My Thoughts:
This is another movie I haven't seen in several years. It is one I did enjoy though. I remembered liking it... but what I didn't remember is this one has it's share of gore in it. It also has cameos of not 1... not 2... but three genre actors well known to horror fans. There is... Robert Englund who of course played Freddy Krueger.  Then there is Kane Hodder who Played Jason in several of the Friday the 13th movies. And then there is Tony Todd who is well known as the Candyman. If by chance you never seen this movie... it is one I feel comfortable recommending.

My Rating

My Summer Of Love, a review by dfmorgan


My Summer Of Love


Part of

Imagine Me & You / My Summer of Love



Year: 2004
Director: Pawel Pawlikowski
Cast: Natalie Press, Emily Blunt, Paddy Considine
Overview: Mona (Natalie Press) has just got hold of a brilliant moped that only cost a tenner. No engine but still dirt-cheap. She lives with her brother, Phil (Paddy Considine) who used to run a pub before he found God and poured away all the booze. Tamsin (Emily Blunt) is rich, spoilt and trying to live a life of seductive decadence. They meet on the moors, above their quiet Yorkshire village and begin an intense, unlikely friendship. Tamsin and Mona want to escape their lives, but Phil wants to save them and save everybody else. Mona wants the old, dangerous, Phil back; the brother that she loved. Tamsin wants to see what it takes to break him.

Watched: 4th. Dec 2010
My Thoughts: As mentioned elsewhere a bit of faux pas by Universal to include this as part of a Romantic Comedy Double as although there is romance and some comedic pieces this is not a Rom/Com.

Overall I thought that this was and OK film. Some of the film could be used to sell Yorkshire as a county to visit because there was some stunning photography of the countryside, dales and woods. However the director used some techniques in the filming of the lead girls that left me cold. He seemed to me to be filming like a first time user of a camcorder with tops of heads cut off, jerky movement to close in to the face then a jerky movement back out. I wondered at first if this was his first film but found on IMDb that it wasn't. As already said an overall enjoyable film with a nice unexpected twist and with that enigmatic smile on Mona's (Natalie Press) face as she walks away at the end leaving one to ponder.

My Rating: Overall a 3 from me

SOUTH OF NOWHERE follows the Carlin family as they relocate to Los Angeles and quickly discover the're "not in Kansas anymore," even though the're really from Ohio. In L.A., life is much more complicated – for everyone. The family is challenged to look at life, and each other, with new eyes. Daughter Spencer, a pretty, athletic 16-year-old, begins to question everything: her friends, her boundaries, and – her sexuality. Her 17-year-old adopted brother Clay is African American, smart, and sarcastic. He is looking forward to the opportunity to connect with his culture but finds that being black in L.A. comes with its own set of expectations. Spencer and Clay's brother Glen, also 17, is outgoing, a star on the basketball court, popular with the girls – the guy everyone wants to be and be around. He seems to have the world in his pocket...but is L.A. challenging his notions of who he is, too? The Carlins may have moved cross-country, but ultimately they find that the real journey – finding out who you are and who you want to be – has left them feeling "south of nowhere."
