    Strange Days

    ★★★★½

    Great slice of '90s cyberpunk. Honestly this reminded me of a sort of Videodrome/The Crow hybrid. Those are 2 of my favorite films hence why I loved Strange Days. I feel like Ralph Fiennes definitely based his performance off of James Woods' character in Videodrome lol. The plot here is mad entertaining, but it's the cast that really elevates it. Angela Bassett was an especially dope heroine, and the supporting cast is full of familiar faces who all do a great job. My only gripe is that this needed more Michael Wincott.

    Anguish

    ★★★★

    An absolute gem, and if you're a big fan of Lamberto Bava's Demons than this should go to the top of your watchlist! Anguish spectacularly uses the movie within a movie gimmick and also that fun '80s movie theatre setting to perfection. I wish there were more films that did this.

    Congo

    ★★★½

    Congo has my vote for the greatest bad film of all time. Things that make it awesome include but are certainly not limited to: an outrageously campy scene where Delroy Lindo calmly requests then promptly and inexplicably shouts "STOP EATING MY SESAME CAKE", murderous grey gorillas, silly Bruce Campbell, avaricious Joe Don Baker, charismatic Joe Pantoliano, The Lost City of Zinj (aka King Solomon's Mines with a more exotic name), Amy the talking gorilla, and of course Tim Curry's preposterous character, Herkermer Homolka, who is more obsessed with diamonds than anyone ever.

    Finally watched in HD thanks to the region free Shameless blu I got for Christmas! This is seriously the most underrated and especially underseen giallo on LB. In my top 3 always. <3
