I watched Fire in the Sky last night.

Wasn't very good, but it wasn't bad either. Wouldn't watch it again but if you're into your alien abduction movies then I would give it a whirl.


It's worth it for the abduction flashback scenes. First tme I watched it I was stoned and so paranoid afterwards that I made my then girlfriend turn on every light in the house and accompany me into to every room.


Makes a good double-bill with Communion, which is worth it for Christopher Walken being loopy in a spaceship too.

All I know about the "Bell" is that it's supposed test bed in Poland was proven to be a cooling tower holder.



But, there is also an underground facility near it which is where the experiments supposedly took place. No one has ventered into it fully because it is flooded and the entrances were detonated by the Nazis when they knew the war was lost.

Other evidence includes a power plant that was positioned near the site with power leads from the plant leading to the inside of the facility. Of course, this could be anything but it is to be noted that it did take a tremendous amount of power as I think ( might be wrong here ) that the power plant's only purpose was to power the facility.

Don't know much about it but this thread is a good starting point.

Googling 'Nazi Saucers' doesn't half bring up some entertaining stuff.

And some cool pics.

There is a story about a Nazi saucer/superjet which was left on a runway in Prague or somewhere in 1945. They tried to get it away but the Russians overran the airport before it could take off.

I was quite impressed that they designed a coal powered aircraft.

Watched the new (i think) British production 'psychosis' (2009).
I thought it was pretty good. It doesnt break any radical new ground for horror films, but I found it well paced, mostly well acted and...... fun.
Also it stars Charisma Carpenter, a few of you probably remember her, she puts in a fairly good performance and has aged pretty well ;)

Worth 90 minutes imo Smile

OSS117: Cairo Nest Of Spies


Latest in the series of the OSS117 films - french spy series that as novels was around before Bond. The current stories are spoofs of the spy genre instead of the straight played original stories.

Great film, it spoofs the 60's Spy/Bond Film thing perfectly. All the right nods to established ideas, a soundtrack that sounds like it was lifted from the 60's and a great cast who all pull it off.

Ice Station Zebra. Still the best English Language submarine film ever made.

SANJURO, a funny Kurosawa film. Also SHOW ME LOVE, a sweet and funny Swedish film about a gay girl and her unrequited crush. Recommended.

Isn't it odd, but looking at Charisma Carpenter's eminently do-able rump, all I can think is, 'I wonder if that pic was shot in one of the John Lautner houses I saw in that documentary the other night?'

Sanjuro is one of my favorite Kurosawa films, it is just beautifuly shot and so well paced. I went through a Kurosawa phase about 15 years ago, worked through a lot of his films, Sanjuro remains one of his best Smile

Killer of Sheep

Thick atmosphere, very immersive & engaging despite having a very loose narrative, I'd watch it again

Last week I saw GAINSBOURG. Well worth watching, and very funny.

Inception at the Imax last night.

In technical effects, probably the best I've ever seen. The rolling hotel gravity less fight was peerless.

Great story, although I felt it focused on Di Caprio's character slightly too much to the detriment of the other characters, would have loved to see more of Arthur and Weems.

And Hans Zimmer may be the best Composer in Hollywood. But he surpassed himself here.
It is one you want to go big on. I Probably wouldn't be raving so much if I'd watched it on a smaller screen. On Imax it just owns.

Also watched Fellini's Casanova this morning.

Ummmm. Interesting.

Same about Inception, it was pulled of brilliantly. The detraction was that it focused too much on De Caprio's character especially at the detriment to, er...... the short girl, the one from that Juno film.

Great to see Gordon-Levit in another film, he's going to be one of these new breed of leading men in the cinema.


Saw Toy Story 3, A-Team and Sorcerer's Apprentice aswell, but they are all standard fare.

Barefoot Gen.



This, along with Grave of the Fireflies, is essential viewing even for people who aren't interested in anime.
