• Enemy of the State

    Enemy of the State

    A movie so eerily ahead of its time & on the nose that the villain’s birthday is literally 9/11. I’ve yet to see a Tony Scott movie I don’t like, it’s just bangers on bangers with him

  • Last Action Hero

    Last Action Hero

    Schwarzenegger’s riff on Hamlet in this is better than The Northman 🧢

  • Crash

    Crash

    Takes down bad to a horrifying new level. Earns its NC-17 rating like I’ve rarely seen before, way more fucked up than Titane. If Crimes of the Future’s marketing prioritizing Cronenberg as the director of this is any indication, buckle the fuck up

  • The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen

    The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen

    “Growl.”

    One of those movies where you can clearly see every production problem you read about onscreen. A gray, public domain nightmare.

  • The Quick and the Dead

    The Quick and the Dead

    Raimi’s trademark kineticism matches well with the inherent stillness & tension of a Western duel, & it’s always a blast to be reminded how well he plays around in an R-rated space. Just a delightful romp with a wonderful rogues gallery of character actors who all have memorable quirks, & familiar as the narrative may be, the premise is direct & to the point, & the performances more than keep this afloat. Sam doesn’t miss!

  • Candyman

    Candyman

    Insane to me that this says so much more in any given piece of dialogue, location work, or shot choice than the reboot does in its entirety

  • The Beast of War

    The Beast of War

    What if the tank scene from Last Crusade was a movie? It would unequivocally bang

  • Wishmaster 2: Evil Never Dies

    Wishmaster 2: Evil Never Dies

    I will never tell someone, “go fuck yourself,” ever again. Get on these movies right now. For me, there was before I saw Wishmaster & Wishmaster 2: Evil Never Dies, & now there is after

  • The Blair Witch Project

    The Blair Witch Project

    At one point, Heather says, “woke up this morning,” & my roommate & I instinctively said aloud, “🎶got some gabagool🎵“

    Fr tho, this is one of the most immersive movies I’ve ever seen. The shifting formats (video & 16mm) & beyond authentic acting (some of the best ever?!) make this feel alarmingly real.

  • Sinister

    Sinister

    Eh. I remember liking this well enough a few years back but find that it just does so little for me now. Feels like it’s taking itself way too seriously for what it is without a strong enough foundation for that. It’s also super underlit, & so little happens plot wise that I question the need for its length. Mr. Boogie is also difficult to take seriously, at least for me. Kinda boring, but still has some solid scares & atmosphere, & only…

  • Book of Shadows: Blair Witch 2

    Book of Shadows: Blair Witch 2

    Rarely have I seen a movie start with so much promise go downhill so fast. The editing reminds me of the appropriation/remix projects I have for class. A new so bad it’s good classic, love the sheriff

  • MouseHunt

    MouseHunt

    I remember seeing this when I was super young & being grossed out. Turns out it’s fucking hilarious, with vibrant production design whose destruction is gleefully relished in & Sam Raimi level slapstick that borders on the kiddie equivalent of torture. File this under children’s movies that should never be watched by children
