Boo! A Madea Halloween
I've never seen any of Tyler Perry's Medea movies before but if they're the same as this shit I think I'll pass from watching the rest. The movie sounded good on paper but as soon as I started to watch it I had an inkling it wasn't gonna be that good. The jokes, the acting, hell just about everything in this production stinks. Stupid, lame and awful are some of the words to describe this movie. Avoid!

The Desert Rats
Interesting re-enactment of the desert campaign during WWII as seen through the experiences of one small company in the British army. A motley band of Commonwealth troops of mixed personalities led by Captain MacRoberts played by Richard Burton. Through the fire and hell of battling the Desert Fox and his war-hardened troops, MacRoberts by lifting their spirits and their morale eventually melds his men into a fighting fit group of warriors. The Desert Rats is a very realistic war movie, presenting strategies, battles, action scenes and a great duel between James Mason (as Rommel) and Richard Burton. Actual genuine footage from the war looks to have been inserted into the movie as well. The battle scene between the dug-in Aussies and Rommel's tanks is well filmed and exciting. Well worth a look.

A Place to Go
This is a great social drama centering around the Flint family who are living in a poor area of Bethnal Green, London. 60's pop star Michael Sarne is the idealistic hero seeking to escape from his drab existence by agreeing to take part in a robbery at a local factory. He hooks up with the inimitable Rita Tushingham, who proves to be more than a match for his wiles as her character is full of life and rather independent. She's the best actor in the whole thing, certainly showing up Sarne as a rather bland leading man. James Bond's Bernard Lee plays the mouthy head of the Flint family alongside On The Buses' Doris Hare as his wife. It's interesting to note that times are changing near the end as the Flints buy a new high rise flat and their old street is destined to be torn down. If your expectations are not too high, you'll find some entertainment here.

Sky West and Crooked
A coming of age tale as 17 year old disturbed teenager Brydie White played by Hayley Mills falls for a travelling gypsy boy who gives her the love she doesn't get at home. It's sad to say that this movie is a forgotten classic. I'm not sure if the characters in the movie are supposed to be Welsh or English but judging by the accents and some of the actors in the production I'm guessing it's Welsh. The cinematography showing the beautiful Gloucestershire countryside is fantastic and harks back to how the Summer months used to be in the UK. A young Ian McShane plays Mills' gypsy lover Roibin and there are appearances by Geoffrey Bayldon, Annette Crosbie, Jacqueline Pearce (of Blake's 7 fame) and noted Welsh actress Rachel Thomas. For those wondering about the title it refers to Brydie's mental state. It's a good movie for fans of Hayley Mills with an interesting story to boot.

Aaaaaaaah!
A good idea for a plot but badly executed. How would society look today if humans reverted back to being neanderthals/apes that communicate through grunting. The story is set in modern times with modern houses, technology etc but yet the people eat with their hands and don't appear to have any degree of intelligence. I think that's one thing that doesn't make any sense. There is no overall storyline, it's pretty random and pointless and seems set up mostly to shock the audience such as one man masturbating with a mouse! I quickly became bored with the whole thing. It really is a big mess this movie. I'm sure it's destined to become a cult movie of some sort but I couldn't wait for it to finish. Didn't like it one bit. Terrible.

The Naked Truth
A particularly impressive and downright British screwball farce. A scandal sheet publisher is blackmailing various people with the following threat, pay up or your dirty secrets will become public knowledge. Four of his victims decide to kill him instead. The comedy comes from their failed attempts. The characters are so well defined, with master character actor Peter Sellers again showing his virtuoso talents for adopting various disguises. Terry Thomas and the smooth Dennis Price are brilliantly assured with the material, but Sellers does steal the show. Peggy Mount and a young Joan Sims also appear. The whole film is rather silly, no part more so than the ending, but is very entertaining and very funny as the bungling victims try to kill either themselves or their tormentor, each with an equal lack of success. Well worth watching.

Stonehearst Asylum
A Gothic horror tale based on an Edgar Allen Poe tale, filled with the grotesque excesses of Victorian medicine and mental health treatments. Throw in two big stars as two opposing forces in this literal madhouse, and you might think you have a humdinger here. But no - the first hour drags a bit but thankfully things pick up afterwards and it becomes fairly interesting. The cast has some heavyweights which includes Kate Beckinsale, Jim Sturgess, David Thewlis, Brendan Gleeson, Ben Kingsly and Michael Caine. With a cast like this however I was expecting something a little bit better. Overall, the movie is good but it's not something that you're likely to remember for anything special.

Sightseers
This is very much a team effort: the two stars (Alice Lowe and Steve Oram) also co-wrote the script. With a distinct nod to earlier movies such as Badlands, it focuses on two lovers, Tina and Chris, who embark on a caravanning holiday that takes a decidedly bloody turn, as they dispose of several innocent victims. The script is deadpan yet extremely funny: both protagonists get some valuable one-liners. Director Ben Wheatley's cinematic style is certainly startling, with its deliberate use of out-of-sync sound, fantasy sequences, a little bit of gore and a soundtrack that includes work by Soft Cell and Frankie Goes to Hollywood. Alice Lowe and Steve Oram are brilliant in their roles. If you enjoy dark and mysterious movies with a complex story line, then I would recommend you watch this.

PSI Factor
An obscure and rarely seen low budget movie about a scientist who is a part of a top secret Air Force project that is sending messages into space and who gets a reply back from aliens. Nobody seems to believe him and after getting his girlfriend to steal a classified file about him, the scientist goes on the run with the Air Force in hot pursuit. The aliens appear as a glowing red ball of light that help and hinder the scientist at times. Scenes of young children playing with insects are seen at various intervals and this is never explained until the climax when the scientist finally gets to understand what the aliens are all about. Peter Mark Richman is good in the leading role of the scientist. What lets this movie down however is the cheap special effects and there isn't that much of excitement to be had. If you're the type that likes The X-Files or the 60's series The Invaders then this movie might be up your street.

The Shadow of Chikara
Southern Captain Wishbone Cutter, Indian/Irish companion Half-Moon O'Brian and geologist Amos Richmond head out on a journey to a cave which supposedly holds some valuable stones. Along the way they come across a young lady, Drusilla Wilcox, who was the last survivor of an Indian ambush and decide she'll come too. But it doesn't seem quite right, as they are being followed by some unseen force who doesn't want them to reach their destination. A fairly offbeat but murky western / horror variation set during the end of the American Civil War which hints that a demon force known as Chikara is stalking the group for trespassing on it's terrain. It's a low-cost looking production but it is eerie at times and atmospheric. The acting by the cast is better than the story itself led by Joe Don Baker as Wishbone Cutter and Sondra Locke as the mysterious Drusilla. There's a bit of a twist right near the climax which caught me offguard and gave the movie a satisfying conclusion. Also a disturbing scene featuring a couple of horses falling down a side of a mountain is unsettling and looks real enough. It's not too bad of a movie.

Final Girl
A young woman is raised and trained to destroy a gang of murderers who hunt and kill blonde women for fun. It is essentially all she knows and she wants to please her master who has put in all the years to make her the killing machine that she is. However the movie fails to build up any tension and you fail to really care about any of the characters. The script is too evasive and you find that you cannot follow just how any of the characters think. You don't understand their motivation to do anything and so you are unsure as to why they do anything. This movie leaves a lot of questions unanswered and has much to be desired. Although Abigail Breslin looks stunning in the leading role she gives a hollow and uninteresting turn. Alexander Ludwig (Bjorn in Vikings) also doesn't impress at all. Give it a miss.

In the Dark Half
A young teenage girl who is babysitting a single father's young son whilst he is out poaching rabbits finds him dead in the morning. She becomes convinced that she is being haunted by the boy. A wasteful low budget British horror movie which is all about mood and atmosphere as the story itself is not that good. It hints that something otherworldy/supernatural is happening to the teenage girl but you don't see anything taking place in the end. I found the main actress, Jessica Barden, a bit disappointing as the lead character; she's limited to one expression throughout and that soon gets wearying. There's nothing to really recommend about this movie so if you skip it you're not missing out on anything.

The Smallest Show on Earth
Husband-and-wife team Bill Travers and Virginia McKenna play a newly married couple who inherit a dilapidated cinema (and its elderly, incompetent and equally dilapidated staff), and try to restore it to something like it's original glory. However they soon discover that it's not going to be as easy as perhaps they first thought. There is competition from a huge modern cinema just across the street, which is in need of a car-park and the site of the old "Bijou" would be just the thing. This is a terrific comedy and features Peter Sellers, Margaret Rutherford, Bernard Miles as the cinema staff, and Leslie Phillips as the Bijou owner's solicitor. The movie is in the grand tradition of those lovely old British comedies in which people set about renovating something old and long forgotten and against all the odds succeed. Where the movie also works is as a tribute to the golden age of cinema, in particular the Bijou's staff tearfully watching an old silent movie. It's an endearing tale of how it used to be in the movie business in the old days. Well worth seeing.
