    A functional, technically proficient loaf of Entertainment™.

    ★★★★

    It had been just long enough that there were moments that I forgot about: Dr. Loomis scaring away kids from the old Meyers place, the "exiting" of the masked breathing from the empty house at the very end.
    Still potent, still worth seeing on the big screen if you ever have a chance to.
    Shout outs to Shudder for hosting a screening of it for subscribers at the IFC Center and to Joe Bob Briggs for introducing it (and giving the drive-in totals).

    ★★★★½

    Due to my schedule, I usually catch a film and then race by bike to work. Getting off the bike, my hands were still trembling. It wasn't a particularly harrowing route. It was Fury Road.

    "You don't understand. We trained this guy. He's seen every season of 24, even the tv movies. He's mastered every Splinter Cell game. He can recite Tom Clancy passages from memory. He cannot be photographed unless he is holding a gun. And we gave him that gun."
