Winter Ridge is rapidly becoming the little British movie that could! Having all ready picked up a bunch of awards on the circuit, The movie, its director Dom Lenoir, and cast are about to embark on a strong festival run through 2018 that will undoubtedly see the movie picking up more awards and critical acclaim… making the lads at British production company Camelot Films and up-and-coming powerhouse performer Matt Hookings, ones to watch.

Winter Ridge opens really strong with the harrowing sound of a car crash (props to the sound guy). You have no time to prepare for the story that is coming your way, instead the audience is just thrown in at the proverbial deep end. We

Sunset Song – Review

Photo courtesy of Magnolia Pictures

Sunset Song is renowned English director Terence Davies’ adaptation of Lewis Grassic Gibbon’s Scottish novel, a drama set in rural Scotland in the years just before and during World War I. Centered on a bright Scottish young woman named Chris, the film is a powerfully moving drama that is at once visually beautiful, in its depiction of the Scottish rural landscape, and realistic in its unblinking portrait of the harshness of working-class farm life and the devastating impact of war.

Agyness Deyn brilliantly plays the lead character, Chris Guthrie, whom we follow from her days as the brightest student in her rural school to her years as a young woman confronting the devastating horror of war from the home front. Chris is a girl who dreams of poetry and of becoming a teacher, and her kind-hearted mother Jean (Daniela Nardini) dotes on her gifted daughter,

Da Vinci's Demons season 3 episode 5 review: Anima Venator

In season 3, Da Vinci's Demons is getting harder and harder to follow...

This review contains spoilers.

3.5 Anima Venator

Da Vinci's Demons has been kind of problematic for me throughout its third season thus far. It seems like everything is different, all the ideas of the first two seasons are just scrambled up to make everything a muddled, grey mess. Are the Sons of Mithras the bad guys? Are the Labyrinth bad guys? Sure, when you look at the surface, it's the bad guys like Carlo Medici and Riario involved in the Labyrinth and the Sons of Mithras have Leo's old ally Al-Rahim Aka The Turk (Alexander Siddig) and the true pope, Francesco (James Faulkner). However, one side is fighting to defend Italy and the other wide is actively assaulting and killing the people of the peninsula and by extension the Catholic Church.

Stuck in the middle are Florence and its famous son,

Watch: First Trailer for Terence Davies' Period Drama 'Sunset Song'

"I am not frightened of you!" The official UK trailer has debuted for Terence Davis' new period romantic drama Sunset Song, about a daughter of a Scottish farmer coming of age during the early 1900s. Agyness Deyn stars as Chris Guthrie, and it's told as a sort of a triptych, with one segment focusing on her abusive father, the next when she meets and falls in love and eventually marries Ewan, played by Kevin Guthrie; finally, he goes off to fight in World War I and comes back shellshocked and violent, resembling her father. The cast includes Peter Mullan, Jack Greenlees, Niall Greig Fulton and Ian Pirie. This looks very powerful.

Who Needs Enemies Review

  • HeyUGuys
The gangster film is a staple part of the British cinema diet. Who can resist watching a few dodgy geezers shooting each other, whilst trading witty insults and still finding time for some banter and birds in between? Whilst the format of the genre has remained largely the same over the years, it was refreshed in the modern day through Guy Ritchie, who made a few solid films that have a fond place in the heart of many a cinema goer. The downside of this, however, is that it inspired an array of copycat films, from filmmakers who simply thought that jumping on the band wagon by adopting a certain style meant instant success. Enter Who Needs Enemies, perhaps the biggest culprit of them all.

This atrociously written, lazy film may as well be a collection of outtakes from every gangster film ever made, with scenes thought too poor to

Movie Review - Who Needs Enemies (2013)

Who Needs Enemies, 2013.

Written and Directed by Peter Stylianou.

Starring Emma Barton, Michael McKell, Ian Pirie, Kris Johnson, Tom Carey and Vicky Donovan.

Synopsis:

When local London gangster and ex-boxer Tom Sheridan agrees to hire his strip club out to lifelong friend and colleague Ian Levine he soon discovers the private party involves something so atrocious and unspeakable that it sparks a bloody feud between the two old friends and their foot soldiers in a story of morality, loyalty and betrayal.

When it comes to low-budget British movies, the gangster genre is always a popular route to go down. Thanks to the minimal financial requirements the genre demands, many independent filmmakers opt for narratives centred on fast-talking mobsters. With such a high quantity of these films, it takes something unconventional to set a new project apart from the crowd, and that’s precisely what Who Needs Enemies tries to do.

2 new clips from Redemption starring Jason Statham

This one is also known as Hummingbird on U.K. soil, and then transfered to Redemption, for some or other reason, other than the obvious of what the film's about. As if we couldn't get it. Nonetheless, the Steven Knight film opens in theaters via Lionsgate and is frontlined by Jason Statham, Ian Pirie, Vicky McClure, Siobhan Hewlett, Benedict Wong, Agata Buzek, Senem Temiz and Lee Asquith-Coe. In Redemption, reeling from a traumatic tour of duty in Afghanistan, Joey (Statham), an ex-Special Forces soldier, returns to London to face another kind of war: life on the streets as a damaged, homeless veteran.

Jason Statham Seeks Helps In New Clip For ‘Hummingbird’

Although making his debut in Lock, Stock And Two Smoking Barrels, Mr Jason Statham quite literally hasn’t working since Snatch in 2000, that’s 13 years of movies and he’s just hit 40 titles, pretty darn impressive really. It’s simple to notice that he’s a man who knows his genre and has been making the most, but with a growing respect.

For me, it was The Transporter in 2002 that really made people notice the Brit, and by the time he hit Crank 4-years later well, a star was born and I haven’t even mentioned Fast & Furious possibilities. Now we’ve got you another clip from a change in pace, but not in action we feel, for the Stath and it is all in the form of Hummingbird.

Here, he plays an ex-military man on the run who finds himself redemption by becoming an avenging angel. Check out the brand new clip here,

Dark New TV Spot For Jason Statham In ‘Hummingbird’

The man who might already be a British cult-legend, Jason Statham, continues to work, work, work and this time taking on Hummingbird. This looks like it has a lot of potential, and a rather great-looking neon effect, echoing the likes of Drive and Taxi Driver.

The film is written and directed by Steven Knight in his first major feature, Knight also wrote Eastern Promises so this should be brutal, in a good way. In Hummingbird, Statham plays Joey Jones, a homeless man on the run from a military court martial. But, you knew there’d be one, he’s a damaged ex-special forces soldier navigating London’s criminal underworld and then he seizes an opportunity to assume another man’s identity and transforms into an avenging angel. I say: Bring It On.

The only thing that worries me for it’s distribution is the name change that’s taken place in different countries,

Redemption a.k.a. Hummingbird given a new trailer & poster

Personally, I think Hummingbird had a nice ring to it as opposed to the new domestic title of Redemption for the Jason Statham action thriller. It was intriguing, and could have cemented the film into intrigued fans' minds better than Redemption, which comes off sounding like a film focusing on the priesthood. Moving on... The Steven Knight-written-and-directed film opens June 28th via Roadside Attractions, and also includes Ian Pirie, Vicky McClure, Siobhan Hewlett, Benedict Wong, Senem Temiz and Lee Asquith-Coe.

Statham Sparks As ‘Crazy Joe’ In French ‘Hummingbird’ Poster

We’re expected a more emotionally dramatic turn from Jason Statham with Eastern Promises scribe Steven Knight’s directorial debut Hummingbird. Although from the look if this French poster (blazing the alternative title of Crazy Joe), you wouldn’t think it was any different to his usual action output.

Hummingbird follows an ex-Special Forces soldier, Joey Jones, who has recently returned from Afghanistan but finds himself with a desperate position, along with his pregnant girlfriend, of being homeless and living amongst the garbage-filled back alley’s of London. However, after a run in with an urban gang he luckily finds work as an enforcer for the criminal underworld but reinvents himself as a nothing-to-lose vigilante when his lover’s body, carrying his unborn child, is found dumped.

Hummingbird is released in the UK on the 28th June and co-stars Vicky McClure, Benedict Wong, Siobhan Hewlett, Christian Brassington and Ian Pirie.
