The remake of Goodbye Pork Pie is pretty average

So was the original, apart from the stunts. Dated pretty badly.

Just watched Spielberg's Ready Player One on the big screen.
This is a visual treat, full of gaming nostalgia, but characters lack any real depth/development

Has anyone seen the new Romper Stomper series? Is it good?

Thats disappointing to hear, ive been looking forward to that.
New romperstomper series is not worth the time of day. Its shit house, its lost any cross over to the punk or Oi genre, its just contemporary xenophobia portrayed in a tedious drama. The only similarity to the o.g film is the title really.

German History X NSU is kind of interesting. It touches on how rampant german nationalism was within the youth of the GDR. I like a lot of Deutsch punk also which there is a bit of in there too. FUHRER EX is an awesome.book of a similar context

Been watching S1 of Alfred Hitchcock Presents. Pretty deece, but I imagine the format would be bloody tiring by the time you've watched the other bajillion episodes from the rest of the seasons.

Pretty funny. Rowland Rivron is my new hero, showing his dick to Penelope Keith is just awesome.

I just can't think of a more appropriate actress to show the goods to... hmmm, maybe there's a poll in that.

White of the Eye (1987)

A cult film set in a US desert town that isn't a drag. Just the right amount of crazy on a seemingly normal backdrop. Controversial due to the serial killings with a couple of shots from first-person perspective I guess, as apparently they cut a bit of good stuff out of it.

Il ladro di bambini (The Stolen Children), early 90s Italian movie. This movie kind of got to me, the kids are just so damn good... there's an Italian tradition of casting non-actors, especially in kid roles, and just getting them to more or less play themselves, with minimal scripting. Lots of social comment about what a fucked up and corrupt place Italy is but it's never heavy handed about it. The male lead is a bit of a doofus but the kids carry the movie. Left me an emotional wreck by the end.

The Nun had lots of cool bits - demon nuns, old abandoned castle, Romania and great production design, but too many artificial jump scares and bad comic relief. The Nun serves somewhat as a prequel to The Conjuring.
I thought the lead actress was great, and looked a lot like the lead actress in Conjuring (Vera Farmiga). Turns out it's her younger sister.

Went to see the advanced screening of the new Suspiria
It borrows the basic plot from Dario Argento's orginal classic, but it is essentially more of a re-imagine than a remake.

The incredible true story behind the most controversial Italian court cases in recent years. Stefano Cucchi was arrested for a minor crime and mysteriously found dead during his detention. In one week's time, a family is changed forever.


Bloody tragic. Great movie though.

So I finally got round to watching Mulholland Drive. Did not expect it to be really, really shit. An incoherent screenplay is not stimulating or inventive storytelling. The icing on the cake is that David Lynch maintains there is a solid, coherent plot that the movie is based on but he won't tell anyone what it is. So you can't even look up exactly what the fuck was going on once you've finished watching it.

Further problems include cringy sex scenes, unnecessary titties (for me, there is a time and place for lots of titties eg in trashy, budget horror movies, and they become a bit of an embarrassment in a picture that's supposed to have a bit of class), and the cheap sets and corny acting in the majority of the film don't seem to help in any way. The corny acting worked in Twin Peaks, giving it a kind of depth of mood that could vary from cheesy to frightening. I guess it's supposed to make the Los Angeles setting feel more dreamlike, but it just just ends up making the film look and sound like shit. Compare these stills from Mulholland Drive and The Room:

I'm not convinced it looks that much better. In fact, The Room also has less loose ends in its plot. It's also less boring. And it doesn't take as long to watch.

The Room is a better movie than Mulholland Drive.
