    Stake Land II: The Stakelander

    ★★★

    I try to support Jim Mickle and Nick Damici in all of their endeavors. This one was written by and stars Damici, whose terse, starchy screen presence I find highly appealing. It is directed by two randos but retains the post-apocalyptic vampire Western vibe of the original, though the young co-star is a bit of a dip.

    ★★

    If you ever wanted to watch Anthony Hopkins fuck Ann-Margret while a ventriloquist's dummy looks on, have I got the movie for you.

    No Escape

    ★★★

    It turns out there was an escape. This is what I call the ol' switcheroo.

    This is a decent "save the white people from the other people" movie, but on the Brosnan scale I give it five out of five Brosnans. Some excellent Brosnan-ing here.

    Young Mr. Lincoln

    ★★★★★

    “Suppose some truant good fairy were to ask me … ‘Is there some American film you’d like me to make you the author of – with a wave of my wand?’ I would not hesitate to accept the offer, and I would at once name the film that I wish I had made. It would be Young Mr. Lincoln directed by John Ford.” -Sergei Eisenstein
