Showcases Pixar's truly inventive and out-of-the-box creativity. Light-hearted humour with an important moral message. Concept of storks delivering babies used as a platform for a deeper tale. Brilliant visuals.

Guilt-stricken after a job gone wrong, hitman Ray and his partner await orders from their ruthless boss in Bruges, Belgium, the last place in the world Ray wants to be.
I have to admit that when it comes to Colin Farrell, I have been quite disappointed by his overall selection of film roles as they have failed to make use of his unique charisma in a way that should have produced long-lasting and memorable performances. However, in Martin McDonagh's In Bruges, he defies such low expectations and delivers what is perhaps his career-best performance. As the reluctant and shaky hitman Ray, Colin Farrell manages to connect with audiences from the get-go, showing Ray as a tormented criminal who has done a terrible mistake that deeply haunts him psychologically. What makes Colin impressive in the film is how natural his performance is; there is no hint of pretentiousness and arrogance in his character but instead a lot of warmth and humor, giving us a fully-dimensional character. He is joined on screen by Brendan Gleeson, who plays Ray's partner-in-crime and veteran hitman Ken. As with Farrell, Gleeson manages to be lovable as he steals every scene he is in, striking a winning partnership with Colin Farrell that is among the many reasons why In Bruges is such a delight to watch. But, if I were to choose one major aspect of the film's effectiveness it would have to be its setting, the city of Bruges, Belgium, the quiet and small town these two characters seek refuge to in order to avoid suspicion from the authority after a murder attempt goes awfully wrong. Through his calm, assured, and confident directing style, Martin McDonagh's camera allows the film to flow without a single hitch, resulting in quite the pleasant experience. The film might have been overlooked during its release due to Colin Farrell's dreadful track record but it does more than enough in the acting, writing, and directing departments to warrant special attention, in my eyes. Suffice to say, In Bruges is most definitely an underrated gem which almost all film-lovers will greatly enjoy.

The infamous story of Benjamin Barker, a.k.a Sweeney Todd, who sets up a barber shop down in London which is the basis for a sinister partnership with his fellow tenant, Mrs. Lovett. Based on the hit Broadway musical.
Musicals have long been one of my favorite film genres. With classics like Singin' in the Rain (1952), The Sound of Music (1965), and Mary Poppins (1964) just a few of those movies that have redefined the genre and provided audiences with countless magical moments. The crop of musical films in the last two decades proved to be a mixed bag with only a handful achieving greatness. One of those motion pictures is undoubtedly Tim Burton's Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street. The film is yet another collaboration between Tim Burton and his muse, cinema's chameleon, Johnny Depp. Here, Depp assumes the role of Sweeney Todd, the talented barber who is on a mission to avenge those who have wronged him and his loved ones. Playing the role of Todd's confidante and friend, Mrs. Lovett, Helena Bonham Carter gives yet another memorable performance that easily ranks amongst her best ever roles. The story of the film is set in London during the Victorian era which fits perfectly with Burton's deep fascination with gothic themes and ideas. The result is a visually stunning piece of cinema that superbly showcases the brilliant and witty musical scenes. It remains a mystery to me why such a well-made film seems to be forgotten by many. Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street is without a doubt an underrated gem.
