Image

With an excess of gross-out gags (pimple popping; sea-bound turds) and too many jokes at the expense of the titular pair getting stiff, this is not a terribly appealing movie and Harry Endfield is downright odious as the rude and insensitive Kevin. Kathy Burke fares better as Perry, but most of that comes down to knowing that she is an actress and how credibly she plays a boy. Both look too old though to be playing characters half their age.

Thanks for hosting clemmetarey.

FTV:1: Bloody New Year (1987) UK. 7.

Ending their set on a high note, Indicator fill the disc with detailed extras, including new a commentary with Warren & BFI film historian Jo Botting, (bet Warren never imagined that the BFI would hold a "season" screening his films!) and in dealing with inconsistent film stock, sand down the roughest edges in their great 2K transfer, whilst keeping the soundtrack clean.

Facing tight limits placed on by producer Maxine Julius, (from no time being given to write more than one draft, turning down any actors who did not live nearby,and keeping a close count on how many reels of film were used)co-writer/(with Hayden and Frazer Pearce) directing auteur Norman J. Warren presents a fitting, late coda to the era of British "New Wave" Horror.Closely working with cinematographer John Shann and co-writer Frazer Pearce standing in as a set designer, who made sets out of any scraps he found, Warren plays a lively, ramshackle Punk Rock atmosphere, using the real empty hotel location for messy,use anything around shocks, turning the tables on the guests with possessed netting, ghosts caked in thick practical effects and a table which turns into a monster!

Even under the conditions placed, Warren still finds space for his distinctive style to shine, surrounding the group of pretty young things with surreal flashing neon lights,melting into rapid-fire long panning shots of the ghostly old guests giving the new arrivals a special welcome.Backed by a breezy soundtrack of 50's Rock and 80's synch, the writers tune into this sound with a screenplay that takes the body count of Slasher flicks, and wonderfully twist it into Warren's creepy, surreal supernatural time-warp, which keeps the guest held in a bloody new year.

Entwinings and restrictions; social realism of an urban Scottish housing estate and Celtic mythological dangers of attraction for young Fergal and Petronella in the low-budget but gripping and explorative 'Outcast'; I love how one IMDb reviewer who happens to frequent these parts described it as ''a cauldron of angst and desire''.

Image

21. 'Outcast' / 2010, Colm McCarthy / 8/10 / UK | Ireland
22. 'How to Be Happy' / 2013, Michael Rob Costine, Mark Gaster, Brian O'Neill / 6.5/10 / Ireland
23. 'Soulsmith' / 2017, Kevin Henry / 6 or 6.5/10 / Ireland
24. 'Jayo' / 2018, Ronan O'Donoghue / 8/10 / Ireland
25. 'Ibiza: The Silent Movie' / 2019, Julien Temple / 7/10 / UK

The iconic Dublin gaelic footballer of the 1990s and 2000s Jason Sherlock who reminisces, revisits, and explores his sporting career and his Chinese and Irish backgrounds to powerful and compelling effect in 'Jayo'; the forthright honesty and awareness with which he touches upon his successes and his failings make for a raw and touching journey and a documentary that is pulsing with heart.

The "sequel" (following a suppoerting character from The Stud), but this never get out of Pulp Fiction territory. Rich people having orgies.

I do have Up Pompeii (both the movie and TV series) on DVD, so I might see those later this month. But diesn't really find Frankie Howerd all that funny.

43. Confessions from a Holiday Camp (1977) Norman Cohen, UK 27 checks [double]
There's one family starring in all these movies, every one is switched with the new plot. So the strangest thing is when someone plays different roles in two movies when they are canonical in sequence. At the end they even mention what the next will be about. In this last one he mentions plumbers but there were no more movies. But the Adventures- movies which was made in the same period made a Plumber movie the next year instead.
44. Adventures of a Plumber's Mate (1978) Stanley A. Long, UK 18 checks [double]
45. Adventures of a Private Eye (1977) Stanley A. Long, UK 18 checks [double]
Same actor and director, but not really sequels.
46. Secrets of a Door-to-Door Salesman (1973) Wolf Rilla, UK 2 checks [double]
It was never a Secrets- series. Probably a good thing, Adventures, Confessions, Carry On and Up were more than enough.

Hi everyone, I just want to annonce that I'll stop keeping track of the director, it is way more time consuming that I thought (I spent 1h30 last time updating it). Sorry about that, I hope it's fine with you. If someone really wants to keep track of it I can sent him the word document I have.

14. The League of Gentlemen (Basil Dearden, 1960)
An enjoyable police action crime caper.

15. Peterloo (Mike Leigh, 2018)
An extraordinarily successful history movie. An immediate entry in my 2010s list and, next year, in my 500<400 list. I confess that despite having a graduate degree in history (and even doing my "minor field" in modern European history), I know little specific about pre-20th century British history. That is to say, I know the broad contours but not individual events. The episode depicted in this movie was unfamiliar to me, though I knew enough to understand the context of post-Waterloo political unease among the aristocracy, the rise of the bourgeoisie, the social/political effects of the industrial revolution, and the incipient expansion of the franchise. (I did read all three volumes of Hobsbawm's 19th century trilogy, after all).

Anyway, there were many aspects of this movie that I loved (the acting, the politics, etc.) , but I want to point out two that set it apart:
- First, though many history movies strive for accuracy, Peterloo goes to extraordinary lengths. It's hard to think of what I saw as anything but a perfect recreation of Regency England.

- Second, Peterloo avoids the trap of depicting historical events within the typical narrative contours of cinema. What I mean by this is that when movies typically depict the past, they often produce a teleological feeling. And that's hardly surprising because we know what will end up happening--Lincoln is killed, Robert the Bruce wins at Bannockburn, the D-Day invasion is successful. But because filmmakers naturally want to have tidy, efficient, compelling narratives, when they depict historical events, they often make history itself seem tidy and efficient. They also make history seem teleological--events that occur seem designed to reach an endpoint. But human events are not like that. They are messy, uncertain, and contingent. Spielberg's Lincoln occurred to me as a worthy comparison because, while I think it's an excellent history movie, everything in the narrative is very neat. We know the 13th Amendment will be passed, and what we see either leads us to that point, illuminates character, or heightens the drama. This is not a criticism--it makes for a compelling movie. But it elides that messiness and uncertainty that actually characterizes momentous historical events. Peterloo embraces the uncertainty and messiness, and the result is certain to bore some watchers. The movie is long, there's a lot of talking, and an endless array of characters who are hard to keep track of. But the story feels a bit more authentic. Just to give an example, one of my favorite moments came during a scene depicting a meeting of a reform society. One attendee, a poor mill worker, twice interrupts the orators to complain that she can't understand what they're saying because their petit bourgeois language is too highfalutin. The result is a very disjointed scene, but it feels more authentic while subtly suggesting the tensions that easily arise among cross-class political efforts.

But at the bottom, the immanent philosopher sees in the entire universe only the deepest longing for absolute annihilation, and it is as if he clearly hears the call that permeates all spheres of heaven: Redemption! Redemption! Death to our life! and the comforting answer: you will all find annihilation and be redeemed!

Male dysfunction and lack of communication; death, re-connection, and the chance of redemption spurred by the arrival of an aunt; Lisa Harrow and Des Cave in Kevin Liddy's lyrical and contemplative 'Country'; a film featuring some of the most sensuous, Malickian cinematography in Irish cinema; a tactile paean to the expanses of rural Ireland with a slow-burning sensitivity at its intimate heart:

Image

26. 'Country' / 2000, Kevin Liddy / 8.5/10 / Ireland | UK
27. 'Ordinary Decent Criminal' / 2000, Thaddeus O'Sullivan / 6/10 / Ireland | Germany | UK | USA
28. 'When Brendan Met Trudy' / 2000, Kieron J. Walsh / 5 or 5.5/10 / UK | Ireland
29. 'Brooklyn' / 2015, John Crowley / 9/10 / UK | Canada | Ireland
30. 'Scéal na Beatha' / 'Story of a Life' / 2019, Mairéad Ní Thréinir / 7 or 7.5/10 / Ireland | UK

Saoirse Ronan in 'Brooklyn' and dancing with her Italian beau; I think she so beautifully taps into the Irish collective consciousness on loss and the hopes and dreams for rebirth and success in new and exciting surrounds; that blossoming of confidence is so sensitive and heartwarming in its details and humanity; a wonderful and absorbing film from John Crowley but made even more rewarding by the young Irish actress at its centre:

The plot does exactly add up here, but this film is adequately entertaining once the central heist gets underway. Unfortunately, this is not until halfway in, and with vomit gags, fart jokes and laughs at the expense of phallic objects, the first half of the film is woefully even and often unfunny. The camaraderie between the characters is great throughout though, and a young and feisty Emma Williams is particularly charming.

Is The VVitch: A New-England Folktale (2015) eligible ?

Director is American but I found it in a personal UK IMDB list of someone...
I know New England is in USA but wonder if it has something to do with the place being filmed ?

EDIT: NVM, looked it up and it's got nothing to do with UK at all.
