Fracture (2007)

This film is 2 things: Technically it could fit into Noirvember, as it is a crime/court thriller. At the same time it is a Thanksgiving movie recommended to me by a friend when I was discussing detective mysteries. This film slipped under my radar at the time of its release, and now that I’ve seenContinue reading “Fracture (2007)”

Perfect Blue (1997)

Oh boy, we’re continuing Noirvember with something very special…to me at least…Because I still remember that day back in, I’d say sometime in 2005. I walked into Cash Converters, scanned through the DVDs, and here it was. I knew nothing about this film at the time, other than it looked like everything you would expectContinue reading “Perfect Blue (1997)”

Bad Lieutenant (1992)

Artwork by Aaron Clements, November 9th 2020. To continue on with the theme of Noirvember, we’re now going to talk about a film that I went into without any prior knowledge other than “Hey, Harvey Keitel is in this!”. A film that’s not really addressed anymore, as it had been (sort of) remade in 2009Continue reading “Bad Lieutenant (1992)”

Homicide (1991)

I’ve decided to use the month of November to do a series of reviews that revolve around Film Noir in any shape or form (known as Noirvember). The rule is that it has, at minimum, a few noir elements or influences, and at most we are watching the full blown chain-smoking-bogart experience. Today we’ll beContinue reading “Homicide (1991)”

Pee Mak (2013)

With a certain holiday (if we can call it that this year) around the corner, let’s do a ghost story. And in this case, let’s talk about a ghost story that made so much money in Thailand that it became their highest grossing film, by being made on a budget of $1,800,000 and leaving theContinue reading “Pee Mak (2013)”

Knives Out (2019)

Whodunits; the foundation (and go-to staple) of detective fiction fantasy. Set in manors or mansions or luxurious trains, a detective arrives to a murder and tries to find the culprit from within a small group of people. Red Herrings, revisions of clues, new perceptions, motives and a potentially guilty butler. It is a genre thatContinue reading “Knives Out (2019)”

Yamishibai: Japanese Ghost Stories (2013)

To continue the focus on J-Horror for the time being, we’re now going to have a look at a show that has, well…possibly everything to do with this sub-genre. You can find it on Crunchyroll, and as of 2020 is still going, and now has a live action version of itself available. You could watchContinue reading “Yamishibai: Japanese Ghost Stories (2013)”

Ring (1998)

Ever since I started writing on this website, this film was going to eventually pop up on it. And though I missed what would have been a good time to release it (mid September), anything horror related is usually a perfect choice in October anyway. We’ll add to the fact that one of the actressesContinue reading “Ring (1998)”

Sherlock Holmes Vs Arsène Lupin (2007/2010)

Right, this will be my first covering of a Sherlock Holmes story, I believe, and in all likeliness it’s the first one by Frogwares that I’ve covered. Is there anything special to say about Frogwares? Yes – despite being a smaller video game company with a significantly smaller budget compared to the likes of RockContinue reading “Sherlock Holmes Vs Arsène Lupin (2007/2010)”

Coffee Talk (2020)

I will say 1 thing about this game…It came out in January this year and is set in this Autumn coming…and even though it’s technically set in an alternate reality, I doubt the creators knew that 2020 would turn out the way it did.  Making it even more of a fantasy that they possibly anticipated.Continue reading “Coffee Talk (2020)”
