Alien: Isolation (2014) Video Game Review

21 October 2014 11:26 PM, PDT | MoreHorror | See recent MoreHorror news »

Reviewed by Jesse Miller, MoreHorror.com

The mouths of gamers and Alien fans everywhere were left sour after the rather lacklustre Aliens: Colonial Marines so when a new game was announced with Sega yet again behind the curtain, some folks started to panic yet another disaster was around the corner.

Sega, with developer Creative Assembly, sought to go back to the original 1979 film and recreate that sense of horror and dread in an original storyline that would take place 15 years after the events of that film and follow Amanda Ripley, Ellen’s daughter, as she too comes into contact with the dreaded creature.

The end result for Alien: Isolation is probably one of the finest survival horror experiences in gaming I’ve had in years, as it’s relentlessly tense, rarely gives you a moment of peace and is often challenging.

As a fan of the Alien film series, »

The Selfish Giant: Costume Design for Social Realist Drama

25 July 2014 6:56 AM, PDT | Clothes on Film | See recent Clothes on Film news »

Clio Barnard’s stark yet heart-wrenching film The Selfish Giant (2013, UK) offers two fantastic performances from its young stars in their acting debut. Matt Price discusses how his costume design for the film reflects the strong, relatable characters so well…

It is lunchtime in London as costume designer Matthew Price shuffles into the Curzon, Soho. Recently collaborating with Clio Barnard on the Bafta nominated film, The Selfish Giant, reuniting after experimental documentary The Arbour, Price is surprisingly reserved about his work. “I wasn’t really sure if they’d take me on again,” he says of Barnard and producer Tracey O’Riordan. “The Arbour did quite well so I didn’t know if they’d interview designers with more experience but luckily they asked me to do it.”

Connor Chapman as Arbour wearing a pair of rigger boots. These are a commonly worn workwear boot and stereotypically, if accurately, connected with the traveller community. »

‘The Selfish Giant’ – Chris’ Review

Stars: Conner Chapman, Shaun Thomas, Sean Gilder, Ralph Ineson, Ian Burfield, Lorraine Ashbourne, Elliott Tittensor, Siobhan Finneran | Written and Directed by Clio Barnard

This film was first brought to my attention when I saw some guerrilla marketing in and around Bradford, England, the place in which The Selfish Giant was set and filmed. I’m from West Yorkshire so I was interested to see the region represented and was curious about the story too.

Written and directed by Clio Barnard (The Arbor), The Selfish Giant follows the two characters of Arbor and Swifty, two young Yorkshire lads who, after being excluded from their school for fighting, take to the streets in their local area in Bradford and stumble on a scrap dealer named Kitten (Sean Gilder) who puts them to work collecting scrap metal for him, which they can weigh-in and get some money for. Based on the actual occurrence »

‘The Selfish GIant’ DVD Review

There is something disarming about stories that deal with childhood friendships, especially ones that are filmed close to where you live.  The Selfish Giant was filmed around the city of Bradford, so there is a familiarity to the landscapes that I see in the movie as I live there.  What is more effective is the natural acting of two boys plucked out of obscurity showing a friendship that is all too real and all too painful at the end.

The Selfish Giant is based on an Oscar Wilde short story, and after watching the film you’ll find yourself wanting to read the tale to compare the two.  For the film though it tells the story of Arbor (Conner Chapman) and Swifty (Shaun Thomas).  Brought together as »

The Duchess of Malfi - review

Sam Wanamaker Playhouse, London

Gemma Arterton brings beauty, determination and moral goodness to one of the great female roles

A new theatre is often a challenge. Until weathered and worn by use, it can seem strangely cold and forbidding. But the extraordinary thing about the new indoor Jacobean theatre that is part of Shakespeare's Globe, is that it feels as if it's always been there and was just waiting to be uncovered.

Designed by architect Jon Greenfield, it is small, intimate, welcoming. It seats 340 people who sit tightly packed in two galleried tiers in a beautiful oaken building. I wouldn't say the backless seats are the height of sybaritic comfort but they force one to pay attention. But the real innovation is the use of candlelight in the tradition of 17th century theatre. Sliding panels at the back of the auditorium admit artificial light when needed but there is something rich, »
