Green Room review

By David Dent

Jeremy Saulnier’s follow up to 2013’s Blue Ruin takes the intensity of that movie and ramps it up to 11. A hardcore band is booked to play an out of the way club in Oregon. 279 more words

Green Room (2015) / **** ½

If you’ve read my reviews for any length of time, you’ll be aware that I have a tendency to bring up Roger Ebert’s first rule of movies: “A movie is not about what it is about; it is about how it goes about it.” It’s an essential rule for any serious film fan or cinephile to remember, and one that often shapes my reactions to films. 756 more words

The Purge (2013)

2016.31: The Purge (TV, Film 4)

The Purge is another near-future dystopia rather like The Hunger Games series. On one night every year the citizens of the United States go on a murder/rape/whatever-goes spree without any fear of criminal prosecution, the theory being that by thus exorcising them of all their pent-up frustrations and violent rage they can be law-abiding citizens the rest of the year. 580 more words

Assault On Precinct 13 (1976)

During his heyday John Carpenter was a master of cinematic suspense and this story of urban violence ranks as one of his best. A deserted police station is laid siege to by a fanatical gang out for blood when one of their number is killed by a man hysterical with grief when they casually murder his young daughter. 184 more words
