    more appalling things happen to him and his life begins to fall apart The audience are left as desperate as Lance to discover exactly what has driven this seemingly reasonable and pleasant stranger to undertake such an awful gory and frequently poetic vengeance Sympathies switch between the two leads as more is revealed about Lance s past and the ending is as dark and funny as it is painful on many levels Occasionally wince inducing with a nice line in wry dark humour this is a clever idea made into a well constructed and entertaining film My first film of Sunday was Primal an Australian production involving yet another group of friends being killed one after another Personally I feel that if you re going to set off for a distant and unexplored area of the Australian Outback with no means of contact with the outside world and do things like go swimming naked at night in a dark and mysterious lagoon then you can t complain about ANY level of awful consequences Even when they are as silly as this At one point it seems our ostensibly intelligent leads are not only without communication but without even a knife between them Luckily someone remembers the machete which they have Left In The Car Not a dreadful film by any means with some amusing dialogue and an occasional tongue in cheek moment that works However glaring holes in the plot incidents that seem to have no relevance whatsoever and some poorly plotted scenes let this film down Nothing new and for that reason ultimately disappointing We Are What We Are was the big festival finale promoted as being the successor to Let The Right One In I m not sure the general public are ready to regard modern cannibals in the same darkly alluring light as they do ancient vampires however There is no denying that this film is beautiful to watch often engrossing and wears its pointed societal metaphors with pride However with such dark and disturbing leads it is difficult to feel a real connection with any of the characters and I found myself watching it without actually being truly engaged by what was happening on screen The drama never really reached the pitch it promised and I came away feeling that perhaps with tighter direction it might have been so much more Line Break By Sarah Jane Vespertine Sarah Jane Vespertine is a writer occasional poet and freelance thinker You can follow her on Twitter at twitter com essers Share Grimm Up North 2010 13 Hours Slice Chop Primal and We Are What We Are Tags 13 Hours Chop Grimm Up North 2010 Horror Movies Primal Slice We Are What We Are Comments are closed RECENT POPULAR TAGS Saga Django Unchained Disney and Lucasfilm Dracula vs Robin Hood vs Jekyll and Hyde 1 2 Star Trek Titan Fallen Gods Ted The Dark Knight Rises UK comics round up Nelson The Scarifyers Quick Doctor Who poll Doctor Who

  • Once More… Without Whedon. | Shiny Shelf
    for undoubtedly a catalyst for the boom in vampire romance novels like Twilight are part of the TV series continuity completely absent from the original movie Take Angel and Spike back out of the equation and there s the potential for the new Buffy to be a smart witty corrective to a trend the previous version was partially responsible for There s potential there especially with a recognised and respected brand name attached and for every hardcore Buffy fan insulted by the use of the title on a Whedon less movie there will be far more potential cinema goers whose interest will be piqued by the title of a TV show they vaguely recall liking or maybe just recognise as having been popular That Buffy is getting another shot is an indication of its success Whedon himself has said he hoped the character would have an afterlife albeit drolly adding that he hoped it wouldn t happen until after his own death and the speed with which Hulk and Punisher revisited cinemas after the previous versions flopped shows how tight the gap between revivals of a recognised property can be these days Arguing that it shouldn t happen is as futile as raging against the weather media rights holders wants the properties they own out there making money and a movie is a far bigger earner than DVD box sets and a few comics Of course it may not even happen The Scooby Doo movie languished in development hell for years and there s a lot that needs to turn a script deal into an actual film If the project gets through all the required hoops and ends up in cinemas a non Joss Buffy is hardly the end of the world A lot of the same people decrying this film project on twitter were often in adjacent tweets celebrating the 47th birthday of Doctor Who a series that s passed through many different production teams over the decades and seems to have done alright for itself Thanks to Jonathan Morris for the title of this article for further Buffy and Whedon related articles please click on the tags below Line Break By Mark Clapham Mark Clapham is a Devon based writer and editor You can find out more about him at the egotistically named markclapham com Share On the Buffy reboot movie buffy Tags Buffy Joss Whedon Movies Op Ed TV Vampires 2 Responses SK says November 24 2010 at 6 07 pm I think you ll find the TV series was mainly better than the film because of David Greenwalt s guiding hand as show runner Whedon s record without Greenwalt s help being shall we say patchy And yet he never gets any credit Jim Smith says November 26 2010 at 4 07 pm Interesting SK s David Greenwalt comment suggests that Whedon is about to hit the it was all actually his collaborators work phase of criticism that Roddenberry Serling Lucas JMS etc all went through

  • Grimm Up North 2010: Evil in the Time of Heroes, The Pack, Amer. | Shiny Shelf
    delight The Pack La Muete is a French film and starts with punky Charlotte driving down empty country roads towards a new life all her worldly goods packed into her old car After an unnerving encounter with some mouthy bikers she impulsively decides to pick up an attractive male hitchhiker Unfortunately they run into the bikers again at an isolated truckstop but are saved by the proprietress who seems to be a cross between Tubbs and Mrs Trunchbull Then Max the hitcher disappears into thin air after going to the bathroom Really we all know that picking up hitchhikers is never going to end well Charlotte s investigation into Max s disappearance ends with her locked in a cage potential food for a freaky gang of mutant dead miners This is a dark bleak atmospheric film with some nicely freaky monsters even if they aren t the werewolves the title might lead you to think However it s also nothing new I was disappointed by The Pack which has some nice elements but ultimately little tension and no real scares Ah and then there was Amer People use words to describe Amer like giallo existential surreal and profound when perhaps more usefully one could say shite I have to say I didn t like Amer I watched it promising myself that something would happen soon Something dark and avant garde It never did We follow the lead character as she moves through three phases of her life Her childhood in a dark and cloying Mediterranean house is interestingly weird but then she gets older Now we move onto lingering and overly clever shots of a girl who whilst attractive isn t doing much of interest Although we do almost get to see up her skirt quite a lot Throughout the film sounds dominate to an unreal extent This is interesting but distracting Colours are also enhanced with whole sections in blue green or red There are moments of intriguing disturbing beauty and occasionally Amer even verges on becoming a great film but then it wanders off again into pointlessness Substance and image ride langorously decadently over content whilst Amer tries its best to be surreal but really it s just empty Overlong self indulgent and dull watching Amer is like watching someone else s drug trip what might seem profound to them is actually just irritating to everyone else Line Break By Sarah Jane Vespertine Sarah Jane Vespertine is a writer occasional poet and freelance thinker You can follow her on Twitter at twitter com essers Share Grimm Up North 2010 Evil in the Time of Heroes The Pack Amer Tags Amer Evil in the Time of Heroes Grimm Up North 2010 Horror Movies The Pack Zombies Comments are closed RECENT POPULAR TAGS Saga Django Unchained Disney and Lucasfilm Dracula vs Robin Hood vs Jekyll and Hyde 1 2 Star Trek Titan Fallen Gods Ted The Dark Knight Rises UK comics round up Nelson The Scarifyers Quick Doctor Who poll
