About Time – Movie Review

image

Starting out as a movie that captured me from the first moment I saw the trailer, About Time moved me more than any film has ever done.
The story of a young man, Tim, who finds out on his 21st birthday that the men in his family can travel in time, to change what happens and what has happened in his life.
After his Dad delivers the news of time travel, his Dad asks him what big thing he will do with the ability. The big thing? Find a girlfriend. Probably the simplest of things to do it may seem, but it’s not. Finding that ‘one’ person is difficult and then keeping up the happy relationship perfectly, as Tim wants to, proves to be even harder.
It all turns upside down though, when Tim’s sister has a car crash, caused by alcohol abuse. Tim realises he needs to change his sisters life, and the only way to do that would be to stop her from ever meeting her boyfriend, who’s a bad influence. In doing this though, he changes the gender of his child and realises that he won’t be able to fix his sisters problem and that the best way is to change it is in present time.
Perfect from beginning to end on every aspect if this movie, it serves also as a wake-up call to people who don’t spend enough time with their loved ones and who don’t live life moment to moment, to the fullest extent.

Lego Movie Sequel Bumped Back For Ninjago?

With The LEGO Movie doing astronomically well in the cinemas, it’s hard to believe that Warner would hesitate on scripting a sequel.
It may be possible that they have though, to make way for a Ninjago movie.
The reason behind this odd move?
Warner only has rights to one Lego Movie sequel, whicb from there onwards, Lego and the producers are free to get another studio to work on the films. If Warner decide to take on Ninjago into their studios too, however, it will strengthen the links between them and Lego and create a more likely opportunity for Lego to stay with them.
The question hits us though, will Njnjago be better than The LEGO Movie or will it be a terrible move for the studio?
The script writers that have penned something for Ninjago already, have expressed their worries about the movie, saying that due to the success of The LEGO Movie,
“It set the bar really high for the franchise”.
Another question that arises, does The LEGO Movie really need a sequel?
In the eyes of many, it’s pointless. Yes, there would be laughs and there would be the excitement, but it would probably create less of both that the first movie did and if not planned out properly, could kill people’s love for the movies or even the franchise.
Whichever movie comes first, it looks safe to say that the little yellow people are here to stay.

NEW Poster For The Raid 2: Berandal

A brand new poster for The Raid 2: Berandal has been released. The poster is a mosaic of smaller images that form a larger image of Rama (Iko Uwais).

This movie will be set a few hours after the original, with the main character having little time to relax.

With a lot of criminals after his family, Rama has to go to long lengths to make sure his family doesn’t get hurt.

With his undercover mission taking him into a prison, it seems set to be an epic film.
