    The Descent

    ★★★★½

    Such a slick horror film. No time for characterizations, no fluff, jumps right into it and deep within the caverns we go. Paced wonderfully, with enough buildup for suspense before all hell breaks loose. Loved some of the pacing that goes from one crazy struggle to another right away, not giving the viewer anytime to sit back and process what they watched, echoing what it would be like to be in the shoes of the women.

    Super Size Me 2: Holy Chicken!

    ★★★

    Interesting look at the chicken industry from the farming to the restaurant's deceitful advertising, although some of the editing rubbed me the wrong way. Essentially just uses "Super Size Me" in the title for views. This is the story of the same man from the first film creating his own chicken restaurant. No food challenge contained within.

Kinski's body movement and specifically his hand gestures (as well as his jump to acceleration when throwing the chair in the dinner…

    One of those films I have been intending to watch for yearsssss and it actually lived up to the hype. Cramped psychological mind-bender that ends on a note that had me displaying a devilish grin. Great ending. Farrow delivers an all-time great horror performance.
