The Beach

Another world!

(Edit) 10/02/2010

I'd heard about this film but never actually got around to watching it until now. And since it was out in 2000 I should have watched it by now. But 10 years on and i'm regretting not watching it sooner!

Danny Boyle did a fantastic job of taking you to another world almost but still making it believable. The Beach focuses on a man's journey to something beyond belief. I thought DiCaprio's performance was one of the best I've seen by him. He held the film the entire time and I couldn't take my eyes of the screen.

Fantastic casting. Great cinematography. A must see for Danny Boyle fans.

Man on Wire

Phenomenal!!

(Edit) 07/02/2010

I didn't know what to expect when renting this film. I heard great reviews from it and thought I would give it a go. I've watched everything and anything to do with the Twin Towers, and I guess that's what swayed me a little to renting this. However I was instantly captured and put into this wonderful story.

This film follows the undeniable amount of planning that Philippe Petit put into his dream. From a young age, he'd been taking his passion to the next level. The film is inspiring, despite the breaking of the law, it's jaw dropping to watch and impossible to look away when Petit is dancing around on a single piece of wire.

Brilliant archival footage and photographs. The reconstructions were also really helpful in picturing the whole story from Petit's point of view.
