Reviews

Book Review:

The Great Media Debate - Barry Lowe's - "Media Mythologies" reviewed in the context of who decides what we consume - the consumer or the media? Or neither and both feeding off each other creating a false and very deceptive reality for all?

Our Pick of weird Golden Oldie Classic DVD Video Reviews: 

  • Virgin Suicides: **** This film almost has it. We start in middle class affluent America of the 70's. The beautiful innocent young America with its catholic naivety and young cherubs bursting with anticipation for love.

  • Supernova: * This film with fairly unknown actors is about a fairly remote portion of the galaxy and should have been made in Italy, because that's about as close it gets to a supernova. The young and sexually exuberant crew of the paramedic ship receives a distress call from a rogue moon.

Film projects:Treatment {if you are interested in a film project presented here please contact the magazine or the contact given in the treatment }
