They feel like completely different films. The colour version of The Mist feels very contemporary whereas the black-and-white version feels more like a film from the 1950s, an Invasion of the Body Snatchers-type paranoid thriller.

Absolutely - the BW version is much more atmospheric

The Wicker Tree (2011)

DCI Foyle - "Samantha Stewart, why are you in this terrible movie?... and, er, why are you, um, naked most of the time?"

I can't believe i liked this first time round. It's genuinely quite poor, as if someone who had no notion of what the 1973 horror classic was actually like was given a sketchy outline to make a sequel. It all feels so wrong and ill thought out.

The fact that Honeysuckle Weeks, who i'm currently enjoying in Foyle's War, is in it is the film's only slight saving grace. That and the raven obviously.

It's a great light comedy film.

Well, that's what I saw anyhow

Kirk , Spock and Bones are on Holiday, when they are called back too the enterprise , someone has captured the ambassadors a human, Klingon and Romulan on the so called planet of galactic peace, this some one turns out too be Spocks half brother Sybok, whom could well be nuts as he is on a mission too find god, as well as a Looney Vulcan Kirk has to contend with a Klingon Captian . It's has many problems but it's enjoyable in its way, probably the best thing is the dynamic between Spock, Kirk and Bones. Sean Connery was approached for the role of Sybok,but luckily he went too play Indys farther this year. It was supposed to be a lot grander but the budget wasn't big enough for supposedly what Shatner had in mind.





My second favourite star trek, which we see the original crew together for one last adventure . The Kilingons closest moon explodes, which leads too the Klingon empire seeking help from the federation as they empire will be dead in 50 years, but treachery is afoot from both sides.

This follows the Chernobyl disaster and the fall of the Soviet Union. Always getting a little tear in my eye , when the cast sign , there names at the end.

Superman. 1978.

I'm sure we all know how the story goes,

Seeing the director's cut was like a big boner, seeing the 3 hour tv version, major chubby, but the 4k UHD ,


For those that were able to see it at the cinema back in the day now I know how you felt, this was amazing to see and hear.

House Of Dark Shadows (1970, Dan Curtis)

Whilst I always preferred the "sequel" Night Of Dark Shadows, I felt I would give this one more go.
When an estranged relative returns to the family domicile, the Collins' find they have a cuckoo in the nest.
A tad more talky than the remake, belieing the parent material tbh, this is really just as flat as I half remembered, there's no tension, regardless of how many closeups you shove into it Dan, sorry. Ho hum.

The Doll Of Satan. 1969.

Eilzabeth has just inherited a castle from her Late Uncle, she is persuaded to sell it and decides to hang on to it but strange things begin to happen.

This was a blind watch for me and had no idea what I was going into, typical giallo, eccentric Uncle, distant relative and a house in the middle of nowhere...what can go wrong? Thing I have learned is if you are offered a creepy place don't stay the night, run fast run far. I don't get the jist of this one except someone doing a bit of chemistry in the basement and a criminal on the loose, will say this Erna Schurer was a beautiful lady, and Roland Carey is able to get help from a German Shepherd dog. Re-watch will be due again.
