    Friday the 13th Part VI: Jason Lives

    ★★★★

    Jason belongs in hell. And I’m going to see he gets there. 

    Woah? That was really good! After a few bad to so-so to just good entries in the franchise, JASON LIVES finally sees the series at its peak. It finally takes full advantage of its concept, has a really fun plot with campy tongue-in-cheek humor, and a vibrant distinct cast of characters.
          While I prefer the Tommy Jarvis from the last film (his intensity, violent outbursts and PTSD…

    ★★★★★

    Come on baby, don’t fear the reaper. 

    Michael Myers as a natural disaster, as a whirlpool of death and malevolence, as a random act of god—or a machination of the devil himself. It is inevitable and unavoidable.

Carpenter captured lighting in a bottle here; an atmosphere of impending dread that’s not been seen again in this series. Singular, terrifying, masterclass.

    Happy Halloween, lock your doors.

THE DEER KING neatly checks those boxes for me. While I don’t think it that strong of a film, I found it to be sufficient enough for me to enjoy! Gorgeous animation from Production I.G. and the story of Van and Yuna finding happiness with each other in…

    ★★★★½

    “What am I going to do?”
    “Just keep moving.”

    Fucking christ, that was a great film.

    IN BRUGES is pondering quite a few heavy ideas throughout its run time. What is justice? Is redemption possible—can people change? Does living a life a good outweigh your past sins? Sure, this might be basic PHI101 discussion points. However, the film manages to be thematically compelling, conflicting, and deeply empathetic with its presentation it’s dilemmas.

    Colin, once again, gives an incredible performance and…

    The "kill your gays" trope continues to ruin every LGBT film that interests me.
