The lead bad dude was Zubin off Holby City

And probably #2 should be for what happened to the twelve year old Eliza Dushku: https://www.theguardian.com/film/2018/j ... er-aged-12

I'm sure I remember a less family-friendly cut being available...


It's been uncut in the UK since the 2010 DVD release. VHS and DVD releases prior to that were cut (and not very professionally at that).

This is one of the DVDs I bought from the States back in the day as I didn't want to get the cut UK version.

EDIT - Although there were no cuts for language.

Ready or Not: super entertaining 94 minutes of black comedy. Well worth it.

True Lies is another one of those films that, if I find it when I'm flicking through the TV channels, I have to watch to the end.

PROJECT POWER, new release on Netflix.

Me and Mrs Hearthly watched it last night.

Decent cheesy fun, fairly interesting premise, bit of a hodge podge of themes and ideas but it moves along at such a clip you won't mind too much. (Probably just as well as it doesn't much stand up to any sort of scrutiny.)

You could do a lot worse for a couple of hours.

660/1000

Project Power was alright, standard action fair with the budget versions of Denzel and DiCaprio.

Finally watched Gran Torino last night.

Not what I expected at all, but at the same time it was simply brilliant. Absolutely loved every minute.

We watched this. I loved it. I really did. I was fully expecting to think ‘well that was an entertaining bit of rubbish’ but I think the production values (in comparison to something like Sharknado, which yes, I watched) were high enough for me to just really enjoy the ride. I stood in some fossil megalodon jaws for a picture when I was a kid, so I have always been fascinated at the sheer size of the things.

And Statham punches it.

In the face.

Looks more like Gotham. I'm in. The Nolan trilogy was awful.

Parasite. Rich people, poor people. But who is the parasite?

Rogue. People. Lions. But which is rogue?

The former is brilliant. And I saw it in a cinema - no idea how many people were in there with me, as my seat was in the front and I didn't turn round. Did get a little misty-eyed during the adverts. Cinema! 100 bananas.

The latter is terrible. Megan Fox plays the lead, an incredibly bad-assed mercenary, with full-character and body not developed, but dropped straight into a raid on some bad guys. You know things are serious when she breaks into a slow jog, and you know she can win any fight despite no obvious muscle tone at all. There are some other characters, but none of them pout at a lion, so who cares?
Among those characters, so you know, is a displaced Brit and a couple of young girls who have to be extra-irritating early on just so they can be obviously seen to learn something from their experience. There's also one who can't even scream convincingly, let alone deliver the clunking dialogue.
It doesn't really earn the right to try and teach you about man's inhumanity to nature, but what you'll learn from it is interesting nonetheless.

Tremendous, rubbish, fun. 75 bananas.
