BBC Alice in Wonderland DVD Review

BBC Alice in Wonderland DVD Review

Entertainment
Fans of the book who are looking for a treat in watching a version filled with notable British comedians and dramatists will be sorely let down, when watching this mess of a project. If anything, it is has been widely reported that director Jonathan Miller refused to have any of the supporting characters in animal costumes, as it would be silly to have such actors don their respective character's outfits, thus lessening the cachet of his valued telecast. Alas, by doing so, Miller creates a real mess of a narrative for anyone unfamiliar with either the book or Disney's more popular animated classic from 1951. All the actors are dressed in Victorian attire, leading viewers to question exactly who they are and their relationship to Alice. Add to this the fact that in most scenes you...

Movie Review: Billy Wilder’s The Fortune Cookie

Movies
Billy Wilder’s best films are dominated by a cold, unforgiving eye for the more venal realities of American life. His movies comprise a cinematic hall of fame for some of the most wondrously ill-spirited pictures ever made. Here we will review about his 1996 movie The Fortune Cookie.

Walter Matthau took the supporting actor Oscar for Willie, the role that marked his first on-screen pairing with Lemmon. Willie, the prototypical shyster lawyer, wants Harry to fake a much more ...

The game has a long tutorial and so even without previous experience of playing game of similar nature one can play it easily and understand how things work. P...

The Project Cars PC Version Review

Gaming
The Project Cars is a much respectable and gorgeous game from the stable of Bandai Namco. It is equipped with substantial amount of tuning depth. The Likes Dust, raindrops and sunbeams are really the best things to like. Graphics are awesome and the landscapes are in details. It is to take note that dynamic reflections in the hood of care are too mesmerizing. The rain changes lighting and reflection on the car and the drops splashes beautifully and run on the whindshield. More to these, the sun looks different on a cloudy day compared to the foggy day. The scattered sunbeams look awesome and the late-afternoon sun in Dubai is simply blinding. The Dislikes The engine noises of the cars are so insistent and so grating. It is louder if compared to the pit radio of even t...
