The Last Days On Mars review

14 April 2014 2:59 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Review Mark Harrison 15 Apr 2014 - 06:37

A horror movie set in space? Mark reckons you might find some of the various components of The Last Days On Mars a little familiar...

It wouldn't have been hard to slap a “The Thing Meets Gravity” or a “28 Days Later in space” strapline on the marketing campaign for The Last Days Of Mars, but it's arrived with markedly less fanfare than most mainstream horror movies released this year, pushed back from its intended release last September.

The film is a nuts-and-bolts sci-fi horror flick that played out of competition at last year's Cannes film festival, during directors' fortnight, but it's the interesting way in which it's been executed that marks it for such distinction, more than any real sort of innovation or unpredictability.

Based on The Animators, a 1975 short story by Sydney J. Bounds, the film takes place over the last 19 hours of »

The top 25 underappreciated films of 2010

26 February 2014 2:57 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Odd List Ryan Lambie Simon Brew 27 Feb 2014 - 05:54

Our series of lists devoted to underappreciated films brings us to the year 2010, and another 25 overlooked gems...

By 2010, Hollywood’s obsession with 3D movies was in full swing. James Cameron’s Avatar may have given audiences a taste of what the cutting edge of stereoscope could look like, but it has to be said that the movies ushered into cinemas in its wake were a decidedly mixed bunch. Toy Story 3's 3D was extraordinarily effective, yet Clash Of The Titans looked like a blurry mess. How To Train Your Dragon came to life in its flying sequences, but the less said about the horribly murky Last Airbender, the better.

Unless we’re mistaken, none of the movies on this list were shot or released in 3D, and few of them did particularly stellar business. A few got a certain amount of critical acclaim, »

Back in October last year Screenterrier hosted a casting call for a lead regular role in a new Sky Atlantic 12 episode drama series Fortitude which is centered on a mysterious death in the Arctic Circle.

There has never been a violent crime here. Until now. In such a close-knit community a murder touches everyone and the unsettling, mysterious horror of this crime threatens the future of the town itself.

The series has an all-star cast including Stanley Tucci, Michael Gambon, Christopher Eccleston, Sofie Grabol, Richard Dormer, Jessica Raine, Luke Treadaway, Nicholas Pinnock and Johnny Harris. »

Vicky McClure: 'Lol was the most in-depth I've gone with any character'

The star of This Is England and Line of Duty on strong women, her family's reaction to difficult storylines – and how Kate Moss became a fan

You're about to return to our screens as DC Kate Fleming in BBC2's police thriller Line of Duty. She's a female character in a predominantly male world. Does that appeal to you?

Yes, I certainly look for strong characters – whether that means they're strong in their vulnerability or strong in the way they might be attractive to lots of blokes. There are different ways of being strong. Kate's not vulnerable, she's forceful. When I read the first series, it was very much a woman in a man's world, but now we've got Keeley Hawes [who plays a detective inspector under investigation] it's definitely switched quite a lot of the focus.

Part of the success of Line of Duty seems to be that it's very realistic in a way a lot of police procedurals aren't. »
