    The Texas Chainsaw Massacre 2

    ★★★★★

    "You have one choice, boy: sex or the saw. Sex is, well... Nobody knows. But the saw... The saw is family."

    Every time I watched The Texas Chainsaw Massacre 2 before today I was blinded by the romantic comedy aspects of the film and the relationship issues that our young couple faced. It kept me from appreciating the other themes of the film, such as family and the lengths that the small businessman needs to go to in order to…

    Stoker

    ★★★★★

    "Have you ever seen a picture of yourself, taken when you didn't know you were being photographed, from an angle that you don't usually see when you look in a mirror, and you think: 'That's me... that's ALSO me.' Do you know what I'm talking about?"

    From the opening we realize that India Stoker is no ordinary young woman. She seems keenly aware of who she is and from whence she came. She's embarking on a journey that she's been…

    Sleepwalkers

    ★★★★

    "I don't believe you fired a warning shot, Officer."

    Watching Sleepwalkers tonight I'm not sure why I hated it so much when I first saw it back in '93, but I did. I thought it was an absolute piece of shit. Tonight my wife and I had a lot of fun with it, picking out all of the cameos and the character actors that we haven't seen much of lately unless watching old favorites.

    The pacing on this film is…

  • Possum

    Possum

    ★★★★

    "Wait a while, my little child, for what is playing dead. Possum, with his black balloons, will eat you up in bed."

    Well, now. I was expecting something dark and batshit insane, but the added little family fuckery really was the icing on the cake.

  • Nightcrawler

    Nightcrawler

    ★★★★½

    "Why you pursue something is as important as what you pursue."

    Jake Gyllenhaal is creepiness personified in the character of Louis Bloom. He shares a number of personality traits with a certain Travis Bickle, but Lou learns fast. He does the research. He knows just enough to make himself very dangerous. To the people he works with. To the people he films. And to anyone who might get in the way of him getting his story. Even the story is…

  • Identity

    Identity

    ★★★★½

    "As I was going up the stairs, I met a man who wasn't there. He wasn't there again today. I wish, I wish he'd go away."

    I first saw Identity in 2003 and was left not knowing exactly how I felt about it. It seemed like the clues were laid out as to what was happening all along, but I didn't feel like watching it again to see if that was the case. It was on Starz a couple months…
