A Walk Among the Tombstones
3 days ago via Rotten Tomatoes

I love the original book and almost all of Lawrence Block's work and this is a good take one one of his major characters, the post-drunk post-cop Matt Scudder.
Very well filmed and with convincing characterisation this is well worth seeing, with just one negative for me... some parts of the film have the feel of the first episode of a tv serial establishing characters who seem peripheral to the film.

Sin City
Sin City (2005)
27 days ago via Rotten Tomatoes

This is a super effective transference of a graphic novel to the screen and manages the near impossible feat of keeping both sides happy.
It looks fabulous and if you have a taste for the hard bitten kind of crime/outsider
Top marks all round. It's too late to see in cinemas now but get a DVD or download and then rush off to see the sequel.

What We Do In The Shadows
34 days ago via Rotten Tomatoes

Four vampires share a flat and... oh, sorry, I've told you the only joke in the entire dreary film.
This is a mocumentary which instantly lets itself down as the camera crew seem totally disinterested in the murders which occur regularly or the appallingly boring nature of the vampires.
Genuinely one the least interesting films I can remember seeing.

God Bless America
40 days ago via Rotten Tomatoes

Here's a film that teeteres on the edge of greatness for a while.
It's not great, but it's pretty good.
A man watches in disbelief as both his life and the America he loved fall apart. A country obsessed with fear and hate, ignorance and greed, reality TV and extremist commentators.
Finally he's had enough anmd takes off on a journey of revenge.
Somehow he finds a teenage fellow traveller and they start to kill the evil Americans.
If you can buy into it, it is a very involving film as the comedy turns to tragedy.
Slaughter, belly laughs and the occasional slightly flat footed diatribe about the vacuousness of modern life.
I'd watch it again.

Com' bello far l'amore (Love Is in the Air)

Many Italian rom-coms are funny, some are very funny, but when they try to introduce more sex they seem to fall flat.
A couple going through a flat (!) period put up (!) and old friend who just happens to be a porn star (!).
WOW... yes, that's it... in the next ten seconds you have imagined every single scene.
This is one of them.
