Moodboard: Brolin

Producer/singer/everything-er Brolin‘s ‘Swim Deep’ is an incredible penso-banger: a metallic autumn sort of a track, perfect for late afternoon blue hour strolls in the crisp industry of cold winds. We loved it so much we had him compile a moodboard of the surprising influences that go in to making

Film Review: The Sweeney

Adapted from the cult show from the 70s, The Sweeney is a police drama about testosterone filled tough as nails police, who ignore the rules and get hassled by the ones behind desks who’ll only get in the way. Except now in 2012, and with far higher production values, maybe …



Film Review: Lawless

Based on a novel, written by the grandson of one of the bootlegging brothers featured, Lawless is the gangster film adaptation of The Wettest County in the World. The world it shows succeeds in seeming both authentic and looking spectacular; it features a great cast, on good form, yet it …



Film Review: The Possession

The latest in a long line of demonic possession films, including The Exorcist, The Exorcism of Emily Rose and The Last Exorcism, The Possession’s main deviation is that it doesn’t feature “Exor” in its title and it features a shifty, haunted wine box. The rest is fairly standard, which can …



Film Review: Battleship

The recent history for American action films based on Hasbro toys didn’t inspire a great deal of confidence for Battleship; GI Joe and the Transformers trilogy were bad, and in the Battleship trailer there were plenty of visual similarities to those. Though maybe doing a film based on a …

Marley Movie Musing

It’s a cheap unimaginative way to start a review, but I’m going to say it anyway: If you see just one movie this year, please make sure it’s Marley.  Like most people I have his greatest hits album, Legend, on my ipod, and can recognise Three Little Birds within a …
