You know, I think I did exactly the same thing, and it's STILL sitting unwatched on a shelf somewhere. Is it the one with Servants of Twilight on it as well?
Yep, that's the one. 'The Mind Snatchers' is the fourth film.

I've bought hundreds of cheapo DVDs in the last few years. I've stopped buying them now, and I'm finally working my way through my backlog. Anything I don't like or don't think I'll watch again is getting traded in. This compilation is probably worthless, but I think I would have kept it just on the strength of 'Jericho Mansions' anyway. Like I say, it isn't a bad film, and the picture quality is okay.

'The Mind Snatchers' sounds intriguing...... One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest meets A Clockwork Orange, according to the blurb on the box inlay!

EDIT Actually, it isn't worthless. I can get 30p credit for it at CeX, if I so desire!

Kill Bill vol 1 & Kill Bill vol 2.

This is the first time I've seen either film but as I enjoyed the first, I decided to watch the other straight afterwards. I thought they were great films with great characters. I didn't mind the violence as it was pretty integral to the story. 9/10

German post-apocalypse yarn with the survivors doing the usual survivor things.

Friends with Benefits which was on tv last night. I thought it was a really enjoyable Rom com, the two leads bounced off each other well and made it one if the better Rom com's I've seen in recent years. 8/10

Prisoners - 7/10. Would of been a great TV series, rather than a movie. Sometimes it felt like it went on for too long with no real story development.

The girl with the dragon Tattoo.

Meh. It was OK. Just ok. It felt a bit bland, a bit dull at times. I didn't really know what to expect as I hadn't read the book but I just expected a bit more oomph. 5/10.

The Heat [2013] - Sandra Bullock/Melissa McCarthy - Whilst not my favourite movie of either actress, still had its moments of genius. B+

Just watched Insidious.

I quite liked it. Some of the acting could have been a bit more convincing. I liked the aspects of astral travel. All in a all, a decent scare film. 7/10

Phone Booth 9/10
Just a great movie

Precious 8/10
Certainly darker then I thought. The incest threw me but it was a well acted and interesting film to watch.

Schindler's List 10/10
One of Spielberg's best works. Had me crying at the end

Solaris (2002) - Very creepy & atmospheric. Admittedly slow in parts, but it's not supposed to be guts out all action anyway.

7/10.

Just finished watching 'The Call' with Halle Berry and Abigail Breslin. Absolutely loved it, best film i've watched in a while.

If you like thrillers or suspense films then you should check it out.

Weirdly watchable fantasy of four army deserters in the English Civil war,who get involved with a mad alchemist and his search for a 'treasure'.

It's hilairious. Ben Wheatly is fast becoming one of my fave directors.

Contagion - 7/10

Really great plot and acting, and thinking about it happening in real life is what makes it good. But it was all a bit boring. Not as exciting as I was led to believe from reviews.
