    ★★★½

    Crazy tripy film starring the Monkees.
    Clearly a way for them to bite back at the critics who had dismissed them for being just manufactured all hype and no talent band.
    Apart from the experimental script, it is actual a well made showcase for the band, including some top tunes and concerts footage. Being from late 60's is it obviously going to be compared Yellow Submarine, but frankly it far more ambitious give it flaws.

    Long overdue watch of the Haneke 'classic'.
    Clearly, an early example of the way the director loves to challenge and fuck with his audience. It is brutal and silly all the same time, the script's tone pushes the audience to dismiss the film as nonsense and want to switch it off. The fourth wall breaking was obviously new element in this kind of film. I have to say it wasn't what I was expecting and I thought was an interesting and provoking experiment.

    A really fun throwback to the 'Jaws' monster era. The chemistry between the main characters works , one-liners are funny and the effects still look fine.

    ★★½

    This 'what is says the tin ' flick definitely benefits from been seen in full festival screening. So what get is babes , boobs, bikinis and undead beavers ; what is not to love here. As long as you don't think too much about the details a lot can be had from this silly comic horror film
