    HORRORWEEN 2020
    You Picked, I Watched.
    Hooptober H2O: 7 Years Later

    67/100

    This reminded me of the time we did a drunken seance in the early 00's and the spirit of Fred West set the curtains on fire. I've not done one since.

    The first 45 minutes were very well crafted and really used the online space to full effect, just a shame that all the rules changed for the last 15 minutes. It's not quite as silly as the ending of 'Open Windows' but it's not far off. I think sticking to a shorter run time definitely helped!

    NON FILMS SEEN IN 2021

    Enjoyed this a lot but made sure not to take this at face value, sure it may feel unscripted but much like reality TV and Pro Wrestling it also feels overly staged.

    This works well as a companion piece to the Vampiro doc, both guys pretty much having to rebuild their lives and reputations after being in WCW during 2000.

    I've never hated David for being world champ, I actually quite liked his run but…

    990’s – Watchlist

    62/100

    Ben Kingsley makes a rather weak villain in this tame thriller. It's a great squad that Redford assembles against him though.
    Thankfully it's not about trainers.

    FILMS I OWN THAT I’VE NEVER SEEN

    64/100

    This was much better than the second film but still far too much of the shaky cam that actually hides the action instead of highlighting it.
    That opening with Paddy Considine is the best bit of the franchise so far!

    🎃HORRORWEEN🎃 2017

    67/100

    This was a pleasant, fun surprise. I had low expectations with it being a McG film but I really enjoyed it.
    It reminded me a lot of the movies I grew up on, like 'The Gate' & 'Fright Night'.

    Films Seen At The Cinema.

    Sat in the cinema with my Force Awakens t-shirt, I was waiting for the rush of nostalgia to hit me (member, member chewbacca?).

    It didn't come. I didn't feel the way I did when I saw Force Awakens.

    It was still awesome to see Darth Vader, the Death Star, *insert spoiler here*, but I never really cared for these other characters, apart from the droid and Donnie Yen, because he's a legit bad ass.

    Maybe…
