Dolittle - review

Image
Dolittle toys around with a familiar property and goes within a hair's breadth of justifying the experience. Given it’s chock-full of attempted wonder and ladle after ladle of animal gags, pretty much ensures younger audiences should have a blast with it. For the oldies in the audience, it’s marred by some questionable editing and obvious signs of post-production tinkering.
I’m ride or die for Rex Harrison as Doctor Dolittle; but I’m far from kicking off a #notmydr campaign for this iteration. Tony Stark does a passable job of inventing a newish character, with its own quirks and sense of self. Spurred on by a broken heart, Dolittle is forced to confront demons from his past, whilst letting in the outside world to ensure his future. In fairness there is little territory left to explore within such character arcs, but this does what it can to keep it fresh.
For any version of a Dr Dolittle story there obviously needs to be those cute and cuddly critters to fall in love with. Doli…

Stu’s New Years Resolution: Filling Director Blindspots

Image
For 2020, my goal each month is to knock off four titles from a prominent director that I’ve never caught before. Now before you judge me for my shameful list, I openly acknowledge that I’ve got way too many important films to still see. We can’t see them all, but it’s fun to have a crack at ticking off some of the big boppers. A daunting challenge to say the least. I do apologise that there aren’t any female directors on my list, it’s because I predominantly focused on the 40s - 70s when listing my shame and thus my list was skewed towards the boys. By no means throwing shade at female directors. I’d love to know what film you’re most ashamed of for not seeing. I've broken down the titles month-by-month and praying I can keep going throughout the year, there's some remarkable films in there. Feel free to sound off in the comments below or come over and play on our Facebook page.

Stu's Favourite Films of 2019

Image
With 2019 winding down, film fans everywhere get to engage in the annual pointless exercise which is compiling our top films of the year lists. Oh the stress! What if we put something at 3 instead of 7?! What about this or that?! You put that there?! YOU MONSTER!! You get the idea.
Now my only rule when compiling any end of year list is that these are just my favourite films. I’m not saying they’re the “best” of the year by any means. These are the films I can’t stop thinking about, even long after I caught them. Some linger longer than others, so that’s basically how I rank them.

My biggest regret is that i didn't see enough foreign films this year. I kind of dropped the ball on world cinema despite the fact four non-english films are in my top 10.
I’d really love to hear what your favourite films of the year were. Remember there’s no right or wrong in this game. All that matters is your relationship with the films you’re consuming. We all have no idea as much as each other
