Danny Trejo is awesome, but is the rest of Darkness Descends?

Danny Trejo is awesome, but is the rest of Darkness Descends?

Darkness Descends (or “Redemption: The Darkness Descending” as it appears in the film; because why have one perfectly good title, when you can have two – a hokey one, and a clunky one – separated by a colon?) stars my hero: Danny Trejo. Well, “stars”: he’s the headliner on the box because he’s awesome, but Darkness Descends is...

A mild consumer rant on DVDs and editing

A mild consumer rant on DVDs and editing

Originally published here. Something that I’ve never quite understood since the advert of DVDs is why I can watch the deleted scenes as separate sections, but I can’t switch on the setting that says ‘include these scenes in the main film when I watch it’. In a similar way, when watch a boxed set if DVDs, I don’t understand why I have to watch 60...

Blu-ray Review: The LEGO Movie

Blu-ray Review: The LEGO Movie

I never quite bought into the hype of The LEGO Movie when it hit cinemas back in February, but a revisit on Blu-ray has proven more rewarding than I ever anticipated. For starters, it looks divine in High Definition. It’s fluid and bright and gloriously colour-paletted, which makes watching it a total joy. The jokes, too, appeared to resonate and have...

DVD review: Vampire Academy

DVD review: Vampire Academy

Vampire Academy is like a vamped up version of Hogwarts. The students aren’t just there to learn magic, but to suck blood, brutally bitch about each other and learn to kick the shit out of lurking monsterised vampires called strigoi. It’s like a mix of Harry Potter, Divergent and Heathers – with fangs. At least the book is. The movie is directed...
