    Electric Boogaloo: The Wild, Untold Story of Cannon Films 2014

    ★★★★ Watched 01 Oct, 2014

    Really dug " Electric Boogaloo: The Wild, Untold Story of Cannon Films", Mark Hartley's feature doco-trilogy rounding-out offering.

    Like "Not Quite Hollywood", and "Machette Maidens" before it, "Boogaloo" delivers a deftly edited oral history of a niche, cult segement of film history, this time from a slew of people involved with Cannon Films during their rise, and ultimate fall.

    Well worth scoping out if you're a bit of a film buff, or fondly remember the flash of the Cannon logo…

    ★★★★½ Watched 17 Jun, 2014

    A more exciting, engaging, and emotional, ride in 100 minutes than four entire seasons of Game of Thrones.

    Such a beautiful looking film.

    You know...what I could see when I wasn't quietly weeping.

    "Review contains spoilers"...well, no it doesn't...but I don't want to detract from your enjoyment with my gripes.

    Short version:

    Good. Parts were great, the last 45 minutes especially, but the whole...good.

    More complete thoughts below the line!


    I went in with really high, hyped up expectations...and it didn't meet them. It's by no means a *bad* film.

    The word that constantly comes to mind is "messy". I think Nolan just tried to get too many plates to spin at…

    Still one of the best werewolf films from this side of the millennium, trumped only by "Dog Soldiers", really.
