    The Horror Show

    House is back! But it's not.

    Actually, this one isn't even about a house. What is the connective tissue between these movies again? Movies where people might live in a house?

    This time Bishop from Aliens is a cop finding himself in the movie Shocker.

    It is nowhere near as good as Shocker.

    Star Trek Deep Space 9's Nog is his kid who is into Megadeth but even that isn't fun enough to redeem this.

    My brain is trying very…

  • House II: The Second Story

    House II: The Second Story

    ★★½

    This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    House is back! But wait, it's a different house and the Greatest American Hero is nowhere to be seen.

    This house is a haunted house full of unexplained hieroglyphics and bumbling Jesse and his pal dig up the grave of his great great grandpa looking for lost treasure. Great great grandpa happens to be a zombie cowboy and and much like Bud the CHUD he wants to hang out and have 80s adventures with beer and dancing.

    Later Cliff from…

    House

    ★★★

    This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    For me this is one of the canonical list of films I remember loving the cover of at the video library when I was a kid but I was never able to rent or see it.

    Finally, I got to see it!

    Unexpectedly to me this wasn't so much a horror as a comedy/horror and it's great fun.

    The Greatest American Hero is a sad divorced father who is struggling to write his next horror novel and really just wants…

  • Nighthawks

    Nighthawks

    ★★★½

    Not a lot makes sense plot wise but everyone is extremely handsome. Very enjoyable watch.

  • Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness

    Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness

    This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    Ugh.

    I enjoyed the daftness and seeing the various surprises from the other dimensions.

    However, the story just wasn't for me. I felt it was weaker than all the things it was a follow-up to.

    I enjoyed WandaVision and this felt like it just tacked on a big CGI battle onto that and took away any of the character progression.

    The movie has plenty of fun in it but overall for me it was just 'fine'.

  • Train to Busan

    Train to Busan

    ★★★

    This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    Disappointing businessman/father becomes a hero in his daughters eyes by saving her and and a pregnant lady from a train full of zombies during the middle of a zombie apocalypse.

    Really good.

  • Sabata

    Sabata

    ★★★

    It's way too hot as I'm watching this and I'm not really sure why anything happened.

    There's loads of elaborate _Home Alone_ style traps set by our gunman Sabata and his little band of misfits.

    It's a lot of fun and most items seem to be a gun.

  • Spider-Man: No Way Home

    Spider-Man: No Way Home

    ★★★★½

    With all the stuff going into this movie I kinda expected a mess of fan-service but instead it's the best super hero movie I've watched for ages. 

    Fun, heartfelt and a joy to watch. Loved it.

  • Anvil! The Story of Anvil

    Anvil! The Story of Anvil

    ★★★

    This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    A documentary about two middle aged wannabe rock-legends who never got the fame or fortune they felt they deserved. 

    So Spinal Tap in style that I never quite believed it was true. A disaster of a European tour, a thirteenth album rejected by the labels and then finally a successful gig. 

    Peppered with commentary from actual rock-legends this is often hilarious but heartfelt. I spent the whole movie wanting them to grow-up and learn to accept their fate but their actual success means maybe they were right all along.

  • Ladyhawke

    Ladyhawke

    ★★★

    Fantasy love story of Rutger Hauer man-by-day/wolf-by-night and Michelle Pfeiffer lady-by-night/hawk-by-day. Mathew Broderick is 'Mouse' their lying romantic interlocutor friend who is sadly not a mouse.

    There's a curse to be solved and crazy music to be enjoyed.

    This film looks amazing.

    Maybe 30 minutes too long.

  • Time After Time

    Time After Time

    ★★★

    H.G Wells has a time machine. He always seems to have a time machine.

    This time he chases after David Warner who turns out to be Jack the Ripper having a great time in 1980s America.

    I've watched this loads and it's still fun.

  • Blind Fury

    Blind Fury

    ★★★

    Rutger Hauer loses his sight in Vietnam and is trained on a lark by villagers to be a Daredevil like slightness ninja swordsman.

    Years later he and the son of one of his dead friends go on an adventure in Reno.

    Great fun.
