Separatist Donetsk reminds me how we used to grow up in the Soviet Union ( a lot of patriotic brainwashing) except that we were not involved in such an active military training.

Stung - 2/10

 

Characters I had less than zero emotional investment in waded through stolid dialogue and stock situations. You don't expect a movie about giant wasps to deliver greatness, but you do expect it to be fun.

 

CREATOR: gd-jpeg v1.0 (using IJG JPEG v80), default quality

 

Turbo Kid - 6/10

 

Combines massive levels of gore with a genuine sweetness - a heartfelt homage to the 80s that manages to stay the right side of try-hard. Great soundtrack, if you like synth stuff!

Mission: Impossible - Rogue Nation (2015): 8/10

 

Darn good brainless action--a lot of fun.

Lucy 6/10. Strange story with bad CGI.

Hey guys. Just back from 5 days of Fright Fest, in London. Saw 26 films in total - thought I'd round up my highlights for any horror fans out there :veryevil:

 

We Are Still Here - 7/10 - Very stylish - packed full of references to 70s and 80s Euro Horror.

Jeruzalem - 7/10 - A total blast - sensory overload - shows there's occasionally still life in the old found footage dog yet.

Sun Choke - 7/10 - Ambiguous but intriguing film about control (and losing it).

Slumlord - 6/10 - Properly sleazy and nasty. Makes you feel like you need a shower after watching it!

Over Your Dead Body - 9/10 - Takashi Miike's best film since 13 Assassins - a post-modern take on Yotsuya Kwaidan.

Night Fare - 8/10 - Channels the spirit of Drive in an audacious thriller that takes a few unexpected turns.

They Look Like People - 8/10 - Proves you don't need a big budget for big scares. The dread of creeping insanity captured perfectly.

 

And if there's one film I'd say avoid at at all costs, it's Some Kind of Hate - a film so stupid it hurts. We're talking 1/10 territory.

^ Your nerves are stone. I feel my face going weep-mode just by reading the list. Last I remember seeing (why did I, why?) is The Exorcism of Emily Rose which was a serious slap on my mental. Was looking over my shoulder for about two weeks after :evil:

 

In the mood for some science fiction yesterday I've watched District 9. I'll say that Sharlto Copley is a fine actor skill-wise. Towards the end it became less captivating so my attention started to drift a bit. Verdict with decimals 6.7

I really like District 9. It's not without its faults but I love the body horror aspect (Wikus's transformation reminded me of The Fly) and it's such an original concept - one of my favourite sci-fi films of the last 10 years.

Just like the people you know, charm can win out over faults, most of the time.
