You should think of a myspace account as a funny tshirt slogan, and myspace as a pub, and the other people on it as coils of wire, pulsing slightly as they whisper the names of the dead.

You should think of a facebook account as your face, and facebook as a huge mincing machine, and the other people on it as a huge dead mass exerting their gravitional pull on you from just behind the mincing blades.

You should think of a twitter as a little plate with some kitchen roll spread out on it and dampened and each twitter account as a single spire of cress slowly rising out of it and each comment on it as some kind of cancerous growth on your stalk and your twitter feed is where your growths and some of your neighbours growths intertwine and draw you nearer even though the last thing you ever wanted to do was be near them or anyone else anywhere in the world, and especially not on this plate, on this window ledge by the back door.

I very nearly exclaimed aloud, "NUNS REVERSE", when the lizard nuns appeared but managed enough self control to not do this awful thing.

cf. the time it took me about a year to work out why a man had exclaimed aloud, "Down with this sort of thing", at the trailer to Green Room.

the haidmaiden - park chan wook film based on that bbc two series from about ten years ago where sally hawkins was a lesbian thief in victorian london, but now instead of london its korea somewhere before the second world war. it was pretty good but not as good as oldboy, which is probably my review of all park chan wook films (except for oldboy, obviously)

i watched the short version (2 and half hours) but theres a long version also(3 hours), which presumably has 30 more minutes of interminably sexy sex scenes.

also in korea this film is called agassi yet it contains no tennis at all

train to busan - zombies on a train. this was really good for an hour and a half, and then it basically ends, and then it starts up again and there's an entirely superfluous and basically rubbish last half hour and you might as well turn it off after 1 hour 23 minutes rather than watch any of the rest

also this was directed by the man that directed this film that massively depressed me a couple of years ago

I just watched the king of pigs, an absolutely astonishingly depressing korean cartoon about kids getting bullied at school. Included a scene where a cat gets stabbed to death, which even in cartoon form isn't something I really wanted to see

Baron Blood - another Mario Bava horror film that looks absolutely amazing, great colours and locations and outfits, but manages to be really slow and boring instead of good. Damn you Mario Bava.

The City of the Dead - luckily this was GREAT and made up for Baron Blood. An American student, being taught history by Christopher Lee, goes to Massachusetts to research witchcraft for her studies. Just in time for the annual sacrifice! jabba972.gif I loved this, it's full of great characters and SO much fog. Christopher Lee does an American accent for some reason but he does a pretty good job.

It's directed by Tarsem Singh, who I'm mildly obsessed with for some reason. He also directed The Fall and Mirror Mirror which are also both astonishing looking films (and The Cell, which I haven't seen, and also the video for 'Losing My Religion') but he seems to be one of those directors who is only good at one thing (making every scene look good) at the expense of everything else (plot, pacing, etc). And Immortals is particularly lacking in everything else. If somebody gives him a film with a good story to work on at some point then I suspect it will be the davegrowl.jpg.


I just watched The Cell, a mere 4.5 years after mentioning it here.

It looks amazing again, and is much, much better than Immortals was, but somewhat suffers in that the main two actors are Jennifer Lopez and Vince Vaughn, which is one of the least appealing acting pairings of all time

BUT a significant chunk of it feels like a cross between Hellraiser and a Smashing Pumpkins video which is obviously a good thing

permanent vacation - jim jarmusch's first film, in which a man wanders around abandoned and burnt out building sin late 70s new york, meeting various strangers, for an hour. it was wonderful, and had a really great strangely unsettling atmosphere, and an excellent.gif soundtrack (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7U8ieJaC4Xg )

Down by law - another 80s Jim jarmusch film that I've never seen before. Tom waits, john lurie and roberto benigni escape from jail and bumble around in a swamp for an hour or so. This was pretty brilliant
