Braquo (TV series) (2009-)

Wow! What an absolute stunning piece of television this. I could literally use every superlative in the English language to lavish praise on this show, and it still wouldn’t be enough. Jean Hugues-Anglade plays Eddy Caplan, the leader of a group of Parisian police officers, who have no qualms about stepping over the line when […]

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. […]

Outland (1981)

Outland is a sci-fi in appearance, but it doesn’t play like a typical sci-fi and is all the better for it. Outland is more of a western in the vein of ‘High Noon’ than any sci-fi released around the same time. It was made in 1980 and released in 1981. Back when practical effects were […]

John Dies At The End (2012)

Well here it is people, my JDATE review as promised. This film is a strange beast indeed. It’s directed by the brilliant Don Coscarelli (of Phantasm & Bubba Ho-Tep fame). It starts off in a strange dreamlike fashion and pretty much pulls you every which way but loose for the duration. The cast is brilliant. […]
