Well a few months ago me and the girl decided to have a stab at some pound shop DVDs, though we only managed to watch them in the last three days. Some fucking awful titles amongst them (what did I expect I know yeah). Camp Blood - not entirely sure if it was our monitor playing up but the blood was orange, and it was a very very silly film from start to finish with alot of 'twists' borrowed from bigger budget films making the film quite predictable. 666 - The Demon Child had a few scares here and there, an extremely dull opening scene, but what stood out amongst everything was the irritating sound that the demon child made. The sound goes on and on and its not the slightest bit fear amplifying. Strange Things Happen at Sundown with a mixture of vampires and mobsters proved to be an unforgivably bad idea for a film, though gave some light laughs with Reaper's (who wears strippy socks) wife being a control freak, finding the smallest things to shout at him for.

Then Skinned Deep and Skinned Alive which just left me asking so many questions about the plot, that I virtually lost interest and started playing Klondike on my ipod after 30 minutes.

Skinned Deep is weird. Only really worth it for Warwick Davies and the kid getting sliced in half about 20 mins in..

What amused me about the film was its DVD cover. "A new icon of terror for a new generation of fear, meet the surgeon general." Now not to sound like a total horror movie buff, but in most films the icon for better words, is remarkably hard to kill, and always comes back, yet the family of absolute nuttahz in this film seemed to fold relatively easy. Even the ending of the film was fucking odd.

500 days Of Summer

a very well made film, if not a bit depressing, still i found it quite funny 8/10

a shame the end wasn't a nice one , but it made it that more realistic

I watched Invictus yesterday, purely on the basis of it having Morgan Freeman in it who is one of my favourite actors.

Well worth a watch - really moving film. And it gets bonus points for the fact its predominantly based around rugby (its the story of Nelson Mandela's attempts to unite South Africa in the run up to the 1995 Rugby World Cup) which is a sport I don't really understand, and it still maintained my interest all the way through.

And reading the last two lines of Invictus over the ending scenes was genius - "I am the master of my fate, I am the captain of my soul."

Just watched Observe and Report.
I'm not entirely sure what happened for the most part, but it had some funny moments and a pretty good performance from Seth Rogan.
But altogether it was quite predictable and forgettable.
3 out of 5, watch it if there's nothing else on.

Conspiracy Theory was an enjoyable bit of forgettable fluff and Ransom was great until the last few minutes when for some reason it went completely bollocks.

The box set in the shape of the cube box??? I've got that it's awesome - almost as great as my Phantasm box set in the shape of the spike ball!

Watched Moon last night, which was good but I'd be in no hurry to watch it again.

Just watched Pacino and DeNiro huff and puff their way thru' Righteous Kill - a dreary film

Sadly, no. Just the normal box. I could either pay £8.99 for that one of nearly £40 for the Lament Configuration box. I chose the cheaper version.
I've got enough fancy versions of CDs/DVDs already too. No more room! :lol:
