Re: BRING BACK THE Q & As

I was the London Film Festival a few weeks ago, it didn't seem to bother the film directors there that some people had trains to catch and/or just weren't that into the film. And as I mentioned early, it makes a big difference to the experience

Re: The Golem

Beautiful photography and nice performance from leading lady but it was a little slow and it shortchanged us on the mayhem when the golem was unleashed. I sensed that the directors we're maybe being too respectful to the Hebrew myths and religions and missed the opportunity to deliver something real...

Re: Strong Year?

Defies tell a middling year. I I don't think I saw anything that I would sit down and watch again, that's not to say I didn't enjoy watching them to begin with but there was nothing outstanding. Agree with posters who say it's all DVD stuff but that seems to be the way the festival runs these days, ...

Re: Terrified

I agree with earlier post, its a darker, scarier X Files. Not as good as hyped, lets face it, it was never going to be, but worth watching definitely

Re: Open 24 Hours

Can't imagine why anyone who likes horror movies would hate this, nor can I see anyone who has watched a lot of horror moves would love it. It's just another slasher, nicely photographed, professionally staged and well acted but nothing new

Re: Climax

Best film of the festival for me, by far. The only one to produce an almost physical shock moment (actually several) where a sharp intake of breath and a moment to gather myself was required. Not an easy film to watch, arguably not a film at all, certainly not a feature film, but a piece of exhilara...

Re: BRING BACK THE Q & As

From my observation over the years, the majority of ticket holders stay for the Q&As, the filmmakers also seem to enjoy it. Goes back to my earlier point, the festival has always been about interacting with the guests and them feeling the love from the audience

Anyone know why they have stopped them, what problem they are trying to solve?

Re: What happen to the hygiene guy?

Fair point, there is more than a touch of 'school bully' about it. It was obvious that everyone in the cinema felt a bit awkward.

Re: The Man Who Killed Hitler and then The Bigfoot

None of the flashback sequences worked. There was too little shown to support the characters' 'mythical' reputation, basically he took his dog for a walk and brass-necked his way into Hitler's HQ, hardly makes him a super soldier/intellectual heavyweight/top spy. Likewise, the romance didn't hell be...

Re: Fright Fest

This looked to me like a movie that made it onto the running list because of the title rather than any inherent value. I decided that sleep was more important and it should like that was the right decision!

Re: What Keeps You Alive

I liked it, there was a nice 80s vibe running through it, without resorting to the cheesy stuff like John Carpenter style music. The leading man, I thought, was excellent.

That said, I don't think I would go back and watch it again, one viewing was enough to soak up its qualities

What happen to the hygiene guy?

The other night Ian went all medieval on some bloke for his body odour issues, talk about 'naming and shaming'. I really want to know what happened, did the guy slope off never to be seen, has he come back as a refreshed (literally) and revitalised 'new' man, or has he decided to just blag it out? S...

Re: Heretiks

Didn't rate it. Heavy on the atmosphere light on tension, narrative, characterisation', acting etc. Hannah Arteron's comment before hand that she did it because really wanted to a 'Hammer Horror' suggest that she has never seen a Hammer movie. It's a shame, Paul Hyett is a really nice guy and a terr...
