  • Early Man

    Early Man

    ★★★½

    "A bit early, innit Dug?"
    "But Chief, we're Early Man!"

    Classic Aardman goodness. I'm glad to see they're still doing what they do best. Great claymation, goofy character designs, lots of humor and fun, and of course rabbits.

This is not a Star Wars film, it's a…

    Vampire Hunter D: Bloodlust

    ★★★★

    A 21st century sequel/reboot to a beloved and unique 80s movie that actually improves on the original in every way? How often does that happen?
    Vampire Hunter D: Bloodlust is the best kind of sequel: it takes what the original did well (the worldbuilding, atmosphere, and action), and uses it as a starting point to do something new. The post-apocalyptic sci-fi/Gothic horror/gritty western setting of the original Vampire Hunter D is expanded on greatly, with new creatures, new settings, and…
