Maps To The Stars – trailer

Posted in Film, Movies with tags , , , , , , on September 27, 2014 by dc


David Cronenberg‘s latest film, Maps To The Stars is out in UK cinemas now. It’s kind of flown under the radar somewhat and reviews seem to have been mixed. Julianne Moore is usually a sign of quality though and I always enjoy a delve into Cronenberg‘s peculiar mind. Check out the trailer below:

Low Down follows the life of pianist Joe Albany from the perspective of his young daughter, as she watches him contend with his drug addiction during the 60s and ’70s jazz scene. It should be getting a release very soon after decent reviews earlier in the year on the film festival circuit. As yet though, there’s no official release date. Check out the trailer below:

Next month a brand new British horror film hits selected cinemas across the UK. DementaMania tells the tale of frustrated office worker, Edward Arkham, who’s life takes a turn for the worst when he’s is stung by a mysterious bug. The sting and resulting rash unlocks the door to a secret world inside his head causing nightmarish fantasies to manifest themselves within vivid hallucinations.

Billed as somewhere between the yuppie gruesomeness of American Psycho and the hallucinatory madness of Jacob’s Ladder, DementaMania is directed by Kit Ryan and gets released on the 17th October. Check out the trailer below:

Hot Tub Time Machine 2 – trailer

Posted in Comedy, Film, Movies with tags , , , , , , on August 17, 2014 by dc

I love a stupid comedy. Dumb & Dumber is one of my all time favourite films and I can’t wait for the sequel in November.

As daft comedies go, 2010’s Hot Tub Time Machine was up there. It wasn’t great, but it had plenty of belly laughs and sat somewhere inbetween a Farrelly Brothers film and a Will Ferrell vehicle – except maybe not quite as great as that sounds.

I didn’t expect a sequel though. It did well at the box office but I still didn’t see a sequel coming. John Cusack seemingly didn’t like the idea either, so he’s jettisoned – but I still think the trailer below looks pretty funny – it seems like a bit of mess but I still chuckled – see what you think:

Hot Tub Time Machine 2 is out in the US and the UK this Christmas.

Robin Williams – illustration

Like so many I was saddened to hear about the passing of Robin Williams this week. As a small tribute I decided to dedicate an illustration to his memory. A sombre, wonky ‘thank you’ for all the laughs…
