In 1975, the popular Women in Prison (or WIP) genre of grindhouse cinema was injected with a dose of World War Two and came up with Don Edmond’s notorious sleaze, sex and violence classic Ilsa, She Wolf of the SS, a film which effectively created the template for what has since become known as Naziploitation, […]
I’ll just put it out there and say that I wasn’t expecting much from Jennifer’s Body. I hated Juno sooo much. It was a self-indulgent and awkwardly scripted film. I was expecting Jennifer’s body to be similar in terms of having an annoyingly quirky script or full of “I’m so cool because I know about […]
The concept of fan-created works is nothing new. From fan fiction, where new stories around existing properties are written for fun, through to paintings of favourite characters, there is a long tradition of this form of appreciation. But for three kids in Mississippi, the release of Steven Spielberg’s Raiders of the Lost Ark would lead […]
Hank (Paul Dano) is a man with no reason to live. Alone, stuck on a desert island with no hope of rescue, he is just about to end it all when a corpse (Daniel Radcliffe) washes up on the beach. It quickly turns out this is no ordinary corpse. First off, the corpse’s chronic and […]
Growing up during the 90s in NZ it felt as if I lived in Britain. The Royal family were basically the Kardashians of the era, everyone watched Coronation Street and the music was all Brit-Pop. This may be triggering to some but I hate the Beatles, and being a 9/10 year old girl when they hit big, Oasis […]
The 3D format, which in the last decade has become a rather commonplace option for moviegoers (particularly when it comes to films of the comic book and science-fiction variety) was initially popularized in the mid-1950s as a ploy by Hollywood filmmakers to combat the rising popularity of television and its potential threat on box-office takings.
Another entry into the continuing series of flicks starring failed actor Caesar (director/writer Dave Campfield) and his half brother Otto (Paul Chomicki), all of which take a stab at the horror genre but with genuine love and understanding.
“Music is DEAD”. Well at least that’s what Colin Hanks wants us to think in this documentary based on one of America’s most iconic record stores, Tower Records. Now, if you were born after 1995 this will probably mean nothing to you so put down your “Applepods” and your “ilaps” and carry on ruining music like […]
“Woooa this is heavy Doc!” Did you know it’s been over 30 years since Back to the Future was first released? Well I didn’t!
Don’t You Wish That We Were Dead is a three year labour of love by film maker Wes Orshoski whose last subject was the legend that is Lemmy. This time Orshoski tackles UK punk pioneers The Damned, first UK punk band to release a 45 (the classic New Rose), the first LP in Damned, Damned, Damned and […]
We have one copy of Nirvana – Come As You Are to giveaway on DVD. To find our more about the DVD you can read our review for it here. To be in to win:
Nirvana – Come As You Are is a rare live television concert from 1992. I have to warn you that the release is not the greatest quality. Visually it is very pixelated to begin with and remains murky throughout from afar, but when the cameras are up close it’s a lot better. The audio isn’t super great, […]
