    Withnail & I


    Off to the Lake District with my friends tomorrow. Looking to this for some guidance.

  • Suspiria



    A neon Gothic fever dream, Argento going full horror and firing on all cyclinders. I was delighted by how messed up 'Suspiria' was and how it wasted no time in becoming so, weird shit starts happening as soon as Suzy shows up to the Academy. The maggots, the guide dog, the barbed wire, the living dead! The mounting insanity of the supernatural murders and frightening setpieces is made all the more intense by Goblin's pulsating, nightmarish prog-rock score. It all…

  • Superintelligence


    Are you fucking serious!? The same film on the journey back! I fully hate this movie at this point, but at least I don’t have to hear James Corden’s voice.

  • Superintelligence


    Watched on the coach from Boston to Portland’s small tv without audio. I didn’t need the dialogue to tell this film was absolutely terrible, a weird rom com that’s simultaneously very unsubtle corporate propaganda, flogging AI by way of James Corden. But… I had More Songs About Buildings and Food on repeat in my headphones, so the Talking Heads’ masterpiece and the beautiful scenery on the road definitely enhanced this experience.

  • Confess, Fletch

    Confess, Fletch


    This and Tag were such a shit double bill for my flight the other day. Talk about Hammfisted! I really thought I was going to like this, there’s so much potential to the Fletch character. I like the Chevy Chase film a lot but I had figured a modern update of it could smooth over some of its more dated elements. How wrong I was! The most first draft, smug jokes, accompany a mystery lacking in any real thrills or…

  • Twin Peaks: Fire Walk with Me

    Twin Peaks: Fire Walk with Me

    With Fire Walk With Me Lynch effectively pulls back the curtain of the Laura Palmer mystery Dale Cooper and co spent two seasons trying to decipher. It also sets up Cooper’s psychic connection to Peaks and the Lodge - by way of a fantastic David Bowie appearance (so great that he’s part of this universe, I just wish David Byrne was as well) - that offers more of an explanation to his and Laura’s association. And yet brilliantly this is not…

  • Serpico



    “Love my garden”

    The troubled production behind Serpico is certainly perceptible, as the script many of the crew had problems with is rather meandering and messy. This easily could have been a stinker if not for Dino De Laurentiis’s last minute replacement hiring of the one and only Sidney Lumet. More than just a safe pair of hands Lumet directs the fuck out of this, really allowing you to soak up this world of seedy backstreets, rugged police stations and hippie…

  • The Hills Have Eyes

    The Hills Have Eyes

    That's just your average good ol American Trump voting family isn't it?

    Shoutout to my local cinema for screening this and Texas Chainsaw Massacre this past week. Sadly I missed the chance to see Tobe Hooper's film, but seeing The Hills Have Eyes in a packed out screening was a dream come true. Probably one of the funnest times I've had at the pictures, it's a perfect film to be seen with a crowd. It's absolute exploitation trash and utterly…

  • Venom: Let There Be Carnage

    Venom: Let There Be Carnage


    These movies are proper rubbish. Topher Grace stays winning.

  • Barbie



    This Ken wishes he was Stephen Malkmus.

  • Evil Dead II

    Evil Dead II


    Raimi gets back to doing what he does best, only this time he pushes the boat out in every way possible. Fast tracking the original Evil Dead in the first five minutes, he takes his freaky batshit creation to the next level, with buckets and buckets of blood, guts, gore and hilarity. Evil Dead 2 makes the most of the fact that the line between horror and farce is a thin one to tread and proudly does somersaults across that…

  • The Evil Dead

    The Evil Dead


    This is exactly the kind of film I aspire to make myself.
