Birdman wanted to cast Johnny Depp for a very different ending…

Birdman was originally going to have the Pirates star cameo in a proposed ending… So anyone who read my review of Birdman (here) knows that I wasn’t a great fan of the film overall. There were elements I liked as well as many which I didn’t, but due to the fact that I try to avoid spoilers in my […]

Chocolat – Review (Spoiler Free)

A sweet fable about religion and the resistance to change in closed communities… Juliette Binoche stars as a chocolatier who moves through the world with her daughter, dispersing old world wisdom as she goes and releasing people from their inhibitions with the power of delicious chocolate.

I braced myself for the worst after this film’s almost exclusively negative reviews, and although there were the odd moments that succeeded, overall Dark Shadows was largely a disappointment. Burton appears to have tried to pay homage to the original TV series by featuring a large collection of characters, which isn’t necessarily a bad idea, […]
