The Hairdresser’s Husband (1990)

Severin Films have brought us a world of depravity and sleaze, but with this latest DVD release they present one of the most poetically beautiful romantic films ever made.

I was rather skeptical at first, but I can assure you that this is not another forumulaic “romantic comedy” from the Hollywood cookie cutter, instead it is a heartfelt, emotional and genuine romantic film but with that wonderful surrealism that comes naturally to French cinema. I highly recommend this to anyone wanting a good film to watch as a couple but not wanting yet another “rom-com”.

The Witches (1966)

How embarrasing, I asked my staff yesterday to upload the review of the film about the witches… Don’t worry, they have been suitably disciplined.

The review you were meant to see is this one – a lesser Hammer film that tries to be a cross between the horror films and their thrillers, but one that doesn’t really work as either.  One for Hammer completists only.

The Devil Wears Prada (2006)

Wednesday, April 1st, 2009

Meryl Streep and Anne Hathaway star in this adaptation of the bestselling novel by Lauren Weisberger. Although the storyline with seems to revolve around a critique of the excesses of the fashion industry, it can never actually bring itself to say a bad word against it. Some good acting and solid production make this watchable and recommended to ‘chick flick’ fans.
