SACRED HEART REVIEWED
“Sacred Heart” is proof of something. Even Australia could make Pure Flix look cool. Balancing mental horror with severe religious underpinnings produces a film that treats the duality of religious constructs with sincerity. This is a delightful little film that shows anyone can lose it all and then advance to far worse things. Enjoyable, but I would only watch it once.

“Revenge” should be a feminist rallying cry of a film. However, director Kjersti Steinsbo goes out of her way to avoid the soft crutch of feminist film ranting. In fact, the lead heroine is impulsive and makes mistakes that almost derail her quest for revenge. Sure, the big bad hotelier is an evil man worthy of being taken down. I just appreciate that the heroine isn’t shown as this Divine Female force that just stumbled into the path of a big bad. Character development is good, people.

THE DAWNSEEKER REVIEWED
“The Dawnseeker” wasn’t that good. I hate starting coverage that way, but sometimes it has to be that way. It’s a distant future that involves people being sent to another planet on a mineral hunt. What follows is dialogue and a story that feels like it belongs to a PS1 game in 1997. Not a fan at all and barely finished this one.

SIX ROUNDS REVIEWED
“Six Rounds” is about a boxer named Stally trying to decide his future. Shot in amazing Black and White cinematography, the film uses quick splashes of color to help permeate the A or B choices facing Stally’s future. The usual lynchpins are there from privileged girlfriend to rough societal pressure. What makes the film stand out is the tremendous performance from the lead actor Adam J. Bernard. Bernard got some attention as John Boyega’s stand-in on the recent Star Wars movies. However, I feel that he is a talent to keep watching.

The Plot Thus Far
Sacred Heart – Sacred Heart chronicles the journey of a religious man, who rejects God and his faith, after the tragic death of his pregnant wife and then challenges the Devil. He receives a visit from his priest, who pushes him to question his own beliefs. The Priest turns out to be a mirror of his own insanity, pushing the boundaries between heaven and hell.
Revenge – Travelling under a false identity, Rebekka sets out on a mission to confront Morten Holand whom she shares a dark secret surrounding the death of her sister. As her plan falls apart, Rebekka is forced to face the devastating consequences of her actions and must decide how far she is willing to go to seek revenge.
The Dawnseeker – 2245, the Earth’s sun has dwindled and no longer provides the energy needed to sustain human life. Five hired mercenaries travel to an uncharted planet to collect a rare mineral known as stardust to replenish the dying star. After their spaceship crashes on the alien planet, they are stalked and hunted by a creature far more advanced than anything they have ever encountered before.
Starring Franziska Schissler, Alexander Kane, Jason Skeen and Khu, The Dawnseeker marks the fifth feature film from director Justin Price (Alien : Reign of Man).
Six Rounds – a proper youth movie set against the London Riots of 2011, as a young boxer tries to define his future.
