Firestarter

Feels like a low budget TV movie

(Edit) 02/01/2018

Not sure if its simply showing its age or if it really was the worst representation of a Stephen King novel ever (although he appears as a writer). The acting and script are terrible although the fire starting scenes are quite well done. I was glad to get to the end because I had washing to do.

Who Am I

Best Hacker Film Ever?

(Edit) 25/12/2017

The writer and producer avoid the usual Hollywood errors: juvenile use of networking terms that make most IT geeks cringe for them. Okay - so there is glorified use of graphics to energise some hacks but the film quite rightly focuses on the most common route of hacking - human beings: discarded paper in trash and plain old blagging of the security guard is half the battle. This is the truth.

The director's use of an imaginary train with masked passengers symbolising the online presence of other hackers is genius. Several twists towards the end keep you guessing. The love interest element is an unwelcome distraction at times, however doesn't reduce the impact of this great film.

The Best of Rod Stewart and the Faces

VHS Transfer of Lucklustre Live Footage

(Edit) 28/10/2017

No revealing TV appearances or rare European slots here, just a selection of tracks with extremely annoying scrolling "information" along the bottom of the screen, culled from two live performances in their later years - so expect Rod in his spandex and eyeliner glory rather than the more organic beginnings after the Small Faces split.
