    ★★★

    Performances and camerawork are effective and efficient, but poorly considered characters, unnecessary plot lines, and conclusion may mar enjoyment.

    Head of the Family

    ★★★

    A weird family, a biker, and a cheap hood walk into a diner.

    Not quite, but this crime and mutant family comedy is better than expected. I'm sure some Letterboxd literati will rate this higher than me, but the exposition scenes, low budget effects, and oddball nature aren't for everyone. It's sort of a bright, goofy version of a Cohen or Hennenlotter film.

    ★★★★

    A thoroughly 1987 movie, 'The Hidden' stars Kyle MacLachlan and his perfect coif chasing the murderer of his partner and family. The story has elements of Carpenter's 'The Thing', MacLachlan's uneasy portrayal, and the worst part of the synth score from the 'The Terminator'.

    If you're a fan of John Carpenter's sci-fi movies, 'Invasion of the Body Snatchers', or a stripper shooting a pump shotgun at cops, this movie might be for you.

    ★★★★

    This isn’t the movie Mega City 1 deserves, but it is the movie Mega City 1 needs. A violent, dark dystopia wherein Judges enforce the law with no remorse. In other words, fairly faithful to the comics I’ve read.

    The best comparison in terms of plot, tone, and production design is the first half of The Raid before all of the hand to hand combat began. 

    A good double feature with the 1987 Robocop, this is too dark and violent for many.
