burke and hare and bonded by blood


These are not getting full write ups as l only lasted about half an hour with each. They really were that bad.
Burke and Hare l had high hopes for, as it was directed by John Landis (An American Werewolf In London, Animal House and The Blues Brothers - all excellent), and stars Simon Pegg and Andy Serkis amongst many others from British comedy shows. However, Landis has not done a half decent film for years, it was not that dark and it certainly was not funny. I found out later that it was written by the guys behind the last St Trinian's film (who l won't dignify by naming), which l also thought was crap (worse than crap in fact, whatever that may be). That would explain a lot. What a rotten stinker (as The Sex Pistols may have said to Bill Grundy).
Bonded by Blood is another run of the mill gangster movie, with some recognisable faces from 'The Football Factory' (Tamer Hassan, Neil Maskell) , a football film l did enjoy. I definitely did not enjoy this heap of clich├ęd garbage, and l nearly put my back out lunging for the off switch. My good and giddy aunt could write a better movie than these efforts by banging the idiot rabbits nose against the keyboard for half an hour, and still have time for a coffee break.
