Zombie Strippers! – 2008 – Jay Lee

Ping pong balls and flesh-eating strippers led by the infamous Jenna Jameson; that should be enough not to watch it. It opens with a humourous polemic against George Bush, misleading you into thinking that it’s going to be good, but ultimately ends up as a cloaked soft-porn movie. Brian Murray

Diary of the Dead – 2007 – George A. Romero

With elements of Night of the Living Dead, and Dawn of the Dead one would expect DofD to be good. There’s plenty of suspense, and well written dialogue, for a zombie movie, but if you’ve seen the aforementioned movies then there is nothing to be gained from watching this. Brian Murray

Naked Beneath The Water – 2006 – Sean Cain

A terrible movie about the unreality of reality TV. Some cynical TV executives exploit stupid idiots to fake a serial killer murder reality-TV show. Along the way their plan backfires and they get killed. Terrible as a bag of chips marinated in water for a week. Brian Murray

Timber Falls – 2008 – Tony Giglio

A couple of city slickers are befriended by a passer-by in the woods. When the stranger sees them doing the horizontal shuffle in their tent she decides to give them some good Christian wrath forcing them to marry so that she may steal the offspring. Story about average, redneck America. Brian Murray

Code Name: The Cleaner – 2007 – Les Mayfield

A stupid movie full of racist cliches about a cleaner who gets amnesia from a blow to the head leading him to believe that he is a super spy. Carries on in the vein of a Martin Lawrence movie, but with very little wit. The only respite is Lucy Liu. Brian Murray

Pink Floyd The Wall – 1982 – Alan Parker

I guess it’s the fallout of the vanity project that struck the 60s/70s super groups. Simply egostrokin’, proving that they can do it better than The Song Remains the Same, Sympathy For The Devil, and the appalling Tommy. Just another long music video, with a point (possibly) that escapes me. Brian Murray

The Thing – 1982 – John Carpenter

Kurt Russell as a boozing anti-hero pits his wits against alien most foul. Full marks for the monster, and the effects especially as this movie was made a quarter of a century ago. John Carpenter at his best. Watch out for the “crazy Norwegian.” Brian Murray
