Denis is a master working at the highest caliber imaginable. High Life is one of the most profound films for visuals and dynamic storytelling. I am left in utter disarray after finishing this film, and will have to take the time to properly process and revisit before I can come up with a cohesive opinion. But High Life is a sublime film that demands to be experienced, created by an auteur working at the highest standard.
Gaspar Noé is a man who is entirely comfortable with his craft. Climax is a culmination of the works that I have seen from him thus far, an explosive cacophony that only he can make. When this is released here in the US, people are going to absolutely hate it. It's going to be one of the most divisive films in recent history, and rightfully so. Here, Noé is at his most unbridled, offering another horrifying glimpse into his nightmares.…
I can honestly say that I haven’t seen a film like Night of the Kings in my life. Displaying the power that storytelling is, we get to distinctly differnet stories intertwining with each other. With the thrill of a prison drama and the awe of a classic epic, Night of the Kings proves just how strong storytelling, in any sense, can be.

The only real reason why I watched this was becuase it was filmed locally. But, it’s your run-of-the-mill Lifetime film, but still manages to be a fun watch because of its charm. The dialogue, though, was atrocious at time, and Mario Lopez seemed to be plastic for a majority of the film. Next week’s Once Upon a Main Street was filmed in my hometown a few months ago, so it will be interesting to see, but I can only imagine it will likely be just as cliched as this was.
Hitchcock is a master storyteller, and Vertigo is certainly one of his best stories yet.
What makes this film so intriguing is how complex it is. There are so many layers that are slowly revealed that lead to one of the greatest climaxes of all time. Hitchcock's slow burner slowly gives you the information, making you pay extreme attention to what is going on, or else you are going to be lost.

You're Next proves that horror/thriller films can be stunning with the right people making it.
You're Next is gritty, gory and surprisingly comedic. These elements have been working well together as of late! This film balances everything out and makes sure everything is done at the perfect time.
After watching this again, I actually enjoyed it more! I saw the comedic parts and just saw how amazing the filming was. Those grey tones and brown times are to die for! Hence, You're Next is one of the best horror/thrillers to come out in a long time.
