Reports are that Mathew Vaughn is the new Star Wars director.
Dolan's Cadillac - based on a fairly decent Stephen King short story and starring Christian Slater as Dolan. Updated to include things like computers and cell phones - so not strictly as written, so if absolute accuracy is a thing for you, maybe not up your alley - I found it woeful but watchable. Lol - woefully watchable. But then, I have a high tolerance for crap TV. Came off like a TV movie, which for all I know it could have been. 4/10
Watched The Campaign today. It was alright. Galifianakis is the true highlight here. A lot of unnecessary profanity in it, I thought. It had it's moments. Nice to see they dug up Dylan McDermott for a movie. Don't think I've seen him in an actual movie since some bad guys put a plastic bag over his head in that Clint Eastwood movie........whatchamacallit? I don't know.....
The Campaign - 6.5/10
The Devil Inside. I've had better watery shits.
Looking forward to catching this at some point. Dark humour, somewhat dry, is always a tick, tick, in my book. And it's from the long hotly tipped writer/directer Ben Wheatley, and executively produced by Edgar Wright. Yeah, I'll need to see this.
Caught up on a few films:
Sinister: Not a bad film at all, better than most of the horror dross you get these days. It took me a good 52 minutes into the film to work it out, longer than most of these films take to suss out. 2/5
Men in Black 3: It is what it is, pretty fun mindless couple of hours. 1.5/5
The Amazing Spiderman: I prefer this version of Peter Parker's alter ego to Maguire's but the Lizard was pretty awful.2.5/5
Resident Evil Retribution: I don't know which way round the bad influence went, the films to the games or the games to the films. I quite enjoyed the first two (for my sins) but they've given up now. 0.5/5
I don't know why but I've become addicted to watching the low rent films on the SyFy and Horror channels, that they show through the night.
Sharktopus, Pterodactyl, Supergator, Triassic Attack... How could you go wrong? Admittedly, I did like the Dinocro vs. Supergator and Komodo vs. Cobra films, but for ALL the wrong reasons.
Anyone catch Prometheus? Just watched it and while the film isn't what the Alien franchise delivered back when they started, the film is one of the better Prequels I have seen. It answered many of the questions I had from the original series, which is what a prequel is supposed to do, isn’t it? If you have seen it, what did you think?
