The Abominable Dr. Phibes

Wonderful macabre fun

(Edit) 27/04/2014

Vincent Price was always one with a tendency to ham things up a bit too much so his best work is always the more tongue in cheek horror rather than the po-faced stuff. Here he gets to play a sly, deranged genius bumping people off in various gruesome ways. An all star supporting cast including Terry Thomas. This DVD version is really nicely remastered too, with upscaling, it looks like a blu-ray

Accattone

Stylish, gritty classic

(Edit) 04/04/2014

Pasolini is perhaps better known for his medieval films but here he presents a slice of real life from the edge of society. Thematically closer to an early Scorsese film with it depiction of desperate men on the edge. The transfer to blu-ray is nice too.

The World's End

a nice surprise

(Edit) 04/04/2014

I was growing a little bit tired of Simon Pegg and did not expect to like this but found it a surprising film. He plays a complete loser. An alcoholic, recovering drug addict and liar who is stuck in the past. I found it funny and poignant, as well as a nice commentary on pub chain blandness.

Death Watch

fascinating obscure film

(Edit) 04/04/2014

Not as gloomy as it sounds from the plot title. A beautifully shot film set in the recognisable near future. Almost all disease is cured so the terminally ill become overnight celebrities and hounded into becoming reality TV stars. Keitel & Schneider are wonderful and the Glasgow setting is used to create some very unique cinematography. Was that really over 2 hours? It certainly didn't feel like it
