I absolutely hate children's movies and Disneyfied nonsense about happy brats. However I absolutely adore movies about horribly delinquent kids with fractured decimated childhoods (Don't try to psychoanalyze me bitch)

And of course if it's by Neil Jordan (or as I like to call him, the bloody Mick), there's gonna be some disturbing shit going on in the movie.

Ay there is here with the wee ginger lad in the film. Eamonn Ownes gives a stunning performance as the psychotic and raged filled Francie Brady, a boy who just can't get a break and whose idea of a fun day out is attempting to strangle weaker classmates with a metal chain and attacking pedo priests who force him to wear bonnets.

Sounds brilliant right? Let me highlight my fav aspects of this masterpiece:

- Francie hallucinating visions of holy angels in random places but it's actually schizophrenia

- Francie destroying then shitting in the home of his most hated neighbour

- Francie working at a butcher's for extra $ and having deep heart to hearts with pig carcasses

- Francie chugging whiskey alone on a darkened beach while screaming and swearing and having a mental breakdown

What an adorable wee bairn. This is a ginger with hella soul.

A bizarre and demented movie, and a memorable and excellent portrait of youthful isolation and deprivation. It's tragic, comedic, satirical and depressing and will make you laugh and crave early death at the same time.

This remake obviously doesn't exceed the power of the original, and I don't think Tom Savini was trying to do that anyways. This version is more like a reinterpretation of the original and still has the ability to frighten the piss out of the viewer for sure.

My fave aspect of the movie:

Tony fuckin' Todd

Dude is an amazing actor, who I've loved ever since I saw him in Candyman. His presence and acting ability are fantastic, and he has a commanding and hypnotic voice that spellbinds the viewer. A more than worthy Ben to follow up Duane Jones' A+ acting in the original.

I like how they powered up Barbara's character too because she was such a frail weakling in the original.

Overall though, the 68 version is the winner because the black and white ominousness and atmosphere are unbeatable, whereas here the film can go from brutal and scary to hilariously campy, especially when Harry starts screaming at his wife to get back in the basement and grabs her 500 times.

Literally a character just devoted to yelling at everyone especially his poor wife it's disturbing at first then lmao and overdone.

I give this 7 splattered brains on the pavement out of 10 decomposed zombie corpses

Picnic (1956)

This is one of those movies that was daring in its time, but comes off as sappy and overblown now.

It's another one of those 1950s "whiny drifter comes into small town and fucks shit up" little whirlwinds.

ex: The Chase, The Wild One, The Long Hot Summer, A Face in the Crowd, Rebel Without a Cause, The Fugitive Kind, etc etc etc

William Holden looks a way bit past his prime though he was like 37 in this rip... He's supposed to be smoulderingly sexual or some shit and have all the chicks in town wild for his D but tbh he comes across as someone's tired old uncle LOL.

Kim Novak plays a repressed and terrified chick who always makes sad faces anytime someone talks to her.

Shit happens and Billy H gets his shirt ripped and the town gets upset etc.

No, there is no Marlon Brando coming into town on a cool motorbike.

It all gets tiresome after awhile.

However I really liked cute lil Susan Strasberg as the nerd intellectual sister.

Very adorable and my fave character in the movie.

Georgy Girl (1966)

Story: Lynn Redgrave is dumpy.

Look at her. She is so plain! Like totally omg! She doesn't wear makeup and groom well!

She is different from other girlies, wowie.

Oi m8, this was rebellious in 1966 England.

So there she is, poor ugly Georgy Girl. Can she ever find love? Or is she too ugly?

So funny seeing James Mason playing another pedo creep, like he did in Lolita. They gave that manz the creepiest roles for some reason. Alan Bates is annoying AF in this.

And Charlotte Rampling?

Cool as usual. Ice fucking cool.

I, Tonya (2017)

What I learned from this movie:

If your boyfriend really loves you, he'll break a bitch's legs for you.

But seriously though. Here we have the opportunity for a brilliant and honest biopic that covers trashy Tonya Harding's checkered legacy as... the craziest bitch in figure skating, and perhaps even all sports. Instead, this movie covers her ass and paints her as an innocent... Yes her boyfriend's goon bffl bashed up her rival's legs, but little Tonnie was not involved!

At all!

We know better, babe.

Still a quality movie though with fun uses of montages and hokey vintage pop music to highlight the absurdity of Tonya's mess of a life story. Margot Robbie is fantastic, and now I actually remember who she is bc before I confused her with Amber Heard lol I thought she was generic hot blonde but man can she A C T

Sooo... I barely watch movies anymore I'm dead af...... very lazy and disinterested but here I am, occasionally rambling about the sludge here and there I manage to slog through. I hope the audience of 0.0001 humans who reads this crap enjoys it aheh
