    I started watching Hardware, liked it, then some people came by and said they wanted to watch it too, so I rewound, after 15 minutes they said it was shit and didn't want to watch any more and the silly 16yo me, instead of throwing them out for being stupid, got all self-conscious and ashamed and never finished it. I'll rectify that right now.

    Gallowwalkers

    A western-fantasy-horror starring Wesley Snipes as a cursed gunslinger whose victims come back from the dead.

    For the first half of the film I was trying to figure out what the fuck the confusing flashbacks, jarring camerawork and badly stitched together plot meant until someone finally got around to explaining. I zoned out for the rest.

    Thankfully its only about 90s mins and you can use that time to count how many other better westerns it pays homage to. I counted 3.

    2/10

    I expected a generic game-based movie, but it turned out to be quite interesting. Gave me a Kimi no Na wa vibe towards the end, I'm not sure how to feel about it. Good overall.

    70/100

    Interesting fact: I think its supposed to be a satan rather than just a monster

    Interesting fact 2: Kim Catralls weird haircut is due to her growing out her stupid vulcan haircut from Star Trek 6

    Has anybody seen Koko-di Koko-da? Saw the thumbnail when browsing the BFI Player and the trailer portrays it as a Scandi black-comedy folk horror…

    Interesting fact 3: we're all familiar with Kim Cattrall's tits, but Leonard Nimoy investigated them fully in order to protect the family-friendly Star Trek franchise.

    The New Mutants

    Well that was not good. Everyone was terrible. Accents came and went. The story was aimless. And for an X-men spin off, no one ever seemed to use their mutant abilities in any coherent fashion. Oh your ability is fire? Better try and club a baddy with a church pew, then.

    But I will give it a consolation point for at least trying to do something different. I think the idea behind it was One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest but with mutants and a bit of horror. It failed miserably but the idea itself wasn’t awful.

    And it’s 90 minutes so at least it’s kind enough to be brief.

    3/10

    Its such a bummer that New Mutants is getting dire reviews everywhere. I’ve not seen it yet but when I was younger X-Force were my guys and this movie has some of the classic X-Force/New Mutants I dug back then

    To be fair, it’s not as bad as the 1996 Generation X TV movie:

    High-Rise

    I'm not sure what I think about this one. It's like Snowpiercer but way weirder, with a 70s aesthetic and a dash of Delicatessen thrown in there.

    Love Ben Wheatley though. I hope he keeps making interesting things after he's done with the shark movie.

    7/10? I dunno

    High rise is definitely a marmite film. I think I appreciated it more than I actually enjoyed it.

    I think my issue is that it doesn't seem to know what it wants to be.

    It starts off as a narrative film with clearly-drawn characters. But at a certain point everything goes completely fucking bananas. And it becomes hard to care about anyone because you can't even tell wtf is going on, why people are suddenly all fucking each other, or what the film is actually trying to say about... rich people? Class warfare? I have no idea.

    Kill List took a sudden turn for the crazy too, but it worked better there imo because of how scary it was. Here it's just a bit of a mess.

    But maybe it's genius, like some kind of new Kubrick thing that people won't really appreciate for a decade or so? I dunno.

    Read the book last year and it's bonkers as well, although I haven't got around to watching the film yet. I really liked it, but couldn't tell you what it was about.

    Loved the book and like Ben Wheately for the most part but really didn't care for High Rise at all.
    Wheatleys new film looks a bit by the numbers horror in the woods as well. Could just be the trailer though.

    How was Wheatley's Rebecca? Might give that a go this weekend.

    @barchetta I liked it but wouldn't rave about it - a decent watch to pass the time.

    High Rise is a great book and an OK film.

    Sightseers is fantastic. I liked it so much that I instantly bought the DVD and had it posted to my sister who was totally freaked out by it, and by me getting it for her :)

    @barchetta Me and the wife watched it a few months ago and we really liked it. We had nothing to compare it to however and I gather reception hasn't been amazingly positive for it.

    Kill List is my fav Wheatly film by a mile. Sad to say and by sheer coincidence, I have my Kill List T-shirt on at work today (black with that folk symbol etched in white, had it for years). Possibly because the cast is superb mind you, but I do like the right turn it takes at the end as well.

    Actually I also love A Field in England.

    In The Earth seems to be channeling that a little, quite keen to see it.

    I had always wondered what Ben Weatley would do with a talent like Jason Statham.

    It's certainly an odd fit. I don't honestly think we'll get much of his stamp on it and it'll end up quite generic and more than a bit shit. Much like the first.
