Dead Man's Shoes

This is a really well-made film centered on the revenge of a soldier, taken against a gang of thugs who wronged his mentally challenged brother while he was away with military service. The small-town 'gang' are almost laughably pathetic in most situations, which makes the idea that they've somehow worked themselves up to hurt someone all the more maddening and leads the audience to easily fall into sympathizing with our lead Paddy Considine, who can turn from affable to menacing on a dime in this role.

Highly recommended.

This one was a tad uneven for me, even on a revisit, since I went into it hoping for more of a horror film than a comedy, but there's still some enjoyment to be had if you try to keep the expectations low. I mean, hell, there's even a young Jack Nicholson for your viewing pleasure, how entertaining is that?

Rental.

Tower of London

Another wonderful Price performance as he slowly unravels completely while trying to kill his way to the throne of England, no matter what relative might be in his way. Great stuff, and something I was happy to finally cross off my List Of Shame.

Well worth tracking down.

Master of the World

okay, so if I'm being honest about this one, I just don't especially care anything about the Jules Verne adventure material upon which this is based, so a madman in an airship holding the world hostage until they disarm, in a strangely misguided attempt to make it a better place, most of that was lost to me. I was amused by a young Charles Bronson in a supporting role though.

Different strokes, so give it a spin, you may dig it quite a bit.

Pit and the Pendulum (The Pit and the Pendulum)

Another film crossed off the list during my Vincent Price marathon! Filled with gorgeous looking sets and atmosphere, it's easy to start to buy into Price's madness as he becomes increasingly unhinged.

Worth tracking down for a rental at the very least.
