This looks amazing, has some great humour in it, but... it just isn't very good.

So, two vastly different movies this evening:

I've never seen Brando in his prime, only in his later movies. Now I can see why he's so highly rated as an actor.



This is absolutely brilliant. It would have been so easy to fuck it all up, but this movie absolutely nails it with the humour and the attention to detail in how it all looks.

Yeah, not bad. I can see why it was so highly rated, but I don't feel like it's that earth-shattering.

Kind of quirky and all a bit silly - who knew the plague could be funny?

This was great! It's found footage POV, but it's more Man Bites Dog than Blair Witch Project.

^ That's definitely one of the better found footage movies.



Hardly anyone knows this 1965 Japanese film which is a real shame. Loved it.

I'm not much of a rap fan, but I know the classics. This was really good.

One of those things where I'm not sure that I get it, but I enjoyed it anyway.

File under 'so bad it's good'. 

Gory as fuck, with surprising guest appearances that are worlds apart (Kerry King and Lionel Richie).

Really fucking silly, but what do you expect with a title like that?

Better than its reputation but with several really drastic changes in tone that are quite jarring - including a section where it feels like its turned into a Bollywood movie. Confused

A movie about a killer car tyre...


80 slasher with a twist. Also possibly the only movie with Bruce Campbell in it where he doesn't have the biggest chin.


Big dumb dinosaur shark movie. A lot of fun if you don't take it too seriously.

Cool fight scene, but otherwise mostly a big yawn.

People tended to run down the previous iteration of Resident Evil movies but they were better than this piece of shit snoozefest.

Yeah, don't do it because it upsets the monster which is a cross between the giant Ghoulie and the Toxic Avenger. This is also the cleanest cover I could find...

I only ever saw these years ago when they first came out on video, so thought I should rewatch to see if I felt as indifferent as I remembered. And it turns out the answer is yes. Yes, it's NZ scenery. Yes, my missus was housemaid for a lot of the stars of this movie and still won't tell me who except Viggo Mortensen which I figure out for myself. And yes, I still only rate it 3/5.

Not exactly a B-movie, but not an A-movie either... B+ I reckon. Danny Trejo is always fun, and here he teams up with Mickey Rourke for all sorts of devilish bloodthirsty Western fun.

Good dumb fun with an excellent '70s soundtrack.
