...and as long as it is grossly over-priced.

MIDWINTER OF THE SPIRIT (2015 uk)
female vicar reluctantly turned exorcist has her daughter targetted by cult-enemy of Christian church


THE NUN (2018)
Now this one is pretty good. Proper errie milieu - can't get spookier than a dilapidated convent/castle in the dark, misty Romanian woods.

THE DISASTER ARTIST (2018,us)

tRUE STORY.

jOE bLOW - WHOSE SOURCE OF WEALTH AND WHOSE NATIONALITY NO ONE KNOWS TO THIS DAY - wants terribly to become a hollywood movie star. But is a terrible (melodramatic) "actor".(He was in some sorta crash and talks a bit funny - occasionally dropping articles and pronouns.)

He teams up with a Tom Cruise look-a-like half his age and, after ter many humiliating rejection ,decides to produce,direct,script-write,act in his own movie , the drama,"The Room".
The script reads like a tired soap-opera written by two Jewish monkeys with a yo-yo between them.

It costs him 5 million to make this movie.

In real life, It was debuted a few years ago and first night made something like $1500.
The Room is so bad that , in time audiences believe it was made that way on purpose, as a broad burlesque. And it gains "stature" amongst the cult film crowd. Eventually recouping the loss.


So then.Shit.

Yet another movie that should never have been made.
Along this line, the Glen or Glenda-director movie with Johnny Depp and Martin Landau (in oscar-winning role) was much, much more interesting.

SAPPHIRE (1959,UK)
Sapphire is a beautiful young coloured woman, passing for white.

Movie starts with her dead body lying in a London park. Scotland Yard suspect her white boyfriend who only found out a week previous that she was coloured.

Very well done film about racial tensions.

FARENHEIT 451 (2018, us)

Directed and written by the same guy, this HBO re-make is a distinct FAIL.

Bad enough, that the main character, Montage, is now a niggah, the fuck about "updating" this classic so that its not just books being burned but e-books,internet... A new threat is added: OMNIS - the "eels" or literature-lovers have figured out a way to put all history's written words into human DNA, so that millions of "firemen" will be unable to eradicate the threat.


Francois Truffaut's 1966 adaptation - the first colour film he made - was a European production. Special effects minimal. Good film score. True to the novel.

Bradbury's world of the near future is a dark dystopia. This new version does not stress that enough. (for instance the movie version of 1984 works cos it is truely as dark as the Orwell novel).
The firemen in the '66 version are cold, emotionless-almost, as in the book. Here in this 2018 version we have gung-ho, back-patting stadia-chanting-like firemen. Almost as if the firemen are in some fucked sports event . It totally ruins it.

Also no stress on the melancholy of humanity -present in all of Bradbury's short stories and novels - and the connection of literature to memory, nostalgia (which the '66 film gives towards the end.)


Blind Child believes that, were Ray Bradbury alive, he would denounce this thing.

Please America:

DO NOT TOUCH CLASSICS! You fucked-up the Haunting. You fucked-up The Wickerman. You fucked-up The Prisoner.

Now this.

MR ROBOT SEASON 3

This totally DRAGS. Shit to nod-off to.Image
The main character puts you to sleep - talks like half-dead; like that depressed robot - Marvin???- in Life,The Universe and Everything.

Blind Child could only stomach two episodes and told the rest to fark off.


No need. Everything that needed to be said was said in season one.

GHOST STORIES

Got eur flood of EMs arskin' me to review this.


World o' despair.
Eur dreary seaside caravan park i' off-season winta wi' t' seeur erodin t' coast reet up teur t' shittay caravans...makes for an errie atmospheear. as does t' basement o' t' long-abandoned women's asylum. (but why thee need eur neet security guard ther's beyon' uz.)

Prof Goodman is eur professional debunka o' orl things paranormal, o' medium frauds 'n occult trickeries. 'e 'as 'is own telly program. Bur 'is skepticism soon changes afta 'e receives eur file o' three macabre, unexplicable ghostly doings.
Wha' is mooar disturbin ,is 'a' thee seem ta point i' eur direction o' avin summa' ta doa wi' Goodman's past.

The file is sent by Goodman's "god" - eur paranormal investigator o' um renown whoa is an owd bloke naw dyin a' sez rundown seaside caravan. Goodman arrives ta onny be insulted by t' owd bloke. Bur beefwhooar 'e leaves t' owd forma skeptic pleads 'a' Goodman skeg intoa these three unique cases 'n please cum back 'n prove 'a' thee wor indeed false.

Cocksuckers, if theur want gooar 'n action - nip on ta fookin' Americeur, ye guineas. Theur won't gerr it 'eear.

Eur slow-burna wi' lotteur dead-space 'n reeight lahl effects. Wi' minimal sha o' t' "ghosts". Indeed, as t' surprize endin goes, thee wor not ghosts int' fust place.

Soa then,me littul chuffs, 'ow does Blin' Bairn rate it?

Pretty well.....Image
