An aging Assassin is asked to do one more hit before his retirement only to find the company he works for wants him dead.
A fun watch, Mads Mikkelson kinda plays the role of Black Kaiser the same way he played Hannibal Lecter, cold and emotionless. Plenty of action, boobs and bums and Matt Lucas is actually quite fun.

Have decided to work my way through my Twilight Zone box set, just on season 1 disc 2 but wow! Best tv show in history! Always enjoyed it when i was younger but now I'm older, appreciate it a LOT more.

Enough extras to last a year! I advise everyone to go out & buy the box set before it gets deleted.

Solid gold!

Valentine (2001)

Decent slasher from Jamie Blanks with a good cast, (Denise Richards is at her finest here) and a pacy script. However it's a slasher without much in the way of slash as the many kills aren't particularly gory, although there are definitely one or two suspenseful scenes and overall it remains a bit of fun.

A fine soundtrack including Rob Zombie, Linkin Park, Beautiful Creatures, Orgy and Marilyn Manson, always helps maintain interest.

I was actually planning to pick this up recently, I felt like going on a 'millenium' horror trip and watch stuff from Scream onwards until the boom fizzled out, Valentine being towards the end. One I've never seen, mainly due to my aversion to Boreanaz

I watched it a few weeks back on Netflix, first time since it first came out and tbh I was a bit bored in places, not one of my favourite post Scream slashers, I did give it 3 out of 5 on Letterboxd though

Oh I'll check if it's still on Netflix, I've cancelled my account and it ends in a week May as well make the most of it.

You've got a day to watch it. What's the point watching it after Valentines Day?
