  • Prince of Darkness

    Prince of Darkness

    ★★★★★

    You know when people act all precious over 1979's Halloween.. This film.

    Peter Jason - mouth trumpet. If I could make that noise. Id be that fucker all day. It's all in Dennis Dun's face.

  • Rogue One: A Star Wars Story

    Rogue One: A Star Wars Story

    ★★★

    What if Alistair Maclean had written a Star Wars novel?

  • Blue Velvet

    Blue Velvet

    ★★★★½

    Still beautiful fetishistic imagery. Viewed in a crimson red decor of a 1900 cinema. Like the whole audience was in Dorothy's apartment and we were all in Frank Booth's grip. Looked on in quiet horror and sometimes nervous laughter.

    Still loose my shit at the Pabst Blue Ribbon scene.

  • Innerspace

    Innerspace

    ★★★★½

    King of the front display of every video store in 1988. It's still that good, and it's better than your favourite 80s nostalgia T-Shirt movie.

  • Robocop: Prime Directives

    Robocop: Prime Directives

    ★★

    Dark Justice ★ - youtu.be/Imr9IhPneN0?t=6m36s ...he gets a star.

    Meltdown ★ - Da Bombz ain't in this enough.

    Resurrection ★★  - The Legitimate Robocop TV Movie.

    Crash & Burn ★½  - The Legitimate non-Robocop TV Movie. Crime Prevention units get rubbered and smash a load of screen doors. Cat 5 navel kid. *pause*. Really good derezzed effects.

  • How to Get Ahead in Advertising

    How to Get Ahead in Advertising

    ★★★

    Probably more urgent in theme now than it ever was in its time. Serving as an observation on how horrific a decade was; a companion piece to They Live. It's final is a Tory fever dream. True horror.

  • Withnail & I

    Withnail & I

    ★★★★

    That dialogue...

  • Christine

    Christine

    ★★★★

    Beautifully shot, fetishism... a film about first love.

  • Appleseed

    Appleseed

    ★★½

    Another Shirow adaptation that doesn't quite get the geo-political feel, and what's new they do bring table doesn't quite work. But it certainly looks the part. Some of the animation lacks a kinetic energy displayed in 1989 OVP or the Manga.

  • Days of Thunder

    Days of Thunder

    ★★★

    It's stupid. You can clearly distinguish the iconic dialogue written by Towne and the shite Cruise put in. But the vibrating race energy is hard to over look... stock cars inches from crushing the camera.
    Technically the first Sergio Leone movie I ever watched at age 13.

  • The Nice Guys

    The Nice Guys

    ★★★★

    Make more... Fucking funny, smart movie.
