    The Greasy Strangler

    ★★★★

    If you could somehow crossbreed the works of John Waters, Todd Solondz, Harmony Korine, and Time & Eric, you might end up with something like THE GREASY STRANGLER. Or, you might not - this film might just really be THAT unique, so much that it defies all possible categorization. I honestly have no idea how to even talk about this movie. Heck, while I was watching it, and for some time after, I wasn't sure of anything anymore. It's a reality…

    Batman: Return of the Caped Crusaders

    ★★★½

    A nice treat for fans of the Batman '66 live-action series, this animated film returns to that world and even features the voice talents of surviving cast members Adam West, Burt Ward, and Julie Newmar.

    John Wick: Chapter 2

    ★★★★½

    JOHN WICK: CHAPTER 2 is a near-perfect escalation of the instant action-classic first film. Here we have even better action (and that's saying something), a more compelling villain, a fun new batch of characters, beautiful cinematography and colorful visuals, and a really cool expansion of the fascinating underground world of assassins that the last movie introduced us to. The only thing that really hampers JOHN WICK: CHAPTER 2 is that the basic story feels a little more generic and familiar…
