Quick Movie Review – Give Em Hell Malone

Give Em Hell Malone

Frankie the Crooner: Suck my Sinatra.

It’s been a long time since I’ve cringed so consistently at a film.  It’s like someone watched the Usual Suspects, read a bit about the noir genre, and then got a shitload of money from their uncle to finish their first draft script.

1.5/10


Friday Bowie is the Sovereign

I guess maybe that’s a spoiler.  Deal with it.


Perhaps the best thing


Friday Bowie has a bit of sadness

Let’s all pour one out for the late Trevor Bolder, formerly of the Spiders from Mars.


Quick Movie Review – Dredd

Dredd

Judge Dredd: Negotiation’s over. Sentence is death.

An almost bafflingly pretty and well crafted film given the source material.  The story is simple, and it reaches exactly the conclusion you expect, but its a fun ride, and a very stylish flick.

7.5/10


Saturday Glam Rock isn’t here to stay

Is it bad that I find Gary Glitter really creepy?


Quick Movie Review – My Neighbor Totoro

My Neighbor Totoro

Tatsuo Kusakabe: Trees and people used to be good friends. I saw that tree and decided to buy the house.

A movie that has the capability of being imaginative, cute, and fun when it sets out to be.  The real issue, and perhaps this is a cultural difference, is that those moments were too few and far between, and the rest of the plot was far too sparse to hold it together.

5.5/10
