"Happy Soup" held my ears hostage for quite a while & he does sound a bit Ian Dury.As a previous reviewer has already said,it's simple stuff but it works so well.more of the same,catchy tunes & addictive....love it!!

4.0 out of 5 stars Always at 11, 9 Nov 2014
This review is from: Miss Violence (DVD)
I can not remember the last time i watched a film,that is so cold in its look & feel.There is no soudtrack apart from what the family plays on thier own system,the family are the most loveless bunch i've come across in a film & i couldn't decide who was the worst offender here.
This is not a horror film,there is no violence apart from a sex scene (rape actually) which makes uncomfortable viewing,very little gore but the whole tone of the film with it's subject matter,is deeply disturbing.The film starts with a birthday party for one of the three daughters,but when one of them throws herself of the balcony,an investigation is launch by welfare.
The family insist it was just an accident but it's quite clear something much more sinister is going on.

A very very good film,dealing with a particularly nasty subject matter with a family full of victims.

5.0 out of 5 stars Flying high again, 9 Nov 2014
This review is from: The Wind Rises (DVD)
A sweeping animation epic which is beautifully filmed,a real treat for the eyes.This tells the story of Jiro,an architect who drsigned the fighter planes for world war2.This dosen't exactly charge along pace wise,but it has plenty of charm,quite funny in places & is tinged with sadness.It's actually quite refreshing to get away from computer animation,which is all we seem to get these days for major releases.
Brilliant film & a fitting swan song.

This review is from: Road (Amazon Instant Video)
Another sports documentary you don't need any knowledge to enjoy it.This concentrates on the Dunlop brothers,who follow in the family footsteps into motorcycle road racing.
One of the most engaging documentaries I've seen,the racing footage is excellent & gives you the riders view,it's very very fast!
Apart from the racing side,the film is packed with raw emotion.There is huge success & tragedy in almost equal measure.
This is as good as "Senna" if not better because there is a more human side to it all which makes it a rollercoaster of a watch.

2.0 out of 5 stars Predator 4?, 8 Nov 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Sea Beast (Amazon Instant Video)
This is a poor mans "Predator" the creatures even blend into the background,it's such a blatant rip off.The story is based in a small town & follows fisherman Will,who loses one of his crew at the start.There is a "Jaws" feel to this as well because as you'd expect no one believes him when he reveals what he saw that night on his boat.
Bring on the scientist & some trapped kids to complete the rip off.The cover is misleading as the monster spends the majority of the film on land.Ropey special effects mixed with some cringe worthy diologue.The acting is dreadful,Nemec is bad enough but the girl who plays Carly,his daughter,takes the biscuit,hopeless doesn't cover it.
A pretty painful 90 minutes,worth avoiding.

4.0 out of 5 stars Taxi!!, 3 Nov 2014
This review is from: Chained (DVD)
A slightly disturbing horror film but don't expect a violent gore fest.This is more about slavery than serial murderer,set in a large town somewhere in America,a mother & her 9 year old son get a taxi home after a trip to the cinema but when he drives past thier turn off,they find themselves bieng driven out of town to a remote house.
The mother is dragged from the car & taken from garage into the house,her son is left locked in the car listening to his mums constant screams.We don't see the murder but it's pretty obvious what he's done.Her son is then taken into the house & held as a slave.He must clean up any mess,eat & drink only when told but it will be left overs,provide breakfast every morning & cut out any newspaper articles about missing people & put them neatly in the scrap book.Any failure to do any of this,escape or fail to answer the door in under 10 seconds when he brings a victim home,will result in a beating.
The film covers a ten year period (guessing) as we jump to his teens or near enough,spending most of his time chained by the ankle,escape or even going out is impossible.
There is some gore but for most of the murders we only see the aftermath.There is a constant feel of unesase as you're never quite sure how his new "dad" is going to react.There are attempts at education but for all the wrong reasons & towards the end they seem to be almost friends in a very twisted way.
A small twist at the end & room for a sequal,history repeating itself judging by the sounds during the end credits.
Good film,not the usual mindless slasher gore fest.


Divergent

4.0 out of 5 stars Pigeon Holed, 2 Nov 2014
This review is from: Divergent (DVD)
A really good family sci-fi film that has plenty of action & a decent plot.Set in a dystopian society after a huge war 100 years earlier,survivors now live in a city surrounded by a large wall.They are split into factions based on thier personalities,at a certain age they sit a test which tells them which faction they're best suited to but they can choose based on where they think they belong.
If you fail the test & it's inconclusive you are divergent,these people are considered a threat to the system & a threat to the peace,faction before blood,human nature has no place here.
The film centers round Beatrice who faces seperation from her family & a life trying to hide that she is actually divergent,but when she joins thier law enforcement faction,she finds a suprising allie who could help her.Failure to pass the hard training will mean living factionless,said to be worse than death,or if she is found out as a divergent they will kill her.

When i started watching this it did feel like it could be another spin on "Logans Run" or The Island" but i was wrong.This is actually quite character driven to a point,diologue's good,the story has plenty of meat on the bones & it needs a sequal.
Very good,well worth watching.

1.0 out of 5 stars One Star Too Many, 1 Nov 2014
This review is from: Scary Movie 5 (DVD)
This really is flogging a dead horse,the spoof ran out of steam 15 years ago but still they churn them out.Only three spoofs worth watching:
Airplane
Airplane 2
Naked Gun
& thats about it,there are others which are "watchable" but the above are the cream.Scary Movie 5 attempts to take the mick out of the likes of MAMA,PARANORMAL ACTIVITY,BLACK SWAN plus various others,all done badly.Most of the so called gags come from slapstick,that usually involves people being hit,thrown or falling,make a fortune on "You've Been Framed" but here it is just not funny just incredibly dum.
A complete waste of time & one of the worst so called comedies this year,time spoofs went away,licked thier wounds & return when someone has some FRESH ideas,about 20 years should do it!!
