The Dirty Dozen. Lee Marvin is a Major in WWII rather reluctantly tasked with assembling a team of convicted criminal soldiers - all of whom are facing either the death penalty or life in prison - for a near-suicidal mission to assassinate scores of high-ranking Nazi officials at a French chateau. An excellent cast including Charles Bronson, Donald Sutherland, Ernest Borgnine and Telly Savalas co-star in this late 60s action-thriller that is probably the best 60s film I've seen thus far. It's long (2 and a half hours, give or take) but never drags and kept my attention throughout. Great cast, great story, great climax. Great movie! Smile

Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince.

That was extremely good. Probably the best HP movie post Goblet of Fire. There were genuinely funny and sweet moments that I found to be very welcome considering how dark and foreboding the rest of it was. Dumbledore's death is so well handled and I thought the main cast, especially Alan Rickman, did an absolutely superb job with the material.

I think Luna Lovegood is the best character Harry Potter character ever Big Grin

Bad Times at the El Royale. A group of strangers gather at a sleazy motel in the middle of a thunderstorm - but none of them are exactly who they seem to be. Jeff Bridges leads the cast in this 60s set ensemble thriller that plays like a classier, less irritating version of The Hateful Eight.

I saw the new Halloween at the cinema today. I'm afraid I wasn't impressed. It wasn't terrible, but it was nowhere near as good as the hype, and while it's better than some of the sequels I found it markedly inferior to others (2, 4 and H20), all of which it retcons. The retconning of the Laurie/Michael sibling relationship also strikes me as anal fanboyism rather than particularly necessary and actually rather undermines them as nemeses IMO. I didn't think Curtis was as good in this as she was in H20, which also had a more rather more believable version of Laurie. The last act was also surprisingly weak, with the eventual confrontation between Laurie and Michael nowhere near as epic or satisfying as in H20 IMO. Like Terminator Genisys, this is basically cinematic fan-fiction. Unlike Genisys, I was kind of bummed out by this.

Actor James Karen has died at the age of 94. Karen is probably best known to horror movie fans as the manager of the medical warehouse in cult classic 80s comedy horror Return of the Living Dead and the douchebag who "only moved the headstones!" in Poltergeist.

RIP.

Watched Blood Fest tonight instead of the castrated Bubble from Ab Fab.

It stars Robbie Kay, best known as the evil Peter Pan from Once Upon A Time (whose performance I was a bit of a fan of to put it mildly LOL.)

Here he is a good guy however, though he's just as good as always.

Its an alright film. Kind of a bit of Scream/Fright Night type of a thing of fans of horror movies being made to fight the types of monsters/villains they see in their favourite films.

Its not a classic or anything, Kay could do better, but its a good enough horror flick and I'm glad I watched it instead of what sounded like another after school lecture.

Overlord. A group of young American soldiers land behind enemy lines on D-Day, only to find the Nazis even Naztier than they thought and engaged in horrific experiments to create supersoldiers. An odd mix of World War II thrills and (eventually) horror, Overlord is an entertaining enough shaggy dog story.

Turbulence. Ray Liotta is a serial killer being transported by the FBI via passenger plane when a commotion involving another criminal breaks out, and he gets loose, with the situation rapidly getting out of control... Lauren Holly, Hector Elizondo and Brendan Gleeson co-star in this utterly ludicrous late 90s thriller/disaster flick that I do not recall ever having seen before. This film is so dumb, and Ray Liotta's performance so OTT (to the point it's impossible not to think he was just actually actively taking the naff), yet with its Christmas and late 90s nostalgia ambience, I thoroughly enjoyed it in all its glorious silliness. LOL

Funny Farm. A New York sports journalist and his wife decide to pack it in and start a new life in a small country town in a bid to get out of the rat race and have a simpler life... but things don't go entirely according to plan. Chevy Chase stars in this very enjoyable late 80s comedy that is just gently humorous for its first 3/4, but becomes absolutely hilarious in its last act (which is also, entirely coincidentally as I don't recall ever seeing this before or, if I have, it must have been the late 80s and I certainly don't remember, set at Christmas, rather wonderfully). I really enjoyed this. Big Grin

Assassins. Hitman Stallone and psycho competitor Banderas go head to head in this exciting and slick actioner from 1995.

Banderas gives a somewhat unique performance as the absolutely crazy assassin.

Bear Island. A scientific team head to a remote island that once served as HQ to Nazi U-boats during World War II to study climate change, only to find conspiracy and murder somehow linked to the island's dark past awaiting them. This entertaining late 70s thriller based on the Alastair McLean novel is bouyed by the spectacular and atmospheric location as well as an excellent cast including Donald Sutherland, Vanessa Redgrave, Christopher Lee and Lloyd Bridges (though I must confess to having difficulty taking the latter seriously after Airplane and the Hot Shots movies Big Grin ). A solid start to my 2019 movie watching! Cool

Absolute crap. Seagal's worst theatrical outing by a country mile. Under Siege 2 is 10x better.

Close to being the perfect gangster film.

Vice Versa.

Fun little comedy from 1988. Father Judge Reinhold and son Fred Savage swap bodies and struggle to cope with their new lives. The father is forced to go back to school while the son must sort out various problems in adult life, namely his job and the relationship with his girlfriend. This all leads to some hilarious moments of confusion.

8/10
