    BLACKPINK: Light Up the Sky

    ★½

    There's a compelling documentary to be made about the KPOP factories that churn out these generic groups and all the young performers who get chewed up and spit out by them but unfortunately this isn't it. Light Up the Sky is a feature-length press release that is easy on the eyes but leaves you knowing less about the subjects than when you started.

    Disliked this on a really visceral level. Everything in it screamed both wannabe auteur, and written and directed by men. It's further diminished when put next to the far superior dance-horror of Climax.

    This one should be studied in film schools. Every single decision Rob Zombie was asked to make on this film he decided wrongly.

    Halloween II

    ★★★★

    It's insane how much better this is than Rob Zombie's first Halloween attempt. Hell, better than the rest of his oeuvre to date. It's so incredibly focused on Laurie's ptsd and parallels with her brother Michael that there is no room for Zombie's usual excesses and diversions. The theatrical cut is clearly superior to the unrated version so it's a shame only the latter is present on the blu ray box set (or blu ray at all in the USA).
