  • Fish Tank 2009

    ★★★★ Watched 22 Nov, 2014 10

    Micky Fishbasher and Moody McTeenager star as "Fritz" and "Twilight" in this grimy London fable about a dirty fish tank or some shit like that. It was probably good, I dunno, I drifted away halfway through and started drawing pictures of fish driving tanks. Then I thought, "Oh, a fish tank!" and I started designing a tank made of fish but I thought that was pretty stupid, the army could just train seagulls to eat the enemy tanks. Or cats. No wonder Hitler lost the war.

  • 2001: A Space Odyssey 1968

    Rewatched 12 Jan, 2014 91

    8 A.M. Sunday, 12th of January, 2014. HAL'S birthday. I'm tired as fuck.

    HAL.

    IBM.

    HAL/IBM. HAL=IBM. IBM=HAL.

    H+1 = I
    A+1 = B
    L+1 = M

    So HAL is indisputably IBM. Just go one letter on in the alphabet from H, A and L and you get I, B and M. 

    But what is IBM? A computer company Kubrick had a grudge against? Or are we just missing a "T" in the greatest riddle known to mankind? Confused? Allow…

  • Only Lovers Left Alive 2013

    ★★★★ Watched 15 Feb, 2014 54

    To the posh lady I had the misfortune of sitting beside at the Tyneside Cinema tonight who ate her various snacks as loudly as humanly possible, who at one point turned to her partner and said, "A skunk!" as a skunk walked past on-screen, who then fell asleep and took up all of my fucking arm rest, I have six words of wisdom for you that I think you should take on board:

    Fuck you, you stupid ignorant cunt.
