    ★★★★

    Never let it be said that Cage doesn't still have it in him to give a calm and quiet performance and still deliver. Wolff is shaping up to be impressive as well. It's hard to say much about this movie without giving a lot away because it's very rooted in emotion and relationships, so most big plot points won't seem like such unless you're already on the ride. Without giving much away, the scene about the pub is one of…

    Decently creepy, but you know it’s fiction because she uses Bing.

    Yellowface: Asian Whitewashing and Racism in Hollywood

    ★★★

    It’s an interesting movie, but it’s very limited in scope. It only has a few people being interviewed and focuses mainly on a small handful of films that depict the Japanese around the time of the war. I did learn quite a bit regarding the treatment of Japanese people around that time and I’m glad for that, but the title feels like it’s going to be broader so I was expecting more.

    Darkman II: The Return of Durant

    ★★½

    It feels like a two part episode of a Darkman TV series that blew all of its money on the opening car chase at the expense of continuity editing. The effects are mostly decent, but considering what happened to Durant at the end of the original is scar is a laughable consequence. At one point Darkman is wearing a henchman mask over his Peyton Westlake mask over his bandages, and then he takes off the Westlake mask and puts on…

    The Invisible Man

    ★★★½

    Elizabeth Moss is fantastic and manages to sell the whole thing, and considering how much of the movie is her by herself reacting to empty rooms that's no small feat. There are some super tense moments in this, and it's surprisingly light on jump scares for a Blumhouse movie*. My only big issue was the score. It's fine during quiet moments, but when scenes with more action are happening it becomes so loud and bombastic that it would almost be…

  • Demons 2

    Demons 2

    ★★★

    Basically a carbon copy of the original. Demons escape from a movie and people become trapped in a building, meanwhile a carload of punks is heading for the location. Eventually a new demon climbs out of someone. 
    The horror genre thrives on carbon copies though, and this one isn’t bad.  The scope is a bit bigger as the story expands to a state of the art apartment complex. The effects work is good and some of the demon designs are…
