Succubus: Hell-Bent - 10/10 for awfulness and entertainment value|
"A female demon or supernatural being appearing in dreams, who takes the form of a human woman in order to seduce men, usually through sexual intercourse. The male counterpart is the incubus. Religious traditions hold that repeated intercourse with a succubus may result in the deterioration of health or even death".
Sounds like the best film ever doesn't it? Welcome to B movie heaven. Having watched A Tale Of Two Sisters, I decided to go for the film equivalent of a Mctuckys burger. This film delivers of every possible level of awfulness you can imagine.
The plot? Two rich kids who fly jet-fighters in their spare time go to the US Megaluff to drink beer and ppaaarrtttyyyy. That's where one of them meets the said Succubus and she then proceeds to tear into him whilst having sex. She then appears and disappears virtually right in front of him and has her wicked way with him. He then runs out of her at the end of their holiday and heads back to LA. She then comes after him to 'finish the job'.
Somehow, they managed to afford Kelly Hu and Gary Busey. Ok, so they appear for about 5 mins each but Gary Busey is way OTT as usual. It's even got some decent FX for the jet scenes too. Quite amazing they can get a large amount of funding for something so awful/brilliant.
Oh, and the lady who plays the Succubus, she's absolutely stunning. If you're going to go, you may as well come and go at the same time.
The Resident Evil films. I'm one of the reasons they keep making them.

Made it half way through and turned it off. I had heard it was poor but figured Will Ferrell is always good for a laugh!
It turns out that shortly after signing up for this movie, Will realised how dreadful it was going to be because he doesn't even try to be amusing in this. You can tell he is literally phoning in the entire performance giving next to no energy whatsoever.
Anyway, he builds a thing that ... urgh I cant be bothered - it's just so shite!
Nothing like the TV show and just turns into a horrible cockney fight fest. Also minus a few points for a naked Ray Winstone.

Affleck is great as both actor and director. There's little action just a well told and unusual (though not as unusual as the build up made it sound).

Funny, touching, surprising & generally awesome anime about three homeless people trying to find the parents of an abandoned baby.
All Good Things (US Netflix)|
Quite a good film until the last third kicks in with a wtf moment, I nearly spat my tea out.
Watch this film if you like:
- Ryan Gosling with sideburns
- A quick glance of Kirsten Dunsts boobs
- True story movies told in flashback
Give me £5 I'm worth it.
|Worth it for a gander at the boobs it sounds like.|

Stupendous entertainment. Loved it.
|Drive - wow, like The Getaway (1973) by Peckinpah in its build up etc, can't believe it has taken me so long to getting around to seeing it! Brilliant 9/10|

It's not a serious movie. That being said it contains light-hearted humor which often gets cheesy but is still charming if you get the 80s and 90s action movies.
It's even more cheesy than the first one - might explain some of the complaints.
Definitely a good movie to bring a girlfriend or a date along. That way you are certain they are there because of you and not the movie.
7/10 - if not taken seriously
Sam Rockwell. Colin Farrell. CHRISTOPHER WALKEN. Woody Harrelson.
Despite the cast, and their undeniable comedic ablities, the film isn't all that funny, clever or entertaining. It's one running meta joke that's stretched for way too long. The dialogue isn't very well-written, the characters are bad, etc.
I appreciate that it tries something 'different' from your average film, but it's just not very good. It feels like a lazy version of Adaptation.
I did laugh a few times though. So there's that.

When you can't see the angles on the wall you're in trouble.
It's gone back to the old Bond templates more...Shame, as I really enjoyed Casino Royale's more retained pace and slightly more believable plot...
I left with some questions though...
I know which film the car was previously used in, but what was CraigBond doing with it? Didn't he make 00 status just two films ago? Ar they now saying it wasn't a reboot?
So at one point Bond casually breaks into M's house to sit there in the dark...Later we find a villain desperately trying to find M for some revenge with better hacking/breaking and entering skills than Bond, yet he stages an enormously elaborate scheme to find M...Why?...
Since when do Komodo dragons drag people away screaming? Their whole gig was to bite and let the poor bastard die of infection a few days later, wasn't it?
Also, is it just me or does Bond make a point out of arriving two seconds after a bad guy kills someone?
That said, it's still Bond, so I wasn't expecting the plot to make much sense...And it was entertaining...

Great film but could have done with a bit more Cranston.
