    Unfriended: Dark Web

    ★★★★

    This is so fucking mean-spirited and I am HERE FOR IT. It's striking that these Unfriended movies use modern technology to capture the spirit of the old EC Comics - pitiless & mordantly funny morality tales where the game is always rigged against the protagonists.

    It is something of a rare achievement that, under the aegis of Netflix, a series of promising genre filmmakers - Adam Wingard, Jeremy Saulnier, Mike Flanagan, and now Gareth Evans - have created easily the worst work of their careers. As such it's fitting, although depressing, that I watched this turd on the same day that I finished the maudlin & monumentally underwhelming Haunting of Hill House. It's also amazing that Gareth Evans made a movie even worse than Raid 2 - damn, dude.

    ★★

    Tasteful and restrained, Demon is a horror movie for people who don't like horror movies. I intend that as an insult.

    Ghostbusters

    ★★★½

    I enjoyed this movie and laughed and was entertained but woe! woe unto me! for I should have listened to the learned scholars of reddit, who scried with their varied runes of mountain dew and doritos dust that a man could not gaze upon the full power of a movie filled with women and escape unscathed - and so it was that as the credits rolled my balls fell out of my body and my dick flew clean off like a sad roman candle made of meat
