    Tokyo Ghoul

    ★★★★

    Absolutely loved. Do I agree that it was too short? Not at all. While it helps to be familiar with the anime and characters, I think even a newbie coming in would have no problem understanding who was who and what was going on. The effects were good, not overly exaggerated and Kaneki was well portrayed. I would love a Part 2.

    Don't Sleep

    ★★

    I like to think that I understood this film to some degree, unfortunately the title of the movie doesn't fit with the actual plot. While I did the concept of the film, it seemed to be unable to make up its mind of what exactly it wanted to be (a horror movie? Demonic love story? Long forgotten myth? A study in psychiatric disorders?) I would love to hear the director's take on all of this.

    ★★★★½

    8 minutes in and I was screaming like a kid.....loved it. I can't believe it took me until the sequel to figure what Mick's problem was, but I think I was just too caught up in his madness to really focus on it.

    Kill Bill: Vol. 1

    ★★★★★

    This is an in-your-face, take-no-prisoners, I-will-slice-the-top-of-your-head-off-if-you-don't-stop-playing type of movie that will enthrall you from beginning to end. My god, the blood that runs in this movie is nothing short of epic and the plot is just ballsy. Uma Thurman threw down in this film and commanded the respect she so deserved. I sat in the theater, watching this, going, "Holy damn....."

    "WHERE'S BILL???" (I love that scene.)
