Horns Review


Good

With his most stylish film yet, horror specialist Alexandre Aja takes a wildly irreverent approach, packing the screen with rude humour, visual flourishes and spiky characters. But it's assembled in such a rapid-fire way that it's difficult to get a handle on anything, which makes the movie feel like a series of outrageous set-pieces without a coherent plot to hold them together. The likeable actors help bring their characters to life, but the film is too hyperactive to let us engage with any of them.

It's set in a small town near Seattle, where Ig (Daniel Radcliffe) is in shock after his childhood sweetheart Merrin (Juno Temple) was violently murdered. Then he becomes the prime suspect, and the media have a field day. So he hires his lifelong pal Lee (Max Minghella) as his lawyer, partly because he's the only person in town who believes he's innocent. This includes Ig's parents (James Remar and Kathleen Quinlan) and brother (Joe Anderson). As the situation continues to deteriorate, Ig suddenly discovers that horns are growing on his head and no one seems very shocked by this. They also seem unable to lie in his presence, so he decides to use this to find out who really killed Merrin. Along the way he gets a shocking glimpse into what everyone in town really thinks about each other.

The film is an assault on the senses, as Aja packs every moment with outrageous sights and sounds, encouraging the actors to sometimes drift over the line into broad slapstick. He also fills the screen with religious imagery, including churches, crosses, pitchforks and snakes, all hinting that Ig's transformation is connected with his loss of faith. Or maybe it's just part of the film's jokey attitude. But as pieces of the central mystery slowly fall into place, the movie seems to become looser and less coherent. Even when the real villain is identified, there's still at least half an hour of flashbacks and revelations, confrontations and conclusions, none of which are particularly surprising or satisfying.

Horns - Alternative Trailer


Following the mysterious death of his girlfriend, Merrin Williams (Juno Temple), Ig Perrish (Daniel Redcliffe) wakes up from with a hangover and no recollection of the night before. When horns begin to steadily grow out of his head, and the local people begin to believe that Perrish is guilty of raping and murdering Williams, Perrish decides that the time has come to find his girlfriend's killer, once and for all - so that she may finally rest in peace, and he can save both his name and his soul from eternal damnation.

Ig Perrish wakes up after a particularly drunken night with a very sore head - though, as it turns out, this is no ordinary hangover. He finds that he is somehow growing horns from his tempes, following the brutal murder of his girlfriend. Having been the prime suspect in the case, the media are swamping him everyday since he was absolved, and it seems no-one actually believes he was really innocent. Checking out his new growths, he visits one of the few friends he still has but is amazed to see that she neither looks surprised or troubled by them. As the day goes on, he visits a doctor, but soon discovers that everyone appears to be being painfully honest with him about their private thoughts - and not only that, but he seems to have to power to control their actions too.

Quentin Tarantino's The Hateful Eight: Who's Playing Who?


Quentin Tarantino Samuel L Jackson Tim Roth Walton Goggins Amber Tamblyn James Remar

Quentin Tarantino recently hosted a live read through of the screenplay for his latest film The Hateful Eight, which by many accounts heralds in a return to the earlier work in the oeuvre of the claustrophobic Reservoir Dogs rather than the grand-scale theatrics of such recent work as Django Unchained.

Tarantino Gives SpeechThe filmmaker has been elusive about whether The Hateful Eight would ever get made.

The read through itself came as a response to the actions of alternative news website Gawker, who published a link to an online copy of Tarantino’s screenplay for the film. Suitably enraged, the pop-culture infatuated auteur not only sued the website but also threatened to postpone the film indefinitely. Thankfully, Tarantino’s rational irritation has subsided, and his official read through also saw the first reveal of the film’s impressive cast in the hope of offsetting a host of rumours and hear-say surrounding the film.

Dexter could potentially have a spin-off if hints by producer Showtime's entertainment president David Nevins are anything to go by.

Michael C. Hall
Michael C. Hall at Showtime's celebrations of 8 seasons of Dexter held at Milk Studios in L.A.

The series, now in its eighth and final season, follows Dexter Morgan a serial killer with a code of conduct. Dexter, working as a blood splatter analyst for Miami police, is able to kill those who break the code often taking police cases from them and dealing harshly with the perpetrators. After wrapping his victims (or criminals depending on how you view it) in cling film he stabs them through the heart, all the time narrating his bizarre logic.

‘Dexter’ Season 8 Premiere Recap – Missing Brains, Harry’s Code, A Stabbing And Substance Abuse. Dexter’s Back!


Jennifer Carpenter David Zayas James Remar Charlotte Rampling Lauren Velez Aimee Garcia Desmond Harrington Julie Benz Yvonne Strahovski

A quick re-cap of season 7: Deb (Jennifer Carpenter) now knows Dexter is a serial killer; Deb killed LaGuerta (Lauren Velez) and it was all very, very messy at the end of last season. But this is the last season, the last 12 episodes which will tie up the loose ends and we'll finally find out if Dexter will fly or fall. 

The episode is called 'A Beautiful Day' and in Dexter's world it most definitely is. It is six months on from La Guerta's death which has made sure Dexter's safe - for now. Everything is going well with Hannah McKay, Dexter's girlfriend and serial killer in arms. Dexter turns up, after romping around with Hannah for a while, to a bench dedication in honour of LaGuerta.

The Cotton Club Review


Good
Gangsters, tap dancers, and jazz musicians collide, in Francis Coppola's rather maligned tale of the famed Harlem jazz club during the Prohibition era.

Starring Richard Gere as a cornet player-cum-movie star (Gere even plays his own solos in the film) and Diane Lane as a kind of singer/hooker/kept woman, the film gets off to a wild start, throwing us into Coppola's archetypal world of violence and betrayal. Gere and Lane have an uneasy romance, the problem being they are low on the totem and the gangsters who control them wouldn't care for any such hanky-panky.

The Warriors Review


Excellent
There are certain films that by some unforeseen circumstance tap into a generation, a culture, a time, perfectly. The Warriors is just such a film. It is by no means a perfect movie. It is well crafted and dramatic, but what moves it beyond cult adoration and fanboy drooling is its epic storyline and intensely rendered narrative.

The Warriors isn't really a movie about a gang trying to get home. It's an archetypal tale of survival, of revenge, of power and corruption and the human spirit. Sounds like a load of over-educated/under-paid horseshit, I admit. But The Warriors really does have that kind of power.
