    Between Two Ferns: The Movie

    ★★★★

    Corny and campy mockumentary? Yes. As a fan of the Between Two Ferns web shorts, I wasn’t disappointed. Hopefully they’ll release full length interview footage eventually to complete the experience.

    It Chapter Two

    ★★½

    This is like a funhouse mirror version of its predecessor; distorted and silly. It had one cool scene amidst everything else that wasn’t even remotely scary. Also, the chemistry between these adult counterparts weren’t as strong, which is a shame because I could buy the physical resemblances to their kid selves. And finally, oh Stephen King, you lost me with Indigenous peoples’ mysticism trope tie in. This was not a horror movie anymore, it’s dark comedy. Anyone expecting otherwise ain’t (Penny)wise.

    TRIGGER WARNING: If your favorite anime is also Kill La Kill, you will understand the depths of my disappointment that is this movie, which is pretty much repackaged KLK wrapped with a big bow of your typical Triggerisms. On top of this, the CGI was rough, story as basic as can be, couldn’t tell what I was looking at during action scenes, and couldn’t be made to really care about these characters. The only positive here is the color pallete. Yayyyy~~~

    Amazing amazing amazing!!!! Twists and turns and lots of fun as expected from the director of Oldboy. Beautiful cinematography and costumes elevate this erotic drama as one for the ages. Half a star off for being a tad too male-gazey but otherwise, fantastic film.
