Hancock: Unrated: 3.5/5

A improvement on the theatrical cut as there's shades of a darker story, and more character development for Hancock.

Re: What general film/series have you just seen.. marks out of 5

Hancock: 3/5

Action comedy with Will Smith muddying his nice-guy persona (a bit) playing a down-on-his-luck, alcoholic superhero is an interesting idea and good fun, the darker stuff at the end feels like a different movie though

Score (Japan, 1995): 3/5

Entertaining actioner, felt like a hyped version of 90's B action from the US, if that makes sense.The DVD is pretty bad though.

Re: What general film/series have you just seen.. marks out of 5

Does Alex go back to his old ways at the end? It seemed like it at first because he no longer felt sick from sex and music, but then he said "I was cured, all right"

A Clockwork Orange (1971): 4/5

Worth watching but not an easy view. I thought Alex was a complete bastard but it's also hard to watch what happens to him later on.

Dirty Harry (1971): 4/5

Excellent cop thriller, great performance from Clint - is the sniper/killer supposed to be the Zodiac killer?

Jacob's Ladder (1990, USA): 4/5 Nightmarish, twisty thriller in which we can never be quite sure what's real - very well acted. Is Jacob actually, in fact, dead this whole time? Was he given drugs in Vietnam that caused him to imagine his whole life beyond that? I think the part when he goes 'up...

Re: What general film/series have you just seen.. marks out of 5

Flash Gordon (1980): 3/5 Camp and extravagant sci-fi romp is good fun but feels like a product of it's time, the 'low budget' (or it felt like it to me - but in fact it cost $35m which was a lot of money at the time), and colourful and excessive sets adds to its' charm somehow. Ornella Muti is way h...

Strangers on a Train - Preview/British version: 4/5

As per earlier review, not much changed that I can see but I think the 'Final Release' (Hollywood) version has a better ending.

Narc (2002): 4/5

Hadn't seen this in years. Dark action drama that really blurs the lines between good and evil, right and wrong. Jason Patrick and Ray Liotta are both excellent in it.

The Fifth Element (1997): 3.5/5

Visually extravagant sci-fi actioner is good entertaining fun, though how Chris Tucker got work after this film is anyone's guess - I know he's meant to be OTT but there's annoying and then there's his DJ character. Sheesh.

Baby Driver (2017, USA): 4/5

Entertaining actioner is much better than I thought it would be, with funny moments and a cracking soundtrack.

Drunken Master: 4.5/5

Classic kung-fu comedy, the print on the new Eureka disc is beautiful and I'd never heard the complete Cantonese track before.

Sin City (2005, Theatrical Cut): 4/5

A good watch, and often striking thanks to the clever cinematography with splashes of colour in an otherwise monochrome movie, but a bit of a "style over substance" movie imo. Sometimes it really is like watching a graphic novel.

Speaking of women who've aged very well... Lee Purcell is 70(!) http://c8.alamy.com/comp/JAF361/los-angeles-california-usa-5th-june-2017-lee-purcell-at-arrivals-for-JAF361.jpg And that's a recent photo. :o Bloody hell! She looks great, also at least 30 years younger. (Not heard of her before).
