Mike Flanagan’s breakthrough film ‘Absentia’ makes it to Blu-ray in July

If you’ve not yet seen Absentia you can read my review here.  For those who already know the movie they’ll know the original release for Absentiawas barebones.  The good news is that Second Sight are now going to release the film on blu-ray with added special features, which is something the film rightly deserves.  Second Sight are a company that also provide high quality releases so this is one…

True Detective Coming to DVD and Blu-Ray in the UK in June

Frankenstein and the Monster from Hell Review (Blu-ray)

Frankenstein and the Monster from Hell Review (Blu-ray)

I often pride myself on the fact that I grew up on Hammer films and many of my favourite moments have come from actors such as Christopher Lee and Peter Cushing.  As I watched most of the movies for the first time as a child there were some that never really connected me that much, one of them being Frankenstein and the Monster from Hell.  As I’ve grown older though and more mature I’ve…

Five-Minute Preview for How To Train Your Dragon 2

Want to see five minutes of How To Train Your Dragon 2? If you do, well here it is.  It seems fair to point out that there are spoilers in the preview, but having watched it there are no major plot points.  What you get to see mostly is what life is now like for the humans and dragons and most importantly dragon racing.  They have quite a unique use for sheep during the races, look out for the…

From the producers of Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy, the writer of Drive and the author of The Talented Mr.Ripley, The Two Faces of January is an intensely gripping, stylish, clever and visually stunning adaptation of Patricia Highsmith’s classic thriller, starring three actors at the top of their game – Viggo Mortensen, Kirsten Dunst and Oscar Isaac.

It’s 1962. A glamorous American couple, the charismatic Chester MacFarland (Viggo Mortensen) and his alluring younger wife Collette (Kirsten Dunst), are in Athens during a European vacation. While sightseeing at the Acropolis they encounter Rydal (Oscar Isaac), a young, Greek-speaking American who is working as a tour guide. Drawn to Colette’s beauty and impressed by Chester’s wealth and sophistication, Rydal gladly accepts their invitation to dinner. However all is not as it seems with the MacFarlands, Chester’s affable exterior hides darker secrets. As events take a sinister turn, Rydal finds himself compromised and entangled as an accomplice to a crime committed by Chester. Their journey takes them from Greece to Turkey, and to a dramatic finale played out in the back alleys of Istanbul’s Grand Bazaar.

He Who Dares Review – An British Attempt at The Raid?

If I was to ask you to think of action movies set in tower blocks you could probably come up with movies like Die Hard, Dredd and The Raid as being some of the most popular.  Working with these type of settings it allows the film to have a certain controlled level of action and even set the fighting at levels of hardness.  This is something that He Who Daresdoes, but at a low-budget and with a…

New Main International Poster for Edge of Tomorrow

New Main International Poster for Edge of Tomorrow

Whatever we think about Tom Cruise’s private life, one thing he can be depended on is picking the right movies to continue his billing as one of the top Hollywood performers.  He’s had a few movies that haven’t performed as well as he probably would have hoped (like Oblivion) so will he be back on top with the Groundhog Day like Edge of Tomorrow? I guess that we will have to see.  Until then here…
