Samsung Bear

This branded video from Samsung has completely made my day! I think of myself as pretty savvy when analysing video marketing efforts from brands, but I was honestly not prepared for the twist in this brilliantly executed production from Samsung. If you haven’t watched the video yet, then I implore ... Read More »

Live Action Toy Story

live action toy story

Just. Wow. Toy Story, perhaps one of the most significant films in the history books has been remade, and for once, not by the uninspired movie studios. No, Live Action Toy Story is the culmination of over two years of work for Toy Story fans Jonason Pauley and Jesse Perrotta. The pair ... Read More »

Life of Pi

Life of Pi Movie Review

Back in 2004 I had just finished Yann Martel’s brilliant novel, Life of Pi. It had been a breathtaking read; a fantastical narrative and a deeply spiritual and philosophical journey that had left me with an infinite number of questions and mixed feelings, as well as a sense of catharsis that ...

Fruit Ninja In Real Life to Dubstep

Fruit Ninja in Real Life

Fruit Ninja in Real Life is an innovative take on the video game adaption fare that is sweeping YouTube producer content. While we’ve seen a proliferation of major video games adapted to ‘real life’ on YouTube (see Assassin’s Creed, Far Cry and Halo) it takes a lot more ingenuity and creativity to ...

Viral Video Movie Posters

These posters of popular viral videos were inspired by the recent design trend of minimalist movie posters, but are more relevant to the interests and content of Retina Burn. Witty, and deeply insightful quotes from the esteemed YouTube community also adorn the posters, reproduced verbatim – obscene language and terrible grammar ...

Jackpot Review

  Jackpot is the second cinematic adaptation to come from writer Jo Nesbø, and after the success, both critically and artistically, of Headhunters it has a lot to live up to and thankfully, it does not disappoint. From the explosive and darkly comic opening that includes “pussy”, a shotgun and some degree ... Read More »

TED | Review

  TED, the debut live action feature from Seth MacFarlane is a shocking, but incredibly funny movie that finally signals an evolution of MacFarlane’s brand of domestic comedy after a slow, lingering decline and eventual stagnation in the animated sphere. In essence, TED is a quirky, modern rethinking of a popular fairytale ... Read More »

The Hunter | Review

The Hunter Movie Review

Daniel Nettheim’s The Hunter is a film that is stripped back to its raw and primal essence, an unashamedly bleak and existential affair that draws the audience through an emotional wringer. With its simple, explanatory title, the movie delivers exactly what it promises; a narrative solely revolving around a hunt. ... Read More »

The Amazing Spider-Man | Review

It’s hard to write objectively of a film, when deep down, you were against the production from the start. This isn’t a swipe at the ridiculous argument that Hollywood has run out of ideas and and has turned to remakes bla bla bla, instead my problem hinges on the semantics with ... Read More »

Killer Joe Review

Killer Joe, William Friedkin’s dark & savage return to the macabre is as unapologetically explicit and direct as its title. It’s a familiar story of greed, money and murder, but Friedkin’s direction of Tracy Lett’s source material fully realises and translates the unrelenting depravity in to a powerful visual performance. At its ... Read More »
