The Hatton Garden Job Trailer


One man is plotting to carry out the biggest diamond heist in history in a bid to settle a debt that could otherwise cost him his life. He decides to target one of London's biggest and most secure safe deposit facilitys; the Hatton Garden Safe Deposit Company which could bag him up to $200 million. But the youth of today just aren't up for a job of this size; if they want to carry out this theft successfully, they need to get hold of the real veterans of the game. Criminal mastermind Brian Reader, getaway driver Kenny Collins and fixer and supplier Terry Perkins are all roped in to execute the crime. On the other hand, these crooks are the very definition of 'old' school, which means they could be more of a liability than a success.

Offender Review


Weak
It's clear that director Scalpello and writer Van Carter were trying to do something unusual here, but those standard prison movies cliches prove that they're just too difficult to resist. And this leaves the film's revenge plot feeling rather uninteresting.

Tommy (Cole) is a young thug sent to prison for two years after punching a couple of cops. Once inside, he locks his eye on top goon Jake (Frank), and there's more than a hint of personal vendetta about it. Sure enough, in flashback we see a series of events during the summer 2011 London riots and some nastiness involving Tommy's pregnant parole-officer girlfriend Elise (Nixon). But now that he's inside, who can Tommy trust? His cellmate (Kirby)? A peace-loving Muslim (Oba)? Certainly not the dope-smoking guard (Dooley).

Slacker Review


Extraordinary
To understand Slacker is to understand Austin. If you see the film and you don't enjoy it, you might consider a visit to the burg next time you're in Texas. Although the buildings are bigger, chain stores have replaced the indies, and the traffic is worse, Austin -- as a populace -- is a town that never changes, no matter what gets thrown at it.

I lived in Austin when Slacker was made in 1991 -- I was a junior at The University of Texas at the time, not cool enough to personally know anyone involved with the production but certainly aware of it when it came out. You couldn't avoid it: The film earned a miniscule release and was ignored at the national level, but in the town of Austin (population about 800,000 at the time), it got the red carpet treatement, playing in local theaters all year long.
