    The Wicker Man 1973

    ★★★★½ Watched 07 Jun, 2016

    Lots more singing and dancing than I expected for sure.

  • A Country Called Home

    A Country Called Home 2015

    ★★★½ Watched 06 Jun, 2016

    This movie is extremely serious about crossing off every item on the Quirky Indie Drama Checklist as quickly as possible, but thankfully it's never overly "clever" and its typical melancholy tone seems rooted in sincere sadness. Ms. Poots gives a lovely performance, and I was pleasantly surprised by how much I enjoyed the whole thing.

    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.

    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.
