I think it gets overlooked in Hitchcock's canon - although, it's sort of referred to in cinebuffs circles as "his last great work".

Yeah, there's lots of stuff about the film that makes it...

Yeah, I've just got back from the cinema watching this. Yeah, it's not quite up to the standard of the first film - but, it's still one of the better superhero films. A compelling storyline, good...

Do you really think that Tories are right wing under Davey Boy? It sort of depends on your definition - but he is just sort of carrying on from where NuLabour and his mentor Tony Blair left off.

LOL - That sounds like what Tyler Durden did in "Fight Club" - with splicing in nude pictures into kids' films. I wonder if the people that you knew was inspired by that? :D

I'm 38 - and I got in. It's a cheap deal - and if you have a day off work - then it's good way to catch-up on slightly old releases for the cinema.

It just struck me as a bit strange given that the film was rated U - but as people have said it is the Senior Screen - so it aimed at an older audience.

As for kids - well, they could have come...

So, remember to go to the toilet beforehand! :D Yeah, that is the thing that sort of concerns me a bit - I wonder if the film is too long and has a load of padding and unnecessary scenes.

Hopefully, there will be more screenings at other venues like it says on the website. It's nice seeing old films back on the big screen. I wonder if any of the other chains(e.g. Curzon) will show...

EDIT - I suppose I should add what sound system would it have(mono, stereo, Dolby 7.1, IMAX 6.1, DTS, SDDS or Dolby Atmos)? Also, would you show stuff in 3D?

Yeah, quite a good film. It just shows you that Joel Schumacher can make a decent film(he did it with Falling Down and Tigerland - I suppose). Colin Farrell gives a good performance - and of course...

Stark (1993 Mini Series)

Anyone remember that? The BBC and Australian co-production of Ben Elton's novel. Screened on the BBC in 1993. It's an eco thriller. I recently did a re-watch. It stands up pretty well(although...

I got the chance to see it at The Prince Charles cinema in London. It's offbeat for sure. Great and unusual sound design - as I suppose is to be expected from Strickland. Whilst I found the film...
