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)”

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)”

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)”

The Shack (2017)

Today we’re going to be talking about what could arguably be 1 of the most polarising films to come out in a number of years.  We’ll mention first of all that it’s (technically) a Christian movie, then we’ll mention how Christians hate this movie – not necessarily because it was a bad movie in design,Continue reading “The Shack (2017)”

My Dad Is A Heel Wrestler (2018)

Well, this will be different.  Because if there’s 1 thing I haven’t covered on this site before, it’s wrestling movies.  I may have covered 1 Wrestlemania before, but that wasn’t a movie.  This on the other hand will be different, because it’s not WWE, but is following a formula that they’ve done as far backContinue reading “My Dad Is A Heel Wrestler (2018)”

Night On Earth (1991)

As a Tom Waits fan and someone who liked Jim Jarmusch’s enjoyable avant garde western known as Dead Man (starring Johnny Depp), finding something like this film just feels like it’s up my street.  A few simple set-ups where the story is more or less the same, and yet it’s not.  Because characters, dialogue, musicContinue reading “Night On Earth (1991)”

Roujin Z (1991) Anime Review

I was first introduced to this film through, believe it or not, a Vaporwave song called PARIS by RITCHRD, which used clips from it in the youtube video by yotsu to add to its already nostalgic aesthetic and tone (It’s all watched without a context, so potential spoilers aren’t really spoilers).  When I realised someContinue reading “Roujin Z (1991) Anime Review”
