DVD Review: The Voices

(Written for Filmoria)


Ryan Reynolds is an actor known for his versatility… and by that, I mean that he’s had a handful of decent roles, one iconic role in a great high school comedy, a known passion for his role as Deadpool, and then some very poor role choices in between.

His role in the horror-comedy The Voices, however, is one of the best performances that you will see from him. Starring as a troubled, med-addicted (although seemingly normal looking from the outside) factory worker, The Voices sees Reynolds play the role of Jerry, a young bachelor who is dedicated to living a normal life and succeeding in his new job at the Milton Bathtub factory.

(Writen for Filmoria)

This week’s explosive episode, ‘Down Will Come‘, gets the pace of second series of True Detective back up to speed, as we’re left with a heap of dead bodies and only three detectives left standing.

Sunday Screen: Teaser, Trailer, Spoiler

(Written for Filmoria)

“Write about whatever annoys you”, I was told. So, since it’s my turn on Filmoria’s Sunday Screen rota this week, I want to moan about trailers.

Trailers are like the film industry’s Marmite: you either love them, or you hate them. And it’s no surprise really, since the line between a good trailer and a bad one is so thin that they’re usually more likely to ruin a film for you completely than they are to intrigue you a decent amount.

DVD Review: Love Is Strange

(Written for Filmoria)


Directed and co-written by Ira Sachs, alongside writer Mauricio Zacharias, Love Is Strange follows elderly couple Ben (John Lithgow) and George (Alfred Molina) who, after nearly four decades living together in lower Manhattan, finally tie the knot.

We’re yet to be bombarded by films scripted around the new laws of same-sex marriage, so it’s wonderful to see that one of the first films to be set around this long-awaited change is a meaningful drama full of depth, and not just a heartless comedy.
