Don’t Ask Don’t Tell was the official United States policy surrounding gay and lesbian members of the military. ‘Burning Blue’ explores the relationship between two men, set in that period circa 1994 in a film that has been dubbed by the Internet as ‘Top Gear meets Brokeback Mountain’.

DMW Greer steps behind the camera to direct this one, which is based on his critically acclaimed play of the same name. Written in 1992 and first shown at The King's Head Theatre on London’s Fringe, the play was a huge hit, and has been in development for the silver screen since 2010.

Burning Blue Trailer

Daniel Lynch is a high ranking Navy fighter pilot and a respected member of the squadron; possibly one of the last people anyone would think of as becoming the subject of a scandal. However, he is harbouring a deep secret that only comes to light when he is discovered to be having a homosexual relationship with fellow aviator Matt Blackwood. This all comes about in the midst of a government investigation which has been launched to determine the cause of two fatal aircraft accidents believed to have come about over suspicious circumstances. Suddenly, Lynch and Blackwood find themselves treated like criminals as their relationship becomes the main subject of the investigation. Lynch's best friend Will Stephenson is hurt by their secret, while everyone else is doing what they can to quash this scandal before Naval reputations become tarnished.

How To Deal Review

You could take a camcorder to the mall, videotape strangers at random, and end up with a better movie than Mandy Moore's How to Deal. Soggy and melodramatic, this mess aims to address the obstacles we encounter en route to romance. But a pessimistic mood causes the picture to drag its feet. Staged without an ounce of genuine sentiment, Deal makes Britney Spears' dismal Crossroads look like Casablanca.

Screenwriter Neena Beber draws inspiration from two separate Sarah Dessen novels, but can't squeeze one decent movie out of the material. In only her second starring role, Moore plays Halley Martin, a disillusioned high schooler learning how to deal with a lifetime's worth of problems. Halley's divorced dad (Peter Gallagher) has a new fiancée, while her mom (Allison Janney) is still coping with the split. Her best friend, Scarlett (Alexandra Holden), is pregnant, and her older sister's pending nuptials appear doomed from the start. Out of the blue, Halley is falling for a detached hunk (Trent Ford) who might be able to convince her that true love exists.

Deeply Review

I mention Kirsten Dunst and you probably think... remote fishing village with an ancient curse. Right?

Points for trying to avoid the cruel typecasting fate of Freddy Prinze Jr., but Dunst is pretty far from her element here. As a girl named Silly (Silly!), Dunst takes center stage in a tale told by Lynn Redgrave's aging Celia -- part fiction, part legend. The fishing village where she lives, it is told, has a dark past, caused by an ancient curse that causes the fish to vanish from the local waters once every 50 years. The only way to banish the curse is to sacrifice a girl in the water. And guess who's turn it is to go?

Slap Her, She's French Review

Slap me, I liked it.

If the farcical title for actress-turned-director Melanie Mayron's Slap Her, She's French doesn't scare you away, there's a chance the worn-out premise will. Don't let it. With tongue planted firmly in cheek, Mayron and her bubbly cast of newcomers deliver a delectable little treat that's sunny, funny, and far more intelligent than you'd expect.
