    The Fury


    Come for sinister John Cassavetes, stay for 62 year old Kirk Douglas doing stunts in his underwear. 

    De Palma gets strong work from Douglas, whose wild performance oscillates between manic and sensitive. While watching, I kept thinking how this would make an interesting double bill with Scanners. Beyond the obvious kinship they share as telepathy-themed paranoid thrillers there’s key differences in the aesthetics both filmmakers employ— De Palma’s lively formalism vs. Cronenberg’s cold distance.

    The most emo peanuts movie, and peanuts is already emo as hell to begin with.

    Army of Darkness


    This movie has Three Stooges style slapstick gags AND heaps of practical effects and stop motion skeletons. What more could you want? That’s cinema, baby.
