Ricky D’s 50 Favourite Films of 2012 (Part One)

22 December 2012 4:26 PM, PST | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

2012 wasn’t a bad year for movies. It was actually a great year. The problem is, the movies we were most anticipating, specifically the Hollywood blockbusters like Prometheus and The Hobbit, didn’t live up to our expectations. With that said I still managed to make a list of 50 films I loved. Maybe I just have bad taste or maybe I just love movies but the most time consuming factor when making this list was sitting down and deciding what makes the cut and what doesn’t. Even with 50 films listed below, I found it hard to not include movies like Frankenweenie, The Loneliest Planet, Footnote, Compliance, Jiro Dreams of Sushi, Ai Weiwei: Never Sorry, and Searching For Sugar Man. Come to think of it, every film featured on our list of best documentaries could have easily snuck into this list. I haven’t seen everything of course. Below is »

Film Review: 'Jackpot'

8 August 2012 2:00 AM, PDT | CineVue | See recent CineVue news »

★★☆☆☆ Magnus Martens' Jackpot (Arme Riddere, 2011) marks the latest cinematic excursion of Norwegian novelist Jo Nesbø. Based on an original story penned purposely for the screen, yet similar in both tone and texture to Morten Tyldum's Headhunters (Hodejegerne, 2011), Martens' dark comedy of errors is yet another example of the Scandinavian film industry's strong ongoing relationship with the crime genre.

2012: The Best Movies of May

31 May 2012 12:27 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

2012 promises to be a fantastic year in cinema. Not too long ago, we posted a list of thirty of our most anticipated films of 2012, and so I decided I would keep track of my favourite films released each month. Here are my three favorite films released in May.

1- Laurence Anyways

Directed by Xavier Dolan

Screenplay by Xavier Dolan

Xavier Dolan reveals a romantic, albeit tragic side, in Laurence Anyways, a highly unconventional romance that shows the young filmmaker has matured since his sophomore effort, Les Amours Imaginaire. Putting aside the last hour of the pic, a gargantuan mess that stretches what seems like a lifetime – the first 90 minutes is by far his best work yet, proving that confidence and ambition are not something Dolan lacks.

Dolan’s imagery and dialogue is strong, with a soundtrack of handpicked 80′s and 90′s hits that service many of the film’s best »

As any die-hard thriller lover will tell you, Jo Nesbo is a pretty big deal. Heralded as the next Stieg Larsson years ago, only now are his novels being turned into films, notably 2008's Headhunters, or to use its original name, Hodejegerne.Released in his homeland of Norway and bought up by 50 different countries, Headhunters is now set to hit British shores, with a release date set for April 6.Starring Aksel Hennie in the lead role of Roger Brown, the film tells the tale of a successful headhunter / art thief who meets his match when he steals a painting from a former mercenary, Clas Greve (Nikolaj Coster-Waldau) - a man he's also seeking to set up as the head of a firm.Today we've got a poster for you to enjoy, and without any further ado, here it is.And before you ask, yes, yes indeed, it's already being lined up for a Hollywood remake. »
