The Underrated: Vice Squad

I was originally going to do a whole run of sleaze films for The Vault. However, that’s been cancelled as the 2 I’ve seen so far, Angel and this spectacular film, aren’t schlocky enough. If anything the reverse is true, as both of them turned out to be fine little films that have, in my opinion, been unfairly forgotten. I’m going to do my best to remedy that.

THE RUNAWAYS: JAILBAIT KICKS SOME MUSIC AND MOVIE ASS

I am not a “music” guy. Don’t get me wrong, I like music well enough, but it’s not that important to me like others around here. Blitz talks about bands and looks online for docs about bands. Stuntcock Mike is a musician that plays at least one instrument and is/has been in a band. Jarv worked in the music industry for years. To me that shows a passion for the subject that I lack. My taste runs to the mundane. I like what I like and most of that is on the Dean Winchester from Supernatural approved play list. I think most Rap, Emo/whiner rock, NuMetal, house, industrial, electronica, grind, trip-hop, boy bands, girl singers, modern country (I’m a big fan of 70’s era Outlaw Country) and every other sort of talentless, cynical money grab the music industry pushes nowadays is shit filled shit on a shit stick with a side of shit served on a shit plate.

Anyhow, on with this ultimately pointless attempt to define the top 10 of last decade. Read More…

From the Vault: Schlock in the 21st Century

This century hasn’t been kind to schlock. Needless to say, here’s a list of some I recommend and some I really, really don’t. Some of these I’ve already reviewed, some I haven’t. It’s not a top ten, rather just films from the bargain bucket that I think are worth a look. Read More…

Jarv goes to the EU and comes back with a searing hatred of red tape, rampant xenophobia but also the 10 best European movies of the decade

As part of my moronic round the world in films quest, I’m moving on to the continent, and I’m genuinly surprised by this list. Not because any of the films are left field, but because several of them make my overall best of the decade. Also, looking at the European films, I know that I’m forgetting loads, and haven’t seen some, but I was stunned to see that 5 of my potential 10 were British. Read More…
