    For me Rob Zombie has been a bit hit and miss as a director. When I heard 31 was a crowd raised low budget movie filmed in 20 days I expected the worst. Yes it has the Zombie tropes of being grimy, full of country hicks and with some extreme shaky cam and his wife in a leading role.

    Despite this I really quite enjoyed it. Imagine The Running Man remade by Zombie with added gore and some of the most offensive dialogue in a movie and you've got 31.

    A tight, tense gut churning thriller. It really kept me on the edge of my seat. A strong recommend from me!

    A film that makes jazz watchable is quite an achievement and yet Whiplash makes it look easy. An engaging story with fantastic performances all round makes this a real audio and visual treat. Jazz has a tendency for overlong self indulgent solos yet this is actually one of this films strengths. it's only January and we already have a film of the year candidate - remarkable!

    Excellent comedy horror which has as much laughs as it does tension. Great performances all round and some fantastic comic timing. It's just been revealed recently that this being remade for the US (WTF?) It's a New Zealand film it's not bloody Japanese! Let's hope the US version is as much of a screw up as the Old Boy remake was. Anyway check this one out, it's a little cracker.
