As a fan of low budget movies this one recently caught my eye and at just €252.76 they don’t come much lower. It was made by a group of friends from Arklow, County Wicklow and premiered last September at he Reel Film Festival in Cork. More here: “The Lads Movie”
Described as “Love/Hate meets Dumb and Dumber” it’s in the Dark Comedy/Thriller genre. While it’s hard to make much out from the trailer below it’s surely worth the price of admission? So, for one week starting on September 21st the movie can be see at Omniplex cinemas in Rathmines, Cork, Limerick and Arklow.
The first episode of RTÉ 2’s new comedy mini-series aired on November 13th, 2017 and to use that horrible cliché – hit the ground running. If ‘in your face’ contemporary Irish humour is your thing this series is a must see. Not for the faint-hearted and far better than this trailer would indicate. If the remaining five episodes are even half as funny!
As a huge fan of Pat Shortt I was stunned by the trailer for his latest film – “The Flag” – see what you think.
Pat Shortt is a down on his luck Irish builder living in London with a musical past and a broken heart, who returns to Ireland following the death of his father. As he goes through his late dad’s possessions, he stumbles across a letter from his grandfather saying he was the man who raised the Irish flag over the GPO during the 1916 Rising.
The flag – so the letter claims – is now hanging upside down in an English army barracks, and Harry embarks on a mission to find the flag, bring it home, and fly it above the GPO once again for the commemorations of the Rising,
Can the film really be as bad as the trailer would seem to indicate?
The Flag is on general release in Irish cinemas tomorrow (Oct.14th) but on the basis of what I’ve seen I’ll be waiting for the DVD or a Netflix release.
The makers of “Christmas at Draculas” are back with a new black comedy project and you can get in on the action for as little as €10. Funding for the project is through Fundit.ie and I can recommend it as a bit of harmless fun. I have help to fund a a couple of movies and a book through Fundit.ie.
