    I should probably rewatch The Blair Witch Project at some point but Blair Witch (made a few years ago) didn’t help to enamour me to the franchise.

    I can understand your frustration with FWWM but I felt Sheryl Lee & Ray Wise delivered fantastic performances in a harrowing exploration of Laura’s life the week before she died.

    They're not acclaimed (but this thread seems to have long since given up the fiction that it's about that – it just seems to be about films you thought were shit, acclaimed or not): but all of Larry Clark's films. They all make out that anyone over the age of thirty is, by definition, a total tosser.

    So, kind of an amalgamation of; Rainbow, The Wizard of Oz and Ted Rogers 3-2-1...
    Incidentally Star Wars?
    Stars are very hot places I am led to believe, so how could anything survive on them?

    That Crouching tiger bollocks plus the rest of these martial arts flying though the air shite.
    1917. The main actor scrambles about through mud, blood and assorted shite only to look like he`s just walked out of a military outfitters at the end of the film.
