The nun. France, 1966.6/10
Not the pile of shit people to stupid to read reviews of are watching now.
A young woman is sent to a convent against her will.Based a novel by Denis Diderot, died 1768. It's 2.5 hours long and is gives a not to flattering view of religious life.
It wasn't boring but the plot was fairly oppressive, social standing and class are explained at the start so you are aware as the viewer that if Suzanne (the nun) gets out there'll be no 'happy ending' for her. And there isn't.It goes thru a series of events involving a lawyer, a court hearing, three different mother superiors and a priest that helps her near the end. But there is still a sense of forboding doom about the whole thing.A interesting film that hammers home certain points about life in general.

Black '47. Ireland. 2018.8.5/10Set in the spud famine of 1847, a Irish solider comes back from fighting for the British in Afghanistan.It's a 'revenge' film set in a real historical time. Because of the use of one-shot-muskets there is a distinct lack of 'bullets flying'.The film is quiet and simple, but builds to a quiet but brutal ending.

Hotel Artemis. 2018
2/10
By the look of the trailer i 'thought' it might be low budget action with a decent cast, the idea seems to be taken straight from the John Wick films. A safe house hotel where crims can go.
The J.W. films were diet-light on plot but at least they entertained with alot of action.
Not this. It's really just a drama, and not a very convincing one. Again got to the 45 min mark and hit the FF button.


Don't worry, he won't get far on foot. 2018 Dir. Gus Van Sant
4/10
Bio-pic of a paralyzed cartoonist John Callahanís autobiography. Joaquin Phoenix as John, with Jonah Hill.
Hill is good as the softly spoken AA sponsor and Phoenix as the wheelchair bound cartoonist. I was bored by the 45 min mark and started hitting off the FF button, the bulk of the story was 'John' becoming a cartoonist and his therapy sessions in AA that became a drawn out process.
Last years You Were Never Really Here also produced by Amazon was a much better.

Heavy trip. Finland. 2018.10 outta fucking 10!!!The ultimate metal comedy.The plot is simple and kinda predictable, but the humour is really fucken solid which makes the film. I found myself laughing out loud most of the way thru it. If your not a metal fan some of the references will be lost and the music is pure death metal. But the film has enough in it that anyone could be entertained.It was fun to see the T-shirts, the band references, the George 'corpsegrinder' Fisher head-banging style.This is a movie i will re-watch again, and will enjoy.

The night eats the world. France.3/10A single actor zombie movie. No subtitles.The tension is there is for the first 20+ mins then it becomes a 'how to manage alone' film. By the magical 40 min mark i had the remote in my hand was content to F.F. to the end. The marjority of the film is focused on just the one bloke in a building, but he doesn't make any attempt to go anywhere. Reminded me a 2010 german zombie film, Rammbock. Shorter in length with more characters and also set in a building. The plot was alot better.

Thirst. 2009. Dir. Park Chan Wook. South Korea.8/10
A vampire drama.The first time i tried to watch i fell asleep at the one hour mark, run time is 2hrs, since then iv watched a few other South Korean/asian films.It's a slow burn with the main focus a priest turned vampire. Not a alot of gore or violence, a bunch of people do die, but not overly gruesome. The film has a few layers to it that slowly come to the surface. Not for everyone, but iv seen 7 of his movies now and i would rate them all pretty highly.

The blacksmith and the devil.  2018.
8/10
Based a fable and made into a decent movie.
The version i got was off Netflix so even thou the trailer has subtitles the netflix one doesn't, it's overdubbed with using american actors.
Kinda draft, but it does mean you can focus a bit more on the great scenery. Most of it seemed to be actual sets, except for a few scenes near the end, but that was understandable.
The plot was complex enough to be interesting, not confusing.
Basicly, a blacksmith sells his soul and hold the demon hostage. From there its layers up but kept me interested but not bored.



Carved. The slit mouthed woman. Japan  2007.
6.5/10
A 'evil sprit' story.
Kinda low budget, with a basicly scary woman. The main theme of the film is domestic physical child abuse. The story is well written and explains it self. There aren't any really good scares like some jap horror, but it does have some 'uncomfortable' moments.
Worth a look if you are a fan of asian horror and don't mind subtitles.

Les Demons. 1973. France.
6/10
Nuns are tortured in a dungeon of horrors after being possessed by demons.
After giving up on a film called The Dark within 10 mins, i started to watch this old french film.
Some of the scenes, which can be seen in the trailer, look like there straight out of a porn shoot. There were a range of these films being made at the time, Justine, based on the De Sade novel made in 1969, that was over the top in its abuse, but not as brutal as Salo made in 1975. So i knew what i was in for.
Overall, entertaining but not really rewatchable.

The trailer has been dubbed into german.

The tag along. 2015. Taiwan.6/10.Based on a urban legend that is referenced in the film, but only briefly.Not quite the 'standard' asian horror that recycled dead women with long black hair, this has a little girl in a red dress.Creepy at the start with sounds and movements but after a while it's not too surprising. Near the end there is a significant pile up of CGI that works OK. The story is layered and keep me interested. There is a sequel. Not interested.

The Meg. 2018.
 Unrateable pile of shit.
 I had a few things i wanted to sort out and instead of trying to watch a decent movie, i put this on in the background.
 Wow. What a load of CGI garbage. Im glad i downloaded it for someone else as it was never on my list of films to watch.
 Statham plays a 'typical' hero type, but comes across as SOOO fucken cheesy it's strange, he sticks out prouder than a honeymooners dick compared to the rest of the cast. It was laughable when at times when it was supposed to be serious, if that was possible, i rolled ny eyes so many times i thought i was going to get a headache.
 
 Let the right one in. 2008. Sweden
 7/10
 A drama about a vampire and a little boy.
 Slow and steady but really engaging. Even thou it has elements of horror, the storys focus is the vampire and the boy. A nice film that doesn't have loads of edited shots. There was the inevitable 'remake' because people are to lazy to read. I took a look at the final scene.
 Compared to the original it was word for word, but rammed a lot more tension in. Won't be watching that.

Possum7/10.First feature from Matthew Holness who wrote and directed it.It does show in a lack of dialouge in some parts, actors and the scenes are long. Strange movie that was kinda hard to follow but interesting all the same. A puppeteer come home with a strange looking puppert that may or may not be alive.


The perfect dictatorship.  Mexico.
8/10.Reminded me a bit of 'Wag the dog.' but this had alot more players, and the media were the ones running things.Funny and a bit sad but reflects the nature of the 'society' we live in.

Where the buffalo roam. 1980.
6/10
Bill Murray does Hunter S. Thomson.
The first film biography of Hunter S Thomson portrayed by Bill Murray, with his lawyer by Peter Boyle. I couldn't really watch it with thinking of Fear and Loathing by Terry Gilliam. It was funny in parts but didn't fully embrace the madness and actually show Hunter trashed on drugs. The film jumped ahead a few years but overall was faithfull to the man.
Fear & L. is much better film simply because of the excess and it stuck to the book.


Dead in a week or your money back. 2018
8/10
Struggling writer, old hitman.
A funny movie about a young bloke who signs his own death warrent because he has failed to kill himself. Kinda predictable, but amusing with some LOL moments. A solid black comedy about life and death. Not really a film i'd watch again. But i found myself laughing alot.


The Devils. 1971.
8/10
A horny priest and a bunch of fucked up nuns.
Oliver Reed and Vannesa Redgrave do some solid acting in the film by Ken Russell. A piece at the start says its based on true events and figures. A full on drama with lots of politics and religion wound in together. The sets, costumes and screenplay are pretty good and although its now over 40 years old, it's a good reminder of how things were.

Liverleaf. Japan 2018
Bullying=sadistic revenge.
7.5
A film that was strong on a school bullying/revenge theme. The acting was a little subpar but quite believable enough. The gore effects were mostly practical and pretty good. The CGI that was in the film, was mostly falling snow, fire, and some blood. All nicely done, which validates my criticism of CGI bullshit blockbusters that rely on effects over plot.
The story itself unwinds as it goes, it seems simple at the start, girl is picked on, gets revenge one person at a time. But as it continues it becomes more multi layered.
Fans of asian cinema or just subtitled movies should give it a watch, i went in without watching the trailer and was thankful for it.

Lizzie. 2018.
6/10
Iv never read a full case study of the Borden murders, but iv seen the crime scene photos, read summarys and watched The Lizzie Borden Chronicles starring Christina Ricci. Entertaining, but entirely fictional.
This film goes over the 6 months before the murders. It presents an account of what probably happened.
It builds slowly, skips the murders, but revisits them in flashback. The ending has a series of short written statements that detail where everyone ended up. It's not a 'exciting' movie, but would fall solidly as a drama, with aspects of a thriller during the murders.

Death becomes her. 1992.
7/10
Drawing up a little sketch i put D.B.H. on for something to listen to and sorta watch. I finished what i wanted at the end of the film and even thou i haven't seen it since i first watched it in a cinema, it still was amusing.
One thing that was noticable was the limited use of effects.
In the early '90s 'green screen' could only be applied to little parts, so it was more of a novelty that added to the film instead of making up whole scenes. The film as a whole is simple but funny with alot of practical effects and sets. If it hadn't been made back then, there is no way it would be considered today.


The ballad of Buster Scruggs
3/10
A ever decreasing pile of shit anthology film.
I don't mind some of the Cohen bros films, but this one has ever decreasing returns.
Starts of good enough with the singing cowboy, then one by one the stories get longer and crappier. After the traveling sideshow story, i got bored and started hitting the FF button. By the time the last one started,  set entirely in a stagecoach, i FFwd through the entire thing and didn't give a shit. Why did i watch it? It was reccomended to me. I got a copy off someone else. Glad i didn't waste my broadband.
