Jaime L (mx) wrote: Terrific zombie flick, certainly ranks with the greats with a great twist to the genre. Zombies on a train! Has the social commentary that used to come with these types of films and it blended really well with action. The main core of characters had personalities that made me care about their safety which is always an importance in any kind of horror film. The only real gripe I have with the film other than perhaps a familiarity with other zombie films like Dawn of the Dead (though this was very minor) is a certain scene towards the third act. I was saying to myself, "she's going to open the door isn't she?" 'Sure enough... What prevents this from getting to the 9/10 mark for me but Train to Busan is an entertaining watch and will most likely bump something out of my Top 10 of 2016 to make room. Need to watch again!

Simon S (nl) wrote: This was the worst, most pretentious load of absolute inane rubbish I have ever had the misfortune to watch. Luckily, however I managed to get my 3's worth (that's what it cost in Tescos) by watching 'the making of City Rats' in the extras part of the DVD. This was hysterical. The horrible, misogynistic and clearly sexually perverted director is on the biggest ego trip of his life and has managed to drag everyone else on this production along with it like some pied piper of doom. There are some great lines like 'I did some research - I'll miss playing Chris' (James Lance, the bloke with the bit part in Alan Partridge on his thoroughly embarrassing portrayal of an autistic homosexual - Hoffman you are most certainly not). 'I read a lot of shit scripts - but they are made into a success by big Hollywood actors' - Hussan. True... but this script is the most shit one ever and it's only got you in it so that's even worse. Danny Dyer said some really funny things too (in that sort of I'm trying to be a serious method actor kind of a way) and the guy out of that dull mid 90's asian family on Eastenders definitely got the top w*nker award but I've forgotten what both of them said right now and I can't face watching it again so you'll have to check it out for yourself.. My favourite quote however is from the 1st AD (I think it was) who said... 'This is the part of the DVD you watch when you've watched the film so many times and you think there must be something else on here to watch.' I suggest he reads the first review of this film I ever read which says... 'I would rather f*st my own dead grandmother than watch this film again.' What started as a thoroughly depressing waste of an hour and a half of my life turned into a hysterically funny evening (albeit helped by a half a bottle of Jack Daniels). Buy this DVD (but try and get it for less than the 3 I paid) and have a laugh at the expense of everyone's inflated and misplaced egotistical ramblings on the 'making of'. It just shows you what happens when a bunch of failed trustafarian film students in Notting Hill actually achieve what they have been threatening to do for the last 10 years once armed with daddy's cheque book.

The Movie G (es) wrote: Hot Rod is a Funny funny film that stars: Andy Samberg, Jorma Taccone, Isla Fisher, Bill Hader and Danny Mcbride. It's is a very funny and stupid movie at the same time that is very enjoyable to watch and if you are a fan of The Lonely Island you'll love this.

Stephen P (gb) wrote: It's Halloween, so why not revisit this absolute masterpiece of Horror. 'Saw', the film that birthed one of the most successful horror franchises of all time is definitely the best of the franchise and at its core just an incredible Psychological Thriller. When two men wake up to find themselves locked in a prehistoric bathroom they must work together to uncover why they are there, who put them there, and how they are going to escape. This is the film responsible for putting two unknown Australian writers on the map and kickstarting their very successful directing/writing careers. Directed by now legendary director James Wan and supported by a very talented cast including Carey Elwes and Danny Glover, Saw has you biting your nails and on the edge of your seat for just under 2 hours as you try to piece this mystery together. This idea started off as a short film clocking in at only 10 minutes that was written and directed by Leigh Whannell and James Wan. Once it was picked up to be turned into a feature length film they put their talents to good use and ended up with a film made off an insanely low budget, filmed and edited in only a couple of weeks, and turned a simple and concise plot into a slowly unraveling and compelling mystery. Every minute of this film is just as intense, thrilling, horrifying, and engaging as the last and it keeps up this level of intensity right up until the final credits begin. The fact that the majority of this scene takes place within the confined space of a single bathroom gives the film a very claustrophobic effect and you feel like you are just as trapped as the characters in the film. The way the trap scenes are filmed and represented with the sped up shaking camera and loud music gets across the chaos and emotions those characters would be feeling perfectly. The film constantly tests you by questioning what you think you know through flashbacks and proving you wrong time and time again as piece by piece the puzzle is revealed. This is where the psychological element of the film is in full effect as the film uses striking cinematography in combination with the performances to emulate fear, panic, and a real sense of urgency that eats at you the longer the film goes on. There is nothing pleasant about the story of this film or the content within as the use of blood and gore is there to further add to the discomfort you feel whilst witnessing many of the horrifying events that take place. Many people would label this film as 'torture porn' and an overly unnecessary and excessive display of blood, gore and violence. Most if not all of these people are looking at the franchise as a whole, in which they would be right. But when you consider the very gritty nature of this movie on its own and separated from the rest of the franchise it has a lot more meaning than just blood for the sake of blood. The performances in this movie from Carey Elwes and Leigh Whannell as Lawrence and Adam, the two men who find themselves chained to a pipe, were fantastic and you really buy into these characters and believe that their actions in this situation are very logical. It's easy to point out the stupidity of characters whilst kicking back on your nice warm couch, but i'm pretty sure if you were in that scenario you would not be as calm and ready minded. The desperation in their performances all adds to the building of tension you feel with every passing second. Even the performances from the supporting characters were great despite how small some may have been. Danny Glover, Dina Meyer, Michael Emerson, and even Shawnee Smith completely sold me on their characters and did a great job at making all of the scenes outside this room just as thrilling as those inside. As i mentioned earlier, this film managed to spawn 6 sequels unfortunately without the directing talents of James Wan. These films especially from 4 onwards go for a more blood and gore (torture porn) focus as oppose to a very intelligent Psychological Thriller focus. The presence of these films has most definitely tainted the importance of this first film and the thrilling mystery that unfolds throughout the film. But the best part is that this first film doesn't rely on the sequels in order to be understood. Do they add further story to the film? Yes, but nothing is stopping you from witnessing this masterpiece and stopping there as this film gives you enough closure to where you don't have to continue through to the last 3D instalment. So in the end, if you are a fan of the horror genre, love Psychological Thrillers and aren't turned off by a little gore, Saw is most definitely a film that needs to be checked out. If you have managed to avoid spoilers from the film regarding the reveals that take place then that is extremely impressive as i'd say it is very impossible at this point. But if you have done so successfully then i guess there is an added layer to this film for you to thoroughly enjoy. So as my third favourite film of all time there is no doubt this film deserves the greatest score achievable.10/10
