  • To the Devil a Daughter

    To the Devil a Daughter 1976

    ★½ Watched 09 Feb, 2016

    This is what you get when a studio on the wane witnesses the success of Rosemary's Baby and The Exorcist and tries to replicate it without understanding what made either of those films so great in the first place. Also, Hammer here have confused "unpleasant" with "scary". On a positive tip, there's some fine footage of London past and intermittent bouts of Christopher Lee Manic Grinning.

  • The Plague of the Zombies

    The Plague of the Zombies 1966

    ★★★ Watched 31 Jan, 2016

    André Morell is so badass in this that it's a shame that there wasn't a whole series of "Sir James Forbes: Zombie Slayer" pictures.

    Last Year at Marienbad 1961

    An ambiguous story that I may or may not have enjoyed.

    Only kidding: I unambiguously found it impenetrable and increasingly irritating, in no small part because of the intermittent screeching of the organ on the soundtrack.

  • Due Date

    Due Date 2010

    ½ Watched 16 Jul, 2012

    The sheer fucking unwarranted hubris of Todd Phillips that he thought he could better (let alone equal) PLANES, TRAINS & AUTOMOBILES. I laughed a total of two times - both times because Downey Jr. pulled a facial expression that managed to rise above the pitiful slop of the script.
