  • Impulse 1984

    ★★★½ Watched 30 Jul, 2014

    Impulse is an interesting town-goes-crazy mystery thriller with a solid set-up, some delightfully unnerving scenes, a great finale, but drags a little when entering the finale.

    Meg Tilly travels home - with her partner Tim Matheson - after her Mother commits suicide during a distressing phone call. Once there, they witness increasingly bizarre situations of townspeople acting out - like stealing from the bank, ramming cars that take their parking spot, etc.

  • Lucy 2014

    ★★★ Watched 28 Jul, 2014

    If you only have time to see one movie this summer, you can see every movie this summer in Lucy.

    A drunk cat keeps messing around with two families in an attempt to ruin their lives. Or something along those lines. Did I mention that Eric Roberts voices the cat? Did I mention he recorded his voice-over in a garbage can? Did I mention David DeCoteau directed it? AVClub describes this movie as a talking animal movie meets The Room - pretty apt. I won't lie, I laughed pretty hard at this pile of crap a couple times.
