Movie Review – The Perfect Husband (2014)

The Perfect Husband, 2014.

Directed by Lucas Pavetto.

Starring Gabriella Wright, Bret Roberts, Tania Bambaci, Carl Wharton, Philippe Reinhardt, and Daniel Vivian.

Synopsis:

A young married couple attempt to recover from a past trauma by taking a weekend trip away to a remote cabin but it seems that they cannot escape the demons of the past as paranoia descends into carnage.

The film begins with Viola (Gabrielle Wright) and her husband Nicola (Bret Roberts) packing for their idyllic trip to the countryside but all the while bickering over past issues. It’s a tense opening act with an emotionally distant Nicola dismissing many of Viola’s concerns, and Viola expressing through her body language a discomfort about this trip and of Nicola’s behaviour. This notion soon dissipates when they drive towards the cabin when it becomes abundantly clear that these were not character traits, but poor acting choices.

Danny Boyle to Direct Smash and Grab

Danny Boyle is returning to the heist genre, signing on to direct Smash and Grab for Pathe and Fox Searchlight Pictures.

The project is a narrative adaptation of this summer's documentary Smash & Grab: The Story of The Pink Panthers, directed by Havana Marking. Here's the documentary's official description.

"Their crimes resemble high-octane Hollywood action movies: a sports car speeds through a Dubai shopping mall, crashing into the windows of a Graff jewelry store. Masked, gun-wielding men jump out of the car, and stuff fistfuls of diamonds into their satchels before screeching off. In London, they took all of three minutes to make off with $30 million in diamonds. They are captured not in person, but on surveillance tapes that record their astonishing lightning strikes with hypnotic accuracy.

Playing out like a noir thriller spiced with cutting-edge animation and shocking real surveillance footage, Havana Marking's Smash & Grab is an exclusive all-access

Uwe Boll's Zombie Massacre Brings the Undead Super Soldiers in this Official Trailer

Zombie Massacre is Uwe Boll's latest film. Boll is a producer on this picture and he also has a screen credit as the American President. Picturing Boll as the President is a true nightmare. Even more nightmarish is this first official trailer for the film. In the clip, a super soldier, produced by the American government, is inadvertently unleashed on a local populace. A team of mercenaries are sent in to restore order. Who will win the day: the undead or these rogue soldiers? Zombie Massacre is based on a video game from Benjamin Krotin, which is scheduled for release in 2012 through 1988 Games. However, as 2012 draws to an end, an official release date for the game has not been confirmed. For now, forget the joystick and enjoy the film's reel below. Director/writer: Luca Boni and Marco Ristori. Cast: Uwe Boll, Tara Cardinal, Mike Mitchell, Jon Campling, Christian Boeving,

Latest Batch of Behind-the-Scenes Photos from Zombie Massacre

There are a lot of zombie movies coming out this year, but only one of them is directed by “Eaters: Rise of the Dead” masterminds Luca Boni and Marco Ristori. “Zombie Massacre”, the duo’s latest undead-related endeavor, is being proudly presented to the world by Uwe Boll. However, don’t let the “House of the Dead” director’s involvement dissuade you from checking this one out. “Eaters” was a pretty badass movie, and from the looks of things, their latest effort seems to have been fashioned from the same mold. That’s a good thing, by the way. The film is loosely based on the video game by 1988 Games, which is about a group of police officers who are charged with delivering a nuclear bomb into a zombie-infested city. The adaptation stars Christian Boeving, Jon Campling, Mike Mitchell, Gerry Shanahan, Daniel Vivian, and the lovely Tara Cardinal. You can
