  • The Invitation

    The Invitation 2015

    ★★★★½ Watched 16 Apr, 2016

    Oh man, I really liked this. A slow burn, to be sure, but you could feel the roller coaster heading up the tracks towards the top of the first hill the entire way, building and ticking. And even though I was fairly sure I knew what was going to happen, once the plot roller coaster started its descent, it was just as exciting. I'm delighted to have stumbled upon a movie this great.

  • Bowfinger

    Bowfinger 1999

    ★★★ Rewatched 16 Apr, 2016

    I loved this when it first came out in 1999, but upon a rewatch I feel it's just okay. A good laugh or two, a few smiles, funny but not special.

  • Split Second

    Split Second 1992

    ★★★ Watched 10 Apr, 2012

    Look, pretty much everything you need to know about this movie you can see in the poster. It's Rutger Hauer and the slogan is: "He's seen the future.. now he has to kill it. He'll need bigger guns." The rest of the movie is written as delightfully terribly as the slogan.

    Hauer plays a cop in an alternate future London who must stop an Alien rip-off from tearing out people's hearts. He also calls a dog a "dickhead". Twice.

  • Shaun of the Dead

    Shaun of the Dead 2004

    ★★★★★ Added

    This is my favorite movie. Yes, Shaun of the Dead. There are some scary bits, some gory bits, some funny bits, and some touching bits, wrapped up in a big message about how behaving like a grown-up is unpleasant but necessary sometimes. The creators of this movie clearly love the genre, and it's full of really delightful in-jokes for the zombie fan.
