DVD ROUNDUP: DJ TITUS EDITION


One of Netflix's better original drama's is the genuinely hilarious Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt. Based around Kimmy (Ellie Kemper), who is now freed from the doomsday cult that kept her locked in a bunker for 15 years, we see her trying to hide her past as she tries to form a life for herself in New York City. Helped along by flat mate Titus (Tituss Burgess), she often embarrasses herself with her lack of knowledge about modern life, and more often than not modern life has disappointed her (I still laugh at the party scene that features Johnny Dangerous' "Beat That Bitch With A Bat"). If you didn't get a chance to enjoy this comedy on Netflix, then I highly recommend you pick up a DVD copy.

Wow, Nicholas Hoult has come a long way from playing the little kid in About a Boy. Kill Your Friends, based on the novel by John Niven, see Hoult play an A&R man during the hight of Britpop who murders his way to success. Sounding more than a little like the iconic American Psycho, this film has received an onslaught of bad reviews, mainly towards its casts dreary acting, as well as the unlikable characters. One things for sure, the soundtrack is set to be good.




Starring ex-model Agyness Deyn, Sunset Song see's a farm girl come of age on the eve of World War I. Directed by Terence Davies, Sunset Song promises some excellent cinematography, this film sets to be a meditative and lyrical film, which may veer just on the cusp of boring for some. Either way, if the IMDb plot keywords are anything to go by, we can count on some "male rear nudity" at least.
