Frankenstein Must Be Destroyed

Bill and Ted while good, wasn't as good as I remembered. It does everything it needs to do in the set-up for the finale by the 45 minute mark, and so then we get a fairly flabby 20-30 minutes of trying to pad the film out. But it does earn its place as a cult movie.

Got to say, the Frankenstein was a truly fabulous movie though. Solid up until the end, where it pulls out an ending that first had me guessing and then (literally) cheering.

37 films watched to date. Horror (13 films) clearly outweighs every other category at the moment, which surprises me a bit, but then I do like a good (or really bad) horror film and I've been doing some catching up. It's also nice to see me finally catching up with a few of the more recent films. I've tended to miss a lot at the cinema.

It's fabulous. Most of the films in that run were good, but that's probably the stand-out. Star Trek is also very good, though the elements that annoyed me the first time around still annoyed me - but that's me being picky writer person - it's still a hell of a lot better than it had any right to be.

And I have no idea why I've been avoiding the Prestige. I know people have been raving about it and that it's probably a fabulous film, but early on I must have gotten some sort of impression that there were horror elements and I just switched off. Is it safe for someone who doesn't enjoy horror and people being nasty to each other to watch?

It's an awesome film. Loved the way it builds and shifts.
