  • The Thing

    The Thing

    ★★★★½

    This still holds up so well. I was so into it I forgot to review it the other week.

    Very engaging, very gross, amazing practical effects. I still get that "missed a step" feeling in my chest at the defibrillator scene.

  • The Hateful Eight

    The Hateful Eight

    ★★★½

    I was super into it for the first three chapters, after that felt weaker.

    I did pause right at the transition, so that may have affected my opinion, but I don't think it affected it much. The pacing and style changed, and that weird narration popped up after the third chapter.

    I think this would have been a great one shot pen and paper rpg adventure (dnd, Delta Green, something like that).

  • Hereditary

    Hereditary

    ★★★★½

    Oh boy. This movie.

    I left the theatre intensely unsettled. It was slow, but not boring. A 2 hour exercise in reminding myself to breathe. I'm a horror fan, who is generally not disturbed by horror. I think the last time I was disturbed was Old Boy, or maybe Antichrist. This movie really got to me.

    The following might be considered spoilers, but I'm keeping them vague. Don't read further if you want to be 100% surprised. I highly recommend…

  • Halloween II

    Halloween II

    ★★½

    Worse than the first, just.... Boring.

    Also a lot of "meh" character development for Michael.

    His mask also feels a little off (also if they put so much effort into continuity between the first and the second, why let the most important part of Michael feel different?)

    The main redeeming factor is that it still has some cool off focus kills and sightings of Michael, but they are much more rare than the first and generally less creepy.
