  • I'm Sorry 2011

    ★★★½ Watched 14 Oct, 2014

    Kind of what I was expecting and also not...this is more of a drama than a horror film (and has the pace to match). In fact, it's barely a horror film, but instead takes several Japanese horror staples, throws them in a blender and manages to come up with a somewhat fresh twist, wrapped in something a bit deeper than your typical Japanese horror.

    Do not expect something fast paced and fun, as this is instead measured and thoughtful. Surprising and recommended.

    No, you aren't and no, you didn't.

    Lee: I like to let people talk who like to talk. It lets me find out how full of shit they are.
    Carter: What the hell did you just say?

  • Dragon Ball Z Special 2: The History of Trunks 1993

    ★★★½ Added

    The best story in any of the Dragon Ball Z films. If you ever wanted to know what the big deal was with Dragon Ball, this is as good a place to start as any. As worthy a hero's beginning as Spider-Man, Batman, you name it.
