    The Ides of March 2011

    ★★★½ Rewatched 02 Nov, 2015

    PSH destroys every actor that he comes in contact with in this film.

  • Dawn of the Dead

    Dawn of the Dead 1978

    ★★★★★ Rewatched 31 Oct, 2015

    You throw in this movie, and you are transported to the Monroeville mall circa 1978. Pretty much the text book definition of "movie magic" right here.

    Nothing says happy Halloween quite like silver goo oozing out of someone's forehead vagina.

  • Oculus

    Oculus 2014

    ★★ Watched 30 Oct, 2015

    I give Oculus credit for catching my attention during the second act of the film, given that once I found out that this was directed by the dude that did Absentia, I basically assumed that this would be a half star movie. There are definitely moments in Oculus that work, particularly all the stuff that is set up for dealing with this mirror, but this flick has no substance at all. It's pretty much a one off viewing experience, as…

    Our Brand Is Crisis 2015

    ★★★ Watched 30 Oct, 2015 3

    Competently made, though I would expect nothing less from David Gordon Green, but unfortunately this is really a nothing film, that went in one eye and out the other.

  • Suspiria

    Suspiria 1977

    ★★★★★ Rewatched 29 Oct, 2015

    It has been a while since I watched this, and boy does this film rule. Like eating candy for the eyes....disgusting blood soaked candy.

  • Dracula

    Dracula 1992

    ★★★★★ Rewatched 27 Oct, 2015

    The new Blu is fantastic, and is definitely worth adding to your collection. I bet it has never looked this good, and the 4k master compliments all the work put into the visuals perfectly.

  • In the Mouth of Madness

    The opening credits to this film is my number one air guitar song.

    "Remember the Alamo cowboy."

  • The Babadook

    The Babadook 2014

    ★★★★★ Rewatched 24 Oct, 2015

    The Babadook is such a gloriously tight 90 minutes.

  • Goosebumps

    Goosebumps 2015

    ★★★★ Watched 24 Oct, 2015 3

    Goosebumps is a legitimately good movie that utilizes the tried and true "Blob" formula to make a very fun kids movie. The whole film is just monsters from the Goosebumps books terrorizing a town, and that is the whole plot. The film is legitimately fun, and funny, and feels like a film made in 1987. Really, it is just solid family entertainment that knows exactly who its audience is, and I appreciate that.

  • Steve Jobs

    Steve Jobs 2015

    ★★★★ Watched 23 Oct, 2015 1

    There is a certain feeling of artificiality to live theatre that bothers me. This idea that I am sitting watching another flesh and blood person in the same room as me pretending to be another person, in another place, always makes me just feel uncomfortable. Film never makes me feel this way, mainly because there is a disconnect between myself and the screen. I know that if I walk up and touch the screen while a movie is being projected,…
