Opinion Battles Round 14 Favourite Tom Hanks Role

Round 14 is here!
Well, its been around for a while. It just slipped past me between all the event coverage. Regardless, this time we’re looking at our Favorite Tom Hanks Role.
I’m going to confess that Tom Hanks is a great actor and I remember him being fantastic but I can never pinpoint anything other than Cast Away and voice for Toy Story. I felt like I was cheating by choosing Tom Hanks but apparently, I’m not alone in the love and appreciation for his role in a great Pixar animated film.

Opinion Battles Round 14

Favourite Tom Hanks Role

Tom Hanks is one of the iconic actors of the modern era, two Oscar wins to his name as well as coming off as one of the nicest men in Hollywood. He has grown up too soon, fallen in love with Meg Ryan three times, gone into space, been left on an island and even saved a plane for of people after saving Matt Damon. The question is what the role we enjoy watching the most from him.

Favourite Performance in a Horror Movie

Horror is a genre that often gets over looked when it comes to award season but it is easy to see just how good certain stars get plenty of chances to return to the genre in the future. Except for Silence of the Lambs who did clean up the Oscars we have had some brilliant performance in recent years.

Opinion Battles Round 11 Which Film Should Never Have Had a Sequel?

Round 11 of Opinion Battles is upon us! This time’s task is to share which films we thought should never have had a sequel. I have to say this did take a little brainstorming to do, however, I’m pretty confident about my choice. What might not be a horrible standalone movie was also not necessary and yes, I’m talking about 300: Rise of the Empire. It had a lot of 300’s tone but lacked so much in the charm in fact just felt like a meaningless story but done in a much less appealing way.

Some fantastic choices here as well. Head on over and check them out and drop a vote on which selection agree with the most!

Which Film Should Never Have Had a Sequel?

We as an audience can find ourselves sitting through endless sequels, prequels and remakes, some we enjoyed others we find ourselves wondering why they made another film in the first place at all. We are going to be looking at the films that should have remained stand-alone movies because the sequels have only ever eaten into the reputation of what was a great film.

Favourite Asian Language Film

Asia has given us plenty of brilliant films many have given the Western world some of the most popular films in film history. We have Studio Ghibli which can battle Disney for stunning animated movies, we have also had horror films which have redefined the genre. There is also Bollywood which is easily just as profitable as Hollywood.

Fantasia Festival: Train to Busan (2016)

Its not a common occurrence for me to repost a blog but the past weekend, we rewatched Train to Busan and took a moment to look over the review I wrote when I saw it at Fantasia Festival last summer. It was absolutely fantastic in the second viewing with the same thrills and actually, I’m thinking its even more perfect the second time around. A must-see zombie film if you haven’t seen it yet!

Tranquil Dreams

Continuing with a incredibly final showdown in the second consecutive day at Fantasia starts with a late morning screening of the North American premiere of Korean zombie film, Train to Busan. Those of you who know me know that I enjoy zombie films a lot. In fact, they are almost always entertaining to watch. Train to Busan caught our attention immediately and we had to add it into our rundown no matter what. Even if it meant going for the late screening the night before and waking up early to see this, not to mention standing under the scorching morning sun which was nearing 30 degrees Celsius. It was not pleasant but in our hearts, we believed that it would be worth it.

Train to Busan (2016)
