    ★★★

    Film8080 film no.3. Badly acted, plotless and kinda pretentious, but it’s still a great scummy ‘70s NYC movie, with some fantastic music from the Voidoids and Ed Lachman's striking urban photography.

    Three Wishes for Cinderella

    Film no.2 in the Film8080 challenge! Enchanting snowbound retelling of Cinderella with all-seeing owls and magical acorns.

    ★★

    Not awful, just ordinary... those in-jokes and meta-references that once seemed so clever and fresh now just feel tired, and it's way too drawn-out and repetitive. Still, Craven delivers a few suspenseful sequences and the 'teen' cast provide some youthful energy even if the old-timers (Campbell, Cox, Arquette) clearly just turned up for the pay cheque.

    One of my all-time favourite movies - cult movie perfection. The dialogue, the characters, the performances and the whacked-out mix of punk rock teen alienation and sci-fi conspiracy hijinks make for a brilliantly original one-off. And the new blu-ray looks GREAT!
