    Godzilla Minus One

    "Is your war finally over?"
    — Noriko

    Alright. Alright. I called Gojira a masterpiece. I loved Shin Godzilla. Does anyone expect me to somehow not love Godzilla Minus One? As I sat there in the theater with certain expectations, I was repeatedly blown away by what I experienced. Where Shin Godzilla felt like a modern day evolved retelling of the original Gojira film, choosing to take it all the way back to the immediate post-war Japan in Godzilla Minus One

    The Exorcist

    Season of Spooks 2023 #3

    "You're sorry! Jesus Christ, eighty-eight doctors and all you can tell me with all of your bullshit is..."
    — Chris MacNeil

    Before last night, I would've happily had told you that I respect The Exorcist for all that it is, and all that it has done for horror. But, it wasn't really a film that I had particularly enjoyed watching in the past. Probably because I watched it when I was younger, and didn't quite…

    Godzilla Minus One

    “Everyone who survived the war deserves to live.”
    — Noriko

    You know I had to catch Godzilla Minus One again before it leaves the big screen. Fuck me, what an absolute and awesome triumph of a picture that honestly hit even harder on the rewatch. My ass teared up repeatedly this time. I could just watch the continuing adventures of Cap, Doc and Kid forever.

    I have so many more Godzilla films to catch up on from Japan and the US, with the sloppy-as-fuck looking Kong x Godzilla to look forward to next year. Oh yeah, I’m a Godzilla girl living in a Godzilla world.

  • The Passenger

    The Passenger

    “What’s all this got to do with me?”
    — Randy Bradley

    I definitely feel that a lot more of my appreciation for The Passenger came from going in pretty much blind, but man, does this film grab you and not let go from that ridiculously explosive opening sequence at Burgers, Burgers, Burgers. My anxiety that built up during the course of the film matched only by Randy’s own anxiety.

    As a dual character study, we follow Johnny Bertchold’s Randy Bradley…

  • Blow Out

    Blow Out

    “It’s a good scream, it’s a good scream. A good scream.”

    Holy shit. Blow Out is a fucking wild ride and a half. A tragic and tense noir dripping with style. That permeating sense of paranoia and conspiracy. An 80s film with a 70s flair.

    Jack, Sally and ‘the Liberty Bell Killer’. There’s no fault in any of the acting across the film. The amount of nuance and character given to Jack by John Travolta astounded me. Just absolutely perfectly played.…

  • Thanksgiving


    “What are *you* thankful for?”
    — The Killer

    Thanksgiving; or the story of how I was the only person laughing in my damn theater.

    For real though, Thanksgiving was just so much damn fun! Eli Roth delivers a super solid holiday horror whodunit slasher with some really great gruesome gory kills, gorgeous practicals, decent twists and a fantastic sense of style. Even the cast is entirely solid and entertaining. It’s exactly what I could’ve asked for.

    The entire opening sequence…
