I know here at THETRIBE.CO.UK we have a star scale for how good a movie is. Sure there are stunners (I’m pretty sure I gave The Dark Horse 5 stars) and they seriously earned those stars. I’m not even sure if I can do this, but I give 211, -5 stars. The stars it could have earned should go to The Dark Horse, giving it a grand total of 10 stars. Yes. That is how much I didn’t like this movie.
All and all, Pork Pie, was a great ride. I keep drawing comparisons to my other favorite film with a mini The Italian Job (the remake) – if you liked that check out Pork Pie, it’s got the same sort of feel between the action and the banter. It’s got a little something for everyone.
With a cool soundtrack and silliness throughout, Nice Package is a fun romp into the disastrous outcome of a professional thief’s so called ‘simple’ job. It’s just a shame that they didn’t give Dwayne Cameron more comedy to work with.
Fallen Stars is far from my usual go-to film, however, the journey about depression and the core sentiments of the story are all too familiar. Deep down we are all searching for a direction, for some form of purpose and meaning to our lives, and, even more importantly, for someone to share that journey with. I feel quite emotional at having taken that journey with Fallen Stars.
If you love the ‘found footage’ concept and accept that, even in the most dire circumstances, the human race is doomed to stand aside and film the carnage regardless if a burning house is falling down all around them (and to be honest, that isn’t far wrong), then you are going to find that THE TAKING OF DEBORAH LOGAN is a really solid horror film.
There are some great moments, and I think there’s a lesson in there somewhere about not wasting your life, but it gets lost among long drawn out banter about anarchism.
