    Chronicle, Adaptation, and The Gauntlet:
    http://deadshed.blogspot.co.uk/2013/...s-writing.html

    1) Teens get superpowers in this found footage flick written by Max Landis.
    2) A double dose of Nicolas Cage as screenwriter Charlie Kaufman and his fictional twin brother.
    3) Old school tough-as-nails action comedy featuring Clint Eastwood, Sondra Locke, and a shit-load of bullets.

    The Case of the Bloody Iris (Giuliano Carnimeo, 1971) DVD Review:
    http://deadshed.blogspot.co.uk/2013/...-giuliano.html

    An utterly sublime giallo - one of the very best of the era - starring Edwige Fenech and George Hilton. If you loved The Strange Vice of Mrs Wardh, you'll love this. Plenty of screenshots too.

    Taxidermia, and The Raven:
    http://deadshed.blogspot.co.uk/2013/...s-utterly.html

    1) A totally bizarre and grotesque (in a good way) Hungarian film about obsession (split into three tales) in which, among other things, a downtrodden soldier shags a bucket of pig meat and gets his John Thomas pecked by a Cock.
    2) An utterly average Gothic thriller where John Cusack plays Edgar Allan Poe (yeah, that does sound a bit strange, doesn't it?)

    I had such a hard time staying interested in this film, and it's not as though I find the subject matter bland...I don't know if I just wasn't giving the film its due attention, or it really was that stale.

    I very rarely give up on films - and I was close to giving up on this - even though I did ultimately watch the whole lot of it. So I'd say that in your case it was still the film's fault - it is rather plain and void of any intrigue or thrills. If anyone hasn't seen it - you ain't missing much.

    "Taxidermia" (2006), on the other hand, is so ickily bonkers that it's well worth watching ... it's pretty out there.

    I've definitely seen some buzz about it, good to know it's creepy! I'll definitely keep it in mind.

    Pro tip: Best not to watch it while eating.

    Not sure if you've covered this one, but I recently saw an quirky independent flick called "Safety Not Guaranteed" that I thought you might like. Nothing special, but a fun watch. Aubrey Plaza from Funny People and Parks and Rec stars.

    I'll keep that one in mind ... is it the one that somehow involves time travel? I think I read a review of that a few months back in Total Film - got a good write up. Will keep my eye out for it.

    Piranha 3DD, Mad Max Beyond Thunderdome, Seven Psychopaths, and The Five-Year Engagement:
    http://deadshed.blogspot.co.uk/2013/...ller-fish.html

    1) Pish killer-fish sequel.
    2) Plenty of pig shit and Tina Turner, but where did all the awesome car chases go?
    3) The follow-up to In Bruges.
    4) Jason Segel & Emily Blunt in a film from the folks that gave you Forgetting Sarah Marshall.

    and...

    Men In Black III, The Amazing Spider-Man, Brave, Lockout, Moonrise Kingdom, and Two Mules For Sister Sara:
    http://deadshed.blogspot.co.uk/2013/...gs-aliens.html

    1) Actually nowhere near as bad as I was expecting.
    2) Half-good, half-bad ... it's got Emma Stone in it though, and that's always a huge plus.
    3) Pixar flick - I had zero interest in it when it was announced, but I thoroughly enjoyed it in the end.
    4) Escape From New York in space.
    5) Wes Anderson film - so you should know what to expect.
    6) Clint, a Nun, a couple of Mules, and a ruddy long wait for a proper shoot-out.

    Lovely Molly, The Majestic, and City of God:
    http://deadshed.blogspot.co.uk/2013/...gs-lovely.html

    1) Low-fi horror from Eduardo Sanchez (The Blair Witch Project) - one shot in particular creeped-me-the-hell-out.
    2) Frank Darabont flick starring Jim Carrey as a blacklisted screenwriter losing his memory.
    3) Brazilian gangster flick set in the slums.

    Total Recall (2012):
    http://deadshed.blogspot.co.uk/2013/...ni-musing.html

    Total Remake gets the mini-musing treatment - will it be great, or will it be shite? Okay, one is far more likely than the other, let's face it...

    Anyone else given the 2012 version a viewing? What were your thoughts?
