    The Nun

    β˜…β˜…

    The Nun represents some of the worst elements of modern horror, a stupid plot, over-reliance on jump-scares and almost no substance at all.

    "I'm French-Canadian." Is quite possibly one of the worst one-liners I've ever heard in my entire life.

    Also, having never seen any other movies from The Conjuring franchise I sort of just assumed that Taissa Farmiga was playing the younger version of Vera Farmiga's character, but apparently their characters aren't supposed to be related at all? So, that also gives this movie quite possibly one of the most confusing casting choices I'ver ever seen.

    Visually Unsane channels Lynch's INLAND EMPIRE but story-wise it has a distinctly more straight-forward and mainstream sensibility. This movie did manage to genuinely surprise me, and I enjoyed it considerably more than I expected. It pulls the rug out a few too many times in my opinion, but overall Soderbergh crafts an engaging thriller.

    Why in hell isn't Satoshi Kon generally thought of in the same way as Miyazaki and Takahata?

    β˜…β˜…β˜…β˜…Β½

    South Korea, how are you so good? Literally no country on Earth does twisty, smart and socially-minded thrillers like you.

    Kim Hye-ja's performance has to be one of the best ever.
