Hello fellow, film lovers so last nights film was ‘PET’ we thought we would give it a shot! I wasn’t too sure what to expect. A lot of films like this sound promising in their synopsis and then turn out to be bland, cliché-ridden, run-of-the-mill rubbish!. The film does start pretty quickly, but even so you still don’t really understand what the underlying message really is apart from the film starts off with a male stalker who works for a vets institution who is  trying to get this girl to go out with him, then after the failed attempts, he then decides to go down the ‘Kidnapping route’ Then things get really interesting, the majority of the rest of the film, then focuses on the underground basement/room where he has captured the girl. People may think it will turn a little like SAW in someparts which is partly true just not as Gory, I mean yeah OK chopping a finger off, and killing another person and then chopping them up to the feed the dogs – yeah that’s pretty gruesome but that was about it in terms of SAW-Like stuff we saw.

I think overall the film was OK, it did have its tense moments, also there is a plot twist in the middle of the film, where you don’t feel as sorry for the captured girl (I won’t go into details here, because I don’t want to spoil it for the ones who haven’t seen this as of yet), also the weird, sadistic love story is strange to say the least! On the whole the film leads up to a very well done final scene. I honestly had no idea how they were going to finish the film, but the way they chose to do it was a good ending in my opinion. ‘Pet’ is a very fine movie that will please thriller lovers endlessly, but also may bore some in the interim.

Seen the film? We’d LOVE to hear your comments – comment below.

As you know we are fanatics about Film here! We Simply LOVE films as this is our Core-business, and so when where out of office, we are watching the newest and some old films, well last night myself and partner was flicking through the Sky Movies Demand service, and came across a film called K-Shop the picture looked pretty cool, so thought why not give it a whirl..

Well its quite a long film, (120mins) to be precise, so 2 hours like a Lord Of The Rings Sequel!

Seeing that it was pure British, we though’t we would venture in and watch it, basically the film is about A horror film with a message. This is not going to be for everyone but it’s the modern version of the Sweeney Todd and not to mention British story except that Sweeney is an immigrant that faces drunk people in his kebab shop he opens with his father. When some drunk are trying to enter the shop and the father got killed Salah goes Mental, and wants to seek revenge for the death of his father But there’s more going on.

The film starts off very well normal big city Saturday night drunkenness, then there are some parts of the film where they do drag out (just a little), the story isn’t bad though, the fact that there’s a Kebab shop who serve up more than Kebab meat is definitely something to watch, the first scene did look like we was watching SAW.

The characters are very believable in this too – which is always a good point.

To Sum it up: This film is definitely worthy of a watch, we did enjoy it just seemed to go on and on and on (you get the drift), but if your looking for alternative horror then this film is probably for you. Least now we can say we have watched it, and hence the review so we can tell our Avid Readers what we thought of it.

So it’s that time again, film time, we don’t open on Sundays so today was our closest day to blog about it, but as always myself and partner sat down to our daily evening film and we decided to watch; The Good Neighbour – Now normally this really isn’t my cup of tea at all because I cannot stand Camcorder films not sure why but they just make things look a little low budget (apart from Cloverfield which I LOVED) and a little amateur!

Anyway for some reason this film did catch my eye, so I thought lets give it a shot..

So here is my personal review on ‘The Good Neighbour’

So basically the film is about – The Good Neighbour has both drama and suspense as standard the film is a crime-thriller. It reminded me a bit of “I Am Not a Serial Killer”, it is written and filmed in an extraordinarily sophisticated  style and will exceed most viewers initial expectations, as i stated earlier EVEN for me as I normally don’t do camcorder films!

There are teen friends, one whom has wealth and technical expertise at his disposal and his eyes on MIT, and his friend who has plenty of ingenuity and fortitude and interest in social research but is from a “broken home”. The pair undertake a social-psychological experiment, and use the grouchy, solitary old grump of the neighborhood as their unwitting subject. For their experiment, they equip the old grumps home with numerous hidden cameras and electrical devices in order to manipulate the grumps home appliances, fixtures, gadgets and such. They are then able to remotely control and view everything that occurs, pretty technical right!?

They soon realize that the old man is a rather unusual subject. He has a basement securely locked from the outside, a mysterious visiting woman, no apparent fear towards the extreme tactics they make to convince him he’s haunted, and he’s unpredictability violent and destructive. One teen begins to regret conducting the experiment, the other one is determined that the old man is hiding a dark secret, personally I thought he was either torturing someone or keeping them held hostage.. The teens watch, record and attempt to manipulate the old man for weeks in hopes of revenge, online views, and uncovering the old mans secrets.

Throughout the film there are segments where a prosecutor speaks to and interrogates different people on the witness stand. This makes it clear that the “experiment” didn’t play out so well. This film had me hypothesizing and thoroughly engaged, the whole film kept my mind guessing what was the actual plot and drama of it, as it was unclear, as it kept going back to a court case, so we knew someone was in trouble but for what ?

This film is well worth a watch, I personally loved it! It was very cleverly written and performed, and the fact it was a camcorder film well that just wins it for me. Maybe watch this one, its starts pretty much straight away and has a simple storyline to follow, you can also relate to the characters of the movie (always good)

So we didn’t go to the cinema yesterday afterall to see Resident Evil, simply because (after a long day of work here at DVDLocker) we had a little shall we say cat nap? And in turn missed the viewing (oops), anyway when we woke up we watched Run All Night – see our indepth review below but we thought this would be a good choice simply because both myself and partner LOVE the Taken saga’s, and of course the famous Liam Neeson stars in this film so we did have rather high hopes, just no sign of Kim!

Liam Neeson plays retired hit-man, James Conlon, and it’s one of the finest roles he’s played in years with a great performance, and with additional superb acting from Joel Kinnaman, whom plays his son, Mike Conlon. The first ‘Taken’ may have turned out great, until it launched a franchise, but ‘Run All Night’ is a definite improvement over Neeson’s latest work, and a major improvement over clichéd action movies released in the past decade. What makes it so good, is that Neeson brings company with him: his co-star Kinnaman who plays his son – and it’s a different movie experience altogether as in most clichéd action thrillers the main protagonist, usually played by a familiar action star, is usually without company the whole way through. The character James Conlon is so similar to Jimmy Bobo, a part Sylvester Stallone played in a movie called ‘Bullet to the Head’. Jimmy Bobo was an ageing hit-man who still made hits on assignments, but compared to Conlon, he’s more emotionless and merciless. Neeson’s Conlon still had good in his heart somewhere, whereas Bobo cared more about killing and seeking vengeance. However, the action sequences are enjoyable and thrilling, acting is great and the direction and screen writing becomes intriguing whenever the main plot kicks in – so Run All Night has what it takes of being one of the most exciting movies of the year (well back then) We love trying out some old, new and everything in between here, this is also what we offer our customers at www.dvdlocker.co.uk This film is sure to be a hit for your evening entertainment, I would have to say Action at one of its best!! Well done – great movie!

Happy Wednesday people, so the sun is shining (yay for Summer) and here is our daily blog/film review, if your fortunate to be following us on Twitter @Dvd_locker you would already know that Conjuring 2 was our next film to review, as we always give our followers a heads up before we blog!

So lets begin, we sat down last night and you guessed it.. watched Conjuring 2 we like to mix it up a little abit like our Movie Box’s we don’t like watching the same genre day in day out, I mean we love variety and we assume you do to!

So this film is filmed in London, England, UK which was quite nice to see a British take on the film, The Conjuring 2 doesn’t waste time in bringing on the scare factor!. By that, I mean you’re pretty much lulled into the Conuring world pretty soon after the opening credits (around 3 minutes in.. you get deep)

The Warrens are sent on behalf of the church to investigate some paranormal activity which is whipping up a media storm in Enfield, England and, as per the first movie, they go and attempt to work on the situation. As per the first movie, a family is being haunted and they fear for their sanity and lives. There are a few new twists this time round, so all does not play out as before – but it’s not a complete departure from the format, which might have made it a bit more gripping in places.

James Wan’s trademark visual style is repeated in this movie – his bag of tricks sometimes yielding a sense of deja vu but generally working like a charm. When it’s intended to scare, it really does. The scares come a bit more frequently than in the first movie and do manage to build a lot of tension, even if you’ve seen the original, so well done to Wan for that, We really was clenching our shoulders, and perching on the edge of our seats!

What’s really enjoyable about this movie, is its recreation of 70s England. Wan has really done a great job of this, which is surprising given that he’s not from there. Also, the central support role of Janet Hodgson is pretty crucial to empathising with the Enfield family and Madison Wolfe gives a solid, all round performance.

It’s arguable this one is as strong as the first. I really enjoyed it and would recommend it to anyone who enjoyed part one, or indeed likes movies of a haunting or supernatural themes.

The film is quick, querky and as already explained scary! It gets tense very quickly, and thickly this film is a must for fans of paranormal and haunting genres – this one is definitely for you!
