This week we forcibly ejected 50 Shades of Grey, and instead opted to give the “other guys” a chance.

In ‘Off the Shelf’ we looked at Spione, Enemy, Sake Bomb, Shanghai 13 and For Love’s Sake. Our highlights of the week are The Theory of Everything, Big Hero 6 and Kingsman.

After such an action packed show, we’re off to vegetate in front of something trashy.

And now we’re going to hide over there until the Internet Overlord has been burped and put down for a nap.

That’s it from Noframeof.com – Bye Now

November 2010 – I set up a blog as an outlet for me to talk about movies, nothing serious, just a test bed for my thoughts and whatnot. Worked well too, I found my style as a movie writer and found my niche too. I set up a movie podcast with a friend and fellow blogger, which unfortunately drew to an untimely close. Noframeof.com has served me brilliantly well over the past 4 years.

But just before I started this website I started a radio show on what seemed like a whim at the time. That radio show was the geek show. That project has grown leaps and bounds to the point that we are now laying the foundations into turning that into a real business. A really real business. So instead of spreading myself thinly over a growing website and a blog, I decided to call it a day with the blog. It’s a truly sad day.

Not only that, I have found that point where I can no longer maintain this blog, my writing has developed to the point where it has been cited in the promotional materials of certain DVD releases. Uploading my work on both a blog and a website is cheapening my material. As bad as that sounds, its true. Henceforth, all of my writing will be migrating over to the geek show, either as a written or spoken word review on the radio show. So please, continue to follow me over there at thegeekshow.co.uk.

Thank you to everybody who has read, commented, or linked to this little old place over the years. Its appreciated like you can never imagine.

Branded to Kill

The textbook example of a film misunderstood in its own time, upon releasing Branded to kill the legendary Japanese director Seijun Suzuki was fired by Nikkatsu Studios because the film didn’t make any money and made even less sense. Nikkatsu even went to the length of refusing to release it, a decision that saw court action and Suzuki ejected from the film-making community for a decade. Now in 2014, it’s getting a splendid print from one of the most renowned boutique Blu-ray labels in the world, a veritable treat for the films substantial cult following. Continue reading

Sullivan's Travels (1941)

During the rise of Hollywood in the glamorous era that spanned the 1920s to the 40s, the industry was undoubtedly anchored by producers, opposing the director that contemporary cinema has established as the norm. All the same, a few directors carved out names for themselves with Preston Sturges one of the enduring examples, as a pioneer of studio comedy. Of all his successes Arrow Academy has opted to release his greatest achievement onto the Blu-ray market, Sullivan’s Travels. Continue reading
