Your University’s newspaper has now been distributed around campus – but what, I wonder, is the theme for The Rabbit Film Section this week?

The Oscars

You will have the delights to read all of our finest content from our best writers. There’s an article on James Bond, an insight in to the people behind the camera, and some reviews of some of the films which are up for Oscar nominations/.

For any film fan, The Oscars are the highlight of the year, a culmination of some of the years biggest and best films, a  chance to recognise some of the best talent around. Of course, for everyone else there is the element of style, glamour and a chance to see their favourite star getting the recognition they deserve.

The Oscars are announced on the 24th February 2013.

Words From The Editor

Words by Naomi Jeffreys

We have to realise what we are and what we may well become. Students studying at University, not all of us are lazy, not all of us go out every night. Sometimes we are misunderstood, we work hard, and often we use University as a stepping stone to the start of our adult lives.

Of course, the Arts is a way in which we can perform to our expectations and perform for others.

The main thing to remember, is to always remain true to who you are. Absolute honesty can take us very far, in life and in our view of ourselves as human beings.

There is no link to film in this post, because, this is about reality not about something displayed on the big screen.

Remain true to who you are and all of your dreams may come true.

“And you’re listening to that song and that drive with the people you love most in this world. And in this moment I swear, we are infinite.” The Perks of Being a Wallflower

Happenstance means that I have recently been a regular at the Odeon. Is it because of the salty popcorn? The sugary sweets? Or is it because of the brilliant films which have recently been shown? Although I would like to say the former, it is the latter.

2012 is a fantastic year for Film, whether it is cinema which is showcasing British talent, ‘My Brother the Devil’, or a big budget film such as ‘Skyfall’, or even animation from across the Pond which is pushing boundaries once again in ‘Paranorman’.

The medium of film has changed and developed throughout time. Including the way we view it, with modern society as it is nowadays, with tablets, smart phones and laptops, it couldn’t be easier to view our favourite films at the touch of a button.

But, there is something quite exciting and quite rare nowadays to go to the movies. It can feel like such a treat, perhaps because of the high prices, or because there is something fun about being plunged in to darkness, with a room full of strangers, eating salty food and sweets. Often with friends, or loved ones. What better way to experience a film?

So, this week we are dealing with films which are current, of the now, of the moment. The Rabbit Film Section will be serving you what is hot right now in your local cinema. So, if you agree with our team of writers, or even if you disagree. Then get down to your local cinema and enjoy being in the cinema. Take a break from essays and reading, stats and calculations. Just enjoy the film.

I would like to thank The Rabbit Film Section’s dedicated team of writers, who’s enthusiasm never fails, dedication never wavers and who always ensure that the section is chock full of interesting content. So thank you, keep up the good work.
