Tyrannosaur is a fucking tough film not for the fucking weak of heart. It's fucking gritty, fucking solid, fucking muscular with all the fucking veins popped out, with all the anger fucking loose!

My apologies there, I was simply following the theme of the film. You see even before the film starts proper, Joseph makes George Carlin spin in his grave by giving his 7 dirty words a two f... read more

Considine as director goes off to a flying start!

Let’s face it, there is always the release of at least one British film that is simply adored by critics but at the same time, is extremely underrated by the majority of the public. These films are mostly ones that are directorial debuts and perhaps aren’t entirely appreciated to start off with despite the critical acclaim. Anyway, in the case of Tyrannosaur, it is unfortunately another one of... read more

Emotionally devastating and rewarding, a study of desperate individuals with seemingly nothing to lose, "Tyrannosaur" is one to put on your watch list. Now. Featuring electrifying performances from Peter Mullan, Olivia Coleman, and the criminally underused Eddie Marsan, it is as riveting as it is disturbing and shocking.

Joseph (Peter Mullan) is a man seething with rage and conte... read more

Movies That Got a Strong Reaction (14 movies items)

"There are few movies that can reduce me to sobs and shudders with the finesse of "Tyrannosaur," a visceral heart-wrencher involving desperation and abuse. Paddy Considine grabs hold of your heart and doesn't let go, and the strength of the performances overrides any qualms you might have about the brutality of the whole operation. "

“Tyrannosaur is a fucking tough film not for the fucking weak of heart. It's fucking gritty, fucking solid, fucking muscular with all the fucking veins popped out, with all the anger fucking loose!

My apologies there, I was simply following the theme of the film. You see even before the film starts proper, Joseph makes George Carlin spin in his grave by giving his 7 dirty words a two finger salute. With that undying rage, Joseph gives a strong kick to his dog, Bluey, who dies almost immediately. This sets the harsh, all-too-real drama in motion. Joseph is a seriously flawed character with a rage inside him that rivals Wolverine in his "Berserker mode", and has a penchant for schoolboy bully violence. An unstoppable character pitted against an immovable world - yea, that pretty muc” read more

"Depressing, depressing, depressing. And in this case that's a good thing. Olivia Colman and Peter Mullan are both incredible and manage to make the painful subjects feel as painful as they should. "

New-to-Me Films of 2013 (520 movies items)

"A deeply distressing film, following the development and unraveling of two individuals on their search for redemption. The chemistry of the relationship between these two characters is what truly makes the film so great, as their lives parallel each other in opposite directions. The heart of the film comes with Olivia Colman, who puts on an effectively poignant performance as a truly damaged human being. The movie, as a whole, is undeniably depressing, but also very well-crafted and courageous i"
