  • The Boxer's Omen 1983

    ★★★★ Watched 27 Sep, 2014

    Raimi, Jodorowsky, and Lynch in the Shaw Brothers' blender with black magic and kung fu. Inexplicably weird, it must be seen to be believed. Simultaneously horrendous and amazing. It will definitely break your brain a little bit.

  • Phenomena 1985

    ★★★½ Watched 21 Sep, 2014

    Creepers cut. So what if the whole thing doesn't make any sense: Donald Pleasance entomologist + chimp assistant = your argument is invalid.

  • Black Moon 1975

    ★★★½ Watched 22 Jun, 2014

    Malle's enigmatic, surreal, dreamy riff on Alice in Wonderland. Strange that I've never watched this before considering it's right up my alley. As Malle deliberately avoided a clear plot, BLACK MOON seems a little unfocused so I'm not head over heels but I highly recommend it for fans of oneiric cinema. It's certainly one-of-a-kind and Cathryn Harrison (in the lead role of Lily) is a pretty magnetic presence.

  • X-Men: Days of Future Past 2014

    ★★★½ Watched 23 May, 2014

    Pretty satisfying for this old X-fan. Meshing the two tones of the timelines a little clunky but I still dig the Stewart/McKellen chemistry. Also, Jackman's bod deserves a half star all it's own.
