    The Beast Must Die

    ★★½

    I wish every movie had a ‘werewolf break’ so you could guess who the werewolf is. Regardless of whether it’s a werewolf movie or not.

    The Keep

    ★★★

    I can’t think of anything more you could want in a crazy 80s fantasy-horror film about an old fortress monster vs nazis vs Scott Glenn featuring the music of Tangerine Dream. 
    Michael Mann’s best movie.

    The Nice Guys

    ★★★★

    A delightful romp that's a refreshing throwback to the action buddy cop movies from the 80s... Set in the 70s!

    As always Ryan Gosling steals the show, in a cast where everyone was almost as good.

    Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon: Sword of Destiny

    ★★

    Ang Lee's Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon was a beautiful living work of art with gorgeous cinematography and eye-watering fight sequences.

    Sword of Destiny feels like uninspired cash in on that movie's good name.

    at least there's a lot of action, though lack-luster and mundane action, to at least keep it somewhat watchable.
