    Hands down the best movie about the straight-edge lifestyle and the subjective experience of being “mixed race.” Didn’t realize how much the style and editing prefigured the Matrix (1999). Matrix definitely wins in choreography but Blade is better overall.

    The OPPOSITE of Crank. It’s like something terrible will happen if Statham loses his cool. So many loose threads and random flourishes — my favorite moment is when Statham’s retort to the squad’s gaybaiting is a little too anatomically detailed and he’s forced to backtrack the conversation. This is the problem with inside jobs, you can’t up the ante in the locker room like you can with your home team.
