    Is Terrifier any good? I’ve been reading about the sequel and wondered if the first one is worth a go. 


    Acting is pretty poor across the board, but there's a some really good effects work. Lot of frustration from the stupid things people do (or don't).

    A lot of great reviews, though. Do you think the first is worth watching before watching the second? Seems to be pretty widely panned. 


    The acting by most of the cast in the first one is pretty poor, but it's a good introduction to the pure brutality of the main character. 

  3. Interview with Anderson about the 25(!) Year anniversary release. He admits (finally?) that he doesn't think a longer cut of the film would actually be any better than the film already is. He goes on to say that many think a longer cut would add more gore and horror, but in actual fact it would add more backstory for other characters. Of course, there would have been more gore and an extended video log section. 


    As mentioned a number of times, the footage only exists in very poor VHS quality, and much of this is lost anyway. I'm not a fan of Anderson, but I do think Event Horizon is worth seeing, if only for the set design and the madness that is that video log. Not a bad interview. 



  4. If nothing else, this has a stellar cast. It reminds me a little of a Wes Anderson movie too. Russell's first film in seven years.


    From Comingsoon.net


    “A fascinating and richly intricate tale that brilliantly weaves historical fact with fiction for a timely, cinematic experience, 20th Century Studios’ and New Regency’s original crime epic about three close friends who find themselves at the center of one of the most shocking secret plots in American history,"


    Joining Bale, Robbie, and Washington are Chris Rock, Anya Taylor-Joy, Zoe Saldana, Mike Myers, Michael Shannon, Timothy Olyphant, Andrea Riseborough, Taylor Swift, Matthias Schoenaerts, Alessandro Nivola, Rami Malek, and Robert De Niro.



  5. I don't know if it would be classed as shocking but I remember it having a profound effect on me. The Boys from the Black Stuff, when social services come to take away Yozzer's kids. That has stayed with me since that one and only time I saw it, likely 40 years ago? 


    Even before having kids, it still hits hard thinking about it, and now with kids, I do my utmost not to think about it. 

  6. Flash Gordon: First ever cinema visit and it was amazing. Saw it in a cinema at Quinton, I must have been eight or nine. Loved every minute. I can't remember the film from that screening but I do recall the forest trial. And oddly, that we had to park on a random street. 


    I think I saw Empire Strikes Back after that, with an intermission! Then Superman II, with my dad. 


    I was completely sold on cinema after Flash Gordon, but the next two movies just reconfirmed how incredible film was, and remains. 

  7. One that completely caught me off guard. Not shocking in a violent way really but 


    Major film-ruining spoiler - To Live & Die in LA



    Almost casually, they kill off the lead character, played by William Petersen. He's been front and centre, cocky, confident and the guy you expect to make it through anything. I remember double-taking during his death, and even skipped back because I wasn't sure what I'd just watched. 


    It is an excellent film, and well worth watching.
