Three Films I want to see: Sleep Dealers, Pandorum and Big Man Japan

Sleep Dealers

Strange film based in the near future where immigrants don’t have to leave the country to work. They can control robots via a virtual reality headset. Looks like it won lots of awards so I am definitely going to catch this.

Mexico. The near future. Memo Cruz has always dreamed of leaving his tiny village and heading north. But when he is ultimately forced to leave, Memo finds a future so bizarre - border walls, shantytowns, hi-tech factories, remote control drones and aqua-terrorists - that it looks a lot like today.


Scary Sci-Fi horror. I know it’s made by the guys that did Resident Evil so it will undoubtedly be really bad, but I liked the look of the murky visuals and the voice over guy made me laugh too.

From the creators of the Resident Evil film franchise comes Pandorum, a terrifying thriller in which two crew members wake up on an abandoned spacecraft with no idea who they are, how long they’ve been asleep, or what their mission is. The two soon discover they’re actually not alone — and the reality of their situation is more horrifying than they could have imagined.

Big Man Japan

Comedy giant Japanese monster movie. Or maybe Japanese giant comedy monster movie. Anyway, it looks like a laugh.

A middle-aged slacker living in a rundown, graffiti-ridden slum, Daisato’s job involves being shocked by bolts of electricity that transform him into a stocky, stick-wielding giant several stories high who is entrusted with defending Japan from a host of bizarre monsters. But while his predecessors were national heroes, he is a pariah among the citizens he protects, who bitterly complain about the noise and destruction of property he causes. And Daisato has his own problems -an agent insistent on branding him with sponsor advertisements, an Alzheimer-afflicted grandfather who transforms into a giant in dirty underwear, and a family who is embarrassed by his often cowardly exploits. A wickedly deadpan spin on the giant Japanese superhero, BIG MAN JAPAN is an outrageous portrait of a pathetic but truly unique hero.
