For me, my favourite superheroes end up being The Big Three (Batman, Superman, Spider-Man) and then the rest get to fight for my attention at the level just below. I’ve always loved The Incredible Hulk, because I grew up with the TV show that I enjoyed as a young boy, and I read a few [...]May 23rd, 2013 | Film Reviews | Read More
Curandero – a traditional Native American healer or shaman in Latin America, who is dedicated to curing physical or spiritual illnesses. So near and yet so far. Those were my feelings towards Eduardo Rodriguez’s feature length debut (co-written by one Robert Rodriguez) , a Mexican horror/action...May 22nd, 2013 | DVD Reviews | Read More
Stranded with her younger siblings after their Nazi parents are imprisoned, Lore leads the remains of her family across war-torn Germany in 1945. To survive the children must reach their Grandmother’s house in the North but amidst the chaos of a defeated nation, Lore meet a young Jewish refugee...May 22nd, 2013 | Comps & Puzzles | Read More
It never ceases to amaze me that no matter how many horror films I have watched (and we’re talking a fair few here), something always appears which manages to shock me – though not always in the way intended. It increasingly seems that new films which fall with the remit of the horror genre...May 21st, 2013 | Film Reviews | Read More
The Hit is a 1984 British crime drama featuring Tim Roth’s debut movie performance, playing a hot headed accomplice to John Hurt’s world weary hitman. Now, nearly thirty years later, Roth’s debut role is reversed in another British crime drama, as he takes on the role of Roy, a professional...May 21st, 2013 | DVD Reviews | Read More
Vehicle 19 is an interesting film. It’s not entirely successful, but it tries to do something a bit different from so many other action thrillers. For a start, it’s almost entirely set in the titular vehicle. Paul Walker stars as Michael Woods, according to the accompanying publicity blurb...May 20th, 2013 | DVD Reviews | Read More
When the J.J. Abrams directed Star Trek was released in 2009 it did the seemingly impossible and breathed new life into a film franchise that had well and truly run its course. With no new Star Trek series on TV there seemed to be little hope of further big screen releases. However, in giving the [...]May 20th, 2013 | Film Reviews | Read More
I’m sure that those responsible for marketing 21 & Over will assume that those who enjoyed Project X will also end up liking this. They would be wrong. I really liked Project X but disliked this movie, for reasons that I’ll describer later in this review. The plot is simplicity itself....May 20th, 2013 | Film Reviews | Read More
There are people, your correspondent among them, who have sat through the whole of Rob Reiner’s sublime This is Spinal Tap without ever twigging that it is a spoof. In the theatre where I have just returned from watching Stefan Ruzowitzky’s brilliant Coen Brothers parody Deadfall there were...May 17th, 2013 | Film Reviews | Read More
As much as I love The Blair Witch Project, it has a lot to answer for. While it wasn’t the first found footage movie, with Cannibal Holocaust predating it by nearly two decades, it certainly popularised the subgenre. The huge profits and seeming ease of production sending a thousand (mostly inept)...May 17th, 2013 | DVD Reviews | Read More
