Just Pillow Talk’s Birthday Nightmare: John Q (2002)

Wow, this is a fucking awful film. In a list as shitty as this one, with so many absolutely terrible films in it, it really takes something special to stand above the crowd. Well, John Q is that film, a message film with no redeeming features. Although it has made Pillows apply for membership of the Republican Party in retaliation.

Here’s Just Pillow Talk shredding insipid piece of garbage John Q for his birthday nightmare.

That is all.   Read More…

Just Pillow Talk’s Birthday Nightmare: The Mighty Quinn (1989)

No preamble from me this time, other than for me to say that I’m astonished to find out that The Mighty Quinn isn’t an eskimo, rather a large Jamaican dude. Music lied to me. Anyhow, here’s Just Pillow Talk with his latest disgrace to celluloid for our enjoyment (I hope there’s a tiger in a hat):

So after a few days with the family away visiting the aquarium, seaport, and assorted beaches, I feel my mind has recovered enough to once again try and tame the untamable…to climb the unclimable, to piss into the wind and not get wet…let’s get ready to ruuuuuuuumble!

To prove it can be done Jarv lists 10 actually good remakes.

Remakes, eh? The lazy hack’s adaptation format of choice. Seriously, why bother going to all the trouble of coming up with a new idea, and then writing it, filming it and then marketing it to people who have never heard of it when you can pick a classic/ popular title off the shelf and routinely sodomise it on-screen for the vicarious pleasure of the cretinous plankton who intermittently tear their eyes off their vital text message to cast their listless gaze on a film that once fired the imagination being used and soiled like a Thai hooker with self-esteem issues. Particularly guilty are all those hideous Carpenter remakes, which, let’s face it, only exist to keep the man knee-deep in mediocre weed and shitty KFC. Nevertheless, it isn’t impossible to craft an actually good remake (and The Departed is not a good remake). To prove it- here are 10 in no particular order that are all quality, and some of which surpass the original. Read More…

The Birthday Series – The Manchurian Candidate (2004)

Droids Birthday Series 2004At a risk of repeating myself, I’m counting down to my birthday by reviewing one movie that was released on or around August 2nd for every year I’ve been a booze-addled degenerate. Have a gander at 2005.
