    "It's the only look I got."

    That line says so much about so many things, and there's a reason it gets repeated twice. When you set your mind to something and will do anything to achieve it, no matter what it is, the best only allow themselves one look. For Maverick the character or for Tom Cruise the movie star, it's the only look they both have because they are the A1 absolute best at what they do. Being a…

    This reminds me so much of the horror movies from 2003-2006 in the way that I remember sitting there in a multiplex theater and not really believing what was happening up on the screen. Ti West's "X" reminds me, tonally, of The Texas Chainsaw Massacre ('03), The Devils Rejects, The Hills Have Eyes remake, and Wolf Creek, amongst others. The stories are pretty simple, but there's a lot goin' on that's just weird, wild stuff that you don't see since…

    This is such a banger to contrast with The Black Phone. When Scott Derrickson knows what kind of a film he wants, what kind of an ending he wants, he makes it so that it corresponds perfectly with the previous 100 or whatever minutes you just watched. That's not to say that there aren't any surprises here. I hadn't watched this in quite a bit and came away shocked at how unsettling & effective the ending is. Shocked at the ending he got away with - maybe even more now as opposed to when it came out.

    “Every stupid word of yours is a deposit at the pain bank!”

    -an exploitation film version of McConaughey in the lead
    -fun as heck, bubbly ensemble cast
    -great campy villain/creature/monster
    -outrageous/fun quotes, as you see obviously see above

    I never would've watched this without it being shown by Joe Bob but I'm glad it was.

    Subtlety is overrated. Funny is funny. Truth is truth.

    After positive word of mouth from festival premieres, I’ve been looking forward to this for a while (like many others). After some delays, it’s evident Blumhouse knew what they had and waited for a prime release date because this is good. This should be a hit. Luckily was able to go to an early release, and it was packed and it plays wonderfully hype. It’s got laughs and some of the best and funniest line readings of the year by…
