My Interview With "Attack The Block" John Boyega And Director Joe Cornish

As I promised a reader earlier this week, below is the link to my interview with actor John Boyega, and writer/director Joe Cornish for Because of space restrictions I wasn’t able to print all they had to say, but take it from me, they’re both terrific and down to earth guys with lots of interesting things to say.

And I still stand my rave of Attack The Block as my favorite film of the summer (…wait one of two. I really really liked Terrance Malick’s Tree of Life as well) and one of the best film of the year. It’s a wonderfully old fashioned 70’s B horror film clearly and proudly inspired by the films of the period by John Carpenter (especially Assault On Precinct 13) Tobe Hooper, Wes Craven, Joe Dante and Walter Hill.
