He constantly taunts his recovering alcoholic son with drink in hand and a drunken swagger. There is also the underlining sense of an impending confrontation that will erupt into violence.
Midway through, things turn ominous as certain truths are revealed and the film shifts direction from a family drama ...

Retro Movie Review – Ted
The surprises continue with the acting with Mark Wahlberg proving himself particularly adept at this style of raunchy comedy and his rapid-fire white-trash name recital is one of the film’s most laugh out loud moments. Ted, the CGI created teddy bear voiced by MacFarlane himself also defies simple categorization by being both offensive and inviting at the same time.
Elsewhere taste is stretched to the absolute limit and this nothing off limits approach is ...

Retro Movie Review – Snowpiercer
In 1982 a French graphic novel (that’s the adult term for a comic) postulated a world thrown into an ice age where the remnants of humanity are trapped on a train that never stops. Thirty years later we have an international film (Korean director Bong Joon Ho and ensemble cast) to take us on that ride.
If you thought peak hour trains were bad, wait until you see Snowpiercer. At the back of the train (1001 cars long according to the comic) are the underclass, given barely enough food to ...
