“Dark Shadows” Review

Dark Shadows (2012)

Tim Burton’s new film ‘Dark Shadows’ is a condensed version of the US TV series ‘Dark Shadows’, aired between 1966 and 1971. The year is 1790, and the plot centres on Barnabos Collins (Johnny Depp), the master of Collinwood Manor, and a rich and powerful son of Joshua and Naomi Collins. Barnabos has the misfortune of crossing his ex-lover Angelique Bouchard (Eva Green), a witch, who turns her witchcraft skill against him, burying him alive, killing her new lover and cursing his whole family. However, in the 1970s, Barnabos is accidentally freed from his tomb only to find his present family in ruins. Barnabos then promises his family the return of their lost fortune.

“Avatar” vs. “FernGully: The Last Rainforest” – A Case of Plagiarism?

 

Although there has been a number of comparisons done recently between ‘Avatar’ (2009) and ‘FernGully’ (1992) (also ‘Pocahontas’ (1995) and ‘Dances with Wolves’ (1990)), I, nevertheless, have decided to take my own turn on the topic and ascertain the similarities between the two movies. In this piece, I will provide some evidence that demonstrate that ‘Avatar’ and ‘FernGully’ are so similar – both in plot lines and style (more so than many other films/stories), that, in my opinion, it was nearly impossible (for James Cameron) not to have in mind ‘FernGully’ when writing ‘Avatar’.

“The Quiet American” Review

The Quiet American (2002)

Directed by Phillip Noyce (‘Patriot Games’ (1992)), ‘The Quiet American’ (2002) is a marvellous adaptation of Graham Greene’s classic novel of the same name. This book-to-film adaptation is so good, it arguably suppresses the majority of previous Graham Greene novel adaptations, and the film is certainly better than the latest Greene novel adaptation ‘Brighton Rock’ (2010). ‘The Quiet American’ truly captures the spirit of the book, and even at times goes beyond the boundaries of the book’s captivating narrative.
