    Completely brilliant even after almost 40 years. Bonkers and hilarious in equal measure. Brian Blessed is so completely over the top it's amazing.

    Actually not as terrible as I thought it was going to be. Bit of a slow start and completely nonsensical in places but enjoyable enough.

    Hard to review. It's a good film, a very good film but I don't think it's an all-time classic.

    A lot shorter than I remember and for some reason the story felt less involved, especially the whole Natalie sub-plot. I remembered a lot from previous viewings, not sure if that helped. I've also seen the forward version before.

    If you've never seen it before make sure you keep your eyes open throughout as there are several subtle clues. The story runs backwards and it will keep you thinking long after viewing as you piece it all together.

    Quite possibly the worst film I have ever watched. Utterly reprehensible drivel that wasted two and a half hours of my life.
