  • Ride Along 2014

    ★★★½ Watched 16 Sep, 2014

    I laughed a lot. Would ride along again.

  • Planet Patrol 1999

    Watched 13 Sep, 2014

    Probably 10 or so minutes of actual new footage. Everything else is from Doctor Mordrid, Subspecies, Kraa! the Sea Monster & Robot Wars. Maybe if you never saw any of those it'd be entertaining, but for me it was super boring. Although Kraa! as it was here (edited to about 25 minutes) is a better version of that movie.

  • Bewitched 1981

    ★★★★★ Rewatched 13 Sep, 2014

    The most fun you'll ever have watching a man drink blood from a vat full of fetuses and intestines. I love this movie so much.

  • The Thunderbolt Fist 1972

    ★★★ Watched 11 Aug, 2014

    Kinda average and boring until the series of fights that close the film. Those were pretty well done, and there's a couple of awesome gore moments, too.

  • Guardians of the Galaxy 2014

    ★★★★½ Watched 09 Aug, 2014

    Wow, that was damn entertaining.

  • Only God Forgives 2013

    ★★ Watched 04 Aug, 2014

    Only God forgives because everyone else is too busy moving at a metered pace and staring off into space without emotion.

  • The Legend of Hercules 2014

    ★★ Watched 18 Jul, 2014

    It's quite bad, but I still enjoyed it. Horrible, needless slo-mo and the Saving Private Ryan camera shutter effect throughout gets really annoying. Doesn't make a lot of sense either, but as a B-Movie that doesn't really matter. What does matter is that Hercules strangles a CG lion, and later swings a hilariously fun lightning sword.

  • Persona 1966

    ★★★★ Watched 29 Jun, 2014

    I don't know that I liked it, but it's very good. I did like how it plays with reality and its exceptional cinematography.

  • Nightbreed 1990

    ★★★★½ Watched 01 Jun, 2014

    A fantastic adaptation of Barker's book. His imagination is so unique; I wish he had the chance to direct more films based on his writings. There are flaws to be sure, but I hope the upcoming release of the Extended edition will solve a lot of those. I was surprised that pretty much the entire novel's story made it into the movie, too! I can't imagine what people who haven't read the book think of it, though, as there are a few moments unexplained here that probably only make sense if you read the book.

  • Black Tavern 1972

    ★★★★★ Watched 04 May, 2014

    What a movie! A must-see film for martial arts fans.

  • Hard Boiled 1992

    ★★★★★ Rewatched 04 May, 2014

    Still dope as fuck, but way more cartoonish than I remember. It's probably been a good 10 years since I saw this last.

    And Phillip Kwok stole the show for me this time. I guess I didn't really know who he was when I was a teenager, but he definitely made an impression tonight. Can't wait to get to his stuff with Chang Cheh in my Shaw Bros review series.

  • Tough Bond 2013

    ★★★★★ Watched 27 Apr, 2014

    Fantastic but utterly crushing documentary. I find films like this hard to rate, but the way the directors slowly grew the themes, with images instead of the typical documentary crutches of on-screen text and narration, made Tough Bond a thoughtful and affecting piece of work.
