The Quest

December 30, 2005

 The Quest

Boobs, beer and bad language. Sounds like the perfect male dominated night out, and The Quest pretty much is, but with a storyline hidden somewhere in the depths of vomit and unsavoury behaviour. This documentary film shows us the shallower side of American... 

The Machinist

 The Machinist

After seeing Christian Bale all buff and beautiful in American Psycho (2000), it comes as quite a shock to see the physical transformation he underwent for The Machinist (2004). No trickery was done with CGI or make-up to convey his gaunt, emaciated appearance....

 Casino: Anniversary Edition

Casino (1995) was Martin Scorsese’s first attempt at a big budget, studio-backed epic. He would take the style and structure of GoodFellas (1990) and expand it on a much more ambitious level. Many criticized Casino as GoodFellas Part 2 but this is merely... 

The Jacket

 The Jacket

Like the similarly themed The Machinist (2004), The Jacket (which was released in the same year) is all about the fractured perception of its protagonist. Jack Starks (Brody) is a U.S. soldier badly wounded in the first Persian Gulf War that resulted... 

Vital Signs

December 21, 2005

 Vital Signs

Made in 1990, Vital Signs still carries residual of the ‘80s with its cheesy soundtrack. The film follows the trials and tribulations of several third year medical students as they compete for limited internships and to do so they have to earn enough...

 Batman The Animated Series: Volume 3

Batman lay dormant on the animated front during the 1980s. It wasn’t until the commercial success of Tim Burton’s films that Warner Bros. green-lighted an animated series. Bruce Timm and Eric Radomski were chosen to work on the new show based on concept... 

Dracula III: Legacy

 Dracula III: Legacy

Move over Blade, there is a new vampire franchise in town. Tired of slick, over-produced horror movies like Underworld (2003)? Look no further. Dracula III: Legacy (2005) is the latest installment in a surprisingly durable franchise. Director Patrick... 

The Ice Harvest

Prozac Nation

December 10, 2005

 Prozac Nation

Based on the autobiographical novel by Elizabeth Wurtzel, Prozac Nation (2001) has had a troubled past. Intended for release in 2001, Miramax buried it when Wurtzel made some controversial remarks about 9/11 and then criticized the film itself. Some reports...
