Michael Fassbender is Sad Silas
John Maclean's feature debut, Slow West, is an ambitious one. It is a pastiche of the classic American westerns – a celebration of the genre – and comparisons and parallels to master directors like Quentin Taranti... read feature

Review: Human Centipede 3 photo
"100% a film that was made"
I did not care for the first Human Centipede. It was a generic torture porn with a couple gimmicks in the centipede itself and the claim of being 100% medically accurate. As a jaded horror fan, I spent most of it yawning (cri... read feature

Remember Now You See Me? Sean liked it a lot, but it was pretty much a one trick poney... or so we thought. The sequel, Now You See Me: The Second Act, is something we knew about and were stunned by, but despite it not releas... read
