LFO: The Movie

Film Three Stars
When I first saw a comparison of LFO: The Movie to Berberian Sound Studio (Filmstalker review) I was a little concerned, after all I didn't take to that film as much as it seems other people did. It was confusing, left too much unsaid and unexplored, and was too vague...

The Raid remake gains director

Have you seen The Raid: Redemption (Filmstalker Review)? No? Well you should do and you should get your hands on it as soon as possible. This is an action film to top all action films and has moments that you can hardly believe are real, moments where you think must...

Robert Zemeckis has found a leading actor for his next film, a film about Philippe Petit, the man who walked the tight rope between the Twin Towers of the World Trade Center in 1974 and who was the focus of the recent well received documentary Man on Wire. The film,...

Hank and Asha

Film Five Stars
By chance this was the first film I saw at the Glasgow Film Festival in 2014 as I received it in a batch of review DVDs and just happened to pick this one first. Lucky for me I chose it. The blurb for the film didn't sell me on the...

Danny Boyle looks set to deliver a film about Billie Jean King and the film would concentrate on her famous Battle of the Sexes tennis match with Bobby Riggs in 1973. The event is documented superbly well in the film The Battle of the Sexes, a surprisingly enjoyable and engaging...

Joe trailer, Cage is back and serious

I admit to seeing this trailer a few days ago and thinking that there was nothing to write about, after all it's just another trailer that everyone's carrying. Except there's something different here, Nicolas Cage. Oh I know what your instant thoughts are, they were mine too, but hold on...

Lone Survivor

Film Four Stars
Having heard the true story behind the film Lone Survivor I was keen to see it, after all it was a nigh on unbelievable story of how a small team of Navy SEALs were dropped near a village in Afghanistan with the orders to recon and locate and kill a...

Sabotage trailer: Ayer, Woods and Arnie

What a combination. David Ayer directing and co-writing, Skip Woods writing and a cast that is headed up by Arnold Schwarzenegger in what looks like a seriously tough role, and supported by, in no particular order, Olivia Williams, Sam Worthington, Terrence Howard, Harold Perrineau, Josh Holloway, Joe Manganiello and Max...

That Awkward Moment

Film One Star
That Awkward Moment didn't really appeal to me but I thought I would give it a go. I so easily write-off American comedies lumping them together with the usual safe and well-trodden plots filled with bodily function and sex jokes galore. Once in a while I should really give them...

Out of the Furnace

Film Five Stars
It's a shame that Out of the Furnace is billed as a revenge thriller considering how it actually turns out on screen, that feels rather limiting and in a way rather demeaning for the story. This is a much more character based film which spends the most part on the...

The Armstrong Lie

Film Four Stars
Out of all the films I saw during the last press day this is one that sticks with me the most. While I don't think it was the best of the day, it continues to stay with me for the questions it has made me ask and the light I...
