    Captain America: Civil War 2016

    ★★★ Watched 03 May, 2016

    It's very good in the last hour - including a load of story and action that are essential and fun... it's such a shame that Civil War stretches a thin plot for most of the movie and skims on the laughs & action to cram in new characters for future movies instead. When the film moves away from being The Manchurian Candidate with supporting work from the guys we really paid to see (including a thousand frenetic handheld filmed hand-to-hand combat…

    Murder Party 2007

    ★★★ Watched 27 Feb, 2016

    Another low budget horror, just hunted it down because it's directed by the same guy who did Blue Ruin/Green Room. For a first effort it's really pretty good, it basically is a pisstake of the arty farty culture. A collective of young artists tempt one random guy into a building with a fancy invitation, their aim is to propose the most artfully valid murder method in order to be awarded $100,000 in funding for their project - murder, death, drugs, comedy, mayhem ensues. Reminded me of Sam Raimi's early films and an easy recommendation to horror fans looking for something different.

    It's practically a historical document about gigantic idiots. These people have a stupid, paper-thin plot for a film & decide to put $17 million, their gone-askew hippy minds & utterly stoned bodies on the line to prove that man & beasts with giant fucking teeth can co-exist. Which they can't. As this film proves.

    Reading the trivia on IMDb is like visiting Ogrish.com, the amount of people mauled & bitten on this film is frightening. The fact that the driving force behind it was…

    Jaws 1975

    ★★★★★ Rewatched 21 Feb, 2013

    I watched this ON A BOAT! The Tall Ship in Glasgow, to be precise. In the hull, where it was cold and damp & we had uncomfortable chairs, I was sat right at the front with a crick in my neck & the film jammed at "we're gonna need a bigger boat" - but I didn't care! Jaws is my favourite movie of all time, this was my favourite experience on a boat ever.
