QUATERMASS AND THE PIT. The more I watch this film the more I love it. Looks great on Blu-ray by the way.

Vampix 23rd September 2012 10:57 PM

Watched The Avengers, a great flick, thoroughly enjoyed it! Mark Ruffalo as The Hulk was my fave character, closely followed by Robert Downey Jr. as Iron Man.Scarlett Johansson is extremely easy on the eye too! :nod:

Rik.

This site may be of use to you. Kids-In-Mind: Movie ratings & parents' reviews that actually work

It goes into detail for parents, pointing out all scenes of sex, violence, language and the general tone of a film.

I quite like the site, its not censorship just information.

And seeing as you unintentionally mentioned Child's Play, Dylan(my eldest) is terrified of Chucky, I'm not sure where he's seen him before(I don't own any of them or have watched the films in his company), but every time we go into CEX he won't go anywhere near the B & C sections because they have Chucky films on display! He even had a nightmare about him the other week after a visit to said shop.

I find Balamory terrifying though! :eek:

My 5 year old son is terrified of Jason from the F13 films. To be fair to him, my actual name is Jason and I was chasing him round the front room, with the F13 box set held up to my face, whispering Kill Kill Kill.

James Morton 24th September 2012 08:33 AM

overall the BBFC and their ratings system is a guide
some film which is violent to an extent is given a 18 cert
yet another film with the same scenes of violence etc is a 15
go figure

i know of a moderator on another site (Canadian i think) lets his young son watch BIG TROUBLE IN LITTLE IN LITTLE CHINA and CHILD'S PLAY 3 among aothers which are 15 rated over here

depends......

Scream 4 thought the films was terrible pure rubbish just didn't like it,
The way some of the scenes are acted out did my head in eg,
Type of scene where sherIff shows up at the book signing and everyone shuffling about following him, just way it's acted out does my head , if that makes sense I know what I mean in my head but isn't so easy trying to explain it,

Scream 4 should get a re-edited director's cut imho as much was left on the cutting room floor and the film's editing feels rushed.

just been on the DreadCentral site and it tells you the scenes which were longer/extended and cut out of the film
why do....oh hang on its all about money with the Yanks!
its really stupid, greedy and ignorant of the company not to release an uncut SCREAM 4

The Weinsteins still didn't release an uncut dvd of the first SCREAM film
the UK R2 is non anamorphic and cut off course as R1


US companies esp just have money on their minds and nothing else
bastards

gag 24th September 2012 09:13 AM

According to moviecencorship it's mainly just dialogue that's cut

Scream 4 (Comparison: Theatrical Version - UK Version / Pay-per-View Cut) - Movie-Censorship.com

Why ? Don't get idea of cutting and adding deleting etc odd word here and there especially sometimes if it isn't swearing or offensive words,

Ps yes the editing was bad in the barn scene where he stabs Gale he didn't even touch here and it was very noticeable,
Well more of hitting at the side with a joke knife that slides in, either way he didn't touch / stab her

bdc 24th September 2012 09:52 AM

The PPV version is an interesting variation and shows the movie was not really "completed" when it was released in theaters.

The footage I mentioned are some of the "deleted scenes" which were not included in any version but did pop up as extras on some releases.

Like this one:

Scream 4 Deleted Scene: Aftermath - YouTube

Anyway,personally I would be interested in a new director's cut... ;)

gag 24th September 2012 10:05 AM

Further more tho correct me if I wrong,
But the opening scene is stab 6 so when later on in the film 1hr 12 when they are all Back at the house and he puts stab 7 on then why are they watching stab 6 the opening scenes, anyone else notice this

bdc 24th September 2012 10:16 AM

Didn't notice that I think but maybe it's another example of the film's production being rushed... ;)

It has been a while since I've seen it but is it not because each Stab film starts off with people watching the opening scene from the previous Stab film like at the beginning of the Scream 4? So the film Stab 7 starts off with the opening of Stab 6

I thought it was going to be excellent from all the praise I'd read heaped on it, I'd avoided any reviews so that the "twist" wouldn't be known to me, then guessed it straight off from the very first image in the title sequence!

Okay, to be fair to the film at 45 years old, not being a fanboy and having seen naked breasts in the flesh, I'm not perhaps it's target audience. But to me, it felt tired and cynical in a lazy post modern way.

No the actual opening scene is stab 6 it end with the stab 6 on the tv credits then 2 women are argueing cos 1 hated it one gets killed then then stab 7 ends,
Later in the film he says let's watch stab 7 and it shows the very actual beginning which is stab 6,

It's one of the best films I've seen this year – great fun and with an interesting debate about horror films and viewership.

There's no twist in Cabin in the Woods! It's all laid out in front of you at the start. Thats the reason it fails as a straight-up scary horror film; you know more than the characters for most of the film. Unless you mean the appeasement stuff which isn't significant enough to be labelled a twist anyway really.


It's a really fantastic film and I can't wait to see it again

SShaw 24th September 2012 06:05 PM

Just finished watching Wes Andersons Moonrise Kingdom at the local Programmkino, it you are a fan of his earlier work then this is fabulous, if not then shame on you.

My 5c on Cabin in the Woods. Awful, cliche ridden nonsense that has nothing new to say about the genre and shares similar plot elements to later Buffy episodes. I know I am in a very small minority, but I am in good company. Chris Fowlers review on his blog is spot on.

Re:View – ‘Cabin In The Woods’ « Christopher Fowler's Blog

Hmmm, I have to disagree as I thought Cabin in the woods was solid entertainment. Not at all scary but a lot more interesting than I went in expecting and pretty funny in places as well. Chris fowlers review was ok until he started raving about the nines, that movie was utter crap.

Rik 24th September 2012 07:56 PM

It was on Keiarts recommendation that I ordered CITW, it arrived on Blu this morning and was going to be my choice of film for tonight, that is until I found out it's faulty so I now have to wait for a replacement, gutted

Re:View – ‘Cabin In The Woods’ « Christopher Fowler's Blog

that was the point, it was a sort of piss take of all horror movies that came before it, the eerie basement, the blonde girl, the jock, the stoner, THE CABIN IN THE WOODS, it toke those cliches and played on them, like the blonde hair dye turns the girl into bimbo, the alcohol turns Thor, who is a philosophy major into the dumb jock. It takes the piss out of the entire genre and makes an entertaining, original film that i thought was utterly fantastic. Tucker and Dale did the same thing, although that should have got way more coverage than it did.

THE RAID. Bloody hell, this is impressive stuff and the best action film I've seen since John Woo's glory days of "The Killer", "A Better Tomorrow 2" and "Hard Boiled".

Baseball Fury 25th September 2012 07:55 AM

I thought The Nines was great!

Anyway, I watched Looper last night. Bugger me. One of the best films, if not the best film, I've seen this year. Sci-fi without the sillyness. In another director's hands, it could have been another Surrogates, but instead Rian Johnson makes a little masterpiece.

Black Moon Rising

Demoncrat 25th September 2012 04:29 PM

Vampyres (see review thread). me like film.

Curse of the Crimson Altar. Enjoyed it more this time, though that may have had something to do with the Merlot i'd embibed cough cough, or indeed glug glug;)

SShaw 26th September 2012 08:25 PM

Aggression Scale - after being underwhelmed by Under the Bed I had decided to give this a miss, but the largely positive comments here made me rethink. I am glad I did, because once it gets going it turns out to be a great revenge flick. Recommended.

My copy of the Raid turned up this evening, but I will save it for the weekend. As was commented a few posts ago this is one of the best action films for a considerable time. I would probably agree that you have to go back as far as Woo's Hardboiled for a better action film - more than 20 years (Hardboiled happens to be the first film I went to see after I started University in London).

Rik 27th September 2012 02:29 PM

Deranged(1974)- The film by Alan Ormsby and Jeff Gillen, starring Roberts Blossom with FX created my the master himself, Tom Savini. It is the story of Ezra Cobb(Blossom) who after the death of his beloved, yet overpowering mother carries out many bizarre crimes such as grave robbing, stealing corpses from graves and eventually, murder. It is loosely based on real life serial killer Ed Gein and I must say that it is a fairly accurate account of his crimes(not quite as accurate as the eponymous Ed Gein film starring Steve Railsback) and a very enjoyable film too.
I first read about this film as a 12 year old boy whilst reading the August 1991 issue of The Dark Side magazine, which was kind of a TCM special and had a feature on Gein inside. Ever since then my interest in serial killers, particularly Ed Gein, grew and I now have numerous books on the subject. I can't believe it's taken me 21 years to finally see this film(thanks to a drunken bid on ebay).
Being the German 30th Anniversary Edition, it is the full uncut version which includes the infamous eyeball and brain scooping scene missing from MGM's double bill with Motel Hell and also features a behind the scenes doc with Savini commentary, a couple of pieces on Gein and various trailers. Also included is a 24 page booklet full of stills but with German text only unfortunately.

Roberts Blossom - From Deranged to Home Alone. Wonderful stuff, a classic horror and an all time favourite. Not to mention Escape from Alcatraz. :clap:
