Best in Show 2000 23 May 20 Rated 6
Amusing. Doesn't live up to its pedigree though (I'll get my coat).
Panther Squad 1984 19 May 20 Rated 2
I'm always up for a cheesy B-Movie but this wooden and randomly edited production is difficult to watch until the end. It's probably the only movie with an anti-space-pollution terrorist organisation based out of a yacht in Ostend harbour though.
Foxes 1980 17 May 20 Rated 4
Interesting but muddled peek into a specific time and place.
The Edge 1997 17 May 20 Rated 6
Anthony Hopkins pulls off the action hero role surprisingly well in this hackneyed survival story. Not very memorable, but an entertaining watch.
State and Main 2000 16 May 20 Rated 8
Charming little movie, fantastic cast, great dialogue.
The Laundromat 2019 16 May 20 Rated 5
Should have had me raging at the system, instead I was just a little depressed. The ideas are in there but it's all a little too scattershot.
Spartan 2004 15 May 20 Rated 6
Pretty generic plot that's well executed. Could be better, could be much worse.
Local Hero 1983 13 May 20 Re-watched Rated 9
Hadn't watched this in years. This film is like a warm hug.
Spaceship Earth 2020 10 May 20 Rated 7
The story of the group leading up to the Biosphere2 chapter was more interesting and impressive than the actual isolation period the film is centered on. It's inspiring and bizarre in equal measures. A familiar villain showing up was quite a surprise though.
Straight to Hell 1987 9 May 20 Rated 6
An oddball punk spaghetti western by Alex Cox. That should say enough. It's got no plot, a ragtag rock cast that includes Courtney Love, Joe Strummer, the Pogues and Grace Jones, and a fixation on coffee. It's really quite bad but it's a landmark in its own strange way.
