    Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them 2016

    ★★★★ Watched 22 Nov, 2016

    Very very very good. A little bit of a bland start that had me worried, and that may have been intentional considering how dramatically the entire tone shifted once Newt's first foray into the suitcase is shown. This seems like a huge gamble for the studio considering that absolutely everything you would mentally associate with a Harry Potter film is reversed here. Location, time period, age of characters, and every one of the leads is somewhat flawed characterwise and unconventional…

    Doctor Strange 2016

    ★★★ Watched 16 Nov, 2016

    Not quite the level of spectacle or overall quality of say, Civil War or Guardians Of The Galaxy, but not as bad as Iron Man 3, this falls right around Ant-Man level. Enjoyable, serviceable, but plays it safe in typical Marvel fashion.

    A great original, modern horror movie that manages to nail metaphor and emotional social commentary while not being too intellectual. While taking place in modern day, the INCREDIBLE synth score and the suburban teenager plot made it feel like a lost Carpenter or Craven film from the '80's. Best blind purchase I have made in a long time.

    Maskerade 2010

    ★★★★ Watched 27 Apr, 2012 2

    What I assumed was going to be a dime a dozen by the numbers slasher flick ended up being quite a surprise. Very competently shot, with likeable characters, great gore, and very very lovely ladies that don't mind getting naked in order to fulfill all the things a slasher flick needs. also near the ends a couple nice homages to Friday The 13th films. Felt like I was watching an 80's era flick, which is exactly what this sub-genre should feel like. It's currently on Netflix streaming in glorious HD in case you don't feel like picking up the bluray.
