  • The Witch

    The Witch 2015

    ★★★½ Watched 16 May, 2016

    When I saw the trailer for this, I was very excited. It looked very creepy and well made, and it is, but its not a "horror" film.
    It looks incredible, very bleak and exactly what I imagine that time period would be like.
    The acting is perfect and the use of period dialect works to create the perfect feel to the characters.
    Again, the film works right up until the end, which feels tacked on by the studio to fit in with the modern horror model.

    So, overall, a really good period piece that is creepy and dark and well worth a look.

  • Jodorowsky's Dune

    Jodorowsky's Dune 2013

    ★★★★ Watched 02 May, 2016

    I really enjoyed this documentary, it is well made and the interviews are great. But, I have to say, I am so glad the film never happened, I think I would have hated every second of it. David Lynch's film may be flawed, but I would still rather watch it than what was described here.
    So, great doc for a film that, thankfully, we will never be subjected to.

  • Transformers: Age of Extinction

    Transformers: Age of Extinction 2014


    Never really being a Transformers fan (I missed the toy craze by about 5 years), I enjoyed the 1st film, big, dumb and loud, but fun. Then the last 2 came out and my interest wained, kinda crap. But next to this one, the other 3 are works of art.
    This is is the biggest piece of crap I think I have ever sat through. Michael Bay needs to be stopped, he is spending so much money on these pointless…

  • Black Dynamite

    Black Dynamite 2009

    ★★★★ Watched 10 Dec, 2014

    This is probably the best parody film I've seen since the original "Hotshots!". It is the perfect parody of the Grindhouse Blackspotation films of the early 1970's, it looks and feels exactly like one of those films.
    This is a must see if you love comedy and grindhouse films, you will laugh out loud.
