  • My Bloody Valentine 2009

    ★★★ Watched 04 Nov, 2014 4

    This doesn't deserve to be good as it is.

    It's virtually fright-free, it fails to conjure any of the dread the 1981 original was so successfully built on and at 101 minutes long - it's too fucking long. Nevertheless, Patrick Lussier's remake is a total blast due it's lashings of gore, gratuitous nudity, cheap but cheerful production values and it's hilariously awful acting - watch as the cast of late thirty-something-year-olds struggle to pretend to be high school teenagers during…

  • Paranormal Activity 4 2012

    Watched 29 Oct, 2014

    Added note: supposedly, there's a film to be found somewhere here.

    2. Uma Thurman is about as sexy as Jimmy Saville in a children's hospital ward.
    3. Chris O'Donnell has the charisma of a toilet seat.
    4. George Clooney's leather nipples.
    5. Bat bombs. Bat…

    "You're just a little boy, aren't you?"

    Birth is an elegant piece of filmmaking, delicately directed by Jonathan Glazer (Sexy Beast). It touches upon a plethora of themes that include love, loyalty, death, family, and grief but saturated in an atmosphere of supernatural oddness, yet, it's hard to place this under a certain genre. It's a stark piece of individual filmmaking that rarely comes around these days even though it echoes the likes of Kubrick.

    Still, this will split an…
