  • Jodorowsky's Dune

    Jodorowsky's Dune 2013

    ★★★★ Watched 26 Jun, 2015

    Finally, after many, many months, I had the opportunity to see this documentary and it didn't disappoint.

    There's some incredible anecdotes gathered from the visionary team (I love the creative workaround to cast Dali), and although I suspect, in hindsight, Jodorowsky is embellishing many of his initial ideas for purpose of this film, his version of Dune still remains one of the greatest 'what if' projects ever to emerge from genre cinema.

  • Kung Fury

    Kung Fury 2015

    ★★★★ Watched 01 Jun, 2015

    Had an absolute blast with this short. There's more fun and humour in those 30 minutes than the entire content of Robert Rodriguez's last five features.

    Puncture 2011

    ★★★½ Watched 19 May, 2012 2

    A well-made and surprisingly engrossing law drama with a stunning central performance from Chris Evans.

    Another example of a decent film inexplicably missing out on a big screen release. Hope it finds an audience on video.

  • Cabin Fever 2: Spring Fever

    Cabin Fever 2: Spring Fever 2009

    ★★★½ Added 3

    Ti West may have disowned it but there's a lot to like about this twisted sequel. Porky's by way of John Waters and Troma.
