  • E
  • Directed by: Eric Stanley/Chris Vargas
  • Cast: Ralowe T Ampu, Kentaro Kaneko, Mattilda

Short film set sometime in the future-present that chronicles a group of radical queers dedicated to exposing the trouble with gay marriage. A critique of 'heteronormativity' and its perceived perpetuation of US patriotism that is also a call for a kind of melancholic utopianism.

Honeydripper

  • 4 stars
  • 2007
  • US
  • 122 min
  • PG
  • Directed by: John Sayles
  • Written by: John Sayles
  • Cast: Danny Glover, Keb' Mo', Mable John, Kel Mitchell

It's 1950 in rural Alabama and morally circumspect pianist Tyrone Purvis (Glover) is trying to save the Honeydripper lounge from bankruptcy and his ass from prison. Although this benign and jolly tale is too long and features too many characters, Sayles' ability to spin a good yarn remains undiminished, irreproachable…

Hostel: Part II

  • 3 stars
  • 2007
  • US
  • 93 min
  • 18
  • Directed by: Eli Roth

  • Cast: Lauren German, Roger Bart, Heather Matarazzo, Bijou Phillips, Richard Burgi

Three young Americans in Rome set off for a weekend trip and become embroiled in the grisly fantasies of the sick and privileged. Roth ('Cabin Fever', 'Hostel') ups the ante here with some truly shocking slasher gore and grotesque pornography. It's difficult to see the point but at least this pushes the generic envelope.

  • UK
  • 120 min
  • 15
  • Directed by: Edgar Wright
  • Written by: Edgar Wright, Simon Pegg
  • Cast: Simon Pegg, Nick Frost, Jim Broadbent

Unimpeachable London copper Nicholas Angel (Pegg) is moved to a rural beat where he uncovers lurking danger with only impressionable young PC Danny (Frost) for back up. A parody of US action/buddy/police movies it will be a huge hit, despite being overlong, with a strong plot that's stretched to snapping point.

  • Written by: Pam Brady, Uncredited:, Akiva Schaffer, Andy Samberg, Jorma Taccone

Originally conceived as a Will Ferrell vehicle, this film focuses on 'Hot' Rod Kimble (Samberg), an amateur stuntman who attempts to win the respect of his hometown and his ill stepfather (McShane) by setting himself the foolhardy challenge of jumping over 15 buses on his moped. 'Hot Rod' doesn't exactly set its sights…

Ripping off the premise from last year's 'Stomp The Yard', 'How She Move' focuses on aspiring doctor Raya (Wesley), who seeks to express herself in the world of dance. While choreographer Hi Hat's dance sequences are dynamically shot and edited, this MTV production is hampered by sanctimonious lectures, stereotypical…
