Emily’s Film Reviews
6 Films have been rated or reviewed by Emily.
- From Scotland With Love (2014)
- Anomalisa (2015)
- Was expecting much more from a new Charlie Kaufman film, but this was surprisingly unsatisfying. A beautiful performance from Jennifer Jason Leigh as "Lisa", and the animation is very impressive – but somehow it's not enough.
- DVD $34.95 | Blu-Ray $39.95
- Imitation Game, The (2014)
- The codebreaking machine is named "Christopher" after Alan Turing's childhood friend. This is not true, and should tell you all you need to know about the quality of this film, which even Benedict cannot save. But I will spell it out: utter rubbish.
- Nosferatu (1922)
- The inspiration for "Petyr" in Taika Waititi's "What we do in the Shadows", Nosferatu is still scary and stunning to look at. From crumbling castles to the rat–ridden death ship, we are swept away on an epic adventure, complete with early special eff
- Boyhood (2014)
- Hugely overrated.
- DVD $29.95 | Blu-Ray $34.95
- Metropolis (1926)
- From Chaplin's "Modern Times", to Star Wars and the music video for Queen's "Radio Ga Ga", the huge influence of this film is felt to this day. With stunning visual effects incorporating miniatures, paintings and mirrors, it is a wonder to behold.
$25 $18.75, $19.95 | Blu-Ray $29.92 $19.95
