[VFF '13] Delivering Hope in ChristCORE?

Published in Movie Reviews Written by

Tagline: “I Mosh for Jesus”

Christian punk rock music has existed since the ‘80s and its influence in the music scene is like a growing caterpillar just waiting to blossom. In ChristCORE, the scene is explored in current context by following two bands, Messengers, who are new to the scene, and Sleeping Giant, the superstars, as they tour through America’s Bible Belt. They are there to spread the word of God that should appeal to the younger generation of today, especially the rebellious ones.

Plays:
7pm Feb 4 (Vic Theatre)

A Not So "Sinister" Review

Published in Movie Reviews Written by

The titles of horror films these days tend to sum up the product with one word when it shouldn’t. In Sinister, due out on DVD and Blu-ray Feb 19th, the only emotion evoked is that the terror is lurking in the midst of normalcy. For the product to additionally say that this movie is produced by the creative minds of Paranormal Activity and Insidious only kills its potential. Sad to say, according to reports by Bloody Disgusting, a sequel may be in the works.

From Movie to DVD, Silent Hill: "A Revelation?"

Published in Movie Reviews Written by

Popcorn thrill-rides are often the style that most horror-themed movies these days aim for. And with Silent Hill 3D, the adventure is like walking through a fun house of terror. Some theatre-goers may be more inclined to laugh at the scares than get scared. At least with the home video release slated for Feb 12th, they can enjoy watching how the story from the first film influenced the second product.

Puppet Master X

Published in Movie Reviews Written by

The Puppet Master series has evolved to become a product totally different from its first few films. Instead of the murderous dolls that many fans loved in the original three movies, now released to Blu-ray in a less than stunning transfer, they are still humanity’s saviors in Puppet Master X: Axis Rising.

Hanna Movie Review

Published in Movie Reviews Written by

One part fairy tale and two parts action-thriller, Hanna aims to deliver a simplistic plot Kill Bill style. It asks the question of who’s the big bad wolf, who’s the prey and is grandma even important to this tale? No, this film is not a simple retelling of Red Riding Hood. It certainly has a quality that borrows from folklore.

My Soul To Take

Published in Movie Reviews Written by

Many opportunities are missed in Wes Craven’s latest, My Soul to Take. And for some, the money paid for this film is what some aficionados of terror will want back.

The Crypt

Published in Movie Reviews Written by

There’s one famous proverb and that is the dead tell no tales; and if that is true, it follows then that one must tell a story in his stead.

Resident Evil: Afterlife

Published in Movie Reviews Written by

Two guns, one sword and…a bunch of quarters? That’s all one needs to know in order to enjoy Resident Evil: Afterlife. But don’t expect any added bonuses from the genres it belongs to.

The Last Exorcism

Published in Movie Reviews Written by
The Last Exorcism is reminiscent of what Harry Houndini did after his mother died. He sought to expose the frauds who claimed that they could bring her back so he could talk to her one more time.

Paranormal Activity

Published in Movie Reviews Written by

With a tell-all title like Paranormal Activity, one would expect Oren Pelia’s debut film to be scary. Instead, it falls short of even being considered a movie one could wet their pants on in fear.

The Trotsky

Published in Movie Reviews Written by
No prior knowledge is required to see The Trotsky. However, if you know anything about this Russian revolutionary, this film is worth seeing for an echo of what this man did.

Once in a while, when the moon strikes blue, there’ll be a movie that’ll weave a unique world of dark fantasy for audiences to visit. In Ink, that realm is one of daydreams and nightmares.
