Just rembered another one that haunted my memory for years. 

Was about the spirit of a Samurai killing people in the US (seriously) and all I remembered was the final reveal. 

Turned out to be early 80's movie Bloodbeat and it's laughably rubbish. So naturally I bought it on bluray.

6 is brilliant, but 5 has one of my favourite details - the guy playing Tommy in it was a born again Christian, and apparently only felt comfortable doing it when he realised that evil was punished in

Fast forward, surely.

Watched Tomb Raider: The Cradle of Life on iPlayer for the first time in ages. I still think it's a really fun adventure movie, fuck the haters. Nice variety of locations, loads of big daft action, and the shark punching/riding scene is the exact right amount of stupidity I want out of a film based on a game. The new one's pretty boring, despite having Goggins (not as boring as The Hateful Eight, though). I wish Queen Jolie's version would return.

The Spongebob Movie: Sponge On The Run

Great cameos, fantastic soundtrack, very funny. 11/10

Back To The Future trilogy

First one will forever be my favourite film ever, and this time I got to introduce them all to my youngest who, like her sister, absolutely loved them.

We stopped in the middle of 2 so she could write her own timeline and she kept adding to it whilst watching 3 so she could keep track of it all as she was getting confused, until her older sister just said "Simply, Doc from 1955 never leaves 1955 so is Doc A, and the other Doc is from 1985 so he's Doc B" which is a succinct way of remembering.

She then fantasy booked a reboot with Tom Holland as Marty and Jack Black as Doc, showing you who her favourite actors are. Not mad at it to be honest.

Whisper Of The Heart and The Cat Returns

Me and the eldest continue to work our way through the Ghibli films and adored both of these. I think she'd rather be a cat, so the latter especially was excellent to her. Have had to order her a Baron statue for Christmas.

The Burbs

Just a fantastic film, and they both loved it as well. Love Joe Dante and the skulls scared the shit out of the 7yo and she then wouldn't go to sleep, so it worked.

Independence Day 

Still the best example of absolutely silly bollocks film. Love it.

Die Hard 2

As brilliant as I remembered from my youth when I had it on taped VHS, rudely interrupted by the ITV news at 10 (I remember they cut it at a really fucking stupid moment too That must've been heavily cut as well because there was WAY more this time around and it can't have been me misremembering as I'm talking a good 15/20 minutes.

Empire Records

Best film of the 90s. 14/10

The Nice Guys and Big Trouble in Little China (pirate and Prime rental)

Highly recommend watching these two wonderful films back to back if you've had the Week of Shit. *Ryan Gosling scream*

I had a similar experience explaining it to my mum a few months back, which lead to this construction of this Diagram. I lost her around the point of 1985C in BTTF2

Borat Subsequent Moviefilm (Prime) - late to the party on this one, thought, as a sequel to a 14 year old film that possibly wasn't needed, it was pretty darn funny, not as laugh out loud as the original but still had plenty to chuckle over and I genuinely got a bit choked up at a particular bit near the end

Military Wives

I think watching this on a Sunday evening may very well be the peak of moving into middle-age-dom.

I really loved it. I'll watch anything with Sharon Horgan, and this had a whole lot of heart without too much schmaltz. 

The Great Outdoors

Havent seen this since I was small but it was still great. Really love John Candy.

Unpregnant & Colombus

A Haley Lu Richardson double bill, with the latter film being a little gem with a superb performance by John Cho.

Richardson is a fantastic talent who seems to choose wisely so interested to see what she does next. 

Road Trip 

Still 11/10.

A Fantastic Fear of Everything (pirate)

Two medium quality films later, and Crispian Mills is already a million times a better film director than he was a musician. Some good ideas here and Simon Pegg's great but it's too long and repetitive at times. Decent effort though.

True History of the Kelly Gang (Prime)

Fat Russell Crowe excepted, this is a tedious and pointless film that offers nothing beyond the odd bit of gun violence and arse flashing. No idea what the fuck George Mackay's accent was, even Charlie Hunnam sounded more convincing.

Love and Monsters (pirate)

Thoroughly enjoyable post-apocalyptic adventure, just my sort of thing with plentiful nods to Tremors, Zombieland and that sort of thing. Jessica Henwick, eh.

To be fair, that would still be true if he’d never even picked up a camera in his life.

Fatman (Amazon Crime). Figured this would be all kinds of mental from the trailer but I really enjoyed it. Mel Gibson makes a great Father Christmas who looks like he'd give you a slap, Walton Goggins is his usual fantastic wild-eyed self but its Chance Hurstfield and his punchable face that steals the show for me.

Run (pirate)

Aneesh Chaganty's follow-up to the excellent Searching is a much different thriller, but no less enjoyable. Brilliant to see an actual disabled person playing the lead and Kiera Allen is great. Really good stuff, Chaganty's definitely one to watch.
