Day 16: Star Trek Into Darkness [2013] – Third time’s the charm

I finally managed to watch the whole thing without falling asleep, and let me tell you one thing: it’s clearly the worst Star Trek movie ever.  Star Trek is supposed to be really boring and tedious, filled with annoying aliens.  This is none of those things.  It’s brilliant! Lots of action, pretty ladies, Robocops, Dredds, Sherlocks, Avatars, non-drama drama, overdone lens flare…  Highly recommended. Unless you love Star Trek, I guess.

Title: Star Trek Into Darkness
Director: Jay-Jay
Always remember:   KHAAAAN!
Score: 8/10
Drink of the day: Tea, Earl Gray, hot.

KHAAAAAN!

Khan?
Khoon…

Day 9: Attack The Block [2011]

 I didn’t have high hopes for this one, but boy, was my skepticism ever turned to, well, to enthusiasm?  Answer: Yes! Attack The Block is a good old-fashioned alien horror flick echoing long lost terrors of The Thing, War Of The Worlds and Cujo, in which a pack of criminal teenagers get chased by a pack of murderous space monkeys for an hour and a half, amidst a healthy helping of blood, guts and fireworks. Marvellous!

Title: Attack The Block
Director: Joe Cornish
For the scrapbook:   The teeth!
Score: 8/10
Drink of the day: …I forgot to hydrate!

Day 8: Saw 3D: The Final Chapter [2010]


The Saw-franchise takes an unexpected turn for the worse with Saw 3D. I’m a bit of a splatter aficionado, so liked the previous six movies, but this is like a clip show.  And what’s with the cheesy gore?  Those are clearly saussages ripping out of that lady’s belly at the start.  Were the other six movies this cheesy?  I don’t think so.  Maybe I should watch them all again…

“I watched it in 2D.”


Title: Saw 3D: The Final Chapter
Director: Kevin Greutert
Memorable moment:   The previous six movies
Score: 3/6
Drink of the day: O’Boy
