    Resident Evil: Apocalypse

    ★★★★

    Not devoid of problems, this still winds up being an interesting concoction of action, zombie thriller.  Plus the change of focus and use of various cameras and loudspeakers keeps the point of view from growing stale.

    Best characteristic of this film is how everyone comes together against a common enemy.  Great popcorn flick and nothing more.

    ★★★★

    Still powerful and breathtaking especially in an era of emotional support animals.  The perfection of the film is not only in shot after shot of perfect framing and timing, but how easy Morris makes it look.

    ★★★★½

    Standard setting biopic that goes to the trouble of exploring a complicated man who lived an interesting life. It wasn't one situation or trauma that this film sets out to examine but a series that haunted Malcolm to the end. He wasn't a saint but he was, by his own words, a man.

    I used to think Do The Right Thing was Spike Lee's most masterful joint. I was wrong. Do The Right Thing, Jungle Fever, Clockers, Malcolm X all…

    Suspiria

    ★★★★

    One of the most beautifully shot and executed horror films I've ever seen. The soundtrack is almost useless. Too over the top and actually took me out of the film several times.

    But I'd watch it again. The use of memory, terror, elaborate death scenes are unforgettable.
