    Will Work for Views: The Lo-Fi Life of Weird Paul

    ★★★★★

    I watched this at just the right time in my life. I've been struggling lately, and because of that I felt empathetic to the challenges Paul faces in the film.

    I've always liked to do my own thing, and don't always fit in well because of it. I struggle to be successful and feel proud of myself. I fight with bouts of depression and anxiety. As I watched this documentary I see these struggles in Paul's life as well. Watching…

    ★★★★

    This is great because it's like a lot of other Mad Max wannabee films from the 80's but it's all women. And while the bulk of other cheesey post-apocalyptic films often had everyone wearing identical outfits consisting of football shoulder pads and leather chaps, these women avoid that fashion faux pas and add some individuality to their wardrobes. And I really appreciate that. It makes the film stand out among its genre and helps give each character a bit of...well,…

    My Hooptober 8.0 list | Film #22
    Part of Cinemonster's Hooptober 8.0

    Criteria fulfilled:
    [x] 2 Hammer films
    [x] 6 countries: United Kingdom
    [x] 8 decades: 1950's

    I decided to follow-up the first Hammer film I have seen, The Curse of Frankenstein (which is also the first Hammer horror film) with the second Hammer horror film, Dracula (or Horror of Dracula as it's also known).

    I don't know what I could possibly say about this classic film that hasn't been…

    Criteria fulfilled:
    [x] 2 Hammer films
    [x] 6 countries: United Kingdom
    [x] 8 decades: 1950's

    Despite horror being my favorite genre of film, I'm woefully uneducated when it comes to historical horror films. So much so, that I've never seen a Hammer film. So what better place to start than with the original Hammer horror film: The Curse of Frankenstein.

    Having watched this, I can see why Hammer…

    A perfect horror film.

    I love how this film chooses to show horror. There's no handheld shaky-cam, no flickering strobe lights, no quick cuts. Instead, when something emerges from the shadows, it does so in a well-framed, carefully lit, fixed camera shot. The decision on what is and is not in focus is also made with care. And the use of music…

    My Hooptober 8.0 list | Film #17
    Part of Cinemonster's Hooptober 8.0

    Criteria fulfilled:
    [x] 2 folk horror films
    [x] 6 countries: United Kingdom

    I selected this film as one of my Hooptober folk horror choices because I am woefully ignorant on the history of folk horror, and this film is credited as a progenitor of the sub-genre. I have a love for more recent films that I didn't consciously realize were folk horror, such as The Witch, Midsommar, and…
