(Note: I mentioned this on an episode of the podcast awhile ago but in case you missed it, I recently started doing some writing for the Quinte Film Alternative. They’re an organization that shows independent/niche movies at the Empire Theatre here in Belleville, Ontario. If you’re in the area, I highly recommend stopping by. But even if you aren’t nearby, these reviews will still be of interest. The QFA’s organizers have great taste in movies, so look for these films at an independent theatre near you. This review originally appeared here.)
In his film The Guard, Irish-born writer-director John Michael McDonagh takes the “buddy cop comedy” formula popularized in Hollywood and infuses it with his own unique sensibilities. The result is a hilarious, foul-mouthed and at times, strangely poignant film.
Another solo episode, and this time the theme is horror! A little late for Halloween, but if you’re like me, the urge to see scary stuff usually lasts a bit past the actual holiday. So on that note, four quick horror reviews. And nothin’ else!
