    Darkest Hour


    A fairly boring but well made film about politics

  • Dressed to Kill

    Dressed to Kill


    For De Palma the director, this is probably a 4 or 5 star film. The visuals are superb and the performances are spot on. Very New York, too.

    For De Palma the writer, this is some sleazy, voyeuristic, exploitation shit, that I find very weird.

  • Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2

    Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2


    Apart from the toe-curlingly twee finale, this is, appropriately, relentlessly bleak and brutal.

    Watching the latter films has been tough on my 8-y/o, she's still firmly in the "chocolate frogs" demographic.

    Still, for an 8 film series, it finishes pretty strongly.

  • Freaky



    Based strictly on how much I went “ewww” and laughed out loud, this must be one of the best horror comedies I have seen.

  • Interceptor



    A three star film with a two star budget; everything wrong with this, from the skeleton rig crew to the supporting cast, could be fixed with more money.

    Elsa is ace. I wish I had guns like that 💪

  • The Dam Busters

    The Dam Busters


    Inspirational story, very average film

  • Touching the Void

    I’m also not a fan of Boney M

  • Species



    I feel like this belongs in the 90s movie time capsule.

    Could have been better. The end is pretty poor and just evokes Aliens on a much smaller budget. I like the central idea, though.

  • Maniac



    Well, that was deeply unsettling. Who sits down and decides to make a film like that?

  • Buffy the Vampire Slayer

    Buffy the Vampire Slayer


    People are pretty down on this and I’m not sure why. I think Kristy is a much better Buffy. And she did a lot of her own stunts.

  • X-Men



    Watched it with the kids (8/11). They’re verdict? “Was good but I wouldn’t watch it again.”

  • The Cat and the Canary

    The Cat and the Canary


    Not sure I ever saw Bob Hope in anything before. I can see why he was popular.
