  • filmlog: The Descent (2005)
    Thrilling heart in your stomach psychological action horror film for 99.8% of its running time before fluffing it in the final moments. At least in the UK version. The US version apparently doesn't piss all over its audience quite so much.

    We watched the tour guide trying to explain the intricassies of this -- perhaps he should have simply passed out copies of this.
  • filmlog: The Sea Hawk (1940)
    Brilliant swashbuckler set just prior to the Spanish Armada with Errol Flynn as thy-slapping Sir Francis Drake. Total fantasy of course, but no worse for it with sea battles and sword fighting and romance and a rousing Queen Elizabeth II.
  • filmlog: The Lost World: Jurassic Park (1997)
    Great dialogue and performances somehow manage to overcome the film's bizarre story structure and plot; there was a hithertoo unmentioned second island? That's convenient.

  • The Impulsive Buy: Kellogg’s Lego Eggo Waffles
    Not quite the genius you would expect: "Worst building material EVER. Not enough holes for all the studs. Need rock hard pieces to erect something. Stalking is bad."
  • The Art Newspaper: Thieves beware: museum curators are after you
    Museum curators are being hired as special constables might be a good thing. Calling the scheme 'Art Beat' really isn't. Do you think they've realised why that sounds so familiar yet?

    Why it sounds so familar.
