  • Evil Dead II

    Evil Dead II


    I wrote a new article for BW/DR all about Evil Dead II, a movie that gets written about all the time but I decided to challenge myself to analyze it from a different angle. Specifically, I wrote about how it feels like a parallel to Sam Raimi’s filmmaking journey from true indie to professional. Also the genius of Bruce Campbell’s perfect comedic timing. Here’s an excerpt: 

    What makes Evil Dead II so sublime is its arch sense of self-awareness. Where the…

    Women will literally pay Colin Firth $5000 to psychologically assault them in a five star hotel instead of going to therapy. 

    Big props to Edith for suggesting this brilliantly perverted and cruel thriller! Jennifer Rubin plays an actress wannabe who signs up for acting lessons with a sadistic coach who teaches through psychological torture and ends up holding her hostage for three days.

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

    Oh god, what a load of shit. The best I can say about this is that the illustration style is beautiful. Oh and if you ever wanted to see a clam go to town on a snail, or an alligator eat out a woman, this is the movie for you.

    This movie is for your penis, by your penis and about your penis. I'm having a very hard time seeing where anybody saw 'feminism' in this other than the weird…

    The Way We Were


    This isn't the story about people who drift apart because of politics, this is the story of a woman with convictions (whether you agree with them or not) and intelligence, and a wuss-ass (drop dead beautiful) white boy who has never had to care about or fight for anything in his life.

    They're initially attracted to each other because they each have something the other wishes they could possess. For Redford, Streisand represents the exciting world of fringe living, of…
