  • The Human Tornado

    The Human Tornado

    ★★★½

    Rudy Ray's follow up to DOLEMITE. The production values are mildly better, while retaining the original's "let's put on a show" spirit.
    Ernie Hudson appears in this. In the credits, he's billed as Louis Hudson. Why? No idea. I looked up an AV Club Random Roles interview with him, and the only anecdote he had about the movie was "we had a caterer who only served spaghetti."

  • Universal Soldier: Day of Reckoning

    Universal Soldier: Day of Reckoning

    ★★★★

    Mostly spectacular, almost like Gaspar Noe's TERMINATOR 2 WITH SOME MEMENTO THROW IN THERE BUT ALSO IT'S UNIVERSAL SOLDIER. I pretty much loved the bulk of it, but the wrap-up is still muddled and confusing and I was a little baffled by some stuff. Still, I thought this was, for the most part, outstanding.

    Master and Commander: The Far Side of the World

    ★★★★★

    In my preferred universe, this movie made a billion dollars and has a dozen sequels and there's a Lil' Master prequel cartoon and kids would yearn to grow up to be naval commanders. Instead it didn't even make $100 mil in the US and they haven't made another one. Bah.

  • Under the Skin

    Under the Skin

    ★★★

    Some of the most remarkable imagery I've ever seen, and I was antsy about an hour in. Fascinating and frustrating in equal measure. Jonathan Glazer is a genius, and I'll probably never see any of his films twice.
