    Flesh + Blood

    ★★★

    When you think about it, FLESH + BLOOD could be the title to any Paul Verhoeven movie (or an essay on his filmography) and it would still make sense.

  • Forty Guns

    ★★★

    Has the edge of Fuller's best (there are some sequences that look and feel downright dangerous), but the story didn't draw me in the way the filmmaking did.

    It seems that over the past few decades, we've lost the B-movie. Most genre films that would've fit the bill have now become $100 million blockbusters, while the rest of them have been downgraded to z-level schlock on the DVD shelf, leading to a common misuse of the phrase. So it's refreshing to see a film like BONE TOMAHAWK that fits the technical definition of a B-movie, embracing and making the most of its low budget.

    I like to think, because it uses the same sets and was produced around the same time, that this takes place in the same universe as Monty Python's LIFE OF BRIAN.
