American Pie

A group of friends make a pact to lose their virginities at Prom before they leave High School.

The film which launched the Gross Out Teen Movie genre, this to me is an absolute classic, even though there are gross out moments they are very funny and considering how wrong filming a woman without her knowledge is, it is funny and Jim is on the receiving end of the gag.

What I like most about this is that it's a well acted film and you actually care about the main characters (And this is the same throughout the theatrical releases) The script is also very good and that is a crucial aspect for this series.

So many iconic scenes like:

The opening scene where Jim is caught by his parents while watching a Porno

Stiffler with the Pale Ale

The Internet Scene

The awkward talks that Jim's Dad (Played brilliantly by Eugene Levy) and Jim have that turn cringe worthy embarrassing.

Michelle (Alison Hannigan) suddenly turns from Band Camp Geek to Nympho (That one time at Band Camp)

The Pie scene (Who actually thinks of that)

A very funny which is also sweet and full of heart, The 4 Theatrical Films make this my favorite film series.

This is one film that I would loved to have seen in a packed out Cinema screen.

The first 3 then the reunion are classed as the proper American pie films, the other 4 after the 3rd arenít classed as true sequels more just cashing in on the franchise.

But the original and the reunion are very funny and highly entertaining.

Ps there another Spin off due out this year Called girls rule.

City of Fear (1958)

Fast-paced Noir about a jailbreak & a con who thinks he's got a brick of pure heroin, turns out it's a dangerous chemical compound. Can the cops get to him before the worst happens?

7/10

D.O.A.

Brilliant high concept noir about a man who is poisoned & has to find out who did it & why before he dies. Amazing!

9/10

First Love (Takashi Miike)

A right royal palaver this one. A boxer gets involved in a dastardly scheme by accident. Nowt really original, just nicely put together. Some hilarity and some of the old ultraviolence, he can make these in his sleep etc. Not that it bored, twas rather enjoyable tbh. Recommended? Yes, methinks so.

Watching Code Red's blu of Jungle Holocaust. The print is stunning, but the commentary (by Ian Jane & Horace Cordier) is boarderline unlistenable. Sounds like they are doing it over an internet call & the sound keeps screeching. Got the sound turned up to 65 as it's so low, but really wanted to hear this commentary (so far it consists of listing people's filmographies & talking about the plane)

He's Out There (2018)

Yvonne Strahovski takes her two young daughters to a secluded lake house and ends up in a fight for survival against a deranged killer.

He's Out There is a tasty little film for the most part with a couple of well constructed shocks towards the finale and a nice build up of tension and intrigue. What lets it down is the lack of characters. There are only six in total throughout so when three of these are the heroine and her daughters you know you aren't in for a slash-tastic Friday the 13th style thrill ride and it's this thought that means even at 85 minutes it feels slightly too long.

Strahovski is a credible heroine and the two girls are better than most kids in horror films ie- not making you want to gouge out your eyes and slice your ears off, and it's testament to the three that despite what i said in the previous paragraph you stick with the film until the rewarding final third when the cool looking madman makes his entrance.
