Film 6 of the Indicator Samuel Fuller series. Not as good as Scandal Sheet, but solid. The film was considered to be before its time due to its depiction of an interracial relationship between an American woman and a Japanese man. 



Seventh and final film of the Indicator Samuel Fuller series. Also the best one. Great early neo-noir. 



Blind buy because it's by Dick Clement who was one of the people behind Auf Wiedersehen, Pet. It's got a great cast, but it didn't really click too well on the first watch. 



Excellent gothic horror from Hammer. Peter Cushing and Christopher Lee both in the cast. 



The long-winded title intrigued me. It was also directed by Paul Newman. Pretty solid drama about a mother and her daughters. 



Solid neo-noir about a father looking for his missing daughter, who has got involved in the sleazy world of the 1970s porn scene. It's quite dark but also humour as the very devoutly Christian father is clearly out of his depth. It was written and directed by Paul Schrader, who also wrote Scorsese's Taxi Driver.



Very dark Scottish comedy about four siblings who, upon the death of their mother (the father died many years earlier), try to cope with her death in different ways one dark knight in Glasgow. Absolutely brilliant this one. 



Another black comedy but this one throws an absurdist style on it. A very weird film. 



Stephen King adaptation. It's okay, but I feel like the movie might have been better if they'd managed to get it to 90 minutes or under. Some movies don't need to be too long. This was one of them. 



British New Wave psych drama. It didn't click too well on the first watch. Hopefully it opens up when I eventually give this one another go. I've only ever see one other Jack Clayton film and that got better with every viewing.

Post-apocalyptic New York in 2012... A pretty simple story of tribal survival with Yul Brynner as a stone cold killer with a softer side.

Bittersweet sometimes, but also with humour and overall really good.

This one was a pretty grim and dark western. I liked it although it was pretty unpleasant at times:

While I think there might be a fair argument for filing this in the so bad, it's good category, I found it hell of a lot of fun. A collaboration between Sam Raimi (who also directs) and the Coen Brothers.

Conspiracy thriller from the seventies about a nuclear plant. Condemned by the industry upon release as 'complete fiction' and a 'character assassination on the nuclear industry', but just twelve days later the Three Mile Island accident occurred, seemingly vindicating the film's message and making it eerily prophetic. 



Even Christopher Walken can't save this one. 



I don't normally go in for LGBT films as they're generally outside of my interest, but I kept hearing praise for this one so I checked it out. Turns out the hype is warranted. It's a simple plot, slow burning, but compelling. 



A mostly forgotten film, Black Joy was among the first British films to have an all black main cast. It's a comedy about an immigrant from Guyana and a fish out of water tale set in London's East End. QUite a lot of fun. 



Dated, but the vintage sci-fi imagery is a treat to watch.

Not quite the cutesy cuddly characters I remember from the 70s. The tone is slightly off. It really needed a bit more humour.

Probably as close as you'll ever get to a rom-com with Kevin Smith. Still has plenty of memorable idiocy though.

A feel good film that's also a bit mad in that way that only French cinema can do.

Well worth a look. Tom Morello is executive producer, wrote an original song, and put in a cameo with Scott Ian, Kirk Hammett, and Rob Halford. And it's got a proper fucking metal soundtrack too.

The way this has been talked about over the years I expected a B-movie slasher flick. It's not. Instead, it's a low budget psychological drama with an arty twist, and an original punk soundtrack.

Robert Redford and Nick Nolte in a gentle but funny buddy movie, based on a Bill Bryson book.

A largely forgotten adaptation of a P. D. James novel. Supposed to not do the book justice, but having not read the book, I rather enjoyed it. Great atmosphere. Something like a country noir. 



I've not been posting re-watches lately but I thought I'd include this one, since I liked it more this time. I didn't dislike it before, though it is a touch watch. A piece of must see British cinema though. 



A very quirky crime comedy, which the RYM genre police say isn't a comedy. 



Very obviously made to capitalise on Dirty Harry, but it's a fun action crime thriller, with Charles Bronson taking on the cop who plays by his own rules.

Nice close-up photography of ants, but otherwise a fairly standard 70s doomsday sci-fi.

Uneven anthology movie written by (and starring) Stephen King with George Romero. There's a few more interesting names here too - Leslie Neilson, Ted Danson, Adrienne Barbeau. I don't think it's aged all that well.

Not the best received film back in the day, but an intriguing little sci-fi mystery. 



Perhaps a little too meta for its own good, but very funny. Feels like Knives Out directed by Wes Anderson.

Not the most compelling movie you'll ever see, and Jimmy Stewart is entirely unconvincing as a baseball player, but he's right on the mark as a pilot as he'd been one during WWII, and eventually retired from the air force as a brigadier general. The planes are excellent too, if you're a plane nerd. These are of the forgotten generation between the B-29 which finished off WWII and the B-52 which is still flying today, and show off some of the engineering and designs used as bombing went from conventional to nuclear. Harry Morgan (Colonel Potter from M.A.S.H.) also pops up.

Nicolas Cage plays himself in this manic, self-referential self-parody comedy. Brilliantly nutty.

Cute but weird, and somewhat cruel (the cruelty is all simulated - the dog wasn't harmed!). Follows a gormless dachshund as the link between number of different owners in this compilation movie. Features Julie Delpy, Ellen Bursteyn, Kieran Culkin, and best segment goes to Danny DeVito. Be warned: DON'T watch if you're a sensitive animal lover.
