[VFF '13] Finding Cinematic Art in Mars et Avril

Friday, 08 February 2013 20:27
Published in Movie Reviews

The movie Mars et Avril (Mars and April) is visually stunning in a jazz-era inspired kind of way. It blends a world straight out of Blade Runner with props that belong to the 30’s. That also includes the strange instruments that the elderly Jacob Obus (Jacques Languirand) uses to perform his music with. They look like a cross between a bagpipe, a female appendage and a saxophone. As for how it gets played, Obus has to put his entire breath into it.

A Not So "Sinister" Review

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.

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

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

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.

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.

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

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

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

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.
