Less movies than usual given the Euro 2012 football. There gas been less out to see and I have skipped a few movies I would have seen if not for the football. I have still managed eight movies including a locally made documentary and a reissue of a horror classic that I hadn’t previously seen.
Fast Girls: As predictable and clichéd as you would expect of a sports movie, despite this, it is surprisingly good. Noel Clarke is fast becoming the most significant person in the British film industry.
The Last Projectionist: A charming and informative documentary about cinemas centring on the oldest working cinema in the UK, The Electric in my home city, Birmingham.
Plague of the Zombies: Reissue of the 1966 Hammer Horror. An atmospheric horror that perfectly bridges the gap between early zombie films and there reinvention in the 70’s.
The Movie of the Month is:
The Last Projectionist. Essential viewing for film fans, I’m not sure what sort of release it will get but go see it if you can.
