Pre-CG days it's not hard to imagine how hard this film must have been for her to film and yet it's stronger than any modern day equivalent would put out. The film (though released earlier) is incredibly close to Little Mermaid in many places too whilst Candy is somewhat wasted.
    Uncut? Or the hair-arse version?

    I love reading all your movie reviews. It's much more fun than reading Leonard Maltin books. The great unifier and it's really nice to see what floats everyone's boats.

    Nothing of relevance here, just a warm fuzzy.

    Watched a film called SNOWPIERCER, tonite. Taped off Film4 last week.

    Apparently, it's quite a big thang, now, Netflix series n' all. I know nothing of that. I just taped it 'cos the plotline sounded cool when I clicked on it in the listings.

    But, whatever. Did I like it? Especially with it being pretty damn long, n' all???? (I did not know this before viewing).

    It was pretty cool. I was expecting a linearity to the setting, given it's all set on a massively long train but it really keeps your attention as they all head to the front of the train.

    It was...very different. Did I LIKE it???...yeh.

    Was it one of the best films I've ever seen and would I wanna watch it again?

    Nah.

    It was...OK. Priddy good. Priddy, priddy good...





    ...but NAH. Not again.

    Can't even understand how this would get a series, tbh???????!!!!!!!

    It's a ****ing TRAIN!!!

    It's such a linear, tubular setting, there's not much scope for dimension. And do we really need LORE for this???!!!

    Also, can't believe I forgot it but I also watched a movie called BAD MATCH, the night before the aforementioned one.

    The Horror Channel. A stalker movie.

    Actually, quite deece. I was expecting it to be ultrashide but the first hour or so is pretty absorbing, quite a good little study of present day dating.

    Sadly, runs out of steam after about 70mins and becomes your typical violent, slashery thang, loses its sparkle and intrigue, it does.

    Rating? A good 6.77/10, a noble failure but one of the better low-budget horrors on THC at the mo!

    The Princess Bride
    Attracting the ire of many, I haven't seen this since I was little but seeing it now it's decent but still leaves me curious as to the cult it has. Whilst it mixes adventure, comedy, fantasy etc genres together it's very light doses of each never really fully committing to any of them so there's a light and somewhat unique air about it but nothing that memorable either.

    For me, I think it lies in a few things.

    It's utterly, utterly charming.

    It feels like a Disney-style fairytale but in live-action, which is funny considering Disney seem incapable of doing that outside of parody.

    It's kinda low-budget for a fantasy movie, but it succeeds in spite of that.

    Also it's very, very quotable. I think I know the entire film, start to finish. It's like Galaxy Quest in that regard.

    I think in terms of comedically the Billy Crystal section didn't land with me but I was definitely caught immediately when Cook declared 'Mawwaige!'

    Alias Nick Beal - Bit of a noir/supernatural mash-up from 1949 about a desperate DA who gets an offer from a stranger. It's a set up that wouldn't be out of place in an ep of The Twilight Zone. Enjoyable and atmospheric ... good matinee material.

    Soul - Loved this. Just a beautiful set-up with depth and heart and loads of great moments, one after another. It's a subtle Pixar film but a quality one. Just the tonic I hoped it might be.
