  • Yesterday Was a Lie

    Yesterday Was a Lie 2008

    Watched 14 Apr, 2015

    Either that was far better and more thoughtfully constructed of a story than I expected or far uglier and cheaper than it deserved to be or some combination thereof, but it certainly lived up to its surreal Jungian postmodern low-rent noir billing.

    Or did it?

  • Messiah of Evil

    Messiah of Evil 1973

    ★★★★ Watched 14 Mar, 2015

    The plot is rather standard b-movie fare (with big, rambling holes in the plot made up for with elements that work) but the art direction is... just mind blowing.

    Sets covered in pop art murals that skew the viewers' perspective, cinematography that is just awe inspiring.

    Ever say to yourself "I wish there were a mod romcom about mathematical analog code cracking with punchcards and LSD"?

    Torque 2004

    ★★½ Watched 12 Sep, 2014

    Oh, it's trying to both satirize action racing pictures and be an action racing picture. There's an over-the-top sense of humor there. There's also lots of explosions of expensive bikes, cars, props. But it ends up feeling like you've watched two hours of a Pepsi commercial dreamed up by Kid Rock.

    I loved DETENTION. I can see inklings of the brilliance of DETENTION in this. But this is certainly no DETENTION.
