    This film is a cyberpunk fever dream and I refuse to apologize for loving it. Its surprisingly cohesive worldbuilding gives this dystopic nightmare a tangible feel, full of fungus and grime and garbage. A piss-poor adaptation, sure, but as bold as any studio will ever release for a video game adaptation in our lifetimes.

    While the first Hellraiser film was a fairly low scale, self-contained piece of horror, its coda and antagonists hinted at a much larger world - one that is brought about in the gruesome sequel, Hellbound.

That's a rare alchemy indeed.

    Film 3/3 from director Ridley Scott

    Well, this is it. I’ve been putting off this review for a while. I’ve seen it a few times since joining Letterboxd. I have a tiny little review of it that I posted early. It’s one of the few films I have rated at 5 stars, and will likely always sit in my top 4 on my profile. It is a defining film for me; not just in my tastes, but how…
