  • I was able to rent it out circa 1995 from a regular video store but have never seen it turn up anywhere since.

    Have recollection of it being in Late Night Movies, Donnybrook.




  • I'd love to see Reefer and the Model, just because of the name, which used to be mentioned all the time in the papers.


    Copy here.. I'm sure you could change the language option?

    Looks like a press booklet rather a VHS tape.

    English audio is usually an option on German DVDs alright - but not on VHS.




  • Bound to have royalties of some kind coming in

    One episode of Father Ted doesn't count for much, these days


    Saw Song For a Raggy Boy recently on TV, hadnt heard about it before
    The true story of a single teacher's courage to stand up against an untouchable prefect's sadistic disciplinary regime and other abuse in a Catholic Reformatory and Industrial School in 1939 Ireland.

    living in a homeless shelter around this time last year before they kicked him out. a couple of court appearances around that time as well.

    Yeah, not going to get much for a cameo. Could have picked to a bit doing the Fr Ted “circuit” alright.

    Also, I believe with acting it’s called a “residual”.

    He/him/his

  • Mod: I think it'd be fairer to stick to talking about the forgotten Irish fillums than about an actor who's fallen on hard times. As the saying goes, all that stands between any of us and homelessness are two pay cheques.

    I think that you'll find plenty of better contenders for that award including "Fatal Deviation" (1998) an Irish martial arts movie and a long-time favourite amongst boardsies. :D



    I think it's a toss up TBH. Fatal Deviation had zero budget. Strength And Honour had quite a lot of money behind it but still managed to be an unmitigated pile of shyte. I remember reading a quote from one of the backers somewhere who said when he saw the end result he felt like he might as well have thrown his money into the ditch.




  • Set in a sec shop off Grafton Street:

    I even mentioned that film a few pages b4 your first post. I remember it having a great sex scene.

    Saw a bit of it, it wasn't too bad I think?
    I Went Down was pretty good, kinda in that forgotten category now.

    It seems a lot of Irish movies that come out on physical format become very hard to find very quickly. That was fairly successful too in box office terms, I saw it in a near full cinema when it came out.

    I remember there was an Australian DVD release around 1999 or so. And then nothing until 2011 when it came out before Christmas on region 2. I'd say the pressing quantity was small enough and sold reasonably quickly.

    I think it's aimng for a deliberately terrible Troma vibe, but it's so rotten.
    The nearest it has to a name is dear old Brian deSalvo of every voiceover on East Coast FM as the Don.




  • This thread is just a list of Xtravision "Exclusives"!




  • I remember picking up Dead Long Enough on dvd about 10 years ago in Xtra Vision. It was based in Donegal I believe and It had Michael Sheen playing a character called Harry Jones-The Man with the Bones. It was a bit lame.

  • Remember RTEs "Ireland On Film" season which they ran circa 98/99? A lot of the films mentioned were shown including I Went Down and a good few more obscure films like Alisa and Korea.
