  • The Sacrament 2013

    ★½ Watched 22 Jul, 2014

    Boring re-telling of the Jonestown Massacre. Fairly pointless- a straight doc where you learned something or an exciting piece of fiction would make more sense- this is just a waste of time, really.

  • The Borderlands 2013

    ★★★½ Watched 18 Jul, 2014

    Whilst I found the last few minutes a bit silly, overall this is a solid, creepy story that holds your interest. Even though it's fairly obvious from early on what's going on, it's all done well enough to see past that and keep you entertained. A special mention for Gordon Kennedy-who I have never seen in a straight role- who handles the drama very well.

    I am astonished that someone with such an eye for a beautiful shot can now turn out something that looks so made for TV. Bad made for TV. Stupid, stupid casting, bad writing, awful acting... This would never be a good film, but when compared to Deep Red or Bird With The Crystal Plumage it's an embarrassment.

  • The Warriors 1979

    ★★★★½ Rewatched 10 Nov, 2012 2

    Fantastic movie, I love it more every time I watch it. It looks beautiful (even if most of the gang costumes are mental), moves at a fair clip and the editing of the fight scenes elevate them from the usual tough guy 70s punch ups to something snappier and more fluid. Despite the knives and baseball bats brandished, this is not your usual action film, but a gorgeous, light slicked dance by desperate people, wronged and wanting home.
