Raiders of the Living Dead (1986)
https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0138050/


A massive 2.2/10 on imdb - movie snobs

Opening with a hostage situation in a nuclear power plant the cops send in super trooper who makes hard work of handling a couple of goons

Cut to grandpa's home and he asks his nerdy grandson to fix his laserdisc player for him, the brat however manages to turn it into a laser weapon much to the disgust of his pet rat

Another cut to a newspaper reporter and his colleague who get a lead on some strange happenings on a remote island. He soon finds tout that a local scientist has been creating zombies.

Tie the last two parts together and the nerdy kid builds a weapon and with gramps goes a hunting the dead .... what's not to like


Love the theme tune

Default Lost in Space (1998)



I never followed the 1970s TV series, which I think used to be shown on BBC2 occasionally; so I didn't have any particular preconceptions.

This film has some fairly good actors in it but mostly they are wasted. Matt LeBlanc (Joey from Friends of course) has a shallow and silly part which suits him perfectly as the all-balls-and-no-brains spacecraft pilot, Major West. Just occasionally Major West shows he isn't empty of human spirit, most notably in a nice little interlude when the cute and unattached adult Robinson daughter [Heather Graham as Dr Judy Robinson] is overwhelmed and disoriented and frankly demoralised by the spectacle of an alien planet's night sky. Major West explains that this happened in history to the earliest European explorers who ventured into the Southern Hemisphere, and emulates the earlier mariners by inventing new constellations - Porky Pig and Bugs Bunny. This is just a little bit more sensitivity and more empathy than normal and totally in character, because naturally Major West has a professional interest in navigation. Of course he spoils it by making an unsubtle pass at the girl and getting a glass of water poured over him.

The two child actors playing the Robinson children are fine. None of the other adult players is at all bad, but the show stealer is certainly Gary Oldman as the sly and treacherous Dr Smith, a sabateur caught on the spaceship he intended to destroy and forced to seek a tenuous truce as a prisoner of people who know he tried to murder them. Oldman brings out the extremely dark humour of his character's personality, the man's cheerful acceptance of his own wickedness and remarkably accurate assessment of the individual traits of his captors. For entirely selfish reasons which he does not bother to pass off as anything other than totally selfish, Dr Smith saves the party more than once; and to their bitter annoyance he is simply too useful to shoot, even though its all his fault they are lost in space anyway.

I reckon about 5/10 and most of that because I thought the cast was not too bad.

It's passing strange, but I think I'm the only person on the entire planet who likes this film. I consistently give it 10 'Danger Will Robinson's' up and having seen it a number of times, I still don't get why it's so villified. IMHO, one of the best scifis ever.

The Autopsy of Jane Doe (2016)
https://www.imdb.com/title/tt3289956/


Brian cox and Emile Hirsch, play a father and son both coroners who are tasked with solving the death of a young woman whose naked body is found buried in a crime scene.
The autopsy gets more sinister as they uncover not just a series of shocking facts about the state of the body, it nicely builds up the tension as a supernatural element slowly starts to emerge.

Just watched the trailer and it's got the same Z movie feel as The Video Dead (1987). Awesome poster btw.

Ready Player One.
Yes, it's twenty minutes too long; and it's got plot holes you could drive a road train through, but gees Spielberg can still make an entertaining blockbuster. Best video game I've never played.

The entertainment value in this film is all about Dr. Smith.

This is a case of a great actor making a silk purse out of a sow's ear. Jonathan Harris played Dr Smith in the television series as a Paul Lynde type closeted gay poltroon, who really should be kept away from Will Robinson, for heaven's sake, but Oldman as they say "takes the character in another direction"

Oldman finds a sinister vein in him that isn't camp, its genuinely malignant, while at the same time having some affection for the Robinsons. You can Oldman's character to Paul Reiser's corporate weasel in Aliens . . . but Oldman brings a lot more gravitas to the role.

The strange casting choice here is William Hurt, who is no kind of heroic leading man, sucks the life out of the movie.

You're definitely right there...and the hybrid version of him still gives me the creeps. Parker Posey as the latest incarnation though is the bee's knees. A totally amoral individual. It's a shame the show turned out to be rubbish.

Zootopia. Surprisingly good. Is there actually such a film genre as fluffy bunny noir?
