Super size me

September 15th, 2004

For our weekly visit to the flicks we decided a hard-hitting dose of reality would be just the ticket as the last ebbs of summer trickle away down the MK Xscape wind tunnel. Super size me is a documentary film in the same genre as Michael Moore’s Bowling for Columbine. Yet the guy presenting this […]

The Passion of The Christ

March 31st, 2004

Having grown up a Catholic I must admit that The Passion of The Chirst didn’t exactly shock me. Years of church and R.E. lessons had nicely put all of those hideous images in my mind anyway. However, I don’t remember the evil demons and satanic babies in any of the stuff I read. I do […]

Starsky & Hutch review

March 24th, 2004

Shay Do it. Doo it. Guy So funny I’d see it again. Shay Dooo it. Guy Nah, more of a “Do it.” Less ‘o’s and a full stop. Definitely a full stop. Otherwise it sounds too ren and stimpy. Shay I’d say it’s like when the American’s pronounce due, due it! Guy Which is phonetically […]

Rude Awakening

February 23rd, 2004

Rude Awakening – A very funny stoner movie about tw hippies who live in the jungle for twenty years and re-emerge into the late 80s to find that the world has become a capitalist’s dream. Cheech Marin stars and is hugely enjoyable having halucinations of a talking fish. I haven’t seen this film since I […]

Confessions of a Dangeroud Mind

February 18th, 2004

Last night’s DVD and Spanish Beer drunk through slices of Lime session has left me with a lethargy like none I’ve never experienced before. At least not whilst at work anyway. It’s strange that yesterday I was fretting over the masses of projects I’m toying with at the moment yet today I can completely wipe […]

Big Fish review

February 4th, 2004

Being of rock star stock I don’t usually read reviews. Alas I was thoroughly bored yesterday so I took a trip to Film Guardian and read both the Guardian and Observer reviews of Big Fish. Both were fairly despondent of Tim Burton’s (Edward Scissorhands) latest piece. So I went to the MK Cineworld Multiplex with […]

Battlestar Galactica / Terrahawks DVDs

January 16th, 2004

Face/Starbuck aka Dirk Benedict has been heavily promoting himself over the last week. This has brought to my attention this brilliant DVD: Battlestar Galactica – Special Edition which I’ve added to my wish list along with these Terrahawks DVDs.


November 21st, 2003

The bizarre black and white art house flick Eraserhead sees director David Lynch enter Cronenburg territory – all weird gooeyness and prosthetics with a totally weird atmosphere. The wooden characters are typical of Lynch’s films. The lead character (Henry Spencer played by Jack Nance) is a man with hair that looks as though it’s been […]

Matrix Revolutions

November 10th, 2003

Well I thoroughly enjoyed it. Shay hated it. My thoughts: Well written, well directed and excellent battle scenes. Lot’s to figure out and disect. Yes the original stands up on its own and perhaps loses something for having two sequels but what fine rides those sequels are. The meaning of the girl?: The Tradition of […]

The films of David Lynch

October 24th, 2003

Shay and I continued our season of watching weird David Lynch films by settling down to the vertible audio/visual feast that is “Lost Highway“. This had to be the weirdest of the bunch so far. Having already sat through Blue Velvet and Mulholland Drive we were prepared for the freakiness of Lynch’s direction. Yet this […]
