OH JUST GIVE UP
Having said tearful goodbyes to our latest band of innocent intern dream-punchers, it’s left to the haggard founders to drag the tattered decorations of ORANGE WEDNESDAYS HURRAH out of storage, and hang them in the now silent corridors of Best For Film towers. It’s never the same, but WE MUST GO ON. Sigh. At least we’ve got Winnie the Pooh, eh?
This is Grimm Brothers lite for the Twilight generation: while the plot is satisfactory, it never does enough to explore the deeper, darker issues raised by the fairy tale, and it misses the opportunity to really exploit the horror element. One for those who fancy an entertaining thriller without the intellect.
Oh my shit, it’s April! And it’s brought along not only Fools’ Days, sweet spring showers and the prospect of some chinless wonder marrying a Sloane, but also a batch of fresh and steaming new films – some promising, others less so. Stick around as we sift through this month’s cinematic offerings week by week and separate the fresh fish (FRESH FISH, Glen Coco!) from the distinctly murky tuna salad…
Blackbeard trades his tricorn for a crown.
As if the first trailer-vomitus wasn’t enough to assure the free-thinking world that the cancer that is Twilight (and its associations) will inevitably defile the sanctity of all enduring traditions and literary archetypes, the second instalment of this nightmare only compounds the impending doom.
