Blog: All Things Film – Headrush (2003) Reviewed

Sometimes just sometimes you have one of those days where NOTHING goes right. This day was one of those.  Cannes.  It was hot (properly hot in the mid 30’s), I’d dressed in jeans and not shorts meaning I was sweating like innocent man on death row.  Every person we’d spoken to had given us the bums rush and punting our current film around buyers we’d ...

Blog: Dallas Buyers Club – A Quick Capsule Review

Phil’s Quick Capsule Review: It wasn’t that long along that Matthew McConaughey’s name above a film poster meant piss poor romantic comedy.  No more.  Dallas Buyers Club sees McConaughey not just at his best but marking himself out as one of the best actors working today and in a film that also included a career best performance from Jared Leto that’s saying something.  Dallas ...

Blog: All Things Film – Warrioress Review

In a world where two forces come together and do battle, only the honest true survivor will win. No, I am not referring to the warring factions in writer/director Ross Boyask’s latest fight fest but, rather, my close friendship to him versus what I think of his film. I know Mr. Boyask (who frequents these here reviews) is known to ... Read More »

Review: Gasland (DVD/BR)

The Review:  I have always been a big fan of documentaries.   From films like Full Title Boogie & The Hamster Factor about the process of filmmaking to others like Fahrenheit 911 & Inside Job than inform political & social economical movements or events… give me a good documentary and I am a happy man I remember at Cannes a few year’s back when ...

Lovelace: A Quick Capsule Review

Phil’s Quick Capsule Review: Lovelace isn’t Boogie Nights. In fact it’s only just a step up from a Hallmark movie of the week, which is a shame because at it’s core is a solid and often brave performance from Amanda Seyfried but she’s let down by a one sided story, flat direction and a sense of always trying to be more ...

Review: Oldboy 2013 (DVD/BR)

The Review: This unnecessary remake stars Josh Brolin as a man locked away for twenty years with seemingly no reason, before being released and hooking up with a nurse to find out why the perpetrators imprisoned him. If you’ve seen the original, then you know the rest – and you know this remake. The only practically new thing Spike Lee does ... Read More »
