    Friday the 13th: The Final Chapter

    ★★★

    Hoop-tober 3.0
    Other reviews: #1

    The 4th film in a rather disjointed series, Friday the 13th The Final Chapter was what a Halloween 2.5 would have been. The closing down of one chapter to open another that goes in a new direction. While Friday part 5 would suffer the same fate with fans as H3, part 4 has quite a bit going for it.

    Picking up the morning after part 3, it doesn’t really break any new ground, but it…

    Brubaker

    ★★★½

    Stuart Rosenberg returns to prison, where he had his greatest success with Cool Hand Luke, to loosely adapt a true story of a penologists tenure reforming a problematic and venal prison farm. The farm serves as a prison, and as a source of income for the state.

    Robert Redford is Brubaker, a man brought in by his states prison board to observe and take over Wakefield State Prison. The prison is overrun with vermin, graft, abuse and is in a…

    ★★★½

    Batshit. All over the place. Funny. Very funny. Kinda dumb. Certainly has its own vibe. Almost great but falls short and gets to caught up in trying to be audacious. Absolutely worth a watch. I assume that this is the closest we'll get to seeing the real Cage.

    Night of the Living Dead

    ★★★★½

    This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    Dear 1968:

    We made a film that has the following:

    -Female protagonist.
    -Whoops! Now an African-American protagonist.
    -It is in black & white.
    -It's all in one night! All in one one house!
    -We wait forever to even kind of tell you what's going on
    -People eat other people! You even get to see it!
    -Women die!
    -Kids die!
    -Kids kill their folks!
    -Brothers kill sisters!
    -Wait, everyone dies!
    -Whatever was happening has no conclusion!

    Please enjoy our film,

    George A.…

  • WALL·E

    WALL·E

    ★★★★½

    I don't feel like going on about something right now, but I WILL say this:

    WALL*E is the best love story I can think of, going back to at least When Harry Met Sally, and one of the sweetest and most effective I've ever seen. How far you have fallen so quickly Pixar. After Up, it has been nothing but down. (ba-dum-bum)
