Age Of Kill Trailer


During a foreign affairs mission, a specialist black ops team makes the wrong choice. Sam Blake (Martin Kemp) is ordered to kill their target in the streets, leading to a massive media backlash and the disbanding of his team. Back on home soil, Blake is trying to adjust to normal life. But when a sinister and unknown figure kidnaps his daughter and five other people, Blake is forced into a dangerous game. He has six seemingly unrelated targets, and six hours to kill them all - if he fails, takes too long, or misses a shot, the hostages lives will be at risk.

Soul Boys of the Western World Trailer


Spandau Ballet were one of the most iconic British bands of the 80s, incorporating style and image with catchy pop anthems and becoming a major part of the New Romantic movement. They sold more than 25 million records and landed three Platinum albums including their 1983 breakthrough 'True', as well as being responsible for the smash hits 'True' and 'Gold'. However, tensions in the band began to rise with increasingly inflating egos and brothers Gary and Martin Kemp venturing into acting with 'The Krays'. It was a cold break-up which didn't last as they reunited for another release in 2009 with 'Once More'. Now they're together again to discuss their music and relationship over the years at the Royal Albert Hall to coincide with the screening of their new documentary.

How To Stop Being A Loser Review


Weak
This British rom-com has enough energy to keep us watching even though it's not particularly funny or romantic. Fortunately there are enough bright sparks in the cast to distract us from the simplistic script and over-egged direction.

James (Phillips) is a geeky misfit who has a sign above his head saying "loser". Literally. After his friend Ian (Grant) commits suicide, he receives a message from him that challenges him to learn how to talk to women. His friends (Leonidas and Grezo) encourage him to try, starting with an awkward chat at Ian's funeral with his school crush Hannah (Atkinson). He then starts a mentorship with cocky motivational speaker Ampersand (Conway), a disciple of womanising writer guru Zeus (Kemp). But this will require changing almost everything about himself.

The Krays Review


OK
The Brits love their gangster movies, especially when they're about, er, Brits. Here we have a tale of twin brothers in the 1930s who, thanks to early traumas, ended up turning from upstanding youths into die-hard racketeers. This is their story (from childhood to incarceration), dutifully (and rather artlessly) chronicled on film. Not much to see here, move along.

Embrace Of The Vampire Review


Weak
You have to wonder what Alyssa Milano was thinking when she opted to take the lead role in the cheapie, borderline-sexploitation flick Embrace of the Vampire. Who's the Boss? had wrapped in 1992, and a few TV movies (including a turn as Amy Fisher in '93) didn't kick-start her film career at all. Embrace took her into the realm of B-movies and hard. She's topless for about half the film, though her character is supposed to be a virgin being seduced by a vampire for unknown ends on the eve of her 18th birthday. (Mind you, Milano already had a tattoo above her crotch, kind of ruining the "innocent" effect.) It's a miracle she came out of the funk, landing a cushy role in Charmed and a spokesperson job for 1-800-COLLECT. Way to go, Alyssa.

Sugar Town Review


Weak
Here's irony for you: Sugar Town is a movie about aged and washed-up rock stars in L.A.... starring aged and washed-up actors in L.A.! I mean, Rosanna Arquette? Ally Sheedy? Beverly D'Angelo??? Typical crap from the extremely untalented Allison Anders, who actually needed Kurt Voss to help her direct this meandering, self-indulgent, and meaningless tripe. Jade Gordon provides the only relief as a klepto wannabe, but that's hardly reason to watch this piece of junk.

Sugar Town Review


Weak

"Sugar Town" is a hastily thrown-together, satirical showbiz dramedy concerning washed up '80s rock stars learning generic life lessons about responsibility, trust, fidelity and aging gracefully, and it wouldn't be interesting at all if it didn't feature a curiously appropriate cast.

John Taylor (late of Duran Duran), Michael Des Barres (The Power Station), Martin Kemp (Spandau Ballet) and John Doe (X) are all uniquely qualified for their roles as four former pop icons trying to stage a comeback with a new band and lousy record no label will touch.

One has become a semi-rural family man, tempted to go back on the road (and to cheat on his pregnant wife) by a sexy Tejano singer (Lumi Cavazos). Another has an acrid, 11-year-old punk in bad '80s make-up (what 11-year-old boy wears makeup?) left on his doorstep by a groupie who claims he's the father. Another has become a small-time drug dealer, and the last is desperately clinging to his faded sex appeal, not realizing how pathetic he looks to the 19-year-old girls he comes on to in bars.
