  • The Hunger

    The Hunger 1983

    ★★½ Watched 05 Apr, 2015

    Emphasis on style gives this movie a very dated feel, but there's some effective scenes.

  • The Lone Ranger

    The Lone Ranger 2013

    ★★ Watched 05 Apr, 2015

    I like Hammer as John Reid and Depp ends up being surprisingly tolerable as Tonto, but the movie feels like a bloated mess, a combination of current blockbusters and 'homages' to other movies. But hey, it's better than Legend of the Lone Ranger.

  • Gimme Shelter

    Gimme Shelter 1970

    ★★★★½ Watched 24 Mar, 2015

    I'm not sure I've ever been anxious while watching a concert film, but I was waiting for the events I knew where coming here.

    That aside, GIMME SHELTER does an impressive job of presenting the Stones' live performance (and a brief glimpse of Tina Turner as well - oh my). It was also fascinating to see parts of the negotiations for the San Francisco concert site and the slow build towards the violence that made Altamont infamous.

  • The Town That Dreaded Sundown

    The Town That Dreaded Sundown 1976

    ★½ Watched 19 Mar, 2015

    It may be a drive-in classic but it's wildly inconsistent. Pointless (and redundant) narration and bad comic relief overshadow the few effective scenes.
