Video review of Invaders from Mars by Bharathi and Shafi

This is a video review that I and Shafi did on Invaders from Mars, we felt that doing a video review as oppose to a written review would allow us to put across our points more effectively as we are able to display scenes on top of our speech. I have a lot of respect for this film and am not in any way mocking it as it is obviously an inspiration to the film industry, I am more providing a vision of how I saw it, having not seen classic movies like this before and having mostly seen modernised versions of similar films. When I commented on how "you're not allowed to hit a kid round the face nowadays" I understand that if anything, the BBFC has gotten less strict on film certification with people such as Sue Clark of the BBFC saying "times shift and attitudes change, but what was problematic then, is not problematic now". Try and stay awake through the whole video and remember that I'm not mocking the film in any way, if anyone believes that I am, please express your opinion so I can consider taking it down. Thanks to Shafi for helping to provide in depth analysis on the film as well as moral support.

  1. Again - very charming, very engaging and you made me LAUGH!!! I love this approach to archiving your thoughts... I'm going to get your classmates to take a look... nice cutting too and your inserts made me smile - liked the cross-referencing with the other movie too - and you're right - the new movies owe a big debt to the old movies - which is why I show them to you.

    Ps - I agree with you, Bharathi! :-)

  4. I always wear make-up when I sleep, gives me an extra edge if I need to confront a burglar (You've got to take pre-cautions living in Chatham)

    I thought it was a really nice way of reviewing the movie, you better do another one.
