    Furious 7 2015

    ★★★★ Watched 13 Jun, 2016

    As with the best of the classic '80s action flicks, by a certain point this movie achieves critical mass of stupidity and goes supernova (stupidnova?). At this point, it reaches the level of genius.

    I suggest a double feature pairing this with Machete Kills.

    I really dug this.

    I geeked out something fierce. Very much in the spirit of Hammer horror and Roger Corman's Poe adaptations, but with way better fx. Plus a couple awesome visual references to The Changeling and The Shining.

    I was actually kind of overstimulated and only this morning realized how heavy-handed the Freudian imagery was. People haunted by their mothers who live in a HOUSE THAT MENSTRUATES. Not that I'm complaining or anything.

    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.
