  • Rebirth

    Rebirth 2016

    ★★★★★ Watched 24 Sep, 2016

    An absolutely perfect lo-fi mashup of The Game, Fight Club, and that scene from Anger Management where Nicholson keeps asking Sandler to describe himself but no answer he gives is the one Nicholson is looking for and the confused frustration just builds and builds and builds.

  • Kickboxer: Vengeance

    Kickboxer: Vengeance 2016

    ★★★ Watched 23 Sep, 2016

    Eh, it's a competent enough reboot, and it even excises some of the less-palatable elements of the original, too bad it couldn't muster up much of a personality. At least it saves the goofy dance tribute for the end credits, where it serves as a welcome surprise bit of fun rather than obnoxious, distracting fan service. Definitely needed a more interesting lead, but Van Damme and Bautista make up for whats-his-face's general lack of charisma. Also, it's cool she's broadening her acting range, but if you're gonna put Gina Carano in a Kickboxer movie and she doesn't fight, people (me) will leave a little disappointed.

  • The Cabin in the Woods

    The Cabin in the Woods 2012

    ★★★★★ Watched 14 Apr, 2012

    This is becoming quite the year for genre films. I knew very little about the film going in (cabin, woods, etc.) and was constantly surprised and astounded by the developments and utter chaos of this film. It's a fucking blast.

  • Reindeer Games

    Reindeer Games 2000

    ★★★ Rewatched 17 Jul, 2012 1

    Top 5 Reasons To Watch Reindeer Games:

    5. One of the dumbest, most convoluted 'twist' endings imaginable.

    4. Isaac Hayes' most inexplicable film role. It's baffling.

    3. Charlize Theron

    2. "I want some fuckin hAAt chAAklAAt... and some pecan fuckin pie."

    1. Dennis Farina's inexplicable false teeth.

    A truly breathtaking mess of a motion picture.
