Great Expectations is a passionate coming of age tale about a working class orphan boy named Pip. He is a boy that desires nothing more than to live out his ‘great expectations’ and transit from rags to riches into a wealthy gentleman. After meeting the tragic Miss Havisham who, since she was jilted at the alter, remains clad in her dusty, withering wedding dress, Pip is provided with a great sum of wealth from a mysterious benefactor. In an attempt to make himself an appropriate suitor for Estella, (Miss Havisham’s ward who Pip has fallen irrevocably in love with), Pip exploits the opportunity without a second thought. The tale transforms into an intelligent examination of class divide and questions the power of money in changing our fate.

Far from a typical Dickensian tale of a gentle orphan boy who finds his happy ever after, Great Expectations brings to light the darker side…

     Frankenweenie is a sparky little tale telling the story of Victor Frankenstein, a typical Burtonesque protagonist, and his loveable pet dog, Sparky. After the playful pooch falls prey to a fatal accident, leaving him dead and buried on top of a sinister hill, Victor attempts to reanimate his corpse in typical Frankenstein fashion, turning the charming children’s story into another brilliant Burton genre mashup of horror, comedy, fantasy and science fiction.

Unlike Burton’s previous few films, Frankenweenie returns to his roots of a love for Hammer House horror movies, and doing so in what can only be described as an elegant, nightmarish encounter with the  hauntingly imaginative mind of Tim Burton. The German Expressionist elements are boldly evident throughout the film, from the stark contrasts in lighting, to the ghoulish shadows reminiscent of F.W. Murnau’s Nosferatu (1922), extending to the characters clad in Expressionist fashion. Similarly, Frankenweenie is…

Follow my Film-based Twitter/blog/facebook account :D

Okay, so as I’m not focusing so much on this blog anymore, as I have said previously, I have a Film Tumblr that I just created which you can visit (and follow!!) here. I apologise for anyone who found the link to be broken on the previous post; I recently changed the name and only just updated it on here.

On my film tumblr you will find any news relating to the Film industry, links to my published articles, and many photos and gif sets of films from the silent era up until the present day.

You can also visit my film-based Twitter here, and you can follow my film-based facebook here.

I would appreciate any new followers in supporting me whilst I build up my reputation in writing about and researching film. I also love discovering new film blogs, so if you have one, or know of one, or even a film twitter or facebook, then send me a comment and I’ll check it out and follow :-)

I shall also be creating a new WordPress especially for Film soon, and will be posting the link soon :-)

My new film blog :D

Hi guys, I have made a Tumblr specifically for Film and Movies :D I’m kind of building up my whole delving into film theory/research and although a Tumblr doesn’t do that so much, I thought it would be a cool place to post links to my articles, etc, and also reblog cool gif sets/photo stills from films.

For any of you who have a Tumblr account, you can follow me here.

If you have a film tumblr, or even a film-based wordpress account, (or post a lot of things to do with films), then follow me and send me a message saying you post a lot of film stuff, etc, and I’ll check your blog out as I’m looking for blogs to follow to repost cool film things :D

I’ll be making a new wordpress account soon for Film stuff which I will post a link to on here when I do. I don’t really have the time to maintain this blog anymore because I just spend so much time studying/watching films/reading, etc. I thought a Film blog would be better because I am seriously considering a career in Film research, etc and think it would be cool to kind of write mini essays about film, maybe throw in some movie/dvd reviews, articles, etc. So I will keep you guys updated on that.

Lastly, I’d just like to say an amazing thank you to all of my followers and all those people who keep on visiting my blog each day. The amount of views/comments/feedback etc I receive is amazing. I genuinely have no idea why you guys keep on visiting my blog but I love you all for it, so thank you :D

Check out my film tumblr anyway and I hope to see you guys on there and my new film WordPress blog soon!!!

What is Germany Expressionism? German Expressionism refers to a number of creative  movements happening in Germany, originating before the War (WWI), and this movement really reached its peak during the 1920s after the war. This movement, in relation to this blog post, deals directly with film. During the period right after WWI, Germany was experiencing an economic depression, and filmmakers could not make extremely high budget and lavish films, so they had to be creative and therefore expressionist. Their films, during this time, is characterized by symbolism and experimentation.

When one thinks of German Expressionism, one usually thinks of Robert Wiene’s The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari. The story is told in the point of view of Francis, who visits a carnival earlier the film and sees Caligari and Cesare. Francis later investigates these murders… however, the twist in the end is that Francis is imagining the whole thing, and…
