    The Incredible Melting Man

    Its great to be reminded that bad movies like these do exist, and aren't just figments of my imagination and remembrances of student days

    I especially love this movie because of JOBS, that terrible Aston Kutcher-as-Steve Jobs-movie where a reference joke was made out of the name Steve. They must have said the word Steve 148 times in that movie, typically for no good reason.

    Now into my life comes THE INCREDIBLE MELTING MAN, already gloriously terrible in its own…

I'd never dream of abandoning that grumpy thing on a spaceship ready to blow with a hostile alien being the only company.

    So now, in my eyes, ALIEN really is a 100% perfect film.

    Pan's Labyrinth

    ★★★

    After eight years, it's a bit of a letdown to find that PAN'S LABYRINTH really isn't a film about any labyrinth of Pan's but rather a film about a Spanish fascist general killing or torturing a bunch of people. In the confused moral landscape of the film, fascism seems to constitute "reality"; so I guess we're all fascists at heart, unless we live in fantasy worlds of course.

    The film is imaginative but I found it to be a bit…
