The General Review

Probably Buster Keaton’s best film, and oddly enough, it’s not even a straightforward comedy – The General is actually an action film, with clever doses of romance and comedy tossed in for good measure. ‘The General’, which is set during the Civil War, is about a train engineer named Johnny Gray who tries to enlist in the Confederate Army, and is turned down because the army feels he’d be much more valuable for the war effort as an engineer instead of a soldier. However, through a series of misunderstandings, both Johnny’s family and his girl think he’s a coward, and they refuse to speak to him until he becomes a soldier. Months pass, and Johnny, sad and alone, is piloting his train – the General – when it is stolen from him by the North. Continue reading The General (1926 – Free Download) English DVD-RIP

The Secret in Their Eyes Review

A quietly building up of suspense and romance , a terrific movie. The Secret in Their Eyes, has some of the slow pace punctuated by violence of “The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo” and it shares the steadfast leading man (Ricardo Darin), willing to plod along until the crime is solved. And it’s filmed with a contemporary edgy but warm eye, the camera often moving between things so the subject is half seen, or not seen at all, and yet it is so natural you just get sucked in further.

Ran Review

Akira Kurosawa’s 1985, Ran, is based one of Shakespeare’s greatest works, King’s Lear. The film proudly stands along with his other classic such as Seven Samurai, Yojimbo, Roshomon, Sanjuro and the Hidden Fortress. He is a master in the art of filmmaking, no one can film an epic battle scene quite like Kurosawa. Ran is recognized as the most expensive film ever made by Akira Kurosawa, it was at that time, Japan’s most expensive film ever. Being at the age of 75, he still showed us, he’s one of the best in the business. Continue reading Ran (1985 – Free Download) Japanese DVD-RIP

Ikiru Review

Ikiru is a film about life. Constantly complex and thought-provoking, although simple at the same time, it tells a story about life’s limits, how we perceive life and the fact that life is short and not to be wasted. Our hero is Kanji Watanabe, the most unlikely ‘hero’ of all time. He works in a dreary city office, where nothing happens and it’s all very meaningless. Watanabe is particularly boring, which has lead to him being nicknamed ‘The Mummy’ by a fellow worker. He later learns that he is dying from stomach cancer and that he only has six months to live.
