Articles by: Luke
I am a student studying English and Drama, hoping to become a screenwriter. Therefore, I am interested in films, especially criticising the rubbish ones, defending the misjudged ones and praising the excellent ones. For more articles by me on movies and other stuff (video games, music, TV), then check out my new site www.oracleoffilm.com - I want to thank Moonproject for helping me get to grips with article-writing and give me the confidence to set this site up. You have been great.

Who Was The Best Hulk?

Marvel has come a long way over the last few decades, arguably none more so than The Incredible Hulk. The Hulk is a tough character to translate into a film, seeing as he is little more than a rampaging monster. Sure, there is a Jekyll and Hyde element to the […]

Liam Neeson’s Top 5 Film Roles

Liam Neeson appears to be an actor who is drastically reinventing himself. He used to be known for his relaxed, mentor roles (see Kingdom of Heaven), but now he appears to be redefining our idea of the modern-day action hero, making 60 the new 30, as he takes on action heroes like […]

3 Superhero Characters that the Film Improved

Before I begin, this article is purely subjective. I understand that the characters I use as examples have a wide fan base, but this is purely a personal stance. The point I am trying to convey is that the films have saved Marvel by bringing it into the cinema and […]

A Post-Modernist Reading of ‘The Cabin in the Woods’

So, for this article I thought I would try something a little different. Stop me if I am going off on a tangent. I’ve just finished a semester at University studying postmodernist literature, which, in a nutshell, is a genre of fiction that thinks outside the box, experimenting with the […]

3 Film Characters (of 2012) Who Failed at their Jobs

Defending The Resident Evil Films

My housemate hates the Resident Evil films. He thinks the storylines are lazy, the characters two-dimensional and the zombies not scary in the slightest. However, personally, I enjoy them, despite acknowledging them as films that will probably never win an Oscar. So I’ve dedicated my article this week to defending […]
