5.0 out of 5 stars "No regrets", 30 May 2014
BLUE RUIN is a beautiful revenge-thriller full of graceful photography and violent pulp goodness. Filmmaker Jeremy Saulnier pulls off several visual tricks but my favorite is how lead actor Macon Blair is often bathed in a symbolic blue light. And Blair does an amazing job as protagonist Dwight making him simultaneously sweet and creepy. Small touches of humor lighten the mood and, for the blood lovers, there are a few instances of gore with great special-effects.

BLUE RUIN is an A+ crime-movie with unlimited re-watch potential. A new cult-classic showing Revenge as an action that can harm those who did nothing.

Beyond brutal and containing a giant amount of fight and kill action, RAZE is as advertised: A full-on pummeling with superb blood effects, cool set-designs, first-class photography and tons of bone shattering head-smashes. There are excellent touches of gore but the flick is not as exploitative as many other sadistic thrillers.

RAZE is definitely a horror movie, however, so buyer beware as it's a particularly disturbing one. Fans of hyper-violent film should watch immediately. Bravo Ladies!

5.0 out of 5 stars "Farewell daddy blues", 26 Nov 2013
BOARDWALK EMPIRE's 4th season adds even more brutal violence (yes, it was possible) and brilliant character-study with several supporting cast dominating screen-time (Chalky, Agent Jim, Mr. Purnsley, Will Thompson and the twitchy Dr. Narcisse). Even so, Steve Buscemi remains the #1 reason to follow the show religiously. Lots of fun time is spent in Florida and, of course, in Chicago focusing on the rise of Al Capone (A role and accent mastered by British actor, Stephen Graham).

Overall, the finest gift of the EMPIRE is its dedication to realistic-fiction with spot-on set-pieces, costumes and exquisite jazz along with our anti-heroes believable story-lines over the years… Read more
