“The last decade was saturated with TV shows and movies about vampires. From Twilight to True Blood to the Vampire Diaries, blood-sucking romances dominated our screens. Then it appeared as if the entertainment industrys fascination with the (usually, very attractive) immortal beings, and their werewolf foes had dissipated. But one film, made in 2014 on a shoestring budget, remained a part of the cultural conversation long after it left theaters: What We Do in the Shadows, a New Zealand mockumentary that follows the lives of a group of vampires living under one household in present day. Over the course of the 85-minute-long film, the vampires fight over chore wheels, cleaning up blood stains in the house, and not luring humans who want to kill them back to their home. So, you know, normal roommate problems.
CREATORS: Jemaine Clement, Taika Waititi
The 2014 cult comedy arrives on the small screen with the side-splittingly funny series adaptation we’ve been waiting for.
What We Do in the Shadows simple premise and wry humor made it a hit. Theres also the fact that it was written and directed by Jemaine Clement (half of the Flight of the Conchords musical duo) and Taika Waititi (director of 2017s Thor: Ragnarok)who star as main characters in the film……………………………………………………….”
Stranger Things Season 3 receives Rave Reviews from Critics
Midsommar Review – 5 Stars!
Florence Pugh is plunged into a terrifying pagan bacchanal in a magnificent folk-horror tale from Hereditary director Ari Aster
“There’s nothing cosy about these midsummer murders, and Midsommar could turn out to be folk-horror for the Fyre festival age. Ari Aster is the film-maker who made his feature debut just last year with the chiller Hereditary, and now presents us with this fantastically sinister and self-aware Euro-bacchanal, clearly inspired by the 1973 classic The Wicker Man. And that is not the only riff. When Hereditary came out, I guessed (correctly, as it turned out) that the director was thinking about Bergman’s Cries and Whispers. I’m now going to bet 20p that before shooting Midsommar, Aster took another look at Tarkovsky’s The Sacrifice.
Midsommar is an outrageous black-comic carnival of agony, starring charismatic Florence Pugh in a comely robe and floral headdress. It features funny-tasting pies and chorally assisted ritual sex, with pagan celebrants gazing into the middle distance and warbling as solemnly as the young dudes in the Coca-Cola TV ad about teaching the world to sing. It’s all set in an eerily beautiful sunlit plain, bounded by forests and lakes. This is supposed to be somewhere in northern Sweden, but was filmed in Hungary, and Aster, cinematographer Pawel Pogorzelski and production designer Henrik Svensson have collaborated on what are surely digitally assisted images: the sky and fields becoming a bouquet of vivid and beautiful blues and greens. The music from British composer Bobby Krlic (AKA the Haxan Cloak) is sensually creepy………………………”
What’s My Name: Muhammad Ali review – from prodigy to legend
Part one of Antoine Fuqua’s film shows the transformation within a decade from 12-year-old boxing novice Cassius Clay into the heavyweight champion of the world
“I asked my mother when I went to church on Sunday: ‘Why is everything white? What happened to all the black angels?’”
So Muhammad Ali told an interviewer, before giving a knowing look and – boom! – the punchline. “Black angels are in the kitchen preparing milk and honey.”
