20/04/14 Wolf Creek 2 (2013)

Average Australian kills people in utterly pointless sequel. John Jarratt does good nutter though.


20/04/14 The Great St Trinians Train Robbery (1966)

Girls and young women in revealing skirts and a man blacked-up with a joke ethnic accent. Basically a UKIP conference.


19/04/14 Dead Of Night (1945)

Vintage anthology spook-flick. Very of its era in some ways, and not in others. The brilliant Adam Curtis talks of it in this blog entry of his:

Although he does give away the twist and the end.

Anyway, yeah, it's fun old nonsense.

Back when people were called Basil, Naunton and Peggy.

"So it's agreed, car keys in the fruitbowl and no awkward questions in the morning." 

After dinner, the gentlemen stood to enjoy a phat blunt.

Things were so formal in 1945, this was pyjamas.

In fact they were SO stiff and formal people risked becoming wood.

However obesity was not the problem it is now, people had to just pretend being fat.

"So what is 'non-reversable Progressive Lerp Syndrome?"
"It means I increasingly become trouser."


19/04/14 China Girl (1987)

Some idiots have an unconvincing gang war because they are frustrated at being bad actors.


19/04/14 Jackass Presents: Bad Grandpa (2013)

Johnny Knoxville dresses up as an old man and plays pranks on unsuspecting public peoplefolk. The most entertaining part is when he throws money at an eight-year-old transvestite boy who is stripping on a stage.

And that, dear reader, is the most worrying, netpolice-alarm-triggering sentence I've ever typed.


19/04/14 The Raid 2 (2014)

The pint-sized puncher from the first film returns in an over-long, disappointingly sane follow up.

The lunacy picks up in the last twenty minutes, but it takes far too long to get there. Enjoyable enough on its own merits, but not as wonderfully bonkers as the first.

MY brother and I saw this in the West End, apparently on the same day when the entire fucking world decided to go to London and amble around like some type of fleshy tumbleweeds.


19/04/14 Carry On At Your Convenience (1971)

The one with the toilets. Not as silly as some of the others.
