    Snake Eyes: G.I. Joe Origins

    ½

    "Oh, fuck this!"

    That's the only quote on the IMDB page, and it sums up my feelings towards this movie.

    Snake Eyes takes itself seriously while doing the most cliché bullshit. The main character has less charm than a rock. I was bored out of my fucking mind.

    The end credits are disgraceful and really highlight how the movie uses Japan and the Japanese culture for spectacle. Snake Eyes is what happens when you let idiots butcher an established character to create an American blockbuster with Japanese elements.

    ★½

    "Memories are like perfume: better in small doses."

    A noir mystery but it has a major flaw: nothing interesting ever happens. The characters get no development, so I don't care about them.

    The overarching theme of Suicide Club is the disconnect present in society and the influence pop culture has on young people. Computers, cell phones, and TV connect everyone…

    The Thing

    ★★★★★

    This is one of my favorite films ever. It is the perfect blend of sci-fi and horror. The special effects are so well done that even decades later they remain a disturbing sight; modern movies should watch The Thing and weep in shame.

    The characters, the paranoia, the sense of claustrophobic doom, it's all brilliantly done.

    I watched this movie when I was decently young, so it holds a special place in my heart as being one of the few films that ever managed to scare me.
