• In the Earth

    In the Earth

    ★★★★½

    Ben Wheatley’s COVID lockdown experience must’ve been insane. I felt like I was tripping by the end of this movie, and now I am unsettled.

  • The Forever Purge

    The Forever Purge

    ★★½

    Same complaints with this one as the others in the series, but it was entertaining enough. I agree with the whole sentiment of fuck racists. Wish there was more of a fuck capitalism stance too.

  • Candyman

    Candyman

    ★★★★

    I really like what the filmmakers did here. As a direct sequel to the first film, Candyman (2021) is very much original, and it breathes some new life into the story without spoiling the legacy (like Candyman 2 and 3 tried to do). Honestly, if they decided to make a sequel to this one, I’d watch it.

  • The Voyeurs

    The Voyeurs

    ★½

    Yeah. This movie sucks.

  • Malignant

    Malignant

    ★★½

    Malignant just didn’t do it for me. It was pretty predictable. Lots of people are gushing about it, so I was expecting more. Maybe I got sucked into the hype.

  • Halloween Kills

    Halloween Kills

    ★★★★

    I really had a good time watching Halloween Kills (even ordered the soundtrack right after watching it), and can’t wait for Halloween Ends. I’m pretty impressed with David Gordon Green’s remakes. And who would ever thought Danny McBride would end up being a horror writer?

  • Bad Teacher

    Bad Teacher

    ★★★

    This is not a good movie by any means, but I thought it was hilarious tonight. Cameron Diaz is pretty great, Justin Timberlake is about the most punchable fucker you’ll ever see, and Jason Segel really steals the show and should be in more stuff.

  • Pick Me Up

    Pick Me Up

    ★★★½

    Michael Moriarty is absolutely insane in Pick Me Up, and I love it. Cohen and Moriarty are such a great team.

    There’s also a great diss to the 2003 remake of The Texas Chainsaw Massacre at the beginning, which I very much appreciate.

  • Incident On and Off a Mountain Road

    Incident On and Off a Mountain Road

    ★★★

    Wasn’t prepared for the twist and then the other twist. Decent entry into the Masters of Horror universe. Really wish another anthology series like this would come out.

  • Grown Ups

    Grown Ups

    ★★★

    This had to be just an excuse for Sandler to hang out with his friends and get paid. It’s really just a collection dad jokes.

  • Joker

    Joker

    ★★★★

    Finally got around to watching Joker, and I loved it. I waited to watch it due to the controversy that was swirling around it when it came out. Glad I waited. 

    Joaquin Phoenix is an absolute force of nature. If more superhero movies were like this, I’d watch superhero movies.

  • Candyman: Day of the Dead

    Candyman: Day of the Dead

    If Donna D’Errico is the star of the third film in a series, it’ll probably be the last film in the series. She wasn’t even relevant at the time Candyman 3 came out. I’m watching this in preparation (well, more like for my completist tendencies) for the new Candyman, which skips this entry and the second one for good reason.
