    How to Build a Girl


    How to Build a Girl (2019) d. Coky Giedroyc sp. Caitlin Morgan/John Niven based on CM's experiences as a teen music journalist. Beanie Feldstein a delight navigating the journey from swotty teen to naive (then evil*) music critic before realising where her talents truly lie., *spends a tad too long in this section. Loved her bedroom wall! 🎩❀️

  • Moana



    Moana (2016) d. Ron Clements/John Musker. Catchy songs, likeable characters & in Moana (AuliΚ»i Cravalho) a role model for our time, one that respects tradition but seeks adventure, challenge, is determined & can save the save the day. + The Rock rocks πŸ’ͺ +Jermaine Clements πŸ’™. 🌊

  • The Anniversary

    The Anniversary


    The Anniversary (1968) d. Roy Ward Baker
    The closest #Hammer ever got to doing a Pinter-play, in this adaptation of Bill MacIlwraith's play about a domineering matriarch (#BetteDavis) whose annual anniversary is trial for her three sons. This year is a real show-stopper! β€οΈπŸ‘οΈ

  • Frankenstein Must Be Destroyed

    Frankenstein Must Be Destroyed


    Frankenstein Must Be Destroyed (1969) d. Terence Fisher
    The 5th of 7 #Hammer #Frankenstein movies. Here F (#PeterCushing) needs to get knowledge from a colleague who's now in an asylum & dying of heart failure. Surely with his skills of extreme body surgery it'll all end OK. πŸ‘

  • The Other Guys

    The Other Guys


    The Other Guys (2010) d. Adam McKay. Mark Wahlberg & Will Ferrell star as 2 mismatched cops investigating a shady businessman (Steve Coogan). Overall good fun, with plenty of pops at preposterous cop action flicks. But too many irrelevant scenes/running gags make this a tad long.

  • Contagion



    Contagion (2011) d. Steven Soderbergh. Finally caught up with this! Very educational.... And prescient. Would I have watched it if there hadn't been a global pandemic? Probably not.

  • Frankenstein Created Woman

    Frankenstein Created Woman


    Frankenstein Created Woman (1967) d. #TerenceFisher. F (#PeterCushing) has moved on from creating beings out of body parts. He's now interested in the soul & manages to transfer one from a recently executed man, to a woman (Susan Denberg) he revived/made-over. Goofy. Gory. Good!

  • X: The Man with the X-Ray Eyes

    X: The Man with the X-Ray Eyes


    X: The Man with the X-Ray Eyes (1963) w/d. #RogerCorman. Dr Xavier (#RayMilland) is convinced that there is a better way for doctors to diagnose their patients. Obviously, it's to have x-ray vision. His eye drops work a treat but come with side effects. Milland brings gravity.

  • The Testament of Dr. Cordelier

    The Testament of Dr. Cordelier


    Le Testament du docteur Cordelier (1959) d. #JeanRenoir. The casting of a great physical/mime artiste (Jean-Paul Barrault) in this updated to '50s Paris #JekyllandHyde was a great investment. Some subtle/interesting changes re: the kind of man Dr Jekyll was before the experiment.

  • The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Miss Osbourne

    The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Miss Osbourne


    The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Miss Osbourne (1981) d. Walerian Borowczyk. A party for Dr Jekyll (Udo Kier) & Miss Osbourne (Marina Pierro) takes an unpleasant turn of when J's alter-ego Hyde (GΓ©rard Zalcberg) is revealed. Atmospheric sexually violent take on #JekyllandHyde.

  • Coda



    Coda (2020) d. Claude Lalonde
    Following his wife's death world-renowned concert pianist (#PatrickStewart) has started getting stage fright. He finds some kind of comfort/security in a friendship with a journalist (#KatieHolmes). A thoughtful actor-led low-key drama. Enjoyed it.

  • #Alive



    #Alive (2020) Cho Il-hyung. South Korean zombie movie starring Yoo Ah-in and Park Shin-hye as pretty much the last two Survivors on their apartment block, albeit on opposite sides. Two charming leads ensure that their predicament has meaning. Excellent zombie acting/action.
