A DIY punk band need a gig after they get screwed over by a venue by not getting the money they thought they were getting and as a favour they get invited to play a set at a Neo-Nazi Skinhead gathering. They play their set and all goes well but as they leave one of them inadvertently witnesses the aftermath of a murder and their long and tiring tour takes a sinister turn which turns into surviving at all costs.
This film is tense, it's a well made film, we get to know the band quite well and once the blood starts to fall you feel invested in them all. The violence is sudden, real, brutal and I was on the edge of my seat for most of it. I love Saulnier's previous film Blue Ruin (a fantastic revenge/drama) and this is just as good. Patrick Stewart as the skinhead father figure is fantastic, he is quietly spoken and has control over his subjects like a cult leader, they do not want to disappoint him, they are his trained dogs who do his every bidding. The guys playing the band mates are fantastic too, especially Anton Yelchin, he is definitely an actor who was just going to get better, a sad loss.
If you love your action films and you love horror films then you will definitely enjoy this. An insanely good film.
The latest entry in the Child's Play franchise is the more on the side of the straight faced slasher and mostly ditches the humour. Chucky is back, delivered to an unsuspecting family with an important back story. Takes forever to get going, there are some nice kills and some good scenes of who Charles Lee Ray really was. If you are a fan of the series you will get a kick, I thought it was just ok.
This film is so god damn weird. In a society where when you are a single adult you are forced to reside in a hotel and you have 45 days to find true love or you are turned into an animal of your choosing and released into the wild to live out the rest of your days.
This film is so bloody strange, so darkly comical, so out there, I had to like it. I thoroughly enjoyed it. It is a one of a kind film, an anti-Wes Anderson film. The cast is superb with the material they have to work with. It might be a tad over long as there are some moments where it loses steam, it's something you need to go in with an open mind, you need to able to sit through the strangeness of it all. It has a wicked sense of humour and gets quite dark at times. Quite brilliant really.
Loosely based on the Enfield haunting in the North London suburb back in the 70's, this often creepy film has some freaky moments (the teepee, the painting in the study are the standouts) but in my opinion it doesn't hold a candle to what came before it with the first film. Vera Farmiga and Patrick Wilson are the heroes again, without them both films could have been a lot worse also the young girl that plays Janet is awesome. Wan is the master when it comes to these films, he has a great eye for set pieces and how to build them up to 11, the set designs are beautiful and the camera work is top notch. There are a few negatives but for horror fans and people wanting to watch the film hiding behind the seat then those will most likely go unnoticed. And yes that character will have a spin off film.
A great cast, script and a director more dedicated to the world of crazy comedies get together to create one hell of a film about the prediction of the GFC in the United States through the housing market ie mortgages and how the banks fucked everyone over. I loved how they got actors playing themselves popping up to give us the layman explanations for certain elements key to the upcoming disaster and the cast was brilliant, Steve Carrell and Ryan Gosling were excellent. It was shocking the corruption in the banking sector (it still is there) and how the greed brought about the biggest financial disaster (and how people still profited from the ruining of millions of lives). Watch this film. It's brilliant.
