Re: Human Centipede II

Human Centipede 2 is an adult film that has been refused an 18 certificate, discussing the state of bad parenting in relation to this is moving the goal posts in an annoying and dangerous direction. I know many on here are very good at playing devil's advocate in order "to be fair to the BBFC", but...

Re: films we just saw

Hey! PeterPan, It's been a while, good to see you back on the boards. If I'm honest I don't reckon you'll like Orcs, and I'm not sure how you'll feel about Eaters either- maybe too trashy for your refined tastes and rigorous standards, and I'm not just an unashamed fan of ZWOS, I'm a proud and evang...

Re: films we just saw

I didn't think too much of Prey either, and the French are usually so nasty. Mostly I couldn't quite buy the mixture of elite petrochemical business men and down to earth farmers spread across three generations of the same wealthy, but also desperately poor, family. Given that I couldn't suspend dis...

Re: films we just saw

But is Transformers 3 as bad as Skyline? If you like a bit of cheap and cheerful, far-fetched but relevant, science fiction, you could do a lot worse than: Eyeborgs - Awesome sci-fi supertrash that’s packed full of noisily silly fun and quietly subversive politics. In a near future America where cof...

Re: Human Centipede II

I'm completely down with The Aylmer's Darwinist arguement- we don't need to protect people who are that stupid, even if they do actually exist (which I very much doubt), the human genepool could use a little chlorine. I have to wonder if the BBFC's arguement (that adults will attempt to recreate sce...

Re: what dvds are we buying?

My new week's films arrived a couple of days ago including True Grit, Paul, Hereafter and the surprisingly entertaining Sanctum. But both the Zombie films I was expecting, Eaters: Rise of the Dead and Ninjas vs. Zombies have been delayed. Gutted! If I go a week or so without watching (and being disa...

Re: Genre guidelines

Do you think these rough genre definitions could culturally shift at all (depending on audience, marketing etc)? Other than the gradual shift from Crime to Horror as the genre where the nasty stabbings tend to happen, I would also say there has been a slow shift over the last 30 years in Science Fi...

Re: Human Centipede II

Great post from streetrw! I hadn't realised just how many (often rhetorical) questions were contained in my angry rant until Richard took the time to answer them all in such calm and precise detail, the classification and censorship of films is, as Richard's post demonstrates, a complex issue that c...

Re: Human Centipede II

Have just signed the petition and urge others to do so too. I think it is time the subjective rulings of the BBFC were properly challenged.

Thanks to sherbetbizarre for the links.

Re: Human Centipede II

Words cannot demonstrate my indignant contempt and resentment for the BBFC. Is there any evidence to support their flippantly dismissive arguement? Have dead amateur centipede experiments been discovered abandonned in ditches all across mainland Europe? Is there any concrete evidence at all for any...

Re: The Rough Guide to FrightFest

Much respect to anybody who brings and passes round a hip flask, thermos flasks not so much. I think anybody who brings a picnic instead of cocktails, has misjudged the spirit of the occasion, but having said that, for some perverse reason, I would be secretly impressed by anyone I saw eating a bowl...
