    Happy Birthday to Me

    ★★★½

    Wow. This movie is being really upfront about...WHOOOOOOOAAAAA HO HO. NICE.

    I really enjoyed this. It's my birthday so I gave this a watch and, along with its kick-ass poster, this film ALMOST delivers on its tag-line. The string of professionally made slashers in the early-80s are just the best sort of comfort food.

    The film rips off a good portion of F13ths style. But it ultimately works well towards their ending. So, all is forgiven. Now, give me that soundtrack on vinyl, please.

    ★★★

    I was impressed but disengaged. It's all quite solid and the Gozer dog monster is fun, but it's a tired tread relationship wise...and that's most of the movie.

    ★★★★★

    It's easy to get blinded by the sun. It's even easier to get lost in it. When you're stuck in the shade for an indefinite amount of time, though, you long and struggle and remiss.

    Ruth is a scared and tired…

    Upstream Color

    ★★★★★

    Not confusing. Truly mysterious. And when mysterious, wholly engaging. Once secrets begin to become unraveled: This film is transcendent.

    The result is a film that gets better as it progresses. There is not much else one can ask for.

    Beset near the pinnacle of visual storytelling, 'Upstream Color' relies on striking performances and constant intrigue to bring a completely original story to life.

    An attempt to summarize or tease this work of art would be an injustice to the visuals held within its beautiful self.
