    Mission: Impossible - Fallout

    ★★★★½

    The Year is 2018: Ranked and Reviewed

    There's something truly special about this latest Mission: Impossible installment, and it might just be the unstoppable, absurd, and winning nature of Tom Cruise. From jumping out of a plane to flying a helicopter to speeding through the streets of Paris on a motorbike, the actor has attributed to Ethan Hunt's greatest mission yet. Fallout is an action powerhouse of stunts, chases, shootouts, and death-defying deeds, crafted at the hands of Chrisopher McQuarrie.…

    A Bay of Blood: A Ranking of Slashers (1974 - 1990)

    Looking at a list of 70s British slasher, there really isn't a lot to choose from—in fact, I don't recall ever being exposed to one, except for now—and maybe it's for good reason.

Emergency-red brightness cascading on victims and heroes, drowning in an dissolute echo of dread. An urge to fight, run, and creep. A shitstorm of a night for the characters and the audience. A hell-bent creation of freaks and…

    Blade Runner 2049

    ★★★★½

    The Year is 2017: Ranked and Reviewed

    The wettest kind of consciousness, percolating memories that flood with no specific significance, nor cascade with the true essence of meaning—they sit, stir, and rattle the brain with all of its attempts at explanation. Beckoning an existential gaze that beautifies the believers and the heroes—surrounded in a stream of fake electronic components and fake matter. To these wanderers, life is fenced in and forgotten, intact with their provisions and protocol—this is the future,…
