  • 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.

  • Hercules 2014

    ★★★ Watched 14 Aug, 2014

    Not the catastrophe it might have been, this is no Clash of the Titans to be sure. The cast are game and the script toys with some interesting ideas. It's disappointing then to see the sparks smothered by conservative direction and an overriding (financially mandated) blockbuster blandness. That said, John Hurt nearly bursting a blood vessel yelling "Kill the filthy bastard" is quite something.

  • Keith Lemon: The Film 2012

    ½ Watched 30 Sep, 2013

    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.

  • Keyhole 2011

    ★★★★ Watched 15 Sep, 2013

    "That penis is getting dusty."

    One thing you can rely on about Guy Maddin films, you're never in doubt whether you're watching one or not. That may be the only thing.
