Last year, shortly after the UK cinema release, 5-Word featured its first guest review; a fittingly verbose column on this film from Clare Williams (read it here). In the intro to that piece, I said that Clare would be contributing more to the site in the future, but as it turns out, we can’t afford her. You’ll just have to make do with me. But anyway, here’s Day 226.
I caught this one up on Netflix instant. Worth a watch.
Looking at the amount of money it has made in the ten years since release, the chances are reasonably high that you haven’t seen this film. If I were you, I’d look into fixing that.
The Olympics are off to a fantastic start down in London – or so I hear – but up here in Edinburgh it is still movie season.
Today was the end of my summer holiday from the day job. Also the start of the downward slope as I begin the slide towards December 31st 2012. Yesterday was the end of the beginning and today is the beginning of the end. I wonder what that sounds like in Latin.
Back to the Festival today, and time for a spy thriller that is actually thrilling, unlike some we have seen recently. For tomorrow, I need your help. There are two movies I would like to see screening at the same time, and I want you lot to help me pick which one to see. The first is California Solo, starring Robert Carlyle as a former Brit-pop musician (think Oasis’ Noel Gallagher) now living in a commune in Cali, and the other is a new portmanteau, found footage horror called V/H/S.

As the name suggests, a lot of the films showing at EIFF are not of this land. Here are two of the best foreign-language flicks showing this weekend.
I know this may seem like a bit of a let-down for all of you, but WTF Sunday is taking a bit of a break this week. I went to the movies with my roommate this afternoon to see this film on her recommendation. Before it was even half over I knew I just had to write about it. Don’t worry though; I’ve got some wacky shit all lined up for next week.
It has been uncommonly hard to write yesterday’s and today’s columns as I am still hung up on Ink. We’re not even halfway through the year yet, but I know for a fact that movie will be in the top of the charts if I were to be crazy enough to rank all these. But anyway, Ink was Sunday and it’s time to move on. Here’s a sweet little indie heart-warmer for you…
Time to tick another flick off the “Whaddya mean you haven’t seen that one?” list. Today, it’s the turn of Marty’s period rom-com. Read More
