  • Shogun Assassin 1980

    ★★★★ Watched 21 Sep, 2014

    A pretty magnificent orgy of violence, as far as orgies of violence go. Wu-Tang fans: try to watch it and NOT have Liquid Swords constantly playing in your head. Impossible.

    I guess I wish the ending was different, but a wish is only a wish.

  • Godzilla 2014

    ★★★★★ Watched 26 Jan, 2014

    An absolutely brutal film. The casualness with which the most horrible of atrocities are treated by their perpetrators is truly shocking, especially for the fact that those perpetrators are shown as they are: three-dimensional, conflicted human beings. It's a fascinating and appalling study in how the human mind can rationalize doing terrible things, up to a point at least.
