    The inventive musical sequences only end up showing how ordinary and formulaic the rest of the film is.

    Three Colors: Red


    Final film in my January Three Colours first time watch! Didn’t like it quite as much as Blue, but still a bewitching, engrossing, and beautifully made film. The narrative is more elliptical and enigmatic than the previous film so I think it might need another watch. But I loved the performances and relationship between Trintignant and Jacob.

    Repo Man


    One of my all-time favourite movies - cult movie perfection. The dialogue, the characters, the performances and the whacked-out mix of punk rock teen alienation and sci-fi conspiracy hijinks make for a brilliantly original one-off. And the new blu-ray looks GREAT!

    Scream 4


    Not awful, just ordinary... those in-jokes and meta-references that once seemed so clever and fresh now just feel tired, and it's way too drawn-out and repetitive. Still, Craven delivers a few suspenseful sequences and the 'teen' cast provide some youthful energy even if the old-timers (Campbell, Cox, Arquette) clearly just turned up for the pay cheque.
