Father's Day (2011) ***1/2

Maybe this is getting a rating as high as it is because I saw it with the right audience, with Lloyd Kaufman present, but this was a whole lot of fun. Pretty much everything you want from a Troma film, with even a little bit more style and "substance". Bizarre, nonsensical and hilarious.

Check out the sweet poster by Tom "The Dude Designs" Hodges.

Merry Christmas Mr. Lawrence (1983) ***1/2 [CC Night #19]



Dead Alive (Braindead) (1992) ***1/2

Loved this when I was 10 years younger.
Still a lot of fun, but pretty awful really, in a fun way.
Gore galore. :)



Amer (2009) ****

I was dying to see this again and finally bought the Blu-ray, thanks to an Amazon gift card from Mum.




Recommended if you enjoy hypersensitivity, minimal dialogue, extreme close-ups, over-accentuated sound design, Mario Bava, close-ups of eyes, absence of narrative, Gialli, beautiful brunettes, creepy dudes, Alejandro Jodorowsky, "artsy-fartsy" films, fetishistic close-ups of female anatomy in sundresses, David Lynch.

Winnie The Pooh (2011) ***1/2

Really enjoyed this.
I'm glad they didn't try to modernize it (other than the songs, which were mostly great).
Simple, with beautiful, hand-drawn animation.
