Movies and Tea



Originally set to adapt the whole Millenium trilogy we would sadly be left with a what if as Fincher’s english language adaptation of the book fell short of the studios expectations.

We look at the film and try to find out what went wrong as Daniel Craig’s Mikael Blomkvist, a disgraced journalist, teams up with Lisbeth Salander, a computer hacker, to solve the mystery of a woman who has been missing for forty years only to soon discover much darker secrets being hidden by the family.

The next episode of Movies and Tea is here as we move forward to the next movie in David Fincher’s films and discuss The Social Network. Head on over to Movies and Tea to give it a listen!

Movies and Tea



While the idea of making a movie about Facebook seems like the kind of fodder best suited for a TV movie, in the hands of Fincher while working from a script by Aarron Sorkin it arguably became one of the best films of the last decade.

Here Fincher spins a tale of sucess, greed, envy and betryal. But then you don’t get to 500 millions friends without making a few enemies

Movies and Tea #29 – Hulk

The next Movies and Tea episode is live as we continue through Ang Lee’s filmography of Hulk! Head over to Movies and Tea to give it a listen and share your thoughts with us!

Movies and Tea

As we reach the halfway point for our Ang Lee filmography re-evaulation we come to Hulk which saw Lee choosing to follow up his critically acclaimed and genre reviving Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon with a comic book movie. Certainly this was a unique choice despite the fact he’s never been restricted to any perticular genre and certainly it was this unrestricted world view that he brough to his unique adaptation of the popular Marvel character.

Released before the superhero boom, here his sins of the father style approach to the Hulk origin story brought a unique spin on the character but with most comic book movies having largely forgotten this adaptation, was it ahead of it’s time or just plain missing the mark?
