Written and Directed by
John Patrick Shanley

Starring
Emily Blunt, Jamie Dornan, Jon Hamm and Christopher Walken


An epic love story with soaring lyricism, WILD MOUNTAIN THYME is set against the breath-taking landscapes of rural Ireland, where everyone is half mad with loneliness or love, and the weather is terrible.

Anthony and Rosemary are star-crossed lovers, whose families are caught up in a feud over a hotly contested patch of land that separates their two farms.

Anthony (Dornan) always seems to be out in the fields working, worn down by his father's constant belittling. But what really stings is his father's threat to bequeath the family farm to his American cousin Adam. Rosemary (Blunt) at first seems to hold a grudge for having been shamed by Anthony in childhood, but the sparks between them would keep a bonfire blazing through the night. Her mother Aoife strives to unite the families before it is too late.

Just when we think Anthony will pluck up the courage to face up to his repressed feelings, cousin Adam (Hamm) steps in with a plan to sweep Rosemary off her feet, romancing her over a magical 24 hours in Manhattan. But true love is never defeated!

REVIEW: Finding Steve McQueen - Heist Comedy Starring Travis Fimmel, William Fichtner, Rachael Taylor & Forest Whitaker

Review by Jon Donnis
Finding Steve McQueen is a Heist comedy starring Travis Fimmel, Travis plays the character of Harry Barber, as he tells his girlfriend Molly (Rachael Taylor) the story of how years earlier he was involved in a heist to steal $30m from President Richard Nixon.

As crazy as this sounds, this is actually based on a true story.

Also featuring Forest Whitaker as the detective investigating the case, you swap between the present and the past as the story is told.

This is a fun film, a comedy, a heist movie, but ultimately a love story, whereby telling the truth becomes the ultimate price you pay.

Although a relatively short film with a run time of about 90 minutes, you never feel like it should be any longer or any shorter, it really its it bang on the nail.
A special mention needs to be made about the soundtrack, this really stood out to me, and I almost found myself singing along to some of the classic songs, everything from T-Rex to Marvin Gaye.

A fun film that I highly recommend. - 8/10

REVIEW: Paranormal comedy DEAD

Review by Jon Donnis
As the leading expert in all things Paranormal in the UK, I am clearly the best person to review any film that comes under the Paranormal genre, I am also incredible humble. So when I got asked to review a film about a "psychic" who teams up with a dead cop to solve crimes, I have to say I rolled my eyes, here we go, another clichéd film, within a genre that has been done to death (pun intended), HOWEVER this film is anything but a cliché, in fact it is one of the most original films I have ever seen, and I have seen a lot of films.

We start off with Marbles (played by the excellent Thomas Sainsbury), a man who enjoys to smoke what I believe the youth call "the weed", he also has found a way to see ghosts, by injecting himself with a mixture of his dad's medication and Cannabis, he finds himself helping the dead cross over by passing on their messages to their loved ones, typical psychic stuff so far, but he finds himself being annoyed by a dead cop called Tagg (Hayden J. Weal), Tagg has been murdered and needs help to find the serial killer. Reluctantly Marbles agrees after a promise of a big insurance pay out to buy his family house and the adventure begins.

I would best describe this film as a comedy horror, there are quite a few laugh out loud moments, one between Marbles and Tagg's sister Yana (played by the gorgeous Tomai Ihaia) really got me. But this film does not just play for laughs, there are some really good proper horror moments, suspenseful moments and even some fun action scenes. 

I enjoyed this film, it was not what I expected, it is a completely original take on the genre, and deserves your attention.

The Good
All the characters are like-able, you really do want Marbles to succeed, and there is even a fun after credits scene as well.

The Bad
Perhaps a few scenes could have been tightened up a bit to reduce the run time, but that really is nit picking.

Overall
I enjoyed this film, and I highly recommend it to anyone who is a fan of the comedy horror genre. Support Indie Films and watch this! NOW

8/10

DEAD will be available on Digital Download from 27th October
DEAD will also be at Frightfest on 22nd October (UK Premiere) & Soho Horror Fest on 6th November

REVIEW: Alien Addiction - Out on Digital Download from 12th October


Review By Jon Donnis
I was invited to review Alien Addiction, and I have to admit at first I was a little bit skeptical, but after watching this film, I can say with the upmost confidence, I have never quite seen a film like this before.

It is incredible, and in a great way. One look at the poster, and you know this is going to be different.

Set in Waikato, New Zealand, the film follows Riko, played by the excellent Jimi Jackson, he is your typical young man, has an eye for the ladies, a bit of a prankster, he is having fun with his mates, when an alien ship crash lands near his house. He then somehow makes friends with them, and they then have an awesome day and night. Of course there are protagonists, that being "Alientologist" Peter Mackintosh (Thomas Sainsbury), who has been studying UFO's for 10 years and has tracked down the aliens and Riki, and plans to expose them to the world. I wont say more than that as I don't want to spoil it any more, but let's just say that this film really is some good sh*t.

This is a funny film, I rarely laugh out loud at anything, I have seen it all, heard it all, seen all the great comedies in history, well I thought I had seen and heard it all before I saw Alien Addiction, I have to admit, this film got me, it surprised me, it made me laugh, and I have already told 3 friends about the film within 10 minutes of it finishing. And if that is not a good sign of a great film then I don't know what is. It is a completely original and unique film in this genre. I can't think of any other film to compare it to.

Something that many people may not notice in the film is the attention to detail, something as silly as the way the aliens walk had be laughing out loud, but it also had me asking, why as no other film in history where they have had bipedal aliens, ever thought of this. Something so simple, but so genius, just adds a dynamic to this film that I just would never have thought of.

This is an indie film, and as such you usually expect a low budget, but this really is a well produced film, some great camera shots, high class audio, and an all round great cast.

If you like silly humour, funny jokes, and strong "Kiwi" language, then you will love this film.
I truly believe this film will become a cult classic, with a solid following of people singing it's praises.

Scroll down to watch the trailer.

This is the best Indie film I have seen in the last ten years. And as such I will give it a perfect 10/10
I absolutely loved it.

TRAILER: Song Without A Name - Theatrical Release Date Announced

Song Without a Name (Canción Sin Nombre) is set in Peru in 1988. The country is in the grip of a devastating political crisis. Georgina, a young woman from the Andes, has her newborn daughter stolen, after giving birth at a fake health clinic. The desperate search for her baby leads her to Pedro, a young and tenacious investigative journalist who will stop at nothing to get to the truth.

Based on a true story, Song Without a Name, nominated for the prestigious Golden Camera at last year's Cannes Film Festival, is a bruisingly evocative and almost unbearably moving first feature film from León. Evocatively filmed in stark black and white, it features a poignant performance from newcomer Pamela Mendoza as the beleaguered mother, with Tommy Párraga beautifully measured as the journalist hitting endless Kafkaesque dead ends, as he burrows into the corruption and strife of a country in turmoil.

As well as being a searing examination of the inequities of class, and the dehumanizing effects of politics, Song Without a Name is also a nerve-wracking race against time, with Georgina and Pedro on a seemingly futile search for the stolen child. Audiences who relished the Costa Gravas classic Missing, or the Oscar-winning Spotlight, about the power of journalism to uncover unpalatable truths, and Alfonso Cuarón's Roma, will find themselves haunted and enthralled by this assured, resonant masterwork.

SONG WITHOUT A NAME WILL BE RELEASED 30th OCTOBER
