Which is odd as I don't recall serial murder and women being wanked with bars of soap made from the fat of their relatives as being part of my childhood.
But you do remember Julian Sands bathing you.

I like Romasanta, its like a Hammer film taken to the next level.

Sands is on my list of people to bathe with along with Dame Judi Dench, then I'd have completed my life long ambition to bathe with all the lead actors from "A Room With A View".

Yeah, I think it was the Hammer like feel of the film that felt so familiar to me. It's a shame that the film is part of the Fantastic Factory releases as the schlockiness of the other 3 films and the dvd boxes might put people off watching what is in fact, a progressive throw back to 60s and 70s period horror.

Aww, i'm jealous. Its a great cast.

I bet when you bathed with Helena Bonham Carter Tim Burton had his toe up the tap and Johnny Depp was playing with a plastic duck.

Oddly enough, I've only ever found HBC attractive as a monkey in "Planet of the Apes".

It was her best look.

Better than her "Sarah Brightman with her finger in a power socket" everyday look anyway.

Don't be fooled by the trailer because this one is 80% typical Stephen Chow mo lei tau comedy and 20% more or less serious horror.
Luckily I knew this before going in...
Not bad if you like the typical Chow humor.

Loved the trailer !!

just watched the blue underground dvd of companeros and absolutely loved it. would go as far to say its the best spaghetti western ive ever seen. also watched high crime and almost human in the last couple of weeks and thought they were nboth fantastic films, you cant go wrong with franco nero or tomas milian.
next up to watch will be the great silence and the cynic, the rat and the fist.

STASH HOUSE.

A young couple get the house of their dreams at a cheap price. The catch? It used to be owned by a mexican drug cartel and the walls are stuffed full of heroin! As the couple leave theyu are stopped by armed thugs (one of whom is played by Dolph lundgren) and must flee back into the house. Incidentally the house is armoured like a big panic room and has a top of the line surveillance system all installed by the previous owners, so the film becomes a cat and mouse siege movie.

Pretty decent, not astonishing but its a great way to pass 90 minutes. It's an after dark movie so fairly low budget, but Dolph makes a great bad guy.

Kurosawa's The Hidden Fortress!

One of his best movies! Had not seen it since college but slowly getting through the BFI Kurosawa sets. The humour is better than most modern comedy, it really is obvious where Lucas got his inspiration for R2 and C3PO.

Had a day off yesterday so watched Phenomena and Police Story.
