The Cove (2009)

Good news for fans of the George Clooney, Brad Pitt led Oceans Eleven series, you can stop waiting for an Oceans 14 and get your heist movie fix in the most unlikely of places; The Cove…

Food Inc. (2008)

As is plainly stated in the film, the food industry is no longer growing or producing food, it is creating it – whether it be through hormones in living creatures or through genetically modified seeds.

Director Sam Raimi returns to horror, the genre that gave birth to his career after completing the low-budget classic The Evil Dead in 1983. Raimi’s films have, for the most part, incorporated dark themes (I just won’t mention the atrocious For Love Of The Game – oh no, too late!), and horror is a genre that fits the director like a glove…
