The Sasquatch Dumpling Gang

by / July 17, 2006 / No Comments

This is a geek-fest, and I mean that in the most entertaining way. From the opening sequence of the main characters “preparing to do battle” to their insatiable love of role-playing games, this is a very funny film that pokes more fun at the characters’ personalities, rather then creating situations which are trying to be [...]

CARS

Animated films have never really interested me. Generally they are childish, predictable and terribly Disney-esque, but at the same time can be strangely entertaining, as the recent Pixar explosion has shown us. Share on Facebook+1 on Google+Post to TumblrTweet this

Classic film review – Equilibrium (2002)

by / May 27, 2006 / No Comments

This is one of my favourite movies ever. I’m fascinated with Nazi Germany, stylish martial arts, Beretta guns, and tight clothing. This movie is my piece of visual paradise. Share on Facebook+1 on Google+Post to TumblrTweet this

Awesome action? Spark? Good dialogue? Well, you won’t find it in this movie. Underworld: Evolution follows Selene (Kate Beckinsale) and Michael (Scott Speedman) through the fight of their lives against, well… EVERYBODY, and I don’t just mean the audience.

Wolf Creek

Wolf Creek

by / May 27, 2006 / No Comments

Not since Passolini’s anti-fascist Salo have I seen so many people walk out of a movie theatre. My date began to squirm as the sick shit started and she left with a half an hour to go, claiming that Wolf Creek was, “too real for me.” This is absolute perversion, dreadful, mind-blowing horror at its [...]

Documentary cinema has changed in the last decade. Gone are the crisp wide shots, and the slow pans that drink in the world. Gone, too, are the clear monotonic commentaries and purposeful subtitles. All has been swept aside, and I feel like I’m coughing and gagging in a dusty gutter, wondering to myself how did [...]

Me, You, and Everyone We Know

by / April 3, 2006 / No Comments

The screening for You, Me and Everyone We Know was packed, and I mean really packed; every seat was filled shoulder-to-shoulder except for the first three rows. It was really nostalgic, like in 1991 when I was five and I watched Beauty and the Beast in a full cinema. I hadn’t experienced that in a [...]
