This is great fun! It got panned by critics, but fuck 'em. This was lots of fun, and a situation lots of us can relate to when you can't find the current incarnation of Turbo Man.

I was obsessed with this movie as a kid. I'd watch it year round. My parents could also relate to it, given how hard it was to get certain toys at Christmas time in the 1990s. Mainly Power Rangers and Buzz Lightyear.

Excellent silent. The inspiration for DC's Joker. And also worthy of an RYM Satire:

The third Sartana film. The lead actor was replaced in this one for reasons I don't know yet and the change works well enough but feels a bit weird especially when the original actor would be back for the next two films, both released later the same year as this one.

Fuck the critics once again. Loved this! Kathy Bates is great as Willie's foul mouthed mother. Actually, everyone is quite filthy except for Thurman Merman, reprised by Brett Kelly from the first movie.

Love this story. The Vadim Jean adaptations of Discworld stories are the best there are, keeping the tone and the look. This one features a pre-Downton Abbey Michele Dockery, David Jason as Albert, and Ian Richardson as Death. Sir Terry Pratchett himself even has a small cameo in this.

Weirder than expected.



I might be tempted to say this was Lumet's best movie, but 12 Angry Men exists.

If you're into motor racing, well worth a look. If you're not, there's probably not much in it for you.

Clip movies can be a bit hit-and-miss. This is no Monty Python's Meaning of Life, but it's better than other clip movies, like Kentucky Fried Movie and The Onion Movie. This also has an absolutely stellar cast. Some highlights: Hugh Jackman with balls hanging off his neck, Gerard Butler as a vicious leprechaun fighting Johnny Knoxville and Seann William Scott, and Elizabeth Banks being terrorized by a masturbating cartoon cat.

More zombies but less fun. Not as good as the first movie, but it still has it's moments. Unfortunately the re-release doesn't have Anthrax and Zodiac Mindwarp included in the soundtrack any more due to licensing issues.

Not as good as Your Name, with which this shares a universe (or possibly multiverse), but a very solid anime film.

Some amazing dogfight and air combat sequences make up for the jingoistic tone of the whole thing. I was a bit lost without subtitles for the German language sections, which I suppose I can sum up as "bugger, we lost".

And there goes another movie mentioned in Science Fiction Double Feature from the Rocky Horror Show! Love Lee Tracy as the comedic newspaper man Lee Taylor, making this a horror/comedy. Fay Wray is also very good. And the synthetic flesh scene is a great example of 1930s special effects at their best.

What an absolutely brilliant movie! Finally found a copy with subtitles. Fun and uplifting, and a big twist mid-movie which really sets it all up. One of the best things I have seen in a while.

B tier Brian de Palma, so still pretty good. Really heavily channelling the Hitchcock here though, most of all Vertigo. 



This is supposed to be a comedy, but even for a black comedy I don't really see it most of the time. I enjoyed the movie, though with some mixed feelings on the ending, I just didn't find it funny. It's some real dark and serious shit. And as a straight male (one who has never done anything remotely like the shit the men in this film get up to), I can't help put feel a bit attacked by this. There's not one man in this film, except perhaps her father who only appears in a few scenes and we don't really ever get to know too much about, that's portrayed completely positively. Spoiler alert; Even the 'nice guy' boyfriend turns out to not be all he appears. Don't get me wrong I was rooting for Cassie the entire time but this movie takes a very narrow view of men. I get its point, agree that it needed to be made even, but it also wouldn't have killed them for just one the men in the film Cassie does her 'not really drunk' act on to actually act like a decent human being. And let's be honest, there's also at least two female characters as well whose behaviour in the movie is also problematic.

Yeah, there's nothing funny in that movie ^^ whatsoever. It's all pretty fucking grim.


More than decent monster movie! Not quite up to the standard of Them!, but it's not far off. The same spider was later used in The Incredible Shrinking Man, and this film also has an uncredited Clint Eastwood in it.

Low budget but reasonably good attempt at bringing a D&D quest to life. It rings reasonably true to anyone who's played D&D (well, me anyway...), in that it has a fairly basic story, black and white goodies and baddies, and a bit of dungeon crawling and puzzle solving.
