New Cinema Release: American Hustle

Backseat Mafia

Wow I’ll be completely honest in this review how this film won awards I have no idea, maybe I am just not the right demographic, it was slow, boring and quite uneventful even much so that I could barely stay awake. It was a struggle to say the least.

Don’t get me wrong some good actors in the movie but it took a very long time for anything remotely interesting to happen. It dragged out which I suppose maybe a good thing for some people as it does give a very long look back in time into character history together.

I would tell you what it was about but to fair, I don’t really know as it was so pointless but it’s a fictional film telling the story of a con man Irving Rosenfeld (Christian Bale), who along with his British partner Sydney Prosser (Amy Adams)…

Cinema Release Review: 12 Years A Slave

Backseat Mafia

12 Years A Slave was released in the USA last year but has only just been released onto the UK cinema screens.
If you are easily offended or feeling low, I wouldn’t recommend this film. It depicts the disgusting attitude taken towards slavery.
It’s a rather shocking film and if you tear up easily i’d suggest you grab a box of tissues. It does last a rather long length of time and it uses long scenes to dramatise certain situations.
It’s a deep and saddening film leaving you feel relieved for the ending to be happy but also a little low from the behavior you have just seen is based on a true story from the 1853 autobiography by Solomon Northup.
I won’t give too much away but the scenes are powerful and involve a lot of slave punishment and attitude. The main character Solomon is a New York State-born…

DVD Release: You’re Next

Backseat Mafia


Set for release on DVD on Monday 13th January 2014. If you like gory thrillers then this is probably a good film for you to watch. Films like this can sometimes be very stupid and tedious.  However I continued to watch the film.

By first impressions of the 1st 10 minutes of the film, you would think oh great another rip off version of scream. A slash and kill scene ending with blood written You’re Next on the patio doors, yes I know gripping. (Not)

Anyway Continuing to watch the film reveals an actual storyline as  the Davison family comes under a sadistic attack during a family reunion in their parents new and very large house in the country.

When one of the sons of the family Crispian Davison brings his new girlfriend along to celebrate the wedding anniversary of his parents, the family’s evening together is shattered when…
