    The Dead Don't Die

    ★★

    The Dead Don't Die centers on a zombie apocalypse as experienced within a small town, very much akin to classic zombie movies like Night of the Living Dead. Much like the zombies within the film, though, The Dead Don’t Die is a slow and dreadful movie, and not even the cast can piece it back together.

    The Bloodhound

    ★★★

    This seems to be a pretty big hidden gem of this year that not a lot of people have seen despite it being quite short at a little over an hour long. Comparisons can be made to last years The Lighthouse, and the overall visual terror Eggers employs, or even stylings akin to Yorgos Lanthimos' work. Acting can be pretty stiltedly hollow at times; it can be hard to tell if always intentional, but distracting nontheless. Lots of aspects of…

    ★★★½

    Nia DaCosta nails the horror here with some extremely frightening and artfully creative imagery. It was funny seeing this after going to a fine art school for four years as the characters felt very realistic and the titular art exhibit that the lead creates at the start of the film is actually something with thought behind it that I'd love to see in a real gallery. There's also some sick body horror I wasn't expecting going into this.

    Evangelion: 3.0+1.0 Thrice Upon a Time

    ★★★★

    It has its issues, as I expected coming off the back of the other Rebuild movies, but 3.0+1.0 wraps up this tetralogy perfectly. End of Evangelion was life changing to me and I couldn't imagine another way for Evangelion to end than with that film; this series is different, however. It's remembering the past, but at the same time forging what is new. I appreciate the quiet contemplation of the first hour to welcome in the confused insanity of the…

    The Neighbors' Window

    This feels like an insult to my intelligence as a viewer and to my emotions at a whole. It is so painfully obvious what this short is trying to tell you because of how violently it thrusts it's message onto the screen- the message being sometimes one upper middle class white family isn't better than another upper middle class family despite how it might seem on the outside. At the same time, though, it really has nothing to do with…

    The Perfect Human

    ★★★★

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

    Jørgen Leth is bringing these mundane tasks of these humans to our attention by saying they are perfect. These people aren't perfect, though, and throughout the film we can visibly see them slightly messing up in imperfect ways (like accidentally moving the plate slightly when serving food, or not cutting the nails properly). So this asks the question of why the narrator is telling us these people are perfect?

    For one, it could be that we are all perfect, and…
