Velocity Trap. Love cheesy 80's/90's action films, this one didn't quite hit the mark. 2.5/5

I finally got around to watching Crazy Rich Asians the other night after hearing so much praise for it.

Jesus it's boring, and not particularly funny. It's basically 2 hours (way too long - it really didn't need to go for more than 90 minutes) of wealth porn. I honestly can't remember a single joke in that movie that made me laugh. It's great that the film can hopefully be a gateway for more Asian representation in Hollywood, but when it all comes down to it, it's basically just Monster-In-Law but set in Singapore. Yeah we get it, wealthy Asian parents want their kids to marry other wealthy Asians, and the peasant American outsider has to win over the traditionalist mother by proving her intellectual capability. It's been done.

Lords of Dogtown. Probably the 15th time I've seen it but i love it.
Not exactly an accurate movie as they got a lot of the events in the movie wrong but that's okay. It's still a great movie and Heath Ledger played Skip Engblom very well.

I should check that out, I've never seen it but I love the doco Dogtown and Z-Boys that came out a few years before it.

Alita: Battle Angel and its pretty decent. Still a CGI overload and the storyline could have been pulled from any second computer game from the last 20 years. Still, compared to the superhero movies it feels like it has at least a little originality. The murderball part does feel fairly wedged in and imo would have worked better more in the background for this movie and then make it a focus in a sequel but to be fair I don't know if that would be too far removed from the source material.

The documentary is fantastic. After watching that, Lords Of Dogtown was really underwhelming. Just felt completely unnecessary and the real life characters were way more interesting than their recreations.

IT chapter 2. Definitely weaker than the first one but certainly didn’t drop off a cliff like the mini series in the 90’s. The writing wasn’t particularly strong but most of the leads did an ok job. Felt the “Mike” character was horribly miscast whilst the others were reasonably on. Watchable but not a wow flick. 5.5/10

Visually, amazing. Just couldn't invest in it enough though. A solid movie, could've been a little better.

A lot of hype around the sequel coming out so I thought I better do myself a favour and watch chapter 1 for the first time. Good movie - although I reckon it gets less scary as it goes on. First scene is great. Solid characters. It's behind Insidious and Sinister for the scare factor IMO but will definitely see go and watch part 2.

Where do you manage to see these films Toump Ass? A lot of them sound like movies i would enjoy buy not on netflix etc as a lot of them seem pretty obscure
Try the justwatch app.

It's really handy for finding where you can get most tv and movies online (if they are available)
Hey mate, if you (or anyone else) is still keen on checking this out, it's streaming on SBS on Demand for some Ozploitation thing going on at the the moment :)
Added to my watch list.

Now if only I could find a copy of Houseboat Horror

I inherited a big shopping bag of s**t with no idea where it came from, the fella told me I have to take it as service for him fixing my telly. He works at a club so I assumed maybe it is all the awful movies from those claw machine things.

You should watch them for me.

I watched one. It was a masterpiece.



There's unnecessary tits, explosions, and a character called 'slick'.

Really wanted to actually pay to see this as its the sort of film I'd like to support. Not being released until October 24th though, a month and a half after its DVD release elsewhere...

I really enjoyed it. An above average movie full of songs from the boss = a very enjoyable watch. Similar to yesterday, but I thought the story of this was better. Would recommend for anyone but especially Springsteen fans.

I may still go see it when it comes out just for the cinema sound and atmosphere.
