'An American Werewolf in London' (1981)

Looked fantastic on a big screen, and we got to watch it in the company of not only John Landis but also Jenny Agutter. She looked fantastic on a big screen and in her cinema seat.

News from the screening:

Landis has sold the rights for a remake to Dimension

His next project is a Burke and Hare film which will be "75% accurate". It starts filming in Edinburgh soon and he said it will have a big name in the cast which will cause a bit of a stir when it's announced in a couple of weeks.

EDIT: Oh and he did talk about Michael Jackson when asked. He said he liked him a lot, he was nuts, but he liked him a lot.

There's going to be an even better screening of American Werewolf (in London, appropriately!) at the end of August... wink.gif

How do you know, you weren't at this one?

You're right that they'll be another one worth seeing though. He announced the blu-ray edition will be showing as part of Frightfest. Landis was very excited about it. He said the effects look even better under a microscope.

This was an orginal print, it was pretty crummy, but it looked great.

Kim Newman is a very uncharismatic host.

He thinks having a moustache grants instant charisma.
He is wrong.

Judging by the reviews, it's possible I may have been blindsided by the metric tonne of Pretty on the screen:
Barat, Little, Baynton, Lloyd-Hughes, that bloke in the yellow cardigan .... Even Con O'Neill was pretty stirring in some scenes, despite playing an angry, violent, occult-obsessed, pill-popping homosexual from Gloucester.

Nightwatch

Well, if this film doesn't put you off working in a morgue, I don't know what will. Seriously though, I quite liked this. Fair enough, I did guess who the murderer was pretty early on (and usually I'm quite bad at that), but it didn't make the rest of the plot any less thrilling.

Sunshine Cleaning

Film by the makers of Little Miss Sunshine and it's very much in the same style. Unfortunate that Alan Arkin plays exactly the same role more or less as he did in Little Miss Sunshine but otherwise a nice gentle film about a single mother Rose (Amy Adams) who sets up a business with her sister Norah (Emily Blunt) cleaning up crime scenes. There's a lot of nice plot reveals as the film goes on which goes to explain a lot about the characters and their behaviour. It's one of those films where nothing really happens but you come out feeling satisfied that you haven't wasted your time watching it.

Transformers 2

I'll be honest, I've never seen a Michael Bay film that I didn't find watchable in a dumb, action movie kind of way*. Until now. That's right, this is Michael Bay's worst film*. Comedy, pacing and coherence have never been his strong points, but Jesus, this makes the first film look like a tight, Hitchcockian thriller. It's all over the place.

As for the action, it's surprisingly dull because there is absolutely no sense of peril whatsoever. A lot of the time it's all tease and no pay off. It actually reminded me of the JCVD Street Fighter movie (yeah, that's right) in that respect. The plot is almost unintelligible because they've taken lots of ideas and just thrown them at the screen without any real thought.

The only plus points I can think of are the Beef's parents who make the most of what they have to work with, and John Turturro redeems himself a little bit after the first film. Other than that the fx and sound were as good as you'd expect but so what.

All in all the whole thing is like Michael Bay's coke fuelled indulgences taken a few thousand miles beyond the point of excess. Probably best avoided.



* I haven't seen Pearl Harbour.

I've just remembered a point I wanted to make to Bay, I know he's a fan. When making a children's film, yes to having lovely, cute doggies in it and fuck you to having coffins draped in the US flag in it, you prick.

And Ed makes three. I went in hoping for the sort of giddy thrill that the first one gave me and I just hated it.
