It wowed audiences earlier this year and took a ton of money at the box-office, and now Universal Pictures is pushing for Oscars for the break-out horror movie Get Out.

‘Brimstone’ Review: Dir. Martin Koolhoven (2017)

4 hours ago

Brimstone review: Guy Pearce leads the cast of this new movie from director Martin Koolhoven, one we’re calling ‘one of the most visceral and intense western thrillers of all time.’

Brimstone review by Ben Read.

Brimstone review

The western has always been a fickle beast. Its quality, reliability, and durability, has been a source of strong debate for many years among audiences. While originally thought to have died out in the late 1960’s, the genre has seen a wonderful resurgence in recent years. This has lead to some excellent modern entries in the genre, such as 3:10 to Yuma and True Grit. However, with the genre still struggling to find itself a legitimate audience, how does Martin Koolhoven’s Brimstone fare?

First of all, this is a film that is definitely not for the faint-hearted. Where most western’s glorify and glamorise the shoot ’em up, Wild West element of the era, »

Home Entertainment: ‘Baywatch’ review

8 hours ago

 

For anyone in their early 30s, you probably spent many a Saturday evening watching Stars in Their Eyes and Gladiators. Fun, entertaining shows for all the family. However, if you were even earlier to the punch, you’d also have enjoyed one of the most ridiculous yet rewarding shows of its (or any) time. From the opening bars of the power ballad theme tune, to slow motion running of red swimsuited women, Baywatch just took all the glamour and sex appeal of the sunny beach, and threw in nonsense plots regarding crimes, danger, and probably cyber attacks (I don’t know I stopped watching long before its 2001 cancellation). Now, since it’s been 16 years – and Hollywood loves a brand name – let’s bring it back with tongue firmly in cheek.

For those unfamiliar with the show, it centres around a bunch of lifeguards who constantly overstep their bounds and get caught up in exciting shenanigans. »
