    Museum of Love

    ★★★

    "It's about a guy who's so obsessed with his ex-girlfriend that he turns his house into a shrine to her," relates Slater. "He starts charging admission to people who want to come over and admire the artifacts of his lost love. It's pretty sick and obsessive. Right down my alley."

    When I decided to watch Christian Slater's full filmography, I found out that he had directed a short film titled Museum of Love. It aired on Showtime in 1996 in…

    Carrera contra la muerte

    ★★★★★

    This is a movie that I got on DVD from a bargin bin at a Mexican grocery store years ago. I know almost no Spanish(except that muerte means “death”, which is why I picked this) but it’s a weirdly compelling and entertaining film regardless.

    The plot seems to be about two brothers, Daniel Falcon(Gilberto Trujillo) and Raul Falcon(Raul Trujillo), who live an idyllic life dirtbiking on their ranch. Their father gets murdered during a dispute at a card game, so…

    ★½

    Well this looks a lot like Slam Dunk, huh?

    While there’s a rich history of cheap South Korean derivatives of other works, and at first glance Hungry Best Five might look like a rip-off of the Japanese anime/manga series Slam Dunk, surprisingly that isn't the case. It's actually an interesting curiosity in the history of Korean animation, albeit one where the story of the production is far more interesting than the actual film itself.

    Director/screenwriter/novelist Lee Kyu-hyeong had made several…

    ★★★★

    At the very moment in the opening when Eric Roberts flexes in a speedo and gazes at himself narcissistic, I knew I was in for something special.

    Roberts always plays it big, and he's great as a guy with a chip on his shoulder(The Pope of Greenwich Village is a great example), and it totally works for the character of Paul Snider. He's a schmuck and a sleazeball, terrified of his wife having an affair while having dalliances of his…

    The Gift

    ★★★

    Doesn't feel super Raimi-y except for bits and pieces(the shot of the moon over Blanchett and Kinnear at the country club, the one bit of Blanchett at the lake and the guy starts playing the fiddle). But it's a solid spooky thriller/courtoon drama, the kind that you could catch on cable and spend a nice lazy afternoon with. I almost found myself wishing for some commercial breaks.

    Pretty solid cast overall. I really enjoyed Giovani Ribisi's performance and while I…

    Tony Scott ranked

    Domino is one of those films that doesn't come up much when people talk about Tony Scott's films, so I wasn't sure what to make of it. And after watching it, I'm sitting here scratching my head and pondering whether if it's good or not.

    From the opening scene there was a ton of color saturation(a lot like his short Agent Orange, and from there it only got more insane. It's the kind of movie I would…
