blue-ruin

Blue Ruin opens showing drifter Dwight (Macon Blair), a man in his early 30s, living on the streets. Something clearly went wrong in his life and, for some time – as shown by the length of his unkempt beard, he’s had it tough. Then the police pick him up and explain that a certain man is about to be released. That man is a double murderer, who has just made a deal to get out of jail.

In a film with precious little dialogue – the complete opposite of seeing a table full of women gassing away at lunchtime in a canteen – we learn that the freed man, Wade Cleland, murdered Dwight’s parents, and so begins this revenge thriller. Unfortunately for Dwight

Killer Klowns From Outer Space: Special Edition on Blu-ray – The DVDfever Review

killer-klowns-from-outer-space

Killer Klowns From Outer Space is a title which, despite pre-dating the Ronseal advert, does exactly what it says on the tin. Well, if not tin, then Steelbook, as the film is available on a regular box as well as the Steelbook Limited Edition. Both contain the film on Blu-ray and DVD, continuing Arrow’s tradition of delivering the goods on both formats in the same package.

Killer Klowns arrive from Outer Space and start killing people, starting with an old man who, first, has his dog stolen by them.

The main people on the case are the preposterously-named Mike Tobacco (Grant Cramer), and since a guy needs a girl, she’s catered for in the form of Debbie Stone (Suzanne Snyder). Mike’s unably assisted by young cop Dave Hanson (John Allen Nelson, best known for the ridiculously-named John D. Cort from Baywatch), and his superior is Curtis Mooney (the ever-wonderful, but now sadly deceased John Vernon, who I remember best as the Mayor from Dirty Harry). He gets some of the best lines including: “I made it through Korea. I can make it through this bullshit.”

The Mockingjay LivesThe Hunger Games Mockingjay Part 1 stems from the third book in the Hunger Games trilogy, and the book is being split into two films.

This time round, Katniss Everdeen (Jennifer Lawrence) reluctantly becomes the symbol of a mass rebellion against the autocratic Capitol.

And today, after teasers and sneak peeks, the first official trailer is finally released, subtitled ‘The Mockingjay Lives’.

The film is directed by Francis Lawrence, who took over the franchise with the second film, and also stars Josh Hutcherson, Liam Hemsworth, Woody Harrelson, Elizabeth Banks, Julianne Moore, Philip Seymour Hoffman, Jeffrey Wright, Stanley Tucci, Donald Sutherland, Toby Jones, Willow Shields, Sam Claflin, Jena Malone, Natalie Dormer, Michelle Forbes and Prison Break‘s Robert Knepper.

The Hunger Games Mockingjay Part 1 is released in the UK on November 20th.

Dead Snow 2: Red vs Dead – Official US Release Trailer #1 – Nazi Zombie Sequel HD

dead snow 2
Dead Snow 2: Red vs. Dead is the sequel to 2009′s Dead Snow, and is, quite simply, a Nazi Zombie movie with gore aplenty.

Now, if the worst day of your life consisted of accidentally killing your girlfriend with an axe, chain-sawing your own arm off, and watching in horror as your closest friends were devoured by a zombified Nazi battalion, you’d have to assume that things couldn’t get much worse. In Martin’s case, that was only the beginning…

Starring Vegar Hoel as Martin, plus Martin Starr, Derek Mears, Amrita Acharia, Ingrid Haas, Kristoffer Joner and Stig Frode Henriksen, this looks bloody incredible and brimming with gore! Okay, it’s nonsense, but it’s fantastic nonsense.

All it needs, as with a lot of films, is a proper UK release date, after its Frightfest UK Premier in August. The US are getting it on a limited run from October 10th.

Listen Up Philip – Official Trailer #1 – Jason Schwartzman, Elisabeth Moss Movie HD

listen-up-philipListen Up Philip is a wonderful new comedy with a great cast including Jason Schwartzman, Elisabeth Moss and one of my all-time favourite actors, Jonathan Pryce.

Anger rages in Philip (Jason Schwartzman) as he awaits the publication of his second novel. He feels pushed out of his adopted home city by the constant crowds and noise, a deteriorating relationship with his photographer girlfriend Ashley (Elisabeth Moss), and his own indifference to promoting the novel. When Philip’s idol Ike Zimmerman (Jonathan Pryce) offers his isolated summer home as a refuge, he finally gets the peace and quiet to focus on his favorite subject: himself.

Also starring Krysten Ritter, Jess Weixler, Kate Lyn Sheil, Dree Hemingway, Joséphine de La Baume and Eric Bogosian, Listen Up Philip is also written and directed by Alex Ross Perry, and hasn’t yet got a release date anywhere but I hope we get it in the UK soon as it looks fantastic.

UK Top 100 Music chart summary & my views w/e September 20th 2014

mu200914Going straight in at No.1, in the UK Top 100 Music Chart w/e September 20th 2014, is Calvin Harris feat. John Newman with Blame, and it’s very much “Calvin Harris’ day off” as it’s bland and predictable.

As such, Lilly Wood and Robin Schulz drop to No.2 with Prayer In C, and it’s okay, but nothing to get excited about. Certainly something that would sound better when in a club and you’re pissed, so who’s buying it at home?

There’s two other new entries – No.6 for Ten Walls with Walking With Elephants, and at No.10, girlfriend-beater Chris Brown, with Usher and Rick Ross with New Flame.

For some reason, 5 Seconds Of Summer climb from No.38 to 7, on their 10th week in the chart, with Amnesia. I’d forgotten all about that one! (I’m here all week, tip your waitress)
