  • Kill Bill: Vol. 2 2004

    ★★★★½ Rewatched 21 Oct, 2014

    this second half of the Kill Bill story shines in many ways. i was taken back while watching it again as it seems to formally introduce and refine a style of much longer & very tense dialog sequences that Tarantino would later use in Death Proof, Inglorious Basterds & Django Unchained. there's some stuff in the third act that still doesn't work (a four year old wanting to watch Shogun Assassin before bed?!....odd music choices...getting a little too sappy with the kid…

  • Scary Tales 1993

    ★★★★ Watched 20 Oct, 2014

    While watching the back yard shot on video glory fest that is Scary Tales, I came to a realization. SOV 80s horror is possibly the most punk rock of movie genres.

    i was happily surprised to see how successful the…

  • Halloween II 2009

    ★★ Watched 09 Oct, 2014 2

    hooooo boy.

    so.....Bob Zombie's vision of Halloween is to have Michael Myers wandering around without a mask on, with a giant beard, talking, grunting, and seeing visions of his dead mother with a white horse. i don't know about that.
    every character in this movie is perhaps the most annoying person you've ever seen. this film's Laurie (aka Angel Myers... pretty deep there, Bob) is either constantly screaming "FUCK!" or bouncing around saying she wants to party. Welcome to Rob…
