Trailer Trash! – Death Wish

Hostel director Eli Roth ventures into the realm of gritty urban vengeance with his remake of Death Wish, the Charles Bronson-headlined franchise from the 70’s that I was never allowed to watch back in the day. Obviously, you’d have to put Bruce Willis into the lead role as a man exacting revenge Batman-style on the city’s criminal elements following the brutal murder of his wife; whether Roth’s film will ask the tough question of vigilantism in today’s gun-soaked political atmosphere…. well, we’ll have to wait and see.

Normally detesting these kinds of bios, Rodney's keen love of film more often outclasses his ability to write convincingly about them. Never blessed with a body worthy of a porn star, nor being the heir to a wealthy industrialists fortune, nor suffering the tragedy of having his parents murdered outside a Gotham theater, Rodney is, contrary to popular opinion, neither Ron Jeremy, JD Rockefeller, or Batman. As a serious appreciator of film since 1996, Rodney's love affair with the medium has continued with his online blog, Fernby Films, a facility allowing him to communicate with fellow cineasts in their mutual love of all things movie.
