16 posts from 12 to 29 August 2017.

  • Bangkok Dangerous

    Light drama meets tourism postcard with murders.

  • Warm Bodies

    Ravenous consumers of human flesh are people too. At least when they literally turn to people.

  • Saw III

    Yet another formulaic sadistic gorefest. I almost sawed some logs while watching this.

  • Breaking and Entering

    Hipster cheats his wife thrice, while ignoring her autistic kid, gets away with it with passionate kisses.

  • Freejack

    The one where Mick Jagger is the good badguy with a silly helmet.

  • Species II

    Fucking Predator, literally, with even more fucking.

  • Magic Mike XXL

    More beefcakes, but softer and funnier. Strips the film down to the basics, namely dry-humping all sorts of women while wearing thongs.

  • Elektra

    Another superhero film with a script that fits in a single page.

  • Guys and Dolls

    A filmed Broadway play that makes for a good musical but a not-so-good film.

  • Mississippi Burning

    Morons massacre minorities in Mississippi, Mulders mount manhunt, mortified locals maim more, motherfuckers must rot in jail.

  • Four Rooms

    Regular Tarantino crap, even though he only directed a fourth of this. His lousiness infects other directors.

  • Magic Mike

    Beefcakes are sensitive people too, beneath those massive layers of muscle.

  • Being John Malkovich

    What can you say about a Charlie Kaufman script?

  • The Company Men

    Follows the stories of three salaryman, unsurprisingly.

  • Coming Home

    Yimou Zhang goes minimal and makes a film with only three characters, a nuclear family.

  • Dunkirk

    A truly cinematic experience that eschews dialogue and characterisation for Stuka sirens and Hans Zimmer horns.
