  • The House Where Evil Dwells

    The House Where Evil Dwells 1982

    ★★ Watched 21 May, 2015

    Dull slog of a haunted house film that's hurt by being made for two markets at once and really has only a few redeeming "what the hell" moments that bring it out of being a one star write off. Though at one time I'm sure the Skinmax sex scenes were a bonus.

    The Getaway 1972

    ★★★★ Rewatched 12 Aug, 2012 8

    Just my second time watching this, this time on the big screen (though it was "digital" not a print, so not as good as it should have been).

    Snowpiercer 2013

    ★★★★ Watched 26 Nov, 2014

    Very well made, fun piece of sci-fi with just enough of a message about class to make it qualify as actual sci-fi rather than just an action movie set in the future. The eclectic cast (all on the money) ads to the charm and helps smooth over some occasionally dodgy effects. Wish more "blockbuster spectaculars" had this much personality and effort behind them. Chris Evans continues to show that he really needs to be in more good roles than just playing Captain America.
