TimVoon wrote a review of Bruno. I watched the R rated version on DVD – the version that had been prohibited in Australian cinemas. I wish I hadn’t. I was flashed a good 30 second screen shot of Sacha Baron Cohen’s penis shouting “Bruno” and I’m still recovering from the post traumatic stress of that frightful vision. The main ... more

TimVoon wrote a review of Four Christmases. Christmas draws nigh again and on its tail is a trail of Hollywood movie offerings released to lighten the pockets of holiday viewers. I missed the release of FOUR CHRISTMASES last year, but it has arrived on DVD this year on Santa’s sleigh. For some reason a lot of Christmas movies feature ... more

TimVoon wrote a review of Long xiong hu di (Armor of God). This movie is also known as “Operation Condor 2 – The Armor of the Gods” and was one of Jackie Chan’s biggest hits of the 1980s. It is available now in most DVD rental stores due to Chan’s emerging popularity in the western world through the late nineties and into this century. It is unfortunately ... more

Genre: Action & Adventure

TimVoon wrote a review of Mutant Chronicles. On occasion, I do like to borrow a mindless movie about zombies/mutants who wreak death and destruction on the world, and I got exactly what I asked for – the mindless bit. The year is somewhere in the future, on some distant planet where a mysterious machine hidden beneath the earth is converting... more

TimVoon wrote a review of Genova. GENOVA is an interesting study of how the sudden death of a family member can affect the dynamics within that family. Starring Colin Firth, this independent film is set initially in the cold winters of Chicago before moving to the warmer climes of sunny Italy – Genova. The opening sequence is of ... more

TimVoon wrote a review of A Prairie Home Companion. In Robert Altman’s latest film we experience a pleasant ride into the past era of live radio broadcast in country America. The cast members are well chosen and perform with gusto some great country tunes from another era. There is a lot of singing, quirky characters and light humor thrown into this ... more

TimVoon wrote a review of An Inconvenient Truth. AN INCONVENIENT TRUTH is one of the most important documentaries to be released in 2006. I’m sitting at my desk as the bright sun glares through my study window. It is only mid-spring and already the temperatures outside are soaring to 35 degree Celsius, and noticeably missing is the spring rain... more

An Inconvenient Truth

Genre: Documentary

A documentary film, directed by Davis Guggenheim, about former United States Vice President Al Gore's campaign to educate citizens about global warming and inspire them to take action.

TimVoon wrote a review of A Good Year. I truly wanted to dislike this film, if only because it was starring Russell Crowe (not one of my preferred actors). However, I left the theatre feeling pleasantly surprised. Maybe I was in a good mood, maybe I was feeling charitable or maybe the cinematography of Provence rekindled fond memories of... more

TimVoon wrote a review of Cheri. I always feel that Michelle Pfeiffer is at her best when seen in a period piece. Her delicate, porcelain features just seem to compliment the silk and satin cushions, antique china and silverware. Two films which show her at her best are period dramas – DANGEROUS LIASONS and the beautiful Scorsese ... more

Cheri

Genre: Romance

The son of a courtesan retreats into a fantasy world after being forced to end his relationship with the older woman who educated him in the ways of love.

TimVoon wrote a review of Observe and Report. If I had to pick a movie about shopping mall security to watch it would not be OBSERVE AND REPORT. Starring two likeable comic actors, Seth Rogen and Anna Faris (who I thought was hilarious in THE HOUSE BUNNY), I was particularly disappointed with the final outcome. Like PAUL BLART: MALL COP – the... more

TimVoon wrote a review of The Twilight Saga: New Moon. NEW MOON is the second book in the Stephenie Meyer best-selling series THE TWILIGHT SAGA. It is also the lull point of this saga as much as THE TWO TOWERS was a lull point for THE LORD OF THE RINGS TRILOGY. This is not to say that it is of any less consequence than the other parts of the Saga; in ... more

The Twilight Saga: New Moon

Genre: Romance

Continuation of Stephenie Meyer’s blockbuster series about teenage vampires.

TimVoon wrote a review of Land of the Lost. I’m not sure where to begin with this movie. Frankly, I’m almost at a loss for words after viewing LAND OF THE LOST (2009) and being bombarded with images of one of the silliest attempts at movie humour to hit our screen. I should have seen this coming, after all it stars Will Ferrel, but even ... more

Land of the Lost

Genre: Comedy

Dr. Rick Marshall gets sucked into an alternate universe full of dinosaurs and other fantastic creatures.

TimVoon wrote a review of Bottle Shock. If you are expecting a road movie, mixed in with wine and melodrama, BOTTLE SHOCK is not another SIDEWAYS. Wine and the California Nappa Valley are probably the only things these movies have in common. BOTTLE SHOCK is set in 1976 during a period of time when the emerging wine industry of ... more

TimVoon wrote a review of 2012. Think of every disaster movie you have ever seen, put it all together in a cauldron and add the whiz bang magical ingredient of the latest special effects, and you have the big bang of a movie 2012. Remember the eruptive forces of VOLCANO (1997) and DANTE’S PEAK (1997)? Well they peter at a weak ... more

TimVoon wrote a review of Twilight. With the upcoming release of NEW MOON 2008, I thought I had better do my overdue review of TWILIGHT, Part one of the TWILIGHT SAGA. I first came across this movie in December 2008, during my travels abroad. I had finished a rather eventful day at Universal Studios, Florida; got soaked on the Pop ... more

TimVoon wrote a review of The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus. If anyone is familiar with director Terry Gilliam’s work, you will be expecting a visual feast and a very difficult to follow story line. The cult classic BRAZIL (1985) will jump to mind – visually stunning, emotionally stirring but, ummm... but as to the storyline, what storyline? That movie still ... more

TimVoon wrote a review of Mao’s Last Dancer. If anyone is guessing as to the peculiarity of this title, it refers to a period in China’s turbulent history, during the time of the Cultural Revolution when anything and everything remotely associated with the West was burned, ridiculed and its protagonists imprisoned or demeaned. This, of course... more
