YOU’VE BEEN HIT BY, YOU’VE BEEN STRUCK BY…
… A wave of nostalgia. I was lucky enough to see a spirited live show from early noughties nu-metal fun rockers Alien Ant Farm on their recent three-week tour of the UK, with support from Local H and SOiL. It’d be Criminal of you not to check out my full review of this Smooth evening over on the 60 Minutes With website.
Click HERE for a direct link to my thoughts on AAF’s sold out Norwich show from earlier this month. According to their official site, the band’s tour moves to Germany as of tonight.
With huge thanks to Dave and Tina at 60MW for the opportunity, and Judith at BJFPR for the press passes.
LADIES AND THE TRAMP
My latest film review was published over on the 60 Minutes With website this past weekend, looking at the recent Arrow Academy Blu-ray release of French ‘comedy’ Lost in Paris (AKA. Paris pieds nus) from husband and wife burlesque duo Abel and Gordon.

A REVIEWER’S REVIEW
As teased in my Top 5 Surprise Films of 2017 post a couple of days ago, my Top 10 ranking of my favourite cinema releases from 2017 has now gone live over at 60 Minutes With. You’ll probably strongly disagree with my choices (#1 even surprised me!), but if it turns your attention towards just one amazing film you had not seen before, then my job is done.
Tuck in to my top ten – plus five honourable mentions HERE!
MUSIC, MERMAIDS AND MELANCHOLIA
Thanks to my new working relationship with the guys and gal over at podcast/website 60 Minutes With, I was hugely excited to accept an invitation to the Screening Rooms in London’s Soho at the tail-end of October to see an exclusive critics-only preview screening of this fantastical musical Japanese Anime feature. With its limited UK cinema release beginning yesterday, the embargo has been lifted and I can now post a link to my review of Masaaki Yuasa’s Lu Over the Wall.

I am thrilled to announce that I have recently been introduced onto the website review team for brill entertainment and interview podcast 60 Minutes With.

GLASS KNUCKLED WHITE WARRIOR
Courtesy of a much-appreciated check disc from Fetch Publicity I had the opportunity recently to review the long-gestating modern reimagining of Jean-Claude Van Damme’s hard-hitting 80’s revenge flick, with the action icon returning to the franchise alongside faces fresh (Alain Moussi) and familiar (Dave Bautista, Gina Carano).

Kickboxer: Vengeance is out NOW on region 2 DVD and Blu-ray from Kaleidoscope Home Entertainment (UK).
ATTENTION ALL YOU SOMBITCHES!
My series of reviews inspecting and dissecting the Smokey and the Bandit trilogy of action-comedies (which I started right HERE with the 1977 original) has hot-wheeled it over to the 80’s Picture House for film number two, so follow the link RIGHT HERE to ride on over to read my thoughts on the Burt Reynolds/Sally Field-starring sequel which was originally titled Smokey and the Bandit Ride Again.
… Keep Scuttling!
Wait, where’s the review? I hear you ask. Well, #ICYMI on my Twitter feed, yesterday marked the start of a very exciting new opportunity for me, as I became a film reviewer for the website of the excellent 80s Picture House podcast.
