    ★★

    I was excited to see an 80s neon gore take on Cat People (with a David Bowie penned theme to boot) but it ultimately just feels like they muddled up what was a very clear and concise film with an air of Twilight Zone mystery and made it unnecessarily long and melodramatic.

    If anything, at least it gave me a better appreciation of the original/

    The Curse of the Cat People

    ★★★

    Imagine being a fan of the original and then showing up to the theater to see this and how disappointing the lack of horror film tropes must have been.

    Not a bad film all in all. Kinda wish it was its own separate thing as it manages to achieve a very specific and unique atmosphere with its depiction of childhood loneliness and random Christmastime subplot.

    ★★★★

    I hated this book. Author Gillian Flynn seems to have never heard the idiom "show don't tell." And yet somehow, despite also writing the screenplay, this is still an excellent movie. There are times when the dialog really took me out of the film, but it never gets anywhere near as awful as the dialog in the book where everyone talks like they're on an episode of Full House run through an internet meme filter and given an R rating.

    I never realized I wanted to see Lisa Bonet naked until it was already happening.
