The Green Inferno - Teaser Trailer


When a team of enthusiastic New York students get involved in an activism campaign, they decide to take a field trip to the deep Amazonian rainforest of Peru in a bid to rescue an ancient tribe who are faced with the threat of dying out completely. However, once they arrive within the jungle, they crash and soon meet the tribal people they set out to save. Unfortunately, this community has other ideas and some of the group find themselves taken hostage and tied up. When they eventually realise that they have stumbled upon a tribe of cannibals, it looks like it's too late. Being so deep in the wilderness, it appears that no-one is going to be out looking for them anytime soon and so now they must make a desperate attempt to flee the green confines of the forest.

13 Sins Review


Good

Even if the premise is tired, this grim thriller holds the attention by focussing on the raw intensity of the characters' personal lives. It's also grisly enough to work as a bone-dry black comedy about a hapless guy who will do whatever it takes to protect his loved ones. But just a little more complexity in the story and characters would have helped a lot.

The film opens as nice guy Elliot (Mark Webber) is sacked from his New Orleans job at exactly the wrong time. Not only is he planning his wedding with his pregnant fiancee Shelby (Rutina Wesley), but he also helps support his retirement-age dad (Tom Bower) and mentally disabled brother (Graye). So when a stranger phones to offer him a place in a cash-bonanza game, he doesn't mind that the 13 tasks are increasingly deranged. It starts with killing a fly, but soon escalates to making a child cry, starting a fire in a church and desecrating a dead body. But if he wins, his worries will be over. Then he realises that he's not the only contestant.

Without a hint of subtlety in the script, we never have any questions about what is happening, what the moral implications are and where the story's going next. So there's no way to join in with Elliot's disorienting dilemma. Instead, there's nothing to do but sit back and watch. In another actor's hands, Elliot might have come across as an idiot who deserves whatever's coming, but Webber has a vulnerability that makes us care what happens, even as he does one stupid thing after another. His family seem eerily oblivious, but Ron Perlman adds some deadpan humour as a detective following Elliot's trail. And Pruitt Taylor Vince is on hand as his usual bug-eyed, shifty nerd who knows more than anyone else.

Hostel: Part II Review


Terrible
Let's lay the cards on the table: Hostel, to me, was one of the coldest, most blindly-conceived horror films to get released in years, basically acting as torture porn rather than an actual film. So, the fact that Hostel: Part II is more thuggishly ambivalent to thought and structure, more cold and condescending to its audience and its characters, and more wildly absurd in both tone and execution doesn't come as a surprise. To be honest, it makes sense that after two thoroughly fascinating horror experiments (Bug and 28 Weeks Later) are released that Hostel: Part II will easily make enough money to secure a third installment and will set the horror genre back a solid decade.

Basically, Part II is Hostel plus a B-cup. Three girls (Lauren German, Bijou Phillips, and Heather Matarazzo) are in Europe studying art. One of the models for the art course is a statuesque beauty (Vera Jordanova) who befriends the girls and starts a friendship with one girl that borders on lesbianism. Of course, the model gets them to go to a special hot springs and stay at a hostel. Shortly after arriving, the girls are drugged, dragged, and prepped for a slab or a death seat.

Starship Troopers 2: Hero Of The Federation Review


Terrible
Everybody likes a good fight, especially if it's in a galaxy far, far away. And on that score, the original Starship Troopers delivered. In spite of -- nay, in large part because of, its campy, tongue-in-cheek approach to the hard-boiled war genre, the sheer high-impact, bug-crushing carnage of the 1997 release captured the imaginations of America's violence-drenched youth and raised insect extermination to the level of high service to humanity.

Well, forget all that. Starship Troopers 2 is 91 minutes of tediously inane straight-to-DVD boredom. Directed by Phil Tippet, the animation brainiac who designed the Sean Connery-voiced dragon in Dragonheart, this unreasonably lame sequel offers virtually nothing in the way of either animation or direction. Or anything else, really.
