Would have done better if it hadn't been done in 3D.

yesterdays viewings.

Lost in translation- fantastic film great performances from Bill Murray and Scarlett Johansson

Ghosthouse- awful acting but surprisingly creepy and atmospheric

vampyres daughters of Dracula- still unsure of this movie

Delta Force- what can i say about this amazing film that's not been said already, its never going to win any awards but who cares when its so fun, this film has it all mullets, car chases, motorbikes that fire rockets, lee Marvin, George Kennedy, political incorrectness, explosions and did i say mullets?

You'll never be able to hear Scarborough Fair and keep a straight face again


Yesterday I started my Kevin Smith-O-Rama and feel I may have made it too easy since I watched Clerks and Mallrats in 1 day so there are only 8 films left, I'll be doing Chasing Amy and Dogma later today which I'm looking forward to as these are his 2 best films

I watched Mallrats not very long ago when it was on TV, I reviewed it on Letterboxd and gave it 2.5/5 I must have been having a bad day because it's clearly a 4 star film I've seen it so many times since it came out I know all the words - Clerks too, I forgot just how easy it is to watch that film, although you do sit there hating Dante for most of it and rooting for Randal I find it too cute that Jason Mewes is clearly trying VERY hard to remember his lines too.

I'm glad you weren't disappointed and our recommendations proved to be accurate. It's a film which stands up to repeated viewings really well and shows Bill Murray is really funny when he's playing a character with deadpan delivery.

Hitchcock: not as interesting as The Girl which you can't help but compare it to, the latter of which has a better story regardless of truth It's enjoyable enough but very light and throwaway with not much to say. Wasn't keen on the inference that the intensity of the shower scene filming was due to Hitch's marriage frustrations which seemed like dramatic invention and negates the role that the editing of the sequence plays.

Blood and Black Lace: I'm a huge gialli fan and have seen most of, if not all, the relevant works of Argento, Fulci, Lenzi, Martino etc but I've only seen a handful of Bava's films. I know. The shame, the shame. I really enjoyed this; it was pretty by-the-numbers as far as these things go but looked beautiful and proves Bava as a true master of the genre with an incredible eye for filmmaking. Really stylish.

I adore Blood & Black Lace. Such a special film. Its like some trashy crime paperback come to life for me and you really get a sense that Bava was doing something so daring for it's time. Yet no matter how mean-spirited things get, he never takes it too seriously and finishes with a signature almost poetic ending.

That's so true You could pick any frame from the film and stick it on one of those yellow paperback covers . . .

Yeah, I wish it had been one of the first gialli I'd seen to be honest, for context if nothing else.
