Golden Compass – A Golden Movie!!

GoldenCompassWhat movie!! I can honestly say – this is what we fantasy-lovers have been waiting for! It was absolutely fantastic from start to finish.

The movie starts off with Lyra (Dakota Blue Richards), an orphaned girl, running along to her boarding school after a day spent hard at play with her friends. But there’s something odd about this bunch – they live in a parallel world, one where folks wear their souls on the outside, in the form of a furry companion called a daemon…

“The Eye” (2008)

The EyeA remake of the 2002 Hong Kong film. Sydney Wells is an accomplished, independent, Los Angeles-based concert violinist. She is also blind, and has been so since a childhood tragedy. As our story opens, Sydney undergoes a double corneal transplant, a surgery she has waited her whole life to have, and her sight is restored. After the surgery, neural ophthalmologist Dr. Paul Faulkner helps Sydney with the difficult adjustment, and with the support of her older sister Helen, Sydney learns to see again. But Sydney’s happiness is short-lived as unexplainable shadowy and frightening images start to haunt her. Are they a passing aftermath of her surgery, Sydney’s mind adjusting to sight, a product of her imagination, or something horrifyingly real? As Sydney’s family and friends begin to doubt her sanity, Sydney is soon convinced that her anonymous eye donor has somehow opened the door to a terrifying world only she can now see.

I Am Legend

I am LegendRobert Neville (Will Smith) is a brilliant scientist, but even he could not contain the terrible virus that was unstoppable, incurable, and man-made. Somehow immune, Neville is now the last human survivor in what is left of New York City and maybe the world. For three years, Neville has faithfully sent out daily radio messages, desperate to find any other survivors who might be out there. But he is not alone. Mutant victims of the plague—The Infected—lurk in the shadows…watching Neville’s every move…waiting for him to make a fatal mistake. Perhaps mankind’s last, best hope, Neville is driven by only one remaining mission: to find a way to reverse the effects of the virus using his own immune blood. But he knows he is outnumbered…and quickly running out of time.

NostromoThe Nostromo, a Weyland-Yutani commercial mining vessel, still 10 months from Earth, intercepts an alien signal from a nearby planet, Acheron, and the crew realize they are obligated to investigate under company policy ,or suffer fortiture of all shares. After landing on the planet, three crew members (Captain Dallas, Lambert and Kane), leave the ship to explore the area and find the source of the signal. Meanwhile the Nostromo’s mainframe “Mother” deciphers the message to be a warning, not a distress call. However, it’s too late to stop the away team as they have arrived at the source of the signal – a massive derelict alien spacecraft. Inside they find a sole alien corpse, thousands of years dead, and a cargo hold full of leathery egg-like structures. When Kane disturbs one of the eggs it opens and an organism attaches itself to Kane’s face, immobilizing him.
