  • The Spy Who Loved Me

    Equal parts Benny Hill, eye watering melodrama and regular Bond villain megalomania.

  • Suspiria

    Flash Gordon meets Braindead, but not as developed as any of those.

  • A Bridge Too Far

    The eventual depressing sequel to Saving Private Ryan. A top-down fretting of the generals over thousands of dead, massive collateral civilian damage, and chaos; just a regular war. 3 hours of relentless defeats, failure and waste of effort.

  • The Island of Dr. Moreau

    I’m pretty sure H. G. Wells didn’t write a book discussing eugenics (the latest scientific theories at the time) with the intent of having so many people wrestling with tigers, lions, and bears. That part completely overshadows the rest of the plot about the modern day Prometheus.
