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: 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: The Motel Life (Cinema)

The Review: I love it when the title of a film aptly sums up precisely how thrilling and entertaining the experience of sitting through it is like. Take The terminator, for examples, or perhaps even Twelve Angry Men (and RoboCop) – those two titles tell you what’s going to happen; gear you up for a giddy ride. Then there’s shite like ...

Review: How To Make Money Selling Drugs (DVD/BR)

The Review: Matthew Cooke, editor of Amy Berg’s incredible Deliver Us From Evil writes and directs this “does exactly what it says on the tin” expose that explores how any ordinary civilian can make it in the drug game. At first – and for the majority of the run time – the film dresses itself up as levels of a video ... Read More »

Review: Bad Grandpa (DVD/BR)

The Review:  Wednesday night, 2-for-1, Kevin Bacon adverts, 25 minutes of commercials, lights dim down (small black mark on the centre of the screen which you can choose have distract you, especially if the picture is white) and – boom – Bad Grandpa’s first reel rolls and there’s an ei9ght year-old kid in a doctor’s waiting room telling an unsuspecting, genuine ...

Review: Don Jon (DVD/BR)

The Review: It’s that rare oddity of a movie; a film that ends with virtually every character having learned precisely nothing during the course of events, and possibly emerged somewhat dumber than when we first met them. Curious still, is just how skilfully Writer/Director/Star Joseph Gordon-Levitt manages to pack an inordinately large amount of deeply unsympathetic, immature, selfish, psycho-babbling, sex-withholding and ...
