Robert Pattinson’s “The Batman” Suit Reveal

Director Matt Reeves has revealed the first look at Robert Pattinson in the new Batsuit for “The Batman”. I’ve been awaiting this with a lot of excitement ever since Pattinson was announced in the titular role back in May 2019, and this camera test footage has left me counting down the days until June 2021.

Annihilation [2018] Review

Annihilation is a rare film, and Alex Garland is a rare writer/director (not forgetting the source material’s author in Annihilation’s case; Jeff VanderMeer). He is the only person I can think of that has captured the sci-fi trends that Hollywood has missed in the last 20 years.

New Year, New Digital Me

Happy New Year fellow photographers, lighting professionals and cinema lovers. You may notice that things are looking a bit different around here now.

Blade Runner 2049 [2017] Review

Where to even begin with this. I’m won’t sit on the fence teasing you so that you read the entire post to find out what I though. I’ll put my cards on the table now; I absolutely loved Blade Runner 2049.

The first half of 2017 looks promising. Let’s hope that the studio executives don’t have final cut on the trailers!

Rogue One: A Star Wars Story [2016] Review

Amongst Rogue One’s gritty and war-torn tone and visuals, it kept an ecstatic grin across my face for the entire 134 minute run time. There were moments of shock, humour and suspense throughout. Even knowing the story’s outcome before buying my tickets, the was enough going on around this to keep the audience entertained and begging for more.

Here’s The Blade Runner: 2049 Announcement Trailer (Thankfully It Looks Good!)

Relieved, to say the least! Without giving away too much, yes, the Vangelis soundtrack and neon-noir lights are back.

Scarface (1983) #NowWatching

I dusted off the DVD after a decade, and felt like I watched a totally different film. I was a little older. A (little) wiser. A little more observant.
