    God Told Me To 1976

    ★★★★ Watched 31 Jan, 2015

    This is a fascinating, unsettling, incoherent mess of a film.

    Imagine a mash-up between The Omen, The X-Files, Mean Streets and Dirty Harry, with a smidgen of Cronenberg-esque body horror thrown in just for giggles.

    The plot is barely comprehensible, but it's still quite watchable.

    I love the premise but the execution fails to deliver.

    One) Put some junk in a box.
    Two) Put dybbuk in that box.
    Three) Make her open the box.

    It's Dybbuk-in-a-Box!

    The Amazing Spider-Man 2012

    ★★½ Watched 04 Jul, 2012

    Great casting, good performances and nice CGI eye-candy. This film has almost everything going for it except for one small detail: the script.

    James Vanderbilt penned one of my all-time favorite movies -- Zodiac -- so I had high hopes. These hopes were dashed as I watched the skeleton of a standard superhero origin story become clothed in the flesh of an insipid Nicholas Sparks-style melodrama.

    If they stick with this ultra-saccharine tone for the sequel, count me out.
