    @fontgeeksogood you know I have to now. I had to watch something called 'The Sandlot' the other day because it beat Starship Troopers in a competition to crown the best movie of the 90s and I couldn't comprehend how

    It was actually quite good but the overall winner was The Shawshank Redemption, which is decent enough despite being a bit over rated

    The low budget strategy is probably pretty appealing in the current environment so I assume they have plenty more to churn out.
    The lower budget likely means fewer people involved, which also makes the logistics easier for covid filming. And the fact that they're lower budget means the can go for a digital release with Netflix / Prime money and not worry about missing cinema revenues.

    It's been a long time but I do also remember The Sandlot (or "The Sandlot Kids", as it was released over here) being pretty good. For a kids film about baseball anyway. Kind of like Stand By Me but instead of finding a dead body they all projectile vomit after chewing tobacco on a fairground ride.

    @RawShark Yep that's the one. I'm on some American golf forum and it was destroying some good movies in their 'Best 90s movie' vote thread

    I think they have an over inflated opinion of it as it must be relatable to their lives growing up but it is quite good

    Why do we not have nostalgic coming-of-age flicks about chipper young lads playing cricket?

    Oh yeah, because it would be piss dull.

    I do remember an old black & white matinee movie about a Scottish shepherd who wanted to be an Olympic hammer thrower.

    Or something.

    Yeah.

    I thought Problem Child was the fairground projectile vomit film?

    Double-bill of my go to autumnal comfort genre today: mid-low budget British comedy-horror starring people you recognise off the telly (also see Cornetto Trilogy, Sightseers, Prevenge, the tv show Stag etc). These were both on Prime.

    Get Duked

    This was a lot of fun. Four misfit teens doing Duke of Edinburgh Award hike in the highlands get stalked by a mysterious killer with hilarious results.

    Things get trippy and the cast is surprising packed of recognisable people. Things go exactly as you’d expect but then it wouldn’t be a comfort genre if they didn’t.

    8.5/10

    Tales From The Lodge

    Mackenzie Crook, Johnny Vegas and friends gather in a remote farm house to remember a dead friend and tell scary stories. But then the horror starts to become a bit too real for them.

    Again its exactly what you’d expect. Funnier if less spectacular than Get Duked. Terrific cameo from Kiefer Sutherland

    8.5/10

    I enjoy the bit when Mackenzie Crook gets sucked off by a granny.

    Instant wood.

    I think it was Problem Child 2 but yep, that had a fairground vom scene too.

    Lake Placid

    Not quite as good as I remembered it, mostly because of some of the silly, and not quite amusing character interaction in the first part. Once it settles down, it's a good monster flick. The croc is well done for the most part, with some good build up, although it loses its effect somewhat in the final scene. Still fun over all though.

    7/10

    The fact that it can't even make 90 minutes actual run time should at least discount 3 points.

    There's nothing wrong with short and sweet. I'd prefer it if more romps were less than two hours.

    1hr 40 is absolutely the optimum run time imo.

    The way way back 9/10

    Originally went with 8/10, but as a coming of age film it's easily among the best I've seen so felt worthy of getting bumped up a notch.

    A gem of a film for sure. The Stand By Me of its generation etc.

    Maybe more Dazed and Confused. Either way it’s great.

    Journey's End

    A group of soldiers in the trenches prepare for a German attack during the First World War.

    I remember reading this at high school and it's something that's always stuck with me. It's more a slow build character study about the horrors/naivety of war so anyone expecting something like 1917 will be disappointed.

    The cast are excellent and as an adaption I can't really fault it but do think some of the intimacy(?) is lost from the transition to big screen.

    Dark Crimes

    Jim Carey is a Polish police investigator trying to determine the killer in a twisted cold case. At times it's difficult to figure out who's more twisted - him or the killer. There's an effective brooding atmosphere throughout and some decent twists and turns along the way.

    Really? Sitting on 0% on RT. Supposed to be one of the worst films ever.

    I was bang up for Doctor Sleep tonight, but the Director's Cut has dropped off Nowtv. Worth waiting for, or press ahead with the theatrical release?

    Haven’t watched the DC but the version I watched was still pretty good.
