    They Shall Not Grow Old

    ★★★

    visually impressive but there is something about putting alien voices to dead men, and then having ghostly disconnected narration that makes me feel oily inside.

    i would question the authenticity of the video footage as in this was most likely staged propaganda of its time in the first place.

    does a good job showing the horrors of war but it’s a bit too “this was great fun” army chat and doesn’t focus on the absolute futility of ordinary men fighting…

  • Cam

    Cam

    ★★★★½

    i spend my whole life watching horror films about cam girls in the hope that one day a good one will come along and it FINALLY HAPPENED????

    this reminded me SO MUCH of +1 letterboxd.com/film/1-2013-1/ they would be the most perfect double bill.

    this is a super weird concept for a film

  • Vice Academy 5

    Vice Academy 5

    ★★½

    imagine my joy when i find out i can finally complete the vice academy series as they have turned up on prime, and imagine my elation that it involves SENTIENT VIRTUAL REALITY.

    unfortunately much like the gorgeous cyborg of vice academy 3( i think?), this idea was quickly forgotten and was the most promising but of the film. otherwise it's standard VA, but i don't really mind because no matter how stupid they get theye all sort of competently made and the two leads are really fun (i still miss linnea and ginger).

    this weird little film from the director of psychos in love and cemetery high is definitely his best. a banging soundtrack and artfully composed kill scenes. who tf changes the awesome purple poster for this on tmdb though >:(
