5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent, 19 Jan. 2015
This review is from: Uptown Special (Audio CD)
The first great album of 2015 & this could be the soundtrack to the year.A throwback to the funk & soul dance of the 70's with a modern twist,track three is James Brown all over.Good stuff.i love it.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not Bad, 11 Jan. 2015
This review is from: The Kingdom (DVD)
After watching a few of his recent films,I decided to take a look at some of his earlier work.This review is for the first two episodes,it's pretty much a Danish soap opera with a vague ghost story.The whole thing is filmed with an orange tinge & has a similar feeling to it as some Cronenberg films have.
The Kingdom refers to the hospital,which has been built on ex marsh land.This was also where workers would bleach fabric,it's quite obvious from the start that people lost their lives doing this job,making the marsh a sort of graveyard.This has now become a gate to another dimension/level in life.The film follows the lives of various members of staff,in particular a neurosurgeon who faces legal action after a failed operation.One of the patients has heard someone crying in the lift shaft and is convinced there is a ghost that needs help to cross over.
It's not bad but so far i can't see why it has an 18 certification.It's split into two parts,I've watched the first two of five.Compared to more recent offerings its tame,lacking the striking visuals found in "Anti Christ".If you are prepared to do some subtle reading,it's watchable at best.

Absolute rubbish,Seth Rogen continues his run of bad comedies.This is not funny just old hat,every school boy joke in the book that I laughed at when I was 15.

3.0 out of 5 stars We Must Rectify, 4 Jan. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Much better than expected,not a horror film but is quite tense & will make you jump.The story is a mixture of "Raiders Of The Lost Ark","Tomb Raider","Blair Witch" & "The Descent",quite claustrophobic at times & manages to avoid some of those nasty cliches.
Good story,well acted,good characters & really well done,one of the better "found footage" style films.

5.0 out of 5 stars 3+5, 3 Jan. 2015
One of my favourite directors,loved "Anti Christ & "Meloncholia" but not keen on "Holy Motors".This has so many layers to it but it focuses on female sexuality & would it be different if it was a man doing the same thing.This does contain explicit sex scenes & intimate shots of males & female,do not watch if you are easily offended.

The story revolves around Joe,who is found lying in an alley after a beating,she is picked up & taken to a mans house for the night.Here sitting on a bed she tells him her story,starting at 2 years old when she found her sexual side.At 15 she has a competition with her friend to see how many men they can have sex with while on a train.
Incredibly well written with some great performances her story is told over seven chapters,the titles of which are inspired by what she sees around her.
As the story continues she gets married & even has a child but her apppetite for sex is too much for her husband Jerome.Eventually all sexual feeling is lost & she seeks help,the talking & violent type.
An incredible film & brave,the sex scenes are pretty raw & to a point ugly,worth watching the interviews on the special features.Joes story has metofore,often nerdy & with comparisons to fly fishing by her new friend,suprisingly there is humour amongst all this.
Really not for the faint hearted but a great film & highly recomended.

4.0 out of 5 stars Very Good Sequel, 31 Dec. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
One man out for revenge for the death of his son,a couple who have broken down & a mother & daughter saved from certain death,the 6th annual purge has started & for 12 hours murder is legal,happy cleansing!

THE PURGE was good but this is a vast improvement,the main reason is this time it's out on the streets & a life or death game of cat "n"mouse.This time it seems ordinary American aren't killing enough people but maybe the rich & powerful can help.A good cast,decent plot & plenty of action,whats not to like?

2.0 out of 5 stars Lets Twist Again?, 31 Dec. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is worth missing,it felt like a sequel to TWISTER or someone has watched TWISTER & thought,hey,i can do better.Well,no they can't & haven't.The best parts to this are the storm scenes which are quite spectacular,unfortunately there is a lot of padding with a flimsy human drama.
As usual with most disaster films or films roughly in that ball park,we have to suffer a bunch of characters you really couldn't careless about mixed with some suspect acting.Watch TWISTER again,it's not great but the better of the two.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great fun,highly recomended, 30 Dec. 2014
This is a great waste of time,learning the hand gestures is not easy & takes a bit of practice,but once you've got the app it dosen't really matter.I was relieved to see the app is now available on Kindle Fire HDX as this pretty much doubles the fun.
LOVE IT!! best toy ever!

4.0 out of 5 stars Car Or Train?, 29 Dec. 2014
This review is from: Fruitvale Station (DVD)
Fact based drama about Oscar Grant 111, who was no angel as we learn early in the film.The film starts with actual footage taken on the night,Oscar has one daughter & up until two weeks ago a job,he also does a bit of drug dealing which is now helping put food on the table.
New years eve 2007 was spent in San Quentine,one year on & he spends the first part of the evening with family,his daughter is left with a friend.The plan is to go to Frisco to see in the new year,Oscar plans to drive but his mum persuades him to take the train.

I spent most of the film waiting for something to happen,as there seemed to be the constant feeling things were about to go very wrong.Fruitvale Station doesn't come into the film until near the end but for all & quite sad reasons.

A really good,well acted drama & under 90 minutes.
