    ★★½

    So after visiting Hawaiʻi Volcanoes National Park, we just had to watch a volcano disaster flick. As expected, this film was absolute nonsense. Cheesy special effects, cringe-worthy dialogue, a loaded cast that was wasted, a bullshit attempt at providing commentary about racism... lots went wrong here.

    Yet somehow I don't regret watching this.

    A Nightmare on Elm Street 3: Dream Warriors

    ★★★½

    Man, Patricia Arquette has some pipes.

    This was fun. I liked that it basically ignored the entire second entry in the series, instead choosing to expand upon the story set by the first movie. Nice to see Heather Langenkamp and John Saxon again, not to mention "Larry" Fishburne and a genius cameo from Zsa Zsa Gabor.

    Some pretty memorable kills, too, although it seems Freddy is starting to venture into more comedic territory now.

    So it all goes downhill from here, eh? Still looking forward to continuing through the series.

    Dead Snow 2: Red vs. Dead

    ★★★★

    Dead Snow: Red vs. Dead is the type of movie that will rip your arm off, pull your intestines out and then run you over with a tank — just because it can. Set immediately after the original film’s ending (there is a quick primer first just in case you need a refresher on what happened), it’s clear right away just what this much-anticipated sequel has in store. The budget is much bigger, the cast is larger, and the special effects are significantly improved. This is Dead Snow cranked to 11.

    Bullhead

    ★★★★

    Was not expecting this to be so depressing. A fascinating character study of someone who suffered an incredibly traumatic experience as a boy, and now struggles to maintain a normal life. Bullhead has an amazing performance from Matthias Schoenaerts in the lead role, someone I was unfamiliar with beforehand. This one got a well-deserved Oscar nod for Best Foreign Language Film last year.
