The Man Who Fell to Earth

Hmm. Not sure if time is being kind to this once most heralded of pieces.

Moments that once impressed - the limousine dreamily cruising into the past, say - now look extraneous and clunky, with an air of self-aware flashness hanging over much else. What is also apparent is just how much Candy Clark was needed to put all this in relief. Bowie does good work in the title role of course, but it's her that stops the film folding in on itself (and, as science fiction, it's pretty much shot its bolt ideas-wise by the halfway mark). Scratch away its glossy surface and you'll find another underneath, as one critic noted.

Still very effective in parts, but becoming something of a curate's egg maybe. 7/10

Taken 2

Run of the mill sequel that never quite gets out of third gear. A bit more pep to the action would've been nice, though I suppose some of it passes muster (perhaps I'm going soft, but I quite liked the map/grenade trick). But whereas the first one took us by surprise, this sadly proves largely forgettable. And did anyone else find the Mills/daughter parts a bit on the creepy side? 5/10

Edward scissorhands - Brilliant film with a great cast. I look back and now see what a state Tim Burton and Johnny's later films have become.

Behind the Candelabra 8/10.

Great film, Michael Douglas should get an Oscar for this ( he never will though), the fact that he managed to avoid making a caricature of Liberace is absolutely outstanding.

The Cremator ( Juraj Herz -1968)

9/10

If you like slow paced, dark, grim and unhinged Czech movies then this is your baby.


A stunning performance from the lead actor Rudolf Hrusínský




http://www.amazon.co.uk/The-Cremator...s=The+Cremator
The Cremator (Spalovaè mrtvol) A film by Juraj Herz Czech Republic / 1968 1972 Sitges Film Festival / Best Actor - Rudolf Hrusínský

Juraj Herz’s filmThe Cremator has been described in many ways - as surrealist-inspired horror, as expressionist fantasy and as a dark and disturbing tale of terror. Combining horror with humour, this brilliant black comedy, set in Prague during the Nazi occupation, tells the story of Karl Kopfrkingl an increasingly deranged cremator for whom the period offers great possibilities for acting out his psychotic impulses as contribution towards the’salvation of the world’.

Based on the novel of the same name by Ladislav Fuks the film centers around a truly chilling lead performance by Rudolf Hrusinsky as the demonic, death obsessed Karl Kopfrkingl. He is the owner of a crematorium in the early stages of the Nazi occupation of Czechoslovakia who finds in the situation an opportunity to fulfill his business ambitions, justify his anti-semitism and exert his obsession for control. His discovery that his wife has 'impure' blood sends him a psychopathic spiral.

I Give It a Year - 7/10

Not a bad film, the best bit about it was Stephen Merchant, but he was only in it a little at the start and a little at the end. But his were funny. There was also a bit with Olivia Coleman which had me stitches.

But other than that it wasn't remarkablr

Saw Taxi Driver last night, wow. Remember trying to watch it years ago and probably didn't fully appreciate it then. Definite one to recommend.

Byzantium - 9/10. Dark and deep. A nice twist on the traditional vampire story. Thoroughly enjoyed it. Also loved the fact Ukraine's 2012 Eurovision song was played

V/h/s . Pretty good found footage horror very unusual.

Trouble with the curve . Clint Eastwood produced and starred in this . Not very good a bit boring some of the baseball terminology went over my head and he basically played the same part as he did in gran Torino but without the casual racism.

Winter's Bone - 9.5/10 Utterly heartbreaking, well filmed and wonderfully acted - Jennifer Lawrence and John Hawkes were outstanding.

Oz The Great & Powerful
Disappointing! It's not a bad film but there was absolutely no sense of wonder. And some of the FX were poor (particularly the scene where the group are traveling in a bubble). Director Sam Raimi seems to have lost his magic touch these past few years. The last film that I enjoyed from him was SPIDER-MAN 2.




The Three Musketeers (1993)
This is the one that starred Charlie Sheen and Keifer Sutherland. I remember being a fan of this when it first came out. I watched it once again and... well... it bored the crap out of me. Thumbs down.
