Le weekend Sat 25th, Sun 26th and Mon 27th of May 2013.
It was a bank holiday weekend but I seem to have watched fewer movies than a normal weekend!? I’m not sure how I managed that but I guess I did. This is the list of films, reviews to come!
DREAMSCAPE (1984) – An old favourite of mine from the 80’s I used to get all freaked out and had to watch this with my mum! 7/10
HERO (2002) – Old school classic, I watched this with my ma to start the weekend rolling! 8/10
*ABBY (1974) – I dunno how I’ve missed this movies all these years, a little comical due to the age of it but actually quite a cool possession movie. 6/10
*CELDA 211 (2009) – WOAH! I adore European and South American prision movies, this is getting remade but I’d recommend that everyone watch the original before it gets watered down (which I predict will happen). 9/10
*EVIL DEAD (2013)– I don’t wanna talk about how s1ht this movie is. 1/10
MANS BEST FRIEND (1993) – A blast from the past, this could have bee like the thing if the comedy was taken out and if the director REALLY wanted to scare some people. 4/10.
*DIAMOND DOGS (2007) – No dolph.. just no..
THE CROW (1994) – Should be in my GOAT list, definitely one of the films that helped me define myself as a teen. I remember when goths used to aim to kick some A$$. 10/10
RED HILL (2010) – I picked this up last year or so ago thinking it was going to be a western even though it plays out like one it’s such an awesome ozzy movie. 8/10
*SKYFALL (2012) – Finally a James Bond movie that I actually like! It’s not uber superb but yay! 8/10
*THE BUNKER (2001) – Meh.. it plays like a rehash of Deathwatch. 4/10
*LEVIANTHAN (1989) – This is like every underwater adventure mixed up including Jaws.. still quite good for the effects and superb one liners. 6/10
*LES 7 JOURS DE TALION (2010) – I love this.. totally love it, the feeling, cinematography, storyline and raw emotions are all prefect! 9/10
*STATIC (2012)– Started out as a bit of a remake of Ils – Them (2006) but then soon twisted into one of the best plots I’ve seen from Holywood for some time. 8/10
*THE KOVAK BOX (2006) – I think this movie was trying to make a drama out of a molehill, or a mystery out of a simple story, I dunno.. I tried to like it but it just tripped and failed after the first hour. 5/10
*ANTROPOPHAGUS (1980) – WHOO! I love Italian horror especially with lot of baby and intestine eating! 7/10
*HAPPINESS – I only made it half way though this movie but I was thoroughly enjoying it before I had to go to work L
* denotes a first viewing!
It was a fairly good bank holiday weekend, there were some highs..
- The Crow
- Celda 211
- Les 7 Jours de talion
And some lows
- Diamond Dogs
- Evil Smeg..
I’m actually a little worried about the amount of USA movies I’ve been watching lately! I’ll loose my street cred soon.
