171: SFFCH – Triangle [2009]

171 Triangle

171 SFFCH Triangle [2009]

Ant plucks out this cheap and standard looking horror film from deep down in the film bin this week called Triangle from 2009. Expectations are low from the poetically three-pointed panel of him, Rich and Jamie, but is there something more mysterious and mind-bending waiting in store for them. Come and join them all try and wrap their brains (and maybe intestines) around this twisty tale which includes such flotsam and jetsam as: slapstick axe-throwing, numerous Shining references, symbolic seagulls, perplexing paradoxes and surprisingly very little mention of the Bermuda Triangle, weirdly.

170: SFFCH – Dick Tracy [1990]

170 Dick Tracy

“Ooooo, look at all the pretty colours!” This, we highly suspect here at Spoiler Filled HQ, is how most people ended up watching this week’s film, the live-action adaptation of Dick Tracy from 1990. But perhaps we are soon to discover the hideous nature of the beast laying below. In this discussion, we discuss such things as: how there is such a distinguished cast in such a questionable movie, Madonna’s gangster voice, neon noir and all those god-damned melty faces.
