The Immortal Blade

Film Review: The Immortal Blade

It’s not going to be for everyone, but like the best of cult movies, it’s not supposed to be. See it slash the silver screen, and then for thousands of viewings at home, it will lead to your own redemption.

Film Review: Brakes

On a scrap of paper ‘Brakes’ (2016) by first time director Mercedes Grower (who also wrote it) is a brilliant idea, and to the greater extent it really works. As the description goes, it’s an improv-based dark comedy set in London.

Film Review: A Matter Of Life And Death

As is much and repeatedly written, we are indeed living in awful times being led on a merry dance of self serving insanity by those who we believe are in charge. Yet said leaders clearly haven’t a clue about anything but their pension preservation. But hey! At least there is some stunning television series and movies to distract us from the chaos that seems to permeate everything.

Film Review: The Florida Project

Baker has taken the winning ingredients of ‘Tangerine’ and tenderly marinated his next serving, the wonderful ‘The Florida Project’ (2017) with all the truths, integrity, honesty and non judgmental presentation of a world that’s seemingly hidden, yet right in front of us for those that can see.

Film Review: Eat Locals on DVD from 30th October

Jason Flemyng’s directorial debut ‘Eat Locals’ is an after-dark tale of vampires, the army and Annette Crosbie from ‘One Foot in the Grave ‘brandishing a serious piece of weaponry to deadly effect.

Film Review: Detroit

Swapping John Boorman’s ‘Deliverance’ (1972) canoe for a 60s gas guzzling road boat and steering us into Red Neck Hell City, Kathryn Bigelow has skilfully captured what is in one context an extremely violent (is there any other kind in that Nation’s history) period of social unrest due to profound and endemic racism, that is both potent and tragically prescient being what transpires on screen could be a live stream from many parts of ‘modern’ America today

Film Review: Logan Lucky

Sliding in as smooth as a pumped, pimped and tricked out American muscle drifting car, we have the latest frivolous and joyous delight that is Steven Soderbergh’s ‘Logan Lucky’ (2017).

Film Review: Free Fire

Strutting straight into the room, or in this case a disused warehouse, like the love child of Zoolander and John Wick’s 1970s free lovin’, even freer shootin’ moustached and side burned dad, we have incredible polyester sights and bullet sounds of Ben Wheatley’s latest cinematic dark comedy gem ‘Free Fire’ (2016).
