  • The Burning

    The Burning 1981

    ★★★½ Added

    Better than average summer camp slasher. Plot is minimal at best but a couple of the victims are surprisingly likeable.

  • The Undertaker

    The Undertaker 1988

    ★★ Added

    Directionless stalk & slash enlivened by one awesome gore effect (along with a bunch of bad ones) and a pretty good performance from Joe Spinell.

  • Interstellar

    Interstellar 2014

    ★★★½ Added

    Visually spectacular, but oddly unengaging. At times brilliant, at times painfully hamfisted, with a dying Earth premise that never quite rings true. The cast are great and the concepts weighty and fascinating, but too often it feels like parts were rushed to get to the bits Nolan was interested in (a bit bizarre in a 3-hour film). The 2001 references are likewise rather too on the nose. Admirable for it's scope and ambition, but lacking Nolan's normal skill in execution.
