    Martha Marcy May Marlene

    ★★★★½

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

    A total misrepresentation of cults. Never once was I drugged when the cult leader took advantage of me and we only stabbed people who didn't believe in the antichrist.

  • Big Trouble in Little China

    Big Trouble in Little China

    ★★★★★

    'Big Trouble in Little China... I had never thought of as being a Dracula... following the Dracula formula. Maybe I'm mental, maybe I'm late to the party, maybe I'm the only one, but it follows it pretty strongly. Lo Pan is Dracula. His hideout is Dracula's Castle. Jack Burton is Jonathan Harker.

  • Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them

    Peter Parker had it easy.

  • Jaws

    Jaws

    ★★★★★

    A tragic tale of a lost and distressed fish hunted down by an aquaphobic police chief, a disgraced oceanographer trying to regain some of his tarnished reputation and a nasty drunk with a fetish for bowlegged women. All of them egged on by a corrupt mayor trying to find someone or something to blame for his small islands dwindling tourist industry and his poor taste in fashion. I wish it had a happy ending, but they even go so far as to insult the fishes mother before finally commiting the coup de grace. Shameful stuff. Five stars.
