    The Sisters Brothers

    ★★★★

    (8.5/10)
    The Sisters Brothers: This western definitely puts the "dark" in dark comedy.

    Director Jacques Audiard's western is certainly dark. The film is pitched as sort of a comedy, but there isn't much humor. However, that doesn't mean the film isn't worth seeing. The film tells the story of two brothers on a journey to find a missing person. Along the way the two discover a lot about themselves and each other. Audiard does a a great job of balancing…

    ★★★★

    Batman Ninja

    ★★★★

    (8/10)
    Batman Ninja:

    Have you ever wondered if Batman could be done in a cheesier, yet infinitely more fun way than the 1966 version? Well look no further because "Batman Ninja" is here.

    The things that are great about Junpei Mizusaki's film might be off-putting for some. However, fans of the absurdity that can happen in a comic book or an anime will be mighty pleased after viewing this. The film is certainly not shy of anime/comic cliches, in fact…
