    2048: Nowhere to Run

    Three factors that make Luke Scott's short intriguing.
    1. Scott can make Dave Bautista do the serious acting convincingly.
    2. The cyberpunk world is legit.
    3. The short action sequence is slick.

    But, yes, it's still hard to grasp what it is about in conjunction with 2049.

  • Little Evil

    Little Evil

    ★★★

    Director of Tucker & Dale vs. Evil is at it again, but now he's playing with family horror tropes (with nods to films like The Omen, Rosemary's Baby; and some references to The Shining, Poltergeist).
    While it's not quite as horror-thriller spectacle as Eli Craig's directorial debut, but it works as a lukewarm, heartfelt horror-comedy.

  • Edge of Tomorrow

    Edge of Tomorrow

    ★★★½

    If you think Elysium's exoskeleton is formidable and Pacific Rim is heroically comical, you might get a glimpse of how Edge of Tomorrow looks.This film looks bluntly like a mash-up of modern sci-fi invasion but with massive rampage and clever, playful plot---it makes you feel like playing an arcade game with "almost" infinite restart button. Edge of Tomorrow has the potential of being this year's sleeper hit.

  • Being John Malkovich

    Being John Malkovich

    ★★★★★

    Amazing world, character, and narrative building from Charlie Kaufman with perfect direction from Spike Jonze is the main reason this film become a spike to cinema history. Along with Malkovich, stars like Cusack, Diaz, and Keener really shines in an appropriate way.
