The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen Volume III: Century #3 2009 review

Posted : 1 year, 9 months ago on 15 February 2016 09:19 (A review of The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen Volume III: Century #3 2009)

3rd and final part in this too long and drawn out saga I am normally a fan of artist Kevin O Neill but most of this seems sloppy and just a bit dull

the story is just well a complete let-down with God (possibly) being revealed as a female somewhat like Mary Poppins. The big villain a teenage boy and It just comes across as too agenda driven - and that agenda being power to women

The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen Volume III: Century #2 1969 review

Posted : 1 year, 9 months ago on 15 February 2016 09:14 (A review of The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen Volume III: Century #2 1969)

a bit ho hum to be honest - oh it has drug taking and some plan for a satanic ritual

possibly the best part is the post hippy epilogue as such

The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen Volume 3: Century #1 1910 review

Posted : 1 year, 9 months ago on 15 February 2016 09:11 (A review of The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen Volume 3: Century #1 1910)

I read this about a week ago and I am struggling to recommend it - Kevin O Neills art is fine of course but what little story there is just exists as a background to the other 2 volumes

The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen: The Black Dossier review

Posted : 1 year, 9 months ago on 14 February 2016 11:28 (A review of The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen: The Black Dossier)

A huge chunk to read, view and digest in this series

Though its interesting to see all the pop cultural references you are left wondering where is Moore and originality in all this? Its much like when you see a picture made out of other peoples work or a song made out of 100s of samples of other songs...an interesting technical exercise but thats it

At the end i felt that Moore is just using these other creations and not really doing anything with them other than fueling some weird feminist agenda - the misunderstanding of Flemings James Bond character is amazing

Has Moore turned into a 1 trick pony where every series has to be some highly convoluted and faux-intricate piece? I say faux because if you take away the 100s of in-jokes and references there really isnt much here at all

The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen, Vol. 2 review

Posted : 1 year, 9 months ago on 10 February 2016 07:38 (A review of The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen, Vol. 2)

A nice sequel to the original LOEG but it seems to me Moore is a little obsessed with rape and like Watchmen we end up "liking" possibly the most violent character in the series

Wonderful art by O Neill

Don't Look Up review

Posted : 1 year, 11 months ago on 9 December 2015 10:09 (A review of Don't Look Up)

I eventually got around to watching this film last night - what a disappointment only a slightly good atmosphere, some potential and some gorgeous looking actresses save this...for a horror movie to have no atmosphere nor scares is criminal

sub-par

Japan's answer to Donnie Darko - interesting but weird as hell movie - the lead actress is kind of ugly and beautiful

Black Mirror review

Posted : 2 years ago on 19 November 2015 07:22 (A review of Black Mirror)

Largely enjoyable mix of classic anthology elements a bit of Twilight Zone here, Tales Of The Unexpected there, Hammer House of Horror in other places and mix it with a bit o near future tech of Minority Report...it would not surprise me if writer Charlie Brooker is a Philip K Dick fan

IMHO the series starts weak with the premise that a kidnapped princess would lead to a Prime Minister humiliation, weird, different but weak with the main premise being interesting yet implausible - yes suspension of belief is often necessary for a series like this but this was a stretch too far for me

Luckily the series gets better with 3 great episodes - The Entire History Of You - where people can store and replay memories ; White Bear - a Kafka-esque mind f--k where a woman with no memory is being hunted ; and White Christmas a long special containing 3 interlinked stories told by 2 men isolated in a small home during winter

Overall 8/10 - almost as good as the first 2 series of Tales OF The Unexpected which is THE benchmark for anthology shows

Dead Set review

Posted : 2 years ago on 19 November 2015 06:57 (A review of Dead Set)

I have been catching up on material written by Charlie Brooker and eventually got around to watching this short series

The premise was intriguing but ultimately never really utilised that well at all and quickly shifted to the standard modern day zombie thing, where the graphics are gory but its all quick cuts and the zombies are fast

For a comedy its surprisingly short on laughs and the best moments come when from the nasty producer and the dimwitted contestant Pippa

Sadly I think this was written on auto-pilot with lots of swearing and POV camcorder type stuff replacing a decent script, character building etc etc which at nearly 5 hours in length in total is criminal - no excuse for it

Despite some good moments - the horror stuff is by numbers and never really that effective as we have seen this stuff 1000s of times - the comedy is vulgar and only funny at times

Ultimately a nice idea but not fully realised

4/10 - but for one new angle on zombies watch the film Pontypool instead

Pacific Rim review

Posted : 4 years, 3 months ago on 17 August 2013 02:44 (A review of Pacific Rim)

Take Neon Genesis Evangelion shorten it to 2 hours remove all signs of religious context, remove anything vaguely cerebral,or unique, make the Kaiju/the monsters look like Cloverfield rejects add lots of flashing lights and splash on a complete lack of logic.Add all the dumb cliches of nearly every action movie.

It was a great brainless popcorn flick and would have been one of the best films ever if they had just stuck to giant robots fighting giant sea monsters rather than try and have a "story" - the middle section could have easily been binned

If this movie was not so well made - the visuals are mouth wateringly good - it would be a travesty as nearly everything else sucks

Open your eyes - shut down your brain to enjoy

okay horror about a girl who is forced to start a new school within a woods which holds a secret A small role for horror stalwart Bruce Campbell doesnt lift this much above average and this simply reminds me of a kids show about witchcraft with a bit more gore apart from the period setting -its in the mid 60s this simply did not have any wow factor at all

Riddle Room
lifted from IMDB -- Emily Burns is being held captive in a room with no idea as to why or how she got there. Determined to escape and return to her daughter and husband, Emily discovers clues within the room that help explain what she's doing there. They even provide clues about who she is...but will they help her escape? Not bad low budget thriller/mindfuck/puzzle type of film a little like Cube A bit repetitive but nice sort of off kilter atmosphere though the ending is kind of dopey

Thank you dude, about the votes and recommendations, i will check them out, i just saw Rigor Mortis yesterday, and it was quit fun. About the top 6 on my marathon. 28 days is one of my favorites, Thirst was interesting in a very good way, i love it, besides, i love wook films, an american werewolf its great, i like carrie and Peurs du noir has 3 or 4 shorts that are extraordinaries, but whispering corridors was not so great, it was cool to see the film that started all this wave of asian films but it wasnt that great.

By the way, there is a second Marathon, http://www.listal.com/list/fifth-maraton this was last year i think, on July there will be a third

Choosing films for my horror marathon was a process that should have been more complicated than it was, I just went by whether it was tagged as horror on listal or not, which was a big mistake. I watched the movie Manhunter and I just couldn't call it a horror movie. I Saw The Devil was certainly more of a horror movie than a lot of those movies on that list, I feel.

Thanks for the vote, man.

Maybe you didn't see the response to your first forum post but it's very easy to add a movie if you have the IMDB link. Just cut and paste it into the search box and the item will automatically be added.

What do you think a good list is for me to make?
Posted: 4 years, 9 months ago at Feb 14 20:10
Thanks for the vote and comment... and I would answer :) maybe for the people who created these films, cinema is their life...

Thanks for the vote! And feel free to "rip" ideas from my double feature list. There isn't really much to rip, and I wasn't the first to think of it anyway, I don't think.

Thanks for the comment on my "H.P. Lovecraft On Film" list, and thanks for the recommendation. I added it to the list. I've only seen Gurotesuku (aka Grotesque) by the same director, which was a pretty decent (and fairly disturbing) take on the "torture-porn" genre films such as Hostel, etc. I'll have to check out "Occult" now as well.
