Nobody does it better.

Coming from Arrow Films on January 6th 2014, hit Danish drama ‘Unit One: Season3’. For me Danish drama is some of the finest stuff on television. You already have The Killing, Borgen and The Bridge not to mention others, and now you also have this. I will be doing reviews of each season soon, so […]

Demons 2 (1986)

I do enjoy watching these movies, however I don’t find them scary at all. I find myself laughing throughout most of it as the acting is very OTT in places. Things kick off here as a girl called Sally (Coralina Cataldi-Tassoni) is having a birthday party. However she storms off into her bedroom when she […]

Demons (1985)

I promised my good buddy Jamie that I’d do a review of Lamberto Bava’s ‘Demons’, so here it is. This is brilliantly trashy 80’s horror from Italian horror legend Lamberto Bava, son of the brilliant Mario Bava. A mysterious stranger appears in a metro station and begins to hand out flyers inviting people to attend […]

A Serbian Film (2010)

I don’t smoke, well not all the time anyway. However I can tell you that I needed a cigarette after viewing this. I no bloody prude, not by a country mile, but this film was almost a bridge too far for me. It challenged me like no other film I’ve seen before. Hollywood this ain’t. […]

Battle Royale (2000)

Could you kill your best friend? That’s the dilemma that faces a class of 15yr old students in Japan. Their class think they are going on a school trip, however the reality is that they have been chosen at random to take part in a new scheme. The scheme which has been dubbed the ‘Battle […]

Dobermann (1997)

H-O-L-Y CRAP!!! This film is just insane. I had heard about it many moons ago, so I decided to have a look for myself. This film is too crazy, almost too much for words but I’m gonna try anyway. It concerns a ruthless gang of armed robbers, who believe it or not are the good […]

A Bittersweet Life (2005)

I remember when I first saw this movie. I was working in Blockbuster (RIP), and as we were allowed free rentals I decided to give it a whirl as I’d heard a lot about it and thought it’d be rude not to really since I didn’t have to pay. I can say that I was […]

Zatoichi (2003)

This film is up there in my top five, hell it may even be number one. Takeshi Kitano who created Takeshi’s Castle and who was a big TV comedy star, writes, directs and stars in this sublime movie. He plays Zatoichi the blind swordsman. He travels across the country posing as a masseuse, but is […]
