Review: The Void

I’ve seen some $#!t… When a police officer stumbles across a drug addict by the road and takes him to the nearby hospital, he quickly finds himself and a handful of others quickly under siege by mysterious hooded figures. But what’s worse is the strangers appear to be preventing them from escaping… as an inhuman terror…

Trilogy Review: Death Race (2008, 2010, 2013)

Death Race (2008) The remake of the David Carradine 1975 film is surprisingly star studded and overall a good piece of vehicular entertainment. In the heady future of 2012… Jason Statham plays Jensen Ames (“like the car”) an ex-con working in a steel factory who’s world is turned upside down when he is framed for…

Review: Only God Forgives

Well that was a thing that I watched with my eyeballs. From what I can gather: an American man running a martial arts ring in Thailand is forced by his psychotic mother to seek revenge on the kill-crazy police officer that had his older brother killed. Director Nicolas Winding Refn also made the incredible Drive, also…

Trio Review: The Punisher

Surprise Trio Review! I figured with Marvel’s Netflix show Daredevil returning to us in March, with the added bonus of The Punisher character making an appearance, I would review all of the Punisher films! Yes, all. Did you know there’s been three of these things? In 1989 there was a Punisher film made by an…

Remake Rumble Review: Oldboy

Remake Rumble…? More like Remake Execution. So, against my better judgment I’ve decided to do this particular Remake Rumble! I guess it wouldn’t leave my mind until I had seen it through. Read, and feel the frustration! Oldboy (2003) The definition of a revenge tale, beautifully savage and cynically dark in humour, Oldboy is one…

Review: You’re Next

Despite all the atypical slasher cliches, You’re Next does have some appeal. Even if it is a long slew of endless murder. When wealthy parents invite their children and partners to their countryside house, they are suddenly surrounded by masked murderers who are intent to hunt down and kill every one of them. However, one…

Review: The Machine Girl

If I were to say that The Machine Girl is one of the stupidest, worst films I’ve seen in a while, would you actually accept my argument? After all, I just willingly watched a film about a Japanese school girl with a machine gun for an arm, what did I expect?? So, school children born…

Review: Dredd (3D)

Dredd is easily the most underrated genre movie produced in recent years. A visually stunning and faithful adaptation of the ultra-violent comic book series. Far in the future America is a irradiated wasteland, the countries entire populous is now crammed and choking inside concrete jungles. Huge cities, principally Mega City One, are rife with crime and…

Review: The Raid (Redemption)

A nonstop melee of gun battles, punching and kicking with some of the best physical choreography I’ve ever seen. The story, as straight forward as it is, follows a squad of police officers sent into a high-rise building controlled by an underworld tyrant to take him down. Unfortunately the tyrant’s calculated living has the building…
