Jarmusch and vampires.....a very unusual combination indeed. But, when you think about it, Jarmusch's films are synonymous with death and so it makes sense that he would choose to focus on two lovers who have avoided it for centuries.

The opening scene is amazing, it really grabs you and brings you right into the hypnotic pace of the film. Those familiar with Jarmusch should recognise his distinctive style and sense of humour, and scenes full of atmosphere and devoid of action. Another feature of Jarmusch's cinema is the exceptional music in his films, and once again the soundtrack is brilliant. It's essential to the rhythm of the film.

I loved this film as I do all of Jarmusch's films. Only Lovers is very different from his previous work whilst it still retains some of his familiar traits. A beautiful and subtle love story.

My expectations for Rob Zombie's remake of John Carpenter's seminal horror classic 'Halloween' were quite low, but I was too curious to avoid it and I felt it deserved a chance. Carpenter's film will always remain one of the true classics of the genre and so any attempt to remake it should be considered a daunting challenge. Rob Zombie stepped up with all this baggage on board and delivered a very watchable and solid film.

The first 5-10 minutes of the original film, where a young Michael Myers brutally kills his older sister, is fleshed out to about 45 minutes and given a lot more context. In this remake, Michael Myers is humanised. His actions are depicted as being motivated by his environment. He is bullied at school, his mother is a stripper, his father is dead and his mother's boyfriend is a disreputable slimeball. However, despite trying to ground the characters' violent actions as a response to his surroundings, Myers still shows signs of being unhinged.


When you put the original film aside and look at this in its own right, I think it's a well-made film.

I completely disagree with all of the negative reviews this movie has gotten on rotten tomatoes. Sometimes the critics are wrong. Simple as. One of the better films of 2013 that I've seen so far.

And what an incredible cast!

Evil Dead (2013)
March.12th

A terrible remake of Sam Raimi's classic from 1981. A big problem for me was the way it tried to update the original by tacking on a "realistic" situation, where a group of friends go to a cabin in the woods with the intention of helping their friend's drug addiction. It lacks the grittiness and edge of Raimi's low-budget filmmaking style and it is far too polished.

Visually impressive and atmospherically there is something very intriguing going on. The music and the beautifully precise arrangement of colour and composition work in tandem to create a dark otherworldly space. It reminded me a little of Gaspar Noe's Enter The Void.

When this is considered in light of Winding Refn's previous work, it's clear that his vision gives precendence to visuals and atmosphere. These aspects are the director's strong point.

The question is: Does he manage to lure you into his atmospheric tapestry? His films will be either hated or loved. One thing's for sure. He's definitely not a mediocre filmmaker.
