  • Rebirth

    Rebirth 2016

    ★★★ Watched 20 Jul, 2016

    A Netflix original! This movie isn't bad, but I wish it had honed its message a little more. The sting comes during a credits sequence, which is better than nothing, I guess, but the movie would have been better served with more of the characters' intentions being made clear early on and less of a focus on being mysterious.

    Pat Healy is a god damn delight, though, as usual.

  • Housebound

    Housebound 2014

    ★★★½ Watched 11 Jul, 2016

    Housebound is a good time, don't get me wrong, but it didn't live up to its buzz for me. I think I did it a disservice by seeing What We Do In The Shadows first -- the two movies are similar enough in tone that I kept comparing them, and it's hard to be better than WWDITS.

    They Look Like People 2015

    ★★½ Watched 03 Jul, 2016

    First and foremost: this movie has a fantastic title.

    They Look Like People suffers from Indie Horror Disease: interesting concept, good and subtle foundation, and then an ending that comes out of nowhere and answers nothing. Look, I get it, endings are hard, but I still want one.

    Also, at this point I am kind of over stories about middle-class white bros having crises of masculinity. If you're going to make that kind of movie, it better bring something real different to the table.

  • 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.
