  • Pulp: a Film About Life, Death & Supermarkets 2014

    ★★★★★ Watched 25 Jul, 2014

    This is a fantastically unconventional portrait of one of Britpop's most unconventional groups.

    i was happily surprised to see how successful the…

    ★★★★½ Watched 10 Jul, 2014

    Rod Serling would be proud.

    This is a film worthy of the Planet of the Apes legacy in every way and it takes it sci fi morality tale as serious as an ape attack. Director Matt Reeves has exceeded the high expectations with a tight film and using a powerful score by Michael Giacchino and seriously mind blowing, next level special effects.

    Who would have guessed that the James Franco Planet of the Apes prequel would give proper rebirth to…
