Cockneys Vs Zombies Review


Weak
It's impossible for this film to escape comparisons with Shaun of the Dead, another witty zombie comedy set in London. Although this one transfers the action from North London to the East End, where the undead prowl around the neighbourhood that has just hosted the Olympic Games. Which also lets the filmmakers play with that no-nonsense Cockney grit. The script has some very funny moments, and the cast is terrific, but the film is too inconsistent to be a classic.

The craziness starts when a construction crew opens a 500-year-old plague pit, unleashing flesh-chomping zombies. Oblivious to this, brothers Terry and Andy (Hardiker and Treadaway) are planning to rob a bank to get the cash to save their grandfather's nursing home, which is under threat from a property developer. Their team includes a safecracker (Ryan), a gun nut (Thomas) and a loyal idiot (Doolan), but their badly planned heist is derailed when they run into the undead. Now their goal is to rescue Granddad (Ford) and his pals (including Blackman, Briers and Sutton).

Cemetery Junction Review


Weak
There's a strong autobiographical tone to this British period drama, and the cast is very good. But by never focussing the story in a meaningful way, the film pales in comparison to its nearest predecessor, An Education.

In the Cemetery Junction area of Reading in 1973, Freddie (Cooke) is a young guy just starting a new job selling insurance while his best friend Bruce (Hughes) still works in the local factory and their goofy pal Snork (Doolan) makes announcements at the train station. Freddie clearly has ambition, and is happy when he runs into old flame Julie (Jones), who turns out to be the fiancee of his supervisor (Goode) and daughter of the company boss (Fiennes).

But both Freddie and Julie have doubts about heading into suburban respectability.
