Things I am Interested In

I like movies. I don't go to many, because most are drivel.

However, there have been a few films that I have enjoyed and will keep giving me faith in celluloid as an artistic medium. Films that fall into this group include

  • Bladerunner
  • Alien, Aliens, Alien3
  • anything by Peter Jackson (Bad Taste, Braindead/Dead Alive, Heavenly Creatures, Lord of the Rings)
  • stuff by Terry Gilliam (Brazil, Baron Munchausen, 12 Monkeys)
  • films by Peter Greenaway (The Cook The Thief His Wife and Her Lover, The Pillow Book, Prospero's Books, Secrets and Lies)
  • Betty Blue
  • The Usual Suspects

I should probably state at this point that I own many of the above films on DVD. The complete list of my DVD collection can be found here.

For the sake of completeness, I also have the following NTSC VHS videos:

  • Nine Inch Nails (music videos and documentary tour footage)
  • Power Puff Girls vol 1: Bubblevicious
  • Power Puff Girls vol 2: Monkey See, Doggie Do

January 11, 2008 20:00

January 04, 2008 22:00

Sweeny Todd

Entertaining - whodathunk Johnny Depp could sing.

January 03, 2008 20:00


A very entertaining and funny tale of teen pregnancy and adoption. Several great performances.

Spiderman 3

[VOD] Rather disappointing, really. Too many stories going on, that didn't really work well together.

November 24, 2007 19:30


Bio-pic of Ian Curtis. Very well made, and very moving. The actors perform all the Joy Division songs themselves, and make for decent-enough likenesses of the people they are portraying.

November 05, 2007 22:00

1408 (Directors Cut)

[VOD] A recent Stephen King horror flick with Juhn Cusack and Samuel L Jackson. Some good effects, but fairly predictable.

June 22, 2007 23:00

The Last Castle

[TV] An interesting movie set in a military prison.

Hot Fuzz

Funniest movie I've seen in ages. Absolutely fucking brilliant. I will own this.

June 15, 2007 20:00

Pirates of the Carribean 3

June 10, 2007 23:30

Final Desination 2

[TV] Rather silly really

June 09, 2007 20:00

Starship Troopers

[VOD] Silly science fiction action film based loosely on the Heinlein novel of the same name. Largely fluff, but entertaining enough, and nifty special effects.

April 08, 2007 20:30


Fan-fucking-tastic. Awesome. Go see it.

March 09, 2007 22:15


Visually amazing adaptation of Frank Miller's graphic novel about the Battle of Thermopylae. The biggest weak point - the comic book-style dialogue remains. Still, a great film.

January 19, 2007 19:30

Pan's Labyrinth

Awesome. Very pretty and very brutal.

January 07, 2007 21:30

Howl's Moving Castle
