  • Mad Max Beyond Thunderdome

    Mad Max Beyond Thunderdome 1985

    ★★★ Watched 12 May, 2015

    Wonderfully insane for the first forty minutes or so then falls off a cliff. The final action sequence has some great moments but by then I was past caring. I like that the kids had the good sense to trim Mel's mullet though.

  • Mad Max 2: The Road Warrior

    Mad Max 2: The Road Warrior 1981

    ★★★★ Rewatched 12 May, 2015

    A huge leap from the first film in budget, ambition and ferocity. What it lacks in narrative depth it compensates for in spectacular practical stunt work. An essential genre film.

    Popeye 1980

    ★★★★ Rewatched 19 Aug, 2014

    A more profoundly, confoundingly, relentlessly odd film you're unlikely to encounter. Too creepy for kids, too baffling for adults. I've got no idea what Altman was trying to achieve but it's fascinating. I'm a couple of rewatches away from declaring it a work of crazed genius.

    Yes, it's as bad as you think it's going to be. If this film doesn't offend you, make you physically sick or have you running to therapy I don't want to know you.
