Retro Review: Only Lovers Left Alive

Submitted by melissa on September 6, 2016 - 9:00am


 

Every person I know that has seen Only Lovers Left Alive has nothing but praise for it, of which I wholeheartedly agree. At the center of the tale are two vampires who, married, live in different parts of the world.  After such a long physical separation, Adam and Eve (fantastic, right?) are reunited and are immediately inseparable as if no time has passed. This bliss doesn't last, however, when Eve's sister arrives and stirs up trouble in paradise.

As a special treat, we have two reviews for you, one from Michael aka Petrocs, and the other from Jeremy aka Spirit of the Thing.

Set against the romantic desolation of Detroit and Tangier, an underground musician, deeply depressed by the direction of human activities, reunites with his resilient and enigmatic lover.

Their love story has already endured several centuries at least, but their debauched idyll is soon disrupted by her wild and uncontrollable younger sister. Can these wise but fragile outsiders continue to survive as the modern world collapses around them?

Retro Review: Back to the Future

Director Robert Zemeckis probably hoped that his film about a time traveling boy would be a remembered, but I'm reasonably sure he had no idea the impact it would have on the legions of fans for years to come. To say this movie was a success would be an understatement. Since 1985, Back to the Future has gone on to gross more than $381 million dollars worldwide and was the #1 movie of 1985. Back to the Future was voted the 23rd greatest film ever made by readers of Empire Magazine, it has been included in AFI's Top 10 Science Fiction Films of All Time, it was selected for preservation in the United States National Film Registry by the Library of Congress as being "culturally, historically, or aesthetically significant", and most importantly, it is my #1 movie of all time. Let's look back 29 years into the past and travel Back to the Future.

Retro Review: The Raid 2: Berandal - Has Gareth Evans Created A Monster Franchise?

Submitted by petrocs on July 26, 2016 - 10:06pm


 

Foreign films have not done particularly well on U.S. soil, because audiences here tend to avoid films that contain subtitles and may also contain a storyline that reflects another culture's heritage (i.e. history or artistically). An always niche genre, martial arts films have usually fallen prey to this type of thinking and have not done well at the U.S. box office; unless of course they starred Jackie Chan and co-starred some American sidekick. Although martial arts films have a loyal following here in the U.S., many films are released at film festivals and even sometimes receive a limited release. This was the case with director Gareth Evans 2011 cult classic, The Raid: Redemption. After much praise on the awards circuit, the film went on to gross $4.5 million in the U.S., but built a legion of fans throughout the preceding years. Gareth Evans promised that a sequel would be forthcoming and it has; 2014 has brought us The Raid 2: Berandal.
