Inception – Quickie Review

Plain and simple, this film is a giant mindf*ck. I don’t know how this movie failed to achieve Oscar nominations for Best Director and Best Editing. I love having think during films and this one makes you think on multiple levels concurrently. Amazing special effects and tremendous action choreography. Enthralling from start to finish.

Cane Toads: The Conquest – Quickie Review

A tongue-in-cheek documentary detailing the continuous westbound migration of cane toads across Australia and the devastation they leave in their wake. Extremely compelling, highly absorbing and very amusing. Even though these amphibians are tremendously destructive, they are amazing creatures. There are some crazy statistics in this film. Available on Netflix.

Let Me In – Quickie Review

A young teenage boy befriends a young female vampire as her guardian kills people to drain their blood to quench her blood lust. While not as good as the Swedish contemporary horror classic, Let The Right One In, it is still very good. Very creepy tone and it has enough original touches to make this …

Four Lions – Quickie Review

A group of bumbling British jihadists start training for a deadly terror attack. This movie is brutally funny and spirited performed. Brilliant script that makes the terrorists likable, but not once does it support what they are doing. The humour clearly lies in their incompetence not with their mission. Point of interest for some, Benedict …

I Saw The Devil – Quickie Review: 31 Nights Of Horror – Day 22 / Film #2

A grieving man repeatedly plays a brutal form of catch and release with a serial killer whom he suspects to have murdered his fiancee. An absolute master class in suspense. One of the best of its genre. The acting is off the charts good. Continually intense, cringe-inducing violence. It certainly wouldn’t be easy for everyone …
