Four Corners [ Hits:3822 ]
Review: Pollsmoor Prison is overpopulated and way beyond capacity, famous for Nelson Mandela's incarceration and infamous for its prolific gangsterism. A gang war has been raging for almost a hundred years between 'The Numbers', several prison gangs divided by their 26, 27 and 28 affiliations, exercising their rule by means of extreme violence. Their bonds extend beyond the prison walls to the Cape Flats, where it's unsafe to walk the streets, depending on which gang's tattoos you bear. This is the dan...

Four Lions [ 2010 ] [ Hits:4279 ]
Review: Terrorism and comedy... seem worlds apart in the news. When the 9/11 terrorist attacks on the World Trade Center took place, everyone froze in front of their TV screens as headlines called it a catalyst for World War III. Zeitgeist, a viral conspiracy theory film, raised questions as to some of the unanswered questions and slowly the news story reached a natural conclusion as the hunt for Osama Bin Laden continued in vain. Seems like yesterday, but it was almost a decade ago and many have ventur...

Free Fire [ Hits:6234 ]
Review: Free Fire is a crime thriller and dark comedy caper from Ben Wheatley, who seems to have been heavily influenced by stylish action directors, Quentin Tarantino and Guy Ritchie. The film is set in a Boston warehouse in 1978 as a meeting between two gangs turns into a bloody shootout and a game of survival. While never short on ammunition, he's armour-plated this single location vehicle with an ensemble including the likes of our very own Sharlto Copley, Brie Larson, Sam Riley, Cillian Murphy, Mic...

Free State [ Hits:2551 ]
Review: Free State is a South African romance drama from writer-director, Salmon de Jager. Known for writing Verraaiers, Roepman and Stuur Groete aan Mannetjies Roux, he turned his craft to directing with Musiek vir die Agtergrond and now Free State. His latest drama centres on a forbidden romance between Jeanette, a white Afrikaans girl, and an Indian man named Ravi during the Apartheid era in South Africa. Under the infamous Immorality Act, white and non-white people were prohibited from entering int...

Friday the 13th [ 2009 ] [ Hits:3825 ]
Review: Friday the 13th is a staple in horror movie history. The slasher film has come a long way and has struggled to break the vicious cycle of blood, boobs and boozing. Jason Voorhees, the masked psychopath is to slasher films what James Bond is to espionage and they both share one irritating trait... they just won't die! Jason has been decapitating teenagers for nearly 3 decades, with 12 movies under his belt. It's got to the point where you're probably wondering who's stupid enough to go camping at...

Friends with Benefits [ Hits:3452 ]
Review: Friends with Benefits stars Justin Timberlake and Mila Kunis, two up-and-coming Hollywood starlets. Timberlake's musical career launched him into fame and he's made a strong transition into film with roles in David Fincher's critically acclaimed, The Social Network and other movies like Bad Teacher and In Time. Mila Kunis has had a similar trajectory, taking a role in That 70's Show and propelling herself into film acting with an equally impressive turn in Darren Aronofsky's Black Swan, with app...

Fright Night [3D] [ Hits:4547 ]
Review: Fright Night [3D] is a comedy-horror movie remake of Tom Holland's 1985 cult classic. You know the VHS rental cover that used to scare you at the video store as a kid, the one with the massive vampire face laughing over a haunted mansion. Well, there weren't many big name actors in that, but now that the remake boasts 3D technology and a cast including: Colin Farrell, Anton Yelchin, David Tennant, Tony Collette and Christopher Mintz-Plasse, you could say that a remake was almost necessary.To rem...

Fury [ Hits:2035 ]
Review: Fury is a simple film masquerading as a complex animal. Writer-director David Ayer presents a cocky yet typical platoon war movie as a bunch of characters band together to form, storm and norm again as a new recruit gets initiated. The difference being that instead of being sent to Hell on amphibious landing craft, we're living, breathing and dying through a Sherman tank. We're treated to a World War II drama trying to match Saving Private Ryan for aural and visual majesty. While the soundtrack...
