    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.

Mistaken For Strangers (2013)

Filed under: — Helen on August 3rd, 2014 04:08:15 pm

mistaken for strangers posterMistaken for Strangers was supposed to be a rock documentary about the popular band ‘The National’ as they embarked on their 2010 tour, but it turned out to be something much more original and stirring.  Filmed by Tom Bernenger, the younger brother of ‘The National’s’ lead singer Matt Berninger, as he is invited to come on tour with the band and work as a roadie for them, Mistaken for strangers is more a film about sibling rivalry and self discovery than a music documentary. It not only shows the not particularly exciting off stage antics of a rock/indie band, but it shows how brotherly love and patience can be tested by jealousy and being in close proximity to one another.

inside llewyn davis film posterInside Llewyn Davis comes at a time when piracy and the internet are making it harder than ever for musicians to make money out of their music. People are buying music less and less from shops and getting everything online at a cheaper rate. With this and the still recent financial crisis in mind, this film about a struggling musician is a story bound to strike a chord with many people. Llewyn’s efforts to get himself heard has the potential to resonate with any person who has struggled to find work  in a changing marketplace.

Beautiful Creatures (2013)

Filed under: — Helen on December 6th, 2013 04:12:29 pm

beautiful creatures film posterBeautiful Creatures is a romantic fantasy film centred around a small town character who falls in love with a mysterious stranger who has supernatural powers.  Sound familiar? It’s impossible not to draw comparisons between this and Twilight, as the central story is almost the same, just with the genders being reversed. The supernatural character is the girl, and she is a witch or ‘caster’, rather than a vampire.

Captain Phillips (2013)

Filed under: — Helen on October 25th, 2013 01:10:34 pm

captain phillips posterCaptain Phillips is the story of an ordinary man who finds himself caught up in extraordinary circumstances. Based on real events that took place in 2009 when an American cargo ship was hijacked by Somali pirates and the Captain was held hostage for days at sea, Captain Phillips is a gripping thriller that successfully manages to maintain tension throughout. That is an impressive  feat considering a large portion of the film is set in the confined space of a small lifeboat.

blackfish film posterBlackfish is a documentary about the captive killer whale Tilikum, who has a proven track record of killing people. During a performance at Seaworld Orlando in 2010, he grabbed his trainer during a performance and killed her.  The tragic event got media attention worldwide as it made people question not only the moral debate of keeping whales in captivity, but also the safety of the humans working with them.

A Field in England (2013)

Filed under: — Helen on August 5th, 2013 09:08:49 am

a-field-in-england-movie-posterA Field in England grabbed headlines when it was revealed it was  to be launched simultaneously across a number of mediums, including cinemas,Film4 tv channel, and DVD. This innovative release method ensured the film got wide publicity, as this was the first time in the UK a film had used this experimental release method. The film itself is also extremely experimental, blending 17th century civil war history, with hallucinogenic drug taking. It is also shot in black and white, giving a surreal effect, which adds to the film’s overall bizarreness. This movie feels more like a piece of art than a film, but it was so weird,  it merits discussion.

Ruby Sparks (2012)

Filed under: — Helen on July 1st, 2013 05:07:56 pm

ruby sparksRuby Sparks is a romantic comedy which also has a fantasy element to the plot that gives it an interesting likeable edge over other films in that genre. Most romantic comedies contain an unintentional fantasy element, as they never seem to show a relationship that could be real, only an idealised version of the perfect romance. In contrast, the actual relationship in Ruby Sparks is very real and shows a couple struggling to make their relationship work. The fantasy element here comes from the fact that the woman in the relationship starts off as a figment of the man’s imagination. He accidentally conjures his dream girl to life only to find the relationship they begin is far from perfect .

Catfish (2010)

Filed under: — Helen on May 19th, 2013 11:05:04 am

catfish film posterCatfish is a documentary that has often been labelled as fake. This is because the events that unfold in front of the camera are so fascinating and unbelievable, it is difficult to watch without questioning the film’s authenticity and the improbability of all this being caught on camera. The filmmakers have consistently denied this though and claim that although some of the scenes were reconstructed after the events had taken place, the majority of what the viewer sees is genuine. The difficulty of establishing what is real and what is not turns out to be an exciting part of the film though and adds to the mystery of the story being told.
