    Intruders

    ★★★½

    I am always up for a "damn, these home invaders sure picked the wrong mousy agoraphobe lady to fuck with!" movie, and for most of this movie this does very well by its premise. Knowing nothing about this going in, I found surprises throughout, big and small, and was mostly delighted.

    There's a backstory that for about 2/3 of its length is not explicit but it is (or seems) unmistakeable, and as long as it was keeping that vague I…

    Demonic Toys: Personal Demons

    ★½

    It's hard to imagine there being much demand for another Demonic Toys movie in 2010, but SyFy made one in 2004 so what do I know?

I am caught between befuddlement and admiration.

    This third gulp at the can dispenses with the dropout-Cronenberg medical horror of the…

    Mad Max: Fury Road

    ★★★★½

    George Miller had been talking about this - or at least, had been persistently asked about it in interviews - for like twenty years now, and I don't know what's different about now that he finally got around to making it but I'm glad he did. The response on this has been gobsmacking, though I was willing to chalk a fair bit of it up to Peak Gen-X Nostalgia, and it coming at a good time to be heralded as…
