  • The Misfits

    The Misfits 1961

    ★★★★★ Watched 22 Jun, 2015

    A wonderful film, featuring three actors at their peak, two who would be dead within a year and the other loosing his sight. To be honest the performances must be as much down to John Huston as to the individuals for he seems to have every second of this film under his control and we spend the whole of the first half smiling and the second half wincing. Monroe is a joy throughout and the guys understandably in awe but…

    Entourage 2015

    ★★★½ Watched 20 Jun, 2015

    Strip Nude for Your Killer 1975

    ★★★★ Watched 27 Feb, 2013 1

    I didn’t think much of this when I first saw it and don’t think much of it now. It’s terrible really because the girls are great and it looks good most of the time with plenty of sexy kills. The title, salacious though it is, is pretty accurate, but the predictable tale plods along and in the end produces a killer we have not only not seen but did not know existed! Distortion on the soundtrack doesn’t help this one.…
