Brain Damage Dual Format Review ****-

Cert 18 | 86 mins | 1988

4 star return of the classic eighties gore fest.
Brain Damage was originally released in 1988 and is written and directed by the supremely bonkers Frank Henenlotter (Basket Case, Frankenhooker). It is, quite magnificently, one of his weirder offerings and it certainly isn’t for the faint hearted.

I.T. DVD Review ***--

Cert 15 | 95 mins | 2017

3 stars, unpolished but good idea.
I.T. is written by Dan Kay (Pay The Ghost, Timber Falls) and William Wisher Jr. (Judge Dredd, Terminator 2: Judgement Day) and directed by John Moore (The Omen, Behind Enemy Lines). Given this pedigree, the Swiss cheese nature of certain major plot elements is something of a surprise.

Tampopo Review *****

Cert 15 | 114 mins | 1985

5 stars of genius foodie comedy.
Tampopo was first released in Japan in 1985, written and directed by the immensely talented and insightful Jûzô Itami (A Taxing Woman, The Last Dance). It is described as a “ramen western”, a delightful poke at the spaghetti westerns of old, except that this time there are actually noodles!
“I’ve got a bad feeling about this.…more
