28/02/15 One Hundred Mornings (2009)

Four people are stuck in an Irish shed after an unspecified end-times event. Starts of as something resembling an enforced camping trip, by the end it's all gone completely arse-shaped and the remaining survivors are a couple of wild potatoes short of cannibalism.

That's pretty much the plot in it's entirety. It's good though in a bleak kinda way.

27/02/15 Taken 3 (2014)

Half way through this film, I went for a poo and a shower (not at the same time, I'm not German) and having missed 20 or 30 minutes of the film, I managed to entirely fill in everything I'd missed almost instantly. 

The main thing I noticed, aside from the series' unrelenting fucking terribleness, is how big Liam Neeson's nose is:

Liam Nose-on more like.

Anyway, whoever writes these films should put away the crayons and have some Ribena or something.


26/02/15 Devil's Pass (2013)

Ignoring the slightly dubious way this film uses a genuine historical tragedy to make a snowy version of Blair Witch, it's pretty good.

Although it goes a bit bonkers in the end with trans-dimensional space pixies from the futrepast.


25/02/15 Backwood (2014)

TV historian goes a bit brain wonky and starts seeing ghosts in the big spooky house he's just bought.

We were surprised to see how old and bald Paul Kaye is looking. Definitely different to his Dennis Pennis days.

Told you. Most people prob know him now from Game Of Thrones as he's apparently in that. We seem to be the only people on earth who don't watch that shit. Watched the first episode, it was fucking balls.

23/02/2015 Top Gun (1986)

When I first saw this Tom Cruise was taller than me, Val Kilmer was slim and everybody thought Kelly McGillis was straight. Funny how things turn out.

Terrible, terrible writing but I enjoyed this old toffee.  My 80s movie soundtrack album on the way to work tomorrow I reckon, and as I work in Redhill "Highway to the Danger Zone" seems apt.



22/02/2015 The Liability(2012)

Jack O'Connell is as good as ever as a hapless and unwitting sidekick to a hitman.  Read the previous Plop.



22/02/2015 Innerspace (1987)

Hadn't seen this all the way through for over 20 years. It's still good fun and the effects have held up surprisingly well.  The hair and fashion hasn't.
