J Law’s home renovation from hell
With imagery that your mind may well dwell,
Love or hate it – maybe true,
Tries too hard to please few,
Controversy is this film’s only sell.
Thanks to Mike for our first horror/musical review!
Camping kids, a slasher and singing abound,
Original killings and a few laughs can be found,
Meat Loaf and Minnie Driver do their best,
To give cred to this bloody songfest,
This horror musical is solid all ‘round.
Glazer mixes Species & Kubrick,
With Scarlett doing an alien Posh Spice schtick,
Hard work with some reward,
Film critics have adored,
This confusing but alluring sci-fi flick.
Mike reports back from SFF again with another cult pick:
A small town is this slow-burner’s setting,
For a family whose secret is getting,
So much harder to hide,
With young lives cast aside,
Brace yourself for climactic bloodletting.
Check it out yourself on the 12th of June at the Sydney Film Festival!
Kurt Russell and the crew are going mad,
It’s freakin cold, and there’s an alien in their pad,
Big trouble in little Arctic,
In this above the par flick,
Film two outta three things ain’t bad.
Adrian returns with another film from MIFF2012!
Something stinks in their trailer,
But their product’s no longer a failure,
If they get you alone,
You’ll end up blood and bone,
It’s Wolf Creek meets Gardening Australia.
In Gilderoy a director does back,
To smash produce.. to produce a soundtrack,
With smart camera angles,
And a plot ending in tangles,
It will confuse long after fading to black.
Mike is back with another destined for cult classic status
At first this appears so clichéd,
Five teens in the woods, all afraid,
But there’s more to be seen,
Than tits, ass and a spleen,
It explains why all horror is made.
Part doco, part zombie flick,
Cartoon gore from men zombie-sick,
And laughs I was hearing,
But not my favorite Fest pick.
Burton jumps on the vampire trend,
Bringing his wife and good friend,
The big cast underused,
Though Depp’s lines amused,
OK if it weren’t for the end.
