    As the Gods Will

    ★★★

    Trying to fill a Squid shaped hole in my life and for the first half, this Korean movie does just that. Though by the in it becomes a bit flat.

    As the Gods Will is wacky as hell though. The ball lad in the opening scene is something else. Speaking of that scene, it is probably the best of the entire movie.

    Big fan of the lead spending his free time playing Resident Evil 6, he's probably better off dying in one of the challenges rather than trying to finish that thing.

    ★★★½

    I know how hard it is for family to get along. So let review another Halloween………

    So if Halloween Kills recycled this movie it would’ve been a classic for sure. Though put next to each other, they are kinda just cool. 

    But it’s fun to see Sam Loomis crazy as hell. Wish Donald Pleasance was still around today. 

    But this second movies is just cool. After being forced
    Into existence Halloween 2 it’s surprisingly great. But also kind of corny. 

    Basically… this is one of the better slasher sequels.

    And yes, this is better than the version David Lynch put out. Shit actually happens in this one. Though that being said, Dune 2021 is very much the first part of a larger story. A…

    Halloween Kills

    ★★★½

    This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    This has to be one of the most violent movies I've watched in the cinema. Seriously, Michael Myers Kills in this one.

    But even that being said, this movie is a bit silly and unrealistic.

    Picking up basically before the credits end, this one almost feels like an extended edition if I'm being honest, but not in a bad way. Thanks to 2018 leaving it open for a sequel and that making a tone of money, this might feel a…
