- A Scanner Darkly - A
rewatch. Not as weird as I remember but still pretty odd stuff. Very
funny too. "God-damn albino shape-shifting lizard bitches!"
- Destroy all Planets - A Sunday afternoon rubber monster Sumo
match between Gamera (the fire breathing space turtle one) and - via
some audacious plotting - just about every other monster he had appeared
with as reused footage from the previous films. A deliriously weird
introduction to the wonderful world of Daikaiju (giant monster) Movies
for a couple of Daughter Number Two's visiting friends.
- Warlords of the Twenty-First Century (aka Battletruck 1982) - New Zealand Post-apoc Shane stuff.
- Madagascar 3: Europe's Most Wanted - That was fun!
- Akira -
- Superman 2 - Friday Night Movie with the kids.
- The Most Dangerous Game (1932) - the much imitated original.
- Superman 3
- Star Pilot (aka 2+5 Mission Hydra 1966) - For at least the third time, this time with the kids on a wet Sunday afternoon.
- The Arena (1974) - Starring Pam Grier. Gratuitous nudity,
violence, sadism, with a few token nods towards feminism and black
liberation to excuse it all. Roger Corman's formula for the seventies.
Basically: a Women in Prison Film in peplums and togas*. Parts of the
film were passable; parts of Pam Grier were outstanding.
* or should that be 'pepla and togea'? Latin never was my strong suit.
