American Psycho (2000)

Patrick Bateman (Christian Bale) is the kind of guy that would ridicule anyone who went to see a psychiatrist, meaning he would never go to see one himself. Well, he really needs to since he spends his spare time killing people for fun. (Or does he?) I’ve seen American Psycho a couple of times now, so you’re […]

Good Time (2017)

Good Time has seedy characters that make bad decision after bad decision, but it’s so fast-paced, their mistakes pull you deeper into the chaos. A chilling performance from Robert Pattinson, coupled with edgy crime-drama, and we’ve got ourselves a damn good film. It’s an adrenalised story that takes place over 24 hours. Pattinson plays Connie, who […]

What is Indie Film?

I enjoy blockbusters just as much as the next guy, but there’s a world of creativity on a road less travelled that is indie film. Most of what I watch falls into the indie category because I find they are often the better films. Since my blog covers independent films, I thought it was about time […]

Wheelman (2017)

Now, this is what I’m talking about! Wheelman is a no-nonsense, beat-the-clock thriller that traps you in a car with Frank Grillo for 82 minutes. It’s the kind movie that’s better with the volume cranked up. You might want to bring some friends over because it’s high tempo and makes you want to cheer on […]

Una (2017)

Obviously, the subject matter of sexual abuse is always difficult to delve into. Is it worth portraying or should it be left alone? Una walks on a tightrope around the topic, with Rooney Mara and Ben Mendelsohn playing the leads. In my opinion, these are two great actors currently flying under people’s radars. As expected, they’re […]

Chef (2014)

Chef Carl was hailed as the next big thing in the LA food scene, but his career hasn’t taken off as hoped, no thanks to restaurant owner Riva (Dustin Hoffman), who is more interested in making money than having a varied menu. Every one of Carl’s pleas to spice up the menu is met with […]

Gerald’s Game (2017)

You know those films that are so intense that you feel drained at the end? Well, Netflix Original Gerald’s Game is one, despite the fact Carla Gugino barely gets out of bed. Also, it might be one of the best films based on a Stephen King book. Here are the details: Jessie (Gugino) and Gerald (Bruce Greenwood) […]

Born to Be Wild: EASY RIDER (1969)

Reigning as one of the most iconic films in cinema history, I had to watch Easy Rider. A film shot on real locations with a young Jack Nicholson and made on a budget of $55,000, I had no idea what I was in for. But with a tagline of “A man went looking for America … and […]

The Illusionist (2006)

Anything starring Edward Norton I’ll watch and so should you. Why? Because he makes you fascinated about every character he plays. This is the case in The Illusionist, but it’s a shame he couldn’t save it from being overshadowed by a better 2006 film about magicians (The Prestige). Not to worry though, it’s still very […]

Eastern Promises (2007)

David Cronenberg’s Eastern Promises takes on the Russian mafia in a rainy, murky London. We go along with Russian mobsters, Nikolai (Viggo Mortensen) and Krill (Vincent Cassel), as well as the good-natured nurse Anna (Naomi Watts) within the brutal criminal underworld. What makes this film cut above your average crime story is how the lives of a […]

Wyrmwood: Road of the Dead (2014)

A fate worse than death: becoming a zombie – as seen in hundreds of movies about zombie invasions. Some are great and some are rubbish, but we can’t get enough of them, can we? Wyrmwood is another entry in the flesh-eating canon. I wasn’t expecting much from this micro-budget “B” movie, but it was one of the […]
