From The Editor – We’re on holidays!

Morning friends! I thought it might be an appropriate time to let all our faithful readers know that for the next few weeks, there will not be any new posts on the website. Yes, for the first time since May 2008, we’re having a mini-hiatus! I’m taking the family off on a well-deserved holiday interstate for a fortnight, so there won’t be any new posts up here until May 1st. So fear not, new stuff is coming, it’s just being kept in reserve until I return!

From The Editor – A new logo & The Landmark Series begins!

Afternoon folks! Well, if you’re a sharp eyed observer you’ll have already noticed our shiny new site logo at the top of this page. We’ve stepped away from our favourite font, Impact, for the first time since 2008, and removed the “busy” looking film-reel motif that’s been around since we upgraded the site midway through 2015. The reason for the changes are two-fold.

1000th Review Celebration! – Our New Ratings System

Some time back, as we approached the impending publication of our 1000th review, we decided that that would be as good a time as any to change-up our movie ratings template. For 999 reviews, we’ve used a “10 star” system, which has served us well. But with such arbitrary allocation of a numerical value on a work of art, we’d been considering going over to a less restrictive alphabetical system, with room for “wiggles”. So, as you’ll see below, we’ve gone with the A to F rating system, which is…

From The Editor – Our milestone 1000th Review!!

Good morning folks! Well, what an amazing day we have here: finally, we’ve reached an amazing milestone, with today marking the publication of our 1000th movie review. 1000 is a nice, huge number, and it’s great to finally have made the journey. Those late-900’s were a bit of a killer, to be honest. What movie will it be, you ask. We’re not gonna tell – you’ll have to check back later today to find out. But it’s a biggie, rest assured.

We will not support Voltage Pictures, and here’s why.

Ever seen The Hurt Locker? Maybe you dipped into Don Jon, that hilarious Joseph Gordon-Levitt flick from 2013? Perhaps you’re anticipating the release of Adam Sandler’s The Cobbler? Or, did you suck up and witness the brain-flap of The Dallas Buyers Club? If you did, you should know that all those films (plus a bunch of others nobody here at Fernby Films gives a shit about) were produced by a company known as Voltage Pictures. They’re an American movie studio currently doing the rounds of planet Earth trying to prosecute…

From The Editor – 30.11.13 – November Nightmares Concludes!

What a journey it’s been. The last month has been a scary, horrifying, bloody assault on the cinematic senses – often to our detriment, I might add – and we hope you’ve all enjoyed it. What did we all learn during this month-long exploration of all things horror? Did we learn that the vast majority of modern horror films are abject rubbish? Or that not all “classics” are really any good? Or did we learn that there’s not too much new under the sun? Tell us, what did you learn…
