The Dead Zone, with Christopher Walken. One of my favourite movies of his.
And I also love the spin off show.

...Anna and the Apocalypse...a musical comedy horror...it strangely actually worked quite well, I enjoyed it...the storyline didnít offer anything new but it was just all an easy watch for what it was....I would say 6/10...

O Brother, Where Art Thou?

I thought this was brilliant. Very entertaining story, lots of funny moments, good music, and the three main characters were all great. Perfect run time for a mid afternoon film as well at just over an hour and a half

8.5/10

Nomadland

I didn’t realise until after watching that Swanky, Linda May and Bob play ficitionalised versions of themselves

It did feel at times like a documentary rather than a movie

thought provoking film, and hard to believe that there is a community of nomads in the States

9/10

Willy's Wonderland - that was the weirdest, most stupid movie I've ever watched, still couldn't stop watching it. A Nicholas Cage classic. So bad it's almost good I can't rate this

Wrong Turn (2021)

Despite warnings to stick to the Appalachian Trail, hikers stray off course and cross into land inhabited by a hidden community of mountain dwellers who use deadly means to protect their way of life. Suddenly under siege, the friends seem headed to the point of no return -- unless one man can reach them in time.

Spoiler:

I had low expectations going in and they were pretty well founded, the movie is poorly paced, badly written and insanely dumb. The original is no masterpiece but this movie feels like a step down even for this series.

The characters are dumb af, bar maybe the main girl the rest are pretty loathsome and really one dimensional and nobody is given any growth apart from said main girl so you end up not caring who dies or lives and sadly the deaths are all off screen apart from one head smash so there is just no reward at all.

The clan are moronic too, they stalk the six friends, fell a tree that kills one of them (the best scene in the movie) and steal from them before kidnapping and killing another and then get angry that one of the survivors killed a guy dressed in a deer skull. It's so poorly written.

The final twist is that the main girls father goes looking for her, she decides to escape but her boyfriend who the clan have taken on as a hunter is somehow brainwashed after 4 weeks and decides to stay behind. It makes no sense and the movie is a mess.


3/10

Freaky - 7/10

Pretty good, pretty funny too, I feel like the ending was a bit stupid though

The original with Eliza Dusku is so much better.

I probably would knock off a point as at times the accent was hard to understand!

It was really hard to understand, I'm not sure if that meant Daniel Kaluuya was doing a really good job or a really bad one
