    Edge of the Axe

    ★★★½

    When I watched this with a big group in high school, it was only because we thought it was funny that it starred our high school theatre teacher Barton Faulks (Gerald). Now, re-watching it about 6 years later and after hearing about it repeatedly mentioned on a couple of my favorite film podcasts, it's a lot better than I had given it credit for. It's fun and brutal with a cool looking slasher who has some great kills and a synth score that's a ton of fun! It's at times slow and a little dated but definitely worth a watch.

    Saying that this is my favorite film that came out in 2015 is a pretty big deal considering Mad Max: Fury Road, another film I love, also came out that same year. The cinematography by Roger Deakins is both beautiful and chilling. The same can be said for the film's brilliant script and perfect performances. I love this movie but I'm really only watching it again because I didn't go see Blade Runner 2049 tonight.

    mother! whomst?

    But seriously, if I had just gone next door and walked around Urban Outfitters for a couple hours, I think it would've had the same effect as watching this movie. It was boring, confusing, and pretentious. Luckily I was in an otherwise empty theater crackin' jokes with a few co-workers.

    Persepolis

    ★★★★½

    Proof that the Academy Awards are bullshit: Persepolis lost the Oscar for Best Animated Feature to Ratatouille. This French animated feminist coming-of-age masterpiece about an Iranian immigrant lost to a Disney movie about a cooking rat... What the fuck, Academy?!?
