    Mortal Kombat: Rebirth


    Not sure that I’m into such a serious take on the concept of Mortal Kombat. The inherent campiness is a key component of what makes the franchise work so well. I’d still watch a full length version though.

    Cannibal Holocaust


    Exceptionally effective at what it sets out to do. It’s theme of “who are the real cannibals?” is maybe a little trite and on the nose, but it makes enough sense within the context of the film. Beautiful score, lots of striking imagery, unquestionably disturbing at times. It goes without saying that the real animal violence is completely unnecessary and unjustifiable. Certainly not for everyone, but what can I say, it works.
