Review: Drive Rescore‏

Review: Drive Rescore‏

The One Where Cliff Martinez Is A Real Human Being And A Real hero For Staying Away Any excuse to write about Gosling, right? For anyone outside of the UK you may not know but Drive was shown last night, with a totally new soundtrack. New score. New songs over every scene. Presumably part of a new series, the idea is to replace iconic soundtracks with new...

Review: Fury – “My favourite war movie ever”

Review: Fury – “My favourite war movie ever”

The One Where Brad Pitt Drags My Sorry Ass Out Of Retirement Prologue: (Skip to Chapter 1 for the actual film review. The prologue is essentially about me making love to a beautiful woman). Well, it’s been a while. Thankfully, writing film reviews is a lot like making love to a beautiful woman – so I’m back in the saddle. Or back in the tank...

@Maverick99sback says RoboCop 2014 deserves your respect, Creep

The One Where Robocop Is SO Much Better Than You’ve Been Led To Believe, (And Will Ever Be Allowed To Believe Too) I’m in a bit of a quandary. Alan Simmons has already nailed LFF’s review of Robocop. (HERE). I’m compelled to chime in with why you should be going to RoboCop. I feel like I have too. After tweeting the below, late last...

Adam Truscott Says Wolf Of Wall Street and 12 Years Are Stone Cold Classics

Adam Truscott Says Wolf Of Wall Street and 12 Years Are Stone Cold Classics

The One Where Scorcese Out Scorcese’s Himself, Making January 2014 The Best On Record I sat still in the cinema when Wolf Of Wall Street (Herein: Wolfstreet) finished. As the end title cards turned into a mash up of McConaughey’s brilliant uh-uh-huh ritual (apparently his real voice training he does pre-scenes), I felt a bit empty. Maybe it was a...

Adam Truscott Tries Again With American Hustle

Adam Truscott Tries Again With American Hustle

The One Where Adam Truscott Explains How His Original, (And Better), American Hustle Review Was Possibly Abducted By Aliens  In a moment eerily similar to studios burying film stock, my review of American Hustle has vanished. It’s been buried to the annals (!) of time. Soon to be considered the cultish of cult film reviews – for a site that is the...

Adam Truscott Says Filth And Captain Phillips Have Restored His Faith In Films

Adam Truscott Says Filth And Captain Phillips Have Restored His Faith In Films

Remember the scene at the end of Big Trouble In Little China? Jack Burton — so excited — so pent up with aggression, rage and general heroism, shoots the ceiling to get the fight started. He then gets knocked out by the falling bricks and the camera elegantly cuts back to him — mid fight — to see him still out for the count. Thats been...

The World’s End Is Semi-Skimmed-Spaced, So Says Adam Truscott

The World’s End Is Semi-Skimmed-Spaced, So Says Adam Truscott

The One Where Semi-Spaced Is Better Than No Spaced At All The World’s End is a miracle. It may be the closest we ever get to another Spaced. And for that, we need to embrace it. Much like we did Hot Fuzz – and much like most of you overdid for Shaun Of The Dead. The second part of my double bill with The Wolverine, I really wasn’t fussed. And...

Adam Truscott Says The Wolverine Ain’t Bambi After All

Adam Truscott Says The Wolverine Ain’t Bambi After All

The One Where I Defend The Wolverine (And Last Stand), Then Run For The Hills With Logan I can keep this mercifully brief due to us already having covered Wolverine HERE. If you want a one-liner, I’d say go see it. And beforehand I never thought I’d be recommending it. Well that’s a relief. I went in to a double bill fearing the worst, and...

Only God Forgives Is Adam Truscott’s Favourite Gosling Film This Year

Only God Forgives Is Adam Truscott’s Favourite Gosling Film This Year

The One Where Gosling Wants To Fight Only God Forgives has cult film stamped all over it. CULT. It’s probably stamped in blood, following a single swipe from a steel blade. Such is the clinical style of a film that just can’t find an audience. I, of course, loved it. I was always going too. Crime films are my genre. Throw Gosling in, too (far more...

Adam Truscott Says Pacific Rim Aims For Top Gun But Hits Hot Shots

Adam Truscott Says Pacific Rim Aims For Top Gun But Hits Hot Shots

The One Where Del Toro Shows Everyone Michael Bay Wasn’t So Useless After All I’ve just read that someone thought Pacific Rim was better than Star Trek (2) and Man Of Steel. I’ve then spent the last five minutes cleaning my MacBook with an eCloth, after I spat my Fosters out over said comment. Because that comment, dear reader, is mental. Now...
