    The Hearse

    ★★

    Feels more like a TV movie of the week than a theatrically released film. Like others have said, the PG rating contributes to this, but there are plenty of PG horror films that do wonders within it's constraints such as Burnt Offerings and Legend Of Hell House. What makes this a chore is the ssslllooowww pace, the score that sounds like it's from a Quinn Martin production, the lack of anything supernatural happening for long periods of time.

    Ultraman Gaia: The Battle in Hyperspace

    ★★★★★

    Ultraman battles Kaiju in the real world where he is a toy and TV series character. A great movie with children as main characters in the human interest portion of the plot without being annoying as fuck like in the Gamera series of films. This would be a fantastic starter movie for kids to get their first taste of kaiju films.

    ★★★★

    A great original, modern horror movie that manages to nail metaphor and emotional social commentary while not being too intellectual. While taking place in modern day, the INCREDIBLE synth score and the suburban teenager plot made it feel like a lost Carpenter or Craven film from the '80's. Best blind purchase I have made in a long time.

    ★★★★

    Visually stunning, white knuckle inducing, superior shark effects, and with a perfect running time leaving very little opportunity for a viewer to get bored, I wish there were more shark movies this well made. Really kicking myself for not seeing this in theaters. Oh...and Blake Lively is a goddess!!
