Reviews: Only Lovers Left Alive

Submitted by melissa on April 13, 2014 - 10:23am


 

Now playing in New York & Los Angeles with more to follow.

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?

There are many ways to get a film made in Hollywood today. You could take the Troy Duffy way (Boondock Saints)and explode onto the scene in a hail of fireworks and sycophantic blubbering (and then crashing and burning). Or you could take the Kevin Smith way, building buzz by by crafting your own low-budget film and taking through the festival circuit. And, in recognizing the new tecmologies (as Ali G would say) out there, you could create your own web-series and turn it into a feature. From FunnyorDie.com to the big screen, Jesus People: The Movie, which was made in 2009 finally hits the theaters this weekend.

In theaters and VOD now!

Review: Dom Hemingway - Jude Law As You've Never Seen Him Before

Submitted by petrocs on April 12, 2014 - 9:41am


 

Jude Law is one of the finest actors of our time. His choice of performances over the past 20 years has been a collection of pretty boys, hit men, soldiers and doctors. He's been a Sky Captain, Alfie, a swashbuckler (well...technically Errol Flynn), the second Imaginarium Tony 2, a conspiracy theorist, and Hugo's father. Now he gets to add safe cracking, volatile, loud mouth, thug to his repertoire.

Dom Hemingway follows the its titular protagonist (Law) as he adjusts to life after being released from prison after 12 years. Dom spends his first three days of his release catching up on all the drugs, alcohol and prostitutes that he's missed while incarcerated. After reconnecting with his loyal pal Dickie (Grant), Hemingway sets off to see the crime boss for whom he took the fall for a dozen years ago, Mr. Fontaine (Bichir), and collect repayment for his services. Of course Dom can't do anything the easy way. After insulting Mr. Fontaine and demanding to have sex with his beautiful companion Paolina (Ghenea) during a drunken tirade, Hemingway finds himself penniless and in need of some soul searching. Hemingway decides to search out his long lost daughter Evelyn (Clarke) to reconcile for all the years he's lost.

Review: Oculus - You'll Never Look In A Mirror Again

Submitted by petrocs on April 11, 2014 - 9:47pm


 

Jason Blum at Blumhouse Pictures is making a decent living of scaring the crap out of the world. Over the last 7 years, his production company has brought more successful franchises and standalone low-budget horror films than anyone else. The formula? Small cast, limited set pieces, few, if any, special effects and a will to make you pee yourself. Oculus does nothing to sway from this formula.

Directed by Mike Flanagan who co-wrote the screenplay with Jeff Howard, tells a story which centers around two young siblings Kaylie (Basso) and Tim Russell (Ryan). Ten years ago they witnessed their parents, Marie (Sackhoff) and Alan (Cochrane), go insanely mad as a result, presumably, of a mysterious mirror hanging in their father's office. As a result, the children are forced to defend themselves and Tim kills his father. When the police arrive they remove the children from the house and they are separated. Tim is taken into custody for the murder of his father while Kaylie is sent to an orphanage.
