    The Jigsaw Murders

    ★★½

    For years I thought that this was a TV movie, what with that stupid title and the fact that it stars Chad Everett. But nope, it’s a full blown R-rated sleazy thriller. It’s also goofy as hell... something you usually don’t get in your typical serial killer thrillers. I don’t know if I can call it good, but it’s certainly something.

    My favorite part of it is how many scenes there are where you can literally hear the camera running.

    American Yakuza

    ★★½

    A second act revelation negates what was a promising tale of an ex-con (Virgo Mortensen) saving a member of the Yakuza and then joining their ranks. Could have been interesting, instead becomes mundane because of the all too familiar plot twist. Robert Forster is wasted as “mild mannered FBI man”. Great action scene in the first 30 minutes though.

    The movie that's running on the monitors in the waiting rooms for Hell.

    Batman Returns

    ★★★★½

    Superior in every conceivable way to the first Michael Keaton BATMAN. Not only is Keaton perfect again, but so are Danny DeVito, Michelle Pfeiffer and Christopher Walken. The scene where Bruce Wayne and Selena Kyle discover each other's alter egos still gives me a rush, and I can't tell you how many times I say "You've got kind of a dark side, don't ya?" to other people. Great dynamics and themes going on all over the place in this one.
