Jennifer's Body

A late replacement for Daybreakers , and another film that we enjoyed seeing at TIFF 09, did everyone manage to stay awake for this one - and did anyone spot the Lance Henriksen cameo at the end of the film? For more on Jennifer's Body then check out our new podcast which features my review of the f...

Survival Of The Dead

Paul, Ian and I really enjoyed this when it played at TIFF 09 but I know that not all reactions have been so positive... what did the FF crowd think of it?

Paranormal Activity

So, I sadly missed the all-nighter this year due to work commitments and having seen a couple of the films already... but this was the one film that I really wanted to see.

Did it live up to the hype?

Pandorum - very probably the worst film of 2009. This is the reason why Alvart's other film Case 39 got the nod at FrightFest I would imagine!

Zombieland - one of the very best films of 2009. Loved every minute of it - and it's an impressive debut for a first time director.

First things first, Moon is great - if you haven't seen it yet then go and support it if you get the chance, it's an ambitious slice of classic sci-fi and Sam Rockwell is on top form. Antichrist then... I'm still trying to digest it, and I'm not sure I know what Lars Von Trier was trying to make, if...

Agreed... I watched it on DVD last week and it is truly awful, one of the worst remakes I've ever seen... and it's a 'remake' in the very loosest sense of the word in that a) it has zombies, b) it has some soldiers, and c) it has a zombie character called Bud who is supposed to be sympathetic. Don't...

Fingers crossed I'll be running an interview with James Moran (who's written the 3rd episode of the new Torchwood series) in the next TV blog.

I just got back from seeing Bruno ... as you'd expect from Sacha Baron Cohen, if you liked Ali G and Borat then chances are you'll like Bruno too. It's the same setup, a simple narrative (gay fashion presenter goes to America aiming to become a celebrity) with a number of set pieces where he dupes i...

I might come up for it as I haven't seen the film yet either, and probably won't get the chance to see it on the big screen otherwise... will swing by the PCC on Monday when I'm in town and see if I can redeem my voucher.
