THIS WEEK IS DANNY DYER WEEK @ BRITPIC

Help us celebrate the film career of Brit-Pic pin-up Danny Dyer by watching at least one film starring him that you hadn’t seen before….

This week we’ve already reviewed

DOGHOUSE, DEVIATION alongside existing reviews of DEAD CERT, THE LAST SEVEN, DEAD MAN RUNNING and DEVIL’S PLAYGROUND… If we get time we’ll also be reviewing PIMP and THE AGE OF HEROES.

Even if we don’t like all of his films we’ve seen him on stage and know he’s a talented little fella.  KURT & SID was a great play, which me and Joe Pesci II attended back in 2010.

We’ll give our copy of DEVIATION to the first person to leave a comment on any of the reviews on the Britpic site. Although, you’ll have to wait until Joe Pesci II has seen and reviewed it.

Love, Brit Pic Dick…

COMING THIS WEEK – 12/9/12

NEW REVIEWS OF two very different Ray Winstone features; THE SWEENEY MOVIE & ELFIE HOPKINS.  I also plan to catch up on some of the older films with reviews pending.  Looking forward to seeing Ray Winstone and co duffing gangsters up in London.  But he’s got his work cut out to better the other UK action flick out this week, DREDD. NOW SEEN THE SWEENEY. Click link above.

Also reviewed a strange slasher flick called F, which has some good ideas and a very good ending. But ultimately ends up being just another John Carpenter wanna-be. Stick with SCREAM…. However, it’s way better than the likes of Ashley Walters starrer DEMONS NEVER DIE.

Also check out the weird and wonderful horror comedy STRIPPERS VS. WEREWOLVES which also doubles as a retirement home for ex-Eastenders stars like Martin Kemp.

Also Joe Pesci II owes me a review of THE HOLDING, a low budget rural thriller starring VINCENT REGAN, TERRY STONE and KIERSTON WAREING…

THE HOLDING review is alive!!!

Stay tuned friends…..

Hello,

We aim to review as many UK films that get a cinema release as we can. We’ll also review the occasional “straight to DVD” title too if it takes our fancy. We are only going to go back as far as 2010 as well as to limit our scope.

Its probably really hard to define what makes a “true” British film because of foreign investment.  So we’ll keep the criteria broad.

  • The film has been made by a British auteur that traditionally makes films in  the UK, although occasionally abroad (eg; Michael Winterbottom, Steve McQueen)
  •  The film is set in the UK with a British cast.
  • Does NOT include US blockbusters that include the UK as a location (eg; Fantastic 4: Rise Of The Silver Surfer or Mission: Impossible)

I think that just about covers it.

We will only be reviewing movies that I’ve been lucky or unlucky enough to have seen.  We have to rely on three cinemas CINEWORLDS LUTON & MILTON KEYNES and the wonderful THE REX in BERKHAMSTED or The Plough in Great Torrington.  So if they don’t show a UK movie, it slips through the net!

If you’re a filmmaker, just remember this: we’re on the side of the viewers. If we’ve given your film a bad review, make a better film next time. Even if you’ve made 10 great movies on the trot then you make a dog we’ll be there to let your fans know… but equally we’re here to champion your good work… So don’t blame your low budgets. We’ve seen low-budget flicks that can entertain. We’ve heard it all. But we still love you, so keep on fighting to make your dream movie (even it turns out to be our nightmare movie!)….

Thanks to the filmmakers that have got in touch with us since the blog begun with all your encouragement. We await great things from you all…. Even you Simon Phillips!
