Simon Read [Celluloid 06.24.19] scifi drama romance

Is it uncool to admit a film has made you cry? (And do kids still use that word, 'cool'?) It's 2019, so I guess it's okay. Not the End made me cry. (Hey, stop laughing at the back.) It's not a film about time-travel as much as it is about how time changes people, how relationships can either develop and grow or wither and die, and that we can never truly go back to th...

Simon Read [Celluloid 06.18.19] United Kingdom horror action comedy thriller

Comedy-horror films often live or die on whether or not they can balance humor and scares. Boyz in the Wood doesn't really aim for this formula though, being far too good-natured and goofy in tone; while there is a smattering of gore, the film contains almost no sense of peril, tension or suspense. It does, however, succeed admirably as a knockabout comedy with some g... [Continue reading]
