  • Antiviral

    Antiviral 2012

    ★★★½ Watched 02 Oct, 2015

    Film #13 of Hoop-Tober 2.0

    It's difficult to discuss Brandon Cronenberg's first feature film without discussing his father, the body horror maestro himself David Cronenberg. That's because Antiviral feels very much like a film the elder of the two would have made; every frame feels authentic to him. But indeed, this is the son's creation and it has some very good ideas, although it doesn't quite have the cohesion or depth to explore them as well as they should be.…

I had heard much about the struggle to get the film released, of course--filmed by Drew Goddard based on a script by Joss Whedon and himself, delayed to do 3D post-conversion and…

  • Mad Max: Fury Road

    Mad Max: Fury Road 2015

    ★★★★½ Watched 22 May, 2015

    "What a lovely day" is Mad Max: Fury Road's most marketed phrase, but the one that most exemplifies it is "We are not things." This fourth film in the famous Australian franchise is a $150 million arthouse post-apocalyptic spaghetti western, and a fabulous one at that. George Miller is as good as he's ever been behind the camera with this intense experience that turns many elements of the action genre on its head. The acting is top-notch -- including from…
