What an Experience: Udine FEFF

Udine Far East Film Festival‘s 15th edition kicked off on Friday 19th April, and CUEAFS  were there to cover the event. As a recent member of CUEAFS I was very, very happy to be at the festival.

My role at the festival was predominantly as … Continue reading What an Experience: Udine FEFF

Skyfall review

Bond’s loyalty to M is tested as her past comes back to haunt her. As MI6 comes under attack, 007 must track down and destroy the threat, no matter how personal the cost.

Bond is back in this visually stunning, action packed film that has a neat reminder that sometimes the old ways are the best. In typical Bond film fashion, it flits between the old and the new, staying true to the original franchise while including some new and exciting material.

An American Werewolf in London review

Two American tourists in Britain are attacked by a werewolf that none of the locals will admit exists.

An exciting blend of horror and comedy, An American Werewolf in London is any horror fans dream. Fantastically well directed by John Landis, also known for The Blues Brothers, as well as the more recent black comedy starring Simon Pegg, Burke and Hare, An American Werewolf in London stands out as one of the best horror films of all time. An homage to, and interpretation of the werewolf legend, it stays true to traditional werewolf lore, which works in its favor.
