  • 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.

  • Dead Snow 2009

    ★★★½ Watched 30 Aug, 2014

    The pacing is a bit off, but it's a far prettier film than it deserves to be. It certainly plays with the expectations I had from the genre. I kept cringing that the characters were being killed in the "wrong" order. The obsession with intestines was never well explained, except maybe the film makers really liked how well their fake intestines were turning out? But really, you had me at zombie nazis. Everything else is a bonus.

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

    ★★★★ Rewatched 04 Aug, 2012

    Such a beautiful, creative noir piece. Incredibly physical, tense performances. Gorgeous camera work. Dizzying editing. And Joseph Gordon Levitt holds the whole thing together in a way that no other role or director has provided before.
