Re: Random Weekend Thoughts...

It's a real shame that they are dividing up that cinema, but I guess it does not get filled, bar a few premiers and festivals. With all those millions of pounds certain people earn in the film industry, perhaps someone could fund an imax screen that rises up from the floor to split the auditorium, s...

Re: Dark Touch

Seemed to punish everyone for one thing or another that could have been avoided with a bit of talking. (1) school bullies, probably deserved it at the party, but their ending was "Oh look, we have a CGI budget". (2) the adults who fostered her meant well and probably would have avoided the HUGE sins...

Re: We Are What We Are

Remarkably good reworking of the original. "Now that was a horror film" said the missus as it ended.

Re: Top Five Films

I only went to two full days and some individual films on the other days, but found only one film* not to like. Willow Creek We Are What We Are Big Bad Wolves Cheap Thrills Banshee Chapter I really liked all of the other films I saw on Saturday, plus Hatchet III and Haunter on Friday. Making this my...

Willow Creek

"Oh yeah, you know that Blair Witch thing that everyone loved last century? I could do that". (Not actual quote, but true.) Turns out what it takes is an endearing cast and some tight direction the the spookiest scene and a song about Big Foot. Lovely film. Turns out all of us (me included) who had ...

Re: Hatchet III

So glad I started with this one, top entertainment as ever.
Nice to see those cameos and continued in-jokes.

And *proper* SFX !

Re: The Hypnotist

Solid Scandinavian thriller (may well have been stretched too thin if it became a series) with superlative direction, by the director one of my favourite films (My Life as a Dog). The slow pace exploded quite nicely in that final scene, even if (as discussed with a fellow FF attendee over the dinner...

Re: Hammer of the Gods

This was a cracking romp. The guys beforehand set the scene nicely. Not too serious, Lock Stock and Two Smoking Axes, did some one say? Manages to convey a heroic quest, with a preposterous and over the top ending. I am not particularly interested in naked men wrestling, but several of the ladies ar...

Re: Cheap Thrills

Excellent stuff. Indecent Proposal meet decent acting, decent script and ultraviolence. Anyone else expecting some sort of twist like Kill List and being pleasantly surprised by the finale. As we were saying afterward, Craig was the most ruthless because he was not doing it for himself but his famil...

Re: R.I.P.D

I suspect it's going to die on its arse - objectively, it's an uncomfortable blend of different elements that never quite works to anyone's satisfaction, like a bar of chilli chocolate. I liked this film but not as much as I like chili chocolate, Agree with your summary otherwise. Fun stuff, slight...

Re: No One Lives

I've now enjoyed this twice (before the film, I was thinking, "Yeah I saw that film "Everyone Dies", I wonder if this is a sequel"). Very watchable lead, manages to make jokes without becoming Freddie Kreuger or sequel-based Pinhead. Some rather good use of the gore, for people who like that sort of...

I paid thirteen quid for the soundtrack. Including postage from Spain I think.

Re: Massive Thanks

Where were you sat, Duke A'bides ? Just want to know if I am being left out. :-) It seems like it's that time of year when the complaints thread outdoes the praise & thanks thread, and so once again: Personally, I don't want a festival of similar films that I'd go and see anyway, I want to be presen...
