    All Through the House 2015

    ★★★ Watched 08 Dec, 2016

    As far as slashers go, I'm not sure how much more you could ask from All Through the House. It hits all of the slasher staples in a remarkably quick fashion and never, EVER takes itself too seriously in the process of doing so. A bit of the film can be underwhelming, the dialogue and the performances for much of the cast are mediocre to terrible at best, there are some story elements that seem to be added just for…

    Anguish 2015

    Gone Girl 2014

    ★★★★★ Watched 05 Oct, 2014

    Fincher, you mad genius bastard! Only he could take a film like this and make into a riveting, roller coaster emotional thriller that has even the most intelligent of movie goer leaning whatever which way he wants them to go.

    Since Pixar decided to completely abandon creativity with their last two films, I was skeptical about Inside Out. However, this is easily one of my favorites that the studio has released and one of their most ambitious, unique, and creative films of their highly regarded catalog. It's both outrageously fun and horrendously sad (a key component to the theme of the film). I'm glad to see the studio producing films like this again. It comes highly recommended.
