    The Final Girls 2015

    ★★½ Watched 06 Feb, 2016

    Like Scream, this has a bunch of reasonably slasher-aware teenagers having to live out being in a slasher movie - one of which is again such an expert that he obnoxiously has to let people know about it at all times. But in this case it's a specific movie, this movie's approximation of a Friday The 13th knockoff called "Camp Bloodbath". (doing this with, say, Friday The 13th Part 2 would be a legitimately interesting experiment. Would they stay where…

    Top Line 1988

    ★★ Watched 04 Feb, 2016

    Watched this under the title Top Line, which has a poster that suggests an Indiana Jones knockoff.

The response on this has been gobsmacking, though I was willing to chalk a fair bit of it up to Peak Gen-X Nostalgia, and it coming at a good time to be heralded as…

    The Human Centipede 3 (Final Sequence) 2015

    Watched 25 Jan, 2016

    Tom Six, like a lot of people whose art is childishly offensive and basically stupid, considers himself a warrior for free speech. (o, how hard he fights. On Twitter.) He dresses like the French guy in Raiders Of The Lost Ark and has so far shown the world exactly one idea, which he's flogged out for three movies now. I am caught between befuddlement and admiration.

    This third gulp at the can dispenses with the dropout-Cronenberg medical horror of the…
