DISCLAIMER – Jordan no longer writes for this blog
Classic and cult film fan residing in the picturesque Tasmania; the greatest place on Earth (some would say).
I believe that a truly great film can speak for an entire generation and encapsulate a period in time, and that the lasting impact of a Stanley Kubrick or Hayao Miyazaki speaks volumes for the power of immaculately constructed moving images.
… I also believe that the Resident Evil movies are brilliantly unadulterated guilty pleasures… and I love them.
Feel free to leave me a comment if you agree with my reviews, or more importantly, if you disagree!
EDDIE – The Everyman: read more about Eddie here
Movies. How many things in life can make someone angry, make someone laugh, make a grown man weep and make a young girl swoon perhaps all in the space of a few minutes?
Anyone that says they do not like or enjoy movies is truly stone-hearted. I am an out and about loud and proud movie fanatic watching films with interest from a young age. Films of all shapes and sizes can be enjoyed and I pride myself on judging a movie on what it set out to achieve. I do not snob a film because it is directed by Michael Bay, I don’t judge Hot Rod on it’s script or film production quality’s.
All films deserve a fair go (unless it’s a Resident Evil flick) and I will endeavour to enlighten the masses on this wonderful medium.

We’ve been featured by Twinkl as part of their Great & Ghostly Guide to Halloween.
Thanks for the follow on Cinephile in Decline. I love your eclectic and respectful approach to the movies, and will be keeping track of you guys for sure.
Thanks so much Jacob, movies really are our passion and we like to feel like we can do them justice in our small little way. Cheers mate and we will be keeping in touch.
Thanks for the like on my Zombie post guys – I may be doing more movie related stuff soon!
Awesome stuff dudes. I’m looking forward to checking out more of your site. Thanks for stopping by The Kingdom for a peek at my Creepshow review.
Saaaaay, fellows… did you get one of these yet?
If so, oops – well, give one to the other guy who didn’t get one, I say. If not, welcome to the club!
I believe we did good sir but the more the merrier I say, cheers bud.
We hope you enjoy this scary horror trailer from Australian director Bronwyn Edwards for feature Tick Tock Trick with ghosts,magic and much more. Taz rocks.
Thanks for dropping by my side of the pond and liking posts!
No worries A.R, keep those film reviews coming.
Hi Jordan and Eddie, like we talked about, we would love to have you guys review a movie for us so we can share your passion to our fans and hopefully have your fans see ours too 🙂 Any movie in particular you wanted to do?
Hey mate! I reckon the best way to do it is simply re-blogging, if you hit the icon in the tool bar at the top of the screen when viewing someone’s post. That way you can choose a review you like, ha, and it links both sites together.
Kind regards, Jordan
Ok sounds good. Wanna do one each? Haha
Ill give it a shot tonight. Do you have a favourite review i should check out?
Ha, if you’re keen on horror then perhaps Martyrs, Excision or The House of the Devil. We’ll endeavour to mention you guys in our related articles as much as possible, as we try to keep the (often shoddy) material we post ours only.
all good buddy. We will do the same
You guys are coooool. Just felt like dropping a line 🙂
Ha well thank you Mary, always nice to hear some kind words 😉
I am a journalist, currently studying at the Unversity of westminster and I was wondering whether I could get in touch with you for a feature that I’m working on.
I really like your blog and I admire your work. It would be great to get your quotes on my film-related feature.
Jordan and I would be more than happy to help out in any way we can. You just let us know what is required and we will do our very best to write what you need.
Look forward to working with you.
I’m so glad to hear that! Thank you very much : )
Would you prefer to send me an email to email@example.com , so that I can get in touch with you? I don’t want to bombard your blog with my stuff. 😉
Will do Maria, be in contact shortly.
Holy Crap! You guys have put a LOT of work into this site. I am truly impressed. AND I think I found a favorite new movie review site. You rock!
Haha, thanks mate! It’s pretty easy putting work into something when you’re passionate about it. Looking forward to hearing your thoughts on some of the films we cover!
Here you guys go: http://drakulus.com/2013/12/13/versatile-blogger-and-blog-of-the-year-awards/
Dark thanks mate! Enjoyed having you here and hearing your thoughts on all things movies so thanks for the kind gesture.
This is one of my favourite movie blogs online. Great reviews, and a good read. We share a lot of movie opinions! Keep it up guys 🙂
Hey guys! I can’t remember where you guys are from… Tas? I’m heading there for a few days in the new year! Any suggestions of places 😀
Hey mate! I am indeed from Tas and of course recommend Hobart as a beautiful capital city, the State Cinema and Burger Haus in North Hobart and a drive to Cradle Mountain and Wine Glass Bay. Have an awesome trip!
thanks buddy! If I had more time I’d see if we could collaborate something haha but we are pretty full on since we only have 3 days
Thanks for the tips. Our trip was fantastic!
Ah great! Glad to hear it. I just got back from a 2 week trip up the East Coast myself, gotta say, there really is worse places to live, ha.
We got into Hobart right in the middle of the Taste Festival! Food and drinks… why not! btw, is your blog your own customised design, or one of the templates. I’m looking at possibly upgrading soon. Any tips?
Ah nice timing! Salamanca is a fantastic spot.
Mate just stick with what you like and run with it ha, we’ve always used the Oxygen theme and are pretty happy with it.
What a lively site! Thanks for last night.
Cheers Terry, still a work in progress but it’s coming along nicely.
It’s just now that I have browsed your blog. I’m following. Cheers!
Great to hear buddy, look forward to some movie discussions.
I have nominated you for the A B C Award for blogging. I hope you will accept this award and pass it along to other deserving blogs. Please visit the page below to read the details. Thanks for your great work!

Always happy to support another film blogger mate 🙂

Hey thx for stoping at my blog and liking some things. I will subscribe via email if you subscribe via email too. Is that a deal? And also how did you like the review? Any tips?
Hi Micah a really neat little review mate looks like The Lego Movie is a must see for everyone young and old.
I’ve nominated you guys for a Liebster award (I know it’s normally for small-ish blogs but I wanted to share you with people), you can read the blog post here: http://vigil4ntre4per.wordpress.com/2014/03/06/liebster-award-wait-what/
We are but a small time operation mate so really appreciate it! It’s always awesome to know people are enjoying our stuff 😉
Thanks for dropping by my page. Although it was my first time to do a film review, it was nice to know that film critiques like you liked the way I wrote mine. Maybe — just maybe — I would do more reviews since I love watching films and television series, too. 🙂
Ken you can never have enough movie reviews, if you love the medium why not let the world know it’s always great to hear other peoples thoughts.
True. We can never have enough of a good thing. 🙂 Thanks!
Hey there! I love your blog and I nominated you for a Blog Award!
Cheers Flashback! Fantastic to hear your digging our work, we appreciate the kind gesture 🙂
Hey guys, I love reading your reviews. I’ve nominated you two for a sunshine award! http://drewreviewmovies.wordpress.com/2014/03/23/a-gift-from-cara-the-sunshine-award/
Thanks Drew! Always awesome to hear someone is digging our stuff, appreciate it mate.
I really enjoy your blog, so I’ve nominated you http://wp.me/p3sWVR-ha
Thanks so much Laura O 🙂
Hi guys and thanks for the like of my post about Transsiberian. I don’t get to the cinema often, it’s a fair hike to any of them from Geeveston so I practically never see movies when they are first released. I’ll be checking out some of your reviews.
We look forward to staying in contact 🙂
I agree wholeheartedly with Jordan regarding the Resident Evil movies. Watching them, you can’t tell if the filmmakers are trying too hard, or not at all. Pure, shameless fun.
BTW, thanks for the Like on my Dawn of the Planet of the Apes “review.” I’ll definitely be back to your guys’ blog!
Jordan will be stoked to hear about another fan of Resident Evil, look forward to hearing more from you mate in regards to all things film.
I went through both lists of your top 30 films, and it was not until the second list, third from the bottom that either of you mentioned the greatest film ever made. At least you both had John Carpenter’s The Thing on your lists. I’m going to click the follow button so that I can come back here and remind you on a regular basis that you missed it.
If that’s Jaws mate then I am glad you agree, I love Jaws and I know Jordan does to. Feel free to remind us about Jaws on a regular occasion. P.S – Long live The Thing!
I nominated you for a blogging award, you can check it out here
Hope you don’t mind!
Mate don’t mind at all! Cheers for thinking of us 🙂 and appreciate your continued support.
Looking at your categories. Do Australians consider US and British films “Foreign Films?” Or does “foreign” mean “not in English?”
Foreign is not in English mate.
Hi Guys, I guess it was a link to “Tracks” that sent you my way 😉 Thanks for dropping in at my blog, liking it..and introducing me to yours.. yay, movies!
Yeh Tracks was a great little Aussie flick 🙂 hope to keep you up to date on all movies great and small.
Thanks for reading my review, although my blogs mostly tech I hope to drop the odd film in there now and again. Your blogs full of interesting stuff.
Cheers mate hope we can let you know about a few great flicks you may never of seen or heard of.
Hi, thanks for stopping by on my blog! As a movie junkie by myself I am looking forward to read your tips! 😉 Have a nice day! Corina
Cheers Corina, hope to stay in touch in all things movies.
Great blog guys, the 15 questions pages were particularly entertaining. Thanks for recognising my review post, I put something up at least once a week in that department!
Thanks Katina. Always great to see someone write up a nice post about movies 🙂
