  • Slow West

    Slow West 2015

    ★★½ Watched 17 May, 2015

    There's a lot to like (the cast mainly). But the colourist went way overboard on this one. The whole thing looks like Alice in Wonderland whereas I prefer my westerns to have a Deadwood-esque tangible taste of excrement. For me as a graphic designer, WANTED posters with identically damaged zeroes (a printed WildWest-font in stead of a properly typeset poster) are proof that the art department was just half-assing it.

    Ventoux 2015

    ★★ Watched 17 May, 2015

    When the director needs a Rubic's cube in the shot to show the scene is set in the eighties, you know you're gonna have a bad time...

    Extra points deducted for one of the worst filmposters ever.

    Sharknado 2: The Second One 2014

    ★★★★½ Watched 02 Aug, 2014

    The perfect so-bad-it's good Asylum movie (when most of their 2014 output has been very disappointing). It does everything right that the first Sharknado did wrong. C'mon Asylum, gimme that Sharktopusnado vs Piranhacondanado.
