  • Ghostwatch

    Ghostwatch 1992

    ★★★★ Added

    Seeing this live back in the day was probably one of the best bits of television I've ever seen in my life.

    Watching it again now, while cheesey as hell, it's still very cleverly made.

  • This Must Be the Place

    This Must Be the Place 2011

    ★★½ Watched 26 Feb, 2012

    Wonderfully shot and it certainly made my home town of Dublin look good. But the first third of the film set in Dublin is mostly irrelevant to the plot.

    While it was interesting to watch a film that certainly wasn't very predictable, I found Penn's quirky performance overly forced. It didn't bother me too much, but if it grates with you then you will hate this film.

    I liked the look of this film, and I liked the performances.

    It just falls down completely on the plot. I don't know how you make a film about a super hero punching nazis utterly boring, but they succeeded here.

    I like Whedon's stuff for the most part. But this was just awful.

    Making a horror movie that deconstructs horror movies is no excuse for making a terrible horror movie.

    It fails miserably where films like Scream and The Cottage succeeded so well.
