Terminal came out this year. I don't always see the new films, and dropping Netflix DVD will mean I see less. I'll have to rely on Amazon Prime for my allotment of crappy new SF movies in the future. Terminal isn't SF, it's more fantasy. A revenge film with a hint of Alice In Wonderland. It's written and directed by Vaughn Stein. It's his first movie as a director, he'd been 2nd Unit Director or Assistant Director on over 20 other films, some of note. Vaughn's heavy with the style. It looks cool but for a while in the middle he forgets to move the story along at an appreciable rate. While the film is stylish it's not anywhere as stylish as Tears Of The Black Tiger was the other day. When you get down to the core of the story, there's an abused woman who's killing all sorts of people for revenge, and she's bat shit crazy. Reminds one to mind what they do. I didn't mind watching it but I wouldn't need to go buy myself a copy to watch again someday.
I would buy a copy of Alien Autopsy but only if it was really cheap. It's a 2006 British film that's got one of the few times Jimmy Carr tried acting. Don't give up your day job Jimmy. Ant and Dec play the two guys who originally brought the Alien Autopsy film to the world. I remember that happening, it was back in 1995, and Ray Santilli and Gary Shoefield tried to fool the world with a faked reconstructed film of an alien autopsy at Roswell in 1947. The movie version makes it all out to be a rather silly story and while there's a laugh or two, it could use more jokes. Jonny Campbell is the director and William Davies is the writer. Jonny was the director of The Casual Vacancy and many other British TV programs, including a couple of episodes of Doctor Who. Not much comedy there. William is more know for writing comedies, maybe the most famous are Twins, the two Johnny English movies with Rowan Atkinson, Puss In Boots, and the first How To Train Your Dragon film.
