Reviews

Reviews and criticisms of classic and contemporary literature, movies and art, including the occasional review of the slightly offbeat, fill this section.

 
 The Searchers: Western Deluxe by Asa Butcher
In honour of actress Vera Miles' 80th birthday today, here is a review of John Ford's 'The Searchers' - the film credited with launching her illustrious film career.
 
 An honest rendering of the Middle East conflict? by Dr. Habib Siddiqui
Books written by diplomats are usually very helpful to understand views of the governments that they represented. Martin Indyk's book is an attempt to provide such an account of his diplomatic mission in the Middle East.
 
 Kevin Spacey: Phenomenon by Asa Butcher
It is ten years since I went to watch American Beauty upon its initial cinematic release and last night I watched it again in order to prepare a review in honour of Kevin Spacey's 50th birthday.

 Man on the Moon, mate by Asa Butcher
It may come as a surprise to learn that 'The Dish' is one of the best films documenting the Moon Landing. It is a product of the Australian Film Industry and it is also one of the funniest films you will see this year.
 
 The Godfather: Part II is no mere sequel by Asa Butcher
Watch Francis Ford Coppola's 'The Godfather: Part II' and brace yourself for a three-hour moving piece of art that will leave you breathless from its formidable power, from its dark beauty and from its unbridled brilliance.
 
 The caterpillar with an appetite by Asa Butcher
Today marks the 80th birthday of Eric Carle and 2009 also marks the 40th anniversary of the release of 'The Very Hungry Caterpillar', so what better way to celebrate both landmarks than with a review of the beloved book.
 
 Mission incapable: Angels and Demons by Thanos Kalamidas
The name of the film is 'Angels and Demons' when it should have been Mission Incapable: Vatican!
 
 Track the Trek by Thanos Kalamidas
I don't want to spoil 'Star Trek' for the ones who haven't seen it but the truth is that this film, without hurting Gene Roddenberry's saga, creates new facts or better gave alternatives that can start a new reality for the series.
 
 Living long and still prospering by Asa Butcher
Over the past few years of Ovi magazine I have written about my passion for the Star Trek franchise in all of its many guises, so my childish excitement at the first Trek film in seven years can be of no surprise to regular readers.
 
 A Third Window, beyond Materialistic and Mechanistic Philosophies of Nature by Dr. Emanuel Paparella
An intriguing book is just out challenging the taken for granted dominant paradigm through which modern science sees nature, a paradigm this structured mainly around Newtonian and Darwinian approaches.
