Society [DVD] [2012]
Society [DVD] [2012]
Dvd ~ Billy Warlock
Price: £10.20

3.0 out of 5 stars Watchable, 19 May 2015

This review is from: Society [DVD] [2012] (DVD)
This is a case of the memory being better than the reality.I saw this back in it's day on VHS,a film that reinforces the conspiracy theory that the rich are a different breed from the rest of us.Bill Whitney is a Beverley Hills college boy living with his perants & sister,he is convinced something bad is going to happen & is receiving therapy for what looks like paranoia.Blanchard,one of his friends who's been pestering Bills sister,also believes something is not quite right,to the point of spying electronically on his sister and perants.
Billy is presented with this tape & takes it to his therapist,but when it's played back the contents have somehow changed.There are plenty of strange things going on but is it Billys paranoia or imagination or are all his fears real.

The climax to the film is by far the best bit,with some impressive effects(no cgi remember).Unfortunately the rest is no more than a teen drama with some pretty stereotypical characters.The acting at times is fair at best & some of the diologue is cringe worthy,Billy Warlock is a sort of poor mans Micheal J Fox.Overall disappointing,time has not done this film any favours.

Here is one extremely good reason why people should watch more world cinema & shows how much you're missing out if you don't.
This is almost a travelogue/documentary, i was almost waiting for a voice over or someone to do a piece to camera.There is an interview with the director which i didn't watch,but i did wonder how many professional actors they used because it's so natural.This is the migration equivalent of "Stand By Me" as Juan,Chaulk & Sara leave the slums of Guatemala to head north to the U.S..
The journey is taken on the roofs of trains,on the way they face gangs,drug traffickers & corrupt officials & meet,eat,drink & even dance with the many others they meet.
A film about people & friendship & an absorbing,sometimes suspenseful gem.

"Old Yellow Moon" was such a good album it's made this a must have.Two legends showing us why they've stood the test of time.A faultless country album that's already a favourite,don't like country,well,you're missing out.


Kabuki Volume 1: Circle Of Blood: Circle of Blood v. 1
Kabuki Volume 1: Circle Of Blood: Circle of Blood v. 1
by David Mack
Edition: Paperback
Price: £14.99

5.0 out of 5 stars Extraordinary, 10 May 2015
One THE best comics/books I've ever read.Kabuki is struggling to come to terms with the death of her mother,working for a government agency called the Noh,she copes by hiding behind a mask.Somewhere in the future & set in Japan the worlds of crime,politics & businesses are interdependent.The balance is fragile,it's the Nohs job to keep the peace between all these factions.
An extraordinary story which is almost poetic in the way it's written,the art work is in black & white but is really striking.As the book goes on we discover more of how Kabuki came to this point,what part the general had in her past & now the threat posed by Kai.Crime,culture,espionage,political intrigue,family & a a personal crusade,this is an absolute must for any graphic novel reader.An astonishing piece of work.

2.0 out of 5 stars Yawn Yawn!!, 10 May 2015

This review is from: Dracula Untold (DVD)
This is not a horror film,it's yet ANOTHER reboot & what seems to be a string of retold classic stories.This time it's a young prince trying to protect his family & kingdom from the Turks.To help him win this war he visits another vampire living in a cave,after drinking his blood he has three days with the powers of a vampire ,in this time he must win the war & avoid drinking any blood to avoid being trapped as a nocturnal blood sucker.

I don't need yet another version of Dracula's early life,i don't care,what would be nice is a proper Dracula horror film set in today's world,not more sword & sandles with the stereotypical cast of characters.This is boring because it offers nothing new,we've seen it all before,give me temptation!!

Good album! This is indie music you could dance,a sort of indie synth pop.Hard to pick a favourite track because this is crammed with catchy tunes,,lots of close harmonies to.Not much wrong here,good stuff.

This is very hard to describe,but it's got some pretty mean grooves & good melodies.

3.0 out of 5 stars Very Average, 7 May 2015
This review is from: Ivy Tripp (Audio CD)
This is fairly bog standard singer/songwriter material.The album has a stripped back feel to it although some of the tracks lean towards rock.She has a nice voice but it's that sultry tone that's all too common.Plenty of albums like it & there'll be plenty more,good but nowhere near great.

This was out around the same time as "Fifty Shades Of Grey" & overlooked in favour of a trashy,badly written,badly acted waste of time.
This is the film it should've been,beautifully photographed this is a small feast for the eyes,set somewhere in Europe with plenty of visual effects & some really good use of mirrors.
The story revolves around Cynthia & Evelyn,from the start Cynthia is very dictatorial & seems to be in complete control.The couple obviously love each other very much but Evelyn has sadomasochistic demands,most of these are written down so Cynthia knows exactly what she should be doing & when.Their relationship is put under pressure as Evelyns demands become more extreme,from a human toilet,a specially made bed,being sat on & tied & locked in a box.
The film isn't hugely graphic but it's not hard to work out what's going on,quite funny in places but the melancholy sets in later in the film.
One of the most engrossing British films I've seen,absolutely stunning.
