Once Upon a Time... In Hollywood

Brilliant film, way different than anything the man (Tarantino) has done before. Oscar-caliber performances from Decaprio and Pitt, incredible attention to detail in building a late '60s Hollywood, and an awesome pit bull named Brandy. Movie of the year for me. Note: A strong knowledge of TV/cinema ...

Midsommar

While not quite on the level of Aster's debut, "MIdsommar" brought the dread. The plot was fairly simplistic but the atmosphere was seriously thick. The score and cinematography helped with that immensely. I'll definitely be buying this for home viewing.

Re: Revenge

I found it was too unrealistic and cartoony to be disturbing. My wife felt the same way, she laughed quite a bit. I took the movie to be about aliens or some sort of other humanoid species based on how much they were able to bleed without dying. Walking across so much desert without shoes blew me aw...

Better late than never, I am sure glad this was still in theater. I loved everything about it, the music synchronization was the icing on the cake. Paul Williams too, fan for life since Phantom of the Paradise.

RIP George. Thanks for making the best zombie movies of all time. Without him zombies, as we know them today, would not exist. I am glad I was able to meet him in 2010, sad that I will never be able to see him again. Celebrity deaths rarely affect me on a personal level but this one hit me hard. Sim...

Re: Death Race 2050

Released on January 17th and already on Netflix! This cheap, cheesy sequel/remake did a good job or capturing the spirit of the original. If you enjoyed the original Death Race 2000 you will likely enjoy this. I know I did.

On the other hand, the part that hit the plus column first was SO damn good that it belongs in the pantheon...

Shin Godzilla

I REALLY liked it with the exception of the Japanese actress who was supposed to be portraying an English speaking Japanese-American. I read no reviews and had no expectations going in. If one goes in expecting a monster mash they will end up being sorely disappointed. This was much more along the l...

I thought the movie was decent. It was very well made and had excellent practical FX. With that said it was missing the mean spirit that made the old school Italian films so shocking. Not just the animal stuff either, there were several elements I consider essential to a proper cannibal film that we...

Re: Mad Max: Fury Road

All I can say is that this was FREAKING AWESOME. A turbo charged thrill ride that reeked of blood, sweat and bio diesel. I hope to catch it again within the next few weeks, I want to check out the 3D version.
