    Audrie & Daisy

    It doesn't feel right trying to give this film a star rating, so I'm not going to do it. It's worth watching, and it's worth showing to your own teenagers if you've got them. Believe women. Believe girls. Fight rape culture.

  • Thor: Ragnarok

    Thor: Ragnarok

    ★★★★

    Uggggh. I was sure I was done with Marvel movies, but this one was just so damn fun. I like fun.

    ★½

    Set design by La Quinta.

  • The Thing

    The Thing

    ★★★★★

    What can I say about this movie that hasn't already been said? It's one of the all-time greats of cinema, let alone of the horror genre.

  • Black Sunday

    Black Sunday

    ★★★★½

    Black Sunday starts with one of the most intense opening scenes in a horror movie of any period, and doesn't let up its sense of dread and horror for the rest of the film. Bava pulls his punches a bit at the end, which I found a little disappointing, but overall this is a genre classic that any horror movie fan should see.

  • Little Evil

    Little Evil

    ★★★

    As someone who's in an unconventional parenting situation myself, I appreciated the sentiment behind this movie. Everything else about it... ehh.

  • The Neon Demon

    The Neon Demon

    ★★★

    Well, it's not a very good movie but it is a very good-LOOKING movie.

  • Patton Oswalt: Annihilation

    Patton Oswalt: Annihilation

    ★★★★

    There's a lot of strong, moving, personal material that is among some of the best stuff Oswalt has done. But then he ends on a pretty week bit about referencing pornos when pitching a kids' movie, and it just kind of seemed tacked on to fill out the hour. Still, it's a must-watch for fans of stand-up and/or fans of Oswalt himself.

  • Ouija: Origin of Evil

    Ouija: Origin of Evil

    ★★

    This movie got some decent word of mouth when it came out. You know what, though? It sucks. Full stop. It's just a bad movie. Don't watch it. Don't watch this bad movie.

  • I Walked with a Zombie

    I Walked with a Zombie

    ★★★½

    Much better than the Zack Snyder remake, I Ran with a Zombie.

  • Cat People

    Cat People

    ★★★

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

    This film is an interesting allegory for someone suffering from mental illness. The patriarchal overtones undercut its effectiveness, though, as the blandly affable male lead strolls off into the night with the more emotionally stable woman after the "That crazy bitch was crazy after all" ending. Ugh. I'd like to see a remake where that guy gets clawed to shreds.

    The Devil's Candy

    ★★★½

    Nice try, The Devil.
