Taking a Break.

Taking a Break.

Hi.

As you can see from the title; I’m taking a break from film reviews.

I’ve got a lot of other stuff happening as I try to get my composing career off the ground.

I’m still watching (and enjoying) films; in fact I’m almost caught up on all the Oscar nominations, and they’re all great in their own right. I just can’t find the time to write about them.

Here’s a little update, though: Continue reading “Taking a Break.”

Star Wars: The Last Jedi (2017) – Review

Star Wars: The Last Jedi (2017) – Review

★★★“The most divisive Star Wars film yet.”

The Disaster Artist (2017) – Review

The Disaster Artist (2017) – Review

★★★★ – “Franco disappears into his greatest performance as the mysterious Tommy Wiseau.”

The Disaster Artist is directed by James Franco and stars Dave Franco, James Franco, Seth Rogen, Paul Scheer, Alison Brie, Ari Graynor, Josh Hutcherson and Jacki Weaver.

The Acid Sorcerer (2017) – Review

The Acid Sorcerer (2017) – Review

★★★ – “A chaotic, depressing mess.”

The Acid Sorcerer is written & directed by Dakota Bailey and stars Dakota Bailey, Larry Bay, Nick Benning and Fred Epstein.

The Acid Sorcerer is a dark and nihilistic horror film that borders between fiction and reality. (18 cert; 49 mins)

Verdict; The Acid Sorcerer isn’t awful by any means, but I do think it’s supposed to be viewed like that. The subject is awful, and so the film gives us a glimpse of that awfulness. I’m torn; I’m not certain if I liked it or not. But what I can say is that it does show the brutal impact of drug addiction, wrapped tightly within its horror genre.

Hello… Here’s a quick update.

So, I’m now writing for UK Film Review.

I’ll still be posting reviews on this blog, but UK Film Review is where my focus is at the moment. Continue reading “Hello… Here’s a quick update.”

Moana (2016) – Review

Moana (2016) – Review

In Ancient Polynesia, when a terrible curse incurred by Maui reaches an impetuous Chieftain’s daughter’s island, she answers the Ocean’s call to seek out the demigod and set things right.
