  • Hesher 2010

    ★★★★ Added

    I'd hardly heard of this film at all, when a friend recommended it and I ended up dialing it up on iTunes one night. Loved the sparse, surreal story and all the performances.

    And judge me if you must, but Joseph Gordon-Levitt has never looked sexy, except in this film, in which he looks like an insane dirtbag.

  • Acolytes 2008

    ★★★★½ Added

    I love the hell out of this dark Aussie horror flick. Amazing story of a group of teens who think they've found a dead body but get way, way more than they bargained for.

  • The Loved Ones 2009

    ★★★★½ Added

    One of the best, most fun horror films in years. Those Australians really know how to do it. Not only is the plot compelling, surprising and totally twisted, but the villainess is super fun to watch. I didn't root for her, but I sure cheered every time she was on screen.

  • Cane Toads: An Unnatural History 1988

    ★★★★½ Watched 21 Apr, 2012

    One of the most creepy and hilarious docs I've seen in a while. Beautifully told (horrifying) story about the slow takeover of northeastern Australia by the insidious cane toad, a creature that was introduced to the ecosystem to kill cane grubs (which it failed to do). This poisonous creature has no natural predators, reproduces quickly, and destroys everything in its wake.

    The most surprising part of the doc were not the people hell-bent on stamping out the pests, but those who love them in spite of it all.
