Mockumentary about rampant drug taking at the 1982 Tour de France. Monumentally silly at times, there are still more comedic hits than misses. The casting is phenomenal, with a stand out turn from Lance Armstrong as himself. Entertaining.
Strangely enjoyable mess of a film. While Tom Cruise may take top billing, a delirious turn from Russell Crowe steals the show. More interested in setting up its lore than telling a coherent story, this still entertains if you don’t question it too much.
A South Korean girl fights to keep her pet super-pig from the hands of a multinational corporation. Utterly enthralling ET/Pete’s Dragon variant for adults, drawing on Gilliam, Jeunet et Caro, early Besson, Buster Keaton and Studio Ghibli, yet is an original too.
Excellent crime caper that is essentially a 60 minute plus gun fight in a warehouse. Copley steals the show and Wheatley confidently wrings the most out of the single location. This is at times absurd, amusing and genuinely entertaining. 😀
Found footage tomfoolery as four friends head into the woods to make a documentary. So far, so Blair Witch, but this heads into unexpected territory and is all the better for it. Not a classic, but better than most in this genre. 🙂
Small scale, Indonesian hyper carnage at the hands of Welshman, Gareth Evans. More winces per square inch than any US action film in recent memory as lone cop battles his way through floor after floor of increasing madness. A must see. 😮
