    Scream VI


    After the previous film followed through on its legacy sequel/requel plot by naming itself exactly like the original film that started it all, Scream VI boldly places itself in the number six spot of the now self-proclaimed franchise and again reincorporates its own existence into the plot mechanics and flat out tells the audience to not even come here if you can't or won't keep up with the previous installments but, in order to not alienate too many new viewers,…

    The killer we live in

    Viewing something is not equal to endorsing it. Viewing it is voluntarily putting yourself into the shoes of someone that isn't you or is you, couldn't be you or could be you, would never be you or would maybe be you. The options are endless but if you always…

    Slumber Party Massacre


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

    I went into this with a completely open mind because I don't have any overly great reverence for the original since I didn't see it for the first time until fairly recently.

    To properly discuss this reboot, I'm putting the spoiler tag on, because you just need to address the tone shift and the main script conceit in order to fully appreciate what the film is doing well, even though it's that very same thing that is ultimately spoiling the…

  • Patton



    One word, one name, is enough to evoke a certain idea of combat, of masculinity and character traits as well as overflowing love and hate alike, I imagine, for the person who carries that name. George C. Scott delivers an outstanding performance of the man in question in a film that seeks to paint him in all kinds of different lights, cruel and commanding, ambitious and angry, benevolent and bullying, dedicated and delusional.

    It's with subtle things, like the recital…

    Marlina the Murderer in Four Acts


    An Indonesian rape and revenge film that somehow feels less exploitative and more grounded than comparable genre-fare. Also, it's not as visually dark and depressing as one might expect from such material but rather glary.

    It's definitely a mood-piece because the film relies heavily on its images along Marlina's journey and is therein definitely akin to the western genre, which also applies to the plot, which is pretty straightforward and without too many twists or turns. Some might take away…

    The Invisible Man


    This film shouldn't work.

    The title basically tells you exactly what kind of a story you're in for. It brings a plethora of expectations with it and, even if you just heard the trailer during previews you'll have picked up on a couple of spoilery details and of course there's a lot of invisibility lore to draw from under the guise of this title (a lore, which I'll actually plan to catch up on, courtesy of an Invisible Man films…
