The Madness of King George

It’s great when a fancy costume picture really has something to say — Alan Bennett’s crazy tale of a king’s episode of mental illness becomes a highly entertaining comedy of errors, but with serious personal and political ramifications. Nigel Hawthorne is exceptionally good as the sovereign whose brain has de-railed; Helen Mirren, Ian Holm, Rupert Everett and Amanda Donohoe variously try to help him — or steal his crown.

Matthew Vaughn and Stardust, 10 years on

Mark Harrison Oct 19, 2017

We salute the 10th anniversary of Matthew Vaughn's wonderful Stardust...

“A philosopher once asked, 'Are we human because we gaze at the stars, or do we gaze at them because we are human?' Pointless, really. Do the stars gaze back? Now, that's a question.”

Comic book movies are Matthew Vaughn's speciality. Between Kick-Ass, X-Men: First Class and the Kingsman franchise, he's been a constant and eclectic presence as these films have boomed, and if reports are to be believed, his next film could be about either Flash Gordon or Superman.

But going back even further than Mark Millar or Marvel, Vaughn's first comic book movie was his adaptation of Neil Gaiman's Stardust, which arrived in UK cinemas ten years ago this week. Before it was published as a novel in 1999, Gaiman conceived the postmodern fairy tale as a 'prestige' comic; the four-issue mini-series

Chubby Funny Review

  • HeyUGuys
Author: Samuel Spencer

Chubby Funny, apart from being my username on all major online dating profiles, is a film directed by Harry Michell. The story concerns Charlie (Augustus Prew) and Oscar (Michell), struggling actors living on the outskirts of London, Zone Four in name but shot a lot around Camden. Oscar makes a pact to give himself a year in London, saying “if I don’t even appear in Holby City I’ll go back to Kent”.

Oh and it stars Dave Benson Phillips in a small role, previously of iconic gunge-based TV show ‘Get Your Own Back’. Also showing their support through cameo roles are Alice Lowe, of previously great work like ‘Prevenge’, ‘Sightseers’ and ‘Horrible Histories’, plus Julian Rhind Tutt, Anna Maxwell Martin and Jemma Redgrave.

It’s easy to see why they would support the major new comedy talent that has been unearthed by this film. We

Sci-Fi London 2017 Review – The Rizen (2017)

The Rizen, 2017.

Directed by Matt Mitchell.

Starring Laura Swift, Sally Phillips, Tom Goodman-Hill, Julian Rhind-Tutt, Bruce Payne, Lee Latchford-Evans, Jayson Dickens, Christopher Tajah, and Laurence Kennedy.

Synopsis:

In the 1950s, a woman awakens in an underground tunnel with no memory of how she got there. She discovers that the military has been conducting occult experiments in an effort to gain an early upper hand in the Arms Race, an effort that has gone horribly awry, and must fend of bandaged, zombie-like monsters while helping others get to safety.

The Rizen, the new sci-fi/horror hybrid from writer-director Matt Mitchell (Gangsters, Guns & Zombies) plays out like a strange mash-up of Resident Evil, The Wizard of Oz, Event Horizon, and Sky Captain and the World of Tomorrow. It inherits its amnesiac heroine rampaging through an underground laboratory from Evil, its merry band of evil fighting adventurers from Wizard, its portal-to-hell plot from Horizon,

Burn Burn Burn review – an emotionally authentic road trip

Young British director Chanya Button makes a promising debut with a tragicomic tale of two women who set out to disperse the ashes of their late friend

The first feature from Chanya Button sends close friends Seph (Downton Abbey’s Laura Carmichael) and Alex (Chloe Pirrie, best known for Shell) on a road trip with the ashes of their late friend Dan (Jack Farthing). The approach is a blend of comedy of discomfort – a brilliant cameo by Julian Rhind-Tutt is mortifyingly funny – and sober reflection on lives that have reached a turning point. It’s not wholly original, but Burn Burn Burn is nicely acted and emotionally authentic. Button shows real promise as a director.

Burn Burn Burn review – confident road-trip comedy about millennials

A last request to scatter their best friend’s ashes leads to some surreal and startling moments on the road

This confident, relaxed British feature debut by director Chanya Button and screenwriter Charlie Covell is a sort of millennials’ mashup of Laughter in Paradise and Last Orders. Cynical twentysomething Dan (Jack Farthing) has just died of cancer, and has posthumously ordered his two best friends Seph (Laura Carmichael) and Alex (Chloe Perrie) to go on a road trip across Britain to scatter his ashes in personally important locations, for reasons he announces in separate videos which they have promised to watch in each place. In engineering this cathartic quest, Dan plans to sort out their personal issues from beyond the grave. It’s not the most original premise, but it’s very nicely acted by Carmichael and Perrie (who was the lead in Scott Graham’s 2012 movie Shell). There are

Poster and trailer for British comedy Burn Burn Burn

With a little over two weeks to go until its release, a poster and trailer have arrived online for director Chanya Button’s upcoming British comedy Burn Burn Burn; take a look below after the official synopsis…

Burn Burn Burn sees Dan (Jack Farthing) dispatching his good friends Seph (Laura Carmichael) and Alex (Chloe Pirrie) on an arduous road trip to hit five disparate UK venues. He’ll even accompany them: not so much backseat driver as wedged into the glove compartment, since the prematurely deceased Dan has assigned the bewildered, emotionally freefalling pair to scatter his ashes in places dear to his heart. Meantime, his funny, often painfully frank video missives map altogether rockier relationship terrain. A crackling, life-affirming voyage of self-discovery.

Burn Burn Burn is set for release on October 28th and features a cast that includes Laura Carmichael, Chloe Pirrie, Joe Dempsie, Jack Farthing, Alice Lowe, Hannah Arterton,

Emily S. Whitten: Seven Movies for Surviving Snowzilla

  • Comicmix
This past weekend we here in Washington DC got a lot of snow. Um… “A whole lot of snow”? …Okay, how about, “a metric ton of snow”? Ooh… “The fourth heaviest snowstorm dating to 1884.” There. I think that sums it up nicely.

Given this, I (not even kidding) have not left my home in five days (but I’m still sane! No really, I promise! The purple bunnies in my pantry told me so.) And of course, being a very practical person, since I knew the storm was coming I ensured I was well-stocked with all the necessary items beforehand. But then, around the end of Day 1, as the snowdrifts began inching into the two-foot range on my windowsills, I began to wonder what I would do to entertain myself if the power went out (taking with it, one might assume, the Internet).

“Ah-ha!” I said to myself. “I have

Blu-ray Review – Aaaaaaaah! (2015)

Aaaaaaaah!, 2015.

Directed by Steve Oram.

Starring Steve Oram, Toyah Wilcox, Noel Fielding, Julian Rhind-Tutt, Lucy Honigman, Julian Barratt, Tom Meeten and Holli Dempsey.

Synopsis:

I’m not sure…

A quick look at the detailed plot synopsis above won’t give away anything but it also says a lot about Steve Oram’s directorial debut, because Aaaaaaaah! – as well as having the most awkward title to say to somebody when they ask you what you are watching – is one of those films that needs to be seen because a description, however detailed or vague you want to be, will never do it justice.

This is because Aaaaaaaah! doesn’t really have a plot as such, but rather it has an approach that is entirely unique amongst films that aren’t nature documentaries. In a nutshell it is an experimental film that has human beings going about their everyday business (sort of

Steve Oram writes, directs and stars in this low-budget surreal horror comedy set in a world where human beings behave like wild apes. When Smith (Oram) upsets Ryan (Julian Rhind-Tutt), the alpha male of a fellow tribe, by engaging with a younger female member of his group, a battle for dominance begins of which only one man can win… The film also stars Noel Fielding and Julian Barratt of ‘The Mighty Boosh’ (2003) fame.

Torchwood stars Eve Myles and Naoko Mori have joined a new radio adaptation of the classic Japanese horror film Ring.

Myles stars as Toni and Mori as the Narrator and Sadako in the drama adapted from Koji Suzuki's film, which has a unique binaural 3D sound.

The BBC Cymru Wales Production is directed by James Robinson.

VOD Review – Aaaaaaaah! (2015)

Aaaaaaaah!, 2015

Written and directed by Steve Oram

Starring Steve Oram, Julian Rhind-Tutt, Lucy Honigman, Tom Meeten, Toyah Wilcox, Julian Baratt, Noel Fielding, Alice Lowe, Tony Way

Synopsis:

Alpha Male Smith and his Beta, Keith, move to take over a local community. They hook up with restless Female, Denise, igniting a deadly feud in which emotions run high and deep-seated grudges resurface amongst the tribe.

Aaaaaaaah! is a masterpiece. It’s grotesque, offensive, ugly cinema. It’s a student film on a budget. It’s a joyous celebration of cinema. It’s puerile, lowest common denominator. It’s transgressive, impossible, joyous filmmaking.

Tom Meeten wipes piss off Steve Oram’s penis, a seemingly innocuous store clerk douses a photo of Prince Harry in cum, Julian Barrett carries a Battenberg around with him for no apparent reason. There is no dialogue, only ape-ish grunts. Quite rightly, the film won’t be for everyone,

BBC Radio 4 Halloween Fright Night dramas announced

  • Den of Geek
Two new horror adaptations are coming to BBC Radio 4 this Halloween as part of Fright Night, The Stone Tape and The Ring…

While all the cool kids will be tripping over high heels and falling out of Borat mankinis on sticky dancefloors this Saturday the 31st of October, all the really cool kids will be elsewhere come Halloween: headphones on, mug of spooky cocoa in hand, listening to BBC Radio 4.

As part of Radio 4’s first annual Fright Night of Halloween programming, two exciting horror dramas are on their way: The Stone Tape, adapted from Nigel “Quatermass” Kneale’s 1972 television play, and The Ring, adapted from Koji Sozuki’s 1991 film franchise-spawning novel.

Kneale’s television play, first broadcast in 1972 as a BBC Christmas ghost story, tells the tale of a group of scientists investigating a haunted mansion whose walls are thought to have absorbed and recorded past events. It’s

A Touch of Cloth is dead, but Charlie Brooker wanted to do more, says John Hannah

Charlie Brooker's blink-and-you-miss-it comedy A Touch of Cloth is unlikely to come back for a fourth series, according to lead star John Hannah.

The Scottish actor told Digital Spy and others that the Sky1 cop drama piss-take is "dead", but he wanted to return as Jack Cloth.

"I imagine that's dead," he said. "I think it's been too long. I loved that show. Charlie wanted to do more, everyone did. It was Sky I guess. There might have been something to do with the negotiations, I don't know.

"We did the first one, then they wanted a lot more and Charlie wasn't sure he could sustain it over 12 episodes. So we did two more and then by the third one, they had figured out what they were doing. I think it's dead, it's a couple of years since we did that now."

He added: "Normally when these things go,

Film4 FrightFest 2015 Review – Aaaaaaaah! (2015)

Aaaaaaaah!, 2015

Written and directed by Steve Oram

Starring Steve Oram, Julian Rhind-Tutt, Lucy Honigman, Tom Meeten, Toyah Wilcox, Julian Baratt, Noel Fielding, Alice Lowe, Tony Way

Synopsis:

Alpha Male Smith and his Beta, Keith, move to take over a local community. They hook up with restless Female, Denise, igniting a deadly feud in which emotions run high and deep-seated grudges resurface amongst the tribe.

Reviewing a movie like Aaaaaaaah! is almost impossible. I mean, where do you begin? It’s like a student arthouse movie made in their final year, only this was produced by grown adults who should know better. But on the flipside, there is something inherently genius about Steve Oram’s directorial debut that makes you take a step back and appreciate its art.

Let’s try and distil what Aaaaaaaah! is about. Set in a alternative present-day world, the humans in Aaaaaaaah! have evolved to the

Frightfest 2015: ‘Aaaaaaaah!’ Review

Stars: Steve Oram, Lucy Honigman, Julian Rhind-Tutt, Alice Lowe, Holli Dempsey, Julian Barratt, Toyah Wilcox, Noel Fielding, Tom Meeten | Written and Directed by Steve Oram

Two men step over a fallen branch in a damp, overgrown wood. The larger of the two stops to examine a framed picture of a woman in a wedding dress before the pair unzip their trousers and urinate on her image. Sufficiently drained, and with a look of utter seriousness on his face, the Beta pulls out a handkerchief and dabs the tip of his Alpha’s penis dry. Leaving the picture drowned in piss, they move out of the woods into a clearing and see South London open out before them. I should mention at this point that nary a word has been spoken between the pair at this point, and the rest of the film will not containing anything we would conventionally term dialogue.

Alpha Male, Smith and his Beta, Keith, make a move to take over a local community. They hook up with restless Female, Denise, igniting a deadly feud in which emotions run high and deep-seated grudges re-surface amongst the tribe. Are we not men? Or are we simply beasts? Steve Oram’s debut feature is a celluloid primal sceam in which the entire cast speak in grunts and gibberish – an anarchic, hilarious, disturbing and touching look at the human condition.
