Pan's Labyrinth, a review by Rich


viva l'espana



Title: Pan's Labyrinth

Runtime:115
Certificate:15
Year:2006
Genres:Fantasy, Horror, Suspense/Thriller

Plot:Visionary director Guillermo del Toro (Hellboy, Blade II, The Devil's Backbone) creates a unique, richly imagined epic with PAN'S LABYRINTH, a gothic fairy tale set against the postwar era of Franco's Spain.

PAN'S LABYRINTH
unfolds through the eyes of Ofelia, a young girl uprooted to a remote military outpost commanded by her new stepfather. Powerless and lonely in a place of great danger, Ofelia lives out her own dark fable as she confronts monsters both otherworldly and human after she discovers a neglected labyrinth behind the family home. There she meets Pan, a fantastical creature who challenges her with three tasks which he claims will reveal her true identity.
My Review:
Definately not a kids film!!, I'd heard good things about this film and was not disappointed. Dark story with stunning and brutal graphic effects, this is an adult fantasy fairy tale every bit as scary as they were meant to be. Recommended

Fired Up, a review by Rich


Fired Up





They broke the mould with Porkys and Lemon Popsicle, nearly rebuilt it for American Pie, but teenage sex comedies such as this are just tedious and over populated.
I didn't really laugh once, it was dull to the extreme, poorly written with wooden actors, and impossible to warm to.
Do not waste your money.

TV Time-Travel Marathon, a review by Tom




Alternate Reality
My Name Is Earl
Bad Karma: An Earl Misadventure

A bonus episode on the first season's DVD set. A retelling of the pilot episode: Instead of seeing Carson Daly talking about karma on TV, he sees Stewie from Family Guy talking about vengeance. A fun little episode playing with the premise of the series.
