On the edge of the 30th anniversary of punk rock, Punk's Not Dead takes you into the sweaty underground clubs, backyard parties, recording studios, and yes, shopping malls and stadium shows where punk rock music and culture continue to thrive. Thirty years after bands like the Ramones and the Sex Pistols infamously shocked the system with their hard, fast, status-quo-killing rock, the longest-running punk band in history is drawing bigger crowds than ever, "pop-punk" bands have found success on MTV, and kids too young to drive are forming bands that carry the torch for punk's raw, immediate sound. Meanwhile, "punk" has become a marketing concept to sell everything from cars to vodka, and dyed hair and piercings mark a rite of passage for thousands of kids.

Made in Dagenham takes us back into this little pocket of the world, brings the place to life, makes us invest in the characters (through a series of excellent performances from both the lead and supporting cast), and brings to light a story I, for one, had no knowledge about in a way that was both very powerful and deeply moving. It manages to handle a series of plot points without ever becoming overstretched, and I defy anybody not to end the film smiling, with a real sense of pride in what they had achieved. There are a few points in the film, however, where you could see it on the verge of tipping over into over into over-sentimentality or maybe making it a bit too simplistic and easy (the most blatant of these was when a Union delegate stands up and asks to hear what the ladies have to say...cue speech), but the tone of the film, and the amount of real emotion it displays (and you have invested within it) mean that on every twist and turn you are still totally with it, and that is a real credit to those in front of, and behind, the camera. Overall then, this is a little gem of a movie, that should serve as inspiration to all who see it, as well as a thoroughly entertaining watch.

Jason J (nl) wrote: A great little French drama/horror movie set in a prison. 4 prisoners find an old diary which has been wedged inside the wall of their cell. It contains some strange drawings and the text is in a couple of different languages. They find out that it belonged to a prisoner in the 1920's who used dark magic spells to escape from his cell. They decide to try and recite the spells inside the journal for their own means of escape.A very intriguing atmospheric movie. I'd read that this was a horror movie but it's more of a mystery one dealing with the occult more than anything else. There is a little bit of gore but not a lot. Despite the fact that the whole movie takes place inside a claustrophobic cell you never get bored watching it. The characters are all interesting and you root behind them in their quest to escape. I love the brilliant twist at the end, very unexpected. Malefique is an effective chiller despite the slow start. Stick with it and you'll find that it does deliver.
Steven C (ru) wrote: Jonathan Demme's long forgotten 1986 gem "Something Wild" is a truly engaging experience. The film rockets along at a speed and tempo that I have never quite seen matched. Demme deftly combines the 'and then..." free form storytelling with a largely deterministic feel to create a film that works as a romantic comedy and a thriller and still manages keep a moral center without being showy. The performances are spot on with Jeff Daniels and Melanie Griffith having the definition of unforced chemistry. "Something Wild" is nothing but terrific, well made, clever entertainment.

Carlos M (gb) wrote: A refreshing debut for Joseph Gordon-Levitt as a filmmaker, who delivers a solid script that holds a lot more to it than you might think and directs it with a very firm grip reflected in the strong performances that he and the rest of his fine cast put in.
