I've walked out of Spawn, Mortal Kombat 2, Me, Myself and Irene, and King Kong (although I did end up going back into that one).

Jackson's Kong? I actually saw the 1976 version in the cinema, I'm assuming it was a repeat as I was one when it was released.

Jackson's 3hr self-indulgent, mistake-laden, poorly edited, bloated dullfest.

I enjoyed it in the cinema but on repeated vewings, not so much.

I liked the bug pit scene.
The rest of it not so much.

I hated that scene TBH, apart from the stampede scene it was the most obvious CGI use. Kong's emergence from the jungle to crash through the wall, however, was splendid.

I have not seen Ordet, but for me, 1955 goes:

1. The Night of the Hunter
2. Les Diaboliques
3. This Island Earth
4. Rebel Without a Cause
5. The Dam Busters


Respectable list. The Wages of Fear is my favourite Clouzot, but L.D is great.

I also rate East of Eden, Kiss Me Deadly, Lola Montes, Pather Panchali, Smiles of a Summer Night and a few others, but Order is king.

MK2 was shockingly bad. Spawn was shit too. Didn't walk out on them though.

Kong: Skull Island

4 fists of leave brain at home entertainment

Top Secret

Very very uneven for good jokes, extremely dated ones and others that just flop.

3 fists overall

I remember seeing Top Secret as a kid and - having virtually no movie experience of course - I remember being amazed at how such utterly shit jokes could pass for humour in a film.

MK2 was worse than the first one, which was a feat in itself...

There are a decent smattering of jokes - good ones too but it's incredibly patchy.

That Rick Moranis Star Wars pastiche was another one. I was dumbfounded at how shitly unfunny it was - even as an 11 year old.

Top Secret is superb. The magnifying glass, the moving railway station, and giant telephone sight gags are brilliant.

Spaceballs is better though.

Top Secret is hit & miss, but ultimately enjoyable. The Airplane! and Naked Gun movies are all vastly superior, though.

Spaceballs is utterly unfunny tripe. Plus, it was a payday for that cunt Joan Rivers, so it can fuck off twice.

Top Secret is hit and miss. It tries a bit too hard to be wacky at times, but a lot of people swear it's the best Z-A-Z film, which is difficult for me to fathom but each to their own. To me it is just a collection of strong set pieces and doesn't flow that well as an actual film. The underwater fight is gold though.

The only films I've ever walked out in 35 years of cinema going were :

High Spirits (a 1988 "comedy" that NOBODY saw - starring Steve Guttenberg, Daryl Hannah and Peter O'Toole)

Entrapment - (something something something.....stealing artworks with the always reliably friggen awful Sean Connery and scene chewing Catherine Zeta Jones)

Chain Reaction (Keanu Reeves is a scientist. the end)

Signs - (but in all fairness, I walked back in again out of morbid curiosity. though I probably shouldn't have)


Oh and I made it all the way through Speed Racer. But in all fairness I was on a date with a cute Japanese girl and the prospects of getting laid were quite high as long as I kept my cool and took an interest in all the things she seemed to like - ie like this horrible movie she wanted to watch.

And in the end I got laid, so....

In The Mouth Of Madness - Good concept, so-so execution, awful music. Felt more like a late '80s horror than mid '90s. Decent last half hour, though. 3/5
