Christine – 7.5/10
John Carpenter adapts a Stephen King novel about a car that was born evil. Filmed in the same neighbourhood as Halloween, this has all the trappings that define a great Carpenter flick. I particularly loved the use of old 50's/60's rock 'n' roll tracks made to sound sinister and creepy.
It's one of those films that should be awful but thanks to the craftmanship that went into its production, it is fantastic. It even features a typically brilliant performance from Harry Dean-Stanton.
I've let myself down. Talk about fail. At least someone is paying attention tho tbf. More attention than me anywaySo it's no different to when you watched it last week then?
Really enjoyed this in the cinema. Not see many people slate it this muchHalloween (2018). Absolute guff, and a dull, tedious and unnecessary retread. No idea how it garnered the critical praise it did. Nodded off three times watching it.

I was pissed when I watched this, but can remember some bits being funny. Batista is a decent actor when not being Drax
Rene Zellweger as Judy Garland, and does it extremely well. Came away feeling very sorry for Judy, not Mrs Maygo though- said as an adult you’re mature enough to know what’s right and wrong, and what’s good for your kids or not
This was directed by the same guy who did Paterson. A film in which nothing happens. Proper fart sniffing tripe. I dont think I can bring myself to ever watch this. Shame as the cast is amazing.The Dead Don't Die
Tries to be so, so clever but absolutely fucking fails. No laughs, seems to be mocking zombie fillums, and the star- studded cast are wasted
You're babbling a bit marra.Day 19:
Ghost Stories - 8/10
A well written, finely crafted British horror film which is genuinely creepy. It feels like such a long time since we've had a film like this. I think any horror enthusiast who grew up on 70's/80's horror will enjoy it.
There are a few splashes of dark humour and the casting is superb. Paul Whitehouse was a particularly inspired piece of casting. He is such a talented character actor. I would love to see more of him.
The film uses some expert cinematography and lighting to 'trick' you into seeing things. At one point I was freaked out by what turned out to be car seat. It is atmospherically creaky and rusty. Jump scares are kept to a minimum and they are fairly effective.
It almost felt like a feature length episode of Inside No. 9 at times and it was co-written by Jeremy Dyson who worked on League of Gentlemen.
