  • Burying the Ex

    Burying the Ex 2015

    ★★½ Watched 01 Oct, 2015

    A disappointingly average (at best) effort from director Joe Dante. I wouldn't say this is as bad as some of the later films I have seen from other classic horror directors, but it's still a bummer to see another one of my heroes crank out a movie that feels like a pale imitation of their previous great work.

    The story concerns a young horror nerd whose bitchy (but sex-craved) girlfriend is killed in an accident right before he is going…

  • Cannibal Holocaust

    Cannibal Holocaust 1980

    ★★★ Rewatched 26 Sep, 2015

    Obviously, watching Eli Roth's Green Inferno put me in the mood to re-visit the film that is its biggest inspiration. No matter how positive you might feel about Cannibal Holocaust, I don't think it's a movie you really re-visit all that often. How could your spirit take it?

    You will not find a better expression of Pure Cinema in the action genre than Mad Max: Fury Road.

    I loved every single beautiful, insane and exhilarating frame of this movie. This is the Mad Max series reborn in the most over-the-top, mythic fashion possible, delivering the biggest and best action sequences we have seen in years, while somehow also not forgetting to…

  • Avengers: Age of Ultron

    Avengers: Age of Ultron 2015

    ★★★★ Watched 30 Apr, 2015 1

    While not supplanting Winter Soldier as my favorite (that's gonna be REALLY hard to do), Age of Ultron nonetheless is, to me, the ultimate promise of the MCU, fulfilled. This is the most "comic booky" comic book movie I have ever seen. Watching it actually replicates how it feels to read the big Marvel crossover events, thanks in large part to an episodic story structure that actually feels like a series of individual issues, but also thanks to just how…
