5.0 out of 5 stars A Family Ripped Apart, 19 Oct 2014
This review is from: Trust (DVD)
One of the best dramas i've seen this year & a difficult subject matter to tackle for any director.This should be shown in schools across the country to perants & children.
Life seems pretty perfect for Clive Owen & his family,but when his fifteen year old daughter meets Charlie on a teen chat sight thier lives are turned upside down.After a period of grooming,online & by phone,they agree to meet in a shopping mall,Charlie has already lied about his age twice,going from fifteen then twenty two but when they meet he is twenty years older.

I found some of this hard to watch,particularly the motel room scene.Great performances all round but it's our victim who really steals the show.Disturbing & moving.The internet is a great thing but it also has a very very dark side to it.Hats off to David Schwimmer on an awkward subject so well handled.

3.0 out of 5 stars Looks Familiar, 18 Oct 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The story is good and simple,young couple take themselves into the wilderness to explore the myth of Bigfoot.45 years after a filmed sighting,they return to the home of Bigfoot,Willow Creek,after interviews with some of the locals,they drive as far as they can then walk off into the woods towards the area of that sighting.
A found footage film for those who like films such as the "Blair Witch Project".It's only around 80 minutes long which felt about right,slow to get going but the last 40 minutes or so was almost worth the wait.
Certainly doesn't lack tension but what's written on the cover is absolute rubbish.Not great but watchable.

4.0 out of 5 stars Decent Sequel, 17 Oct 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This starts with a speeding ticket,when two cops decide to stop Mick to up thier quoter,big mistake.Our next two victims our a young German couple hitchiking with a visit to Wolf Creek,Mick stops to pick them up earlier on but drives off as another truck approaches,he eventually catches up with them as they settle down in thier tent.Most of the film concentrates on the British tourist who only tries to help but finds himself being chased round the outback & playing the worst quiz in the world.

John Jarratt reprises his role as the sadistic Mick Taylor,there is one scene that screams Steven Spielbergs "Duel" as the it drops more into the action/adventure mold for part of the film.Plenty of gore & violence with shades of "Hostel" towards the end.Not as good as the original but as sequels go,it's one of the better ones.
I can see a third on the horizon but as a villain Mick is in danger of becoming another Freddy Kruger already.

This review is from: Art Official Age (Audio CD)
Much better than some critics make out,Qmagazine for instance.After the rock/funk of 3rdeyegirl,this is much more laid back,funk to relax you really.Good album!

This review is from: El Pintor (Audio CD)
More of the same,there does come a point when you think why on earth do i buy this group/artists albums,i have reached that point with Interpol.Heard one then you've pretty much heard them all,boring!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Absolute gem, 5 Oct 2014
Been a huge fan since "Car Wheels" which i picked up out of curiosity.Lucinda is about quality rather than quality,which is obvious on how long she has been around & the number of albums.
This country rock double is easily the best thing since the above,"Honey" is probably her weakest of recent & the re-release of her self titled 1988 album was very very welcome,a massive favourite.

One of the best female singer/songwriters around who remains pretty much out of the mainstream,that's not a bad thing.Great album!!

1.0 out of 5 stars Avoid!!, 4 Oct 2014
This review is from: Pompeii (DVD)
Learnt something new today & came as a bit of a suprise,Pompeii was also hit by a tidle wave!! (yeah right)
This is almost as bad as "Noah" which is also time wasted i will never get back.Woefull acting & woefull dialogue in a disaster film that has some flimsy melodrama attached to hit,just like so many others i really couldn't give a rats arse about any of the 1d characters.The effects are ok but so what,it was a relief when the volcano errupted.
Absolute rubbish.

4.0 out of 5 stars In Good Form, 2 Oct 2014
This review is from: Plectrumelectrum (Audio CD)
A splattering of singles over the last few years,most of them pretty good.Two new albums in a row & this is the one to buy,a mixture of rock & some funky stuff.

4.0 out of 5 stars Must be C6, 8 Sep 2014
This review is from: Locke (DVD)
One man in a car driving to London,he turned the wrong way when he left work & now we watch his life collapse around him.Ivan Locke has worked for the same construction company for ten years & has not put a foot wrong.But a one night stand comes back with a nasty bite to the arse.The most important day in his working life looms & he wont be there.
Tom Hardy is the only person in this film,the only other voices are from the numerous phone calls he has while driving.

This is a play,it is different but i was glued & i dont know why but i did feel a certain amount of tension.Deserves more than one star!!

3.0 out of 5 stars Delivery Man Forgets Laughs, 8 Sep 2014
This review is from: Delivery Man (DVD)
The plot is nice & simple,sperm donor who discovers he has 533 children & around 140 of them now want to know who thier father is.
He's made over 600 donations & it turns out his sperm was SO good it was over used,some of his off spring challenge his right to aninimity.Just to complicate things a little more,his girlfriend his pregnant & wants him to get a life,time to face up to the past.

Whilst being quite heart warming at times,this is just not funny enough.At times it's closer to being a wishy washy drama that happens to be mildly amusing & that's all it is,mildly amusing.
Watchable but should have been much much funnier,surely the subject matter has a moutain of decent laughs,unused,in a heap somewhere.
