• [REC]



    This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    a found-footage flick that creates its horror primarily in its brilliantly crafted realism (the framing device, characterizations, dialogues stand out as witty and believable even as stakes get higher, and that's particularly rare in a sub-genre that lends itself to the predictable and/or ludicrous) and in the powerlessness it places the audience, stuck with watching the characters in a terrible situation; it is also surprisingly political, with the police's rabid dislike to their actions being recorded and a jaw-dropping moment…

  • Cascade


    boring at worst, predictable at best. clearly a dump-it-in-netflix kind of movie. some good-looking shots sprinkled throughout, mainly when it comes to nature, but still mainly uninteresting. the lead performance belongs in a better movie.

  • Run Rabbit Run

    Run Rabbit Run


    since it doesn't have enough thematic nuance or narrative innovation to set itself apart from other average horror movies, run rabbit run made the decision to shine with an impeccable (and unbearably cold) cinematography, two magnificent lead performances and unmatched sophistication while it goes about reading through its tropey and yet sharp screenplay.

  • The Accused

    The Accused


    while jodie foster & kelly mcgillis shine with muddied personalities and their dance around the badly-aged supporting performances, there's so much unexplored potential in here; though the first act is strong and bold, the film takes a much more comfortable (for itself) tone after the first thirty minutes. between weak directing (and score, and cinematography) decisions and a subpar graphic sexual assault scene, i can't help but wonder what a filmmaker like villenueve would do with this material.

    Not really worthy it, just skip to the "CINDY! THIS IS A SKELETON! THIS IS BONES!" scene.

  • Ghosted



    Now, you tell me why this generic ass romantic action straight-to-streaming movie is 2 hours long. Who the hell made THAT decision?

  • The Lovely Bones

    The Lovely Bones


    God, this movie does not earn half of its runtime. "Directed by Peter Jackson" ... Yeah, we can tell. 14-year-old Saoirse Ronan was already a star in the making, despite the subpar writing, and the casting of Stanley Tucci as a moustache creep is disturbingly brilliant. Whoever made the choice to cast Wahlberg should be haunted in their sleep, though.
