'Gin' A Short Film.

Image
We've had to delay our old film project 'See You Soon' due to lack of funding but that isn't dampening our spirits or slowed us down. In the mean time Velvet Film & More Productions has a new short film project for you, we call it; Gin.

Gin  is a short film about a young boy who is bullied, doesn't live in the best conditions and almost has nothing to call his own, but there is a light at the end of the tunnel for him when he finds something that will help this teenager get a little more than nothing for once. Gin is the young boy that a lot of us can relate to and by the end of the film you'll find yourself feeling envy that Gin found the chance we all want or work for.

We have finally launched our Indiegogo campaign to try and raise £500 to help make the film we think you NEED to see as we work to make honest, entertaining and high quality films for you guys!Every contribution as a perk to give you in return; these perks included, signed shooting scripts, s…

New 'Into the Woods' Trailer.

Image
It's finally here the epic movie event this Christmas 'Into the Woods' a Disney film that ties in some of our most know fairy tales with a twist!

This movie looks awesome and how can it not with things we dream of in it, as well as a dream cast; Meryl Streep, Johnny Deep, Emily Blunt, Anna Kendrick and James Corden. This magic musical has every element and all the potential to be a great family film; you have Meryl's great voice that she showed off in Mama Mia, Johnny Depp who is always brilliant playing the wolf which seems like a darker more together version of the Mad Hatter and I feel it's given James Corden a chance to really show his talent other than just being a comedy actor.

With films like Alice in Wonderland, Jack the Giant Slayer and Maleficent being successful and loved among audiences, we have now been reassured that we can watch more of these fantasies and not have to wait too long for it either!

Check out the trailer below!

Shiloh Fernandez Is New Selena Gomez Video.

Image
Now it may seem a bit weird me posting about Selena Gomez, who I have no crimes with but isn't really my kind of taste if you know what I mean. However, I saw she tweeted about her new track being no.1, so my curiosity was tweeked as always, as to whether it was a good song or not.

So as I'm watching the video, I'm enjoying myself I'm ready to watch more and as I do BAM! Shiloh Fernandez suddenly appeared! I am a big fan of Shiloh due to films such as Evil Dead (2013) & Deadgirl which are both horrors, so to adore him for horror and then see him portraying some hipster, drinking, prick in a pop video I was just surprised.

However both Shiloh & Selena have had acting experience so on the performance side they played angst and corrupt couple pretty well; I can't really comment on the song if I'm honest with you guys, but Ill put in the video so you guys can judge it for yourself!

Good luck to Selena with her new stuff and lets hope I'll be seeing Shilo…

Entertainment Weekly's Reunion Issue 2014.

Image
Entertainment Weekly have bought out this years Reunion Issue and it's looking amazing! Including the cast reunion of Ghostbusters taking the cover; it also includes cast reunions of Mean Girls  & even  The Fabulous Baker Boys!

You can expect great interviews and reminiscing with the likes of Lindsay Lohan, Bill Murray, Jeff Bridges, Michelle Pfeiffer and more!

I loved the interview with Michelle Pfeiffer and Jeff & Beau Bridges as each story doesn't match with the other one; it's not surprising though since this film is 25 years old and they haven't worked together since! However, Pfeiffer still enjoyed her time back with the boys noting how much chemistry as brothers they have and that each year seems to making Jeff more of a boy!

But don't listen to me describe each interview, so read & buy this amazing issue, trust me you don't want to miss this Ghostbusters reunion!

Fury (2014) Review-ish.

Image
Cast; Brad Pitt, Shia LaBeouf, Logan Lerman, Michael Pena, Jon Bernthal.
Written & Directed by; David Ayer.

Fury is a war film based in World War 2 that follows Don 'War Daddy' Collier and his tank crew through their fight in Nazi Germany. When the assistant driver is killed in battle, Norman Ellison is assigned the position; however, Norman is an army 'newbie', an army typist rather than gunman and far from ready for the things he must do and see.

Seeing this film was an experience I will truly remember forever, as well as entertaining me, it made my heart break, my mouth laugh and my eyes cry.

War, I feel, is difficult to portray on film due to getting the facts straight, trying to keep all the people that fought on the represented side happy and not insulted, etc. When you tattle a war film, it's a battle in itself, but this film fought hard and won. It's hard to find extreme realism in film these days because 9 times out 10 things will be added or exagge…

Horns (2014) Review.

Image
Cast; Daniel Radcliffe, Juno Temple, Max Minghella, Joe Anderson. Directed By; Alexandre Aja. Based on: Horns by Joe Hill.

Horns is a film about Ig Parrish; who is accused of murdering his true love, with paparazzi and the towns people making his life hell as they won’t take innocent as an answer. Everything changes for Ig though as he begins sprouting devilish horns out of his head that give him a special paranormal power which he uses to find out whom truly murdered his beloved Merrin.
This film has true cult movie written all over it! It’s a fantastic story that is shown in a great backwards and forwards in time way. Relationships are built well and the humor in this film is great. The only issue I had with it was that I wasn’t really surprised at whom the murderer turned out to be, I didn’t necessarily guess who it was, but I had no need to gasp in shock either. I did get a bit fussy about the amount of use of CGI snakes in the movie but I can appreciate its symbolism. I came out the …

Ouija (2014) Review.

Image
Cast; Olivia Cooke, Darren Kagasoff, Douglas Smith. Director; Stiles White.
Ouija is a 2014 horror film about a group of friends who use an Ouija board to try and communicate with their friend who recently and surprisingly hung herself with her fairy lights. But of course this is a horror film, so the communication they make is not a heart-warming reunion with their loved one but much more haunting. Slowly one by one they are being killed by deceased, deranged and murderous spirits of a Mother and Daughter; but which one is really the murderer?
Now even though almost every review I saw of this movie was terrible, I had to see it for myself, I was intrigued as to why it was apparently so terrible! Also I am a massive Texas Chainsaw fan and a producer of Texas also produced this movie. I will tell you though, this film is not majorly gory, there are no chainsaws and although I wasn’t impressed with it I was entertained, but this movie will probably get lost in the pile of other teen or for…
