Stonehearst Asylum

Year: 2014 Director: Brad Anderson Starring: Kate Beckinsale, Sir Ben Kingsley, Jim Sturgess, Michael Caine, David Thewlis Written by Nick Deal With an absolutely stellar British cast and a decidedly dark and psychologically thrilling aura, ‘Stonehearst Asylum’ was a film I was very excited to see. It had […]

Black Sea

Year: 2014 Director: Kevin Macdonald Starring: Jude Law, Scoot McNairy, Ben Mendelsohn Written by Chris Winterbottom I approached Kevin Macdonald’s ‘Black Sea’ with an air of optimism. I am an admirer of his work, considering ‘Touching The Void’ to be a great documentary, and films such as ‘State […]

Under The Skin

Year: 2014 Director: Jonathan Glazer Starring: Scarlett Johansson Written by Patrick Alexander As far as conjecture goes, the weirdest assumption to me has always been that famous actors and actresses hate being put on a pedestal and worshipped as something other than human. “We’re just regular people” the […]

Se7en

Year: 1995 Director: David Fincher Starring: Morgan Freeman, Brad Pitt, Gwyneth Paltrow Written by Chris Winterbottom Edited by Nick Deal I was first introduced to David Fincher’s ‘Se7en’ when I was about 14. To me, even at that age, I thought the film looked like an over the […]

Everest

Year: 2015 Director: Baltasar Kormakur Starring: Jason Clarke, Josh Brolin, Keira Knightley, Jake Gyllenhaal Written by Nick Deal When I sat down in front of the huge IMAX screen at my local cinema, I prepared myself for what I thought was going to be an adrenaline-fuelled, disaster movie […]

Child 44

Year: 2015 Director: Daniel Espinosa Starring: Tom Hardy, Noomi Rapace, Joel Kinnaman Written by Jakob Lewis Barnes I always look forward to a Tom hardy project, and with a supporting cast brimming with talent, ‘Child 44’ really had my interest, early on at least. But as we began […]

Blade Runner

Year: 1982 Director: Ridley Scott Starring: Harrison Ford, Rutger Hauer, Daryl Hannah Written by Jakob Lewis Barnes I’ve had a rather enjoyable time over the past couple of weeks, as I explore some of the iconic films I have yet to see. Scorsese’s ‘Goodfellas’ was, rather aptly, good. […]

No Country For Old Men

Year: 2007 Director(s): Joel Coen, Ethan Coen Starring: Javier Bardem, Josh Brolin, Tommy Lee Jones Written by Jakob Lewis Barnes Last week, I picked out six DVDs from my collection and made these films essential viewing over the next couple of weeks or so. These are films which […]
