  • The Drownsman

    The Drownsman 2014

    ★½ Watched 02 May, 2015

    A few observations:

    1: The human body is made up of 60% water, why couldn't the drownsman just appear inside his victims and make them explode?

    2: If he can just make water appear wherever he likes, then why doesn't he just constantly do that in order to get his victims?

    3: If she's so afraid of water, so much so that she can't even drink it and needs to be hydrated through an IV, how does she look so clean?

    4: Since he wasn't planning on killing her after bringing her to his layer, what was his plan? Just to hang?

Even those who weren’t die-hard fans of Nirvana should check this one out, as it’s simply one of the most well made rock ‘n’ roll documentaries I’ve seen.

    Watched 02 Dec, 2013

    One of the most infuriatingly frustrating films I've seen this year. The premise is genuinely creepy (and gross) but the actions of the entire cast are completely illogical and ridiculous.

    If your vagina is gushing blood and maggots, your eyes are bleeding, your fingernails are falling off, and your hair is coming out in clumps you'd probably go to the hospital right? Apparently not if you're a self-centered twenty-something. In that case, you go to work, then try to win…

  • The Raid 2

    The Raid 2 2014

    ★★★★★ Watched 21 Jan, 2014

    When Gareth Evans’ The Raid was first unleashed into the world in 2011, I stated that it was the best action film to be released in decades and one of the best ever made. Now, just two years later we have The Raid 2, a movie that had some seemingly insurmountable shoes to fill. Evans apparently knew he had to up the ante, because everything in this sequel is bigger and better. While the first entry was isolated and pure…
