Movie Review – The Hooligan Factory (2014)

12 June 2014 5:05 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

The Hooligan Factory, 2014

Directed by Nick Nevern

Starring Jason Maza, Nick Nevern, Tom Burke, Ray Fearon, Steven O’Donnell, Morgan Watkins, Josef Altin, Ronnie Fox, Leo Gregory, Keith-Lee Castle and Lorraine Stanley

Synopsis:

Dex, Danny and The Hooligan Factory travel the length of the country on a mission to re-establish their firm’s glory days. However, the police are closing in and we get a sense that the Hooligan Factory’s best days may be behind them, but with Danny on their side, and Dex finding his old form who knows where this may lead. After all… Its a funny old game.

Any screenwriting lecturer will tell you that if you want to break into the UK film market, pen yourself a script about football hooliganism. The reason for this is because there is a huge demand for it, they’re cheap to make and, like zombie movies, they can »

The HeyUGuys Interview: Leo Gregory and Martin Kemp on British gangster flick Top Dog

22 May 2014 2:00 AM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Top Dog is a feisty crime drama written by Green Street writer Dougie Brimson, the film charts the fall of reformed bad boy Billy Evans (Leo Gregory), who leads a strong cast including Dannielle Brent and Lorraine Stanley.

The film is the second feature from director Martin Kemp, who takes care to ensure that his film has heart, as well as a good old-fashioned fight. We sat with the director himself, alongside Leo Gregory, to discuss their work on the production.

Top Dog is in cinemas from Friday 23rd May and out to own on Blu-ray and DVD on Monday 26th May through Universal Pictures. Read our review here.

Top Dog Review

21 May 2014 4:30 AM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Crime dramas, crime thrillers, gangster films. They often get a bad rap – and it’s not hard to see why when there’s a constant stream of poorly made, low budget films being spurned out with the same boring plot where someone shoots someone because he ‘mugged off’ wotshisname / stole the drugs / snitched on so-and-so. So it’s something of a relief when something comes along that’s been made with a little more effort, which is where Martin Kemp’s Top Dog comes into play.

Top Dog was brought to life by Green Street writer Dougie Brimson and lead actor Leo Gregory, who plays bad-boy-turned-good Billy Evans. Evans makes the fatal faux pas of trying to protect his family from a local gang who are charging them protection money – so far, so ordinary. But director Kemp is evidently keen on attempting to present something a little different. There is »

How the agony of adaption took me to the ecstasy of the Empire

19 May 2014 12:20 AM, PDT | Pure Movies | See recent Pure Movies news »

A tweet that changed everything

There is only one person to thank for my novel Top Dog hitting the screen and the truth is, I have no idea who they are or where they reside. Nor I suspect, does anyone else.

Call it fate, luck or coincidence but when that anonymous soul hit that retweet button and sent Leo Gregory’s name onto my twitter feed, they sent both of our lives off on a journey. A journey which would last a little under 18 months later and would end with the two of us accepting awards at the British Independent Film Festival in London’s Leicester Square.

Now I could go into a long winded account of exactly how that happened but I won’t because if you wrote it in a novel, it would be laughed at as being too far fetched. »

My guilty pleasure: Green Street

24 March 2014 2:00 AM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

This football hooligan genre film about an expelled Harvard student who joins West Ham's firm is compellingly awful – but it's entertaining if you can't sleep

• More from My guilty pleasure

I am prone to insomnia. I'll lie in bed for a couple of hours, then go turn on the TV and flick through the channels until I find something that holds my attention, often on the film channels. Sometimes it's The Ring, but, when it's on, nothing beats Green Street (Green Street Hooligans in the Us). I've seen it countless times now, though I'm not sure I've ever seen it in its entirety at one sitting – it tends to be 30 minutes here, 45 there, an hour somewhere else. But between all those partial sittings, I've managed several complete run-throughs.

It's not that I'm a fan of the football hooligan genre – I've dabbled in one or two others and found them unwatchable, »
