Machotaildrop – Film Review

05 June 2010, 19.31 | Posted in film | No comments »

Machotaildrop Dose.ca

The folks behind Machotaildrop invited me to review their film for Dose.ca. The article went live today:

Machotaildrop is the story of a young skateboarder who realizes his dream of going pro and riding for the greatest company in the world: Machotaildrop.

That said, this isn’t your average Hollywood skate flick. First of all, viewers of a certain disposition – that is, anyone who’s ever picked up a skateboard – will be able to sit through it’s entirety and walk away with their dignity intact. Surprised? Machotaildrop avoids many of the common skate flick pitfalls through whimsical, fantastical imagery and a very light-hearted approach. If you consider yourself a connoisseur of skateboarding, alternate reality or just plain weird films, you will find pleasure in Machotaildrop.”

Read the full text here and catch the flick in your city when it rolls through. It’s worth it.

(Playing in Toronto at the Royal Theatre, June 11 to 15.)

Nose Before Hoes & MACHOTAILDROP

Nose Before Hoes MACHOTAILDROP Peter Williams
If Nose Before Hoes were a Tumblr, it would be called fuckyeahfrankgerwersnose. If that doesn’t mean anything to you: it’s a photo blog dedicated to Frank Gerwer’s nose, and it’s amazing.

In related news, I recently got my hands on a copy of MACHOTAILDROP and pulled some shots of Gerwer as “Frank Nose.” Check em all after the click. Thanks Annie!

Dead Snow – Norwegian Nazi Zombies!

Rad Collector Peter Williams - Dead Snow

I still haven’t seen Frozen, but at this point Norway’s Dead Snow takes it for best cold-weather horror flick of the year. Unfortunately there’s no snowboarding, but we do get a taste of extreme snowmobiling (snow-scootering? Ha. See the trailer.) Anyways, let’s get to the point: Nazi Zombies. If you like the sounds of that (it’s Evil Dead style) you won’t be disappointed.

Rad Collector Peter Williams - Dead Snow

Check the trailer below. Can’t hate on Scandinavian snow bunnies (well, unless they have dreads.)
