New stuff watched and rated:

Indiana Jones and The Kingdom of The Crystal Skull - Spielberg and Lucas shouldn't have dug up this. A strange meld of old and new bound to not really please anyone.
The Happening - An intriguing premise let down by miscasting and bad dialogue but still of interest.
3 Dev Adam - Hilarious laugh riot
Screams of a Winter Night - Odd, very low budget, atmospheric, a bit slow with moments of interest but hampered by the Dutch VHS print I watched being too dark
Prophecies of Nostradamus - Excellent, this really needs to be on DVD
Iguana with the Tongue of Fire - Terrible, like a cheap Edgar Wallace adaptation with bad effects
My Brother Has Bad Dreams - Very slow and boring, rarity does not a good film make
Darktown Strutters - Bizarre seventies oddity, too frothy for my taste
10,000 B.C. - Awful, insulting, ridiculous cave-man rip-off of Apocalypto
Coonskin - Social commentary/exploitation that could never get made today, not bad but overbearing at times
The Protector - Crappy 80s Jackie Chan vehicle
What Have They Done To Your Daughters - After having watched too many disappointing giallo this was an unexpected treat, very good and recommended

Got the Dutch Blu-ray of David Fincher's ZODIAC yesterday ? skimmed through the disc and have to say, it's hands down the best transfer I have seen to date ? absolutely gobsmacking and proof enough that the format is a significant step up from standard def DVDs.

Amsterdamned is a great film, very well made with lots of nice touches and interesting ideas. I saw it on TV years ago and it's always stayed with me. You should enjoy it.

Giallos I have seen recently and not been too bothered about:
Iguana With The Tongue Of Fire
Four Flies On Grey Velvet
The Pyjama Girl Case
My Dear Killer
Cold Eyes Of Fear
The Fifth Cord
The Night Evelyn Came Out Of The Grave
Strip Nude For Your Killer
Luciano Ercoli Box Set
The Strange Vice Of Mrs Wardh
Forbidden Photos Of A Lady Above Suspicion
The House With Laughing Windows
Zeder

For balance, I HAVE liked recently: What Have They Done To Your Daughters; Your Vice Is A Locked Room And Only I Have The Key; Lizard In A Woman's Skin; All The Colours Of The Dark; The Killer Must Kill Again; Torso

I'm very fickle. Some films can seem almost identical but I may like one but not another. I can't explain it other than it's just the gut reaction I have whilst watching.

Argh I'm the same, I'd say I'm as fickle as they come at times.

I have a couple of those titles sitting in my watch pile... should I be concerned?

Nah, to each their own. If you enjoy any I haven't then at least it's pleased someone
