    DIRECTOR'S CUT viewing.

    Far superior to the garbage released in theaters, this turns Mann's worst film into a pretty damn solid flick.

  • Ghost in the Machine

    My german limited edition blu ray took four fucking months to arrive and when I popped this glorious son of a bitch into my player, it soon became worth every... agonizing... day I waited.

    The Return of the Texas Chainsaw Massacre

    ★★★½

    Unhinged performances from McConaughey(sporting a BIO-MECHANICAL FUCKING LEG) and Bobby Jacks as Leatherface, a third act that bubbles and boils to PURE FUCKING CHAOS, and Kim Henkel’s complete inability to write human beings are all things that are helping this installment slowly rise in the franchise rankings for me. I implore anyone with an inkling of a doubt to pour a double and revisit immediately.

    Middle America HENRY PORTRAIT OF A SERIAL KILLER by way of early 16mm Unsolved Mysteries recreations, this is exactly my shit. So fucking good.
