The Bad Batch (2016) Dir: Ana Lily Amirpour Let's start with the positives. I'm feeling lots of love and harmony lately, and I've decided that I'm gonna try REALLY REALLY hard to see the good in things. Ironically I had this epiphany just before i watched this film so......sucks for me. So pros.... This film … Continue reading Cannibals and Keanu Reeves
CAMPING; part two
The Ritual 2017 Dir: David Bruckner Perhaps i'm a little biased, but Brits are definitely making the best horror movies at the minute. Maybe not the best ever, (after extensive scientific research I've concluded that Koreans make the best ever), but we are getting considerably better. More importantly directors have stopped using stupid british stereotypes and taking the … Continue reading CAMPING; part two
The idea of a sequel pains me. With the exception of The Godfather and Home Alone 2: Lost in New York, I really don't have an overwhelming desire to watch a sequel. Ever. Look at what happened to Paranormal Activities. What started as an incredible film (a film, 1 film, singular), turned into a barrage of annoying … Continue reading Camping
The darkest shade of neon
The Neon Demon (2016) Dir: Nicholas Refn If you were to see this on Netflix, without knowing anything about it, and toyed with the idea of watching it because the visual was cool, and the bloke who did Drive directed it, then don't watch it. Really, don't. I'm not even really sure if Netflix is the … Continue reading The darkest shade of neon
The Lobster (2015) Dir: Yorgos Lanthimos I've been banging on about this film for weeks because it's very rare I get REALLY excited about something, and basically force everyone around me to watch it like a woman possessed. "Have you seen it yet?" I hissed at my colleagues this morning. I could actually SEE their … Continue reading Lobster Claw
You will catch Chlamydia and you will die….
dir: David Robert Mitchell (2015) *MAJOR SPOILERS AHEAD* I wanna start by stating that this is a proper film, and I mean a PROPER film. It's an art house, wide angles, beautiful cinematography, amazing acting, 'nod to David Cronenberg' kinda film. Def not one for the Netflix and chill. Had to get that out of … Continue reading You will catch Chlamydia and you will die….
Every now and again comes a director so mind-blowingly overrated you almost feel compelled to hate them just to level out the playing field a bit. Even though not all of them are as evil and self obsessed as say, Christopher Nolan (just picking names out a hat here guys), you've decided by default that … Continue reading The Visit….sure
Deliver us from tired scripts
Sometimes I go and watch horror movies and I'm all like "meh". The usual haunted house/scary Japanese chick with long hair/young possessed catholic girl/ hillbillies who eat people situation. As a horror fan you get so used to these formulas then eventually you're just like immune...and often jaded...and that's fine I guess, just a bit … Continue reading Deliver us from tired scripts
Even though it wasn't actually out that long ago, (fine...its only recently become available on Netflix). I feel that this month's revisited should go to Elijah Wood for acting like a crazy fool. Or Frodo goes Loco as Total film put it. He's actually so mind-blowing crazy in this film its beyond words.The worst part … Continue reading Maniac: Revisted
Jagged little Beth- episode recap
Poor Beth, all she ever wanted from Daryl was a shoulder to cry on, in fact all she wants to do is cry, and talk about her feelings and then maybe cry some more, but as was made mind-blowingly obvious from the last episode, Daryl is a redneck, and rednecks aren't really into tears, or … Continue reading Jagged little Beth- episode recap
