What a film. The Final Member (2012, dir. Jonah Bekhor & Zach Math) tells the story of Sigurður Hjartarson, also known as Siggi, and his love of collecting a very special type of specimen – the mammalian penis. Siggi has collected specimens from far and wide and displays them at the Icelandic Phallological Museum in […]

Yet again I’ve gotten stuck into a television series and I feel the need to post/rant about how much I love it. I’m sure you’ve all heard of NBC’s Hannibal before – the general story is based on the book Red Dragon by Thomas Harris, with the character of Hannibal himself…

All throughout the month of August there has been a really excellent blogathon happening over at Movierob and Ten Stars Or Less – a blogathon called Argumentative August, all about highlighting the fifty best courtroom drama films (according to GamesRadar). I chose to rewatch and review the classic To Kill A Mockingbird (1962). Be sure […]

Lately I’ve been collecting lists of my favourite mini-moments in film. I would define the term ‘mini-moment’ as a tiny part of a film that may seem inconsequential in the grand scheme of the whole film, but strikes an impression on its own as completely memorable, sometimes moreso than the rest of the film. Here […]

I chose to place Jacob’s Ladder (1990, dir. Adrian Lyne) on my Blindspot Series list as I’d always heard people saying things to the effect of, “This film is a ripoff of Jacob’s Ladder“, or “That ending was pretty similar to Jacob’s Ladder except…”, et cetera. Having never seen the film, I always felt in […]

Wendell of Dell on Movies is revisiting the “Against the Crowd” Blogathon – where us film connoisseurs can vent our spleens regarding overrated and underrated films. Here are the rules if you wish to take part: […]

I recently re-watched Super Size Me (2004, dir. Morgan Spurlock), a documentary film about our troubled relationship with a certain red and yellow fast food restaurant chain, and one man’s quest to push his body to the limit of its saturated fat intake. A synopsis: While examining the influence of the fast food industry, Morgan […]

If I can promise you one thing about House (1977, dir. Nobuhiko Obayashi), it’s that this will be one of the most bizarre horror movies you will ever experience. It’s a cult film that must be seen to be believed. Six schoolgirls (with ridiculous nicknames) travel to a girl named…

The fifth in the Mission: Impossible film franchise, Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation (2015, dir. Christopher McQuarrie) is a fast-paced and action-packed tale of two groups trying to out-espionage one another. Its synopsis is as follows: Ethan and team take on their most impossible mission yet, eradicating the Syndicate – an International rogue organization as […]

01-Doc-no-Jap

I’ve mentioned it a million times before, but my partner is a massive James Bond fan, and is probably the most fanatical Bond fan I have ever known in my entire life. He does a marathon of the films approximately twice per year (sometimes more), and since we live together, I generally get to marathon […]
