‘Nurse 3D’ Review

4 February 2015 8:29 AM, PST | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

Stars: Kathleen Turner, Judd Nelson, Katrina Bowden, Paz de la Huerta, Corbin Bleu, Boris Kodjoe, Michael Eklund, Niecy Nash, Melanie Scrofano, Martin Donovan, Adam Herschman, Katia Peel | Written by Douglas Aarniokoski, David Loughery | Directed by Douglas Aarniokoski

The Nurse may be in 3D, but that’s not how it was viewed – because if it doesn’t have piranhas, Judge Dredd or murderous miners in it, its really not worth the hassle. In Nurse – which is a much-anticipated thing people wanted to see – a murderous nurse spends her evenings offing adulterous bastard men, like some sort of kinky anti-cheating Punisher. Things get complicated when she befriends newbie colleague Danni (Katrina Bowden), who doesn’t look so kindly upon her man-murdering ways. Melodrama ensues… in 3D!

Part stylish thriller, part steamy European slasher film and all Lionsgate, Nurse takes a strong female cast, promising concept, excellent visuals and frequently clever writing and »

DVD Review: 'Nurse'

11 January 2015 8:30 AM, PST | CineVue | See recent CineVue news »

★★★☆☆Are hopes and expectations dashed or raised by a film called Nurse (2013) starring Paz de la Huerta? It doesn't suggest a classic, more a titillating horror comedy. Therefore, the whole endeavour edges close to the perilous shores of a joke-concept, and one expected to flounder on the rocks of a weak punchline with all hands lost. Director Douglas Aarniokoski puts his cards on the table with the opening credits sequence – a montage of salacious book covers reminiscent of dime-store crime fiction. From this striptease-style naughtiness, it's apparent enough the tone the filmmaker is going for. Somewhat surprisingly, Nurse is an amusing neo-giallo/slasher.

Top 100 Most Anticipated Foreign Films of 2015: #8. Gaspar Noé’s Love

9 January 2015 9:00 AM, PST | ioncinema | See recent ioncinema news »

Love

Director: Gaspar Noé // Writer: Gaspar Noé

The most controversial director in our top ten list has to be Argentinean director Gaspar Noé, who has made an infamous name for himself with a trio of French titles, beginning with 1998’s I Stand Alone, which starred a grizzled Philippe Nahon (who many should recognize for an equally unsettling role in Aja’s 2003 film High Tension) as a butcher spiraling into a violent rampage. But it was Noe’s 2002 title, Irreversible, which still makes entries on many lists documenting the most shocking or disturbing films ever made, thanks mostly to a nine minute rape scene featuring Monica Bellucci. And if we thought he couldn’t outdo himself there, Noe managed to do so with controversial Enter the Void (2009), in which the soul of a drug dealer is our guide through the underbelly of Tokyo, starring Paz de la Huerta in a terribly underrated performance. »
