    31

    ★★★½

    "In the end, 31, despite its bad reputation, is an engaging experience of a film, especially when viewed as a video game in film format, and one that has more than its share of merits to be deemed at least worth watching."

    Persona

    ★★★★

    David Lynch really saw this movie once and then based most of his filmography around it, huh?

    My alternate title for Persona: Saint Alma or: How I Learned to Stop Analyzing and Love the Experimental Film.

    The Invisible Man

    ★★★★½

    THIS is how you successfully modernize and reboot a well-known property.

    Y'all, I have not been so genuinely scared since Hereditary (or maybe even mother!) This could have so easily been a disaster, but Elisabeth Moss giving yet another amazing performance combined with Leigh Whannell's direction and the expert use of negative space and sound design kept me on the damn edge the whole time. I really think Whannell deserves Master of Horror status since this is the third film…
