    The Void

    ★★

    If this is what 80's horror was like, I'm happy I didn't live back then.

    The Void is a low budget horror movie with an incredibly beautiful marketing campaign, but sadly, it fails in being more than a messy and trashy B movie that copies elements from classic horror movies but can't find a way to put them into some sort of story in an interesting way. It seems like the creators of this movie tried a little bit too hard to make a 'cult movie'.

    A Cure for Wellness

    ★★★½

    A Cure for Big Budget Movies.

    Gore Verbinski enfolds his vision in an extraordinary tale of cure and desease that while not being extremely innovative totally delivers in style and suspense. What makes this movie great, however, is it's amount of pure madness that not many recent movies with such a budget have in common. That movies like this one still get money is a miracle that hopefully will live on.

    Love Exposure

    ★★★★★

    I don't know if it's even possible to talk about this film in a short review like this one.
    Love Exposure is epic, funny, innovative, fresh, disturbing, shocking, heavy, bloody, crazy, hilarious, dramatic, sad, long, poetic, monumental, odd, clever, thrilling, weird, beautiful, during it's 4 hours of runtime not one second boring, and so so so much more...
    You really can't describe it. You have to see it!

    Definitely one of my favorite films. Can't wait to see more from Sion Sono.

  • Don't Breathe

    Don't Breathe

    ★★★½

    Inexplicable easy break-ins into highly secured surroundings, dogs neutralized by intoxicated wieners, attempts to escape through ventilation shafts. Is this the first faithful movie adaptation of Hitman?
