“We’re just one big happy family… except for a little incest and psychosis.” The above line of dialogue, as amusing as it is twisted, perfectly sums up this little gem of a movie. A horror that covers familiar ground – the standard hero who may be paranoid, but that doesn’t...December 13th, 2013 | Film Reviews | Read More
Tootsie is an effective comedy that seems very simple while walking a tightrope. The fact that it holds up today, and still feels relevant in many ways, is both a testament to how well put together it is and how difficult it has been to remove the insidious shadow of sexism from our society. Dustin […]December 12th, 2013 | Film Reviews | Read More
You can tell whether a story is good by its ability to engage the reader from the beginning to end. When it comes to films of recent times, it is the same conundrum with the Lord of the Rings trilogy; each outing needs to be as good, or better, than the previous film to continue […]December 11th, 2013 | Feature, Film Reviews | Read More
It’s almost impossible to hate E.T. The Textra-Terrestrial, isn’t it? Well, that’s what I have thought for years and years. Of course, I’d never watched the film in its entirety since that day that saw me leaving a cinema in tears, when I was seven or eight years old. When he...December 11th, 2013 | Film Reviews | Read More
When I got on the internet back in 1995, at the still-tender age of 23, one of the first things I encountered there was conspiracy theories. Being new to these ideas I was quite taken with them at first, and corresponded at length with conspiracy proponents, always ending up asking them the obvious question:...December 10th, 2013 | DVD Reviews | Read More
An action comedy with a dollop of the supernatural added to it, The Golden Child is a film that’s hard to dislike, if you’re an Eddie Murphy fan. It is, however, one of his earliest films to already show signs of what would become his undoing. The opening credits show that this was made in...December 10th, 2013 | Film Reviews | Read More
Oh, what a treat it would be to be young again. To be so easily entertained by anything kid-friendly that was churned out by Disney and to enjoy spending time with characters that older people might class as annoying. I used to love Flight Of The Navigator. I’m sure I’m not the only one....December 9th, 2013 | Film Reviews | Read More
This would-be documentary involving skateboarders is an interesting piece of work. Rather than have the same sombre tones of typical historical pieces, filmmaker Marten Persiel focuses his energies in chronicling the societal difficulties of 1980’s Germany through something a bit more…radical....December 9th, 2013 | Film Reviews | Read More
It was only when I came to compile this list that I realised just how many of my favourite movies fall into the ‘80s comedy’ bracket. The decade was an extremely strong one for comedies with the likes of Murray, Akroyd and Martin all squarely in their pomp. There are numerous notable big hitters...December 9th, 2013 | Feature, Top Ten | Read More
Francois Ozon’s Jeune et Jolie is the portrait of a young schoolgirl from a well to do middle-class background and her coming-of-age into adolescence in modern day Paris. The film left me with a lot of questions but very few answers and it took me a while to get my head around what was actually...December 9th, 2013 | Film Reviews | Read More
