Frightfest 2014: ‘Blood Moon’ Review

25 August 2014 5:01 AM, PDT | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

Stars: Ian Whyte, George Blagden, Anna Skellern, Corey Johnson, Shaun Dooley, Jack Fox, Eleanor Matsuura, David Sterne, Amber Jean Rowan | Written by Alan Wightman | Directed by Jeremy Wooding

It’s safe to say horror westerns don’t have the best track record. Don’t get me wrong, there’s a good amount of decent examples out there such as Grim Prarie Tales, Ravenous, Dead Birds and The Burrowers. But there’s also a Lot of bad horror westerns, two of which – Gallowalkers and Umbrage – debuted at Frightfest’s of the past. Given that, it was with a sense of trepidation that I approached Blood Moon

Set in Colorado in 1887, Blood Moon sees a stagecoach full of strange passengers and an enigmatic gunslinger Calhoun (Dooley) find themselves prisoners of two desperate outlaws on the run. As the prairie travellers attempt to outwit the outlaws in any way they can it soon »

7 reasons why you need to watch Captain Phillips online now

10 February 2014 2:00 AM, PST | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Tom Hanks plays the title character in Paul Greengrass's thriller Captain Phillips. Based on a true story of how a Us cargo ship and its crew were taken hostage by Somali pirates, it was one of the most critically acclaimed movies of 2013.

The film is available to watch online now without a subscription, thanks to blinkbox.

Here are seven reasons for you should cancel your plans today and watch Captain Phillips instead:

1. Tom Hanks gives his best performance in years

Hanks is awesome in what is possibly his best dramatic role since 2002's Road To Perdition. You will be rooting for him from start to finish, and he should've been nominated for an Oscar.

2. It has one of the best screen debuts of all time

Barkhad Abdi was deservedly nominated for an Oscar for playing pirate Muse. It is quite possibly the best cinematic debut for a non-child actor ever. »

Stars: Saoirse Ronan, Tom Holland, George MacKay, Harley Bird, Danny McEvoy, Anna Chancellor, Corey Johnson, Jonathan Rugman, Darren Morfitt, Stella Gonet, Des McAleer | Written by Jeremy Brock, Tony Grisoni, Penelope Skinner | Directed by Kevin Macdonald

War is something that changes lives forever, whether you be fighting in it or just a citizen.  It rips communities apart and on a more personal level can affect your whole life.  How I Live Now is a film that takes the impact of war and puts it at a very personal level, showing that though you may not be on the frontline lives can be changed forever.

When Daisy (Saoirse Ronan) travels to the UK to visit her relatives it takes her time to open up and enjoy herself.  Things soon take a turn for the worse though when war breaks out and as the family are split up through mandatory evacuation, Daisy finds »
