Film Club: Toy Story

The Film Club gang is back with a vengeance! Kieran picked a pretty excellent film this time around. I mean, how could you ever go wrong with Toy Story. Go and see what everybody thought!

what about the twinkie?

Toy-Story

Another month and another edition of Film Club. This months Film Club choice was down to myself and I wanted to choose something slightly different. With that it occurred to me that we have not yet covered an animated film and I wanted to be the first to do so. A few choices went through my mind before choosing, but in the end it just had to be Pixar’s first foray into motion pictures; Toy Story.

I hope you like my pick and enjoy reading what everyone else has to say on the film.

For this months edition of Film Club, new member Eric from the IPC was forced into picking our film for July. Keeping to type, Eric chose something trashy and full of debauchery, Porky’s. Below are his reasons for picking Porky’s followed by everyone’s thoughts on the cult comedy.

I’ve been reading these group posts for a while now and when Kieron asked me to join the club, it came with a debt – I had to choose the movie for this month. I went and looked at all of the older films they’ve talked about and thought I might lighten it up a bit, but I was very nervous being the new guy and choosing something not…. “prolific” so to speak…. I mean, most of what I write about at my place is not prolific whatsoever and it’s mostly crap movies and even crappier writing.

So…. having received my…

Film Club: Snowpiercer

The good ol’ Film Club gang got together to discuss Snowpiercer–a film that has received a lot of acclaim, but it’s definitely not everyone’s cup of tea. How did our little group feel about it? Check out this post to see!

Pans-Labyrinth-Giveaway-2

Despite a few delays, Film Club has returned for April with a film that has perhaps tested a few members in regards to watching something outside of their comfort zone. Pan’s Labyrinth is the Spanish language fairytale from director Guillermo del Toro, and is one of the more unique films that Film Club has had the pleasure of reviewing.

This months film was chosen by Cara from Silver Screen Serenade. As always, Cara’s reason for choosing this months film are listed below, followed by each members thoughts. Enjoy.

When Kieron asked me about picking a film for this month’s Film Club, I was at first a little overwhelmed. I had my choice of all of the movies. ALL OF THEM. Like, woah. But I thought things over, and I narrowed it down to films that really had an impact on me, then films that I haven’t had a chance to…

Film Club returns for March with a film that many of you may not have heard of. The Rose, from 1979, stars Bette Midler as the title character in a film that is the definition of sex, drugs and rock & roll. The IMDb has this synopsis for us: “The tragic life of a self-destructive female rock star who struggles to deal with the constant pressures of her career and the demands of her ruthless business manager.”

The Rose was chosen by the lovely Reut of The Sweet Archive. Below are her reasons for choosing the film, followed by each members thoughts on the film.

The reason I chose The Rose for this month’s Film Club is very simple. The Rose is a classic film. I’m into classic films. I’m also into music, so… you do the math. I’ve heard plenty of good things about The Rose and know that…
