    The Keep 1983

    ★★★ Watched 24 Feb, 2015

    One of the more interesting additions to netflix uk is the widescreen presentation with tangerine dream score of Michael mann's bizarre 1983 nazi horror oddity...
    I can't quite decide if I've enjoyed what I've just watched, but it's definitely not the work of a hack, more the hack job product of studio interference.
    Looks amazing, great score, awesome demon design. Shame it's utterly incomprehensible... And answers on a postcard if anyone can tell me what accent Ian mckellan was going for!

  • Insidious

    Insidious 2010

    ★★★★ Watched 21 May, 2013

    Some first rate spooky imagery and unnerving first half somewhat undone by a fairly uninteresting final act, it's never the less an enjoyable, often jumpy little horror flick. Probably the best of its kind in recent years.

    The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey 2012

    ★★ Watched 08 Apr, 2013

    Lazy, poorly edited, dull, overlong, uninteresting. Poor show, Peter. How he plans on milking this wafer thin plot out to 9 hours is beyond me.

    Scream for Help 1984

    Watched 23 Feb, 2013

    Absolute trash epic from Michael Winner, it's hard to decide whether its a one star or a five star film... Technically it's abysmal and appears to be directed by a child, but taken as a hilarious piece of trash it's an amazing watch.
