    The Lair of the White Worm


    Revisited this one for The Solute, and I think it was one of those "oh I have to write about it now?" rewatches where I saw the flaws a little more. Curse you, amateur journalism! Still an absolute blast though, and I think Amanda Donohoe's performance is one of the greatest things ever. Could do without the comedy policeman and the godawful "Derbyshire" accents though.

    Anyway, read more here!

    I wrote about my love for Aki Kaurismäki for the Solute. Is this his best film? I think it probably is? But now I need to rewatch all the others to check?

    Anyway, read it here!

    Can't really remember why this one ended up on my list, as it looked like - and was! - a bit of "want to feel old?" viewing experience. And I do enough feeling old without external assistance! Maybe just curious about a movie adapted from a Twitter thread?

    It was pretty engaging, aside from that. Strong performances and some really inspired sound editing, with some funny (and shocking) moments. Never quite won me all the way over and I kinda wish it had done more with the brief change in perspective late on, but a pretty interesting experience all the same.

    The last classic-era Buster that I'd been dragging my heels over (I haven't seen Spite Marriage but I don't think that counts). Turns out it's pretty delightful! A lot more plot-heavy than most of his films, which works surprisingly well - the plot might just be a classic example of "one small lie gets way out of control" but it's a GOOD version of that plot and allows Buster to try a slightly different variety of gags, most of which…

    Morticia: I'm just like any modern woman trying to have it all. Loving husband, a family. It's just... I wish I had more time to seek out the dark forces and join their hellish crusade.
