    Train to Busan

    ★★★½

    Action packed + horrifyingly *fast* zombies + beautiful people you don’t want to die. Good horror x train flick.

  • The Northman

    The Northman

    ★★★★½

    “I will show the shepherd his death.” ~ Mythology as horror. Rituals as preparation for bloodshed. Old earthen people existing in an unimaginably demon-haunted and violent world, freed of everything but their next earthy action. Except when Fate gets involved and casts them hurtling toward immortality. Kingship and blood lines and vengeance are the throughlines of the myth of Amleth / Hamlet / Son of Cain and Abel.

    Halloween III: Season of the Witch

    ★★★

Evil billionaire who made his money doing pranks(??) and controls the TV (nationally?

And he needed to steal Stonehenge to do it. Lmao. Oh…

    Hamlet

    ★★★★★

    “Words without thoughts never to Heaven go.” ~ Entering the mad dream of Hamlet, modernized and performed with hyper-real minutia from the actors, especially Andrew Scott. The existential drama of grief, depression, rage, and passion is played out primarily on Scott’s pained countenance, from his whispers and screams of impossibly rich dialogue and monologue. Whether it's madness or performance, Hamlet’s game sources from a *true* passion; the play is the dream of his mind’s real turning, presented with every painstaking shift and evolution for us to see. Who gave more thought to his words than Shakespeare’s Hamlet? That is why his words still reside with us.
