    Broken Blade: Book Two - The Split Path

    ★★★½

    Still not too sure of the story or how I feel about the main character but there are lots of battles and I was a bit surprised by the violence and deaths of major characters. I'm actually interested to see where they go with this.

    This is far and away my favorite film directed by John Cassavetes. I've been pretty lukewarm with his films in general but this one drew me in with the duality of Gena Rowlands performance. My favorite part were the stage scenes even if the ending was a bit underwhelming. Also as with most of the films I've seen by Cassavetes this one runs too long, a good 45 minutes too long.

    ★★★

    Over all this was a decent superhero film. I liked the actors and I liked the fact that most of the cast were black. However that might actually be part of the problem, because all they seemed to do was take the same tired old story and character template and switch all the white characters and made them black and made the token character white. so while nearly all the characters are black with the token white guy it all…

    ★★★

    An interesting movie filled with rambling mumbo jumbo dialogue and random scenes of people doing random things. It's is a kind of absurdest film noir with a science fiction ideological core.
