    Rosemary's Baby

    ★★★★★

    Roman Polanski you have left me speechless.
    THIS is how horror is done. Polanski crafts a chilling masterpiece in Rosemary's Baby by creating underlying tension that slowly but surely builds up throughout the entire film. This movie is a mystery that keeps the viewer guessing until the infamous conclusion that is one of the most terrifying conclusions I have ever seen. Mia Farrow is fantastic as Rosemary. She is vulnerable and one can only help but root for her as…

  • The Stanford Prison Experiment

    The Stanford Prison Experiment

    ★★★★½

    Gritty and engaging from start to finish The Stanford Prison Experiment seems more like a guerilla-style documentary than a feature length motion picture.

    ★★★★★

    I have come to a simple conclusion in life; if David Fincher is the director then I must watch it!

  • Who Framed Roger Rabbit

    Who Framed Roger Rabbit

    ★★★★½

    Finally watched this unique and charming Disney gem!
    Who Framed Roger Rabbit boasts an insanely original screenplay and visual effects that still hold up marvelously well. Its whacky premise and characters make for an engaging view. The blend of live-action and animation is effortless and not tacky in any way. The humor is done exceptionally as it combines slapstick and risqué without trying too hard to please the adults watching the movie.
    This is not only pure Disney magic but also pure Disney intelligence!
