    Tetsuo: The Iron Man

    ★★★★★

    64 minutes of metal sexual body horror injected straight into you via a 20 inch power drill dick.

    ★★★★★

    I probably saw Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon 4 times in the theater back in 2000 when it first came out. I was taking Mandarin in school at the time and we were all very excited to see it, to listen to it and to be immersed in it.

    Back then the action was what stood out to me. Masterfully choreographed and able to balance a whimsical and serious tone the whole time all while adding to the story and the…
