  • Sorority Row

    Sorority Row

    ★★★★

    “This can’t be Megan - she’s rotting in a mineshaft.”

    So I definitely had underrated this before. Following a re-listen of Attack of the Queerwolf’s podcast episode, I thought I’d give the film
    another go.

    It is so, so funny. Leah Pipes is legitimately *awesone*, her line delivery is just perfect. (“Add me on Facebook? I’ll totally confirm.”) Some of the other cast don’t seem to know what film they’re in - it just adds to the fun.

    Semi enjoyable Z grade DTV soap opera trash that copies the melodrama of the original without the wit, substance or technical skill, and where most of the budget appears to have gone on clearing the rights to a soundtrack of beige/shit soft rock and “indie” non-tunes.

Patrick’s character arc is particularly…

    Carlito's Way

    ★★★★

    A blank spot on my De Palma watchlist finally checked: I for some reason had always decided or heard that Carlito’s Way was sort of lower-tier in his filmography. I loved it. What I’d say is it’s fairly straightforward cinematically - at least as far as Brian De Palma films going - there are some stunning sequences (the boat, the escalators) and jolting, sudden acts of insanely choreographed violence. But, little in the way of crash zooms, diopter shots, split…
