    Heathers

    ★★★★★

    "The extreme always seems to make an impression."

    Heathers is a cult classic for a reason. If we can't laugh at the absurdity of the world's problems, we likely will do nothing about them and instead just talk about them. It's the whole point of dark comedies. The soundtrack is perfect with what each scene is trying to portray. It's a pleasant change from the usual high school love story's with more realism in the characters actions and responses to situations. Christian Slater and Winona Ryder are brilliant. The movie also has very deep characters that are extremely well developed. Overall, Heathers is an amazing movie.

    Midnight Run

    ★★★★★

    "You have two emotions, silence and rage."

    Midnight Run is a non-stop comedic cross country chase film, taking us from New York to the Chicago suburbs, through the back country of Arizona and finally the glitz and glamour of Las Vegas. Robert De Niro (Jack Walsh) is simply amazing as the bounty hunter and Charles Grodin (Jonathan Mardukas) does it superbly as the irritating accountant or bounty. The movie's direction, editing and acting by every single character makes it so real that you actually start believing all of the chase and deceit is possible! Overall, it deserves to be in everyone's all time favorites list.

  • The Witches

    The Witches

    ★★★★★

    "You can never be sure if it's a witch you're looking at or a kind lady."

    The Witches is so wonderfully crafted, entertaining and fun. It's delightfully dark, yet frothy and warm. It's a shame there aren't more fairy tale films like this one. The makeup, special effects, score, settings and performances are terrific. Anjelica Houston totally shines with her evil German accent and her black and purple fashions. This is not your typical American fantasy movie. It has such a European flavor and feel, so charming and twisted. Overall, when I watch this film I feel like a kid in a candy shop.

  • Eyes Without a Face

    Eyes Without a Face

    ★★★★★

    "Smile. Not too much."

    Eyes Without a Face for me shines like a scalpel in sunlight in the pantheon of horror history. Great performances especially by Édith Scob, who is reason alone to see the film. Maurice Jarre score is unique and helps the Georges Franju atmosphere. It's a poetic meditation on how the proverbial garbage gets dumped in a family or nation. It's also an Edgar Allan Poe-esque trip into a singularly nasty situation. Overall, Eyes Without a Face is not only significant for defining a whole new sub-genre in Horror, but it's also an all-around great film and a timeless classic of world cinema.
