    If the victim is choking on popcorn: stand behind the victim and wrap your arms around his waist. Place your fist with the thumb side against the victim's abdomen slightly above the navel and below the rib cage. Grasp your fist with your other hand and pull it into the victim's abdomen with a quick upward thrust. Repeat the movement several times if necessary.

Dark Places (2015)

Filed under: — Brandon Engel on August 20th, 2015 10:08:10 pm

Dark PlacesFollowing the massive success of Gillian Flynn’s Gone Girl adaptation, high expectations were set for this summers release of Dark Places. Coming to us from director Gilles Paquet-Brenner, there’s no denying that the second feature length adaptation of one of Flynn’s books was a relative disappointment. Although the movie features renowned actors and actresses and had all the raw ingredients to make a hit, the film still failed to generate any sort of reception even comparable to its predecessor.

The Imitation Game (2014)

The_Imitation_Game_POSTERAlan Turing played an important role in breaking the Nazi Enigma code and enabling Great Britain to win the war. His war efforts went largely unattributed though for many years and he was only known as a successful professor who committed suicide following an arrest for homosexuality and a subsequent chemical castration. It was only when war documents were unclassified many years later that Turing’s code breaking achievements were revealed and his remarkable story came to light, enabling The Imitation Game movie to be made.

genisysWarning: this review contains some mild spoilers!

James Cameron’s 1984 classic The Terminator spawned a wildly successful and hugely influential franchise that spanned comics, novels, video games, television and 5 feature films. While the movie series has seen a dip in quality since 1991’s landmark T2: Judgement Day, the latest installment takes the story in an intriguing new direction, and features the return of screen icon Arnold Schwarzenegger.

The Guest (2014)

Filed under: — Helen on July 16th, 2015 10:07:12 am

the guest posterThe Guest is a wildly entertaining thriller that doesn’t take itself too seriously. The plot is a little bit ridiculous and nonsensical, but the film is so much fun that that doesn’t even matter. As soon as David Collins (Dan Stevens) is introduced and the camera starts catching his creepy menacing glares, you get caught up in waiting to see what he’s going to do next and in finding out just how crazy he actually is.

Mad Max 2: Road Warrior (1981) – Predicting A Planet Without Petrol

Filed under: — Brandon Engel on June 3rd, 2015 08:06:14 pm

The success of Mad Max: Fury Road, the latest installment of George Miller’s iconic series, marked the end of a 30 year hiatus for our favorite post-apocalyptic Australian rabble-rouser – and the perfect time to revisit the meaning of the original films. This time around, it’s again a doomsday desert setting that serves not only to furnish the plot, but to warn us of what will become of our planet if we continue consuming fossil fuels at an unsustainable rate.

Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom (2013)

Filed under: — Helen on May 26th, 2015 03:05:42 pm

mandela posterMandela: Long Walk to Freedom covers the early life and long imprisonment of Anti-apartheid revolutionary Nelson Mandela up to his release and his subsequent appointment as South African President following South Africa’s first fully representative democratic election. The film is held together by the outstanding performances of the two leads, Idris Elba and Naomie Harris. They excel as married couple Nelson and Winnie Mandela, and convincingly portray the breakdown of their relationship and the contrasting developments of their characters.

The Water Diviner (2015)

the water diviner Russell Crowe’s directorial debut The Water Diviner starts strong with heavy hitting emotional punches and shocking battle scenes, but ends weakly after over-indulging on sentimentality and a nonsensical romance side plot that unnecessarily distracts from the seriousness of the film’s main themes of grief and loss.

The One Dracula Film Everyone Must See

Filed under: — Brandon Engel on March 19th, 2015 05:03:22 pm

Bram Stoker's Dracula

Every decade seems to bring in a new round of Dracula movies for each new generation. However, the best Dracula movie has to be Bram Stoker’s Dracula by celebrated director Francis Ford Coppola. It was 1992 when it first hit the main screen and instantly it became a classic and is still rerun frequently and is available to watch through platforms like iTunes. Gary Oldman had one of his best performances ever as Dracula. He gave the character so much life and passion. Dracula’s object of obsession, Mina, was played by the talented Winona Ryder. Several other prominent actors like Keanu Reeves and Anthony Hopkins as Mr. Van Helsing would make important appearances throughout the movie as well.

Why, you might ask, is this Dracula so much more special than previous versions?

Breathe In (2015)

Filed under: — Helen on March 18th, 2015 02:03:42 pm

breathe in posterBreathe In is a slow romance drama that is not for the impatient. There is very little action in the movie and even the dialogue is quite limited. Everything is revealed through looks and body gestures. It is a testament to the good cast and performances that even without much dialogue, it is always clear what the characters are thinking.

Out of the Furnace (2014)

Filed under: — Helen on February 19th, 2015 04:02:28 pm

out of the furnace film posterOut of the Furnace is a bleak film where there is no sense of hope for any of the characters. From the start, there is a sense that there will no happy ending for anyone involved. This sense of doom is brought about by the bleak Pennsylvania town setting and the fact the main characters seem unable to stay away from trouble. Despite the negative atmosphere though, the performances are compelling and give a fresh take to a familiar story.
