The Ghosts

The Ghosts

An homage to the 50s, Rock n’ Roll, and most of all to teenage years. Eddie O’Keefe’s The Ghosts is the suburban, middle class equivalent of The Warriors. Props for the great soundtrack.

Tick Tock

Tick Tock

Written and directed by Ien Chi, Tick Tock follows – in reverse – the story of Emit (get it?) who’s led to believe that he only has 5 mins left to live. Neat movie, although the captions are overkill.

Lazy Teenage Superheroes

Lazy Teenage Superheroes

(NSFW: Language) Michael Ashton’s Lazy Teenage Superheroes is the opposite of Kick Ass – jerks who have super powers but only use them to help themselves. Not bad for a film that cost $300.
