    There's a shot in which we see two rivers joining to become one; one is cloudy with dirt while the other is clear, but after combining into one the clear water disappears. It's a beautiful and subtle metaphor for the way that war (and violence more generally) clouds everything, destroying the beauty of nature.

    If Street Trash and Trainspotting had a sentient killer placenta baby, it’d be Body Melt.

    HOOPTOBER #8: Satan/Devil-Centered Films

    There are two things that bug me about the movie:

    1) The female character becomes sickly and the plot is taken over by her boyfriend in the last act

    Extra points for being the only horror movie I'll probably watch this year featuring a cat birthday party!

    This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    A deeply unsatisfying end to both the trilogy and the Skywalker saga.



    –I was hit emotionally by a lot of the nostalgia bombs aimed directly at me (Chewie's reaction to Leia's death, Chewie getting his medal, anything around Leia, the Jedi voices, etc.)

    –Keri Russell's character was a welcome addition to the cast, with a cool costume design to boot, even if her main purpose is to ensure we know that Poe is heterosexual (boo).…
