OJ Reviewing: The Village

I wasn't going to reviews this movie because it was an old one and not a very big one after the brilliant Skyfall but it was so unlike anything I've ever seen before I just had to do it.

 With The Village you can't actually describe the film without spoiling it in some way. It has so many secrets and strange concepts that you can't quite believe it. It is directed by a man called M. Night Shaymalan who has done many secret-surrounded films that can be dark and thus very good; I haven't seen many of his other films so this was a bit of a first and I really enjoyed it. Some people will find the beginning or the whole story a bit boring as it takes a bit to get going for it is very secretive as I said. But I liked it myself and some elements really gave you, not so much a scare, but when you put yourself in the characters' situation. So I can't really say much about it if you ever see it but it is one of the most interesting concepts I've ever seen and I don't recommend it to everyone as it is not a 'feel-good-film' but some people will defiantly not like it and others probably don't know. But after everything I enjoyed it.

OJ Reviewing: Skyfall

My first ever James Bond film; yes, I really haven't seen any others.

 Wow. Skyfall. My first step into the Bond world was amazing so lets start with the beginning. A lot of the first scene was in the trailer and it was the most action-packed, edge of your seat beginning I've ever seen, and then just as that finishes you get the famous Bond intro which I'd never seen anything like it before so this was really strange but also fascinating and went on longer than I expected. So after that you start the film Skyfall.
  I have to say the whole plot to Skyfall was exceptionally good, a few parts I knew I'd seen in other things but I wasn't expecting them and that was good, I liked the way they set up the villain with all these people who fear him and so you defiantly smell a "rat". The film itself was 143 minuets so you defiantly have a bit to take in and you get a bit of background story to quite a few characters and learning about that was enjoyable. The special effects in this film were very good and a few things they did were very clever and I imagine there were some references to the past. The comedy wasn't as funny as  expected but I just looked over that when  I think of the movie as a whole.
  So, my first Bond film is Skyfall - and  really enjoyed it. One of the best films I've seen this year and recommend it to not only Bond fans but also to the others, like me, who have had little experience because you will enjoy it.

OJ Reviewing: The Amazing Spider-Man

A big film review coming up this weekend so to quench your thirst until then I have this.

 So. The reboot of Spider-Man. I actually enjoyed the original trilogy and thought it was pretty good - until I watched The Amazing Spider-Man. Wow, this film is so much better with the characters, background  comedy, and overall plot. It exceeded my expectations and I most certainly will watch it again. Unfortunately I didn't get to see it in 3D which now I wish I had as some scenes you can see would look fantastic in 3D; especially the parts where the camera is looking through Spider-Man's eyes because they do that a lot and it looks great. One of the only things people might not like about the movie is that it takes a bit of time to get going, the beginning lasts a bit but I liked watching it though others may find it boring or lagging. So apart from that the movie is an absolute awesome film and is one of Marvel's very best.
   If any of you saw it in 3D please tell me what it was like and which scenes stuck out.
