  • T-Men

    T-Men

    ★★

    Well made, but negligible. Too much narration that operates like government propaganda.

  • 31

    31

    ★★

    Too much stupid, but it is kinda fun and paced enjoyably.

    If you're wondering why there's a little Nazi speaking Spanish, there's also a Confederate Flag hung up in the van with two black men riding along. Multi-racial white supremacy is an underdeveloped theme of the movie.

  • Ghosthouse

    Ghosthouse

    ★★

    A clunky mix of US and Italian horror, but with enough deaths, laughs, and catchy spooky music to entertain big horror fans. If Fulci made The House By The Cemetery with a twenty-something-aged cast and a vibe like Return of the Living Dead.

  • Diary of a Shinjuku Thief

    Diary of a Shinjuku Thief

    ★★

    Painfully Brechtian. My least favorite film by Jean-Luc Go—er, I mean Nagisa Oshima. "The Man Who Left His Will On Film" is similar, but much better. Watch "Diary..." if you're a completist of some kind.

  • Horsemen

    Horsemen

    ★★

    A lazy and generic rip-off of Se7en.
