    Poltergeist

    ★★★★

    Doesn't really feel so much a Horror film these days. It's obvious that Steven Spielberg held the majority of the reins, and it shows. Much of the great qualities of Poltergeist come from the interesting direction it took with its execution. There's never any doubt the house is haunted, and everyone gets on board as soon as they see weird shit. Both of these things we'd never normally see in a movie like this.

    It's unfortunate really that Hooper ever…

    House on Haunted Hill

    ★★★

    Genuinely some fun practical effects and spooky scenes, just felt more like it would have suited a stage play rather than a feature film. Vincent Price plays the creep excellently however.

    Also, the exterior to the so-called house looked more like a postmodern library, and it wasn't on a hill either.

    ★★★★½

    An excellent look at the divide between high class and popular culture and the ignorance that one is more relevant than the other is. Also an excellent way of looking at how actors will view themselves in the contexts of their popularity despite that not really being something that really matters at all.

    The cinematography style was flawless and well executed making the film flow almost as if it was the theatre.

    Wonderful picture.

  • Logan

    Logan

    ★★★★

    This is a story about ordinary people, with extraordinary abilities just trying to live their lives. Or in the case of Logan himself, living without even knowing why anymore. It's a road movie. It's a thriller. It's an action movie, but most of all, Logan is living proof that the superhero genre still has a hell of a lot of staying power, giving the most unique, ambitious, and risky depiction of a Superhero franchise yet.

    It's Patrick Stewart's best performance…
