  • Dear God No!

    Dear God No! 2011

    ★½ Watched 25 Sep, 2015

    While Dear God No! may recreate the grindhouse aesthetic more faithfully than some other recent attempts (Hobo with a Shotgun I'm looking at you), the budget is so low, the acting is so bad, the sound is so poorly recorded and the script is so nonsensical that ultimately there's not much to enjoy.

  • The Darjeeling Limited

    The Darjeeling Limited 2007

    ★★★ Watched 11 Sep, 2015

    I enjoyed watching Owen Wilson doing something that wasn't broad comedy and the scenery was lovely. the Darjeeling Limited was a enjoyable 90 minute ride but I found it lost steam towards the end.

  • Bloodsport

    Bloodsport 1988

    ★★★★ Rewatched 27 Jan, 2012 4

    Depending on which of the two types of martial arts movie plot you prefer (fighting your way through a tournament to avenge the death/injury of your friend/relative or learning a new martial arts technique from an old master to avenge the death/injury of your friend/relative) then either this or Kickboxer is Van Damme's best film. Although he should have won two best actor Oscars for Double Impact, obviously.

  • Dawn of the Dead

    Dawn of the Dead 2004

    ★★★½ Watched 13 Apr, 2012

    I have a dog. He loves going for walks - it's his favourite thing to do. So if I ever find myself on a lovely country stroll without the dog, I feel guilt and shame. That guilt and shame is the same as I felt when I enjoyed the Dawn of the Dead remake. OH GOD I'M SORRY GEORGE.
