo), then a partying mob of ravers, including one guy (Will Oldham) who launches into a diatribe about the meaning of existence. But since he's dead, this ghost has only begun to experience his own journey through time and space.

Yes, as it goes along, the film spirals out into the kind of epic exploration of eternity that Terrence Malick keeps making (see The Tree of Life or To The Wonder). The central conceit of having Affleck performing under a white bedsheet is very clever, because it undercuts all preconceptions about ghost movies, offering a refreshingly earthbound approach that avoids swirly digital effects. But the fact is that, no matter how dark the film's tone is, it looks rather ridiculous. And Lowery only just barely gets away with walking this fine line between corny self-indulgence and meaningful drama.

C and M are a married couple who love one another very much, they live together in their little detached suburban home where C composes his music. The pair are incredibly close and when C is killed in a fatal car accident M is left with only the memories of their time together.

M goes to the morgue to identify her husband and confirms that the body is him and returns to their little home. M is alone but not quite as alone as she thinks. C didn't cross over to the spirit world, he remained on Earth and is now living in their house. M is full of grief for the loss of her husband and often listens to his musical compositions, particularly the song he wrote for her.

Whilst M is living in the real world, time and space are a completely different case for C as months and years feel like minutes and seconds. When M attempts to move on with her life and finally brings a man back to her home, C becomes angry and his manifestation and causes the power to go out as well as throwing books around the home.

Dev Patel Nicole Kidman Rooney Mara

Following its premiere at the 2016 Toronto International Film Festival, the word 'Oscars' has been mentioned more than once.

Based on the memoirs 'A Long Way Home' written by the real Saroo Brierley along with Larry Buttrose, the story follows Saroo's (Patel) search as an adult for his Indian family, having been raised by Australian adoptive parents Sue (Nicole Kidman) and John (David Wenham). Though most of his early years are forgotten, there are a few crucial memories that have remained. He remembers being trapped on a train for two days after losing his brother, and eventually ending up in Calcutta nearly 1,500 kilometres away from home.

Lion Trailer


Saroo Brierley has lived a good life with his caring mother and father in Australia, but as he grows older, memories begin to return to Saroo of his life before he was adopted.

When he was young, Saroo lived with his family in a small village and since the father of the family left years earlier, Saroo's mother looks after him, his 2 elder brothers and young sister; she works as often as she can to feed and care for her children but often that just wasn't enough. Wishing to help the family, the two elder boys would often go off and beg at the busy railway station and find occasional work helping sweep trains.

When Guddu announces that he's going to the train station, his younger brother (Saroo) asks if he can go with him, he accepts and the boys set out on their journey. With his little brother feeling tired, Guddu leaves his brother to rest and tells him to stay where he is. The five year old did what he was told for a while but soon grew impatient by his brother's absence, he decides to go look around the train station and eventually falls asleep on a stationary train thinking his brother would know where he was. When the little boy awakes he finds himself speeding through unfamiliar landscapes with no way to escape.

'Pan' Bombs At US Box Office, As 'The Martian' Holds Tight


Hugh Jackman Matt Damon Rooney Mara Michael Fassbender

Pan has failed to take flight at the box office this weekend, debuting with a disappointing estimated $15.5 million total and taking third place. Joe Wright’s retelling of the classic tale stars newcomer Levi Miller as Peter Pan and Hugh Jackman as Captain Blackbeard.

Pan was rolled out in more than 3,500 US theatres this weekend, but studio Warner Bros will be hoping it does better when it hits more markets. The film, which cost over $150 million to make, had been scheduled to hit cinemas back in July, but was pushed back earlier this year.

Pan Review

Good

After several high-profile grown-up movies (from Atonement to Anna Karenina), director Joe Wright aims this Peter Pan origin story squarely at children. So while it's far too manic and broad for adults, this adventure will be the most exciting movie any 8-year-old has seen in years. It's colourful and fantastical, and it thankfully doesn't indulge in reworking the beloved J.M. Barrie stories. Instead, it imagines an action-packed prequel universe.

As German bombs fall on London during the Blitz, young Peter (Levi Miller) is up to all kinds of mischief in the grim orphanage overseen by Mother Barnabas (Kathy Burke), who sells bad boys to airborne pirates. Sure enough, one night Peter is taken, sailing into the sky to Neverland, where he is sent to work in the mines for the swaggering, heartless Captain Blackbeard (Hugh Jackman). In the mines Peter is befriended by the adventurer Hook (Garrett Hedlund), and when Peter discovers that he can fly they make their escape. Blackbeard chases them out into the woods, where they take refuge with Princess Tiger Lily (Rooney Mara) and her tribe, which is convinced that Peter is the child of a prophecy that will lead the fairy kingdom to freedom. But just when Peter learns who his parents really were, Blackbeard catches up with them.

This is an old-school kids' movie, packed with larger-than-life characters and outrageously imaginative action sequences that make the most of the 3D cinematography. Yes, there's so much digital trickery going on that the movie is essentially a cartoon, but it's so vividly explosive that it's a lot of fun to watch. And many of the big set-pieces are genuinely thrilling. There's also quite a lot of fun to be had in the way the story twists the familiar characters around. Obviously, Hook couldn't have always been a bad guy; here he's one of the heroes, and he still has both hands, which hints that further prequel adventures may be on the cards.
